CBD manufacturer and distributor Global Widget announced it has received U.S. Hemp Authority Certification (USHA).
Global Widget is the company behind CBD brands Hemp Bombs and Nature’s Script, along with the health and wellness brand Defense Boost and a contract manufacturer for leading CBD, health and wellness private label brands.
“As a leading manufacturer of CBD and wellness products to consumers, retailers, distributors and private label brands, this certification showcases our commitment to developing and making compliant, quality products every day,” said Global Widget co-founder Kevin Collins.
Audits for the USHA Certification were completed at Global Widget’s Tampa, Fla., facilities by FoodChain ID, one of the world’s leading food safety, testing, and sustainability organizations, and included reviews of the company’s quality management systems and standard operating procedures to ensure it is compliant with the U.S. Hemp Authority certification standard.
Based in Lexington, Ky., USHA creates and upholds stringent regulatory standards through independent third-party auditing, certifying many of the industry’s leading hemp and CBD companies. The certification signals Global Widget’s ongoing commitment to produce only the highest-quality gummies and other edibles, as well as topicals.
With more than 1,000 SKUs, Global Widget formulates, manufactures and distributes its products from its three facilities, which total more than 110,000 square feet. The company will be expanding with a fourth manufacturing and distribution facility in Tampa this summer with an additional 65,000 square feet.
In addition to the USHA Certification, Global Widget has also recently completed its certification process for Florida Food Hemp, Good Manufacturing Practice and Kosher certification.
