On February 17, 2021 the state of Colorado adopted a new set of requirements for hemp-derived products. These rules went into effect April 14, 2021 with the testing requirements commencing on July 1, 2021. The newly required tests include residual solvents, micro-organisms as well as an extended list of pesticides.
Botanacor has been following the development of the new rules very closely, and as such, we want to assure you that, we:
- Are actively preparing test methods to accommodate the new requirements.
- Have submitted our request to the CDPHE for lab certification and have been assured that we will be audited as soon as the audit program becomes active.
- Will continue to monitor for any changes to the regulation or timing of these changes and keep you informed.
