TruTrace Technologies Joins Forces with Customer Engagement Expert PharmaCentra to Provide a Blockchain-Secured Ecosystem for Medical Cannabis
Companies will support quality-driven and traceability-focused clinical trials of cannabis-based therapies
TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TruTrace Technologies (CSE: TTT; OTCQB: TTTSF), developer of a fully-integrated blockchain platform for the legal cannabis, food, and pharmaceutical industries, today announced that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Georgia-based PharmaCentra LLC – through its subsidiary CannabisBPO -- to support a clinical trial ecosystem built on standardized protocols and testing of cannabis products for use in the medical industry.
“As cannabis gains acceptance as a useful component of therapies to treat serious medical conditions, it is critical to ensure that all products used for patient care are safe and consistent,” says Robert Galarza, CEO of TruTrace. “This partnership is an important step toward making that a reality because there will be repeatable, verifiable processes for measuring the efficacy of cannabis-derived compounds that the entire biopharma industry can use to improve the quality of the therapies that are available to people who need them.”
With decades of experience in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector, PharmaCentra decided to enter the cannabis space several years ago and operationalized as CannabisBPO. “We recognized that our background and service suite were transferable and necessary skills for the maturing cannabis market,” says Dan Berman, CEO of PharmaCentra and CannabisBPO. “We have deep knowledge in both sectors to bridge the knowledge gap between the two industries. In the pharmaceutical industry, the efficacy of the supply chain is rarely questioned – it’s just assumed to be measured correctly. Unfortunately, the same is not true for the cannabis sector as a whole. That’s why, together with TruTrace, we are excited to be playing a key role in bringing these standards to the industry.”
