Why LegitScript CBD Certification?

LegitScript’s certification program is recognized by Google to vet advertisers for eligible CBD products and websites. CBD manufacturers and retailers with LegitScript-certified websites can stand out in an increasingly crowded field by advertising on Google.

Per Google’s policy, both a website and all CBD products being offered on it must be certified by LegitScript to be able to advertise these products on Google Ads.

CBD Product Certification
Why Get Certified
  • Demonstrate trust with consumers by letting them know you operate safely and transparently, and that your products have been tested.
  • Gain approval from the certification expert relied on by some of the world’s largest payments companies and internet platforms.
  • Grow your business by encouraging more retailers to carry your products.

Applicants get their LegitScript certified CBD products included on a select list  of certified products visible to the public. Certified CBD retailers, who must have a catalog that consists of only LegitScript certified CBD products, can choose certified products from this list to advertise on their websites.

We welcome CBD manufacturers to collaborate with certified CBD retailers to advertise their certified CBD products.

Additionally, manufacturers selling only LegitScript-certified products can get their websites certified to become eligible to advertise on Google. Click the Website Certification tab to learn more about that process.

How it Works
  1. CBD applicants submit eligible CBD products to be certified.* Use promo code CBDPRODapp at checkout to get your application fee waived.
    * Examples of in-scope products include cosmetics, soaps, topicals, and other products that are in compliance with USDA, FDA, FTC, and DEA regulations, as well as state-specific laws. See our product application checklist to learn more.
  2. CBD products are reviewed for compliance against our Certification Standards and sample tested for consumer safety. For more information on the application process, see process and pricing.
  3. All certified CBD products are included on a select list linked from LegitScript's CBD homepage that retailers can choose from to advertise on their certified websites.
  4. Retailers who have a CBD product catalog that consists only of LegitScript-certified products are eligible to submit their websites for LegitScript certification, a requirement for advertising on Google.*
    * Manufacturers with a CBD product catalog that consists only of LegitScript-certified products can also choose to submit their websites for LegitScript certification. Having only product certification(s) without website certification is insufficient for advertising on Google.
    Note: In addition to receiving LegitScript’s CBD Certification, advertisers must comply with all externally available Google ads policies in order to advertise on Google.
