20 Mar Why Does My CBD Product Need Third Party Verification?
Because the Hemp-derived CBD manufacturing facilities are not currently regulated, valid third party testing and verification information will show you what exactly is in your Hemp-derived CBD products and if the product is free of micro-toxins, pesticides, residual solvents, and heavy metals.
I highly recommend you only buy Hemp-derived CBD products that have third party testing and verification. Look for what is called a certificate of analysis (COA) of your product on the company’s website. If you see the product with a COA, make sure the results came from a third party testing center that is accredited by A2LA, PJLA, or ORELAP for ISO 17025 and TNI/NELAC.
Note, because so many companies are mislabeling their products, you will not know if you are purchasing something that contains CBD at the dosage labeled or if the product is safe, as some COA could contain misleading information and are not from valid testing centers.
I highly encourage you to do your due diligence when in comes to ALL nutritional supplements, because unfortunately, the supplement industry is not well regulated.
