DENVER, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Trichome Institute of Denver announces the release of the Trichome Assurance Grade, (TAG™). The program is the first of its kind to develop a method of systematically, consistently, objectively and accurately judging cannabis quality.

The TAG™ process has rigorous standards that start with expert technicians reviewing each cannabis sample. All TAG™ technicians have passed Trichome's Level 3 Interpening® certification. They utilize Trichome's proprietary system for measuring various cannabis attributes at a macro and microscopic level.

A TAG™ score is created for each cannabis flower sample using weighted classifications based on the Trichome quality calculator. A detailed report is created that lists all observations, macro and micro photos, and an objective numerical value of the sample's quality.

The TAG™ relies on inter-rater reliability to remove subjectivity from the grading process.

Trichome is currently working with application developers, wholesale exchanges, cannabis cups, celebrity brands and dispensaries who offer premium TAG™ flower for sale now. More information about the TAG™ and Interpening® program can be found at
