Charlotte’s Web announces “GRAS” status for its cannabis products

The cannabis company receives the “Generally Recognized As Safe” certification by the FDA

The cannabis industry continues to gain ground in the professional landscape with companies following protocols to get their products certified in many areas. Charlotte’s Web Hemp (CNQ: CWEB) is one of the leaders in the production of hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) products, and it just got the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) designation for its full spectrum of hemp extract. This recognition is given by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and it declares the product to be safe to be used in certain foods.

This designation follows stringent regulatory safety guidelines based on well-accepted toxicological principles. This GRAS status means that Charlotte’s Web hemp extracts can be used safely in a wide range of food and beverage preparations. Currently, the extracts are listed as supplements and no extracts will be added to food products until the FDA gives the green light to do so.

CEO Deanie Eisner stated, “At Charlotte’s Web, safety and transparency are paramount to everything we do and obtaining GRAS status for our products is another major step in these efforts. This validation of our products goes a long way to enforcing our base principles and why Charlotte’s Web is known as ‘The world’s most trusted hemp extract.'”

This granted status is a significant endorsement for the quality and safety of Charlotte’s Web products and it speaks loud about the company’s responsible approach throughout the whole process of manufacturing products. Charlotte’s Web is a company that has been focusing on industry innovation in the CBD area and its extracts that naturally contain phytocannabinoids like terpenes, flavonoids and other beneficial hemp compounds besides CBD. It offers through online and land-based markets a wide variety of products such as CBD oil tinctures, CBD capsules, CBD topicals, including a line of CBD pet products.

This is the latest in a recent list of achievements for Charlotte’s Web. The company just launched a new cannabis sciences initiative and, last month, received other certifications for its pet products.
