OLEO, Inc. Leads CBD Products Industry in Testing and Regulations

SEATTLE, Feb. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- OLEO, Inc., creator of premium CBD drink mixes for fitness recovery, is setting the standard for quality and consistency in CBD products and consumer packaged goods. Rooted in the need for transparency, education and safety for consumers, OLEO triple-tests each batch of OLEO, Inc. products, including OLEO™ drink mixes active ingredient, OleoCBD™, at a third-party laboratory to ensure each serving has at least 25mg of 100% THC-free OleoCBD™. The Certificate of Analysis (COA) for cannabinoid concentration and contaminants in each of these products will always be available for download at http://www.oleolife.com/test-results/, and OLEO, Inc. is determined to set best practices for quality, testing, and transparency in hopes of seeing wider adoption throughout the industry.

In partnership with ProVerde Laboratories, OLEO has worked since 2016 to help develop rigorous analytical testing methods to ensure that CBD concentration is accurately measured and that the CBD products meet food safety protocol, as micro-encapsulation technology is known to require unique sample prep and analytical testing methods. ProVerde Laboratories is widely regarded as a leader in cannabinoid concentration testing in non-standard form factors, and to confirm this OLEO conducted redundant, blind testing with numerous other laboratories and consistently found ProVerde's results to be the most accurate and unbiased.

"CBD beverages are part of a growing market in an unregulated environment, in which many producers have not taken the necessary steps to document the quality of their products," said Dr. Christopher Hudalla, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of ProVerde Laboratories. "ProVerde Laboratories has been proud to work with OLEO in the development and evaluation of their CBD drink mixes, to ensure products are accurately labeled for CBD content, and that they are free from potential contaminants, in an effort to ensure consumer safety."

OLEO™ is also the only CBD company in North America using its own proprietary and patent-pending technology to convert pure CBD oil into a water-soluble powder known as OleoCBD™. This micro-encapsulation technology ensures that OLEO™'s products and Powered by OLEO™ partner products offer double the bioaccessibility of regular CBD, meaning higher amounts of cannabidiol that can be absorbed by the body. The micro-encapsulation process additionally removes any bitter aftertaste, allowing both the flavored and non-flavored drink mixes to taste better than regular CBD products.

OLEO™ drink mixes are available in a variety of flavorless and flavored multi-serving jars and single-serving packets that combine the benefits of 25mg of OleoCBD™ per serving with the power of functional ingredients such as freeze-dried coconut water and real rooibos and black tea, available with or without caffeine to either energize or unwind. All of OLEO™'s drink mixes dissolve quickly in cold or hot water, making them easy to consume at any point throughout the day, helping support full body recovery after an active day. The entire product line not only offers consistent made-in-the-USA quality, but is also guaranteed to be 100% THC-free with zero intoxicating effects. It's hydration without the high.

"Prior to launching our first-of-their-kind drink mixes in 2017, we conducted two years of extensive R&D in developing our patent-pending micro-encapsulation process," said Skyler Bissell, CEO and Co-Founder of OLEO, Inc. "The team at ProVerde was instrumental in developing testing methods that could accurately measure the cannabinoid content inside of our encapsulation matrix. We look forward to working with them to continue pushing the industry forward through test method standardization and the kind of rigorous testing protocol that is standard in all OLEO CBD products."
