Badges for Jacob Hooy
The industrial hemp that Jacob Hooy is cultivated by Hempflax in Groningen, the leaves and buds are then sent separately to Germany, where they are processed into end products. The latter is illegal in the Netherlands. The company holds the GMP and HACCP certificates, but there is no demonstrable evidence of organic cultivation.
Jacob Hooy performs independent tests on cannabinoids and the presence of heavy metals, microbial substances, residual solvents and pesticides. However, these are not made available through public communication channels. The company’s customer service department again indicates that all European standards are met and sent us several test reports on request. Whether these tests are carried out for each production batch is unclear to us.
Product labelling complies with all legal standards, just like the product itself. This is therefore a safe product, but there is insufficient evidence to be able to rely on the quality promised by the brand itself.
