The CBD industry is growing and will continue to, especially after the legalization of industrial hemp. CBD can help treat chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and so much more. But it is important to find high quality CBD oil in order to reap the benefits of CBD. Companies that produce CBD products are responsible for being fully transparent with their customers about what ingredients are being used. This will give customers the information needed to help them select the best quality CBD vape oil.
Responsible companies who stand behind the quality of their products will offer their customers a 3rd party lab report with their order. The 3rd party lab report will detail the potency of the CBD and will give customers the proper information about high purity CBD oil.
What are 3rd party lab reports?
To find the best quality CBD vape oil search for a CBD brand that offers a copy of the 3rd party lab report. Third party lab reports are unbiased information of what’s actually in the product that is being purchased. CBD companies will use a third party lab that has no affiliation with the brand or with any organization that is mandating specific results to test their CBD. That way you know how potent the CBD is and whether it is a top quality CBD oil.
So you may be wondering, “How is CBD potency measured?”. Well, the lab runs the CBD oil through a hi-tech chromatography machine to find how much of the CBD is present and the accuracy of the manufacturer’s claims. They also test for other full-spectrum compounds like terpenes and flavonoids.
How to read a lab report
Lab reports hold important information, but can be difficult to understand. We are going to give you tips on how to read the test results of a CBD 3rd party lab report to help you determine where to buy high quality CBD oil.
- Tip #1: These are the main compounds to look out for when purchasing a full-spectrum oil: CBD (cannabidiol) and other cannabinoids (CBC, THCA, CBG, CBDA, and CBN). These other cannabinoids are found in the hemp plant and end up in CBD oil due to the extraction process. Some reports may not show the other cannabinoids, but it doesn’t mean it’s a bad CBD oil.
- Tip #2: Make sure the lab report does not include any pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, and fertilizers. The best quality CBD will be free of these potentially harmful products.
- Tip #3: Steer clear of CBD oil that has the term “microbe” in the lab report. There are different species of microbial organisms, good and bad, but you don’t want any present in your CBD.
- Tip #4: Industrial hemp is said to contain <0.3% of THC, so make sure the lab report (if THC is present) is less than 0.3%.
These are the important things to look out for when reading a 3rd party lab report. Make sure the CBD is of the highest-quality, thc-free, and free of pesticides. For those who need higher doses of CBD make sure that the potency level is high.
