Is CBD Oil Vegan?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is becoming one of the most popular food supplements around the world, but is CBD Oil Vegan? CBD Oil is extracted from the Hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa) through different extraction methods, one of the extraction methods considered safe by the FDA is the Co2 Extraction method.
So, CBD Oil in its pure form is a Vegan product, but that doesn’t mean all CBD products are vegan.
Many suppliers will use Gelatin which is derived from collagen taken from animal body parts, which is added to many products in the CBD industry.
Another common animal product added to CBD products is beeswax, this is commonly used in topical CBD products & in cosmetic CBD products. Beeswax is a natural wax produced by the honeybees, and it is farmed to use as food and for cosmetic products.
There are also ingredients that may seem naturally Vegan on paper, but sometimes may have been tested on animals or have had negative environmental effects on animals. This would mean that depending on where this ingredient was sourced, it still may not be Vegan.
This brings us on to the point that if you follow a Vegan Lifestyle, one of the only ways to be certain that the product you’re buying is Vegan is to buy from a brand that are certified members of The Vegan Society. This would be your safest option to be completely certain.
The Vegan Society is an association that can give consumers full confidence that what they are purchasing has been verified as Vegan. That’s why YourHemp have become the first CBD Oil Company that are members of The Vegan Society. What does this mean? This means that all of our ingredients are checked and confirmed to be Vegan.
The Vegan Society do this by checking every single ingredient of our current and future products. Each ingredient is checked right down to the source to be able to confirm whether it is Vegan or not, as the consumer is unable to do this.
You can never be certain what is in the products that you are purchasing without 3rdparty testing or any associations to confirm the contents.
That’s why here at YourHemp, we operate in a regulated way in an unregulated industry. We openly have 3rd party testing on all of our products, and confirmation from The Vegan Society checks to ensure that all of our products are Vegan.
