It’s important to understand how certification is awarded and what questions will be asked of applicants. Certification is available on both a per-product and per-website basis. We’ve compiled two questionnaires to simplify the process and demonstrate what documentation will be requested of you.

To ensure your application process goes smoothly, download our product questionnaire to certify a CBD product, or download our website questionnaire to certify a website containing CBD products.

Finally, before you apply, make sure to review the pricing structure for LegitScript CBD Certification as listed below.

Steps to Apply for Your LegitScript CBD Certification

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to apply — with tips, resources, and more.

1. Create an account.

Create an account and enter your contact information. Once you've set up an account you’re ready to proceed.

2. Start a new certification and pay for your application review.

Before completing the questionnaire, you'll pay a fee for the application review. You will not need to pay the annual subscription fee until after you have been certified. See pricing.

3. Complete the questionnaire.

You can save your progress and return to the questionnaire at your convenience. Once your application has been reviewed for eligibility, you will be directed to submit product samples to LegitScript's partner labs for testing.

TIP: Contact Client Relations at [email protected] for assistance with completing and/or submitting your application.

4. Clarify and remediate.

As our analysts review your application, they may reach out to you with questions or requests for additional information. They may also highlight areas of minor noncompliance that you'll need to remediate before receiving certification. By responding quickly to these requests, you can help streamline the review process.

TIP: Review time is based on the product’s contents, and the level of analysis required to assess said contents. Several variables can delay or extend the length of your review such as complexity, transparency, and applicant responsiveness. A careful review of our product and website application checklists and CBD Certification Standards will prepare you for a smooth review.

5. Pay your subscription fee.

Once your application has been approved, you'll need to pay the annual subscription fee to finalize the process and be fully certified.

After Submitting Your LegitScript CBD Certification Application

Are you wondering what happens to your application once it’s submitted? First, it is screened for completeness by an internal team. Once the screening process is complete, your application is submitted to the analyst team to review your business operations and licensure and ensure all hemp-derived products are transparently labeled. Additionally, we confirm you’re compliant with all local and national laws and our Terms & Conditions.
