Hi! My name is Andy Kester
I’m the Chief Science Officer for Elevated Softgels and I oversee all product formulation, quality assurance, and subsequently all product testing. Rest assured we always use an accredited third party lab that specializes in testing hemp extract, and the various plant derivatives (cannabinoids, terpenes, flavor profiles, isomers, etc). It’s very important your products meet or exceed your post production potency targets.
I joined Elevated Softgels as a founding member to provide my expertise in quality manufacturing and nutrition. I’ve been formulating with the hemp plant since 2015 and will help you successfully navigate the complexities of the testing process to ensure your products are within legal limits, and at your defined strength.
Leverage my Masters degree in Nutritional Sciences and Doctorate in Public Health (Coursework completed, dissertation in progress) to keep you safe and compliant. Also happy to make formulation suggestions. For the curious, I had to change my dissertation thesis due to a conflict of interest with owning a hemp company but expect to wrap up my PhD dissertation in the near future.
