Cannabis Product Safety and Labeling is a cornerstone document for any legal cannabis business, whether for cultivation or extraction and infusion. This Plan is customized to match up with the requirements of the State of Illinois and addressed each of their Measures listed in Exhibit E (above).

We have used text that cross references the IL cannabis regulations and application requirements with what we’ve found in other state regulations as well as Canadian and European regulations and the pharmaceutical industry.

The first goal of the document is to help make it easy for you to obtain a craft grower license for the cultivation of cannabis in Illinois, but the longer-term goal is to help you establish accurate and well documented procedures for the purity, labeling and tracking of your cannabis products.
