Quality Assurance (QA) protocol must be kept in place in the cannabis industry in order to ensure the safety of the consumer. Whether it’s for recreational or medicinal use, there are requirements that must be met before the cannabis can be obtained by the consumer. With an increase in the use of cannabis in the legal market, there is a growing demand for Quality Assurance Person (QAP) in Canada and North America.
