New Isolator XXX™ Column Delivers Increased SFC Purification Efficiency

PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Thar Process Inc., global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced technologies for the extraction and purification of natural products, announces a new Isolator XXX(TM) phase for hemp/cannabis extract purification by supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC).

The Isolator(TM) series of column media (stationary phases) are specifically engineered for hemp/cannabis purification to allow Thar's customers to remediate their extracts from unwanted compounds such as pesticides/fungicides or THC; they work best when run on Isolator SFC(TM) series systems.

The novel Isolator XXX(TM) is a bonded silica-based stationary phase available in 10, 15 and 20 um sizes allowing for greater polar retention through a useful range of interaction mechanisms. Thar's Isolator SFC(TM) systems utilize dynamic axial compression (DAC) columns to allow for simple pack/re-packing of material - which allows users to switch applications daily if necessary.

"We developed the Isolator XXX phase to help customers who were struggling with retention time variability, inadequate column lifetimes, long run times, and low retention of highly non-polar compounds like cannabinoids," explained Lalit Chordia, PhD., CEO of Thar Process. "With these new phases specifically designed for the interaction between hemp extract moving through a column in CO2 with only 2% ethanol as a co-solvent - we can dramatically reduce the operating costs associated with making compliant and non-detectable Broad Spectrum CBD oils."

To ensure high reproducibility, each Thar Isolator XXX(TM) column and batch is certified by a stringent QC process comparing both analytical and DAC columns from the same batch. This ensures the applicability of this new media for commonly used types of detection such as UV-VIS, ELSD and MS. In addition to the selectivity and particle performance benefits, a simplified set of running conditions was developed for use with the Isolator XXX(TM) system - allowing for universal training and support for customers around the world. Thar's new Isolator SFC(TM) customers can be found on 3 continents only 6 months after launching the Beta systems. The systems purify up to 3 kgs/day of extracts. Thar Process intends to publish significant data on the isolation of minor cannabinoids and other non-hemp natural product extracts in the coming months.

We incorporate beneficial fruit seed oils into our tinctures and salves to give our customers the most effective and targeted relief possible," says TrueMedX Dallas partner, Charley Smith. "That's what makes TrueMedX Dallas unique and outstanding. We pay close attention to the research available on CBD receptors in our bodies.

We start with a low dosage, perhaps 1/2 ml. upon waking up each day to start as we seek out the "sweet spot" for each individual. A Comfort and Ease Tea might also be consumed. Our ECS needs the molecules in CBD and all its components to help to regulate ALL our bodies systems. That's why the ECS is known as our "Master Regulatory System."

I am excited to be offering both product lines at the same place."

The first GV Apothecary was opened at 1321 Erie Blvd in Schenectady on October 24th of this year. Due to the overwhelming positive feedback he has received, Kruger has decided to move quickly opening their second location. "Our current customers are receiving the change very positively and we have seen several new faces over the past month that love our product line," said Kruger.

Both retail locations are kicking off the holiday shopping season with their annual donation drive. This year they are working with Street Soldiers 3 in Schenectady. GV Apothecary is taking donations Black Friday through the holiday season and they offer a discount to anyone who makes a donation. A list of items they are looking to collect can be found on their Facebook page.

GV Apothecary will be offering huge discounts at both locations throughout Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, along with raffles, giveaways, education sessions and refreshments.

Kruger is excited about everything GV Apothecary is celebrating this weekend: "We have a lot to celebrate this weekend. We are launching our new Rotterdam location, kicking off our donation drive for a great community organization, Street Soldiers 3, and we are starting the holiday season. I hope everyone comes by to drop off a donation that will go to great use and to check out our new model and learn about what we are doing with GV Apothecary."

Georgetown Hemp Subscribes to ‘Seed to Sale’ Model

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The CBD industry is exploding and with that surge comes a host of consumer questions and concerns about the safety and efficacy of products. That's where Georgetown Hemp comes in. On November 17 from noon to 6 p.m., it's hosting a grand opening of its new store at 11607 Nebel Street. People are encouraged to visit to find out what makes its business different.

CNN recently reported that 66 percent of CBD products found on shelves are labeled inaccurately. For example, if you have two CBD products that each boast 400 mg, the potency and clean factor of each could be wildly different. Not all CBD products are created equal. The quality of the product has to do with the environment in which it was grown and how it was grown. All Georgetown Hemp products are organically grown and processed.

Georgetown Hemp has traveled around the world to meet with farmers and receives first-hand, factual information about the products it sells. It places a high value on research and education.

"We understand that finding the right CBD product to fit an individual's need can be overwhelming, that's why we created a business model that's both customer-centric and industry focused," Daniel Simmonds, owner, Georgetown Hemp says.

Georgetown Hemp staff is a group of self-proclaimed "compliance geeks."

"We're experts in the industry and our main priority is product security and safety. sales flow naturally," Simmonds says. "We offer the 'Georgetown Hemp Seal of Approval' to ensure trustworthiness in the stores to where we distribute."

The company has a strict protocol vetting manufacturers and ensuring quality is followed from seed to sale. All products are tracked from seed to store by batch numbers and random batch testing is performed. Quality is always a priority.

The grand opening will have a host of people on hand to field questions and share information. They'll include farmers, an organic chemist, testing lab, manufacturer, co-packer, doctors, acupuncturists and more.

The end analysis is that when people purchase CBD from Georgetown Hemp, they're not only getting an exceptional product, but also great reassurance.

About Georgetown Hemp

Georgetown Hemp is a science-based, hemp and CBD specialty retail store. For each product it sells, staff visits the farm, the labs and the processing centers where products are manufactured. It's a wholesale distributor and B2B consultant and the first in the nation business of its kind. It has a top knowledge base on all things hemp and CBD and is the doctor and pharmacy choice for CBD products and related information.

Georgetown Hemp is open from 10 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

EPIC Launches Cannabis Site Pollution Liability (CSPL) Insurance Program

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Greyling Insurance Brokerage & Risk Consulting (Greyling), a division of EPIC Insurance Brokers & Consultants (EPIC), today announced the first nationwide Site Pollution Liability Insurance Program for the emerging cannabis industry.

Available in states where cannabis is legal for recreational and medical use, the new EPIC program is designed to provide coverage for a material gap in Commercial General Liability and Umbrella/Excess Liability policies for the cannabis industry, as these policies exclude losses resulting from pollution/pollutants on, at, under, or emanating from an insured location.

The EPIC/Greyling Cannabis Site Pollution Liability (CSPL) insurance program protects growers, processors and retail dispensaries from claims alleging third party bodily injury and property damage liability claims as well as corrective action costs (investigation/cleanup costs) at or from an insured site. The program is competitively priced, with minimum premiums for annual policies as low as $4,000.

Cannabis growers are exposed to pollution liability claims resulting from fertilizers and other chemicals used in the growing process (indoors or outdoors). Cannabis processors commonly use chemicals like ethanol to produce oils and concentrates and to extract CBD from the product and face exposure from these operations, as well.

Retail dispensaries face pollution exposure from building heating/cooling systems, building maintenance and other operations, and are increasingly required to provide evidence of pollution liability coverage to landlords. The EPIC/Greyling CSPL program is designed to provide valuable protection to all of these operations.

Key features of the program include:
* Automatic Additional Insured where required by written contract (e.g. lease of premises)
* Automatic Waiver of Subrogation
* Corrective Action Costs include those recommended by an Environmental Professional
* Coverage included for civil fines, penalties or assessments arising out of a Pollution Condition where allowable by law
* Natural Resource Damages included in definition of Property Damage
* Mitigation (emergency) Expense coverage for costs incurred within 7 days of a Pollution Incident
* Terrorism coverage automatically included
* Defense Expenses for third party bodily injury/ property damage liability claims and for corrective action costs
* Illicit abandonment included in definition of Pollution Incident
* Manuscript Cannabis endorsement with broad definition of cannabis products
* Low deductibles (starting at $5,000 each pollution incident)
* Fast quote turnaround
* Simple binding/policy issuance process
* Open to retail and wholesale agents and brokers.

GV Apothecary Announces the Launch of Their New Retail Model, Re-Branding a Former Schenectady Vape Shop

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- GV Apothecary, a harm reduction and alternative wellness retailer, has announced that their new retail concept is set to open on Thursday, October 24 at 11 a.m. at 1321 Erie Blvd in Schenectady. The unique storefront will feature a variety of CBD and hemp-based products, and other harm reduction and alternative wellness products.

It is the first retail location of its kind in Schenectady and will be located in a former vape shop that was also owned and operated by Mike Kruger, the owner of GV Apothecary. The change in business model comes as a result of Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent executive action to ban the sale of flavored e-liquid products in New York State.

"This is a model we have been considering for some time now," said Kruger, who is also the President of Eu4ia CBD, a local CBD product manufacturer. "We have been established in the local e-cigarette market for six years and we have been successful in helping our customers improve their lives through quitting smoking tobacco. We are dedicated to them and we are going to do what is necessary to continue to serve our loyal customers."

GottaVape was founded in 2013 in Schenectady County and was the first stand-alone retail outlet in the Capital District dedicated to e-cigarette products.

Kruger is enthusiastic about the opening of GV Apothecary: "We are very proud of this concept and we are extremely excited to bring both of our businesses together to offer the public a variety of wellness and harm reduction products under one roof."

GV Apothecary will be open for business Monday through Saturday. For more information about the October 24 launch, please contact Mike Kruger at 518-346-0500 or mike@gvapothecary.com.
