Members Testimonials

  • We joined the Florida Hemp Council to stimulate safe, certified laboratory testing of quality Hemp and CBD products throughout the state. By providing rapid full-panel testing, product efficacy trials, and conducting research into chemical Hemp profiles alongside human DNA, Kaycha Labs shares the Florida Hemp Council’s goal of promoting the overall sustainability of the Hemp industry in Florida.

  • Our dedication to improve the physical and mental well-being of all led us to join the Florida Hemp Council. Although we distribute premium CBD throughout the country, our roots are in Florida, and we have always emphasized the need for safety, transparency, and proper procedures for any Hemp entity in the state.

  • At heart, we are farmers with strong family values that are committed to sourcing with the local community whenever possible. Veritas Farms makes full spectrum CBD products for a happy and healthy lifestyle. We joined the Florida Hemp Council to reinforce the shared ideals of practicing sustainable farming methods, reducing our impact on the land, and remembering that future generations of farmers will follow us.

  • JustCBD was founded on the basis that CBD is Mother Nature’s secret miracle, but found that the CBD business was consistently misrepresented. We joined the Florida Hemp Council because we believe that you have the right to know exactly what is inside your CBD products, and to maintain that misrepresentation of Hemp product content is simply unacceptable.

  • Natural Life is a Florida-based chain of retail stores that specializes in cannabidiol (CBD) and other holistic plants. We joined the Florida Hemp Council because we share a mission to provide customers with high-quality natural supplements and wellness products, while providing a basis for the Florida Hemp Industry as a whole. Natural Life believes in helping people treat and maintain wellness more naturally.

  • Blume Hemp recognizes the power that comes with clarity of mind and from keeping calm and carrying on. We joined the Florida Hemp council to encourage the good actors, and deter dishonest companies in the Hemp and CBD industry in Florida.
