3 Carbon Extractions, an industry leader in regulatory compliant cannabis hydrocarbon extraction solutions, has entered into a collaboration with CannabisWise to provide expert advice on standards for cannabis extracts.
3 Carbon will advise them on quality assurance standards for light hydrocarbon-based manufacturing and extraction methods.
CannabisWise is an accreditation program established by the BC based National Institute for Cannabis Health and Education (NICHE) earlier this year in response to Canada’s plan to legalize cannabis. This voluntary program is to set quality standards for various industry sectors in the post-prohibition marketplace, including cannabis extraction.

3 Carbon Extractions CEO Phillip Kwong said, “We are excited to be collaborating with this exciting initiative. With Cannabis Wise, our sector will ensure consumers have access to more information and cannabis products that are the result of rigorous quality control standards at all stages of the process.”
Veritas Pharma has 50% stake in 3 Carbon and its CEO, Dr. Lui Franciosi stated: “We share the same view with Phillip as well as NICHE’s CEO Barinder Rasode, in that there is a need to know the origins of products being sold, whether recreational or medical. They should come from a legal source, be tested for proper consumer labelling about ingredients and usage, and any health claims on product labels should be supported by scientific evidence.”
