Whether you are a retailer, manufacturer or supplier of CBD products we have all seen a recent increased growth of the CBD industry in the UK which has led to a rise in the demand for high-quality testing and batch certification. With PhytoVista being a leading service provider, it is setting the Gold standard for testing in the CBD and cannabis industry. PhytoVista has state-of-the-art equipment to enable testing for pesticides, microbial contamination, heavy metals, residual solvents, cannabinoids, terpenes and mycotoxins. The laboratory is able to certify that products and samples conform to regulatory standards. So why test with PhytoVista? We are based in the UK which means you don’t need to send your samples abroad to European laboratories. Turnaround time is usually five days or less. We operate to GLP standards and we are working to be ISO 17025 accredited this year which ensures the highest quality results. We also understand and monitor regulations in the food and beverage, cosmetics and vaping industries so we can best advise our customers looking to test their products and enter into the UK CBD market. Nick Clarkson, Chief Scientific Officer, says; “While we are in an unregulated environment it is essential to batch test not only your raw materials but also your finished products. The demand for CBD products is increasing and with it is in an increase in the number of suppliers, and whilst quality is important to many of them, as with any booming industry, there are unscrupulous players operating with little concern for what they contain. Be sure that what you are buying and putting to market is tested by a trustworthy and auditable laboratory. We would like to see the industry continue to grow and for the sake of consumers, regulated like any other.” If you have any questions about testing please get in touch with us via email or phone. You can also find us at the Europe CBD Expo in July where we will be showcasing our services – if you are attending come and chat to us about your testing requirements. 66 | VAPER EXPO SHOWGUIDE
