Today on Mission Supercritical our host  Andy Joseph speaks with Rachel Loeber, the Medicinal and Analytical Chemist of LeafLine Labs. Rachel is an analytical chemist by training with experience in chromatography and mass spectrometry.


Dr. Loeber received her PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and is currently the Vice President of Laboratory Operations at LeafLine Labs – one of two medical cannabis manufactures licensed by the state of Minnesota. The medical cannabis program in Minnesota is unique in that all products produced must be derived from extracted oils and formulated into pharmaceutical dosage forms approved by the Minnesota Department of Health.

At LeafLine Labs, Dr. Loeber oversees both production and R&D activities involving cannabis extraction, formulation, analytical testing, and regulatory compliance. As a vertically-integrated medical cannabis provider, the lab team at LeafLine Labs plays a crucial role in connecting cultivation with caregiving, providing industry-leading medical cannabis medications to thousands of Minnesotans.
