Since CBD has proved its potential for the treatment of many diseases like acne, migraine, stress, etc., a lot of CBD infused products have started to emerge in the market. Even though there are many rules and guidelines for the production and sale of CBD infused products, many manufacturers are offering low quality products to consumers.
Since it is hard to differentiate a good and bad product, it is better to check the certificate of analysis of such CBD products. COA of CBD is a report issued by a third party laboratory. Since the federal laws have made it mandatory, every CBD product will be having a certificate to provide detailed information about such a product to the consumers. If a person needs to check the quality of a CBD product, he need not make a detailed study with the lab report but must check the following information.
The Credibility Of The Laboratory
The first thing that must be examined in a lab report is the credibility of the lab that issued the certificate. The consumer must make sure that the lab is affiliated by the International Organization for Standardization. This will help the consumers to decide whether the report is reliable or not. A well-known accredited lab’s report will not only enhance the accuracy of the report but also its authenticity.
Date Of Report
The date and time of the report is an important indicator to ensure the quality of a CBD product. There may be a lot of changes that can occur to a product over time. There will be also many changes in the laws regarding a CBD product. All this information must be communicated with the help of a lab report. But if the certificate is not updated, a consumer will not be able to get all the necessary information about a CBD product.
Check The Composition Of The Product
Most CBD products like gummies, pills, tincture, etc. are having many ingredients along with CBD. Therefore, it is necessary to know the proportion of CBD and also the composition of other elements in a CBD product before using it for any specific ailments. This can be made possible through a lab report. The COA will be having the list of all the elements in a product. It will also help a consumer to identify whether any product is contaminated.
A certificate of analysis is an assurance provided by the manufacturers to the consumers. Any buyer can get their hands on such a report by demanding it directly through the manufacturer’s website.
