Willow Industries and AirAnswers® Revolutionize the Science Behind Cannabis Cultivation Compliance

North Chicago, IL March 30, 2023 - Willow Industries and AirAnswers® are proud to announce their cutting-edge partnership that will give the cannabis industry expanded insights and solutions to cannabis compliance and quality assurance. The collaboration between Willow Industries, the leader in cannabis kill step and post-harvest decontamination technology, and AirAnswers®, the only commercially available air sampling system, brings cultivators the ability to detect and solve contamination at the source.

Founded in 2015, Willow Industries has paved the way for FDA-like quality standards in the cannabis industry with its patented, ozone-based WillowPure technology and a science team focused on identifying contamination and implementing corrections. The AirAnswers® system which captures, detects, and identifies various biological particles, including molds, fungi, mycotoxins, viruses, and allergens down to 0.1 microns in size, will provide Willow Industries’ science team and their cultivators with additional power to protect their business with actionable insights on the health of their facility.

AirAnswers®, coupled with Willow Industries’ WillowPure technology, marks the advent of a truly exciting growth initiative in today’s commercial cannabis industry.

“We are so excited to collaborate with AirAnswers and add to our arsenal of science-backed compliance resources,” said Jill Ellsworth, founder and CEO of Willow Industries. “Our mission is empowering cultivators to have a long-term stake in the industry, and this will allow us to provide an even deeper understanding of microbial pain points, so we can help solve them.”

“The partnership between AirAnswers and Willow Industries is a perfect example of the Assess-Remediate-Monitor program for maintaining a high-quality indoor air environment, said Jim Koziarz, CEO of AirAnswers. “The combined technologies of our two companies will ensure that cultivators will be able to control the growth environment to protect both their crops and their investment.  As the industry grows and matures, a test and control system like this will be essential.  In the words of Peter Drucker, “What get measured gets managed.”
