USP wants Medical Cannabis Experts

uspLooking deeper into the USP and what they might be doing with Medical Cannabis we run across that they are looking for Experts to sit on a panel.

Posted Aug 30th on their website they are seeking qualified candidates to sit on a panel to “develop quality standards for cannabis used for medical purposes.”

That expert panel will then make recommendations to the Botanical Dietary Supplements and Herbal Medicines Expert Committee.

They expect to have this panel in place by the end of Sept 2016

“Expert panels are formed to provide additional expertise on a particular compendial topic, thereby supplementing Expert Committee expertise. Each Expert Panel has a specific charge (including scope of work, deliverables, and timeline for completion) and will be dissolved at the conclusion of its work. Expert Panels are advisory to one or more Expert Committees; they are not decision-making bodies.”

A person can apply to be on the expert panel at the following link –  USP
