The independent Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and product safety certification program received input from state Attorneys General and law enforcement upon its creation. TreeHouse Biosciences is first in the program’s cannabinoid manufacturers and THC remediation processors category to receive ASTM CANNQ/HEMPQ certification.
Operators who complete the certification program are bound to the highest standards of production relating to consumer health and safety.
"We are elated to receive this first-of-its-kind certification under ASTM's CANNQ/HEMPQ Certification Program,” said Jake Black, PhD, chief science officer, TreeHouse Biosciences. “ASTM is the gold-standard when it comes to global safety and quality certifications across all manufacturing industries. As the first cannabinoid and THC remediation processor to receive this certification, it highlights TreeHouse Biosciences' core values of safety, quality, integrity, and science.”
Since its inception in 2016, TreeHouse Biosciences has offered hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) and broad-spectrum ingredients. Its patented method of THC removal via chromatography has been influential across the industry, and TreeHouse Biosciences continues to progress scientific innovation in the hemp and cannabis industries. TreeHouse Biosciences provides companies and research institutions the scientific support needed to develop the products of tomorrow.
The certification program is open to cultivators, extractors, and producers, allowing industry stakeholders to:
- Efficiently test cannabis flower samples using ASTM standards.
- Leverage ASTM's Quality System GxP Certification Platform to track and manage data.
- Scientifically verify that participants' products and facilities adhere to the strictest industry safety standards.
