Ryan Randolph has a strong background in science, but in his job as Pitkin County's cannabis-odor monitor, he simply uses his nose.
Twice a week, he inspects the area around the midvalley marijuana-growing facility High Valley Farms, the producer for Aspen's Silverpeak Apothecary pot shop. Walking the perimeter of the facility and along Highway 82, Randolph searches for that skunky smell emitted by the flowering plants that has caused consternation among neighbors. Called terpenes, a strong-smelling class of organic compounds, there isn't yet technology that can accurately tell if they are wafting off cannabis or a spruce tree. So Randolph puts his nose to the wind and takes a big sniff, using the olfactory tool that comes from millions of years of evolution. "I use just [my] good old-fashioned sense of smell," he said in an email interview earlier this week. Upon hearing that High Valley Farms was looking for a third-party monitor, Randolph approached Silverpeak, offered his services, and began working as a consultant. His services are paid for by the county, with High Valley Farms reimbursing the government - an agreement made to ensure impartiality. The inspections, which occur unannounced, appear to be working. "Surprisingly, I have not detected odor even once. Moreover, I have not received any complaints through the hotline," Randolph said, referencing a cannabis odor number, 970-279-1375, that High Valley Farms set up. Per his contract with the county, Randolph said his responsibilities are limited to determining if any odor is coming from the farm. He does not go into surrounding neighborhoods to search for the pot odor. The contract is ongoing, and can be terminated with 30 days notice. "If odors exist in surrounding neighborhoods, they could be coming from private residents who are growing for personal use," he said. "Therefore, a positive detection in surrounding neighborhoods could result in significant time and expense hunting down an odor that is not originating from High Valley Farms." While Randolph will make an inspection if a complaint is logged, he said he hasn't received a single complaint via his hotline. An odor is defined as being distinct and persisting for more than 15 seconds, Randolph said. He records the date and time of every inspection and provides the information to the county health department and High Valley Farms management. "I will come out to High Valley Farms and perform a property line inspection, basically walking the property line that is closest to the location the odor was reported," he said. "If I were to detect odor coming from the farm, I would initiate a facility perimeter inspection." Randolph said he would also, if necessary, access the roof to determine if a detectable odor is originating from a specific location at the facility. A positive detection must be reported to the county within 24 hours, he added. Randolph earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in 2001, and worked for Pyxant Labs for five years. At Pyxant, he said he "developed and validated" analytical methods for determining pesticide residues in agricultural crops. Randolph then moved to North Carolina and worked at the biotech firm Scynexis. There, he studied how drugs are absorbed, distributed, metabolized and excreted from the body. "In the pharmaceutical world, this is commonly referred to as drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics," he said. Randolph earned his master's degree in clinical research from Campbell University. In May, he moved to Glenwood Springs to join GreenHill Laboratories, a cannabis-testing lab in Carbondale. "I am in charge of establishing the analytical chemistry platform at GreenHill," he said via email. "My work enabled us to receive certification in November from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to provide potency testing services." GreenHill, founded in 2014, is also certified to provide microbial contaminant testing. According to its website, GreenHill tests for bacteria, thermophiles, psychotropics, coliform/E.coli, staphylococcus, molds, yeasts, pH, and moisture percentage. Utilizing his expertise with analytical chemistry, Randolph also operates a consulting business, SoundScientific, LLC, for the cannabis industry. Randolph said it's important that both the county and Holland Hills residents are assured potential odors are being monitored, adding that transparency is key to his position. "My objective is to determine if the odor I smelled along the highway is or is not originating from the [High Valley Farms] facility," he said.
