PHARMLABS™ is comprised of the highest level of chemical and biological scientists in the industry.



CEO/Founder


The Founder, Greg Magdoff, is a cannabis industry expert who has had his hands in the dirt from the very beginning, allowing him to truly understand the cannabis industry from seed to sale. Greg has an extensive background in business marketing and a vast experience with chemical science; specifically chromatography. Greg, who graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing; worked for over a decade in one of the largest sales and marketing brokers in the United States representing major clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson and Johnson, Del Monte Foods, Delta/Moen, Quaker and Gatorade.

Greg opened the first PharmLabs LLC in 2011 and has continued to launch additional ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited cannabis chemical and biological analytical testing laboratories in Hawaii and California over the past few years.

Greg was instrumental in the software development and testing of PharmWare, a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), used throughout cannabis analytic laboratories across the country. 

Greg helped create the first laboratory robotics/automation system designed specifically for cannabis laboratory sample preparation known as the CannaDeck. The CannaDeck System is an automation platform including a robotic sample processing system designed to automate sample prep for cannabis analysis of potency, pesticides, heavy metals, terpenes and residual solvents.In addition, the system performs microbiology assays, working with petri dishes as well as 3M Petri Film Plates via a patent-pending SBS-compliant Processor Module. The CannaDeck system also automates ELISA assays, providing a comprehensive automation solution for cannabis testing labs.

Greg also has been very active in helping local municipalities,political groups and government bodies develop clear and concise policies and regulations for the cannabis and hemp industry. Greg has devoted a lot of his time to speaking at city council meetings, city planning hearings, and community events to ensure a safe and successful cannabis and hemp industry.
