Sponsored Content 17 May 2019



Whether you are a regular user of CBD products, or a stock trader looking to buy marijuana stocks, or just a bored human with internet access. One thing we’re 100% sure of, though, is that these four facts are something you’d want to keep in your mind’s attic.

1. Manufacturers Don’t Use Just Any Plants

The CBD industry is a bit complicated because of the nature of cannabis. The species are not only divided into Hemp and Marijuana, but it is divided on a deeper level. Both types of plants contain two things CBD (the one with the therapeutic effects) and THC (the one that gets you high). While the purity of CBD products goes back to the manufacturer, the trend is to use plants with high CBD concentration and a low percentage of THC. Some companies invest in artificial selection methods to enhance their plants by increasing CBD amounts and lowering THC.

2. There are Types of Manufacturers

As the CBD market grew, it became more complex and advanced. If you have a little knowledge about the manufacturing aspect of business, the chances are that you already know about white label and private label manufacturers. With the increase in demand, certain manufacturing companies started distributing their product among suppliers for resale under their own name. Others, became private manufacturers. These started developing their own product and selling to exclusive outlets, which then get to make their own adjustments. The best part is that now, reliable, private label CBD manufacturers use 100% hemp products for a variety of things on the market, from supplements to cosmetics, and go the extra mile of being cruelty free as well.

3. Rigorous Testing is a Must for All CBD Products

Now, you may think that it is a standard process for all CBD products but, it isn’t. Each manufacturer has their own thorough testing methods in order to guarantee high quality products. The reason why the process is so important is because cannabis is a bioaccumulator. In other words, while growing, the plant absorbs whatever is on the ground, so if the soil is contaminated, chances are that the product is, too. In fact, you have the right to ask your supplier about the party responsible for their testing procedure.

4. The Manufacturing Process is Under a Constant Risk

Like we’ve said before, cannabis is a bioaccumulator which makes it a challenging seed to plant. In contrast with regularly planted crops; like, corn, potatoes and wheat, cannabis are a relatively new crop. With the former crops, professionals have developed formulas and guidelines to produce guaranteed successful results. However, being a new crop, experts are still getting the hang of it which means that failed attempts are not uncommon. To cut it short, a good manufacturing technique is useless when combined with a bad crop yield.

So, there you have it. Four facts about CBD manufacturing that we believe are a must-know. Now, a common question that we are usually faced with is, where is the CBD market headed? Our answer is usually the same. Looking at the way demand is increasing, the amount of money being put into research, as well as, the legal status of cannabis, the future seems bright. In fact, experts are still in anticipation of a boom.
