I essentially am in need of a botanist to sign off saying the very simple/common plants I harvest are indeed the plants I claim them to be.
This would be done over emails with very detailed photos/videos sent.
These emails would be sent sporadically with the bulk of them being between May-October during the common growing season in NE Oregon.
We are a rapidly growing company that is undertaking selling tinctures which requires us to have testing done.
However we can avoid the very costly fee of bio marker testings with a lab with plant matter we gather to confirm identification if a genuine botanist signs off on the identification.
To put how simple our identification needs are into perspective here are a handful of (common names) herbs we would need identification confirmed on:
Saint John's wort
There are more but a vast majority are simple/easily identified plants.
Essentially we have to show the FDA that we know what we harvest is what we harvest when it comes to internal use products and the two options are to pay absurd amounts per plant per every harvest for testing or have a genuine college degree holding botanist sign off on identifications.
I would be willing to pay per identification or per season whichever would work best.
