Testing Certification Process and Standards

HempMedsPX™ is extremely pleased to have achieved the Doctor Trusted™ certification, as it serves as an extension of our rigorous internal testing and certification process. Our process starts with non-GMO seed stock from our government-approved and certified seed bank. The seeds undergo independent testing before being provided to farmers with government permits allowing them to grow our proprietary hemp cultivars.

The plants are then tested once a month for the first three months and then once a week thereafter to maximize omegas, CBD, CBG, CBN and other cannabinoid levels. THC levels are also checked, which is required by law to ensure they do not exceed legal limits. The plants are tested at harvest, pre-oil production, during oil production, and then prior to shipping — all of which is required by law.

PhytoSPHERE Systems further test in the US prior to the filtration and decarboxylation processes, and then again at pre/post manufacturing. Products are then randomly selected for spot checks to round out the quality assurance process.
