Prodigy Processing Solutions today announced its strategic partnership with Solvent Direct, a supplier of solvents specifically engineered for cannabis extraction. The alliance marks a step forward in elevating the extraction process to meet and exceed pharmaceutical and consumer safety standards across the cannabis and hemp industries.

"Our partnership with Solvent Direct aligns perfectly with Prodigy's strategic vision of integrating the highest standards of safety and compliance into every facet of the cannabis extraction process," said Marc Beginin, CEO of Prodigy Processing Solutions. "As we stand on the cusp of FDA oversight, this partnership will ensure our clients are not just prepared for cannabis legalization, but are leading the way in compliance and safety."

Both Prodigy and Solvent Direct adhere to the stringent requirements for full Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance for both food and pharma standards, including comprehensive requirement specification, functional specification, design specification, testing protocols, traceability with detailed documentation, and standard operating procedures. This mutual commitment to excellence ensures that together, Prodigy and Solvent Direct are setting the industry benchmark for product safety and reliability.

As anticipation grows for the rescheduling of cannabis to Schedule III, which will significantly impact pharma research and propel the development of cannabis-based pharmaceutical products, Prodigy stands out as the only manufacturer of hydrocarbon cannabis extraction equipment fully prepared to meet the ensuing needs of the pharmaceutical industry and pending FDA consumer safety standards.

The strategic partnership will be highlighted at the upcoming MJ Unpacked event, taking place April 9 β€“ 11, 2024 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where Prodigy is the exclusive sponsor of the event's Garden Lounge. Representatives of both companies will be on hand to engage with attendees on the future of compliance in the cannabis extraction industry. Prodigy representatives will also be in attendance at Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference the following week, April 16-17, in Hollywood, Florida.

As the industry evolves, Prodigy continues to establish a framework that not only meets today's standards but anticipates tomorrow's regulations, ensuring cannabis clients are ready for an era of FDA compliance from food-grade to pharmaceutical-grade products.
