About Our Quality Control System
At Bluebird Botanicals, quality comes first. That’s we’ve invested so heavily into our extensive gold standard quality control system.
Both of our manufacturing facilities are registered with the FDA and licensed with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. We manufacture our products following cGMP guidelines (FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices), and in April of 2018 passed a third-party cGMP audit with a 99% rating. For comparison, 70% is a passing score. Eurofins Scientific, a world-renowned laboratory testing organization, conducted the audit. American dietary supplement manufacturers are not required by law to perform third-party manufacturing audits, but only need to undergo this process internally once a year. Bluebird, however, strives to go above and beyond, especially when it comes to quality, safety, and the wellness of our loyal clients.
Every single bottle that leaves our facility has a full set of third-party Certificates of Analysis that are publicly available online. All ingestible and vape products include separate analyses for the cannabinoid profile, potential microbial life, mold, heavy metals, residual solvents, and pesticides/herbicides/insectic
Our batch database is different because all the raw testing data related to each manufactured batch is published online for anyone to peruse. Many companies will only provide an in-house pass/fail sheet, but in the spirit of going above and beyond, we’ve implemented a cutting-edge batch database to provide you with the extra comfort and transparency you deserve.
Our quality control system is not only a gold standard for the hemp industry, but it is a top-notch system for the supplement industry at large. Almost every hemp extract company says it has the best quality products. We’ve all heard it over and over, but how do these companies control, determine and verify that? Consumer reports have revealed that a number of hemp companies falsely label how many cannabinoids are in their products. Many don’t even contain any cannabinoids at all. A number of other cannabis companies are being forced to recall products due to toxic pesticide levels and fungus. With Bluebird’s leading quality control system and transparent batch database, you can rest assured when using our products.
Glyphosate Residue Free: of December 2018, all Bluebird products have been officially certified Glyphosate Residue Free. Bluebird is the first hemp company to have its products certified for this by The Detox Project.
U.S. Hemp Authority: On March 1, 2019, Bluebird earned its U.S. Hemp Authority certificate along with twelve other outstanding hemp companies. The USHA is a Self Regulatory Organization (SRO) designed to provide comfort to consumers and regulators that those who hold the certificate are producing high quality and safe products. Launched in January of 2019, the USHA aims to provide clear guidance to a sometimes murky industry. “Quality assurance and safety are of the highest priority,” insists Marielle Weintraub, Ph.D., President of the U.S. Hemp Authority. “We’re excited to have a hand in helping the hemp industry establish and embrace clear standards, best practices, and self-regulation.”
