To guarantee maximum objectivity, our raw materials and products are analyzed and tested by independent, external laboratories in addition to our internal tests.
As with vegetables or food in general, the hemp plant flowers, leaves and stems used to extract cannabinoids and terpenes may contain pesticides, herbicides, molds and other organic and inorganic toxins. Besides, nature does not produce all plants in the exact same way every time. The content of cannabinoids, terpenes, antioxidants and other substances in a typical hemp phytocomplex can vary. It is our duty as a manufacturer to select the best raw materials and to ensure a consistent high-quality end product.
If you are planning to buy CBD as food supplement, these are the most important quality criteria you should look out for:
Cannabinoid content in the final product
Certificates and analysis/test results, such as ARGE CANNA
Proof of lab analysis from independent, objective labs
Natural vs. purified CBD
Phytocomplex of ingredients
Legality (usually regarding the THC residue)
Application & Dosage instructions
Bottling & Storage instructions
What to look for exactly is described in more detail in our blog post “What to look for when buying CBD oil”
