When you need medication, you want to be sure you're getting a safe, high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade product. And that's just what Peace Naturals delivers. When the federal government issued new, stricter regulations on marijuana production, the Simcoe County producer rose to the challenge. Peace Naturals worked with a team of experts to create operating procedures, security guidelines and safe production practices that have now become standard across the industry. Gas chromatography analysis in the HACCP-rated facility's on-site lab determines the metabolic profile of each lot of cannabis, while each step of production is carefully tracked. The 20-person operation is exceeding revenue expectations, creating local rural jobs, setting industry standards and providing a reliable supply of alternative medicine to Canadians with chronic medical conditions.
