HempFusion Wellness Inc. (TSX:CBD.U) (“HempFusion” or the “Company”), a leading health and wellness CBD company utilizing the power of whole-food hemp nutrition, is pleased to announce that it has received USDA Organic Certification for its HempFusion CBD tinctures ranging in potency from 150mg (5mg per serving) to 1500mg (50mg per serving) of CBD per bottle, making HempFusion one of the first publicly traded CBD companies to achieve such distinction.
“We’ve also expanded our tincture family to include two new SKUs catering to consumers who are looking for more CBD per serving. These new products offer 30 and 50mg of CBD per serving or 900 and 1500mg of CBD per bottle, respectively, providing an even wider variety of choices”
“Our team has worked meticulously to earn USDA Organic Certification, which supports our commitment to providing consumers with premium and differentiated CBD products as well as new potential distribution points,” commented Jason Mitchell, N.D., HempFusion’s Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “This prestigious certification joins our many other compliance markers, further establishing HempFusion as a leader in the premium CBD category.”
HempFusion began the process to certify its tincture as USDA Organic in 2018, as organic products generally represent some of the highest quality and prestigious products on store shelves today.
USDA Organic certification is a rigorous process that involves detailed documentation for every step in the growth, production and manufacturing process, from what is in the soil and how the hemp is grown and extracted, to how the finished products are manufactured and bottled. At all times, the Company is required to demonstrate its ability to meet rigorous organic standards with respect to its CBD tinctures, including undergoing independent facility and documentation audits to both earn and maintain the right to use the USDA Organic seal.
