Washington, DC -- We are pleased to announce that CannaSafe Analytics of Van Nuys, CA has been certified for laboratory analysis of cannabis products under our PFC laboratory certification program. They also become the first facility in the country to receive the PFC Health and Sanitation Certification. The Health and Sanitation certification was recently added to address current issues of health and safety during the ongoing pandemic. PFC is the only nonprofit third-party certification program for the cannabis industry based on quality standards issued by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP).
“This achievement demonstrates CannaSafe’s continued commitment to cannabis product safety for patients and consumers, along with a commitment to operate safely and guard their employees health and wellbeing'' said Heather Despres, PFC Program Director. “CannaSafe continues to adhere to not only the standards set by PFC but also the requirements of the Bureau of Cannabis Control in California.”
“The work ASA has done over the decades is crucial to safe access for all patients, and PFC’s cannabis specific scope gives patients confidence that the lab isn’t producing fraudulent results. CannaSafe hopes that more of the industry will pursue certification beyond the basic requirements, which simply aren’t robust enough at this time.” said Antonio Frazier, President of CannaSafe.
CannaSafe joins a growing list of PFC certified businesses since the program was officially launched in 2014.
