We are very excited to share this news with you...RE Botanicals is the only company to receive a perfect quality score of 100% in their category! 

RE BotanicalsRecently, the Center for Food Safety (CFS), a non-profit public interest group, released a report card evaluating the practices of 40 national hemp oil brands. For each company, CFS evaluated hemp farming practices, including if products had organic certification. It also reviewed processing, testing and auditing methods—all of the behind-the-scenes stuff responsible for making a quality product.

Since hemp oil was made legal in 2018 a flood of products has hit the marketplace without stringent regulations in place.  The FDA has yet to make a formal ruling on requirements to sell hemp oil, emphasizing only that companies not make any “over-the-line claims” about products, such as disease treatment claims like those associated with pharmaceutical drugs. But just because a company isn’t drawing attention to itself with marketing claims, doesn’t mean it’s doing the right thing by way of growing and processing practices.

Out of 40 companies, only 4 received an A grade. Nearly half of the companies received a failing or near failing grade (a D or an F) according to CFS. Only RE Botanicals received a perfect score!

The report evaluated the following factors:

  • Adoption of USDA certified organic or made with organic ingredients certifications
  • Processing method - ethanol/alcohol or CO2
  • 3rd Party Testing for pesticides, heavy metals such as lead, and microbiological contaminants
  • Transparency to consumers about production practices

CBD Scorecard

The report noted that only 6 companies produce primarily USDA certified organic products, yet only 2 out of the 40 evaluated certify that they are glyphosate residue-free (the pesticide used in RoundUp that is a known carcinogen).

But why is glyphosate residue-free certification so important? Because hemp is a bio-accumulator, it absorbs toxins and pesticides from the soil in which it’s grown. This makes both USDA organic and glyphosate residue-free certification crucial when growing hemp, to ensure residual pesticides don’t end up in hemp oil products.

In addition to testing for glyphosate and pesticides, the CFS said producers of hemp oil products also should be testing all products for heavy metals and microbiological contamination, suggesting that companies source non-GMO ethanol and “avoid other GMO ingredients that may be coming soon such as GMO hemp oil produced using synthetic biology.” As a USDA certified organic company all of RE Botanicals' products are free of heavy metals, contamination, and GMOs.

Moms Across America is proud to offer a product from a company that is committed to following the USDA certified organic regulations and providing full transparency through rigorous third-party testing and certifications. They ensure that there are no pesticides, toxins, heavy metals or other contaminants in the soil growing their products or in the products they are producing for you to put in your body.

    Hi Rebecca. We did not create the CBD Scorecard. Check out the link to the Center for Food Safety. You can also apply for MAA Gold Standard. Check out our home page for a link to that program. Thanks!
