Kelowna, B.C.-based cannabis products provider Valens GroWorks has received organic certification for cannabis oil production from Pro-Cert Organic Systems Ltd. for its proprietary CO2 and ethanol extraction processing methods in accordance with the Canadian Organic Standards.

Valens is focused on various proprietary extraction methodologies, distillation, cannabinoid isolation and purification, as well as associated quality testing.

The certification gives Valens the ability to produce certified organic cannabis oil from hemp and cannabis biomass that is organically cultivated and certified.

“We expect to see increased demand for organic cannabis and hemp products in the future,” said Tyler Robson, CEO of Valens GroWorks. “With certified organic processes in place, Valens is now in a position to work with these cultivators to bring certified organic cannabis oil-based products to market, an achievement which demonstrates our commitment to supporting our current and future clients’ needs.”

Valens said it will now be able to immediately begin offering certified organic cannabis oil processing to The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. from their certified organic cannabis and hemp under the multi-year extraction agreement announced March 11, 2019.
