Seattle HEMPFEST® Partners with HD Analytics for increased Consumer Advocacy
SEATTLE -- With many reports of improper testing and labeling in the Washington state cannabis industry, (1) recent intervention from the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (2) and whistleblowers calling for product recalls (3), Seattle HEMPFEST is partnering with HD Analytics to increase consumer advocacy and open/fair/ethical standards to cannabis product testing and labeling.
Seattle HEMPFEST is working directly with industry watchdogs like Dr. Jim MacRae to ensure fair and open testing which, combined with a customer advocacy campaign, should help restore trustable labeling to the industry, and truly safe products to recreational and medical consumers in Washington state.
“In keeping with HEMPFEST’s community values model, we are expanding our mission to include quality assurance in an effort to protect the best interests of the patient and recreational cannabis community,” says Cyril Bouanna, Seattle HEMPFEST board member nd project manager. “Safe, quality cannabis and cannabis products are an essential component of the legal recreational and medical markets.”
