ACS Laboratory deemed Essential Service Provider & Open Amid COVID-19 Closures

Written by Shared Content

As a vital third-party testing laboratory for medical cannabis treatment centers, ACS will remain open.

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Medical cannabis companies and treatment centers rely on third laboratory testing to report the safety and efficacy of products on their shelves. More importantly, patients rely on access to vital cannabis recommendations. That’s why ACS took action to be declared as an “essential service provider.”

Although the sun continues to rise and set, the world as we know it today is a difficult time. Amidst the spread of COVID19, states and local officials in Florida are taking measures to enact curfews, close non-essential businesses, and cancel group gatherings. Florida medical marijuana treatment centers and ACS Laboratory are akin to healthcare and pharmaceutical services, which are “critical infrastructure” according to the Department of Homeland Security.

 “ACS’s ability to do its part is integral to ensure that there is an adequate supply of verified, properly tested medical marijuana available to qualifying patients in Florida at all times,” said Roger Brown, President of ACS Laboratory.

Many patients rely on medical marijuana products for relief from conditions such as chronic pain, nausea, epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorder. They need access to recommended products that have passed the state’s regulatory standards for safety. This can only occur if a highly qualified laboratory like ACS remains operational, even in the face of mandatory emergency orders.

“Our stellar customer service and essential testing services will continue in the face of this pandemic. As of now we are not experiencing delays and will continue delivering test results as quickly as possible.” Additionally, Roger stated, “I personally want to inform every client that ACS Laboratory is here to support your business so we can continue serving patients with life changing medicine. If we stay calm and diligent, we will all get through this crisis together.”
