Cannabis Quality Control



Cannabis Quality Control = Pharmaceutical Quality Standards

A top concern among cannabis producers is achieving and maintaining Quality Control (QC) standards in the production facility. This is where we can help you. Cannabis Quality Control (CQC) is the Microbiology Network’s new division devoted to consulting and training specifically for the Cannabis industry.

  • Differentiate your product and brand from those lacking quality standards.

  • Establish systems to consistently manufacture products of the highest quality.

  • Save money by reducing the risk of rejecting products and increase overall quality.




CQC (Cannabis Quality Control) provides training and consultation throughout the cannabis production process. We can help you develop and maintain Good Manufacturing Practice standards in your facility, diagnose problems and identify solutions which will differentiate and elevate your product and brand from those who don’t have those standards in place, save you money due to product rejection, and establish systems that support manufacturing consistent products of the highest quality.
