TORONTO, ON, January 28, 2020 – Molecular Science Corp. (MSC) is pleased to announce that it has successfully imported medical cannabis samples for analytical purposes from its client Jacana Therapeutics Limited (“Jacana”), based in Kingston, Jamaica.
MSC will provide Jacana with ongoing access to a high standard of regulated analytical testing for cannabis including chemical testing for potency, pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, terpenes, as well as testing for microbial contamination.
“MSC is proud of being a leader in analytical testing of cannabis products and of Canada’s rigorous quality standards. We’re pleased to support Jacana Therapeutics in their goal to bring exceptional, high quality products to markets around the world.” said Christian Carswell, CEO, Molecular Science Corp.
“As pioneers in the burgeoning Jamaican cannabis industry, we continue to ensure the highest level of quality control and testing on our cannabis products. At Jacana, we are focused on ensuring Jamaican cannabis is represented on an international scale and are pleased to be working closely with Molecular Science Corp. as a certified testing laboratory to ensure our products meet internationally recognized quality standards.” said, Alexandra Chong, CEO of Jacana Therapeutics Limited.
Licensed cultivators and processors in Jamaica face limitations concerning access to and standardization of analytical testing of medical cannabis and cannabis-derived products. With Canada leading the way in regulatory analytical testing for cannabis and cannabis-derived products, the opportunity for MSC (a licensed Canadian, 3rd party laboratory) to support Jacana with its analytical testing requirements will help address these barriers while advancing Canada’s reputation as a leader in cannabis safety and quality testing
