Through the Productions module's Settings tab, the user can access settings to customize module options to meet the needs of their facility. The Settings tab breaks down into three sub-tabs: Terpenes, Food Allergens, and Cannabis Forms.
The Terpenes sub-tab displays all terpenes saved to the licence holder's system. Terpenes are essential oils present in all plants which contribute to the plant's smell and taste. When a licence holder sends a Bulk Lot sample to an external laboratory for testing, the lab analyzes the sample's terpene profile and includes this information in the Certificate of Analysis–or COA–document.
To Add a New Terpene, click New.
The Food Allergens sub-tab displays all food allergens saved to the user's system. When a licence holder sends a Bulk Lot sample to an external laboratory for testing, among other things the lab tests for the presence of food allergens in the sample.
To Add a New Food Allergen, click New.
The Cannabis Forms sub-tab displays all cannabis forms saved to the user's system. Health Canada dictates that a Bulk Lot of cannabis must be one of Nine Types. These types are very general, so when creating a new Bulk Lot, a user can add specificity by indicating the lot's cannabis form, which is the specific form of cannabis in the lot. For each stage of production, a Processing Technician Creates a Work Order to convert the Bulk Lot from one form to another–for instance, from Bulk Harvest to Bulk Dried.
The seed-to-sale software defines each cannabis form by one of three categories:
- Flowering material is defined by the CRA as "the whole or any part (other than viable seeds) of an inflorescence of a cannabis plant at any stage of development, including the infructescence stage of development. Inflorescence is commonly defined as a combination of the flowers and the ultimate small twigs of the branching system subtending the flowers. This includes what is commonly known in the industry as the bud and the small sugar leaves or other materials (bracts, stems, etc.)"
- Non-flowering material is defined by the CRA as "any part of a cannabis plant other than flowering material, viable seeds and a part of the plant that is a non-viable seed, a mature stalk without any leaf, flower, seed or branch of the plant, fiber derived from a stalk of the plant, and the root or any part of the root of the plant."
- Untracked refers to a cannabis form that does not fit neatly into either of the other two categories.
This is, in part, to satisfy Canada Revenue Agency's monthly reporting requirements. Consult the Cannabis Act to ensure the correct category is selected for each cannabis form.
