ADAS Launches Sustainable and Responsible Value Chain Service for Cannabis

Published on

Over the last couple of years there has been growing interest in the cannabis plant for a range of applications. Historically cannabis, industrial hemp, was widely used and growing of the crop was even a legal requirement during Henry VIIIth’s reign for plots over 60 acres to support production of materials.   

ADAS Launches Sustainable and Responsible Value Chain Service for Cannabis

Recently there has been a resurgence in the use of legally produced and processed cannabis derivatives in the form of medical cannabis, following landmark legislation in the UK on November 1st, and following the permitting of CBD oil sales in 2016.

Further interest in industrial hemp has been growing during this time as sectors seek benefits from sustainably produced crops that can be used for construction or textiles or packaging.

As a result of growing interest in legal cannabis production, we have seen an increasing number of questions across a range of topics, based on what can and cannot be done. ADAS have therefore launched a service to support the sector, from growers to brands to help answer questions and work with the sector to develop in a responsible and sustainable manner. ADAS are already engaged in a range of advanced conversations with a number of marketplace operators and we are well positioned to be go-to service provider for the development of a responsible and sustainable cannabis value chain.

ADAS, are able to support in the growth and development of legitimate value chains by enabling the development of a marketplace by working on collaborations based on quality research, insight and advice that is robust and independent. ADAS can work across the sector, from farmers to producers to brands of cannabis based products to support the development of a responsible and sustainable value chain – that is genuinely focused on the merits of the crops and applications.
