(OTCQB:APPB) ("Applied" or the "Company"), a vertically integrated company focused on the development of science-driven cannabinoid biopharmaceuticals and the production of high-quality CBD products, today announced that its majority owned subsidiary, Trace Analytics Inc., entered into a contract for services with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) on July 24, 2019. This contract will include testing Industrial Hemp samples and include percentage testing for post-decarboxylation delta 9-tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC) and delta 9-tetrahydocannabinolic acid (THC-A).
The WSDA has contracted Trace Analytics for the purpose of doing cannabinoid profiling for the State’s industrial hemp program to ensure the percentages of certain cannabinoids are below Federal limits.
“We are grateful to the WSDA and to have been chosen as the sole laboratory in Washington State to do cannabinoid profiling for the WSDA’s Industrial Hemp program. We believe this contract provides us with the significant opportunity to bolster and diversify our testing portfolio into industrial hemp and we hope to be able to partner with the agency for a long time to come,” commented Jason Zitzer, Chief Operating Officer of Trace Analytics. “Throughout the drafting, writing and ratification of the Washington State Hemp Bill, Trace Analytics has been an integral part of the process in working with the industry groups. We submitted all of the paperwork and submitted the hemp processors application along with a detailed site map to the WSDA for lab testing licensing consideration. We have already begun receiving samples and reporting results and to date, the program has gone extremely well.”
