Deciding which CBD manufacturers to partner with is one of the most significant decisions that business owners of CBD companies will ever make. From the top-down, each decision that CBD oil manufacturers and suppliers make will ultimately reflect on the business. After all, you’re selling these products to your customers, and they’re trusting you with their health. You want to make sure that everything from the farm to the manufacturing facility remains current with licenses and certificates, and performs third-party lab testing. These are all steps we took when we started Joy Organics.
We were very meticulous about choosing our CBD oil suppliers. Our brand’s reputation depends on their compliance with federal law, use of organic practices, and transparency with seed-to-sale cycle tracking. We’ll discuss the characteristics of good CBD oil manufacturers, certificates of analysis (COAs) you should look for, and how Joy Organics can help your brand become one of the top CBD companies in the market!
CBD Bulk Pricing Benefits
Whether you want to sell Joy Organics products at your store or want to enter the Joy Organics White Label Program, you will need CBD oil to start your business. No matter which industry you’re in, everyone gets a discount when they order in bulk from manufacturers. It’s no different with CBD manufacturers.
CBD Manufacturer vs. CBD Company
There is a large difference between CBD manufacturers and CBD companies. If you’re looking to purchase CBD oil products wholesale or for a private label, then you are a CBD company. You are looking for CBD oil suppliers who can help you realize your career goals.
CBD manufacturers are the ones who have the technology necessary to extract CBD oil from the plant. Depending on the manufacturing facility, they can run multiple operations. Understanding these differences is essential for running your business.
Differences in CBD Oil Manufacturers
Before you get too far into vetting potential CBD oil manufacturers, figure out what type of CBD oil products you want to sell. Then, determine if their manufacturing facility can accommodate your requests.
Understanding their technology and extraction methods is important for your bottom line, as these resources will impact the type of products you sell and how much the CBD oil will cost.
For instance, some companies specialize in full spectrum hemp extracts. That’s where all cannabinoids remain in the formula, including THC.
Other manufacturing facilities are capable of removing THC. 0.0% THC products, like Joy Organics’ line of products, are considered broad or full spectrum. Broad spectrum CBD oil requires cutting-edge technology that isolates phytocannabinoids.
Speaking of isolating, you might just need to browse CBD isolate manufacturers. These CBD oil suppliers provide pure CBD to integrate into your line of products.
CBD Companies vs. CBD Suppliers
If you are selling CBD, you are a CBD company. Therefore, some of the largest CBD manufacturers in the world are also the top CBD companies. However, some CBD manufacturers provide top CBD companies with the phytocannabinoids necessary to make their own unique line of products.
Being this type of CBD company is still a great experience. That’s why you might be better suited joining a Wholesale or White Label Program. Within this type of program, CBD suppliers give you everything you need to run your own CBD business.
You use their products and resources, but it’s your brand name on the bottle. Your CBD company is free to market what you receive from your CBD oil suppliers however you please!
How Joy Organics Chose CBD Manufacturers
Our mission when starting Joy Organics was to help people live healthier and happier lives. You can’t accomplish this goal with subpar CBD oil suppliers. So, we created a list of standards that potential CBD oil manufacturers had to meet. We are so grateful we found the right team to help bring our vision of premium broad and full spectrum hemp extract to life. Here’s what we looked for in CBD manufacturers.
Proof of an Actual Manufacturing Facility
To date, the CBD industry has been largely unregulated. This means that oil can be extracted pretty much anywhere, and no one would know the difference. When researching various CBD manufacturers, make sure that the product they’re offering is made in a legit manufacturing facility rather than in someone’s garage or shed.
Know CBD Manufacturer + Location of Farm
Once we had potential CBD oil suppliers in mind, we looked at where they sourced their hemp.
We asked the following questions:
- Is it grown sustainably, using organic practices?
- Are crops grown in accordance with the highest cultivation standard?
- Is this a U.S. farm or cultivated overseas?
- Do they breed high strains of CBD?
Knowing how the hemp is sourced didn’t just tell us about the plant. It told us about the ethics of the CBD oil suppliers. Even state-of-the-art equipment can’t make up for cutting corners with harvests made from inorganic farm practices.
Seed-to-Sale Cycle Tracking
Every minute of a hemp plant’s life cycle denotes critical moments in CBD production. Some people need specific phytocannabinoids that are present earlier in the plant’s life. Others need some of the terpenes that develop later in the cycle.
The more you know about the plants used to make your product, the more targeted approach you can make in creating products and marketing them. That’s why we only considered farms that had seed-to-sale cycle tracking.
Seed-to-sale cycle tracking follows the plant through these stages:
These tracking systems often contain a combination of written records and software in a single database that can be used by cultivators, processors, manufacturers, transporters, and others involved in the process that provides a thorough history of the product.
Appropriate Regulatory Licenses and Certificates
While CBD has been largely unregulated thus far, there are certain regulatory licenses and proper manufacturing certifications that the best CBD manufacturers will carry. Only the top CBD companies align with these types of manufacturing facilities. We’re no exception!
Now, be careful. Regulatory licenses and certificates will vary from state to state. Trusted CBD manufacturers should be clear about the regulatory licenses they carry.
A few regulatory licenses and certificates to keep an eye out for include:
- International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
- Good Manufacturing Process (GMP)
- Governance and Professional Practice (GPP)
These regulatory licenses and certificates mean that the equipment is in pristine condition. They passed a government inspection and the products they make meet the needs of customers and stakeholders while meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to CBD.
Plus, Joy Organics tinctures and Jarred salves are now USDA certified organic, so you can feel even better about using them.
Certificates of Analysis (COAs)
Each CBD oil batch should be consistent. COAs ensure this quality. These documents provide a thorough breakdown of what is in the hemp extract they’ll be supplying.
Common inclusions on COAs are:
- Phytocannabinoids (CBD, THC, CBDa, CBN, etc.)
- Heavy Metals
Not only do COAs create transparency, but they also ensure that the product contains exactly what it claims. A 2017 study found that almost 70% of CBD products sold online aren’t labeled correctly, having either considerably less or more CBD than advertised. CBD manufacturers should offer the most recent COAs of the products they provide.
