CBD Companies Depend on Hemp Farmers to Follow New USDA Rules
- Spectrum Bay News 9
Global Widget™, the industry-leading manufacturer and distributor of premium CBD products, was featured on Spectrum News in light of new hemp production and manufacturing rules from the USDA that went into effect this week. Margaret Richardson, Global Widget’s chief compliance and legal officer, gave Spectrum News an inside look at Global Widget’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Richardson got the Spectrum News team up to speed on what Global Widget is doing to make legal and safe CBD products. “We need our farmers to have the right type of Industrial Hemp, which means it has to have a low content of THC that is regulated by the USDA. So, that’s a federal rule. So, we have to make sure that our farmers comply with that,” Richardson explained.
Florida’s Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services Nikki Fried also stopped by Global Widget as she pushes for the multi-million-dollar industry to grow safely.
“This is part of the vision of creating a regulated market here in the state and the county – to make sure the products that people are utilizing and taking and putting into their bodies are safe, that they have gone through all of the appropriate tests and manufacturing standards. And they’re doing a fantastic job here,” Fried said.
