Background:

Cannabidiol (CBD) and hemp, both products derived from the cannabis plant, are becoming increasingly important as potentially valuable products for use in the global agri-food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and consumer products sectors. CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, can be used in edibles, smoked or used topically. Hemp is used to make rope, textiles, clothing, paper, biofuel, hemp seed food products, hemp oil shampoo, soap or body lotion. A major challenge facing CBD and hemp producers is understanding how to build a strong product safety program that reduces the risk of recalls or reputation loss at a critical time in market development. SGS, a world leader in product safety training, auditing and laboratory testing, has developed a range of expert services designed specifically to provide effective, practical and cost-effective solutions to CBD or hemp producers.
