New Frontier Data Partners with Steep Hill

Washington, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

New Frontier Data, the global cannabis industry authority in intelligence reporting and data analysis, and Steep Hill, the leader in cannabis testing and scientific analytics worldwide, have created a strategic alliance to offer their technology and scientific expertise to governmental agencies in European Union member countries. The New Frontier Data – Steep Hill alliance will focus on assisting local, regional and country level regulators and legislators who are working on (or interested in exploring) the development of the cannabis industry. Both companies have extensive experience with the opportunities and the potential pitfalls regulators have encountered in the United States, Canada, and other countries, and consequently understand the requisite pillars of a safe, healthy and functional cannabis industry. The companies are perfectly aligned to inform, assess, and help lay the foundation for a healthy and responsible global cannabis industry across the E.U. based on vetted and statistically meaningful socio-economic data, combined with accurate cannabis scientific testing data and technologies.

 “Dozens of countries around the globe are considering cannabis decriminalization or legalization, and many in Europe are now assessing establishing a medical market and cannabis-focused scientific research. The strategic relationship between New Frontier Data and Steep Hill – two unbiased and highly experienced third-party information providers – presents stakeholders and policy makers with critical historical data needed to guide and educate their decision making as they explore, or move forward into, the cannabis space,” said New Frontier Data Founder & CEO Giadha Aguirre de Carcer. 

 “In working together in the newly-emerging cannabis market across Europe, the goal of our strategic alliance with New Frontier Data is to improve regulators’ ability to address the demand for medical cannabis throughout Europe, with sound practices that offer transparency, traceability and accountability in newly emerging medical cannabis markets”, said Jmîchaeĺe Keller, CEO of Steep Hill.
