Testing CBD oil is a rigorous process that helps us market only the best quality and safest products. CBD oil has no quality control regulations to guide the production and selling of it. To create a product that our customers can have confidence in, we choose to test every drop in your bottle (or product).
All testing is done by Cannalabs (Ekotechlab), the industry leader in cannabinoid and hemp testing. Our tests ensure complete transparency, and we release new test updates each time new metrics are available.
Each lab test outlines what cannabinoids are in the oil. This outline includes CBDV, CBG,CBN,CBC,CBDa,CBC, and THC.

Testing CBD oil involves taking numerous samples from large batches of oil. Each sample is then put through a multitude of tests to grade how pure and potent it is. There are a number of things we are looking for with each test:
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that act directly and indirectly in a person’s body. This chemical is responsible for the therapeutic benefits associated with CBD oil.
Cannabidiol is a compound with a broad range of uses. It is the most prominent cannabinoid in CBD oil. This chemical interacts with your endocannabinoid system. Contrary to some beliefs, cannabidiol will not get you high. It actually can bring you down from a high by counteracting the effects of THC.
This is another chemical found in our CBD oil. On the label, it is called CBDa. In testing, cannabidiolic acid is obtained from CBD after a process called decarboxylation is completed.
Cannabidivarin is a chemical homolog of CBD. It is known to improve the anticonvulsant effect of CBD.
This chemical is rarely found in a cannabis plant and is a non-psychoactive chemical. Cannabichromene levels are usually low, with levels typically being less than 1%.
CBD lab tests not only test for levels of cannabinoids, but they ensure the final product is free of any pesticides and high levels of heavy metals.
You will only get the full benefit if all the cannabinoids mentioned above are present in the oil.
Knowing what we test for is essential, but it will not help you if you can't analyze the results. The cannabinoid profile is the first thing to examine when looking over test results. What you expect to see will differ from product to product. A full-spectrum product will have CBD, THC, and other lesser-known cannabinoids.
Full-spectrum cannabis oil with only one cannabinoid listed should make you question the quality of that product.
Broad-spectrum products will show all cannabinoids except THC. When analyzing this label, make sure the manufacturer claims are the same as the report.
Another thing to look for is the terpene profile. Every broad and full-spectrum product should have terpenes. If the product is an isolated chemical, then there should be no terpenes listed. Terpenes have a listing measured in parts per million.
