(This story has been updated to note that Pennsylvania also uses Leaf Data Systems.)
Utah regulators selected Leaf Data Systems for its medical cannabis seed-to-sale traceability program.
Leaf Data is a product of Denver-based technology provider Akerna.
The next generation of Leaf Data Systems provides what it calls a “product authentication system.”
That system allows patients to “scan their product to learn the date of harvest, nutrients used, testing results, ingredients and more,” according to a news release.
The program is intended to help patients avoid fake products on the market.
Leaf Data Systems also serves as the state track-and-trace system for Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program and Washington state’s recreational cannabis market.
Washington state recently extended the contract so issues with the program’s latest software release can be remedied.
