Signal Bay, a leading provider of cannabis consulting, operations and laboratory services, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to expand its cannabis testing services into the Emerald Triangle in Northern California. Under the terms of the LOI, Signal Bay will operate a cannabis testing laboratory and provide analytical testing services to the largest cannabis-producing region in the US.

"With the recent passing of California Medical Marijuana Regulation inclusive of AB 243, AB 266 and SB 643, legislatures have clearly spoken about the need for independent testing to ensure product safety for California medical marijuana patients,” said William Waldrop, CEO of Signal Bay. “Building on our recent acquisition of CR Labs in Oregon, we are evaluating additional growth opportunities to strategically position Signal Bay to become a leader of cannabis testing in the Western United States."

The possession of cannabis has been legal for California medical marijuana patients since the passage of Proposition 215 in 1996. California has the largest legal cannabis market in the US, with a value of $1.3 billion annually. Cannabis analytical testing includes tests for potency, homogeneity, microbial contamination, residual solvents and pesticides, and utilizes gas and liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. The California cannabis testing market could exceed $80 million with the passing of the recreational ballot initiative in 2016.
