Quality Control

How can you check whether a CBD Product has the quality you want? Find out what to look for.

The term “Organic” is a widely misused term. People throw it around with proper consideration. This in turn diminishes the companies that truly adheer to organic procedures. This is certainly the case in the CBD market. In order to have truly organic products the entire life cycle of the production of the product would have to be organic certified. From seed to farming to processing to packaging just to address the main considerations. This is next to impossible. 

 

Consumers are increasingly on the hunt for products free of pesticides, herbicides, and other harsh chemicals. But can CBD be USDA Certified Organic? Yes, avid organic consumers can now buy certified organic CBD products. 

USDA Organic certification provides hemp farms, processors, and CBD companies a way to stand out from the competition. It also offers the assurance of safety and high quality to both consumers and retailers. But the process of obtaining certification is not an easy one. Up until a couple of years ago, domestically produced certified USDA organic hemp was not widely available. In anticipation of the Farm Bill being signed into law in 2018, only a few industrial hemp farms, hemp processors, and CBD manufacturers began the process of applying for the certification.‍

 

Products must be: Overseen by a USDA NOP-authorized certifying agent, following all USDA organic regulations. Produced without excluded or prohibited methods, (e.g., genetic engineering, ionizing radiation, or sewage sludge) Produced using allowed substances.

If you make a product and want to claim that it or its ingredients are organic, your final product probably needs to be certified. If you are not certified, you must not make any organic claim on the principal display panel or use the USDA organic seal anywhere on the package. You may only, on the information panel, identify the certified organic ingredients as organic and the percentage of organic ingredients.
