Good Manufacturing Practices

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is the aspect of quality assurance that ensures that medicinal products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the product specification. The World Health Assembly accepted the first version of the Certification Scheme on the quality of pharmaceutical products.

GMP defines quality measures for both production and quality control and defines general measures to ensure that processes necessary for production and testing are clearly defined, validated, reviewed, and documented and that the personnel, premises, and materials are suitable for the production of pharmaceuticals and biologicals including vaccines.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) are, in most cases, interchangeable. GMP meaning the basic regulation promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensure that manufacturers are taking proactive steps to guarantee their products are safe and effective. cGMP, on the other hand, was implemented by the FDA to ensure continuous improvement in the approach of manufacturers to product quality. 

The GMP Unified Standards for the Cannabis Industry Aim to Elevate Product Quality & Safety by Establishing Comprehensive Guidelines That Span Across All Key Facets of the Industry, Including Cultivation, Extraction, & Retail. These Standards Are Crafted to Be Proactive, Focusing on Quality Management Throughout the Production Process, Rather Than Solely Relying on Post-Production Testing. This Approach Not Only Enhances Consumer Safety but Also Promotes Operational Efficiency & Product Consistency Within the Cannabis Sector.

Good Laboratory Practices

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) is a quality system of management controls for research laboratories and organizations to ensure the uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality, and integrity of products in development for human or animal health (including pharmaceuticals) through non-clinical safety tests; from physio-chemical properties.

Good Laboratory Practices are put in place to protect the quality of laboratory data. In any pharmaceutical lab, Good Laboratory Practice is based on written documentation of the work being done. These are Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). SOPs detail the different practices to follow for the purpose of cannabis quality assurance standards. 

The main goal is to promote consistency across all practices in a laboratory setting. SOPs should cover the purpose of a procedure, the responsible personnel, and the step-by-step actions that need to be taken. With clear guidelines, labs can ensure transparency and accountability in the event of any production errors. It is essential that quality is not sacrificed at any production stage.

Good Laboratory Practices Form the Bedrock Upon Which High-Quality, Reliable & Reproducible Laboratory Work Is Built. By Adhering to These Principles, Laboratories Can Assure Stakeholders of the Integrity & Reliability of Their Data, Thus Contributing to the Advancement of Scientific Knowledge & the Development of Safe & Effective Products & Technologies. Enhanceing the Credibility of Research.

Good Agriculture & Collection Practices

Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) guidelines were developed to create a single supranational framework to ensure appropriate and consistent quality in the cultivation and production of medicinal plants and herbal substances. They were developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the aim of improving the quality of medicinal plants being used in herbal medicines in the commercial market.

The GACP guidelines provide a basis for homogenized national or regional standards for the cultivation and collection of medicinal plants and should therefore be viewed as an effective “working tool” whose benefits are to reduce waste, ensure the quality of raw material, and gain market credibility.

Production and primary processing of medicinal plants and herbal substances have a direct influence on the final quality of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) produced and such production and primary processing actions can constitute the first step in the quality assurance process, which is central to compliance with the GACP guidelines.

What does the USDA do? Serves as a Blueprint for Entities of All Sizes Within the Industry, By Utilizing These Guidelines & Assessment Tools, the Industry Can Assure the Integrity of Herbal Materials Used in Consumer Products.
This Includes Ensuring Accurate Identification, the Absence of Harmful Contaminants, & Compliance With Quality Standards. These Practices Directly Impact the Quality of the Product.

And That's Why You've Been Taught ALL About Cannabis WRONG

Date: May 22, 2024
From the desk of Evan Erickson

Why We’re Pioneering Workforce Development in Cannabis.

Cannabis Workforce Training Is Crucial. We’re Transforming How It’s Done.

Imagine this common situation…

You’ve developed a critical training program—something every team member in your cannabis operation needs to understand thoroughly.

Maybe it’s a new compliance policy, an innovative cultivation method, or a crucial health and safety update. Or, perhaps you’ve refined your customer service approach.

The key is, that there’s essential knowledge to impart, and it’s vital that everyone receives this training uniformly.

As the head of a fast-growing cannabis company, I frequently faced this challenge. My go-to solution often began with…

Enhance Your Team's Expertise & Establish Credibility
"Let’s schedule a ‘Whole Team Training’ Session…”

While comprehensive training sessions are valuable, what if the training can’t wait for the next scheduled session? Do you hastily organize a training every time there’s a vital update?

This might be feasible for smaller teams, but as your operation grows… it becomes untenable!

Today, frequent in-person training sessions are not just impractical; they can be risky and potentially non-compliant.

So, while comprehensive group training is beneficial, it alone isn’t sufficient in today’s ever-evolving cannabis industry.

Then, what’s the best approach?

What about Online Learning Platforms?

Online learning platforms are invaluable.

We rely on them, and you probably do too.

But it’s a known issue that critical training content can easily be lost in the flow of ongoing digital engagements… buried under other operational updates or casual discussions.

Like when we needed to quickly roll out a crucial safety protocol update. That vital information almost got overlooked in the digital environment…

Recess Transforms into Your Workforce Training, Engagement & Optimization POWERHOUSE

The approach goes beyond traditional training methods.

Because of the regulatory landscape and the technicalities of cultivation and processing, there is much to learn. The most crucial aspect often overlooked is the actual workforce itself…

It’s not sufficient to simply train employees in standard procedures and expect peak performance and commitment. 

Employees seek engagement and connection with their roles and each other. They need to feel valued and trusted and understand their role in the bigger picture of the industry.

Successful operators focus on aligning training with employees’ needs, ensuring they feel equipped and motivated at every stage of their career journey. 

At the same time, they understand how to make training accessible and relevant, ensuring that content is delivered effectively.

In essence, if you want to be successful…

Employees come FIRST. The training methodology comes second.

Uniting your team around workforce development isn't a walk in the park...

That’s why we’ve created an educational toolkit for you to implement with your team immediately. In just a few minutes, you can initiate a weekly knowledge check-in survey to identify where your team may need more support or further training.

This single feature has our clients celebrating. There’s much more to explore, but if this piques your interest… it’s time to start your free journey now.

Effective training is a DIALOGUE. Every tool in Recess is designed to enhance your educational interactions with your team today!

Essential Guide to Workforce Development in Cannabis…

We’ll delve into what workforce development entails in the cannabis industry, its significance, and how to begin crafting your workforce development strategy immediately.

What is Workforce Development in Cannabis? Let's dive into this concept.

You might be pondering the essence of workforce development in the cannabis industry. Reflecting on the most effective leaders and teams I’ve encountered, I realized they share a pivotal attribute: mastery in internal educational communication.

This isn’t just about a one-time training session; it’s about consistently reinforcing the importance and impact of each individual’s role and the company’s mission.

It involves igniting a passion within the team for the ongoing developments in the cannabis world. We’ll explore this in depth, but I believe the key to thriving cannabis operations today lies in embracing robust workforce development.

So, what does it entail?

Workforce Development in Cannabis is the process of energizing your team, empowering their growth, sparking their innovation, and measuring their progress.

To better understand this, let’s contrast it with its counterpart. The first question might be, “What is traditional workforce training?”.

In conventional business courses, you might recall learning about training and development basics. However, in the cannabis industry, workforce development goes beyond these fundamentals.

It’s about nurturing a well-informed, skilled team that’s aligned with the dynamic nature of the cannabis sector, focusing on specialized knowledge in cultivation, retail, manufacturing, and lab operations.

In any business class, you might recall “The Four P’s of Marketing” – Product, Price, Placement, and Promotion.

These principles are foundational in marketing education, focusing on having a great product, pricing it correctly, placing it where it’s most effective, and promoting it to the right audience.

Just as these principles are crucial for marketing success, they can be reimagined for Workforce Development in the cannabis industry, transforming into “The Four E’s of Workforce Development.”

This formula, though adapted, remains a tried and true strategy.

Despite changing channels and evolving technology, these core components are essential for building a successful, motivated, and cohesive team in the dynamic cannabis industry.

Adapting these concepts to workforce development, particularly in the realm of professional development in the cannabis industry, requires rethinking what our “product” is.

In this context, our “product” isn’t a tangible item but the crucial information and skills we impart to our team.

This message might be about an upcoming product launch in the cannabis sector, involving all the intricate details they need to grasp for effective customer engagement and sales.

It’s about effectively communicating and instilling in our employees the core ideas and principles they need to absorb and embody.

If it’s critical for the team to uniformly represent and articulate the specifics of a new strain or a retail strategy, this becomes an ongoing endeavor, a rhythm that we must maintain relentlessly.

There is no shortcut in this internal marketing of ideas and skills.

Just as with traditional marketing, repetition, and frequency are vital in ensuring that these crucial messages are not just heard but deeply understood and implemented by every team member.
