CBD and Hemp Product Certification

NSF certifies CBD and hemp products to NSF/ANSI 173, NSF 229 and NSF 306 (Certified for Sport®) by ensuring that the product meets all the same identity and contaminant criteria as other supplements while also testing for acceptable levels of trace THC and hemp-specific residual solvents, as defined by the standards.

To ensure that consumers have safer options for popular hemp and CBD products, NSF can certify them to the following standards:

  • NSF/ANSI 173 (Contents Certified)
  • NSF 229
  • NSF 306 (NSF Certified for Sport®)

NSF can also certify your facility operations to NSF/ANSI 455-2 for dietary supplements and NSF/ANSI 455-3 for cosmetics, and your dietary ingredient manufacturing can achieve NSF 173 GMP registration.

Hemp and CBD product certification helps brands by:

  • Certifying that their products do not contain unacceptable levels of contaminants, including those specific to hemp, like THC and certain solvents
  • Verifying the validity of label claims by an accredited body
  • Elevating brands by demonstrating a dedication to quality

Finished products with use instructions of up to 60 milligrams per day can be certified with these cautionary statements:

  • Not intended for children
  • Do not use if pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive
  • Intended for short-term use

NSF Certified for Sport® and Hemp/CBD

Finished products seeking NSF Certified for Sport® certification must meet the additional strict THC requirements of NSF 306.
