Throughout New York and the Hudson Valley, more cannabis licenses are being announced and dispensaries are opening every day. As a growing market for cannabis makes its way through the region, the need for testing will also increase to assure consumers are buying a safe product. Whether for recreational use or to treat medical issues and disorders, cannabis is being consumed today at higher rates than in the past, and assessing the risks of the product is essential to maintaining the health and well-being of Hudson Valley residents.
Consequently, Certified Testing & Data (CTND) and Nova Analytic Labs just announced a relevant joint venture that will be launching in November. The new facility was licensed earlier this year as CTND NY and is a state-of-the-art testing lab in Albany that will be crucial in servicing the burgeoning market in the area. CTND has its sights set on revolutionizing the sector by setting a cannabis industry standard for scientific innovation, operational success, regulatory safety, and consumer education.

CTND aims to protect the health and well-being of consumers by offering analytical testing services in technologically advanced labs that are powered by a team of experts. The result is carefully crafted cannabis and hemp products that are guaranteed to be safe to consume. Similarly, Nova is the most trusted testing lab for cannabis and hemp in Maine. Identifying problems and optimizing processes contributes to the overall success of its partners, together creating a better, safer future.
The partnership between the two organizations hopes to provide solutions and consumer protection for all involved in the Hudson Valley’s cannabis market. With this new venture, CTND introduces its Certified Cannabis & CBD Check Marks as a way to verify the product is high quality and trusted by experts. This check mark is comparable to other signs of approval, like kosher and organic for food products, and indicates that the product is safe and meets the highest industry standards.

“This exciting new venture positions CTND as the premier partner for operators, providing extensive tailored services and quick turnaround times to fuel success and set a strong educational foundation for the market,” says Christopher Altomare, co-founder and CEO of Nova. CTND founder and CEO Aaron Riley adds, “Recent scrutiny of cannabis testing has highlighted widespread ethical lapses – our promise is absolute integrity. Consumers deserve to be confident that they are buying safe and accurately labeled products – the Certified Check Mark helps strengthen brands by securing this trust, significantly assuring purchasing decisions for the long term.”
CTND’s new Albany facility sets itself apart from other testing labs, going beyond routine compliance with a dedication to giving clients an edge in an increasingly competitive market.
CTND NY will be located at 150 Broadway, Suite 194 in Albany.
