Connecticut has selected Forian Inc.’s BioTrack technology as its seed-to-sale tracking software as the state rolls out its adult-use cannabis program.
The state’s Department of Consumer Protection Drug Control Division will use the tracking system to monitor the movement of cannabis products in both the medical and adult-use markets, according to a Yahoo! Finance report.
“Connecticut has shown their desire to be at the forefront of cannabis by looking for best-in-class software solutions,” BioTrack Vice President Moe Afaneh told the news outlet. “We are very excited to work with the state to develop new technologies to support their cannabis-related initiatives.”
BioTrack’s software will track cannabis across the supply chain, from when it is planted as a seed to the point of sale in Connecticut’s dispensaries, the news outlet reported. The tracking system will also provide a real-time inventory of cannabis products that are available in the state to help prevent the diversion of products to the illicit market.
In addition, the software will aid in the recall of cannabis plants and products that are deemed unsafe for consumption, according to Yahoo! Finance.
All of Connecticut’s licensed medical and adult-use cannabis businesses will be required to use the BioTrack software to log the movement of cannabis as it is cultivated, manufactured into finished products, packaged, tested, and sold to registered medical patients and adult-use consumers, the news outlet reported.
BioTrack’s seed-to-sale tracking system is currently used by customers in 38 U.S. states and 10 countries, according to Yahoo! Finance, with 10 state governments using its patient portal and traceability system.
Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont signed the state’s adult-use cannabis law in June, with sales slated to launch sometime next year.
