Our journey starts with USDA-certified farms that grow high-quality strains of hemp, rich in CBD, and have minor cannabinoids (CBC, CBG, CBN) that give the entourage effect (1). All hemp supplied to Oz Botanical follows strict guidelines that have been set by USDA and the state of Colorado. Our quality personnel, individually audit the farms before every purchase so Oz Botanical has total control over the quality of hemp supplied to us. Oz Botanical gets third-party test results for hemp biomass to ensure biomass has desired potency, consistency, and quality to serve the best way possible to the customers.

Post-Harvest Processing

Supplier farms that have been audited by Oz Botanical and USDA, complete the drying of the hemp plant in a clean environment to our desired moisture levels to prevent yeast and mold contamination. At Oz Botanical, we decarb and grind our whole hemp plant biomass to increase the surface area and get high CBD content. That way we manufacture high-quality CBD products for our customers.

Extraction Process

The USDA-certified whole hemp biomass goes through a CO2 extraction process. Oz Botanical uses supercritical CO2 as a solvent to achieve a pure, effective, high-quality, and safe CBD Oil.

Downstream Purification Process

After extraction, our CBD Oil goes through several purification processes to achieve a pure, unique, and palatable CBD distillate. Oz Botanical CBD distillate is free from residual solvents, pesticides, and other undesirable contaminants.

Raw Material Third-Party Lab Testing

We send our CBD distillate to third-party state-certified laboratories for testing. We test every aspect of our CBD distillate (potency, residual solvents, heavy metals, pesticides, mycotoxins, and microbial). Oz Botanical uses CBD distillate in retail products only when all test results are conforming with state guidelines. The quality of our products and customer expectations are always held at a higher value.

Product Development

As Oz Botanical, we seek to supply our customers with high-quality, consistent products in a flooded CBD market. Ongoing product formulation R&D ensures the highest quality products are made which comply with market trends and customer needs.

Retail Products

When the CBD distillate conforms in every aspect, it is ready to use in our products as an ingredient. We hold high standards when we choose ingredients for our products. All of Oz Botanical’s suppliers and ingredients are vetted to make sure these comply with regulatory guidelines set by USDA and the state of Colorado.

Retail Products Third-Party Lab Testing

The retail products are sent to third-party laboratories for testing. Regulatory guidelines set by USDA and the state are followed. The products are tested for potency, residual solvents, heavy metals, mycotoxins, microbial contaminants, and pesticides.

Release of Product

After the products conform to the testing guidelines and requirements these products are released into the market. The quality department checks every test result in detail and do their inspection before releasing the product. Product quality is a priority at Oz Botanical.
