Many CBD companies falsely advertise about what is in their products and do not complete full third-party CBD lab testing. That will never happen with Synergy Botanicals’ CBD products because we believe in being fully transparent and proudly stand by our natural, safe, pure, high quality products! We want you to know exactly what is in our products, which is why we post all third-party testing results for you. We test all of our CBD products for Cannabinoids, Terpenes, Pesticides, Residual Solvents, Heavy Metals, Mycotoxins, and Bacteria/Yeast through a Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) licensed and accredited lab in California. Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs is a licensed testing lab that provides testing for our products using PhD Chemists trained and experienced in the hemp and cannabis industry. Complete third-party testing results for every single product we market are readily available on the Certificate of Analysis (COA).
In this article, we’ll take a look at the importance of heavy metals testing for CBD oil. We test for the most common metals that can be found in hemp plants, which can be toxic to the human body. That’s why it’s important to check that every one of our CBD products is free of them.
Why Heavy Metals Testing is Important for CBD Products
Would you pay for a product if you knew it contained Lead? We sure wouldn’t, and we’re sure you wouldn’t either! Most of us know that no amount of Lead in a product would be acceptable enough to buy, especially when that product is going to be taken orally. Ingesting products containing heavy metals can lead to serious health problems and should be avoided at all cost. In addition to lead, there are many other metals that labs will test for when testing CBD oil products.
Which Heavy Metals Does Lab Testing Identify?
When performing heavy metals testing for CBD oil products, there are several metals that can be highly toxic to the human body even in very low concentrations. The main 4 heavy metals that you should be concerned with that can be present in hemp plants are:
These metals can be highly toxic due to the human body not being able to remove these metals efficiently after exposure. They can accumulate over time and this extended exposure and build up in your body is a major concern.
This is why these four heavy metals should be evaluated and tested for in all oral CBD products. As mentioned before, the only way to know for sure if heavy metals are in the product you are about to take is to look at a COA test report provided by a third-party that has tested that specific company’s product and check if the company has tested for heavy metals.
Synergy Botanicals Conducts Heavy Metals Testing on All Our CBD Oil Products
Always double check for a COA and look for heavy metal testing before purchasing any CBD product! Look for the symbol ‘ND,’ which means ‘not detected.’ This is what you want to see to ensure a clean product for safety testing like heavy metal screening. Also make sure the limits of quantification (LOQ) and limits of detection (LOD) are listed in ppm or ug/g to ensure an accurate test.
