Direct From the Farm

We partner with farmers in New York and track each plant throughout the process. This allows brands to ensure full transparency and use our brand assets to connect their consumers with the source.

Extraction Partners

We work with fully compliant and quality-focused extractors such as Beak & Skiff to source the purest concentrates to serve as a base in all of our formulations. Any extraction partners are fully vetted through our vendor qualification process and we keep all 3rd party certifications on file.

Contamination is frequently caused by packaging.

We subject each vendor to a strict audit and vetting process and only work directly with manufacturers who have deep experience.

Regulatory Compliance

We know that the constantly changing regulations on the federal and state levels can be frustrating when developing a brand. That's why we have partnered with sister-company Castetter Cannabis Group, a leader in regulatory analysis, to work with our clients to understand the risks and compliance needed to prepare products for sale in any state and export globally. The team at CCG will work with you to ensure labels, packaging, and marketing are in line with any state regulations and not violating FDA guidance.

Third Party Testing 

Our clients receive a complimentary full-panel test result with each production batch that is easy to read and corresponds with our heat applied batch stamp on every unit. 

Pesticides & Heavy metals

We ensure strict organic practices in the field while testing all plant material and each batch of product for pesticides and heavy metals.  

Microbes & mycotoxins

Microbial activity from mold and bacteria can be harmful and lead to adverse reactions. We double check our strict cleaning and cross contamination protocols by testing each lot.  

Cannabinoids

In order to ensure accurate dosing and maximum efficacy, each batch is tested for all cannabinoids to showcase a full profile, critical for proving compliance.  

Residual Solvents

Residual solvents can end up products when the non-compliant extraction facilities rush to finish a job. Our extraction partners put quality first and that's ensured by testing on every batch.
