What is a certificate of analysis?

A certificate of analysis details the chemical components of a given product after it has undergone extensive laboratory testing. In the case of products with hemp or cannabidiol, COAs outline the specific quantities of each property, and confirm that no trace of unwanted components are present. COAs are essential for any discerning, health-conscious consumer. They confirm for customers that the products they seek to purchase align with their advertised merits. COAs also affirm adherence to both health codes and applicable legal standards. The present laws state that no “Industrial Hemp” product may be sold as such if it contains more than 0.3% THC. This thorough standard of documentation eliminates uncertainty for any and all concerned parties.

Why are COAs important?

The marketing of non-psychoactive cannabinoids to the American public is a recent phenomenon, rising quickly in prominence in a few short years. With public and governmental reexamination of hemp and cannabidiol, and increasing research into the varied propensities of each substance, the consensus grows that hemp and CBD offer a multitude of benefits. As such, old stigmas and limitations are rapidly falling away.

However, with both products gaining popularity, some businesses may capitalize on the growing trend’s excitement, offering promises and standards quality that cannot (or will not) be upheld. For this reason, it is absolutely essential to confirm a company’s credibility by checking their certificate of analysis – which any reputable seller should readily provide.

It may seem overwhelming to examine formal and technical writing as a consumer. Thankfully, we are here to help you understand the documentation at hand, and make well-informed purchases that you can trust.
