KSS encourages the industry to implement LucidIDs and CaseIDs to solve ongoing regulatory challenges
OAKLAND, Calif. and NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Kiva Sales and Service (KSS), the industry-leading sales and distribution platform offering dispensaries a complete suite of curated best-in-class cannabis brands, today announced its official partnership with Lucid Green, the intelligent UPC platform transforming the cannabis supply chain, across its portfolio. This commitment solidifies KSS’s mission in advancing the cannabis supply chain through Lucid’s 2D barcode technology and encourages other California stakeholders to follow their lead.
“Lucid Green’s supply chain technology moves our supply chain beyond what even mainstream sectors are currently capable of implementing,” said Brooks Jorgensen, president of Kiva Sales and Service. “Their 2D QR-style barcode platform meets all our needs in order to deliver best-in-class experiences both internally and externally and solves the most pervasive issues California operators often face.”
The advantage of Lucid Green’s technology is that its QR codes are unique for every single unit of product. Individual cannabis-related items that a Lucid Green partner distributes are tagged with an identifying marker that exists nowhere else in the world. This technology also creates a geofence for each individual product, marking where it was made and where it is being sold. If any counterfeit concerns arise, brands can track the location of their hundreds or thousands of unique units. This brings anti-counterfeit security, authentication and confidence that can make or break brand loyalty.
“We are thrilled to be KSS’s preferred supply chain tech partner and expand our stronghold in California,” said Lucid Green CEO Larry Levy. “Together, we aim to set new standards of excellence and transparency for the industry.”
