BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Boulder-based CW Hemp, exclusive providers of Charlotte's WebTM premium hemp extract, announced today that their FDA registered manufacturing facility was awarded the Mérieux NutriSciences Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Certification. With an excellence score of 98.9%, this further validates the company's commitment to the highest quality manufacturing standards for its cannabinoid-rich supplements.
"Charlotte is a little girl and there are tens of thousands of Charlottes now, so purity and quality are paramount to us," said Joel Stanley, CEO of CW Hemp. "While others import their hemp from international sources, CW Hemp is completely vertically integrated – from cultivation to final product. We organically grow our proprietary hemp genetics, and manufacture and bottle our products right here in Colorado. It's only natural to obtain the GMP certification as the next step in our quality promise. I'm very proud of our team."
CW Hemp, the pioneer in cannabinoid-rich hemp extracts, originally developed Charlotte's Web as a non-psychoactive, "medical marijuana" to aid epilepsy patients. After the miraculous results experienced by dozens of people featured on CNN and in other media, the brand received international acclaim and demand to address many other wellness applications. After the US Farm Bill re-classified Charlotte's Web as "industrial hemp" (similar to hemp granola bars or proteins) in 2014, the brand began serving a much more diverse market and shipping its premium hemp wellness supplements to all 50 states in the U.S.
Charlotte's Web premium hemp extracts deliver reliably consistent wellness by supplementing the body's endocannabinoid system. The unique cannabinoid blend from CW Hemp's proprietary genetics helps to support the body's response to exercise-induced inflammation, occasional feelings of anxiousness and everyday neurological stresses.
"This goes so far beyond us," said Stanley. "Our company purpose is to Enable a Better Quality of Life for all of our customers, and we hope that the GMP certification demonstrates our resolve in delivering on that commitment."
