CBD-infused products have become a larger part of the medical cannabis landscape, and the U.S. Hemp Authority recently recognized 13 companies who have set exemplary standards in the field of research and development. By assigning seals of approval, the U.S. Hemp Authority has publicly identified some of the companies on the cutting edge in this rapidly growing business space. CBD oils can be found in edible medications, as well as topical applications.

The following companies received the seal:

“Consumers need to be able to tell who the good guys are — who’s doing their best to make sure the product is safe,” Marielle Weintraub, PhD, president of the U.S. Hemp Authority, said.
The U.S. Hemp Authority will further advise brands on using the seal on product packaging and marketing materials.
