A cultivation facility is an entity that is authorized to cultivate, process, and package cannabis and sell it to retail cannabis stores, cannabis product manufacturing facilities, and other cannabis cultivation facilities, but not directly to consumers. 

Once the cannabis is cultivated/processed, it is tested, and finally packaged before being sent out to dispensaries, such as South Dakota’s first medical marijuana dispensary, From The Hills, which opened its doors to patients on April 30th, 2022 in Rapid City, South Dakota. 

Cannabis Testing

There are two main reasons medical marijuana is tested in a licensed testing facility before being sold to patients. 

The first reason is to verify that the products are safe for human consumption. The next is to give patients an idea of the potency of the product they are using. 

A cannabis testing facility does just that! It is an entity licensed to analyze and certify the safety and potency of medical marijuana. The testing facility in South Dakota is Cannabis Chem Lab which is located in ​​Flandreau, South Dakota.

Cannabis Chem Lab was founded on November 13, 2020. Their mission is to ensure the safety and accuracy of recreational and medical cannabis products, with the goal to certify every cannabis product sold in South Dakota. 

Each certification includes a certificate of analysis aka ‘COA’,  so the consumers know exactly what they are getting. This analysis is backed up by pending certifications from federal departments such as the Drug Enforcement Agency and the United States Department of Agriculture; as well as private certifications such as A2LA ISO:17025.

IM 26 mandates that patients in South Dakota who want to use medicinal marijuana must first get a registration card from the state. However, in order to get this card, you must first obtain certification from a doctor registered to recommend medical marijuana with the SD medical cannabis program . Fortunate enough, My Marijuana Cards is and its team of physicians are ready and willing to certify you for South Dakota Medical Cannabis Card. We are proud to be your resource for all things cannabis.

Patients can schedule an in-person appointment with one of our compassionate mmj physicians today. The MMJ program in South Dakota operates similarly to most others. As a result, you will need to be evaluated, approved, and certified by a doctor in order to obtain medical marijuana legally. Otherwise, make an appointment for a consultation. Prepare to explain why you need medical marijuana. Depending on the doctor, they may only give their approval if you have previously examined all other choices available. It may also be necessary to establish a true patient-doctor relationship. You will only be authorized if you fulfill at least one of the standards specified in the following section. 

If you have been granted permission, the doctor will certify. You’ll need it in order to submit your application. Remember that you must be at least 18 years old to apply or if younger than 18 be under the supervision of a caregiver that is 21 or over.
