Valens GroWorks Corp (CSE:VGW) (the “Company” or “Valens”), a multi-licensed vertically integrated provider of cannabis products and services utilizing proprietary extraction processes, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Supra THC Services has obtained ISO 17025 accreditation for cannabis testing. It is the first Dealer’s License using cannabis as it’s matrix in Canada to achieve this accreditation.

ISO 17025 accreditation scope includes methods for cannabinoids, pesticides, toxic metals, terpenes and residual solvents. The ISO 17025 standard, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, has become the international reference for testing and calibration laboratories wanting to demonstrate their capacity to deliver trusted results. The International Standard, published jointly by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), contains a set of requirements enabling laboratories to improve their ability to produce consistently valid results, by specifying the general requirements for the competence, impartiality and commitment to continuous improvement of the laboratory’s operations.


“I am very proud of our team. It is critical that all cannabis testing labs demonstrate that they can achieve similar performance standards so that consumers can trust that products tested are safe. Transparency is essential in this sector, and we are committed to help lead the way. Securing testing results from an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory is the best way for producers to ensure that they are producing high-quality, safe products. I would like to see Health Canada mandate that all licensed testing labs demonstrate that they can meet a similar standard.” commented Dr. Rob O’Brien, Valens’ CSO.
