22, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Trichome Institute of Denver announces the release of the Trichome Assurance Grade, (TAG). The program is the first of its kind to develop a method of systematically, consistently, objectively and accurately judging cannabis quality. (Photo - http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160817/398971 ) The TAG process has rigorous standards that start with expert technicians reviewing each cannabis sample. All TAG technicians have passed Trichome's Level 3 Interpening certification. They utilize Trichome's proprietary system for measuring various cannabis attributes at a macro and microscopic level. A TAG score is created for each cannabis flower sample using weighted classifications based on the Trichome quality calculator. A detailed report is created that lists all observations, macro and micro photos, and an objective numerical value of the sample's quality. The TAG relies on inter-rater reliability to remove subjectivity from the grading process. Trichome is currently working with application developers, wholesale exchanges, cannabis cups, celebrity brands and dispensaries who offer premium TAG flower for sale now.
