Hemp and Third Party Testing
Why do we test?
CBD is found in many places now. Gas stations, convenient stores, health stores. It is now universally accessible for anyone to get a product; however, CBD is still unregulated by the FDA and USDA. Therefore, it is important to do research about what product you’re buying. You must refer to third-party lab results to make sure what you’re buying is actually a high-quality hemp product and not a poor-quality item trying to pass itself off as hemp.
Why should companies have third party results?
Having third-party lab testing means that a CBD company sends their product to an independent company to test the CBD concentration, and to ensure there are no traces of pesticides. Having third-party testing helps provides peace of mind for consumers as well having CBD companies ensure that their products are high quality.
What can we learn from the testing?
The most obvious thing we can learn from testing is the amount of CBD in the product. This is the best indicator if the product you’re buying matches up to what is on the label or not. You can also learn about the amount of THC as well. The legal amount of THC in CBD products is 0.3% and if it is higher than that, it is above the legal limit.
Lastly, you can also see if your product is Full-Spectrum or CBD Isolate. An Isolate product would only contain CBD and nothing else listed in its results. Meanwhile Full-Spectrum would have the terpenes, CBG and CBN listed as well as the CBD content.
What shouldn’t be found in the testing?
Mycotoxins, microbials such as salmonella or e coli, yeast, mold, or residual solvents should not be in your CBD product. These should be “Non Detectable” in the lab results.
We make sure each of our CBD and D8 Products have third party testing to ensure safety and accuracy.
