The self-affirmed GRAS process applies to novel food additives, providing assurances of safety as a food ingredient through review by independent toxicological experts in the field.
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.
“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.”
