GreenTree Analytics Announces Launch of Civil Cannabis Quality Program

Posted: Updated:

Kingston, WA / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2014 / GreenTree Analytics, LLC, has announced the creation of its Civil Cannabis Quality Program (CCQP), which will provide free quality testing for the Washington State recreational cannabis industry for a period of 12 months beginning when state accreditation is granted to the laboratory. This highly reliable mass spectrometry testing will ensure that cannabis producers, processors, vendors, and consumers can trust that their products are high quality and compliant with state regulations.

“We created the CCQP both to eliminate the monetization of consumer safety and product integrity and to steward this new industry into maturity,” said Co-founder and Executive Director Eric McKinney. “We’re giving it away for the first year to do our part to make sure the Washington’s new cannabis industry launches without a hitch.”

At the end of this 12-month period, GreenTree Analytics will publish a detailed cost analysis and suggested fee structure for industry-specific testing. This will include all data collected up to that point, scrubbed free from any identifying information to ensure confidentiality. One hundred percent (100%) of the proceeds from testing after the initial 12-month period will be directed toward cannabis and botanical medicine re- search performed by the Botanical Medicine Academy.

GreenTree Analytics has future plans to launch a parallel CCQP in Colorado, and will thereafter expand the the program to other states working towards the creation of a safe and reliable recreational cannabis industry.
