The New Cannabis and Hemp Symbol Standardization Planning

The New Cannabis and Hemp Symbol Standardization Planning with CMC, Darwin Millard, David Vaillancourt. NCIA’s Cannabis Manufacturing Committee members Darwin of TSOC and David Vaillancourt of the GMP Collective, from NCIA’s Cannabis Manufacturing Committee and Facilities Design Committee. The CMC focuses on reviewing existing business practices and state regulations of concentrates, topicals, vaporizers, and edibles, ensuring the manufacturing sector is helping shape its destiny. The big exciting news here is that the global cannabis/hemp industry now has a universal symbol designated by ASTM International. Hooray. It looks like a yellow triangle with the cannabis leaf in the center.

The New

Pretty straightforward. But first, we back up by reminding our listeners what ASTM International is and does. In the last few years, we’ve had a hodgepodge of symbols imposed across various states here in the US and Canada for packaging and even on the edibles themselves … which have been all across the board and problematic in some cases. We ask our guests what they have seen so far before this ASTM symbol came out. Back to the logic of the design of the symbol itself. We dive into the rhyme and reason for the triangular shape, the yellow color, the very obvious leaf plant in the center, and so on.
