Our Background

Back in 2012, while researching medical cannabis laws and regulations, we were troubled that few states required third-party testing for cannabis or cannabis-derived products. This was unacceptable, so the company consulted with some of the original pioneer cannabis testing laboratories only to find a much larger problem – the testing being performed in other states was incomprehensible and the data being produced was completely unreliable. It quickly became clear that the industry had  major problems; it lacked integrity, ethics, and most importantly, proper laboratory protocol. Modern Canna set out on a mission to ensure that Florida’s medical marijuana patients would receive the most advanced and accurate testing services available in the country. This is why Modern Canna is currently regarded by many as one of the most reputable Medical Marijuana Testing Laboratory’s in the United States

Florida’s medical cannabis patients deserve medication that is cultivated in the safest manner possible and then rigorously tested using the latest technology prior to consumption. Modern Canna is setting the standard for medical cannabis quality assurance in Florida. Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers looking for a laboratory to provide cannabis testing or consulting services will find no better option.
