TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Proleve Distribution LLC, a Tampa-based CBD Manufacturer, is among the first companies to be officially licensed and certified by Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) under new rules that went into effect in January. Receiving this permit means Proleve is a state-approved source for food products containing the hemp extract CBD.

"We at Proleve believe this new regulatory environment will be safer for consumers and will provide them with greater confidence in the CBD products they are purchasing," said Jonathan Solomon, president of Proleve. "Proleve has taken a leadership role in ensuring our products are of the highest standards, and we are proud to be one of the first to receive state certification."

FDACS Commissioner Nikki Fried announced the new regulations on January 6 and said that state inspectors would begin enforcement. According to the new regulations (Florida Administrative Code 5K-4.034), any ingested food product sold in the state must come from an approved source that is licensed. Additionally, upon request from any state agency or law enforcement official, anyone selling Hemp Extract or CBD products must provide documentation that they obtain their product from an approved source.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating product of the cannabis plant, which has become increasingly popular among consumers. It can be ingested with food or applied topically to the body. The therapeutic benefits of CDB are being tested and evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

"As the CBD market continues to grow quickly across the United States it is vital that consumers have access to quality products that are safe and regulated," said Solomon. "Florida has taken the necessary steps to regulate and encourage responsible growth of the CBD market by providing pathways for manufacturers like Proleve to become licensed.

"We greatly appreciate all the work FDACS has done with us during our certification process and for guiding the industry. Through these joint efforts CBD consumers in Florida now have the opportunity to use licensed quality products." Proleve Distribution LLC is a Florida registered company located in Tampa, FL. http://www.proleve.com.
