Cannabis testing lab to open

US (VT): Bringing robust safety compliance testing to Vermont's patients and consumers

Steep Hill expands with a new licensee partner into the state of Vermont. In 2004, Vermont legalized cannabis for medicinal use, and more recently, in 2020, Vermont became the 11th state to approve adult-use sales. Licensee Steep Hill Vermont is the first analytics laboratory to receive pre-approval from the State of Vermont.

Steep Hill Inc. CEO Sameet Kanade announced, "We are delighted to partner with Steep Hill Vermont, a dynamic, entrepreneurial group with a comprehensive industrial, scientific, and business management background. Their group has rich experience in the cannabis industry, and we look forward to working with them to bring robust safety compliance testing to Vermont's medical patients and adult consumers."

Steep Hill Vermont Lab Director Callie Chapman added, "Working with the State of Vermont, our laboratory plans to expand cannabis testing services while offering quick turnaround times and educational resources for cultivators, manufacturers, and other industry participants. Our goal is to be a key partner in the success of the Green Mountain State's adult use market and continue to grow our industry." Steep Hill Vermont is projected to support cannabis and hemp cultivation and processor customers by the fall of 2022.

"What I believe the cannabis industry continues to need is a 'compliantly rebellious' scientific attitude. An attitude owned by those of us who are not afraid to push on the limits of societal norms while remaining compliant to the science and regulation that governs product safety. This synergy will raise the bar for the entire industry keeping cannabis safe and effective for all who partake."

Steep Hill Vermont CSO Dr. Scialdone added, "We chose to partner with Steep Hill because of their breadth of experience from opening multiple cannabis testing labs across the country that are considered the gold standard for quality results, rapid turnaround time, and impeccable customer service. Vermont has long had the status of the Humboldt County of the East, having a long tradition in cannabis, so opening a testing lab here makes sense on many levels."
