The Cornerstone Of Quality, Innovation & Consistency
From our hemp supply to the final packaging, our vertically-integrated extraction process is designed to optimize the safety and consistency of our premium cannabinoid ingredients. That’s why we’ve invested in a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art analytical laboratory built right into our own facilities. Embedded into every step of our process, our laboratory is capable of performing a full array of analytics to ensure product integrity and purity, as well as serving as Palmate’s hub of research and development for our scientists and engineers.
Palmate believes our customers deserve more than a high-quality ingredient. They deserve the confidence that their cannabinoid-infused products meet the most stringent production and safety standards. All of our ingredients and facilities adhere to rigorous requirements and protocols and hold key certifications and accreditations at state and federal levels. Palmate achieved certifications that provide third-party validation of our commitment to the highest standards of food safety and quality.
Brand Reputation through Compliance (BRC) Global Standard is one of the primary certifications recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) - a collaboration of the world's leading food producers, brands, and retailers. Palmate is one of five hemp companies in the US, and the only hemp company in Florida, with a GFSI-recognized certification.
Our GMP certification provides 3rd party verification for procedures and best practices implemented to remove, reduce and control physical, chemical and biological hazards in the processing environment. This assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of products by requiring that manufacturers adequately control manufacturing operations.
The U.S. Hemp Authority® (USHA) Certification Program is the hemp industry's initiative to provide high standards and best practices, giving consumers and retailers confidence in hemp and CBD products.
Each hemp supplier is thoroughly evaluated to ensure agricultural practices meet our strict food safety standards. This is done so by onsite audits, and documentation review. Furthermore, our Chemists analyze the plant genetics, and post-harvest test results with our state-of-the-art, in-house analytical laboratory to determine the hemp material meets our standards.
Analytics & Process Control
The role of our state-of-the-art laboratory doesn’t end at material testing—it's integrated into every single step of our process, optimizing each phase to ultimately produce an ingredient of the highest quality. Our laboratory continually tests the conditions of our hemp storage environment to preserve the potency and integrity of the plant.
Cannabinoids are continuously tested throughout the process ensure optimal potency and minimal loss. Final safety and purity testing of finished ingredients are also performed within our on-site laboratory before further validation by an ISO 17025 certified third-party lab.
Research & Development
Serving our customers as an industry leader doesn’t just mean envisioning the future of cannabinoids—it means helping to shape that future ourselves. The scientists and engineers at our analytical laboratory are continually experimenting and refining our extraction processes to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact. On-site researchers study minor cannabinoids to determine their commercial value and investigate the synthetic and biosynthetic transformation of cannabinoids to enhance their natural properties. But our experts aren’t just confined to the lab bench—they work hand in hand with our clients to develop, test, and refine new cannabinoid-infused products, taking them from prototype to market-ready.
