Jeffrey Raber is Co-Founder and President of The Werc Shop, a lab-testing facility based in Los Angeles. He is also Chief Financial Officer of the Association of Commercial Cannabis Laboratories (ACCL).
Raber grew up in Pennsylvania and attended Lebanon Valley College before receiving his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Southern California. He was then hired to serve as Director of Product Development at Avrion Molecular, Inc, where he was responsible for researching, developing, and commercializing their proprietary reaction methodology.
Soon thereafter, Raber was asked to join KinetiChem, Inc. – a start-up company focusing on development and commercialization of a novel chemical reactor technology. He was originally brought on as Chief Scientist and now serves as company President. Being a patient himself and having contact with those in the cannabis industry, Raber recognized a need for more transparency in the cannabis industry better quality control. In turn, The Werc Shop was born.
