Five things you should know before hiring a contract manufacturer to infuse your products with CBD, CBG, CBN, and other rare cannabinoids.
If you are looking for a company to manufacture or create natural products infused with CBD, there are some questions you want to ask before moving forward with manufacturing agreements.
These five questions can be critical.
What types of cannabinoids can your manufacturer include?
Cannabinoids are constantly evolving. A few years ago, the most prevalent cannabinoid form was CBD. CBN and CBG soon followed. Today they are mainstays in the cannabinoid world. Sky Nutro has more than twenty cannabinoid types for manufacturing purposes, giving us the ability to manufacture. Our current lineup includes the previously mentioned mainstays plus CBC, CBDa, CBDv, CBGa, THCv, and four types of water-soluble products, CBD and CBG, in powder or liquid form.
How are cannabinoid products tested?
Wholesale cannabinoid products should always come with a certificate of analysis (COA) from a third-party laboratory. Sky Nutro also includes in-house test results to provide an extra layer of analysis.
What is a COA? (Certificate of Analysis)
A COA is a verified document that includes details about the testing lab, analysis of the ingredients, and information about the potency of the cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBG, and CBN. COAs also test for harmful components, including heavy metals, pesticides, bacteria, and mold. USDA guidelines require testing of all cannabinoid products. We strongly discourage purchasing cannabinoid products that do not have a COA.
What are their CBD product manufacturing strengths?
It’s always good to know what types of products a manufacturer has within their capabilities. Product manufacturing is very dependent upon personnel and machinery. Sky Nutro is lucky to have a talented staff well-versed in manufacturing many natural wellness and beauty products, including pectin-based gummies, softgel capsules, tinctures, many types of lotions, balms, creams, serums, and more.
Do they offer product formulation?
Proprietary – private label products can be a difference-maker to your brand. Finding a manufacturer that offers product formulation is a significant upgrade. This process can be timely depending on revisions with samples, but it is time well spent. Sky Nutro offers product formulation for any product we manufacture, including gummies, health & beauty products, tinctures, & more.
