Two exciting companies to watch in CBD manufacturing and development are Bluebird Botanicals and Elixinol as they strive to present the best quality products to their consumers. As ethical contributors towards the greater CBD industry, they are well worth watching. Let’s explore the details:
Bluebird Botanical started out in 2012 with the philosophy that their strict sourcing and business practices would leave a minimal impact on the environment, while providing products of the highest quality.
They have partnered with Colorado farmers who grow hemp plants in pristine soils and sustainable greenhouses. Depending on the product to be made, extraction is achieved with environmentally friendly alcohol or by using the CO2 extraction method. That is because some products require broad spectrum concentrate; others use refined oils and some need isolates.
Each product is produced in accordance to Current Good Manufacturing Practices and each batch is tested through independent third party labs. All the certifications are available online for viewing.
Hemp Extract Oil: These come in three variants – Hemp Classic CBD Oil 250+mg (Hemp CBD oil extract& organic hemp seed oil), Hemp Complete 250+ mg (raw & heated cannabidinoids and hemp terpenes), Hemp Signature+250 mg (cannabinoids from hemp, frankincense7black cumin seed oil).
Concentrated CBD Oil: These are the same oils as the above, but are 6x the strength at 1500+mg each.
Hemp CBD Capsules: consist of full-spectrum hemp extract & hemp seed oil.
CBD Isolate: These come in two package sizes of 1gram or 100 grams. The isolate offers 96% – 99.9% pure isolated cannabidiol crystals.
CBD Vape Oil 1000+: The vape oil is available in the same variants as the Hemp Extract Oil and Concentrated CBD Oil – Classic, Complete and Signature
CBD Pet Products: Companion Oil 250mg+ and Companion Capsules 15mg+ are there to meet the needs of all your pets.
Hemp clothing: 60% natural hemp is combined with 40% natural cotton to bring you a t-shirt that breathes.

Every product is researched and developed under strict lab conditions following all the laid out specifications within the industry and mirror the same testing done in the pharmaceutical industry. No product is ever marketed unless it meets the highest standards and every batch of each product is consistent with previous batches and carries certification

Why are these two companies of significance right now?
It all has to do with the new Farm Bill that will position American CBD companies as leaders in the world.
The news of the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill by President Trump brought great elation throughout the CBD industry in the US. This giant stride comes after the first tentative step had been taken by the previous Farm Bill, which only allowed small scale, extremely regulated, experimental farming.
Hemp and its derivatives have now been legalized across all the states in the US, removing the confusion that existed previously. Hemp farmers will now be able to enjoy all the protection that other farmers have enjoyed in the previous decades. These include crop insurance in the event of a natural or man- made disaster, qualifying for benefits and financing. Hemp is one of the few cultivars that do not strain the environment as it needs no pesticides or fertilizers and very little water.
Both growers and manufacturers will now be able to move their products across US state borders legally. This had previously presented a difficult hurdle when each state had different legislation concerning the use and movement of hemp plants and CBD products.
The removal of hemp from the prohibited substance list has changed previous views of the product held by many who didn’t understand its benefits and believed that it was a drug that induced psychoactive changes or a “high”.
Manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers are also rejoicing at these developments. They have also had great difficulties in obtaining finance, doing banking transactions and in attracting investors. There is a whole world of opportunities opening up for many businesses minded people and many see the chance to invest in this industry that is expected to have a global income of $22 billion in a few years time.
The fastest growing area for investments is the on-line wholesale and retail market as it knows no boundaries and has a global reach. Many US companies are offering affiliates the opportunity to take the products to new markets.
Marketing is one of the best ways to achieve a better consumer understanding of the benefits of the products and plenty of opportunities have opened up for marketing professionals to tap into the CBD market.
CBD is indicated for many uses and these include medicinal and for its nutritional value. Consumer education is imperative in order for them to been able to choose the correct product and to reap its benefits. This education to the consumer usually comes from the manufacturers of the products who have informative sites and are continuously seeking innovative and effective ways to include CBD into a healthy lifestyle.
These developers of new products have a great need for scientists to play a more active role now that there are no restrictions. They will be the ones responsible to prove the capabilities of CBD through research and its findings. Most of this knowledge has been around for millennia but forgotten by most in recent years.
The food and beverage industry has looked on with great excitement at all these developments. They are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to seek ways of incorporating CBD into some of their products. Unfortunately, at the moment the FDA has reiterated that it is still illegal to add it to food, but have added that due to the “substantial public and Congressional interest” will lead to them reviewing the matter in the near future. The safety of the consumer, we all agree, does always come first.
