Marijuana Testing Lab CannaSafe Expands Footprint Despite Pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t hindered one cannabis testing lab’s plans for expansion. California-based CannaSafe is expanding to locations in Oregon, Florida, and Illinois in an effort to bring its testing services and expertise to new markets despite the ongoing crisis.
“We are a needed service. Our main responsibility is to make sure that consumers have access to safe cannabis and hemp products. Regardless of the global circumstances, there is still going to be demand for these products and therefore demand for our services to make sure they are safe and viable,” said Aaron Riley, CannaSafe CEO.
The company also announced that Riley, formerly the president of CannaSafe, assumed the role of CEO after a buyout of the company’s previous partners. The company declined to disclose the names of the former partners. Antonio Frazier, formerly the vice president of operations, will take on Riley’s vacated president role.
CannaSafe currently operates a 15,000-square-foot lab in Los Angeles, California, where it tests products for everything from potency and terpene contents to microbes, heavy metals, and vitamin E acetate. [Read more at Chedder]
