Cannlabs Opens Licensed Laboratory in Connecticut; Company has 50% of Market Currently Contracted
Denver, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2014 / CannLabs, Inc. (CANL), the leading provider of proprietary cloud based analytics, and scientific testing methodologies relating to cannabis, today announced the opening of CannLabs – Connecticut, Inc. (“CannLabs – CT”), an independent testing facility licensed in Connecticut to analyze medical cannabis. The facility located in Hartford, CT began conducting mandated testing to meet Connecticut’s rigorous product safety requirements last week and has secured multi-year testing contracts with 2 of the 4 growers currently licensed. Under an agreement with Carbon Bonds Holdings, a wholly owned subsidiary of CannLabs, Inc., the company provides administrative services and licenses proprietary software to CannLabs – CT.
The new facility is licensed by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection to analyze cannabis products from the four producers licensed by the state. Connecticut has some of the strictest quality control standards in the nation and adheres to both the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia(R) (AHP) and United States Pharmacopeia guidelines for permissible limits of contaminants. The guidelines include very low tolerance limits for specified bacteria, fungi, heavy metals and pesticides.
“With the opening of CannLabs – CT, the first CannLabs licensed Cannabis testing laboratory outside of Colorado, CannLabs enters a new growth phase, expanding into new markets. Connecticut is the perfect market for us to enter, it has a limited number of growers and one of the most stringent testing regimes in the country.” said Mark Mirken, Chief Executive Officer of CannLabs. “Having signed contracts with 50% of the market prior to entry, creates an immediate revenue stream, making Connecticut even more attractive.” said Mirken “When fully operational, the lab will be managed and staffed by employees from the local market, bringing training and jobs to Connecticut as well as providing an entry point into new and existing markets in the Northeast.” Mirken added.
CannLabs and its licensed laboratories are strong advocates for developing a Cannabis market that offers both quality assurance and safety for the consumer. Their commitment to advancing testing processes and methods is a commitment to the clients and the industry by ensuring any products tested, using CannLabs’ capabilities and technology, meet the requirements of mandated regulations as administered by the appropriate governmental bodies.
