GREEN ROADS CBD PRODUCTS STAND OUT IN LOCAL NBC-MIAMI INVESTIGATION

GREEN ROADS CBD PRODUCTS STAND OUT IN LOCAL NBC-MIAMI INVESTIGATION

Independent Testing Finds Green Roads Products, Unlike Several Others, Contain Promised Levels of CBD

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL (July 29, 2019) -- The CBD industry is growing rapidly, and there are many brands for consumers to choose from, all claiming to offer the best and most effective products. But not all CBD products are alike. A recent investigation by NBC Miami affiliate WTVJ-TV found that Green Roads products contained the exact amount of CBD listed on the packaging -- which includes a QR code that links directly to a third party lab report --unlike many of the other tested CBD products.

NBC Miami Consumer Reporter Dan Krauth, who has been at the forefront of reporting on the complexities of the booming CBD market, and his team tested several different CBD products and found that more than half contained “much less” CBD than was listed on the product’s label.

Green Roads’ commitment to quality, safety, and transparency is reflected in the strict standards and rigorous, multi-stage, independent lab testing that are the company’s hallmark. All Green Roads products go through testing during three different production stages to ensure consumers are getting the right amount of CBD and that the products are free from THC, pesticides, solvents, and metals. Every Green Roads product package has a QR code that links directly to batch-numbered third-party lab sheets so that consumers can see the contents of the batch their product was made from.

“As a health and wellness company, nothing is more important to us than our customers’ confidence that they are getting exactly what we say they're getting," said Laura Fuentes, RPh, CEO and co-founder of Green Roads. “Our customers know they can trust the integrity and safety of our products. We’ll continue to do everything we can to make sure that the industry is held to this standard, as well.”

Green Roads welcomes and encourages the prospect of FDA regulation in the CBD industry because the company believes that consumers should have full confidence in the integrity and safety of the CBD products they are purchasing. Regulation will ensure that consumers can make informed choices to purchase products made by companies that follow the best practices in production, transparency, safety, and responsible marketing.
