A new app launched this week that aims to provider retailers and consumers access to product details to help them make informed choices.

The Figr Budtender app is described as an “interactive tool intended for budtenders and consumers”

The app displays data drawn from the traceability platform, SENTRI SM, to provide users with information about their product throughout its supply chain journey, a press release notes.

“Transparency in the industry means providing consumers with the knowledge they need and deserve to make informed decisions,” said Harvey Carroll, President of Figr. “Figr is focused on providing this transparency through its various services, including the Budtender app.”

By scanning the Figr logo and inputting the product lot number on the packaging, app users can access product details including where and when the cannabis plant used to create a product was harvested, how long the specific cannabis was cured and its terpene and cannabinoid profile.

The app expands upon the company’s web track-and-trace application, which has been available since October 17, 2018, on Figr’s website (www.figr.com/quality).

“The Budtender app permits retailer and consumer access to information about the source of products and how they are processed. With access to this information, app users can begin to educate themselves on what products they prefer,” said Zack Grossman, Marketing Director, Figr.
