SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cannabis technology innovator Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) announced a bold new acquisition today poised to dramatically boost the number and effectiveness of the testing and demonstration services that the company will offer to the rapidly rising U.S. cannabis industry. This week, GTSO acquired a Class 5 clean room in Colorado that will serve as a center for hygienic testing and quality control services to cannabis growers and retailers.
“This lab-classified clean room is a germ- and pest-free environment where we can reliably test cannabis products for contamination, potency and breeding,” said GTSO CEO Wallace E. Browne. “We’ll also be able to demonstrate new, environmentally friendly alternatives to pesticides and harsh cleansers used in the industry. These are valuable, novel services in a fast-growing industry that currently has difficulty guaranteeing their products to consumers.”
By acquiring a working lab capable of testing and demonstrating cannabis products, GTSO expects to help the growing number of cannabis professionals in the U.S. refine their offerings and guarantee product purity and consistency to their customers. The company is currently evaluating its options for the location of the facility. The clean room was acquired without a commitment for lease, which was a key consideration for making the deal.
GTSO has already acquired emerging horticultural innovator Mother Parker’s Soil and formed a joint venture with cannabis edibles developer Elevated Industries in order to deliver new products tailored to cannabis businesses and consumers. The company will continue to scout for new opportunities to acquire the “next big thing” in America’s next big industry.
