River Collective was founded to serve the medical cannabis community in California. Members of our team come from within the cannabis industry – as master growers, artisans, brokers, vendors, activists, and patients – as well as professionals from the wine and spirits industry who lend their expertise in brand building and operational logistics. We believe in paying fair prices to farmers and we are able to do so by making distribution affordable through economies of scale.
We founded River Collective knowing that we could build a great business serving producers, retailers, and patients, but only if the laws were there to protect us. New laws coming into effect will allow us to move forward collectively as an industry as the Federal Government begins to recognize California as having “robust regulatory controls on paper and in practice, with strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems.” We view our role in the regulated system as a partner in compliance and a champion for progress.

At SC Labs, we encourage consumer confidence through state of the art cannabis testing and analysis. For us, transparency is paramount. We strongly believe that patients, caregivers, and providers are entitled to accurate labelling of their medicine. Our testing methods are the product of rigorous peer review and are consistent with FDA, ELAP, and EPA guidelines.
SC Labs is committed to the development of industry-wide safety and quality control standards. As the medical marijuana industry continues to transform, precise labelling and healthy cultivation practices are key. Third party certification not only boosts consumer confidence, but also encourages widespread improvements in safety management and contaminant control.
Quality control is a common good. As members of the cannabis community, we have a shared interest in guaranteeing the safety and quality of our products. Many cannabis providers have already made significant strides to ensure transparency; however, more can be done. At SC Labs, we aim to continue our support for the cannabis community by providing a lab-based metric for quality assurance.
