"We were interested in the quality and authenticity of used oils and the possible content of environmental contaminants - - polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAUs), for which maximum limits have been anchored in legislation for protecting the health of their consumers. PAUs may accumulate in oils for various reasons, most frequently resulting from incorrect drying procedures due to contamination from combustion gases. It may involve components of smoke during drying - incomplete combustion products," says Professor Hajšlová explaining the key point.Pavel Kubů, managing director of ICCI, adds: "Among CBD oils, we also examined the conformity of determined contents of CBD with the producer's stated values and potential THC content (tetrahydrocannabinol - the main psychotropic substance in marijuana).''
"ICCI is not a regulator. We offer public data and information; we are concerned with providing consumers with a service and with their safety. We meanwhile care about increasing the quality of the offer on the part of the cannabis industry, which has grown dramatically in recent years across the globe. We are contacting all manufacturers of tested products, we share the results and we offer help when checking the safety and increasing the quality of the product. The list of these products that satisfied limits valid for dietary supplements will be available to all consumers at the Website PFC International. Information will be provided to members of patient organizations associated in the international association IMCPC by means of the society KOPAC regarding the quality of a specific oil they are using. They will find out whether it was among those tested, and if so, with what results," adds Steph Sherer.
The Patient Focused Certification (PFC) program offers a variety of services designed to prepare businesses for excellence in the medical cannabis industry. PFC is what patients, healthcare providers, companies, and regulators can depend on to identify reliable, high-quality medical cannabis, businesses, products, and services. PFC offers company certification, consultation services, and industry training for any business regardless of its stage of development or role in the supply chain.
PFC was developed by Americans for Safe Access using the Cannabis Monograph created with the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP). These standards have been directly adopted by nearly half the medical cannabis programs in the US. PFC business certification and professional training are available in all medical cannabis states including the District of Columbia. PFC can help you no matter which state you are in, what you do, or what stage your business is in.
