The cannabis extraction industry is currently worth more than 10 billion dollars, and it is expected to reach 23.7 billion by 2027. The more states legalize cannabis, the higher the value of the industry. Even with the high initial costs, cannabis extraction could be a highly profitable long-term business. Nonetheless, failing to put in place appropriate structures can be detrimental.
Finding an appropriate location and implementing proper measures to ensure compliance and management of the staff, waste, equipment, inventory, and supply chain are vital. Failure at these critical points would result in substantial financial losses and even license cancellation. In this complimentary webinar, we will discuss seven key factors you must consider when setting up a cannabis extraction facility.
- A review of the benefits of in-house testing for cannabis extractors.
- Seven key factors to consider when setting up a cannabis extraction facility.
- How an informatics tool can help you keep up with regulations and requirements of setting up a cannabis extraction lab.
Who Should Watch

Martha is a chemist with expertise in diverse areas of analytical chemistry. She had worked as an analyst at a licensed 3rd party analytical laboratory where she focused on developing and validating analytical methods for bioequivalence studies. Later, she served as a quality control expert in the analytical domain and as a monitor in clinical trials. Her interest in the clinical industry led her to be a part of two of the biggest hospitals in Mexico where she gained expertise in hematology, microbiology, and blood banking. Later, she became a member of the team of forensic chemical experts and started working from day one as a specialist in narcotics and drugs. This enabled her to gain rich experience in GC-MS, FTIR, HPLC-MS/MS, ICP-MS, and other analytical techniques for the separation, detection, and quantification of different molecules such as cannabinoids. She had participated in multiple oral trials defending her legal opinions and worked as an expert consultant. She had worked on the synthesis of small molecules for testing them on multi-drug resistant bacteria and mycobacteria, further developing her analytical skills in column chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, microbiology, and compound elucidation by NMR and HRMS. She carried out a research stay at the University of Barcelona with the organic synthesis team. She had also worked on natural products in France and presented her work at conferences in the USA and France. She received awards and accolades for her exceptional work. She has participated in several conferences as a moderator as well.
Martha holds a bachelor’s degree in Clinical Chemistry from the Faculty of Medicine UANL and a master’s degree in Pharmacy from the Faculty of Chemical Sciences UANL, Mexico.
