Garden of Life is expanding its product portfolio.
The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.-based company is launching a CBD line that is THC-Free Certified by Labdoor, which ensures customers that its products are made without psychoactive effects.
“There are a lot of unfamiliar terms and claims out there as more people seek out CBD products, and Labdoor's THC-free certification cuts through the clutter, providing absolute certainty around our products,” Garden of Life president, Brian Ray said. “As the leader in traceable, third-party certified nutrition solutions, we're proud to be first in the industry to partner with Labdoor in bringing this line to market.”
Created with Broad Spectrum Whole Hemp Extract, the Garden of Life Dr. Formulated CBD formulas also contain a naturally occurring complex of cannabinoids, terpenes and fatty acids without THC.
In addition, the line also is Certified Non-GMO and gluten-free, the company said.
"Labdoor certifies each lot of Garden of Life's CBD ingredients and finished products to ensure supply chain security," Neil Thanedar, the chief executive officer of Labdoor said. "Informed consumers increasingly expect all of their products to be certified by independent organizations like Labdoor, and Garden of Life's commitment to this advanced proficiency testing will help make these certifications an industry-wide standard."

"In light of the recent research regarding potential benefits of CBD, and the passage of the Farm Bill in 2018 legalizing industrial hemp containing less than 0.3 percent THC by dry weight, there has been tremendous consumer demand for CBD products," Ray added. "Our new formulas are ideal for consumers who want the benefits of CBD without the effects or implications of THC."
