At CBD Ultra we are proud to be one of the few companies that can offer a truly authentic zero THC CBD product. Our hemp is organically grown in the hills of Colorado and our supplier has robust quality systems (cGMP) and manufacturing controls in place to deliver consistent and safe products. Their post-market surveillance and risk management systems are modelled after the latest FDA, CE and ISO pharmaceutical guidelines (ICH Q9 and ISO 14971) and they operate a Class 8 clean room in their manufacturing facility certified to ISO 14644. All suppliers are validated for cGMP compliance in manufacturing methods and practices. This includes rigorous testing for residual solvents, microbes, pesticides, herbicides, metals, and mycotoxins.
All our products are batch tested for contaminants and cannabinoid potency at FDA and EPA accredited 3rd-party laboratories. We protect our customers and distributors by ensuring that: 1) they get what they pay for, and 2) contaminated raw materials never enter our supply chain. Our e-liquids are formulated exclusively with coconut based MCT Oil and feature only natural botanical flavourings and legal active ingredients. Our full-spectrum oils are made with organic, natural, and minimally-processed medicinal hemp components.
Not all Hemp is the same.
Industrial hemp is genetically inferior to medicinal hemp, yet it is defined the same way by the regulatory agencies. Many brands/companies/legal counsel who still believe that hemp-derived CBD must come from overseas to be "fully legal" are not taking into consideration the 2014 US Farm Bill section 7606 which created for the first time since 1937, a federally legal pathway to growing "industrial hemp" once again on American soil. Our supplier conforms entirely to section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill and our "medicinal hemp" strain is registered with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture as "industrial hemp".
As demand for CBD continues to grow, so too will the synthetic forms of CBD crystalline isolate coming out of China and Eastern Europe. CBD buyers need to be cautious when purchasing CBD from overseas, as much of it contains heavy metals, toxins, and/or mysterious chemicals. True quality control can only be guaranteed if all aspects of the supply chain and manufacturing is vertically integrated. We have positioned our company to be the most reliable, most consistent, and most dependable source of the highest grade "medicinal hemp" naturally rich in CBD, along with a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes all working synergistically to improve overall health and well-being. Industrial hemp CBD oil from China and Europe is being flooded into international markets and touted as an effective CBD product, but it is not. Cannabis and its cannabinoids are unique in that the entourage effect of the whole plant's oil extract (including the flowers) is most effective when maintained in its natural formulation, along with synergistic cannabinoids and terpenes, versus isolating one particular part of the plant.
If you are looking for a reliable, dependable, and consistent source of the highest quality, zero THC "medicinal hemp" CBD, we can deliver. Educating consumers about the differences between “hemp” and “cannabis” and also the differences between "medicinal hemp" and "industrial hemp" is one of the biggest challenges we face but once the differences are highlighted it is clear to see why food supplements and nutrients are made from one type of hemp and textiles and industrial products from another.
