Joshua Crossney is the President & Founder of jCanna, Inc., (www.jCanna.com) a Maryland based 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to the advancement of cannabis science, analytical testing, and personalized (precision) medicine. Joshua has a background in analytical science recruiting and is doing his best to bridge the gap between analytical sciences and the medical cannabis industry to help improve the quality of medicinal cannabis products being used by patients. The lack of unified methods and standards for contamination and potency in cannabis testing and the fact that some states don’t even require QC/QA testing for their medical cannabis programs was very troubling to Josh. This led him to found jCanna. Josh is especially passionate about helping pediatric cannabis patients suffering from debilitating illnesses.
Josh is a writer for multiple publications, including The Analytical Scientist, Medical Jane, and 1000 Watts Magazine. He has also done on-camera hosting and moderating for multiple cannabis and scientific media outlets, including The Medical Cannabis Report and LabX Media Group (The Scientist & Lab Manager). Josh is also the Founder of the annual Cannabis Science Conference (www.CannabisScienceConference.com). The inaugural Cannabis Science Conference was held in Portland, OR in October 2016 and hosted over 750 attendees from all over the world. Additionally, Josh is the organizer of a full-day Analytical Cannabis Symposium at PITTCON 2017 in Chicago (www.PITTCON.org). Josh has a moto of collaboration, not competition in this emerging medical industry where so much still needs to be accomplished.
