Transparency In The CBD Industry
CBD product transparency from seed to shelf production is important for consumers when selecting a brand. A lack of standardized regulation does not specify requirements for production, CBD levels and ingredients, and even packaging labels. Similar to products labeled as nutritional supplements, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations are minimal, according to the Center For Food Safety.
At millie, we offer high-quality products while providing transparency in our ingredients, dosing, and testing. We want customers to feel safe in this innovative, fast-moving CBD industry.
To better assist consumers, there are agencies that created a complete brand rating system that contains a product comparison page which allows you to compare multiple brands across several different areas. This can be helpful when determining which CBD brand to select depending on what you’d like to use it for, how you’d like to consume the CBD, and many other factors. Full transparency allows consumers to make informed decisions when purchasing CBD and takes any question out of the validity of brands and their claims on labels.
One area of concern is hemp plant production, how it is farmed, and what chemicals are used in the process. The Center For Food Safety states that some substances used such as glyphosate, is sprayed on plants, which is a pesticide. It is even classified as a “probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization's International Agency.” It is important to find a CBD brand that implements organic farming practices such as mille does.
After the growing stage, step two is also of concern, depending on how the CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. Most CBD companies use CO2 processing which does not use any solvents or leave residue, but some still use other methods of processing that do. It is important to view brand websites and labels to collect the necessary information.
At mille we pride ourselves on our organically farmed, Colorado grown, third party lab tested line of trusted CBD products. Our CBD is completely pure, free from THC. It contains broad-spectrum hemp oil with naturally-occurring phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and more. The phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil is added with MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil in addition to other flavored natural oils in our orange and mint tinctures for example. Better yet, our CBD uses nanoemulsion technology and is water-soluble. This allows the mini, nano-sized particles to absorb faster with a higher bioavailability rate than traditional CBD brands. Trust our transparency, as we encourage you to research and find the best CBD brand that works for you.
