The cannabis certification standard developed by PJRFSI are good manufacturing practice (GMP) and good agricultural practice (GAP) schemes that aim to assist those working in the cannabis industry-namely, cannabis growers, manufacturers, and retailers. The certification standards will help cannabis companies meet state-by-state requirements.

The PJRFSI standard is intended to supply outlines for cannabis cultivation, retail practices nationwide, and product manufacture. In the press release (1), PJRFSI noted what they hoped to achieve with their history-making certification: “With the release and accreditation of their standard, PJRFSI hopes to simplify and unite the United States cannabis industry for the benefit of everyone from grower to producer to end user.”

  “The team at Perry Johnson Registrars Food Safety Inc. is incredibly excited to be the first company in the United States to achieve formal accreditation for our Cannabis and Hemp Certification Program,” said PJRFSI President Terry Boboige and Accreditation Manager Lauren Maloney in the press release (1). “We believe this nationally-recognized program will help the budding cannabis and hemp industries to strengthen, legitimize, and separate themselves from companies that do not have formal certification. Certification to this standard will forever help enhance companies’ image, credibility, and reliability. Accredited certification exemplifies to the public that certified organizations who supply cannabis and hemp products and services have internal safety systems that can inspire confidence.”

Through this cannabis certification, PJRFSI aids the cannabis industry with more room for growth and opportunities. For more about their announcement and cannabis certification standard, please visit www.pjrfsi.com.
