Our “Active” brand products ensures consistent quality and cleanliness for the safety of our customers. Extensive measures such as building an ISO 6 cleanroom, obtaining a CDPHE certification and testing each batch of product, to name a few.
The whole goal of the ISO 6 cleanroom is to reduce the introduction of contaminants and ensure purity of each product through environment control. The room has temperature and humidity controls, HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration, and sanitation processes making it a great environment to manufacture our products compared to other environments that may not be as clean or safe such as basements and garages that other products might be produced in. In addition to the ISO 6 cleanroom, we are CDPHE approved. This means the standards required for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment which includes labelling requirements, deriving products from a recognized industrial hemp program and avoiding health claims among other things.
Beyond making sure our products are manufactured in a clean facility, we also strive to have consistent CBD rich product. We ensure the quality of our products is consistent by not just having third party lab testing, but also by testing every batch. Many companies will cut corners by testing one batch, and use those results for up to a year — when it is highly likely that the subsequent batches will have a varied cannabinoid content. By testing for each batch, we ensure that our products remain constant and reliable. Furthermore, we’ve made these batch results as accessible as possible. Since 2016, each and every product from the Active CBD line has a QR code on it that brings anyone easily to the batch result page.
With consistency and cleanliness in mind, we are mindful about not only where the product is made but how it is made. Our CBD products use supercritical CO₂ extraction methods for extraction — which is one of the cleanest methods possible. Other solvent extractions often leave behind residue, whereas nontoxic supercritical CO₂ extraction leaves little to no residue behind. Not only are our “Active” products are as clean as possible, organic sourcing is used for other ingredients. Many of our products that contain organic ingredients are topicals such as our salve, lotion, lip balm and roll on; though we also use organic ingredients in our coffee and dog treats.
While keeping up with all of these standards, “Active” products always intend to improve the way things are done. Currently, the facility is GMP compliant and is taking strides towards the certification which is set forth by the FDA.
In this world of gas station CBD, “Active” products rise above by extensive self-regulation. Our goal is to always ensure the safety of those consuming our products. no matter the cost to us. The most important thing here is Natural Vines is making sure each and every person who comes to us looking for CBD can find a product that they can feel confident knowing is safe and legitimate.
