The concept behind Bluebird Botanicals is for the consumer of CBD oil to own their health in three easy steps to feeling better. Since their founding in 2012, Bluebird Botanicals has been a leader in the industry as far as quality is concerned. The choice of blends depends on the consumer, who can choose the correct one according to their needs and have the products shipped directly to their home. The majority of consumers invariably see a difference right away, for others it can take a little longer, but who can expect to see results within 5 – 10 days.
Bluebird believes in consistency and transparency for every bottle sold. Since quality always comes first at Bluebird, they have a gold standard quality control system. This is ensured by heavily investing into making information available about each ingredient and its sourcing to the consumer. Each bottle leaving their facilities has a batch number, which can be verified against a Certificate of Analysis issued by a 3rd-party laboratory. The certification for each batch is easily accessible online. Testing includes a complete cannabinoid profile, analyses for microbial life, mold, heavy metals, residual solvents and pesticides.
American dietary supplement manufacturers are not required to perform 3rd party manufacturing audits, an annual internal process is compulsory, but at Bluebird they feel that it is essential for the wellness of their loyal clients. Besides adhering to the FDA’s good manufacturing practices, both their facilities are registered with the FDA and are licensed with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
Environmentally friendly farmed hemp, specifically bred for its terpene and cannabinoid contents, is grown in partnership with Colorado farmers who ensure that the soils are uncontaminated and that plants start their life in sustainable green houses. Two types of extraction methods are used, the plants are either run through environmentally friendly alcohol or CO2, with some products containing the resultant broad- spectrum concentrate, while others are based on the more refined oils or isolates.
Bluebird products are manufactured with CBD oils extracted from hemp, which is a legal plant and contains low levels of THC. On a dry weight basis, the Cannabis sativa L. plant used has no more than o.3% THC concentration.

Bluebird encourages a “less is more” attitude when starting out with CBD oil products and that they are not to be taken as a treatment or prevention medication. They should be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle and diet and consumers who suspect that they may be ill, should first consult a medical professional. Serving sizes are of course, a matter of individual preference and consumers each tend to have various amounts or frequencies that suit them best.
