CBD You Can Trust: Bluebird Receives U.S. Hemp Authority Certification
by Grace Caucic
In March of 2019, Bluebird Botanicals officially received its U.S. Hemp Authority seal, becoming one of the first 13 hemp companies to do so.
The purpose of this certification is twofold: to educate hemp farmers and processors about good manufacturing practices established by the FDA and good agricultural practices, and to indicate to consumers and law enforcers which hemp products they can trust.
Marielle Weintraub, Ph.D., president of the U.S. Hemp Authority, explained, “As the market for hemp-derived products undergoes rapid growth, it is critically important for us to signal to the world that we intend to act responsibly. Quality assurance and safety must come first, and that’s why we set off on this journey. Creating these standards was a long journey, but after thousands of pages of public and stakeholder input and countless hours of hard work, we are thrilled to announce our first awardees.”
Bluebird Botanicals has long led the industry in quality and transparency. With its unique online batch database, customers can view third-party lab tests for every single product that leaves Bluebird’s facilities. However, as more CBD manufacturers enter the marketplace with untested and potentially unsafe products, Bluebird has recognized the importance of formally certifying its quality through the U.S. Hemp Authority.
