We keep banging on about this because it's important.

ALL members are vetted, verified and are subject to a screening process.

That process doesn't change at all. Ever. It involves background checks and product checks. Any product from a CTA seller can be traced back to source. And ALL members can provide lab reports. There isn't a single excuse for not providing these.

What's more is that all members can be spot checked at any time. Random samples can be requested and must be produced or a member will simply be removed.

Of course, we don't accept everyone, we've also removed members and the board has refused members.

In short. If you take CBD for any reason you should be using a member of the CTA UK or the EIHA.

The only logical choice if you care about what you take.

In the meantime keep an eye out for some interesting news.
