Sunsoil Earns USDA Organic Certification for Full Spectrum CBD Oils

BURLINGTON, Vt., Feb. 11, 2020 -- Sunsoil, one of the largest CBD oil brands in the United States1, is approved as a Certified Organic producer by the USDA and will feature the USDA Organic Seal on a majority of its portfolio* starting in February 2020. The USDA Organic Seal is one of the highest standards for consumer packaged goods, requiring manufacturers to adhere to strict standards in farming, natural processing, and using certified organic natural ingredients. The ability to leverage the USDA seal on their portfolio is a further proof point of Sunsoil's commitment to producing the highest quality CBD.

"Our team is always working to continue to elevate our farming and production processes. We are excited to roll out the USDA organic seal as it highlights our commitment to maintaining the integrity of our products and plants," said Jacob Goldstein, co-founder and VP of Agriculture at Sunsoil.

Sunsoil received certification for its organic hemp from the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) of Vermont in early 2019. With Sunsoil's production operation also being certified organic in 2019, Sunsoil is now certified organic from seed to shelf. The organic certification process requires farming without the use of synthetic fertilizers, toxic pesticides or GMOs, and crop rotation. Sunsoil uses third party ISO (Independent Standard Organization) labs to test its finished products, testing multiple elements of the process, starting with the soil, which is tested for nutrients and the absence of heavy metals. 

"We are setting the standard for quality and transparency in CBD production," says Russ Scheller, Director of Operations at Sunsoil. "We're farming and processing organically, we're manufacturing in cGMP compliant facilities, and our third party lab tests are available through QR codes on our bottles."
