In this behind-the-scenes conversation we sit down with Director of Product for Backbone, Erika Tingey. Backbone is a supply chain management software system that is fully customized to any process in the Cannabis lifecycle that helps producers make better decisions with a better view of their own data. Erika breaks down some of the things that make Backbone powerful and unique for Cannabis cultivators, extractors and product manufacturers, positioning it to be a fantastic tool for operators in the Cannabis industry that are seeking GMP compliance or ISO accreditation. We also discuss the importance of thinking critically about data collection and why it is important to understand what you need to measure and why so that operations can truly benefit from data collection rather than data collection becoming a burden.

About this Episode of Narcotica:
“Nearly half the U.S. population now have access to adult-use cannabis. Marijuana is a medicine, if it’s cultivated or extracted right, and millions of people find relief or pleasure from this fantastic plant. But as legalization accelerates, regulations have struggled to keep up. Most experts and maybe many consumers would agree that cannabis is not well regulated or could use some improvements.
Meanwhile, new cannabinoids like delta-8-THC, THC-O and more are hitting the streets, licit and illicit. This is a rapidly changing environment, which is far beyond THC and CBD, the two most well-known drugs in marijuana. It leaves a lot of questions: Are these ‘new’ cannabinoids safe? What do they do in the body? What about vaping them?
