LEXINGTON, Ky. – June 17, 2019 /Canna Newswire/ – Daddy Burt Hemp Co., a Kentucky based CBD company, was awarded the U.S. Hemp Authority’s official certification for hemp processors/manufacturers today. This recognition puts Daddy Burt Hemp Co. among only 20 companies in the world that have been recognized with this prestigious certification. Daddy Burt Hemp Co. is also the youngest company to ever receive the certification, having just launched their online store in April of this year.
The U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Program is the hemp industry’s initiative to develop and enforce the highest standards of quality, safety, and adherence to best practices. The CBD industry is growing rapidly, but consumers are still unsure how to identify trustworthy products. The U.S. Hemp Authority seeks to fix this problem by independently verifying that hemp and CBD companies are following approved manufacturing processes and developing safe products. The program was modeled after federal regulations for safely manufacturing dietary supplements and also incorporated feedback from 20,000 interested parties that the U.S. Hemp Authority reached out to while establishing the certification standards in 2018.
In addition, this voluntary certification program demonstrates the industry’s commitment to working with Congress, regulatory agencies, and law enforcement at a time when the Food & Drug Administration is evaluating how to handle CBD supplement products. In the absence of firm regulations and guidance from Congress and the FDA, the top players in the industry are taking it upon themselves to develop standards that inspire trust in consumers of CBD and hemp products.
Bob Estes, Founder and CEO of Daddy Burt Hemp Co. states, “At Daddy Burt, we are proud to have developed our Plant-To-Product™ System for crafting consistently high-quality products. We track your product from before the CBD-rich hemp seeds are planted to the moment your product is bottled and sealed. To back that up, we use independent third-party testing to verify that our products have accurate concentrations that match what is on the label. Our Plant-To-Product™ System, which goes above and beyond the current legal and safety regulations, put us in a position to be one of the few companies certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority.”
While Daddy Burt Hemp Co. may be the youngest company to ever receive this honor, the brand is deeply rooted in a legacy of Kentucky hemp farming that dates back over 100 years. Daddy Burt Hemp Co. is named after Bob’s great-grandfather, Joe “Daddy Burt” Burton, who was a leader in Kentucky hemp farming during the 1930s and 1940s.
The recognition of the U.S. Hemp Authority is one of the many signs that Daddy Burt Hemp Co. is living up to the legacy of Daddy Burt by always doing the right things and never cutting corners.
