Medical marijuana products are expected to be available in Louisiana next week following approval Thursday by state regulators.

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry completed testing on the first batch of medical marijuana produced by GB Sciences Louisiana, a subcontractor of LSU’s agricultural research center.

“We are pleased to announce that LSU-GBSL’s final medical marijuana product has passed all testing and is cleared for immediate release to the medical marijuana pharmacies,” said Louisiana Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain.

On Monday, LDAF selected a random sample of the final product, a marijuana extract to be delivered under the tongue with a dropper, that was tested for homogeneity, potency and contaminants. Smokeable marijuana is not legal in Louisiana.
