Uruguay Can has released a new platform built on æternity (a decentralized and scalable blockchain) that allows complete traceability in cultivation of medical cannabis.
The platform development is the result of 8 months’ work carried on by Inmind, and will be put into operation next June and July during the planting phase.
Every phase in the process of cultivation, from the sprout to the packaging will be documented on the platform so the information will be traced on the blockchain, which makes each of these pieces of data, immutable. This technological solution raises the security standards in the process, generating warrantees regarding the quality of the final product making it more valuable and reliable internationally.
“This tool has a great applicability potential, not only for cannabis but for any kind of crops and processes that are enhanced by traceability, transparency and reliability” said PR Director of æternity, Mariana Sanguinetti.
This project´s idea was born in the æternity Innovation Centre at ORT University (Montevideo, URUGUAY) a space that allowed the exchange of knowledge between both institutions, leaded by Enrique Topolansky and Gonzalo Sobral.
Uruguay has established as the Latin American leader in cannabis production for both medical and recreational purposes. It was the first country to legalize the growing, sale and consumption of marijuana on December 2013, after its use became criminalized in the 1930’s. Approximately 80 countries are expected to legalize medical use of cannabis in the near future.
To get the insights on this project and ask Uruguay Can team members questions directly- we invite you to join our SuperheroLeague Broadcast this Friday 29th May 16:30 CEST for a live demo and Q&A.
