Third-party lab testing is performed by a professional laboratory that is not affiliated with the company selling the CBD product. This produces a certificate of analysis (COA) that shows the potency, present ingredients, and safety profile of the CBD products. The best companies make these COAs easy to access. For example, at AroMed Essentials, we publish a COA for each of our CBD products online from CATTIS Scientific.
Hemp grown on organic farms is going to yield the purest, most trustworthy end product. These farms don’t use chemical fertilizers or unnatural agents in cultivation, during harvest, or anywhere near their hemp plants. At AroMed, we partner with local farms like Wilson herb farm and Quintessential Farm, both of which are Certified Organic.
Cannabidiol is a valuable derivative of hemp, but so are other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the plant. In fact, CBD may offer more profound effects when these other agents are together due to what scientists refer to as the entourage effect.
