PHOENIX, Nov. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Harvest Health & Recreation Inc. (CSE: HARV, OTCQX: HRVSF) (“Harvest”), a vertically integrated cannabis company with one of the largest and deepest footprints in the U.S., today announced CannApprove™, a set of testing and safety protocols for THC vape products available at Harvest retail locations. The CannApprove™ program represents a set of stringent seed-to-sale quality testing protocols developed and implemented during the past 10 years that Harvest products must pass before they are allowed on store shelves. The protocols are a demonstration of Harvest’s continued leadership role on quality and safety and will enhance the experience of patients and customers across the country.

All Alchemy™, Chroma™, Delta 8, Co2lors™ and CBx Sciences™ Amplify and Meditate vape products are manufactured in compliance with the CannApprove™ protocols, which apply to ingredients, components, hardware, manufacturing processes and packaging.

“Quality and safety are at the center of what we do and have done for nearly a decade,” said Harvest CEO Steve White. “CannApprove™ represents the rigorous steps and standards we employ to provide quality products for consumers and our patients. We go above and beyond the testing requirements in many jurisdictions where we operate and at a time when vaping products are under immense scrutiny, Harvest’s efforts demonstrate our leadership role over quality control.”

“Harvest’s consumer safety team includes medical professionals, scientists, researchers and former regulators that have been implemented these protocols for many years and are excited to give consumers a clear picture of the steps we’ve always taken for their benefit,” said Harvest Chief Scientist Noel Palmer, PhD. “We have played a role in writing some of the most stringent cannabis regulations in the nation and we bring that diligence to the work we do to protect our patients.”
