Why 'Glyphosate Residue Free' is important for CBD brands

Bluebird Botanicals' Chief Marketing Officer talks about the certifications and testing necessary to produce clean hemp-derived CBD products.

As the number of lawsuits against Monsanto continue to grow, there has been much talk about glyphosate, the main active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup–as&nbsp;there should be. Rulings in the initial cases against the giant chemical producer have found that the company&nbsp;failed to warn users of the increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other forms of cancer when using the product over extended periods of time. Concerns have grown as traces of glyphosate have&nbsp;shown up in popular granolas, cereals and other food products.&nbsp;</p><p><img alt="Glyphosate-Residue-Free-inquiries-surge-as-clean-food-movement-gathers-pace.jpg" embed-exclude="" src="https://eu-images.contentstack.com/v3/assets/blt09e5e63517a16184/bltee3e28fec3d90ec1/64e8d8e8dda109bcae22849e/Glyphosate-Residue-Free-inquiries-surge-as-clean-food-movement-gathers-pace.jpg" data-sys-asset-uid="bltee3e28fec3d90ec1" alt="Glyphosate-Residue-Free-inquiries-surge-as-clean-food-movement-gathers-pace.jpg" asset_uid="bltee3e28fec3d90ec1" style="float:left; height:172px; width:180px" />In this video Michael Harinen,&nbsp;Bluebird Botanicals' chief marketing officer, explains why the company thought it was important to attain Glyphosate Residue Free certification for Bluebird's&nbsp;hemp-derived CBD products. He also outlines the other certifications the company is seeking, including organic,&nbsp;and describes how important the testing process is to produce&nbsp;truly clean, prideworthy&nbsp;products.&nbsp;</p>
