CBD Label Design

What do we require on our labels to ensure FDA and state compliance?

There are certain requirements as to what must be on a CBD product label in order to be FDA and state compliant. This pertains to our in-house manufactured products as well as compliances we follow for our white label/private label clients. These regulations are in place to protect consumers as so there is minimal confusion to ensure customers are purchasing what they intended to.

    1. This is for marketing purposes as well as for ease of shopping.
  2. Product identity
    1. The purpose of the CBD product, such as muscle relaxation or sleep aid.
