How a Certificate of Analysis can help you choose safe CBD products 

In a largely unregulated marketplace, there can be a lot of confusion and misinformation regarding the safety of CBD products. The good news? A CBD Certificate of Analysis (COA) can help set things straight by keeping you informed.  

Continue reading as we discuss what a COA is and why you should always look for one before you purchase a CBD product. 


What is a CBD Certificate of Analysis? 

A Certificate of Analysis, commonly referred to as a COA, is a certificate that a CBD product receives after it’s been analyzed by a third-party laboratory.

On that certificate, you’ll find a factual, scientific breakdown of exactly what’s in the CBD product that was tested. You’ll also be able to ensure that you’re getting the actual amount of CBD that’s specified on the product description.


Why is a COA important? 

Since the CBD industry isn’t heavily regulated, ensuring the quality and contents of the CBD products you consume is that much more important. 

A COA is your key to discovering the purity, potency, and quality of the CBD products you want to purchase. These certificates also assure you that the product you’re consuming doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or ingredients. 

What’s more, CBD companies that get their products lab-tested and provide access to their Certificates of Analysis are that much more committed to the safety and efficacy of their products and their customer’s well-being. 


What should you look for when reading a COA? 

You should always verify that the CBD product you’re using is free of: 

  • Heavy metals
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides 
  • Microbrials 
  • Filth
  • Chemical fertilizers, and  
  • Solvents.

Below is an example of the Certificate of Analysis completed for our CBD balm. In this certificate, it’s clear that this product as a whole passed each of the tests the lab has conducted.
