In 2015, the first big CBD product to go mainstream was CBD oil. CBD oil's popularity lead to developments in CBD products: CBD skin care, CBD gummies, and even, CBD cookies. And now, the next phase of CBD is before us, certified CBD.
CBD's rise to popularity has unfortunately been adversely affected by fake, uncertified CBD products (and Amazon hasn't helped). This new era of CBD seeks to guarantee purity and quality through various important certifications: USDA, GMP, and Kosher, to name a few.
Today, we'll take a look at the Kosher CBD oil certification; a rare, but important CBD certification that works to ensure inclusivity in the CBD market. In this helpful article we'll discuss what kosher CBD is, how kosher CBD is made and certified, and how to private label your very own kosher CBD oil.
What is Kosher?
The term Kosher refers to the consumable foods & beverages deemed acceptable under orthodox Jewish law. Within the Jewish Orthodox Union, only foods that are deemed kosher can be, 'permitted to be eaten and can be used as ingredients'.
Why does CBD oil need to be Kosher certified?
If you're wondering 'is CBD oil kosher', in most cases, it already is. However, without a proper inspection performed by a Kosher authority, there is no way of knowing if the CBD is 100% kosher. For example, it's possible that equipment used in creating the CBD oil may have come into contact with animal byproducts that don't meet kosher standards, ultimately compromising the CBD's kosher status.
Kosher foods fall into 3 large categories:
CBD falls into pareve, a category that refers to any edible products that are neither meat nor dairy. Pareve food items have their own set of requirements in order to be considered Kosher:
- Pareve foods cannot be processed with equipment used for meat or dairy processing.
- Fruits, vegetables, and grains products (hemp/cannabis) must not contain insects or insect larvae contaminants.
How does CBD oil get certified Kosher?
In order to get kosher CBD oil, the CBD manufacturer creating the CBD oil needs to go through the Kosher certification process.
For example, Neurogan CBD is Kosher certified by OK Kosher, a leading Kosher foods authority dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of kosher law for food manufacturers.
In order to receive this certification, our raw ingredients, as well as our manufacturing facility and tools, had to be personally inspected by OK Kosher.
Why would you make Kosher CBD oil?
At Neurogan, we believe in celebrating diversity and practicing inclusion.
Whereas most CBD companies don't provide Kosher CBD options, we feel that a kosher certification is integral to making sure that a wide audience can have access to CBD while still staying true to their religious faith.
