What Does a CBD Certificate of Analysis Look Like?
- Cannabinoids: These are the naturally occurring compounds found primarily in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant and in hemp extracts that consumers are seeking today for their health and wellness benefits.
- Microbial: This test ensures that the products you’re consuming don’t have microbiological contamination such as salmonella, yeast and molds.
- Residual Solvents and Heavy Metals: Lead, methyl mercury and arsenic are not listed on any ingredient panel for a reason. A person wouldn’t want to ingest them. But many hemp-derived CBD products don’t pass tests for these things because the soil they were grown in. Consider this: hemp plants were used to help clean up the soil around Chernobyl.
- Pesticides: We understand that pesticides are a part of modern agriculture. But they aren’t a part of what you want to be consuming each day if you can avoid them. As we explained earlier, anything you spray on a hemp plant will show up in a hemp extract, which CBD is extracted from.
