Pet Releaf Achieves U.S. Hemp Authority Certification

The goal of the certification program is to undertake top-to-bottom third-party audits of a company’s entire manufacturing process.




(PRESS RELEASE) Pet Releaf, an organic CBD and hemp pet product manufacturer, has announced that it is the first pet-only CBD company to achieve U.S. Hemp Authority certification.

The U.S. Hemp Authority certification program is the hemp industry’s initiative to promote high standards, best practices, self-regulation, and to give confidence to consumers and law enforcement that hemp products are safe and legal.

Pet Releaf is the only pet CBD company that sits on the board of directors of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, the group that provided the seed money for this third-party initiative in conjunction with the Hemp Industries Association.

The goal of the certification program is to undertake top-to-bottom third-party audits of a company’s entire manufacturing process, which is overseen by Where Food Comes From.

“As a leader shaping the hemp industry, we have made it our mission to help set the bar on industry standards for safety and quality, particularly as they relate to the overall health of pets,” said Steve Smith, co-founder and president of Pet Releaf. “The intense, hemp-specific audits required to achieve U.S. Hemp Authority Certification are far superior to general supplement certifications because they are overseen by the most knowledgeable hemp experts on the planet. Pet Releaf is honored to be awarded the USHA seal and we strongly encourage pet parents everywhere to demand the USHA certification on any CBD product they give to their companions.”

The USHA seal has three levels of audits — hemp farmers, hemp processors and hemp manufacturers. For a hemp-based product to bear the USHA seal, the company’s farmers, processors and its manufacturing facilities must all pass the audits and achieve the designation. That means that any product bearing the USHA seal has proven safety, traceability, transparency and legality from the time the hemp is planted to the time it appears on a retail shelf.
