Why do we do Third Party Tests?
As it’s currently a highly unregulated industry, and third party testing isn’t required, the market is flooded with low quality products. Unethical companies are selling products that contain harmful ingredients, which can become harmful to consumers.
However, at MQ By Design, we believe in our product and its high quality standard.
We want to show you our commitment to our Customers and Affiliates by not only processing our premium hemp in a GMP certified facility with supercritical co2 extraction to ensure the highest quality. But also, every batch of CBD product we produce gets sent out to a Certified Hemp Testing Laboratory for third-party testing to ensure 100% transparency to our customers before receiving their products.
