What is the U.S. Hemp Roundtable?
The U.S. Hemp Roundtable is an organization made up of dozens of leading companies and organizations within the hemp industry for humans and animals. Each of the companies, like Pet Releaf, strive to bring only the safest hemp and CBD products to the industry. The roundtable stays up to date with the newest innovations, regulations, and policies within the industry to help companies better navigate the hemp and CBD world. They proudly represent the industry’s major national grassroots organizations and look to pave the way for hemp and CBD companies through education and action.
Education and Advocacy
With common misconceptions surrounding hemp-derived CBD products, The Roundtable prioritizes educating customers, policymakers, and businesses about the benefits and the safety of hemp-derived CBD. As well as education, another key focus of theirs is advocacy. For pet parents to have access to CBD products that support the wellbeing of their loved ones, these products must be legally available and regulated. Through the Roundtable, we advocate for legislation that ensures the safety and legality of CBD products for not only humans, but for our beloved pets as well.
What campaign efforts are the U.S. Hemp Roundtable focused on currently?
Right now, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is heavily focused on supporting the recent introduction of H.R. 8179 also known as the Hemp and Hemp-Derived CBD Consumer Protection and Market Stabilization Act of 2020. If this law is passed, it would ensure that hemp-derived CBD and other non-intoxicating hemp ingredients could be lawfully marketed as dietary supplements.
The signage of this bill would be a significant win for CBD consumers and pet parents! This bill would require CBD and hemp manufacturers to comply with the entire existing comprehensive regulatory framework for dietary supplements. In other words, it would ensure that the products are deemed safe, properly labeled, and prepared using Good Manufacturing Practices. If you’re looking to learn more about how you can help the passing of the bill, The Roundtable makes it super easy to contact your local representative about your support of H.R. 8179.

What does it mean to be U.S. Hemp Authority Certified?
In order to obtain the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification, Pet Releaf had to go through intense 3rd party audits by Where Food Comes From as well as audits of our U.S. family hemp farms, CO2 extraction facility, and production facilities. Obtaining the U.S. Hemp Authority Seal guarantees the safety and trustworthiness of our products so you can feel comfortable administering Pet Releaf CBD products to your pets.
How does Pet Releaf ensure the safety of their CBD pet products?
We oversee our entire manufacturing process from seed to sale, from plant to pet. From our U.S. family hemp farms to our supercritical CO2 extraction process, our team is there every step of the way. We ensure the quality and potency of each of our products with our 3rd party laboratory product testing so you can be confident in the products you’re administering to your fur family daily.
