RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CONSUMERS
🌿When purchasing CBD hemp products: Look for products that are USDA Certified Organic: Products that bear the “USDA Certified Organic” label is the only way to truly know if the product is produced using organic production methods, and grown without pesticides, GMOs, and other chemical inputs. A product can claim it is “Produced with Organic Ingredients” if it contains at least 70% organic ingredients, and the rest produced without GMOs. Note that a number of CBD companies state that their hemp is grown “naturally” or grown using “state of the art” farming.
