01 Mar We Got the Seal of Approval from the U.S. Hemp Authority!
You may have noticed that many of the cannabidiol (CBD) products available in our online shop now carry the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Seal. We’re proud to announce that the U.S. Hemp Authority included our brands in its first round of Certificat Seal approvals, confirming the quality and safety of our hemp and CBD products.
The U.S. Hemp Authority Certification is the first-ever quality certification program for CBD products. To receive the Certified Seal from the U.S. Hemp Authority, companies must have met several stringent industry standards laid out for quality and safety. The newly-created certification is intended to help standardize quality control in the hemp and hemp CBD industry, as well as educate hemp farmers and producers about Food and Drug Administration Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) to guarantee to help ensure that consistent quality is achieved.
Launched in 2019, the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Program is administered by experienced quality assurance and verification professionals from industry-leading food and agricultural companies. Audits for the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Program are performed by Where Food Comes Food, a premier provider of certification and verification services to the U.S. food industry. Only 13 Certification Seals were awarded by the U.S. Hemp Authority in this first round.
HempMeds® was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 — and the first to both make CBD products available in bulk for U.S. consumers and also provide high-quality CBD hemp oil to customers around the world. HempMeds® was also the first-ever company to receive historic federal government import approvals for its CBD products in the nations of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay.
As your trusted CBD source, HempMeds® is proud that many of our CBD products have been awarded the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification because it assures our customers that the products they purchase from us are high quality, safe, and legal.
“Our customers depend on us and trust us to give them the best products on the market,” said HempMeds® President Todd Morrow. “We hope this helps our business partners, wholesale retailers, and customers understand that we will continue to go above and beyond for their well-being.”
U.S. Hemp Authority Certified Products
All HempMeds® CBD products that carry the U.S Hemp Authority Certification Seal meet the program’s stringent quality control guidelines. Our superior CBD oil is made from licensed and registered non-GMO hemp seed grown on a generational family-owned farm in the Netherlands, without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. We use clean supercritical CO2 to safely extract the CBD-rich hemp oil, and test its purity and cannabinoid content three separate times.
Look for the U.S. Hemp Authority seal throughout our store. A selection of the CBD products that have been awarded the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Seal include our line of Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) CBD oil concentrates, our RSHO™ CBD oil capsules, our RSHO™ Liquids (including RSHO-X™), our topical RSHO™ CBD Hemp Oil Salve, our Dixie Botanicals® Kicks CBD edibles in chocolate and sour apple, and many of our CBD tinctures.
