When shopping for CBD, looking at the product's quality level is key — to make sure you get the highest effectiveness. You’re entitled to know whether or not a CBD company is making pure, potent and exceptional products.
Companies with the highest quality products are willing to step up to prove it, and we're one of those companies, so we're making it easy!
How do you know which (if any) other compounds you’re getting in your product, and what do they do? The lab reports will tell you all that you need to know and break down every chemical compound that’s in the hemp extract you’re buying. (Oh, and if a company withholds their lab reports from you, you have reason to be suspicious.)
Here is a breakdown of what to look for when reading your report. Your lab report will tell you how much of each of the following are in the product you're buying.
Since CBD is a relatively new industry, it means it’s up to the consumer to research the quality, purity and potency of the product that you’re buying since it's not as regulated (yet). For this reason, companies have taken matters into their own hands by finding ways to prove that their products are high in quality to their customers. Basically, any reputable CBD company provides customers with access to third-party lab reports. These lab reports give you all of the information that you need to know regarding the quality, purity, potency and chemical composition of their CBD.
The only thing is that these lab reports can be a bit confusing to the CBD newbie. So we’re here to help. We’ve created a simple guide that will make it easy for you to read through a CBD lab report. This way, you’ll know for sure that what you’re getting is the real deal. (If a company doesn’t offer lab reports on their product, we’d suggest finding one that does!)
Of the three types of CBD products available:
• Full spectrum has all cannabinoids, including THC (keep in mind that the hemp plant only contains about 0.3 percent THC, which is not enough to produce psychoactive effects)
• Broad spectrum has all cannabinoids, except THC
• CBD isolate is ONLY CBD, with no other compounds
Transparency is Crucial
Now that you understand what to look for in a CBD lab report, you’ll be able to make a more informed purchase the next time you’re buying.
Remember that as a customer, you are entitled to this information. Therefore, if a company withholds their lab reports from you, you have reason to be suspicious.
