Confident Cannabis Partners with Cannabis Benchmarks to Integrate Cannabis Price Data with Laboratory Test Data

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - February 02, 2017) - Confident Cannabis™, a division of CC Software, LLC, and Cannabis Benchmarks®, a division of New Leaf Data Services, LLC, have announced a partnership to bring customized wholesale pricing estimates to cannabis businesses. For the first time, this partnership will connect user-submitted pricing data from Cannabis Benchmarks to third-party analytical laboratory testing information from the Confident Cannabis platform.

The service, launching first in Oregon, will be available to clients of any Confident Cannabis-enabled lab. With every flower product tested, Confident Cannabis clients receive a customized price estimate based on key factors in hundreds of recent comparable transactions. To improve the accuracy of price estimates they receive, users can report actual sales of their own lab-tested products directly through their Confident Cannabis results page. This community-driven approach will improve market transparency, allowing cultivators and producers to sell more inventory at higher prices and dispensaries and manufacturers to make better informed purchase decisions.

"Cannabis Benchmarks and Confident Cannabis are both committed to bringing transparency to the cannabis industry. This partnership will increase efficiency in the cannabis wholesale market and bring the highest quality and safest products to patients and consumers," said Jonathan Rubin, CEO of New Leaf Data Service, LLC.

"Cannabis laboratory tests are more than just regulatory requirements. Cannabinoid, terpene and safety profiles are tools for all participants in the market -- including businesses, patients and consumers -- to make better purchase decisions. Confident Cannabis is committed to working with the leading cannabis scientists in the country to unlock this valuable laboratory testing information. Working with Cannabis Benchmarks, our clients can correlate their test results to current wholesale market prices for the first time with producer-supplied pricing data," said Tony Lewis, President & Co-Founder of Confident Cannabis.

“This partnership will increase efficiency in the cannabis wholesale market and bring the highest quality and safest products to patients and consumers”
