EVIO, Inc. (OTCQB: EVIO), a leading provider of cannabis analytical testing services, this morning announced that it is now prepared to offer accredited testing services to Oregon’s industrial hemp sector. “Industrial hemp is a rapidly growing industry with product applications ranging from foods like hemp seed, personal care products, textiles, and other industrial and consumer goods such as building materials,” Lori Glauser, COO of EVIO, stated in the news release. “In fact, hemp-based CBD oil alone is projected to reach $1 billion in sales by 2020, and, notably, big box stores like Target and Wal Mart are already offering the product.” This morning’s update comes as the Oregon Department of Agriculture, in coordination with the Oregon Health Authority, moves to allow accredited cannabis labs to perform tests of industrial hemp in order to accommodate rising demand within the state. Previously, only the Oregon Department of Agriculture was authorized to perform these tests. EVIO will look to leverage its state-of-the-art testing facilities and accredited testing methodologies to capitalize on this opportunity, as all of the 233 actively licensed industrial hemp growers in the state of Oregon are required to complete testing prior to harvest in order to ensure that their hemp is qualified for sale.
