Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Approves Kaycha Labs for their USDA Approved Hemp Program

Fort Lauderdale, Florida — May 8th  2020,  Kaycha Labs, a marijuana and hemp testing laboratory company, executed an agreement with the Florida Department of Agriculture (FDACS) to become their first Designated Compliance Laboratory, to procure samples for their mandatory compliance testing program and provide required Potency Analysis for the Department of Plant Industry.

Recently, the USDA approved the FDACS Hemp Program that provides for the issuance of Hemp Cultivation Licenses.  Florida regulation requires hemp to have compliance samples pulled by a designated approved representative and for those samples to be analyzed for Potency in order to ensure that the cultivated, pre-harvested hemp is within the state and federal guidelines of no more than 0.3% total THC. 

When asked about her thoughts on the designation, Cynthia Brewer, Vice President of Kaycha Labs said, “I am thrilled that Florida has created a regulatory framework that incorporates both well-defined procedures and high standards.  Everyone benefits – consumers are protected and hemp producers become known for as-advertised, quality product.  All of us at Kaycha are looking forward to working with both and the cultivators and the Department of Plant Industry.”

Chris Martinez, President and Co-Founder of Kaycha Labs, added, “We are excited to be awarded this distinction and are very proud to help usher in the implementation of this important program for our home state.”
