The Cannabis Authenticity and Purity Standard (CAPS) announced Kim Stuck, founder of Allay Consulting, LLC, as its first certified cannabis and hemp consultant in the US.
The Cannabis Authenticity and Purity Standard (CAPS) is a voluntary certification program that utilizes third-party verification to validate that cannabis and hemp sites are producing safe, quality products that are quantifiably identified as authentic and consistent. It is wholly owned and operated by Purity-IQ, an organization in Canada. CAPS recently announced Kim Stuck, founder of Allay Consulting, LLC, as its first certified cannabis and hemp consultant in the US.
“We wish to congratulate Kim Stuck as the first CAPS Certified Consultant to meet the rigorous CAPS qualifications, complete the training requirements, and successfully pass the final examination. Stuck will be a huge asset when supporting licensed producers seeking to meet the CAPS audit and certification requirements,” said Paul Valder, Chief Technical Officer, at Purity-IQ.
As Founder of Allay Consulting, Stuck works closely with businesses in the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), hemp cannabinoids, or psychedelics industries, to ensure regulatory compliance across all operations. She also supports cultivators, manufacturers, retailers, investors, and other stakeholders across the US by helping them to develop customized strategies and avoid compliance pitfalls.
"The Allay Consulting team is excited to add the CAPS certification program to our list of standards, as we assist our clients to achieve successful training, implementation, third-party audits and certification status. We are dedicated to helping companies raise the bar on producing the most consistent quality and safest products possible for their customers, and the CAPS standard does just that," said Stuck.
