Charlotte's Web's farm acreage, and its 137,000 sq. ft. Louisville, Colorado-based manufacturing and R&D facility earned U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic certification.
"Farming is governed by a natural law based on give and take, and we have learned that the more we give to our soil through organic and regenerative practices, the more we get back," said Ray Sitorius, Director of Farming Operations. "Earning organic certification validates our land stewardship and Charlotte's Web's ongoing commitment to farm in balance with nature and our living soil."
In compliance with federal regulations for certified organic practices and with the Company's own strict quality and safety standards, these products are produced without genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and made from hemp grown on U.S. hemp farms with no synthetic pesticides or herbicides. Charlotte's Web farmers use cover crops and crop rotation to build healthy soils. The Company maintained USDA-certified organic practices on its farm over a three-year transition period with on-farm inspections by a USDA accredited organic certification agency before being formally approved as 'USDA Certified Organic.'
"As a Certified B Corporation, we hold ourselves accountable to continual improvement from our organic hemp farms to our manufacturing facilities to the retail shelf," said Charlotte's Web Chief Executive Officer, Deanie Elsner.
