US Hemp Authority

What is the US Hemp Authority?

 

As quoted by the US Hemp Authority website:  

     "The U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certification Program is our industry's initiative to provide high standards, best practices and self-regulation, giving confidence to consumers and law enforcement that hemp products are safe, and legal. In an effort funded by the US Hemp Roundtable, and joined by organizations such as the Hemp Industries Association, industry leading firms, top-tier testing laboratories, and quality assessors developed comprehensive guidance for growers and processors of hemp."

In an effort to standardize quality control in the hemp industry post-Farm Bill, the U.S. Hemp Authority launched a certification program to recognize companies that have taken steps to produce safe and accurately labeled hemp-derived products. While some business owners and stakeholders see this as a positive step forward for the newly legal domestic industry, others aren’t so sure

Kight Law Offices’ Rod Kight says several of his clients contacted him following the launch of the U.S. Hemp Authority’s program to air concerns about the organization’s work in the space. Kight authored an open letter, which was signed by 16 other industry stakeholders and formally issued on Feb. 17, 2019, to outline the reasons the group objects to the U.S. Hemp Authority’s Certified Seal program. One such reason is that they do not feel the standards are rigorous enough.  They also feel the certification puts a financial strain on smaller farms. 

CBD Expert's take:  The US Hemp Authority is step in the right direction and we look forward to regulations that are more stringent for growers to ensure the best possible products for all.
