Who is BlueBird Botanical?

At Green Wellness Life, we love the manufacturers we partner with and we are very proud of the products we carry. So much so that we wanted you to know a little more about some of our brands!

Quality in Farming

Bluebird Botanicals, of Louisville, Colorado, is a company that prides itself on both the quality of their CBD products, and their environmental consciousness. In particular, they have three points that all of their products conform to: quality in farming, quality in CBD extraction, and quality in manufacturing. They pride themselves on locally sourcing from Colorado farms, many of which are USDA Organic, and ensuring that their hemp is bred specifically for CBD and terpene content. This local sourcing allows them to closely monitor their product quality, and have a minimal carbon footprint, enabling them to stay true to their environmental mission (and to deliver high-quality products to their customers).

Quality in CBD Extraction

Bluebird Botanicals also stays true to their mission to deliver clean, quality products to their customers while remaining environmentally friendly by extracting their CBD from cannabis flowers and buds using both alcohol and CO2 extraction systems, which differ slightly in regards to how the cannabis flowers react to the process (don’t worry, I’ll cover all of this in a later blog).

Manufacturing

Their manufacturing standards are high, claiming on their website that “Bluebird’s final products are made in accordance with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs). We test every batch using third party labs before delivering to your front door,”. This uncompromising attentiveness to product quality assures customers that they will receive only the finest CBD products from Bluebird.

Knowing what is in our products can be daunting.

As many readers know by now, I hold information in high regard. I think that it is absolutely key to know what you are putting in your body, what it does, and whether or not it is safe.  It is important to know whether or not a product is contaminated with substances that your body does not naturally produce, or your body will reject. I’ve often found myself frustrated with the lack of clear information about foods and supplements that I find in the local grocery store, especially when comparing two similar products.

Like me, I am sure you have asked similar questions like “is this, better than this or “didn’t I read somewhere that this is bad for me?”  How about “What does this long, complex word mean? or “How can I know that this won’t make me sick?” These and many more are the types of questions that run through my head.  There have been many times when I get home, I have had the daunting task of trying to find information on what I have just purchased. Information which is often spread all over the internet. Since I don’t feel like a research project every time I need multivitamins or cereal, I give up and resign myself to hoping that whatever I purchased is safe enough.

CBD & Full Disclosure

Bluebird Botanicals, unlike so many companies, gives full disclosure of all their test results for each batch, along with helpful tips, ingredients, and reviews. These batches are all compiled into a single, easily searched database on their website, and are arranged by date. Even if you aren’t keen to look through the test results (they can be a bit technical), it is reassuring that this company is willing to offer those to the public for oversight; I don’t know of many companies that do that. Period. For our customers security of mind it is our commitment at Green Wellness Life to not only check these test results regularly but to also never sell anything we would not take our selves or give to our families.  We do not post all our products test results on line as the test results of products change with every batch.  However these test results are available for our customers to request at any time!

Bluebird Botanicals committed to fighting for good hemp

This is also a company that is committed to fighting for hemp in the United States. Over the past two years, the founder, Brandon Beatty, and the Bluebird Botanicals team have been heavily involved with the U.S. Hemp Roundtable. This is an organization that Green Wellness life not only believes in but also supports as well. The U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a 501(c)(4) non-profit lobbying organization consisting of dozens of hemp companies and the industry’s major national grassroots organizations. Their mission includes focused lobbying efforts in state capitals to fully legalize hemp and hemp-derived products, facilitating information exchange with law enforcement and federal agency officials, and continued long-term legislative advocacy on other major policy issues.

We look forward to following the progress of this great company, and appreciate the work that they are doing to expand the rights of citizens both in accessing hemp products, and informing consumers about the products that we use.
