11-Nov-2021

THC-Free Broad Spectrum Distillate and Low-THC compliant broad spectrum distillate are provided to OBX through a distribution partnership with PHC02

Open Book Extracts (OBX), a manufacturer and distributor cannabinoid ingredients and finished products, is now a certified USDA organic manufacturer. The certification was awarded by Where Food Comes From following an evaluation process, which included a review of the company's manufacturing records, analysis of the credentials and credibility of its suppliers to ensure organic compliance throughout the supply chain, and confirmation of cleanliness standards. The certification applies to several existing OBX products, and more can be added with 4-6 weeks lead time.

“Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality and most consistent cannabinoid ingredients and finished products in the industry,” said Dave Neundorfer, OBX CEO. “Through a commitment to clean label initiatives, natural production practices, and significant investment in research and development, OBX has now achieved USDA Organic certification. This gold standard for supply chain integrity delivers timely differentiation and increased consumer trust as the industry expands into consumer product goods and nutraceutical markets.”

THC-Free Broad Spectrum Distillate and Low-THC compliant broad spectrum distillate are provided to OBX through a distribution partnership with PHC02, a specialist in whole plant hemp extraction. The certification builds on the ratings received from ASI Auditors’ April recertification audit for HACCP Based Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for CFR 117 for Food Processing and CFR 111 for Dietary Supplements.

"The USDA Organic Seal is a well-respected identifier for authentic, high quality organic products by consumers, and can provide them with more confidence in the cannabinoid-enabled products they buy,” said Chelsea Pipkin, OBX VP of quality assurance. “This is a major step in the right direction for the hemp industry and the brands we support. It verifies the importance and traceability of organic hemp farming and manufacturing, as well as using other certified organic natural ingredients in finished products."
