CBDistillery™ Receives Self-Affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) Status
This Milestone Achievement Continues the Vertically Integrated Family of Brands’ Commitment to the #CBDMOVEMENT™ by Providing Safe, High-Quality Products
DENVER, Nov. 14, 2019 — Balanced Health Botanicals™(BHB), parent company to the fast growing CBDistillery™ brand, announced today that the Company’s hemp-derived full-spectrum cannabidiol extract, and CBD isolate, has received self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status in accordance with the stringent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety guidelines. The self-affirmed GRAS process applies to novel food additives, providing assurances of safety as a food ingredient through exhaustive review by independent toxicological experts in the field.
BHB implements various protocols and procedures to ensure their customers have full trust in the safety and quality of their products. Over the course of a year, BHB partnered with academic experts to develop GRAS dossiers that were then submitted to a third-party panel of toxicologists to determine the safety of their CBD full-spectrum extract and CBD isolate, and thus awarding the status of self-affirmed GRAS.
“As the leaders of the #CBDMOVEMENT™, consumer safety is our first and foremost priority and the self-affirmed GRAS certification is a huge step for both Balanced Health Botanicals and the growing CBD industry,” said CEO Chase Terwilliger. “We are dedicated to providing safe and high-quality products– our customers deserve nothing less. The self-affirmed GRAS status adds upon our list of industry leading safety protocols. We encourage all CBD companies to take the right steps for the consumers and go through the GRAS process for their extracts,” said CEO Chase Terwilliger.
