March 6, 2019 – TORONTO, CANADA – Green Tank Technologies (“Green Tank” or the “Company”), a leading manufacturer of innovative, high-performance vaporization hardware announced today that its GT Spectrum CR cartridge has been found to meet rigorous North American standards and protocols for child-resistant certification, making Green Tank the first cannabis vape manufacturer to fully comply with such consumer product safety standards.
Green Tank’s Spectrum CR series is a new and innovative cartridge technology developed by the Company which allows for easy and reliable capping without the need for a press device. As part of Green Tank’s continued commitment to meeting the highest safety standards, the Company commissioned an independent study to validate Spectrum CR’s ability to meet the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) current standards and protocols for child-safe packaging as set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 16, Part 1700. Testing was conducted by an A2LA accredited laboratory with a 35-year track record in evaluating child-resistant packaging for industry and government.
Over the course of the evaluation, the lab tested Green Tank’s Spectrum Cartridge with a panel of children aged 42 to 51 months. The study concluded that once the Spectrum CR cartridge was locked, children in the control group were unable to access the oil in any capacity, fulfilling the CPSC’s requirements for child-resistant effectiveness with a zero percent failure rate.
“As vaporizers mature as a category, Green Tank and our licensed producer partners remain committed to producing safe, high-quality products,” said Dustin Koffler, CEO of Green Tank Technologies. “With vaporizer sales growing and with the second phase of Canada’s recreational cannabis legalization set to come into effect in the fall of 2019, Green Tank is focused on making vapes not just the most appealing method of consumption, but also the safest. As the first purpose-designed cannabis vape manufacturer in the industry to meet rigorous North American safety standards for child-resistance, Green Tank is well positioned to responsibly meet growing market demand.”
