Hawaii Needs Marijuana Testing Labs for 8 Dispensaries to Open Doors

The Breakdown: 


  • As of July 15th, it has been legal for medical marijuana dispensaries to open in Hawaii.

  • Hawaii dispensaries are not ready to open their doors yet for one big reason - they need testing labs.

The Details:

  • Hawaii's Department of Health requires marijuana testing facilities to check cannabis products for quality, pesticides, harmful microbes, and more.

  • There has yet to be applicants from any laboratories to become certified by the Hawaii Department of Health, although one lab, Spectra Analytical Lab, is working on an application. 

  • Until products can be tested by an approved lab, the dispensaries are unable to open.

  • There are eight approved dispensaries waiting for an approved lab to fill the gap.
