At Canndid, we want to bring you good-quality CBD products. From our oils to our edibles, all our products undergo testing at our internal lab, and at a third-party facility. This ensures that they meet our standards – and yours.
View all our reports here, or download them directly from the product page.
We want to make sure that you’re getting what you pay for. Therefore, at Canndid, we test each batch for CBD content and purity. This helps to establish that our products contain the advertised amount of CBD.
We also test for THC content. By doing this, we can ensure that our products are compliant with UK guidelines. In the UK, CBD products can only contain up to 1 mg of THC, in total. We want to assure our customers that our products fall well within these guidelines.
By testing our products, we can establish that our products comply with legal THC limits. As a result, you can safely consume them without fear of psychoactives.
Do We Test for Heavy Metals?
At Canndid, we want to assure you that our products are completely safe to use. Because of this, we test all our goods for heavy metal content – but what are they? Heavy metals generally comprise of arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury.
Most third-party lab reports explore the permitted amount in a sample – more commonly referred to as the Use Limit. If tests don’t detect these heavy metals, the report will read, “ND” or Not Detected.
We test for heavy metals because cannabis and hemp plants are often touted for their soil-clearing capabilities. They’re also known for their efficacy at absorbing heavy metals. Therefore, sometimes, hemp can contain heavy metals, even when grown by a licensed grower.
With third-party testing, we can establish whether or not our products contain heavy metals, and if they’re safe to consume.
What Is CBD?
In our lab reports, we test for CBD levels. But what is it, exactly? Also known as cannabidiol, CBD usually comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant. Anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD could have a variety of health benefits.
In the UK, however, we source our CBD from hemp plants. This helps ensure that we comply with THC levels, as hemp plants contain far lower levels of THC than the cannabis plants do.
What Is THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol – more commonly known as THC – is a psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. In large doses, THC can make you feel high. Therefore, under UK legislation, THC is a controlled substance.
Because of this, CBD products can only contain a maximum of 1 mg of THC, per product. While hemp plants are naturally low in THC, they must also only contain up to 0.3 mg of THC. By testing our products, we’re able to ensure that their THC levels fall well within UK guidelines.
What Is CBG?
Also known as cannabigerol, CBG is a lesser cannabinoid. This means that the cannabis plant only contains low levels of CBG. While this might not seem like much at the moment, results are encouraging.
Animal studies show that CBG could interact with specific physiological systems. So far, CBG seems to exhibit neuroprotective qualities in mice with Huntington’s disease. It also could potentially slow the development of colon cancer in mice.
Based on these results, scientists now want to explore its properties in detail.
Why Are Our Lab Reports Publicly Available?
At Canndid, we want to do things our way. We understand the importance of transparency, especially when it comes to our customers. Therefore, we want to give you access to our lab reports.
By reading these reports, you’ll get an idea of what you’re purchasing. You can also verify that you’re getting the exact amount of CBD advertised in these products, free from harmful additives.
What Is a COA?
CBD manufacturers get a COA (or a Certificate of Analysis) from a third-party laboratory. It displays the quantities of cannabinoids tested and found in a CBD product. Our product COAs list the test results, so you can verify that you’re getting what you pay for.
How to Read CBD Product Lab Reports
Reading a CBD lab report is fairly simple, once you get the hang of it. First, identify the sample information at the top of the page. This should tell you the product name and the batch number. You can also cross-reference this with your product label.
Then, look for the metrics. This will tell you the amount of THC, which should clock in at far less than 1 mg. It will also tell you the total per cent of CBD, as well as how many milligrams the bottle contains.
Now, look for the cannabinoids test. In this section, you’ll be able to establish the number of milligrams of each cannabinoid in every product.
Where Can You Find Our Lab Reports?
You can find our lab reports right here, on the Canndid website. Look for our product page, and then scroll down to the product description. You’ll be able to download or view a copy of our lab report there, and cross-reference it with the details on your product label.
