“We are very excited to bring Steep Hill's industry"leading cannabis testing methods to Alaska. Providing cannabis testing across such a geographically dispersed area like Alaska poses unique challenges, and Steep Hill’s innovative hub-and-spoke approach to providing remote testing was among the driving factors in our decision to work with them. Central to this solution is a proprietary system that can provide testing in Alaskan communities that are not on the road system. In addition, this agreement will enable us to bring testing capabilities to Alaska that are far beyond those that are currently available here, such as genetics testing and strain identification. We hope to work with the State Marijuana Control Board to demonstrate the value of these customized, world-class solutions in helping to ensure the safety and proper labeling of cannabis products throughout the entire Alaskan marketplace,” said Steep Hill Alaska CEO Brian Coyle.
