When the Farm Bill was signed in December 2018, it opened the way to the legal production and sale of Hemp Oil across all 50 states. As long as Hemp Oil is produced from industrial Hemp and includes under 0.3% of THC, the manufacturing and sale of Hemp Oil and CBD products are legal.
In response, many companies, CBD producers, and manufacturers stepped in to cover the increasing demand for CBD-rich products.
However, the opening up of the market was not followed by the institution of a regulatory body that would oversee this rapidly expanding market.
The FDA does not supervise the CBD market because Hemp Oil does not qualify as a medicine but as a food supplement. Likewise, no institutional body defines crucial information like recommended daily doses. Consumers are left in the dark to choose which Hemp Oil product to purchase and what daily dose is recommended for their body and health aims.
Even so, the market has been flooded with products derived from Hemp Oil like CBD edibles, CBD gummies, CBD tinctures, CBD oils, and even CBD chocolates. How can consumers discern the quality, purity, potency, and efficacy of the Hemp Oil products they purchase?
This is why the US Hemp Authority Certification is so important—and coveted.
The US Hemp Authority audits a company’s entire production process: Hemp growers are inspected for their growing methods. Hemp Oil manufacturers are scrutinized for their manufacturing practices and the quality of their products among other crucial requirements. The entire process, from farming to bottling, must be flawless to pass the audit.
What Is the US Hemp Authority Certification?
The US Hemp Authority Certification was created by the Hemp industry to help customers choose reputable, trustworthy, and dependable Hemp Oil producers. It is crucial for the benefit of both consumers and producers as it creates a trusting relationship based on high standards and excellent practices.
The audit is performed by a third party called FoodChain ID, who are the ones examining Hemp growers and Hemp producers to evaluate the trustworthiness and quality of their products.
Once certified, Hemp producers stand out from the competition and inspire confidence in customers who know that the Hemp Oil product they are buying is safe and has been tested and certified.
What Does the US Hemp Authority Certification Entail?
The foremost issue the Hemp Authority examines is the purity of the Hemp Oil product. It shouldn’t contain pesticides and heavy metals and should always contain less than 0.3% of THC, the psychotropic compound of cannabis that is responsible for the sense of “high.”
The percentage of THC is crucial for people undergoing drug tests, as tests regularly check for THC among other illegal substances. The legal percentage of 0.3% will be undetected by a drug test but CBD products that contain THC above this threshold could lead to a positive drug test. This is why certification by the US Hemp Authority matters to millions of people.
Likewise, Hemp products must not contain any residual solvents from the extraction process or any biological contaminants such as bacteria and mold.
All in all, the Hemp Authority checks that the Hemp Oil products being sold are safe, correctly labeled, and pure.
The Hemp Authority starts its audit at the very beginning: the plants used to produce Hemp Oil. They have to be industrial Hemp with high CBD content and low THC content. The growing methods are also examined to ensure no pollutants find their way into the Hemp Oil produced.
Here at Synchronicity, we grow our proprietary Hemp plants, CBDRx18, locally in Colorado using sustainable practices.
Processing Hemp requires gentle handling and an extraction process that respects the plant and leaves no residual solvents. The Hemp Authority checks the manufacturing process from infusion to bottling. Every step builds up from the previous one: one mistake in the early stages will accumulate in the next ones.
Synchronicity produces Hemp Oil through LipidTrans™, our patented infusion process. We infuse whole-plant Hemp into coconut oil or MCT and gently hand-press to produce Hemp Oil that is brimming with all of Hemp’s holistic goodness, including cannabinoids and other beneficial botanical ingredients.
Proper labeling is crucial for consumers to know exactly what they are putting in their bodies. The Hemp Authority makes sure that the labels on all products are accurate. Cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids should be mentioned in Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil products, alongside their percentage content.
The CBD percentage is essential for consumers to gauge their dosage. According to the CBD content, people evaluate how many CBD tincture drops to take or how many capsules they will include in their daily diet.
FDA Rules and Regulations
The FDA will not tolerate CBD products making health claims. Only drugs and medicine that have been approved by the FDA can make such claims.
Although there is increasing evidence that Hemp Oil may someday help with inflammation, pain, depression, and anxiety, there is no definitive scientific proof. The FDA has so far only approved a CBD-rich epilepsy drug called Epidiolex. All other Hemp Oil products cannot make health claims or promise healing or mitigation of symptoms of any disease.
Hemp Oil manufacturers who have earned the US Hemp Authority Certification abide by these rules and respect the law and their customers.
The terms used in the world of Hemp Oil can often confuse people.
The Hemp Authority wants to make sure that all products are labeled correctly and use the right terminology.
- Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil refers to a product that includes all the natural compounds found in Hemp. While CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid, Hemp contains over 110 cannabinoids like CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV, CBDA, and more.
- Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil also contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds like flavonoids and terpenes—essential oils that give Hemp products their characteristic earthy aroma.
- Broad-Spectrum Hemp Oil is like Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil but without any THC. Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is put through an extra extraction process that eliminates even minute traces of THC.
- Finally, CBD isolate contains 100% CBD without any of the other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, minerals, or vitamins found in Hemp.
Hemp’s natural ingredients work together to improve your wellbeing and offer you an overall feeling of wellness. Here at Synchronicity, all our products are made with Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil. We believe that the synergy of Hemp’s botanical compounds creates a holistic product that is superior to just CBD—what we call the True Entourage Effect™.
