ARLINGTON, TX, May 12, 2017 – With the cannabis market emerging in the U.S., RICCA Chemical Company announced a new line of products designed for the cannabis industry. These new products focus on extracting cannabinoids from cannabis and meeting state testing requirements. Solutions for the cannabis industry include products such as: extraction chemicals, terpenes , residual solvent and heavy metals (AA, ICP) testing products accredited to ISO 17025 and Guide 34, high purity water and general use reagents.
“As the largest independent manufacturer of solutions and standards in North America, we’d be remiss to overlook a growing industry like cannabis. Recent legalization by several states for both medical and adult use have impacted the market tremendously. We are excited to provide high-quality chemicals for lab testing and for cannabis extraction,” said Doug Dowd, President at RICCA.
The newest of these products are those for cannabis processing. Like cannabinoids, terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and give rise to various effects. Terpenes help to create consistent flavor, effect and aroma in cannabis products. A partial list of these products include: Camphene, Mycrene, Teripinole and D-Limonene. RICCA’s extensive line of food grade terpenes for cannabis processors are in stock and ready to ship.
RICCA’s new line of Solutions for the cannabis industry are ready for order now. RICCA Chemical team members will be attending tradeshows for the cannabis industry like the Spring and Fall 2017 Marijuana Business Conference & Expo and Cannabis Science Conference 2017 to introduce the product line.
Laboratories that source with RICCA can expect the highest level of quality with ISO 17025/Guide 34 accreditations. In addition to increased confidence in analyses, laboratories get detailed Certificates of Analysis depicting traceability of measurements and calibrations to national standards. RICCA also has 3 manufacturing plants in the United States to ensure risk mitigation of supply chain disruption.
