Supporting Product Stewardship for CBD vaping products to build Customer trust
The emerging opportunity
Vaping is the most efficient way to deliver CBD as it increases its bioavailability by 50-70%. Vaping devices heat CBD held in solution until it vaporizes which is inhaled by the user.
Below we’ve outlined why it is hard for companies and customers alike to ensure the quality and safety of their CBD vaping products and showcase why, given our vast experience in this area, we can help to ensure your products are safe, legal and reliable.
The conundrum with CBD vaping products currently on the market
The paradox is that most of the CBD vape devices are made by manufacturers in China, yet hemp, and cannabis-derived CBD products are illegal in China. Therefore, how can brands and customers determine the performance and safety of these products?
To add to this complexity, there are a plethora of CBD vape formulations currently on the market, so how can companies and customers assess that their CBD vape products work efficiently with the variety of these CBD vape formulations?
In addition, there are only a handful of regulations governing CBD vape formulations and devices – for a list of the regulations that are applicable please follow this link to our website.
This must change to protect this emerging category and ensure customers receive the beneficial effects of these products (cannabinoids / terpenes / flavonoids).
We offer a variety of tests to verify the performance and safety of your CBD formulation and device combinations these include:-
Liquid characterisation: Cannabinoid characterisation, metals analysis, PH in liquid, microbiological testing, terpenes quantification, metals analysis, absence of psychoactive cannabinoids, absences of vitamin E acetate, etc.
Device performance: CBD Dose consistency in aerosol, metals in aerosol, absence of harmful thermal degradants in aerosol, EMC testing etc.
Product shelf-life determination (stability studies): We have in-house storage units to facilitate both real-time and accelerated stability tests including pH, CBD assay, etc.
Quality Services: Our in-house European Qualified Person and team can support the design, implementation and auditing of QMS for GMP, ISO 13485 and ISO 9001, Medical Device Risk Management (ISO 17025) etc.
