We prefer the form which is easy to sample. We do not interpret “final form“ to mean packaged form. Final form means no further processing. In many cases, packaging may not even be part of your manufacturing business. Please contact us
if you are unsure
Batches of flower may be packaged, although this is not a common practice. We anticipate that most commercial batches of flower will not be in a packaged form for sampling at the distributor.
For batches of extracts and concentrates, it depends. If your final retail container is a cartridge or syringe, we strongly prefer, and may even require, that your batch NOT be packaged, as it may be impossible for us to open the container to extract a test sample of required size. On the other hand, shatter, rosin and other brittle or flaky extracts are best sampled as container units, such as 1-gram jars, if that is their intended retail packaging.
Batches of edibles, topical products, oils and liquids, almost certainly must be packaged. Edibles should be wrapped or sealed in packaging, primarily for sanitary reasons.
Batches of creams and topical product of sufficiently thick consistency do not necessarily need to be packaged, but we expect that in most cases this type of product will be supplied packaged in small tubes, or similar containers.
Batches of oils, tinctures or liquids must be supplied packaged, in most cases.
