CBD is sensitive to light and air. Your packaging choices should ensure that any CBD product is not exposed to light and air such as amber, green, blue, and UV coated packaging for light and well sealed packaging.
Always clean and sanitize your utensils with hot soapy water and rinse well. You can wipe excess water off or allow it to fully air dry. When you are ready to use any utensils for filling make sure to, spray them with 70% alcohol and wipe off with lint-free paper rolls. Don’t forget to clean and sanitize your working area as well. We recommend having written SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) that include cleaning, sanitizing, as well as the use of hairnets, gloves, and lab coats or aprons when handling products.
There are a couple of methods that are effective to fill your product without the use of a filling machine.
Use a heat proof measuring pitcher with a good spout to hand pour into containers.
Use a Confectionary Stainless Steel Confectionery Funnel similar to this one to dispense melt and pour into prepared containers.
Melt & Pour Directions:
Stovetop method: Heat in a stainless steel pot on a medium-low to medium setting until melted at approximately 130-144 degrees F.
Microwave method: Heat in a pyrex or similar container in 30 second bursts until melted at approximately 130-144 degrees F.
Once melted add essential oil or fragrance oils and pour into jars, or pots.
CBD content in a finished product is expressed in milligrams per milliliter in pourable products and milligrams per milligram in solid products. To determine the CBD content of your finished product divide the milligram content of the bulk base by the number of containers you fill it into. For example if you purchased a bulk base that has 1000 mg of CBD and filled it into ten 120 mL containers each of your finished products would contain 100 mg of CBD. On your label you would write 100 mg/120 mL.
