Washington state cannabis regulators authorized a two-month contract extension for Leaf Information Systems, the seed-to-sale tracking solution presented by Denver-primarily based computer software organization Akerna.
The contract lasts till Nov. 30, “to concentrate solely on delivering a steady method to our customers,” mentioned Megan Duffy, deputy director and executive sponsor of the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB), in a release.
“The LCB’s priority is to guarantee that a traceability method is in location and that there is no additional disruption to market,” Duffy added.
The LCB also states that Leaf Information will perform on “addressing post-release difficulties.”
The computer software release (version 1.37.five) in mid-July took down the Washington state traceability method for days, costing thousands of dollars in lost company for cannabis company owners.
Akerna, which is the outcome of a merger involving MTech and MJ Freeway, trades on the Nasdaq as KERN.
