People these days are very knowledgeable of ingredients that are in the food they consume. Terms like “gluten-free,” “non-GMO,” and “vegan” are mainstream because consumers are demanding fresh, quality ingredients as staples of their daily diets. Organically grown foods are a half a billion-dollar industry, which proves, yet again, that knowing what you are putting into your body is important to consumers.
So, if you know everything about the food you eat, do you know what’s in your bottle of CBD?
Our Measure of Quality Control
Before our CBD hits the shelves, at Caprock Farms, we ask ourselves one fundamental question. Would we give this to our own families? Is it ok if our parents, grandparents, and children take our CBD oil? We aren’t satisfied until the answer is a resounding, “YES!” To us, this practice is the highest measure of quality control and helps remind us that you can’t skimp on quality, fresh ingredients.
How can you tell if your CBD has quality ingredients? Look on the bottle and research the company that makes your product by checking out their website. Just because you can find CBD everywhere, doesn’t mean that they’re all good quality.
Here are other considerations to account for when making sure you’re getting a quality product for your store or personal consumption.
Where is The Hemp Grown?
Understanding the quality of CBD begins with knowing where the hemp used in your product was grown. Where it was grown is essential for several reasons and can tell you a lot about quality. Having a crash course on how hemp grows can quickly explain why the origin of your hemp is crucial.
Even if you slept your way through biology class in high school, you know that plants soak up nutrients from the soil in which they grow through their root systems. Plants with deep and elaborate root systems, like hemp, can also soak up contaminants and toxic chemicals. Heavy metals, radioactive elements, pesticides, herbicides, and fuel contaminants are just a few things that can be passed along to unknowing consumers, like yourself, if you aren’t careful. This is why the soil that cultivates the hemp you ingest is so important.
USDA Regulations Protect Domestically Grown Hemp
Insisting on buying hemp grown domestically here in the US is the best way for consumers to guarantee the quality of their CBD source. No need to become an expert on soil quality because the United States Department of Agriculture already does that for you. The USDA imposes stringent rules and regulations on American farmers and the land they use to grow their crops.
As a farmer, to grow hemp in the US, you must have first been granted approval from the USDA by obtaining continuing education certifications and various other licenses. They must register their land, perform soil tests, and can only plant USDA approved seeds. The USDA then monitors the growing process with regular inspections. Before harvesting a hemp crop, it must be inspected and lab-tested to ensure that it contains less than 0.3% THC. If the USDA detects an amount higher than 0.3% at the time of inspection, the USDA inspector will order on-site destruction of the entire field.
Crops meeting the correct requirements get the USDA seal of approval. Once you receive approval, it is time to harvest the hemp crop. Then it is sent down the line to consumers like you. This system of safeguards ensures a quality product, unlike the unregulated hemp grown in other countries.
