Episode 116 - Hemp at a Higher Standard: Age Verification
On Episode 116, we launch our new series of podcast episodes regarding our newest initiative, Hemp at a Higher Standard. Global Widget Vice President of Sales, Vince Gillen, and industry advocate/attorney Rod Kight discuss how the age verification measures we educate our distribution and retail partners about help keep products out of the wrong hands. Learn about QR codes and additional labeling and packing standards we use across all our in-house hemp-derived cannabinoid brands. Gillen also discusses the additional educational resources we make available to our distributors, including position papers, brochures and other marketing materials. You’ll also hear about our latest product displays that allow for additional security to help keep our products from being sold to underage consumers. Kight talks the legalities of CBD, Delta-8 and Delta-9 products across the U.S. and what retailers and distributors should keep in mind when selling these products. Additionally, Kight discusses age-gating and what states like Tennessee have in the works regarding legislations which would require consumers to verify their age before purchasing these products.
