CORONA, Calif, Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acology Inc. (OTCMARKETS:ACOL) confirmed today that its signature product, the MedTainer™, is compliant for the entire North American market, and specifically for the growing Canadian cannabis market, for child-resistance and material composition. By meeting these statutes Acology had positioned its multi-functional container and fulfills the requirements that Canada’s Licensed Producers(LPs) must maintain for legal cannabis packaging and retail sales. Acology already does business with several of these LPs. The net effect of this announcement means that the MedTainer, an FDA approved #5 polypropylene container that is water-proof, smell-proof, certified child-resistant and includes a built-in grinder, is now in a position to do business with ALL of the Canadian LPs. The MedTainer now sits at the top of the cannabis packaging market. Including North America, the MedTainer is now certified in Great Britain, Europe and Asia. (See attached)
The confirmation comes from the prestigious Child Related Research, Inc. in Murray, Utah. The company confirmed that the MedTainer “meet(s) the child test protocol (Canadian) requirements of… CSA-Z76.1 or 16CFR 1700.20.” The testing protocols that the MedTainer was subjected to were extremely rigorous, exceeding testing protocols used by other compliancy companies.
It also signifies that, as more states pass legislation legalizing cannabis sales, that the MedTainer will become the primary packaging resource for growers and manufacturers throughout North America. Acology’s reach is global, with distributors in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
