What is a Batch Number?
A Batch Number is a number assigned that references the finished product. The batch number should include, usually in the form of a combination of alpha-numeric codes, the type of product, its active ingredient’s classification, the strength and/or size, the manufacturing date, and any additional differentiating items such as flavor, shape, etc.
Batch numbers combined with lot numbers should give you a chain of custody all the way back to the plant it originally came from. Tracking is a vital part of manufacturing and is extremely important should there be an issue with a batch of products and you needed to track them down. However, the main purpose of a Batch Number used on Hemp Products is a reference number to match to the Certificate of Analysis for that product. All Batch Numbers and Lot Numbers are listed on the COAs.
What is a Lot Number?
A Lot Number is a number assigned that references the active ingredient used to manufacture the product. Usually this is in the form of a concentrated oil or a pure powder. These concentrated extracts should always be Full Panel Lab Tested prior to formulation to ensure that it has no contaminants and verify the concentration of your active ingredient in order to properly formulate the product you’re making to its specific Strength advertised on the Label (aka – the “Label Claim”).
Lot numbers are part of a tracking system, and when done correctly with all the necessary information, they play a vital role in the event of a recall. Lot numbers are most commonly used as a reference to the COA for that product. All Batch Numbers and Lot Numbers are listed on the COAs.
Hemp Lively leads the industry in Lab Testing
At Hemp Lively, we do things a little different by going above and beyond the requirements to ensure you buy the best Hemp product possible. A prime example is in our lab testing procedures. We run multiple rounds of rigorous lab tests at both the beginning of the process and just before we ship the product off to you.
Hemp Lively’s Lab Testing Process explained
When an extract enters our facility, it will either come with a certified Certificate of Analysis or we will immediately send it to a 170025 Certified Lab for Testing. These tests are then logged and used for formulating your product. Once the product has been manufactured, prior to releasing it to the public, it is then retested to ensure the product meets within a small margin of the label claim.
All CBD products such as Whole Plant or Broad Spectrum require full panel lab tests to be completed on either the finished product or on the concentrate used in combination with a Potency test done on the finished product. Some cannabinoid profiles, such as Delta 8 and HHC, due to the inability of contaminant to survive the extraction process only require potency tests. In either case, Hemp Lively will always provide all available finished product COAs in combination with the COA from the extract used in the product and any other pertinent information customers will need.
Did you know that Florida requires more lab tests than any other state in the USA?
Did you know that COAs from Florida labs are better than any other state? How do we know this? First of all, Hemp Lively is a licensed Florida cannabis-infused product manufacturer and both Hemp Lively’s manufacturing facility and the primary 3rd-party lab we use, ACS Laboratories, are located in Florida.
Why Is This EXTREMELY IMPORTANT?
The state of Florida REQUIRES MORE LAB TESTS THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN THE COUNTRY. For example, California tests for 65 pesticides while Colorado only requires testing 13 pesticides. Florida requires 67 different pesticides. If you can pass a full panel lab test in Florida, your products meet safety standards nationwide.
