Las Vegas, NV—CV Sciences, Inc., announced in a press release that it has been certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority Guidance Program.
The program was developed by the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, and is designed to educate hemp farmers and hemp finished product producers in FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practices and Good Agricultural Practices to ensure that consistent quality is achieved. The press release states that this certification illustrates CV Sciences’ robust quality management system throughout its supply chain, and gives law enforcement officials certainty that its products are not made from genetic strains of marijuana.
The U.S. Hemp Roundtable, launched in early 2017, is a coalition of over 60 hemp companies representing every part of the product chain and major national grassroots organizations within the industry. Having achieved what the website calls its primary mission—securing the passage of bi-partisan legislation that established hemp as an agricultural commodity—it has moved on to ensuring the long-term viability of the industry, through lobbying efforts in states to fully legalize hemp and hemp-derived products, and coordination with the U.S. Hemp Authority certification program.
Michael J. Mona, III, co-founder, president, and COO at CV Sciences, said in the release, “Consumer interest and demand for industrial hemp products is growing rapidly and we believe consumers are entitled to full transparency with respect to product quality, safety, and consistency. By completing the U.S. Hemp Authority’s rigorous certification process, consumers can continue to trust in CV Sciences’ commitment to the highest operating and production standards. This landmark certification provides additional assurance to our customers that we are focused on continuous improvement, customer trust, and satisfaction.”
The company is now licensed to use the Certified Seal of the U.S. Hemp Authority in its product labeling, marketing and advertising.
