Willow Industries joins the Cannabis Research Coalition in their efforts to further scientific research in the cannabis industry

DENVER, June 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Willow Industries, the leader in cannabis decontamination technology and microbial control services, announced its strategic partnership with the Cannabis Research Coalition (CRC). The collaboration is aimed to support the CRC’s initiatives to further advance the exploration of the cannabis plant and create a sustainable, efficient, and successful industry.

Collaborating with academia and industry stakeholders through a cooperative research model, the CRC works in partnership with the Flowering Physiology Laboratory at Clemson University, developing science-based research to address cultivation and post-harvest issues that challenge today’s cannabis industry.

With a shared commitment to push the boundaries of cannabis research and development, Willow Industries has donated WillowAir units to the coalition, ensuring the highest standards throughout the research process. Engineered to capture and remove airborne contaminants, the air filtration system not only protects employees from respiratory hazards in cultivation facilities but also maintains a clean grow environment, ensuring product safety for patients and consumers.

“This partnership underscores how important industry collaboration and research initiatives are to the future of cannabis,” said Jill Ellsworth, Founder and CEO of Willow Industries. “With our shared values and commitment to advancing the industry, we are thrilled to join the Cannabis Research Coalition in their pursuit of scientific advancements and industry-wide standards.”

Through synergistic efforts and a shared passion for innovation and science, the coalition, composed of members from all facets of the cannabis industry, continues to be a catalyst for change.

“Today, we unite as pioneers in an emerging industry. Merely a month ago, the Federal government acknowledged the therapeutic potential of cannabis. The call for research, across all departments, resonates louder than ever and is only achieved through industry collaboration,” said Allison Justice, PhD, Founder and CEO of the Cannabis Research Coalition and The Hemp Mine.

Bolstered by the addition of Willow Industries, the coalition represents a pivotal step towards a more informed and scientifically robust cannabis industry and highlights the collective commitment of industry leaders to advancing cannabis research.
