Document Security Systems (DSS) is set to introduce DSS platform of anti-counterfeiting technologies and packaging design to members of the global cannabis industry.
The platform will be introduced at MJBizCon, which will be held at the Convention Center in Las Vegas of Nevada from 14 to 16 November.
DSS sales and marketing VP Mike Tobin said: “Cannabis products are quickly going mainstream which means they are fighting the same threats from fraud as other products.
“But with less mature supply chains and limited controls to protect against counterfeiting the threat is even greater for cannabis providers. DSS can assist these companies with supply chain security, anti-counterfeiting tools, and even printing and packaging solutions.”
The Company’s printing and packaging division, Premier Packaging, offers custom structural designs for folding cartons that are tailored for the cannabis market and their product offerings.
Additional competencies include materials management, logistics, converting and inventory management programs; and when coupled with its product authentication technologies, gives DSS a strong value proposition to vertically integrated cannabis brands.
“The cannabis market is also heavily regulated with many states requiring tracking from seed to finished product along with proof that taxes and duties have been paid,” added Tobin. “We can provide companies with a comprehensive, very secure solution starting with a digital signature on the packaging all the way through to consumer engagement, including a blockchain-based option.”
DSS’s customized product authentication solutions are powerful enough to protect against the most sophisticated forms of fraudulent activity, safeguarding brand integrity and value.
Based on the Company’s patented AuthentiGuard technology, any authorized smart phone enables all supply chain personnel and consumers to easily authenticate products, and with the integrated GPS feature, it also has the ability to report diverted goods.
Additional features of AuthentiGuard include:
True 2-factor authentication
Secure tie-in to serialization and codes
Traceability from seed to finished product
Counterfeit resistant, patented technology which is secure against copying, scanning and high-resolution photography
Strong data collection capabilities with unified records management on individual plants & products
