AIPIA member Applied DNA Sciences has  recently announced that it is launching an additional system to tag the industry’s larger volume cannabis or hemp grows as part of TheraCann International’s ETCH biotrace™ solution.

Following the successful showing of its first Cannabis Tagging System (CTS) in July in San Jose at the NCIA Show, the company is expanding its cannabis tagging offerings to accommodate different sizes and type of growers in the industry. The Company’s laboratory services and in-field testing systems complete the solution to support claims of traceability, quality and intellectual properties surrounding a cannabis brand.

The tremendous interest that came from the event accelerated our expansion of tagging solutions to meet the varied cannabis market conditions, including size of grower, indoor, outdoor or hybrid grow, or even the size of plant(s) that justifies the expansion of our tagging equipment solutions,” said Gordon Hope, director of Cannabis Business Development at Applied DNA Sciences.

The Company’s new design will scale in increments for larger grow operations, enabling these growers an efficient way to tag their cannabis or hemp. The scalable concept utilizes a grow facility’s dry or staging room(s) which can easily be fitted with moveable and expandable POD tagging systems depending upon the size of the room. The cannabis or hemp present in the room for staging or drying can quickly be tagged without slowing down operations during harvest.

Jason Warnock, CEO of TheraCann International said, “The expanded portfolio supports and enhances the ETCH biotrace brand and strategy to offer a comprehensive end-to-end solution to tag, test and track from source to retail shelf.”

ETCH biotrace combines molecular tagging with TheraCann’s portfolio of licensing, project management, security, cultivation and analysis services.
