Spectrum asks: “Is EU-GMP good for the cannabis industry?”
ccording to a 2019 report by Ellipse Analytics and CBS Austin, up to 70% of 240 of the bestselling CBD products available online might contain harmful impurities such as heavy metals, chemical pesticides and toxic mould contaminants. So, meeting EU-GMP standards is not only critical for customer safety but also for business expansion into the lucrative new European and UK markets for medical cannabis products, with some governments (such as Cyprus) selecting suppliers largely based on their EU-GMP compliance
