To get to the end-product be it capsules, extract syringes, vape cartridges or any other form, the cannabis extract (oil, distillate or isolate) is mixed in the formulation process step with for example olive oil or terpenes. Here, calculations are done to determine how much extract is needed to reach the target medicinal potency of cannabinoids per dose.
The subsequent packaging and labeling production steps include bottling, filling, capping. Labelling and cartoning. When it comes to medicinal (or recreational) products that will be ingested, an (aseptic) filling machine that meets industry hygiene requirements is crucial. Pharmaceutical standards call for 316L grade stainless steel, PTFE and Viton. The machine needs to meet GMP requirements for sterile manufacturing in the pharma industry and be able to pre-sterilize vials, syringes, or ampoules, ensure safe sealing. Ultrasonic technology for one can help get rid of all kinds of microbe, E.coli, or other bacteria on a vial ampoule or oral liquid bottle in the process.
