How Do I Know I’m Getting a Quality Hemp Oil (CBD Oil) Product?
Money doesn’t grow on trees. Whenever you buy anything, you want to know that you’re spending your money on something which is made of quality. Of course, you also want to know that it is effective, it’s going to do what it says on the tin and that the ingredients are from the best possible sources.
The problem is, unless you can read ingredient labels very carefully and you understand all the abbreviations and industry speak, it can be hard to really be 100% sure that what you’re getting is the best of the best.
When you buy CBD oil from Loyal Leaf CBD, we do our best to minimize the industry speak and really tell you straight. Nobody wants to be confused by a label!
Let’s be honest, many people do not understand what CBD oil is, and there is a certain amount of misunderstanding. For starters, our CBD oil which is derived from hemp is not going to get you high, because our products contain less than 0.3% THC.
So, now let’s talk about ingredients.
The Importance of a Certificate of Analysis (CoA)
The only way you’re going to know that the CBD oil you are purchasing is of a high quality is by checking things out very carefully. Any quality CBD oil should come with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) aka 3rd part lab tests. Why? Because you are not an expert in this field, and you need to know that what you are buying is safe, is good quality, and is effective. This certificate will give you important information about the product, including the results of the tests which were carried out by a 3rd party laboratory.
These tests include:
- Tests for cannabinoid profile and strength (potency).
- “Passing” levels of the following:
- Heavy metals
- Microbiological contaminants (bacteria, yeast & mold)
- E. coli & Salmonella
- Volatile organic compounds
In addition, your CoA will tell you if your product was made with broad-spectrum hemp extract or the less beneficial CBD isolate. We use broad-spectrum hemp, which is also organic.
You should never purchase anything in which you’re not sure of. It’s really that simple. By knowing what you’re getting, you can rest much more easily and know that the CBD oil you use is safe and effective. If you want to check any of our products before you splash the cash, you can access all our CoA’s online too.
Never buy any hemp oil (CBD oil) that doesn’t have all of this information attached to it. You wouldn’t buy a car without all the necessary paperwork, so it’s a good idea to apply the same line of thinking to your CBD oil needs. Your health depends on it!
