One impact of the recent global pandemic is the realization of how fragile the global product supply chain actually is. Now, more than at any other time in history, we are seeing companies making employee and customer health and safety a paramount concern leading to the implementation of more aggressive sanitization practices.
Deemed as essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, medical cannabis dispensaries are faced with increased demand from patients while simultaneously being tasked with finding ways to implement and enforce more stringent safety measures in the time of social distancing. Some dispensaries have opted for curbside pickup or delivery, while other dispensaries are keeping their doors open, with increased safety measures in place.
What can we do as an industry to prepare for, rather than react to events such as the COVID-19 pandemic? What technologies can we implement to lessen the impact of this virulent pathogen?
At Agrify, we’ve had the health and safety of cannabis dispensaries, grow facilities and testing labs in mind and provide novel ways to address these concerns by offering unique environmental threat mitigation products. We know that there are cannabis-destroying pathogens making their way into cultivation operations, wiping out crops, causing major disruptions and devastation to the cannabis supply chain. What we couldn’t predict was the devastation an airborne virus would have on the global economy.
When the COVID-19 pandemic descended on the world, Agrify quickly pivoted, realizing the true potential of our products for the cannabis industry and beyond. The health and safety of the industry is all encompassing – it’s about the plants, facilities and people behind the businesses.
Our sanitization products include two sustainable options, Bluezone for cleansing air and Enozo for sanitizing surfaces.
Bluezone is technology that was originally developed for the U.S. military and is now incorporated in all aircraft carriers. The Bluezone is air purification technology that utilizes ultraviolet light and ozone to kill pathogens without using any harmful chemicals and without releasing gaseous ozone into the air people breathe. With easy installation that won’t disrupt your operation, Bluezone can sit on a shelf, cart, be hung from a ceiling or attached to a wall. Since this is an air purification product, this product lessens the potential harm of exposing employees to pathogens that could be caught in a filter, like most air filtration products utilize.
Enozo is a refillable, rechargeable spray bottle that utilizes Active Diamond Electrolysis Process Technology which electrically charges water by passing it through a solid diamond plate within the spray head. This gives ordinary tap water the killing efficacy of bleach; the charged water Enozo sprayers produce is capable of killing 99.9% of most harmful bacteria with no dangerous chemicals.
Whether you’re in the cannabis industry or not, we know sanitization is crucial, and we want to help keep your operation and your people as safe as possible. We’re all in this together.
