INTERNATIONAL CBD PRODUCT CERTIFICATION INCLUDES BANNED SUBSTANCES, CANNABINOIDS, CONTAMINANTS, AND COMPLIANCE

Cannabidiol (CBD) has become an incredibly popular ingredient in a variety of consumer products including dietary supplements, cosmetics, and more. A lack of regulations, consistent product quality, and drug testing issues have been concerns for athletes, first responders and general consumers. The Certified CBD program answers all the important questions. It is the first third-party certification for CBD products to include banned substances, cannabinoid testing to verify CBD levels and THC limits, contaminant screening, and an initial audit of manufacturing compliance and quality control. Certified CBD products are some of the best in the industry.

 The BSCG Certified CBD third-party certification increases consumer confidence and trust by ensuring products meet specifications and will not put users at risk of psychoactive effects or positive drug tests from THC. As a complete quality control and compliance solution it offers brands an excellent risk management solution as well. The BSCG Certified CBD product certification approach includes supplier verification, phytocannabinoids and contaminant testing with a daily dose limit applied to THC for drug testing protection, testing for 507+ drugs including 298+ on the WADA Prohibited List and 209+ other pharmaceutical contaminants, and a review of claims and the manufacturing quality control process. Our batch certification reports are available to the public providing full transparency.

The BSCG Certified CBD product certification delivers a marketing solution to brands that wish to showcase the premium quality of their CBD and hemp products and distinguish themselves as leaders in the CBD and hemp product industry. They also offer unparalleled protection to consumers, athletes, first responders and others looking for verified quality and drug testing protection.

THC LIMITS FOR CONSUMER AND DRUG TESTING PROTECTION

THC is the chemical in cannabis that causes psychoactive effects and is a primary target in sport and workplace drug testing programs. Hemp is a form of cannabis bred to be very low in THC with high amounts of CBD. In most of the world for hemp to be legally grown it must test below 0.3% THC in both raw material and any finished product form. We consider the 0.3% THC threshold in our program, but we also go above and beyond that to protect athletes or other consumers from the risk of a positive drug test. We apply a daily dose limit on THC designed to ensure that levels in urine will be well below the THC thresholds used in sport or workplace drug testing. These levels are also well below the level that would lead to any psychoactive effects. The THC limit in the Certified CBD program is designed to protect against psychoactive effects or positive drug tests when products are used as directed.

CBD PRODUCT CERTIFICATION INCREASES CONSUMER CONFIDENCE

When it comes to CBD and hemp products, our third-party certification provides answers to some of the most frequent and important questions from general consumers and athletes or other professionals subject to sport or workplace drug testing.

Is there too much tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) present that might cause unwanted psychoactive effects or a positive drug test?
What is the phytocannabinoid content in a serving, and how much CBD do I really get?
Could my product contain any banned substances in sport, pharmaceutical drugs, or potentially dangerous synthetic cannabinoids?
Are harmful levels of contaminants, such as heavy metals, pesticides, or microbiological agents present?
Are products made according to guidelines for the hemp product industry or good manufacturing practices outlined for the dietary supplement industry?

The BSCG Certified CBD program answers all these key questions with application of a consistent ongoing testing regiment and a rigorous initial review process. Phytocannabinoid profile testing and screening for banned substances in sport, pharmaceutical drugs, and synthetic cannabinoids is done on every batch. Contaminant testing for heavy metals, pesticides, and microbiological agents is done on every tenth batch. Supplier qualification, labels, claims, quality control process and more are evaluated in the initial review process.

A COMPLETE QUALITY CONTROL AND COMPLIANCE SOLUTION FOR BRANDS

BSCG Certified CBD provide brands with a compliance strategy that not only ensures consistency in the final product, but also ensures that suppliers are qualified, and a proper quality control process is in place. BSCG’s rigorous certification process, and the seals that represent it, showcase brands and their products as leaders in the CBD and hemp product industry.

Good manufacturing practices, quality management system, product claims and labels are audited and evaluated as part of the BSCG Certified CBD initial certification process. This is conducted in consideration of both good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements and American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) Recommendations for Regulators and Guidance Policy for the cannabis and hemp product industry. Our focus is in on supplier qualification, raw material quality control and testing, finished product quality control and testing, label compliance, and claims review.
