As one of more than 1500 manufacturers of CBD products in the world, it is safe to assume that the market is full of confusion, uncertainty, and misinformation.

The operatives of product execution are often cheap, low quality, and come from questionable sources that include home lab environments, kitchens, and unsanitary conditions.

Labels, while seemingly transparent, often are not, with false potency indications, untraceable batch and lot codes, and misleading details of ingredients and additives that often find their way into the product unbeknownst to the consumer. 

The world of CBD Oil has found its way into drug stores, major retailers, grocery outlets, and online portals all claiming to be rich in potency, safe in the extraction, and always the “BEST”.

Are they really?

The truth is, probably not. 

Very few brands in the CBD space are what they say they are as most make the claims, but few have the means to prove it!

Certified Organic Hemp, Explained

The reality is that organic certified hemp is not as common as all those labels would suggest. While many brands use “organically grown” in their marketing materials, swearing to the consumer that the products are grown using organic methods.

This, right here, is the disconnect!

Using “organic” nomenclature does not make it necessarily true.

Most farmers, commonly rushing to bring the acreage to harvest, use farming practices that use synthetic fertilizers.

Water-soluble by nature, these products must be reapplied after watering or rain, and with the application cycles, the plant is naturally remediating the fertilizer from the soil, compromising the organic status, as water runoff often carries away the compounds of the fertilizer creating an accumulation of cadmium and other heavy metals in the soil.

When this happens, there is often over-saturation of nutrients thereby compromising natural organisms.
When real and true organic measures of farming are introduced, the healthy soil results in better binding as well as runoff loss prevention.

Fertile organic soil maximizes the natural resources of the soil ecosystem, holding the roots and providing the ideal environment for bacteria, fungi, insects, and animals. The result of this is a nutrient-dense PH balanced soil. Add to this the practice of organic mulch and plant cover, yielding a higher quality soil that does a better job of maintaining water levels and nutrients.

To date, products tested in market return heavy metals, molds, pesticides, and chemical residues in many finished products. This is the result often, of the farming practices, and the nature of the plant to remediate the soil in which it grows.

When can hemp legally be called, “certified organic hemp”?

The USDA will only provide organic certification for qualified industrial hemp. The acquisition of the certification is a stringent process.

In order for hemp to be USDA Organic certified, like Cannabidiol Life’s, a farm must go through an extensive audit.  This includes:

  • numerous tests
  • trials
  • associated fees
  • mandate a “certifying agent” to grant them the USDA certification
  • Organic System Plan (created by the farm) designed to outline the strategy of the operation, clearly identifying the intention of the operation to meet compliance for organic standards including all preventive practices to control contamination, commingling, and any cross-pollination

Inspections often ensue to ensure the practices are being executed in full-scope; a process that can take up to 3 years!

Once the requirements have been met and proven, a certificate is issued.

The certificate identifies both the organic quality of the product’s source as well as the quality of the hemp’s industrial processes.

CBD product potency and reliability is often tested using a third-party lab and includes three panels. These panels cover potency, microbes, macros, and heavy metals and solvents. The independent third-party lab certifies the authenticity of the product, and moreover the safety of the product to the consumer.

The industry is still widely unregulated, despite state regulations and mandates, there has yet to be a standardized practice that is universal to the industry. We are subject to our self-regulation and maintaining our own “Gold Standard” for quality control, product effectiveness, and CBD experience.

SUMMARY

Cannabidiol Life takes great pride in formulating our products using only USDA Certified Organic Hemp. We proudly perform third-party lab tests, which can be found on our website and traced by QR code on every bottle that goes out the door.

We stand firm in the principal that your CBD products should be transparent and safe and should be something that can be verified with ease.

Hey, I have really bad anxeity and I’m looking for a relief. I’ve been using cbd for a long time and it does not really help. Yesterday I heard about cbg and I saw a lot of positive reviews. I’m really scared of mental health issues. I have really bad experience with thc, and I herd that cbg effects are similar to thc effects. Do u have any experience with cbg and do u think that is safe?
