THE CANNABIS HEALTH & SAFETY ORGANIZATION

OUR MISSION: PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH, CONSUMER SAFETY, & SAFEGUARD THE ENVIRONMENT BY PROMOTING INTEGRITY IN THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY

If navigating the cannabis industry were easy, you wouldn’t be here.

Established in 2014 as the world’s first cannabis standards development organization, the Foundation Of Cannabis Unified Standards (FOCUS) initiated the global conversation around quality, health, and safety in the cannabis industry and continues to lead those discussions today. 

As a 501c3 non-profit organization FOCUS, was created to address the many shortcomings in quality, consistency and safety that became evident with the explosive growth of the global cannabis industry. Based on a foundation of well-established corporate values, and a proven business model, FOCUS brings a unique and holistic perspective to everything we do.  

FOCUS has become much more than a standards development organization.  Today FOCUS is an independent, third-party health and safety organization dedicated to building a safe, legal, and sustainable global cannabis industry.

Serving consumers, businesses, cannabis investors, legislators, regulators, and public health agencies, FOCUS builds long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with clients and partners to further the mission of protecting public health, consumer safety, and safeguarding the environment.

Why Us?

American National Standards Institute (ANSI)

A standard is an agreed upon way of doing things.  It is a pre-determined criteria for a given situation. Standards represent an agreed upon norm to guide our daily lives and help us make informed decisions.  They are not good or bad, but provide a basis to measure and assess activities and things.

Voluntary Consensus Standards

Established in an open environment through collaboration by professionals from both the public and private sectors. This is achieved by cooperation of all parties who have an interest in participating in the development and/or use of the standards.

Balanced Stakeholder Input

Complicated terminology and varied definitions often confuse the difference between laws, regulations, and standards.   Knowing what each is and how they interact is crucial to understanding the critical role standards play in the cannabis industry today.

What People Are Saying.

FOCUS offers the Cannabis community the best set of standards for all cannabis operations. These standards provide a uniform, systematic, and predictable methodology to improve products and services in a cost effective and value-enhanced process. Regulators at the Federal and State level appreciate and will adopt these standards. This is the standards system everyone should rely upon.

Stephen Goldner
President, JD RAC Regulatory Affairs Associates

The cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing markets in the U.S.A. With that growth comes responsibility. Responsibility to protect: public health, consumer safety and the environment, and FOCUS fills that void. I am confident these Standards will benefit business owners, patients, consumers and regulatory agencies.
