Even as Maryland’s medical marijuana industry continues to move through bureaucracy, a firm looking to provide testing and analytics is getting set up.

Steep Hill Maryland said it received pre-approval from the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission to test medical cannabis. It’s the first testing company to get the go-ahead. The company, which has a license to operate from Berkeley, Calif.-based Steep Hill, is looking to set up a lab in Columbia.

As we reported when Steep Hill first announced a Maryland presence, the company tests medical cannabis for potency and safety. It’s led by Andrew Rosenstein, who is gastroenterology director at the University of Maryland Saint Joseph Medical Center and a professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.

The state picked dispensaries and growers. Testing is another part of the equation to make sure patients are getting good product.

There’s also a bill in the General Assembly this session to legalize recreational marijuana, which Steep Hill’s California operation also tests.
