Ministry of Hemp Verified: What Does Our Seal Mean?

Ministry of Hemp now offers a special “Ministry of Hemp Verified” seal to the brands we review. If you see this seal in use by a brand, come visit our website to see the products we’ve reviewed and learn more about them. 

At the Ministry of Hemp, our goal is to build confidence and transparency in the hemp industry, especially when it comes to the contents of CBD products. Sadly, fake products, or at least CBD products with misleading labels, are commonplace. That’s why we only work with brands that meet our high standards. 

Since we’re starting to share this special seal with our brand partners, we wanted to explain what it means to be “Ministry of Hemp Verified.” 

What does it mean to be Ministry of Hemp Verified?

We try to focus on good brands only, which is why you won’t find many negative reviews on our site. When a brand is “Ministry of Hemp Verified,” that means we’ve tried out one or more of their products and think they’re worth your time and money.

If we’ve reviewed a product, it means that Ministry of Hemp and our review team have verified the following:

Ministry of Hemp Verified seal
  • Save
  • Transparency — the brand is transparent about where they source their hemp and how they manufacture their hemp extract products.
  • Responsiveness — You should be able to easily reach customer service by phone, email, or some form of online chat, in order to get questions answered.
  • Quality — We carefully inspect the brand’s third-party lab results and perform our own testing on one or more products.

You should always research a CBD brand more before you purchase. We hope you see our seal as a good starting point in that research. 

Third party lab results and our lab testing 

We make sure that every brand we review offers third-party lab-results, also known as COAs or Certificates of Analysis. These tests should be performed on each batch of the product produced, and customers should be able to easily access the results online. Many quality brands also include test results with the product during shipping.

Before awarding the Ministry of Hemp Verified seal, we also send a sample of each product we review to our own trusted lab and run it through a battery of tests.

These tests ensure that the product is free from harmful toxins like heavy metals and pesticide residues. We also test the strength of the products, to make sure they’re accurately labeled and you’re getting everything you pay for.

Please note, some brands offer dozens of products. Ministry of Hemp is still a small company, and we can’t test every product that our partners offer. If you’re curious, search our site for more information. We include our lab test results in our reviews, whenever possible. If you’re unsure about any product, ask for more information from the brand’s customer service team.

Encouraging best practices in the hemp industry

Our long term goal is to help build a better hemp industry. One where consumers can trust that the products they buy are safe, pure, and accurately labeled. 

The Ministry of Hemp Verified seal is just one small part of that process. Whenever you see the seal, we hope you’ll look up our reviews and also educate yourself. In the end, we hope you’ll discover the hemp products that are right for you.
