What’s New for 2022

As US lawmakers inch closer to lifting the onerous restrictions on research into medicinal cannabis, the need for interdisciplinary collaboration between the pharmaceutical and cannabis industries has never been clearer, or more essential. Canna Pharma 2022 will feature a two-track program devoted to non-pharmaceutical (or nutraceutical) cannabis product development, safety testing, quality control, and regulatory compliance (Day One) AND expanded, in-depth coverage of cannabinoid-derived pharmaceutical development and the regulatory expectations for novel cannabis-based pharmaceutical products (Day Two). Canna Pharma 2022, in partnership with EAS Consulting, will also provide an expert how-to workshop on GMPs for the cannabis industry, helping you and your employees meet critical quality and regulatory expectations. Join pre-clinical and clinical research scientists, product developers, cannabis cultivators, processors, and quality assurance professionals, who will come together this October to advance the science of medicinal cannabis.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for the Cannabis Industry

The Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) dictated in FDA’s 21 CFR 111 require that “Each person engaged in manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding, or in performing any quality control operations, must have the education, training, or experience to perform the person’s assigned functions.” EAS Consulting Group is presenting a half-day workshop covering a GMP overview for the cannabis industry, including expectations and compliance requirements to help your employees stay on top of critical quality and safety issues. 

This workshop can be used as part of an annual GMP refresher training and will provide a deeper under- standing of how to perform specific job responsibilities in a GMP compliant manner. This GMP workshop will benefit anyone involved in direct handling of cannabis products, especially product manufacturers and processors.
