CBD products have exploded in popularity in recent years, and as a leader in the personal care industry, RNA has added hemp products to our capabilities.
Hemp, and specifically talking about industrial hemp is a variety of plant from the Cannabis Sativa family species that is grown specifically for many industrial uses. Hemp has been used in US agriculture for several hundred years before the entire Cannabis family was banned in the last century. Hemp was made legal throughout the US in the 2018 Farm Bill which contained several rules regarding the allowed concentration and uses of hemp. The Cannabis Sativa plant produces oil rich in Cannabinoids, the precious oil molecules that interact with the human body's already existing Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The Cannabinoids that are the most popular are Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), and Cannabinol (CBN). There is much research being done on the benefits of Cannabinoids in the human body and much more anecdotal evidence which suggests it can help in a substantial way. RNA has been working with, formulating with, manufacturing with hemp since 2017 and we have the best supply chain for producing high quality, consistent, and federally legal hemp products.
RNA works with all varieties of hemp based raw materials, formulating amazing innovative topicals and supplements using full spectrum oil, broad spectrum oil, CBD isolate, CBG isolate, CBN isolate, CBC isolate, and many more. Additionally, we work with all the by products of hemp, including the fiber rich powder for facial scrubs and exfoliation, hemp butter for moisturization, and even hemp seed oil from the male plant that works great as a carrier oil.
We've worked with several major CBD brands to help manufacture their products to ensure legality, safety, and efficacy. Our in-house analytical lab is equipped with the state of the art HPLC/GC system for testing CBD products to ensure they abide by all laws and regulations currently in place, and also to make sure these products are properly labeled and consumers are buying exactly what they're expecting. We always ensure our batches are within COA specifications and can arrange third party testing if requested. This is a new space, but RNA's experience in personal care products makes us an excellent choice for CBD brands looking to expand and grow.
