Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Product Certification

Produce hemp-based products consistent with Good Manufacturing Practices, quality control procedures and labeling requirements.

Scientist testing oil

NSF International certifies hemp and hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products to NSF/ANSI 173, the American National Standard for dietary supplements, and to NSF 229, our certification guideline for functional foods and beverages.

Products containing hemp or hemp-derived CBD are not eligible for certification under NSF International’s Certified for Sport® program.

Products Containing Hemp

Depending on the circumstances, products containing hemp may be eligible for certification to NSF/ANSI 173: Dietary Supplements or to NSF 229: Functional Foods.

Products Making No CBD Content Claims

These products can be evaluated under the requirements of NSF/ANSI 173 or NSF 229, which include testing for acceptable levels of trace CBD pursuant to FDA generally recognized as safe (GRAS) guidelines. As an example, hemp seed-based products can be evaluated under either NSF/ANSI 173 or NSF 229.

Products Making CBD Content Claims

These products can be evaluated under the requirements of NSF/ANSI 173 or NSF 229 provided the product meets NSF International’s allowable daily intake (ADI) for CBD in acceptable hemp-based ingredients.

Products Formulated With CBD Isolate or Refined Hemp Extract

These products are not eligible for evaluation under NSF/ANSI 173 or NSF 229.

Not all products will qualify for certification. Please contact us to inquire about your specific product and its eligibility for certification.
