About Us

Origin

The Laboratory Guild was founded by a group of cannabis laboratories with a mission to promote the highest quality cannabis laboratory standards and to strengthen the national cannabis laboratory network through leadership along with expert quality laboratory testing to reduce the testing variability and improve interlaboratory reproducibility.


Since July of 2018, the Laboratory Guild has been working on establishing standards for the cannabis analysis laboratories and with so many issues already persisting with the quality assurance, it is going to take a concerted effort comprised of professionals to establish an equitable system that works for all including the end consumer.

Mission

Washington State Campaign

Our current campaign to standardize the state accredited (soon to be licensed) laboratories in Washington State is projected to continue through 2024. This projection is based on the forecast provided to us by the Washington State Department of Ecology, and the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.
