Before we ship from our manufacturing facility all of our products undergo rigorous testing. Then we use advanced HPLC (HPLC-DAD) equipment, in leading labs, to confirm the results. Besides testing for potency, we also test for microbiological contamination, heavy metals, pesticides, and the unique terpene profile.
To establish the best labs for testing our products, we initially submit multiple samples of the same product, as well as “dummy” samples, to assure stability of the lab’s analysis methods and their ability to identify abnormalities in our products. This also allows us to be sure that they report any abnormalities to us immediately. Good communication and attention to detail is critical to the Elixinol process.
We employ these quality-control measures in every batch of Elixinol product we manufacture. There is never a question of what an individual is receiving when they make a purchase.
We use only hemp-based product testing laboratories that mirror pharmaceutical-industry processes and controls. Through these processes, they’ve solved the common problem of inconsistent test results. Our testing team comes from the pharmaceutical industry, understands the complexity of operating in a cGMP/GLP environment, and has operated in this environment for decades.
Elixinol gives customers and partners greater peace of mind by providing batch and lot numbers for each product. We identify each batch of a product that we manufacture (GMP). This is essential in insuring consistent quality. We provide full transparency to our customers about what they are buying at any given point in time.
It also assures that should an issue arise, we can rapidly perform a recall on that specific batch and know exactly who may be in possession of a product derived from that batch. Lastly, it allows us to communicate clearly with our manufacturing partners so that we can identify any issues that may arise on the manufacturing side of our business.
We publish certificates of analysis for all of our products.
