The demand for CBD is increasing in the retail market. This means that more small and medium-sized businesses are looking to infuse their products with CBD. It will cost you a lot of time and money to create a product line infused with CBD. There are private and white label CBD manufacturers who can assist you.
A white label CBD manufacturer typically produces both bulk CBD distillates as well as finished products. They oversee the quality of the products from seed to final sale. Partnering with a manufacturer allows you to sell finished products with your logo or buy bulk CBD, CBD distillates, or isolate powders.
It is important that you choose the right CBD manufacturer for your business. Things can get even more confusing if you’re new to CBD. You must do your research, as with all other industries.
You are selling products to your customers when you source from a manufacturer in B2B buyers. The success of your CBD business is heavily dependent on the activities of the CBD manufacturer you will be partnering with. Your customer will trust you to provide quality products. If you make mistakes when choosing the right CBD manufacturer, it can spell doom for your customer.
This short but important post will focus on: What are the characteristics industry-leading CBD manufacturers? What should you look out for when partnering with one? What is compliant in a manufacturer? How do you ensure you get what you paid for? There are many laws that regulate the THC content of CBD products.
Steps to CBD Manufacturing
Before we get into the details of the industry’s top CBD manufacturer, let’s first discuss the steps involved in manufacturing CBD. There are many steps involved in the production of CBD. There are many CBD companies that claim to be CBD manufacturers. But, a company can only be considered vertically integrated if they have full control over and access to all steps of CBD manufacturing.
1. Hemp farming
Quality of the hemp plants and the farming practices greatly influence the final product’s quality. A manufacturer may make sure that all steps are completed smoothly but a poor quality hemp plant can compromise the product’s quality.
It is crucial to practice good farming practices because hemp plants can absorb any toxins that are in the soil. To detect any unwanted toxins, both vertically integrated CBD producers and fully compliant CBD manufacturers conduct lab tests on the hemp plants. We only uses USA-grown hemp for manufacturing CBD and CBD products.
The cultivation methods play an important role in the quality and quantity of hemp plants. A CBD manufacturer sources from hemp growers. You can grow hemp indoors and outdoors, for example. You can grow hemp outdoors with sunlight and less pesticides. Outdoor cultivation also takes less energy than indoor farming. Indoor cultivation is more efficient and can produce beautiful results.
Organic farming is better because it uses fewer pesticides and herbicides. Organic farming is also sustainable for hemp cultivation. CBD Experts Swayer Labs only uses organically grown hemp from the USA to produce our ready-to sell private label CBD products.
This step is quite simple. This refers to how a CBD manufacturer gathers raw hemp and prepares it for extraction. The hemp processing steps vary depending on the product being produced. Some manufacturers use a low-temperature heating system while others dry the raw hemp flowers in the sun. Next, the flowers are ground into a fine powder that can be used to make particles of between 200 and 300 microns.
This step is where CBD manufacturers extract all unwanted compounds, waxes and fats. They use a variety of extraction methods. Different manufacturers use different extraction methods. The most advanced and current extraction method is CO2 extraction, which top-notch companies use more often.
Now, the raw hemp from step 2 will be moved to a PX1 extraction facility or PXP extraction plant. All of the essential terpenes, cannabinoids and other components of the hemp plants have been collected at the end of this step. This is now full-spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum CBD oil is CBD oil with all the other cannabinoids and terpenes, as well as high levels of CBD.
Distillation is a centuries-old method of extracting substances from a liquid mixture through heating and cooling. CBD manufacturers today use the exact same distillation process to produce the best forms of hemp and cannabis products. This allows them to separate cannabinoid compounds from terpenes and flavonoids. They can then turn them into finished products containing CBD, THC, and other Cannabinoids.
5. Third-Party Lab Tests
All CBD manufacturers take the fifth step of testing all their products in an independent lab. Both the manufacturer and the customer can be confident about the product’s quality and consistency by conducting lab tests. A COA (Certificate of Analysis), report is usually attached to products that have passed a laboratory test. The COA report shows the levels of cannabinoids or terpenes in a product. This report also indicates if the product is free of harmful chemicals or pesticides.
How do you choose a CBD manufacturer?
Your goal should be to ensure that your customers receive the best quality products. Subpar products will not help you achieve this goal. It is essential that you choose a CBD manufacturer to partner with. To help you reach your goals, we have created a list of requirements that a manufacturer must meet. These standards and compliance can make your CBD manufacturer a success.
Here are some things to look for before you partner with a CBD manufacturer:
CBD has been an unregulated sector until now. It is impossible to tell the difference between original and substandard products if you don’t do enough research. If you source CBD products from a third-party manufacturer, ensure that they meet industry standards.
You can take a virtual tour of the CBD Experts Swayer Labs manufacturing plant from seed to sale.
After you’ve decided to partner up with a CBD manufacturer it is time to look into the location of the farm and the quality of raw materials. You might ask, “Do they use organic hemp?” Are they following the cultivation standards? Are they sourcing the hemp from other countries or in the USA? Knowing where the hemp is being sourced from can help you feel secure and provide assurance for your customers. It doesn’t matter if a manufacturer cuts corners when it comes to raw hemp.
Tracking the Seed to Sale Cycle
Some phytocannabinoids are found in the earlier stages of the hemp plant’s life cycle. While some essential terpenes appear at a later stage, others develop at a later time. This is why it is important to track the growth of hemp plants.
It is crucial to understand the properties of raw hemp plants used to make your product. This will allow you to offer unique products that address your customers’ needs. There are five stages involved in Seed-to-Sale: Cultivation and Harvest, Extraction, Production. Distribution, and Sales. Vertically integrated CBD manufacturers can keep track of each stage of production and share that information with you.
Look for Regulatory Licenses and Certifications
Even though CBD is not regulated, manufacturers of CBD must obtain manufacturing licenses and certifications. These manufacturing partners are the foundation of top CBD companies.
You should be looking for regulatory licenses and certificates:
- Good Manufacturing Process (GMP).
- FDA Registered
- International Organization for Standardization
These certificates and licenses give you assurance that the CBD manufacturer with whom you will be working is compliant. These certificates and licenses are issued by the government to ensure that their products meet all customer and stakeholder expectations.
Certificate of Analysis (COA), Reports
A certificate of analysis reports confirms the contents of the final product. It also confirms that a product is free of pesticides, solvents or other harmful chemicals. CBD manufacturers that use good manufacturing practices test the quality of their products with a third-party lab test. Each batch is tested and a certificate of analysis for each batch is issued. This ensures that the products are consistent over time.
These are some of the most important things to look at in a COA Report:
- Terpenes in the amount
- CBD, THc CBDv and CBN can be used to increase their potency.
- Prevalence of Pesticides and Molds
Both the manufacturer and bulk customers can use the COA to communicate with each other about product quality and consistency. About 70% of products manufactured in 2017 weren’t correctly labeled. They contained higher amounts of CBD than they claimed. It is therefore important that you ask for the most current COA for any products they offer.

CBD Manufacturers vs. Suppliers vs. Companies
A CBD manufacturer typically extracts CBD oil from hemp plants, and then sells it to the distributor or supplier as wholesale CBD oil. These bulk CBD oils are then sold to CBD oil companies, where they make the final products. Sometimes, the CBD oil distributor, manufacturer, and company can be the same.

Prices for bulk CBD oil vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, depending on the program they offer. CBD Experts is a vertically integrated CBD oil producer. We offer the following programs.
