Press Release - Minnesota Doctors and Cannabis Technology
DMOG LLC, based in Washington State, is currently working on refinement of separation technologies for individual components in the cannabis plant, including CBD and THC. DMOG LLC is also the first cannabis company in Washington State to sign on with the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW).
Dr. Jon Thompson, the scientific director of Minnesota Medical Solutions said, “The technology we are developing currently in Washington with DMOG LLC will become commonplace in the next few years. We can achieve highly specific separations that will allow us to change the face of cannabis as medicine nationwide”. Dr. Thompson is currently working with Randall Oliver, chief scientist for DMOG. Dr. Thompson continues “currently the DMOG/MinnMed is doing things that have not yet been done on a meaningful scale in this industry in the US, but that are “commonplace” in the pharmaceutical industry. The partnership hopes to bring these technologies to Minnesota and the rest of the nation”. Currently Drs. Kingsley and Thompson are leading Minnesota Medical Solutions, a patient-focused group of healthcare professionals, community leaders and national experts, in an effort to obtain a license to produce medical cannabis in Minnesota.
Randall Oliver, chief scientist for DMOG and one of the founders of Analytical 360, has extensive experience in process development and manufacturing in a compliant manufacturing environment. As part of a team, he was a key player in the development of three pharmaceuticals, two that are currently on the market and one of which is soon to be released.
Dr. Thompson is a well-known separation scientist and CEO of the United Science Corporation based in Minnesota. He has an extensive background in the industry and a PhD in analytic chemistry.
