In today’s landscape of a thriving illicit cannabis market, consumers face substantial health risks when they are consuming cannabis purchased from unlicensed operators. Legal cannabis businesses must meet strict requirements before putting their products on the shelves and must follow the regulations when it comes to product safety, quality, packaging, and labelling. By purchasing products that have not gone through the strict testing requirements, consumers may be exposed to potential harmful pesticides, heavy metals, microbes, fungi, mold, or even added additives contained in the products they consume.
Veed chose Canoja Technologies, a cannabis licensing data verification and automation company as a partner for its badging system, whose CanojaVerify solution automatically verifies the legitimacy and license status on a daily basis. “A key part of Veed’s mission is to provide a safe and trusted place for the cannabis community to learn, engage with their network, with brands and organizations, and to shop through our platform,” said Barry Perkins, CEO of Veed, Inc. Adding Veed Badges on each business partner profile page provides consumers and members within Veed’s community a greater peace of mind when they interact with brands and shop on Veed Network.
“The partnership with Canoja Technologies is a natural fit as both of our companies are committed to elevating the cannabis industry by providing consumers with the verification that the brands on our platform hold active licenses,” added Barry.
“Veed requires absolute compliance of all their clients to ensure that they are licensed business connections and they operate within the framework of SEC guidance and existing state laws. It’s really that due diligence during their user onboarding process that makes Veed an ideal partner for CanojaVerify,” Rich Campbell, CEO of Canoja Technologies added.
The value of adding the Veed Badge on Veed Network is not only beneficial to the consumers but also to Veed’s business partners. Marvin Wilcher, CEO of CampNova, cannabis online marketplace and delivery platform known for celebrity brands, stated, “At CampNova, we work with many high-caliber celebrity brands who have entrusted us to protect their brand value. Adding Veed Badges on the Veed Network gives our celebrity clients even more confidence that we always strive to protect their personal brands by working with trusted partners who value consumer safety and trust.”
