A new app has been launched to provide retailers, patients and consumers access to product information to help inform purchase decisions.
Figr, Inc., a vertically integrated legal cannabis company officially launched its Figr Budtender app, an interactive tool intended for budtenders and consumers. The app displays data drawn from the traceability platform, SENTRI SM, to provide users with cannabis education regarding their product throughout its supply chain journey.
Cannabis education on your phone
The Figr Budtender app is available for Apple and Android devices.
“Transparency in the industry means providing consumers with the knowledge they need and deserve to make informed decisions,” said Harvey Carroll, President of Figr. “Figr is focused on providing this transparency through its various services, including the Budtender app.”
By scanning the Figr logo and inputting the product lot number on the packaging, app users can access product details, including where and when the cannabis plant used to create a product was harvested, how long the specific cannabis was cured, and its terpene and cannabinoid profile. The app expands upon the company’s web track and trace application, which has been available since October 17 2018.
“The Budtender app permits retailer and consumer access to information about the source of products and how they are processed. With access to this information, app users can begin to educate themselves on which products they prefer,” said Zack Grossman, Marketing Director at Figr.
Figr is a vertically integrated legal cannabis company headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, that operates under one sole purpose: to put character into everything it does.
