USDA Organic CBD, 100% Made in the USA, and so much more. Understanding the differences between these guarantees and more!
When searching the internet, you see terms like:
“Satisfaction Guaranteed” and “3rd Party Tested” all the time. But what do those things mean?
Many vendors and manufacturers brag about offering “satisfaction guaranteed” – but what exactly does that mean? A true Satisfaction Guarantee is “any formal assurance that products can be returned, repaired, or replaced if they do not meet the specified quality.”
But not all guarantees are the same. The MelaMed Guarantee reads “If you use any of our products for 45 days and aren’t completely satisfied, MelaMed will give you a full refund.” That is really substantial!
The true quality of our CBD products means, as stated below, that they are 3rd party tested, 100% natural, organically grown, sustainably packaged, without pesticides, non-GMO and 100% made in the U.S.A.
Our guarantee includes something unique to MelaMed – Education. We know that it’s often difficult to know which CBD products to use and at what dosages. That’s why we’ve trained all our representatives to be “Certified CBD Advisers” (i.e., our associates have been educated & certified by the CBD Training Academy) and they’ll help you to select the best products for your needs and to determine the dosages that would be best for your particular situation.
Of course, we always recommend to first consult with your medical doctor, who presumably has all your latest medical test results, but even doctors aren’t always educated about CBD and for that reason we provide complimentary consultations with our Certified CBD Advisers with the purchase of any product during which you can receive dosage guidance.
Unlike so many other CBD vendors, we don’t issue this guarantee as an empty promise. Instead, this promise encourages us to always do the best we can and to continually do better and better – we strive to provide our customers with high-quality and promise to always refund their money PROMPTLY, if they’re anything less than 100% satisfied.
3rd Party Tested
What exactly does “Third Party Testing” mean? Third-party testing is often listed when a company sends its products to an outside, unbiased (3rd party) lab for testing, to ensure that the products contain exactly what we say they contain. Third Party Testing ensures our products meet or exceed our claims and ensures that what’s on the label is actually what’s in the product.
There are multiple cannabinoids and many of them have different effects. Knowing what’s in the products you buy is important, especially when it’s something you eat or drink and it’s critical to know the effects they have. With 3rd party testing, there’s no bias in testing as there might be in an in-house lab and therefore, the results are guaranteed to be accurate. MelaMed is transparent.
We publish our 3rd-party lab reports to the public to prove that every batch of our CBD products meets or exceeds our exacting standards. Unlike the cheap CBD you’d buy at a gas station or a drug store, you can be confident you’re getting the highest quality CBD every time – that is what it says it is!
“The FDA has considered the term “natural” to mean that nothing artificial or synthetic (including all color additives, regardless of the source) has been included in, or has been added to, a food that would not normally be expected to be in that food “ as found on the FDA site
USDA Organic Certification
Once our hemp is fully grown and ready for harvest, it’s taken to a lab where the extraction process begins. To get the USDA Organic Certification & Designation, MelaMed is required to use specific materials and processes during their CO2 extraction method to extract the CBD from the HEMP. This includes carrier oils and hemp that have already been USDA Organic Certified.
The CO2 method extracts the CBD from the HEMP using Carbon Dioxide under high pressure and fluctuating temperatures, resulting in the cleanest CBD oil, free of impurities and resulting in CBD that preserves the precious minor cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that are still intact.
In this way, the sensitive natural substances remain protected from oxidation, are more durable and cannot become rancid so quickly.” MelaMed is committed to delivering only natural, non-GMO products to you and your family.
Grown Organically and Pesticide Free
Wherever you see this claim, you should know for sure that the products are regulated, verified, and not treated with synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or herbicides at any time, whether during cultivation, processing, or storage.
People need to know that hemp plants are “bioaccumulators”, meaning they are very effective at absorbing heavy metals and other chemical waste from the soil.
“Bioaccumulation is the process by which an organism absorbs material from its surroundings more efficiently than it can be eliminated. Essentially, a bioaccumulator is particularly effective at intaking chemicals, good or bad, but is also unable to expel those chemicals as waste.” This makes it imperative for consumers to pay attention to whether CBD companies source their hemp from certified organic hemp farms.
Sustainable packaging means product packaging that creates a balance between the environment, society and economics. “It’s the development and use of packaging which results in improved sustainability. This involves increased use of life cycle inventory and life cycle assessment to help guide the use of packaging which reduces the environmental impact and ecological footprint.”
MelaMed makes every attempt possible to manufacturer and deliver sustainable packaging and is committed to this on an ongoing basis. It’s one of the pillars of our “sustainable packaging” program.
100% Made in USA
Our entire CBD product development process happens in the USA and all of the CBD products we sell are sourced from individual parts obtained in the USA and in the USA only. “Made in USA” is a label protected by the Federal Trade Commission, or FTC. In order for an item to be called such, according to the FTC’s website, “all or virtually all” means that “all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of US origin.” That is, the product should contain no — or negligible — foreign content.”
When you see this label, you can feel secure in knowing that none of the MelaMed products come from, are sourced from, or processed from any place outside the USA.
What is GMP?
Finally, all MelaMed CBD products proudly bear the GMP designation which means that they are manufactured, grown, harvested, processed, and produced under the insignia of the GMP. GMP represents the “Good Manufacturing Processing”, which is a system that ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to exacting quality standards.
The GMP standard was designed to minimize risk in the pharmaceutical industry, for things that can’t be eliminated through the testing of the product at the end of the manufacturing process. The primary things considered to be risks include unexpected contamination that could cause damage to health or even death and incorrect labels that could result in users getting the wrong product or too much or too little of the product, resulting in possible adverse reactions.
CBD Designations: Why They’re Important
There’s only one reason we’ve gone though all these designations and that’s because we want you to know that we stand behind all of our products and what we say, to the ultimate degree – making sure that each and every promise we make to you is legitimate and can be counted on in every possible way.
It breaks our hearts when we hear someone say they’ve tried CBD and it hasn’t worked because we know that they’ve not received a good, verifiable product or taken too much or too little. Your health is just too important to buy anything on the side of the road or in your local quick store not knowing where the product came from or how it was made.
The difference in cost could be minimal but the difference in results are immense and you are worth the extra effort to ensure you’re getting the best available products that are going to do what has been promised.
