March 2021 Events

Please Notice the Change of Date

TUESDAY, March 16 @ 6:30-7:30 PM Canna Growers & Farmer’s COA Education, Virtual @ Illinois NORMLs Facebook Page

In collaboration with Midwest Hemp Coalition & Origo Labs expect to walk away equipped with all the knowledge you need to know to understand at length what a Certificate Of Analysis (COA) details.

Full panel tests although not required by law yet, they soon will be. They include the ability to analyze harmful mold/yeast, microbes, heavy metals, pesticides, and for a benefit, terpenes. 


 This event will be offered for free this one time only! 

Certificates Of Analysis define if your crop is “hot” or not. What does that mean? Arbitrary laws and regulations set by Congress require hemp crops not to exceed thresholds of .03% THC in order to be legal to sell. If it surpasses .03%, it’s “hot” and there’s no turning back. In addition, mold and yeast are harmful components when smoked or ingested and can be harmful to patients. All these things and more are defined in a full panel COA.

By educating farmers along each stage of the plants process of development, we can tend to the plants needs in order to establish the results we intend to get out of our harvests.

New to the practice of commercial hemp farming? There is no better time than now to begin your understanding of the science behind the plant. Here we’ll answer:

• What is a Certificate Of Analysis (COA)? 

• How do you read a COA? For those inexperienced to lab reports.

• What do the COA % indicate and why should you care?

• What business opportunities are offered to hemp farmers?
