Patient Safety Awareness Week (PSAW) is an annual recognition and encouragement for all to learn more about healthcare safety.

This year, we’re excited to observe PSAW 2024 with our partners at Penn Health Group, one of only 25 approved medical marijuana growers/processors in Pennsylvania.

Like CCC, the team at Penn Health Group has made it their mission to support PA medical marijuana patients with safe, effective, and consistent medicine on a routine basis. To do so, they employ innovative techniques to meet the state’s rigorous standards for medical cannabis production.

Cultivating Excellence in Patient Safety and Satisfaction: Innovative Techniques to Meet PA’s Rigorous Standards in Medical Cannabis Production

The team at Penn Health Group takes pride in advancing medical cannabis in Pennsylvania through their innovative techniques and unwavering commitment to quality. PhG’s state-of-the-art facility is one such testament to their dedication to providing PA patients with premium-grade cannabis products that meet the highest standards of purity, potency, and safety.

Techniques and Technologies

Behind every lush, thriving cannabis plant lies a meticulously designed cultivation process. At PhG, they employ cutting-edge techniques and technologies to nurture plants from seed to harvest. Their cultivation experts also adhere to a strict regimen of daily watering and feeding, ensuring that each plant receives the essential nutrients it needs to flourish.

Unlike conventional methods that rely on artificial accelerants, PhG’s team believes in allowing plants to develop at their own pace.Their motto of “only giving the plant what it needs” means a safer, more natural product resulting in superior flavor profiles and cannabinoid content for the patients. 

Giving the plant what it needs also includes time. While some strains grow and flower faster than others, here they allow each strain to fully mature before harvesting. During this period, the plants’ trichomes are regularly viewed under a microscope to view ripeness.

PhG’s automated watering system, managed by their skilled irrigation team, ensures precise hydration levels, promoting optimal growth and vitality. The irrigation team monitors the plants closely, collecting water runoff to ensure the plants are eating and consuming the proper amount of nutrients to fully mature. 

Rigorous Testing and Cleanliness

Quality is paramount in everything the PhG team does as a PA licensed medical grower and processor. That’s why they subject their medical cannabis products to rigorous testing protocols to guarantee their safety and efficacy. 

Pennsylvania’s stringent regulations mandate comprehensive testing for potency, cannabinoids, pesticides, heavy metals, Mycotoxins, residual solvents, and microbial contaminants, ensuring that only the finest-quality products reach patients. Patients will be familiar with these results, which can be found in the Certificate of Analysis, or COA, that is required to be made available for each medical product.

Cleanliness is another patient safety requirement at PhG. Their state-of-the-art facility adheres to the highest standards of sanitation and hygiene, minimizing the risk of cross-contamination and ensuring the purity of their products. From meticulously sterilized cultivation rooms to  advanced air filtration systems, every aspect of PhG’s operation is designed to uphold the integrity of their medical cannabis products.

Environmental Responsibility

As stewards of the environment, PhG also recognizes the importance of sustainable practices in cannabis cultivation. That’s why they prioritize eco-friendly initiatives throughout their operations, minimizing their overall carbon footprint. 

From energy-efficient lighting systems to water-recycling technologies, the team strives to minimize waste and promote environmental sustainability at every opportunity. 

By embracing innovative techniques, adhering to rigorous testing standards, and championing environmental responsibility, Penn Health Group is setting the standard for patient safety in Pennsylvania medical cannabis production.
