The acquisition joins two of the leading cannabis testing labs in the U.S.


BOCA RATON, Fla., June 22, 2020, -PRESS RELEASE- ACS Laboratory, a DEA- and AHCA-licensed cannabis testing facility, announced it acquired Botanica Testing Inc., a certified hemp and CBD testing laboratory. Botanica has a portfolio of 500 clients and a reputation for quality that aligns with ACS's standards and ongoing expansion across the U.S.

"Botanica chose ACS as a suitor because they felt the quality of work we perform exceeded any other competitors and they wanted a good home for their existing clients," said Roger Brown, president of ACS Laboratory.

This acquisition expands ACS's multi-state reach in the hemp and CBD market, offering an extensive range of hemp testing options from pre-planting to post-production. As ACS continues to expand its client base, it seeks to extend its footprint through future acquisitions as well.

The Botanica agreement is the first step in a large journey to acquire reputable companies across the United States and have the largest footprint of any cannabis and hemp testing laboratory," said Brown.
