Companies Combined Expertise Will Dramatically Improve Validated Testing
ANAHEIM, CA–(Marketwired – Jan 15, 2015) – Greengro Technologies (OTC: GRNH) announced today that it has entered an agreement with Veridian Laboratories to develop and market advanced testing services and products for the agriculture and cannabis industries.
According to CEO James Haas, “One of the fastest growing areas of agriculture, specifically with cannabis is the demand for consistent validated testing methods. Our goal in teaming with Veridian Labs is to apply supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) technology with current molecular bio-technology techniques to create a more robust and consistent testing system.”
Veridian Laboratories Inc., based in San Diego, has formed Veridian Analytics LLC to pursue the venture with Greengro. Steve Dizaiy, chief science officer, stated, ” We are pleased to partner with Greengro in the quest to elevate agro botanical technology using our combined skills to bring state of the art equipment and strict control processes to the young emerging cannabis industry.”
Cannabis is a diverse plant with many applications; it contains over 400 unique compounds including cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavinoids, alkaloids and more. Each of these chemical compounds play an important role in the life of the cannabis plant and have unique and varied effects on both potency and purity testing. Availability of information about medical cannabis guarantees the patient can better choose the proper medicine specific to his or her ailments. By identifying the potency and cannabinoid profile with standardized labeling, the doctors and patients are able to measure specific doses and avoid chances for improper dosage.
Dizaiy added, “Today’s testing techniques simply do not provide consistent and validated results from lab to lab. Our services will be conducted in certified and validated facilities utilizing ‘Current Good manufacturing practice’ or ‘cGMP.'”
The companies intend to provide additional details and timelines in the near future.
