We Have Made Our CBD Products Certificate of Analysis (COA’s) Available Here.
Based on to Mayo clinic’s analysis (done by Doctor Brent A. Bauer) a serious problem may appears because of possible inaccuracy with the label’s information about purity and dosage of CBD in products. A current analysis of almost one hundred CBD products purchased online showed that more than a 25% of the products contained less CBD than labeled or does not have it at all. At the same time, 20% products have THC in illegal concentration. So, innocent people can be in trouble with regular drug test.
A reputable CBD product will come with a certificate of analysis. That means it’s been third-party tested by an outside laboratory that doesn’t have a stake in the product. You may be able to access the certificate of analysis while you shop by scanning the QR code on the product with your smartphone.
CBD Products COA, or Certificate of Analysis, is an official document from a certified laboratory that demonstrate the quantity of different cannabinoids ingredients in a product. Manufacturers should send every batch of every product they make to a lab for testing, to protect their customers and prove that their products have as much CBD as they advertise.
As with any emerging industry, you must be careful. Hemp oil products can vary in quality and potency, dependent on producer. It is important that it is correctly analyzed to guarantee benefits as well as ensuring it is free from harmful toxins. As such, you should know what to check before purchasing any hemp oil products.
The first thing you want to check on a CBD Products Certificate of Analysis (COA) is that the company who performed the lab test is not the same company who is selling the product. This is called a ‘third party’ test and it is to ensure transparency in the results. If it was only tested by the company selling the product, there could be bias in the report.
Listing the cannabinoids which were detected as well as their concentration is probably the most important section of the COA because it tells consumers exactly which cannabinoids are present and at what potency. ‘ND’ stands for ‘non-detect’ meaning there was such a miniscule amount, if any, in the sample that the laboratory instruments could not detect it. Essentially, this means it is not present in the product.
THC-Free broad-spectrum hemp oils should have CBD, other cannabinoids such as CBG or CBN, but non-detect levels of THC. Full spectrum hemp extracts should have many cannabinoids including D9-THC, if the THC weight % is below 0.3%.
