Grupo Flor brings first cannabis testing laboratory office to Monterey County



We're excited to announce that on June 2, 2017, SC Labs will establish a satellite office in our Salinas, CA Grupo Flor Corporate Headquarters located at 115 Cayuga Street.

This strategic partnership with Santa Cruz-based independent cannabis testing laboratory, SC Labs, brings much-needed cannabis industry regulatory compliance to Monterey County.

As you may know, attention to consumer safety directly affects the viability of California's emerging cannabis market.  In turn, consumer safe cannabis production directly informs the choices Grupo Flor has made in building out our local cannabis ecosystem.  That's why bringing SC Labs to Monterey County is an exciting step for our industry and for our community building strategy.

SC Labs is one of the nation's leading cannabis research and lab testing facilities. As part of this strategic partnership with Grupo Flor, SC Labs offers Monterey County cannabis operators convenient and immediate access to critical testing requirements to ensure consumer safety in California's cannabis products.

SC Labs has decades of cannabis science experience and their testing methods comply with relevant FDA, ELAP and EPA guidelines and are conducted in accordance with the strictest and most current scientific protocols currently available. 

Here's to promoting the best practices and quality standards in Monterey County.

All our best,

Grupo Flor Co-Founders

Gavin Kogan, Mike Bitar & Omar Bitar
