Quality Assurance is the process and set of protocols that a cannabis production company follows to ensure that flower material and derivative products are consistent and safe to consume. In a highly regulated setting, the protocols can be intensive.
Most license applications require submission of a Quality Control Procedure or Quality Assurance Plan so the applicant can prove to government regulators that appropriate measures have been considered and implemented. This includes proper measuring of substances, cross-checking of all documentation, packaging and labeling standards, and many other components.

Hi, I'm Jennifer Martin, the creator of this website and a veteran commercial grower and cultivation consultant. My colleague and I created these operating plan documents to help cannabis business operators legitimize and streamline their operations. With hundreds of satisfied customers under our belts, we are certain that we've got the best starter templates for cannabis operators available online.
Unlike other cannabis websites, this business is owner operated and I personally stand behind the quality of the available products and services.
