Commercial Cannibis Awards 2020

10 GHP / Commercial Cannabis Awards 2020 , Dec20412 Based in Beverly, Massachusetts, Herb Tech Pharmaceuticals is a speciality pharmaceutical company focused on the development of Hemp CBD and other botanical extracts. Following its well-deserved success in the Commercial Cannabis Awards 2020, we got in touchwith Laura Stephens to find out more. With its consumer- based focus deriving from its unique history, Herb Tech Pharmaceuticals is committed to delivering superior topical and oral products. Going into further detail, Laura begins by providing us with a brief overview of the firm and offers more insight into its clientele. “The decision that a consumer makes to purchase a health and wellness product is an important one and one that we at Herb Tech Pharma do not take lightly. Naturally, we believe that the consumer is relying on us to produce a product that can safely and effectively address their health and wellness needs. Here at Herb Tech Pharma, our philosophy focuses on the core belief that the gastro-intestinal system is not the target area for the absorption of CBD or botanical extracts. As naturally derived ingredients, the gastro- intestinal system treats CBD and botanicals like food and destroys them. The little that remains must then be absorbed through the stomach lining, pass through the liver, and only then reach general circulation where they travel throughout the body looking for receptors. “Using our topical phase change technology or oral micro mist technology can reduce the stomach issues that some consumers could realise from oral products. Typically, our superiority to others is based on our four pillars which includes advanced formulation science, purity and concentration of CBD and extracts, full panel independent validation to ensure of compliance and transparency, and lastly packaging that both protects the product and aids the consumer with proper dosing. At Herb Tech Pharma, we truly believe formulation science combined with our other product pillars helps ensure that the consumer has the best possible health and wellness experience from a brand that they can trust.” When it comes to recruitment, the firm typically look for candidates who can demonstrate three key skills as Laura goes on to explain. “With our team culture evolving around subject matter expertise, innovation, and passion, we want all of our individual team members to be experts in their fields, to be able to demonstrate innovative problem-solving skills and show a passion for creating unique products.” In such a very competitive industry, remaining at the forefront of emerging developments has proved to be a pivotal factor behind the firm’s success as Laura explains further. “By heavily investing in the development of our current science platforms as well as more advanced biochemical technologies for prescriptive drug applications, we believe this commitment has allowed us to forge our own path as we push the industry to focus more on product quality, innovation and consumer trust.” The outbreak of COVID-19 has further highlighted the lack of understanding retailers and consumers have about white label products. In response to this, Herb Tech Pharma have launched a programme to educate the consumer and retailer on how to read a label as Laura points out. “Since COVID-19 has heightened the public’s focus on health and wellness, consumers and retailers are asking more questions about their products which provides companies like Herb Tech Pharma with an opportunity to educate the consumer and retailer on what distinguishes product quality. By completing our programme, consumers are able to make better, educated product purchasing decisions.” Bringing the interview to a close, Laura signs off by commenting on the firm’s future prospects as we look ahead to 2021 and beyond. “Here at Herb Tech Pharma, we continually invest in our formulation science platforms and intellectual property. In this regard, we have a number of unique and exciting programmes under development that we believe will not only add to our product portfolio but also help further evolve the industry. Moving forward, with such fierce competition in our industry, maintaining our current position will be challenging, but with the efforts of our team and our commitment to innovation there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about our future.” Company: Herb Tech Pharmaceuticals Inc.
