As CBD products continue to grow in popularity, the FDA continues to figure out how best to regulate these hot items. Dynamic Blending, a Utah-based cosmetic manufacturer, is the first manufacturer in the U.S. to receive certification from the U.S. Hemp Authority for high standards in hemp-related product manufacturing, and the co-founder has some tips for retailers to ensure the CBD merchandise they purchase is good quality.
“During the pandemic, we saw what happens when companies make a product that does not follow good manufacturing practices. Hand sanitizers had numerous recalls, and now the FDA is heavily auditing a lot of these small-time distilleries that had no clue the type of arena they were jumping into. They just saw the dollar signs and that was it,” Gavin Collier, co-founder and principal of Dynamic Blending, said.
Certifications are super important for retailers to look for when sourcing CBD products from brands, according to Collier. There are different standards and quality requirements for different types of manufacturers, and that is why Dynamic Blending partnered with the U.S. Hemp Authority, because they saw the need for higher standards. Indie retailers should also be sure to check a company’s certificate of analysis for each of their products so you know the ingredients that go into each batch, as well as how knowledgeable the manufacturer is of what they are making and the overall quality standards for creating CBD items.
In order to earn trust from your customers, it is super important to know exactly what you are selling to them and how the products are made. Most manufacturers should have quality standards and certificates of analysis right on their website, but when in doubt, give them a call to double check. Independent Retailer has done some of the work for you, so here are some hot and trending CBD merchandise from trustworthy suppliers:
