WASHINGTON, D.C. – Green America’s Green Business Network is launching an open comment period to collect informed feedback on a new certification standard for hemp-derived CBD (cannabidiol) products that are legally compliant. The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GBN_CBDstandard_opencomment. The comment period will remain open until May 1, 2021.

The draft standard addresses a wide range of social and environmental issues facing CBD businesses and includes two tiers of certification – Standard and Gold.

Once finalized, this new hemp-derived CBD certification standard will play an important role in affirming for consumers that the businesses providing CBD products are operating in accordance with practices that support people and the planet.

The Green Business Network is a national network of small to mid-sized companies that work to integrate strong social and environmental commitments into their business operations. The Network is home to both rising social and eco enterprises and to well-established green businesses. The Network provides the tools, information, and – for certified members – access to consumers to help green businesses thrive in today’s competitive green marketplace.

The Green Business Network certifies businesses across 38 different industry sectors, including apparel, banks and credit unions, cleaning products, housewares, travel and more.
