LAS VEGAS, Oct. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DigiPath Labs, a subsidiary of DigiPath, Inc. (OTCBB: DIGP), recently joined the Association of Commercial Cannabis Laboratories ("ACCL"), a group of independent lab operators that have come together to address the lack of standards and standard practices in the medical and recreational cannabis industry in the United States. "By joining the ACCL, DigiPath Labs further demonstrates its adherence to strict testing guidelines and commitment to quality assurance for marijuana consumers in Nevada," commented Dr. Cindy Orser, DigiPath Labs' Chief Scientific Officer.
Founded in 2011, the ACCL and its member organizations are dedicated to establishing medical marijuana best practices and certifications for quality standards. Since its inception, the ACCL has been at the forefront of the movement to develop mandatory testing protocols for medicinal marijuana products, with the expansion of its membership base to include cannabis-testing laboratories throughout North America. The organization continues to serve as an example to the rest of the industry on how to work together effectively to bring greater legitimacy and credibility to the medical marijuana community.
As a member of ACCL, DigiPath Labs adheres to the association's tenets of integrity, proficiency, reliability, credibility, establishing and maintaining a QC/QA program, and accountability. Unique to the ACCL are the additional requirements for members to conduct themselves professionally in an effort to increase the integrity of the cannabis testing industry and to advance the scientific understanding of cannabis to the general public in a continuing effort to push back the frontiers of ignorance surrounding cannabis.
Furthermore, the ACCL strongly recommends that all members obtain ISO certification. Consistent with the ACCL's recommendation, DigiPath Labs recently initiated the process of seeking ISO 17025 accreditation. Both membership in the ACCL and the path toward ISO accreditation place DigiPath Labs amongst the highest quality cannabis testing labs in the country.
Todd Denkin, CEO of DigiPath Labs, stated, "ISO accreditation means that medical marijuana cultivators, producers and patients can be confident that required test results are compliant with state laws and that good laboratory practices are consistent with other industries."
