Waypoint 1: Superior USDA Certified Organic Farming
Every Ugüd Dog product is created with natural proprietary strains of hemp that are high in CBD. The organic hemp is grown in nutrient-rich soil in the United States on USDA certified organic farms.
The guidelines for farmers are strict, and our farmers use the most modern and state of the art processes. This not only enhances the quality of the proprietary strains, it also means our potency, quality and consistency can not be matched.
Waypoint 2: Hemp Flower Processing
The plants are dried after harvest. After curing, the flowers are removed and stored in a climate controlled environment until they are ready for processing. We separate the leaves, stalks, seeds and stems for use in other downstream applications. The cured flowers are then milled and ground before the extraction process creates our high quality CBD oil.
Waypoint 3: Proprietary Extraction
The milled hemp is USDA certified organic. The extraction process and the purification processes are USDA certified organic. The result is a beautiful honey colored CBD oil which is free of solvents, pesticides, fats, waxes and other undesirable plant compounds.
The USDA certified organic milled hemp goes through a proprietary extraction process which is also USDA organic certified. The extracted oil then goes through a series of USDA organic certified purification processes that produces a beautiful honey colored organic CBD oil free from solvents, pesticides, fats, waxes and other undesirable plant compounds. This beautiful full spectrum oil is what is used to make full spectrum tinctures, and at this stage, contains less than .3% THC.
Waypoint 4: THC Removal
To make the broad spectrum oil, the THC is removed through a chromatography process which is both proprietary and USDA organic certified. The process is expensive, which is why it’s rare to find broad spectrum CBD products which are both authentic and USDA organic certified.
You’ll note in our broad spectrum lab reports, our products contain no detectable (0.0%) THC.
Waypoint 5: Product Development and Manufacturing
We strive to use the highest quality organic ingredients available. As a premium American CBD brand, there is no part of the formulation, ingredients, component sourcing or manufacturing process where we cut corners to save money.
Our production facility is located in Colorado, is registered with the FDA, is USDA certified organic and follows cGMP.
Waypoint 6: Third-Party Lab Testing
We test every batch scrupulously using ISO certified third-party lab testing, setting a benchmark of testing in the industry. The most comprehensive testing available is used for each batch: We test for microbial contamination (E. coli, yeast, mold). We test for potency (ensuring what’s on the label is in the bottle). We test for heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) We test for 60 different pesticides. We test for solvents.
You’ll find on every product, a QR code that links to both the internal lab reports on the raw oil and the third-party testing on the finished product.
