Canopy Growth Details Rigorous Testing Procedures

Re-introducing the Tweed Main Street Quality Assurance Program

SMITHS FALLS, ON, April 26, 2017 /CNW/ – Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF) (“Canopy Growth” or the “Company”) is pleased to update its patients and stakeholders with details of the rigorous procedures in place for cannabis purchased through the Tweed Main Street online store.

Under Canopy Growth management, our licensed producers have shipped over 300,000 orders of cannabis, representing over 7 million grams of clean, reliable cannabis products to our customers. Under Canopy management, we have never had a product quality recall for selling our products, or anyone else’s for that matter.

Tweed and its sister companies have always had the most rigorous quality assurance and testing procedures in place to protect our clients. As part of our move to a single store for all clients, we are formalizing the program so customers can understand the processes we have in place for every product they buy.

A rigorous pesticide testing program has been introduced to reinforce client confidence, along with new investments into technology to conduct more advanced pesticide testing on-site.

At every licensed facility we operate – five in total covering 655,000 square feet – everything from plants, equipment, and our production rooms are uniquely identified, traceable and undergo multiple quality checks and reviews, to a level of testing that goes far beyond the industry standard. For all products sold, we ensure a rigorous review and third party testing process, and always tell our clients where the product has come from. This level of transparency and rigour is one reason that tens of thousands of patients rely on our companies for their medicine.

Nothing enters our production facilities without the sign-off of a quality control professional, and every single control point, from cloning to the final lot release testing, is reviewed by our Quality Assurance team prior to lot release. Our typical lot release report is over 100 pages long, and we operate our own state-of-the-art laboratory for in-process testing, while relying on world-class third party labs for final testing of product prior to release.
