ASTM International Approves Suite of Cannabis Standards

ASTM International’s cannabis committee (D37) recently approved a suite of three new standards related to environmental conditions during packaging, transit, and storage of cannabis and hemp flower.

“These standards are designed to support the safety and quality of packaged cannabis and hemp flower as it moves through the supply chain,” notes ASTM member Jonathan DeVries. “This includes the activities following curing and drying, namely packaging, transit, and storage, until it reaches the final end user.”
