The GACP certification is backed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and was created to form safety, quality, and efficacy standards for plant medicine enterprises (1).

After undergoing these audits and GACP certification procedures, Curio Wellness became the first CGMP-certified cannabis operator in the state of Maryland and “one of the only GACP-certified cannabis manufacturers in the industry,” (1).


“For the advancement of the cannabis industry, we must continue to hold ourselves to the highest standard," Joseph Martin, SVP of Operational Excellence at Curio Wellness commented (1). "Our adult-use consumers and medical patients deserve the best and safest flower products available and we are committed to meeting their needs. We are proud to have completed the rigorous GACP certification process and will continue to regularly seek ways to precisely assess and improve our practices.”

Additional developments taking place, is Curio Wellness’s new partnership with VMO-Ops, Inc. located in Missouri.
