SVG: Medicinal Cannabis Authority partners with software company

The Medicinal Cannabis Authority (MCA) in St Vincent and the Grenadines has partnered with Ample Organics to strengthen its medicinal cannabis industry by activating AmpleCentral- the world’s first national Cannabis Tracking System built for regulators. 

Ample Organics, which is a software company based in Toronto, Ontario, will provide sound industry-wide advice to the Authority as the medicinal cannabis industry emerges in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  

The Canadian company says a seed-to-sale software platform will be deployed to empower the MCA, along with physicians and pharmacists, to register and service medicinal cannabis patients.  

AmpleCentral is designed for governments to facilitate sophisticated reporting and to assist regulators with ensuring compliance, verifying product quantity and quality, taxation, and preventing diversion and inversion.  

The technology connects data points across the national cannabis supply chain, providing regulators with the information necessary to assure public, product, and patient safety.  

VP of Accounts and Education at Ample Organics, Tom Ritchie, said: “One of the reasons we have chosen to work with the Medicinal Cannabis Authority in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is their commitment to ensuring a successful cannabis industry through education.” 

In 2018, St Vincent and the Grenadines passed legislation for the decriminalization of marijuana for medicinal and scientific purposes.
