Leading cannabis testing company and Canadian partner to educate conference attendees on consumer safety, service offerings
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 18, 2018 /CNW/ -- EVIO Inc. (OTCQB: EVIO) ("EVIO" or "the Company"), a leading provider of cannabis testing and scientific research for the regulated cannabis industry, today announced that EVIO Canada will be exhibiting alongside Keystone Labs Inc. at the International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC) in Vancouver from June 24 – 25.
"Canada has the unique opportunity to be a world leader in the emerging global marijuana industry and as the industry scales, it becomes increasingly more important that we adopt standardized testing processes to ensure consumer safety and product consistency," said Jodi McDonald, President of Keystone Labs. "We look forward to debuting our new partnership at ICBC and encourage conference goers to stop by the booth to learn more about our cannabis testing services."
EVIO Canada, which serves as the parent company for the Company's Canadian operations, acquired 50% of Keystone Labs in April 2018. Keystone Labs, located in Edmonton, Alberta, has been providing pharmaceutical testing for 12 years and medical marijuana testing for 2 years. Keystone Labs is one of 37 laboratories licensed by Health Canada and one of only three laboratories that hold both a Dealer's License and a GMP Drug Establishment License for cannabis testing.
"The rollout of Canada's recreational program will lead to a new community of cannabis adopters and an increase in demand for high quality, clean products. Through this merger, we are better equipped to meet the demand for testing," said William Waldrop, CEO of EVIO Labs.
EVIO and Keystone Labs will be exhibiting at BOOTH #5 during the conference.
