What is the Certificate of Analysis?

A lab report that details the contents of our cbd oil. This report is conducted by a 3rd party lab and breaks down what exists in each bottle of cbd oil. 

Why would I need a Certificate of Analysis?

As the cbd industry becomes a proven method of healing, we believe patients deserve the right to understand what chemical compounds exist in their bottle of cbd oil. These lab reports allow patients to pass along certified credentials to physicians and health providers who can instruct patients how to proceed if medications are currently being prescribed. 

How to understand the Certificate of Analysis?

Below is a summary of what you will see when reading the CofA:

ND = "Not Detect", meaning there was no traces of this chemical compound found in the sample tested.

NT = "Not Tested", meaning this portion of lab test was not part of the test. Exclusions exist when test is of little significance to end user.

CBDACBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is one of many compounds produced by cannabis and hemp. Abundant in the live plants of CBD varieties, it converts to the better known cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol) over time and when exposed to heat.

CBG = CBG has been found to act on very specific physiological systems and problems, and results for medicinal use are promising:

  • Powerful vasodilator and has neuroprotective effects to boot
  • Shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington's disease, which is characterized by nerve cell degeneration in the brain
  • Shown to block receptors that cause cancer cell growth
  • European research shows evidence that CBG is an effective antibacterial agent, particularly against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) microbial strains resistant to several classes of drugs

CBDVCBDV, or cannabidivarin, is one of many molecules derived from cannabis and hemp plants. These molecules, commonly referred to as cannabinoids, are partially responsible for the many effects and therapeutic benefits cannabis has to offer.

CBNCBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages. For that reason, it’s usually present in high amounts in older cannabis. While this might be a turn-off for some, others seek out older cannabis just to enjoy the effects of CBN. Acts as an Antibacterial and Neuroprotectant.

CBGA = CBGA performs a protective function for cannabis, CBGA is produced in the plant’s  trichomes and triggers targeted plant cell necrosis for natural leaf pruning to allow the plant to maximize energy directed toward the flower. Used to help combat cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, and colon cancer.

CBCCBC has the same origins as both THC and CBD do in that they all stem from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). Below are some of the potential benefits:

  • Cancer Fighter: Cannabichromene may be a powerful cancer fighter, and the reason might be its interaction with the body’s natural endocannabinoid, anandamide.
  • Pain Fighter: Cannabichromene has been shown to block pain and inflammation associated with collagen-induced osteoarthritis.
  • Brain Cells: In a 2013 mouse study, CBC had a positive effect on neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs), a cell essential to healthy brain function.
