01 Apr Is CBD Kosher?
Following increased consumer interest in recent years, the health and wellness market has set its sights on CBD for use as a supplement. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that has been extracted from hemp plants. Research suggests this cannabinoid is known for managing aches, pains, and nausea, without the psychoactive effects produced by other cannabinoids like THC. While many people stand by the efficacy of CBD, some individuals with special dietary or lifestyle requirements have inquired as to whether or not CBD extract is considered kosher. Colorado Kosher™ is a leading purveyor of kosher, all-natural wellness, and lifestyle products. In this post, we’ll cover all the special requirements that allow a product to be labeled Kosher Parve by a respected organization, and how our CBD products meet those needs. Parve means that the product is a neutral food because it’s neither meat or dairy.
What Makes a Product “kosher”?
As it applies to food, beverage, and ingestible supplements, the kosher label is qualified by a set of standards posed by five main kosher certification agencies in the United States. In order for products to be verified as kosher, they are evaluated by certified rabbinic field representatives. Assessments are based upon the most prominent tenants of Jewish culture, the laws of Torah. For example, kosher products:
- May not contain meat or poultry in combination with dairy components.
- May not contain shellfish or byproducts of shellfish.
- May not be cross-contaminated or stored in proximity to non-kosher products.
- Must be processed, handled, and packaged in accordance with standards set forth by the rabbinic field representative (or, mashgiach).
- Kosher meat may not be slaughtered in such a way where the animal suffers.
