Why Are CBD Third Party Lab Reports So Important??

LAB REPORTS - Click Here 

With the skyrocketing momentum built up from last year, CBD has exploded into 2019 as one of the fastest growing industries of the year!

As the market continues to explode, hundreds of companies eager to get in on the action have begun flooding into the market.

While less than a decade ago, consumers were limited to a few product options from several different brands; today, they can hop online and choose from hundreds of different brands and dozens of different product options such as e-liquids, beverages, topicals, and more....BUT, are they SAFE??

More Isn’t Always Better...

In some cases more can be a good thing. In this case; however… more has presented quite a bit of challenges… Especially for those who are new to the industry.

The challenge - which you’ve likely realized if you’ve tried more than two different CBD brands - is that not all CBD products are created equal.

CTFO Believes in Quality, Transparency and Accountability. That's why they provide third party testing and documentation to backup everything that is shared.

All products are manufactured in GMP Certified Facilities, which means they're regulated by the FDA to ensure that what's on their labels is what's in the products. The products are the highest quality and purity available anywhere.

Why are CBD Third-Party Lab Reports So Important?

In reality, CBD oil is only as good as its latest lab result.

Your biggest concern when purchasing your CBD oil is verifying what is in the bottle. Unfortunately, there are CBD products on the market today that include everything from illegal doses of THC to prohibited synthetic cannabinoids. Also, perhaps not so shockingly given the loosely regulated nature of the industry, some sellers add a lot less CBD in the bottle than they advertise.

Third party lab reports are especially important for the CBD industry. It’s very easy for a company to make claims on the labels, but not all CBD products are manufactured equally.

Nowadays, many brands offer third-party lab reports, often referred to as certificates of analysis (COA), and this is the key to knowing what is (and isn’t) in your expensive CBD product.

CBD OIL LAB REPORTS - WHY ARE THEY NECESSARY?

Unfortunately, this opportunity has attracted quite a few poor quality players who are out to make a quick buck.

With no industry standards in place and without the guidance of the FDA, the quality of the CBD products is very unpredictable. Unlabeled CBD products have become common, and more worryingly, there are reports of harmful synthetic knock-offs. This means that consumers need to be very cautious when shopping around for any CBD product, whether it be an oil tincture, capsules, edible gummies, etc.

A study that was done in 2017 by the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in conjunction with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (and published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that the contents of supposedly high CBD products often vary drastically from the manufacturer’s claim.

As part of this study, researchers tested a variety of hemp-based CBD products that were available to purchase online. The samples included CBD vape liquids, oil tinctures, and capsules which were blinded and tested by a third party lab three separate times to determine the actual cannabinoid potency. Believe it or not, just 3 out of 10 CBD products tested within 10% of the amount listed on the product label.

Another recent report that was published in ArsTechnica found that nearly 70% of online products that claim to have CBD cannabis extracts are mislabeled. Out of 84 products that were sold online from 31 companies, just 31% had accurate CBD amounts stated on the label. Moreover, some products contained other components that weren’t listed, such as illegal amounts of THC.

THIRD-PARTY LAB TESTS TO LOOK FOR BEFORE YOU BUY CBD OIL

In order to verify that a CBD product is pure, free of toxins and able to provide the claimed benefits, there are several analyses that need to be done. Generally, the cannabinoids that are tested are CBD, THC, CBC, CBN, and CBG. CBD is a non-psychoactive component and responsible for the majority of the health benefits associated with the cannabis plant.

Before you purchase a CBD product, you should be aware of the contents and the data regarding the product. Here are some analysis tests to look for before you purchase a CBD product -

  • CBD/THC ratio: It’s desirable for a cannabis or hemp product to have a higher concentration of CBD, and in fact it is required by law that they contain little to no THC (less than 0.3% by volume). Also, it should have minimal concentrations of other potentially psychoactive components.
  • Microbiological testing: This is done to ensure that there are no harmful mold colonies or bacteria on the cannabis or hemp plants. If there are pathogens on the plant, they can easily get inside the body if the levels are too high, and cause unwanted side effects.
  • Pesticide testing: This is important for ensuring the safety of cannabis and hemp compounds since the plants can be treated with fungicides and herbicides and high concentrations of these can cause significant side effects.
  • Residual solvents testing: Lab tests should include an analysis of residual solvents. Solvents are used when the plant is processed and turned into oil, powder or other products, but only for the solvent-based extraction process. Too high concentrations of solvents like propane, acetone, ethanol, and carbon dioxide can lead to unpleasant health effects and turn the product into a highly flammable one.

My favorite place to buy all kinds of cool CBD stuff for my family like Gummies, CBD Oil Drops, Hair Care, Beauty Care and even CBD stuff for our dog Jake, delivered to any place in the U.S and many other countries is a place called MyChoiceCBD powered by CTFO.

These guys use Certified U.S.A grown Organic Hemp, and a super clean CO2 extraction method. I really like these guys, because I know their Hemp is the best in class, and that means I don't have to worry about any solvents, butane, pesticides, molds, microbes or any other nasty stuff in my CBD products.

So if you are looking for some cool CBD products online that are not only Top Notch, but also home of the Exclusive, Patented 10xPure... Look No Further, You Have Found the Absolute Best!
