We make use of many operations and systems that ensure the highest safety and quality of our CBD products. We scrutinize our ingredients ensuring the highest standard of quality, and we ensure our suppliers follow the same caliber of regulations.
Testing both unfinished ingredients as well as finished products in third-party labs ensures quality and safety throughout the entire process.
From the beginning until our customers receive their product, we take a thorough approach by analyzing, testing, and overseeing every single step ensuring you have a CBD oil you know is safe and effective.
Verifying what’s in the bottle is the most important step when you choose a CBD oil to purchase. To spell it out for you: CBD oil is as good as its testing results. Purchasing a cheap product can be filled with toxic ingredients and possibly illegal levels of THC.
Because the industry is still in the wild, wild west stage, (not surprisingly) there are manufacturers out there selling products containing little to no CBD at all. Providing third-party lab results ensures the CBD oil you choose is a credible and safe product worth your trust.
Terpene testing: Terpenes give color, flavor,and effects to all plants- cannabis included. A terpene test is used to locate and identify which compounds (and in which quantity) are in a hemp strain. Tiny resinous (oily) glands on plants produce distinct aromas like citrus, pine, and floral each with their own roster of therapeutic benefits.
CBD/THC ratio: Hemp (or cannabis) products are required to have no more than 0.3% THC. A higher concentration of CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBC, CBN, and CBG are the components of a high-quality CBD oil.
Solvents are used when processing the hemp plant into oil (and other products). Solvent based extraction process can leave behind trace (residual) compounds like carbon dioxide, propane, acetone, and ethanol, which are not only very flammable, but they are also harmful to your health.
If mold or bacteria is present on the hemp plant, a microbiological test will show it. Testing for these pathogens on the plant ensures no harmful contaminants make it to the extraction phase. Consuming mold and bacteria in high levels can cause unpleasant side effects.
If the hemp used to make CBD oil was treated with herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides, a pesticide residue screen will show concentrates of these compounds. Consuming residual contaminants is very unhealthy.
Heavy metals should never be present in hemp and finished CBD products. Testing for trace amounts of metals and heavy metals can identify and detect these harmful compounds.
These mycotoxins and aflatoxins are natural toxins and common in humid and warm environments. They are cancer causing and poisonous chemicals that should never be present in any CBD product.
