The Clean Label Project is committed to changing the definition of food and consumer safety through data, science, and transparency. Specifically, in the emerging CBD industry, we have found a wide variance of product label accuracy, product purity, and THC contaminant levels among CBD products. Clean Label Project™ is a national non-profit with the mission to bring truth and transparency to food and consumer product labeling. We have found that there is an increase in consumer, media, and academic attention being paid to the health consequences of exposure to heavy metals, pesticide residues, plasticizers, etc.. Yet, consumers will never find this information on product labels.

About Clean Label Project’s Awards & Certifications for CBD Products

Puirty Award

Clean Label Project Purity Award Winning brands have voluntarily and proactively implemented procedures to ensure ingredient quality and purity. They have enlisted the help of Clean Label Project to go into the marketplace and randomly purchase and test their products to ensure that they continue to live up to these high standards. You can read more about the Clean Label Project Purity Award Winning CBD brands and how the Award program works here.

THC Free Award

When it comes to CBD products, sometimes it’s not JUST about product purity; it’s also about the assured absence of THC which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol – the main psychoactive compound in marijuana that gives the “high” sensation. Consumers reach for CBD for its calming effects, not necessarily looking for the “high.” Clean Label Project THC-Free Certification means that the products have been tested to ensure the absence of THC in the finished products below certain levels of detection.
