Charlotte's Web is more than a name; it's a promise. We live and breathe quality to ensure our products are the best we can possibly make. This is our pledge to you -- our customers and our community -- we will consistently produce high-quality products on which you can rely. From cultivation to final product formulation, our passion for excellence translates into everything we do. It's why we're the world's most trusted hemp extract.
Quality products start from the ground up
Our mission to help others motivates us to produce the best hemp products we possibly can. That's why we oversee production from seed to bottle, beginning with superior raw materials. Our hemp is grown and harvested intentionally to utilize all flowering portions of the plant for our products. We extract only the highest quality material, not discarded scraps of stem parts from other industries.
Forgive the pun, but let's get to the root of the issue: healthy soil grow healthy plants. The soils we grow in are tested and cleared for heavy metals and other contaminants prior to planting.
From there, all of our growing practices are natural and sustainable - as beneficial to the earth and environment as they are for our plants and products. While Charlotte's Web is in the process of achieving official USDA Organic Certification, we already practice organic and sustainable cultivation techniques to enhance the overall health of the soil and our crop, which includes:
- No harmful pesticides - instead, we encourage and support natural predators of common hemp pests (an army of viscous ladybugs), which eliminates pesticide use on the farm
- Using cover crops and hand-tending our plants
- Never, ever spraying anything toxic, harmful, or chemically regulated by the EPA
Consistency: from plant to plant, and bottle to bottle
The only way we can create consistent products is by using consistent plant genetics. We work to ensure that every bottle you buy gives you the same benefit, time after time. How? Our proprietary hemp genetics are expertly bred by the Stanley Brothers to optimize growth, health, and phytochemical profiles using scientifically determined inputs. Our team of agronomists and chemists personally monitor our plants in the field throughout the growing season to ensure our final product is of the highest quality possible.
Once we've grown and harvested this bounty, we don't mess with it. You won't find any weird additives or preservatives you can't pronounce in our bottles. All Charlotte's Web products are gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, with no BPA in our containers (or products!).
Procedures and Verifications
Our FDA-registered facility follows the FDA's Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) protocols. This quality system outlines best practices and procedures companies should use to produce dietary supplements. (Want to check them out? These requirements are detailed in The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21 Part 111.)
What does GMP mean?
Receiving certification for Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) means our manufacturing process has achieved all requirements needed to produce a high quality, reproducible, safe product. We have stringent standards and testing protocols in place that monitor our product from start to finish.
First, harvested hemp material is tested for biological contaminants. Next, the hemp is extracted, then tested again. Finally, our finished product is tested for phytochemical content, pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and microbial contamination.
We also went the extra step and voluntarily applied for 3rd party GMP certification to underscore our commitment - and received a 98.9% audit score! Now that's excellence!
And the quality continues…
A lesser known, but equally important quality standard we follow is American Herbal Products Association's (AHPA) contaminant guidelines and specifications for Good Quality. All Charlotte's Web products are compliant with California's Prop 65 regulations, and anything not covered in the above guidelines is compliant with EPA standards.
We are dedicated to achieving the highest standards because the quality of our products effects so many. As more and more people rely on hemp extract for overall wellness, more products come to market. We encourage you to make sure that any product you are considering adheres to high-quality standards for a healthier planet and a healthier you.
