Lab Testing to Find the Highest Quality CBD Oil

When you are looking for the highest quality CBD oil, do you know what to look for? You might ask yourself does the “high quality CBD oil” you are using contain only a fraction of the CBD it states on the label? Or you might even ask yourself, “is CBD oil safe” and does your product contain toxic ingredients?

TruPotency is here to help relieve any anxiety you might have about finding the highest quality CBD oil products. We are here to guide you to safe and effective CBD and cannabinoid based products. We use third party testing to verify every product on TruPotency meets its label claim for CBD and lack of harmful chemicals.

To start looking for the best CBD oil products, first brands are vetted based on their publicly available information; We look to see if they source from organic hemp from the US, if they make available certificate of analysis for their final products, and more. After finding a brand that we think might be a good fit for TruPotency, we contact them for introduction and to receive samples of their product. After samples are received, they are then anonymized to reduce any bias in testing results. These samples are then sent to a number of different analytical laboratories for a battery of tests.

The analytical testing labs use a variety of methods to understand the composition of each product. The main analytical tests include UHPLC-DAD (or UV) for cannabinoid content and GC-FID or GCMS for terpene composition. In addition, residual solvents can be analyzed by GCMS, heavy metals by ICP-AES or ICP-MS, pesticides by LC-QQQ-MS (triple quad), and microbials by qPCR.

This sounds like a lot. And it is. But one of TruPotency’s aims is to help educate you, so you can make informed decisions and have confidence in the CBD products you use. To fully understand these testing methods, one would need a degree in chemistry or related fields, but this information can start you down the path to understanding the science behind testing cannabinoid based products.

In addition to not having toxic ingredients and the correct CBD amount, what makes something a high quality CBD oil product? The beneficial effects of CBD can be aided by an assortment of other cannabinoids and terpenes in a synergistic fashion called the “entourage effect”.

The “entourage effect” is created when cannabinoids and terpenes compounds work together to increase their biological actions; a 1 + 1 = 3 effect. TruPotency is dedicated to transparency, so all of our products list these cannabinoids and terpenes that they contain, so you know what is in your CBD oil product.
