SAN ANTONIO – The oil of the CBD, also known as cannabinoid oil, is derived from substances released from the hemp plant. As of January 1, 2019, it became legitimate to sell CBD oil with THC, but it has up to 0.3% or less
CBD oil is in demand, exhibited as a panacea for common illnesses such as pain, inflammation and anxiety.
"Well, it throws the edge," said the CBD oil user, Tod Hargroder. "I mean, that helps me with pain in nerves."
At 52, Hargroder spent more than half of his life in a wheelchair after a motorcycle accident in 1986. – said Hargroder. "I went through the grate and this led to the injury of the C56 spinal cord."
He made a switch 4 years ago from traditional drugs to CBD-oil, but he is worried about the lack of supervision in the current the rapid industry sector.
"I believe there is a lot of uncertainty for the average person, how clean it is,
Pesticides, residual solvents and heavy metals are all pollutants. The String Gauge Laboratory Researcher, Caleb King, has found in various laboratory tests over the past several years. One and the same strength, 250 milligrams per bottle and sent to the Steep Hill laboratory in Berkeley, California.
One by one, they were tested for potency, pesticides, THC and the amount of cannabinoids.
Only 2 out of 5 products tested just as it is marked : Hemplucid brand and its hometown,
The widely used KOI brand was TGK and pesticide free as advertised, but it did not justify potency (195 mg instead of 250 mg).
In response, KOI wrote, "For a specific potency analysis, our the laboratory collects a sampling size of 10X industry standard, thus, is a more representative sample. Not knowing the exact analytical methodologies, protocols, standards and tools that are used, it is difficult to determine where and why the changes have occurred. "
Remedy, the local mark of the Botanical Shoppe White Label is being tested as 250 mg, TGC is free and free of pesticides, but it should be noted that it was marked as "full spectrum" on the bottle.
Nevertheless, the results of our test showed only 1 cannabinoid, except for the CBD,
wants more cannabinoids there, "King said." If Oh, they are talking about the full spectrum, I would like to see small amounts of CBD, CBDA, sour forms that I mentioned, and besides, I would like to see there CBN. "
In response, the Bothean Shoppe, which manufactures Remedy, said that they do not have a laboratory report that contradicts the Steephill Lab report, but they plan to start testing in April.
The company also decided to remove the wording, "full spectrum" in future batches of oil
The latest version of News 4, tested by Veritas Farms, had a minimum of 2 different pesticides, but was still considered to be passing under the California state.
trace amounts of TGK (.01%), although the company's certificate of analysis showed that there should not be any TGK.
The bottle does not say anything about TGC, but it speaks of a full spectrum.
 The head of Veritas Farms said that labeling, the full spectrum, would mean that THC would be included, although the definition of the full spectrum did not fit within the industry.
The bottle does not say anything about THC, but it says "Full spectrum."
"Some people may not want to swallow even a small amount of psychoactive material," King said. "Some people have sensitivity to TGCs at very low concentrations and may cause side effects."
Although taking small amounts of THC is legal, it can lead to troubles at work. the amount of TGK can be detected on a drug test, and there are many factors such as the time span and type of sample, such as urine, blood or hair.
Last year there were references to the CBD through pesticides and faulty laboratory practices, but not with the testing of brands News 4.
Fake and synthetic products are also a problem.
He also recommends asking for a certificate of analysis, or a batch lab report for any bottle you buy.
All brands we tested ranged from $ 40 to $ 50 per 30 ml bottle. 19659002] ** * KOI sent this application in response to our test results:
Understanding the accuracy and reliability of the test results is important for the quality control process of cannabis produced. Through the federal ban on cannabis, indicate specific provisions for cannabis and the lack of standardization between the analytical methodologies, the differences between the results of laboratory testing are a daily challenge for the manufacturers of products.It is important that manufacturers be associated with fully accredited and state licensed testing laboratories.
Our laboratory is fully accredited by Perry Johnson Laboratory, Inc. from the Pharmaceutical to Food Safety. We are accredited in all tests required by the state of California:
-Cannabinoid Potential Analysis,
– Interactive Analysis
-weight Ke metals
In addition to the standards dictated by our Perry Johnson ISO / IEC accreditation, our standards come from the American Pharmacopoeia and the Canbis Control Bureau. By BCC rules, we are participating in the qualification test for all third-party tests (Emerald Test by Emerald Scientific). For each analysis, we use Emerald Badges
For the analysis of potentials, our lab collects a sample size that is 10 times higher than the industry standard of California, thus, is a more representative sample. When we collect samples for testing, we do this gradually based on the size of the completed batch, which leads to a more representative sample.
Without knowing the exact analytical methodologies, protocols, standards and tools used, it is difficult to determine where and why the changes took place.
*** Removal Manufacturer, Botanical Shop sent this statement in response to our results:
We can understand the potential confusion to the full spectrum / and / or wide range. On our free TGK line, with TGC (0.3%), we change the wording on the label based on the possibility of confusion, although the full spectrum was approved by the wording of our extractor. Thank you for constructive criticism, as we strive to be the most transparent and reliable source of the CBD
With the stores and retailers in the CBD that are around the city, we are grateful that News 4 has decided to conduct testing and journalistic investigations. At present, industry, as a whole, is unregulated by the Wild West as such.
The CBD is marketed at gas stations, vape stores, main stores and other retail locations as an addition to its current business with no retail outlets with due diligence on products and / or education. Botanical Shoppe is proud to have a third-party certificate for all of our CBD consultants to provide the right information for our valued customers. In addition, Botanical Shopper was the first to provide laboratory reports published online and in stores. We value feedback with transparency and value to provide the best experience for our customers. Nevertheless, the Botanical Shop is always trying to improve the process to support experts in the rapidly growing industry. For example, our third-party tests are consistent with your findings, but there are 400 cannabinoids in the cannabis (non-hemp industrial production), and both tests are only tested on 12 cannabinoids. Beginning in April, our new independent laboratory, with their own testing process, will begin to test all cannabinoids in our patented hemp strain. We're excited to be the first company in Texas that offers a wide range of testing and will be tested on News 4 upon receipt.
*** A VERITAS FARMS explained that the certificate of certificate (0%) is a specific batch of oil from CBD, which is unusual, as usually all THDs are present in all of its CBD oils.
He does not talk about TGC on a bottle, but it's about the full spectrum.
The company also added that all their oils are full spectrum, which means that they include various cannabinoids, including TGCs.
They explained that the Colorado Laboratory was somewhat different from the California lab at the detection thresholds, which could explain why one test result was 0% TGC and another one .01% TGC.
