Cannabis and ASTM:
Growth Is a Grassroots Effort

The cannabis industry is growing – so is the need for quality assurance and safety standards. In 2017, a diverse group of globally recognized industry leaders came together to form ASTM Committee D37 on Cannabis and began developing international standards for cannabis under the ASTM umbrella. This inclusive group empowers a cross section of voices in the industry to shape its future through the collaborative development of trusted standards. Emerging industries such as cannabis turn to ASTM International and our 120+ years of experience as a leading international standards developer.

Everything grows better in community. ASTM International is an organization of inclusion – offering global access to fully transparent standards development, resulting in the highest technical excellence in standardization. Join our expanding network of experts and learn why so many emerging industries turn to ASTM to help build the future they want to see.
