“We never waiver from our mission of assuring access to safe cannabis.”
Steadfast Labs started out as a research and development lab in 2013 and went to market in Hazel Park, Mich., in 2015. Many called the pre-regulation days of caregivers, provisioning centers and medical cannabis users, the “Wild West of Michigan Cannabis.” We realized the industry had an unfulfilled need to incorporate scientific testing to ensure consumer safety. Steadfast stepped in to fill the void and developed sophisticated and trustworthy testing technologies and methodologies to provide the end user with the best experiences and safest products. Today, the regulated industry in many respects is still a “Wild West,” but one in which Steadfast is here to assure your cannabis is safe.
The leadership team at Steadfast Labs is committed to sharing our expertise to help drive cannabis education to ensure positive outcomes for our industry partners and positive experiences for consumers.
