CBD Testing: Who Can You Trust?
Leafly, a popular website that focuses on all things cannabis, wanted to see if the CBD on the market delivered its promised dosage in the lab.
When it comes to buying CBD it seems like every place you go has it. From gas stations to CVS, CBD is popping up in retail markets all over the country. With CBD being in all these markets their labels must represent what’s truly in the bottle right? Interestingly enough, that is not always the case.
Leafly a popular website that focuses on all things cannabis wanted to see if the CBD on the market delivered its promised dosage in the lab. Leafly went into the market and purchased 47 different CBD products to test. They conducted their test at Confidence Analytics a Washington state-licensed cannabis lab.
Their results were interesting:
“Here’s the good news: Most of our tested products actually delivered CBD. The bad news: Most products didn’t deliver the exact dosage promised. Some came close. Many were in the ballpark. A few straight-up cheated their customers.”
When tested for potently only 51% of the CBD products were within 20% of their promised dose.
On a good note CBD tinctures were the most reliable form of CBD with 7/7 products tested being within 20% of their advertised dose.
As you can see the CBD industry has some room for improvement when it comes to labeling their products with 100% accuracy. In the meantime the best thing a consumer can do is purchase CBD from a trusted company that provides a certificate of analysis for its products.
