Pioneers of Hemp Supply Chain Compliance

Removing Doubt From Source & Quality

Considering many consumers of cannabis are fighting serious illnesses, it is morally incumbent that product manufacturers source the cleanest and most responsibly manufactured cannabinoids available. It takes experience and knowledge to circumvent the hype and questionable business practices that exist around any industry growing as fast as today’s medical cannabinoid market.

The importance of purity for consumers who may be struggling with a compromised immune system puts a deep level of responsibility on product manufacturers to follow safety standards that mirror the best practices of other high compliance industries. This is especially true when operating in a space like hemp, which has no legitimate regulatory boards for monitoring, validating, and certifying the practices of product manufacturers. This extends to the quality and safety transparency of the ingredients that companies source to develop their products.

First Cannabis Consumer Safety Seal

By utilizing the guidance of academic research and established scientific protocols, we follow clean and sustainable farming practices that apply state-of-the-art analytics and testing procedures for the proper compounding of safe, documented, and effective medicinal cannabis products. These are the fundamentals that make up the CTS Seal.

The icon is only legitimate when accompanied by a product batch number which can be verified on the Cannabis Transparency Standards website with its corresponding company brand.

A COA is Not Compliance

COAs are only one small piece of the compliance puzzle, and when it comes to chain-of-custody, a finished product COA says nothing about the compliance of the raw materials used to make a product. State regulators who require the use of QR-codes that link products to a COA and no other supply chain documentation, are creating a false sense of compliance, only increasing liability exposure for big-box and retailers.

CBD Global product inventories are coded with batch numbers that follow all raw materials from the point of seed purchase, to harvest, and through the manufacturing life cycle. Every checkpoint of compliance and quality control is validated, documented, and made available to the public.
