CBD Lab Testing – How Does it Work?
The CBD Lab Testing market is limited in terms of regulation, which means, as we’ve mentioned before, that the quality of CBD products cannot always be guaranteed. As a result, you want to ensure you’re buying your CBD from a trusted source like us.
But then, how do you know you can trust us? We say that all of our CBD products have undergone all the necessary tests to prove their quality and ensure that what you’re getting is the same as what’s described on the packaging.
But what is this testing? How does CBD testing work?
About CBD Tests
There are numerous companies who operate in the world of CBD lab testing, but for all of them, the testing process is more or less the same.
A large batch of CBD is taken for testing, and numerous samples are taken at random from this batch to ensure consistency and accuracy in the testing.
A number of tests and screenings and then carried out. It’s not like there is one test for quality for CBD, there’s a lot to take into account.
Tests are for potency, purity, CBD content, other ingredients present, and many other things. This is particularly important for broad-spectrum CBD, which combined CBD with THC, terpenes, essential oils, and more.
In the case of broad-spectrum, the THC content must also be tested as well as the CBD content.
This ensures that the CBD content is what it says on the packaging and that the THC content complies with the guidelines in the country the CBD is being sold.
Tests may also provide additional information, such as a breakdown of the terpene profile of a CBD product, which could potentially give information on possible additional health benefits.
Basically, everything that can be tested for is tested for.
Is CBD Lab Testing Essential?
This question has two different answers depending on the tone. If the question is whether CBD tests are mandatory, the answer is no, they are not, there is no law stating that CBD must be tested because there is basically no regulation in the industry.
However, is CBD testing essential? To us, definitely.
We pride ourselves on maintaining transparency and honesty at all times, and in order to do that, we have to know that the products and information we provide are accurate at all times, it’s the same reason we often edit older articles if there have been changes that mean the information has altered.
With that kind of attention to accuracy in the information on these pages, it should come as no surprise that we find it equally important that we only sell CBD products that provide exactly what they say they do on the packaging, and that is why everything we offer undergoes extensive testing in independent laboratories before it ever comes close to appearing on our sales pages, and being sent to you.
How do I Know My CBD Products Have been Lab Tested?
The easiest way is to be told. While it is not mandatory under the law to get CBD products lab-tested, it is mandatory to not give false information, so it would be illegal to claim a CBD product is lab-tested if it is not. Therefore, if you read the words lab-tested, chance are you can trust it.
However, the easiest way to know you can trust a CBD supplier is simply by putting in your research, ensuring that the company you’re dealing with has a good profile and a host of available information.
When it comes to us, if you ever have a doubt or a question, we are always here to talk it through with you, just shoot us a message.
