We’ve all bought a product on impulse, only to receive it, research it and then discover that it may not be the best or safest product available. But when it comes to products intended for your health and wellness, this method can cause more harm than good. That’s why it is important to do your research before purchasing to ensure you’re getting a safe CBD product.
Your Safe CBD Product Checklist
While the FDA continues building comprehensive CBD regulations, industry-leading brands have stepped up and set the precedent for quality CBD products. As such, premium CBD is actually easy to come by if you know where to look and what to look for. Here are the five non-negotiables for a compliant, quality and safe CBD product.
✅ Premium Hemp Grown in the U.S.
When CBD first became popular in the states, many manufacturers were importing their Hemp from European or Asian countries due to the lax regulations and favorable price points. Unfortunately, this common practice left shoppers vulnerable, as these foreign crops were not held to the same standards.
However, the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill allowed U.S. farmers to legally grow Hemp under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). These new regulations outlined processes for testing the land, verifying THC concentrations and disposing of faulty crops to establish consistency and safety for consumers.
Now, sustainably sourced, premium Industrial Hemp is the industry standard for creating safe CBD products. These crops are grown free of harmful pesticides and contain less than 0.3% THC – the federal legal limit. Rest assured that all Hemp Bombs® raw CBD comes with a full-panel Certificate of Analysis (COA) verifying it meets these standards — because we believe good CBD starts with good Hemp.
✅ In-House Manufacturing with Strict Standards
Not all companies have the capacity to complete each step of the manufacturing process in-house, so they have to outsource to several different companies, leaving room for error and less-than-safe CBD products. Instead, find a company that takes a hands-on approach and controls exactly what happens during each step of production.
Manufacturing products in-house is not enough though; these companies should also adhere to current Good Manufacturing Practice
