At Cannadoca, we always strive to offer our clients products with exceptional quality and traceability, with respect to ingredients, naturalness, potency, taste, storage life and other important criteria that should comply with our highest quality standards.
In doing so, we always keep the environment in focus.
We know that the farming and the final stages of manufacturing CBD cosmetics, plays an important role in developing benefits, purity and quality. Packing sensitive compounds, like CBD and other organic ingredients, is a process too many companies overlook.
As you already know, what makes us special is that we control the entire process from the seed to the final product.
So, why don't other CBD brands use Miron Glass if it's so beneficial?
Based on our research and work, there are mainly 2 reasons. First and foremost is the PRICE. Miron glass costs up to 4 times more than amber glass and up to 10 times more than plastic jars and bottles.
The second reason is the lack of research and extensive due diligence. Also the use of amber or transparent glass for cosmetic products, is well accepted so the incentive to provide high quality packaging glass is generally low.
During all these years, we at Cannadoca have conducted an in-depth research on every aspect of our product. Our team met and spoke with many chemists, bio-physicists and biologists researchers and PhDs.
Our mission is to deliver products to our customers in such a way that this specific quality is fully maintained over a long period of time. Similar packaging materials limit this requirement as they are not sufficiently capable of protecting sensitive products from quality-reducing lighting influences.
MIRON violet glass provides a unique protection maintaining the value of the products at the same high level over a long period of time.
Functionality of Miron violet glass
The sun emits visible and invisible light. The visible spectrum becomes discernable to our eyes when the white light is channeled through a glass prism. At the same time, the light also contains a part that is invisible to our eyes and lies in the radius of electromagnetic wavelengths of infrared and UV-A. The sunlight enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process. Miron violet glass works like a natural filter only allowing the entranced of the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances.
There is a large spectrum of packaging materials available and most of them are permeable to visible light. The following graphics show to which degree the light can penetrate in different materials: Miron violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of violet, the spectral range of UV-A and infrared light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening the durability and effectiveness of the products.
A 2016 study by various experts and institutions found evidence of reduced bacterial and antimicrobial action of ultraviolet light or blue-violet light. Research showed that there was a significant drop in contaminants and that the UV light had antibacterial capabilities.
There are different types of UV light and they are determined by their wavelengths. UVa has a wavelength between 400 nm to 320 nm, UVb between 320 nm to 290 nm, and UVc between 290 nm to 100 nm. In the study, they used 405 nm or UVa for testing antibacterial abilities.
Ultraviolet glass bottles allow 25% – 45% of UVa light to pass through, which explains how it can prevent contamination and bacterial growth. By allowing food and liquids “sunbathe” in UVa light, they will be exposed to high amounts of bio-energy in the safest way possible.
Furthermore, light – and other environmental elements such as water and gases – can give life to even the smallest seed. However, it can also accelerate the growth and maturity of an organism until it decomposes. That is, once a plant or fruit reaches its mature state, the light will contribute to its aging process, thus accelerating its decomposition.
With the ability of blocking visible light, ultraviolet glass, can prolong the shelf life of the food you put in the container.
Ultraviolet light as a disinfectant. One of the various uses of ultraviolet light is water disinfection. Research shows that UV light can kill bacteria and other pathogens by destroying their ability to multiply.
UV light can penetrate the cell wall of the bacteria and cause its molecules to go haywire, which prevents the bacteria from splitting. UV light damages the nucleic acid of harmful pathogens by creating covalent bonds in its DNA. These bonds will prevent DNA replication, and when the bacterium tries to multiply, it will die. Tragic, right? But this protecting light does save you from a lot of dangerous microorganisms like E. coli, cholera, salmonella, poliovirus, hepatitis, and more.
As if that wasn’t enough, UV light can also help disinfect water.
If you care a lot about your environment, you’d definitely want to switch to UV glass bottles. You see, UV light can disinfect water without the potentially harmful chemicals, and without killing the beneficial minerals contained in water.
In fact, it’s one of the most effective and accepted water treatment methods.
Other uses of UV light
Aside from protecting your food and drinks, UV light also has other uses in different industries.
In dentistry, dentists use a dental equipment called dental curing light. The curing light emits an UV light to harden dental cement to hold the braces on the teeth. They also use the light to set tooth fillings made from UV-sensitive resin.
Miron Violet Glass is 100% recyclable!
Miron glass is fully recyclable. Please dispose of it as you would other colored glass. If you’ve ever seen and touched the Miron Glass, you know it’s beautiful. It would be a waste to throw these high quality bottles and jars in the trash. Why not consider reusing them? After the products run out, wash the bottle with hot soapy water and then let it dry.
It can be used as:
- Storage of essential oils, extracts and different dyes that you want to keep fresh and long-lasting.
- Great for storing dry herbs during the winter period, without loss of potency and quality.
