Edibles are a HOT topic!

What we know for sure... you never want to be associated with making people sick.

Millions of people get a food borne illness every year. 48 Million (in the USA alone) in fact. With staggering statistics like that and the possibility that your patients may have a compromised immune system, it's important to ensure the products that are created are as safe as possible.

The nationally recognized ServSafe® Food Safety Training program is offered to retailers and manufacturers of cannabis infused products.

The course is in full compliance with Enforcement Division and Health Department requirements. In many states, owners and employees are required to demonstrate an understanding of basic food handling safety practices or attend a food handler training course prior to manufacturing any Edible Cannabis Product.

The ServSafe® program blends the latest FDA Food Code, food safety research and years of food sanitation training experience. Employees and Managers learn to implement essential food safety practices and work in a culture of food safety.

Employers can trust our food safety program with roots in the food service industry to help protect customer health, produce safe products, improve employee performance, and protect your business.

The program covers all the food safety musts, and we customize the conversation and examples for professionals in the Cannabis Industry.

This is ideal for all manufacturers of edibles, tinctures, topicals etc.  As part of state's rules, this class is mandatory in Colorado, Nevada and California. 

The class we lead fits all the requirements of mandatory training.
