The Importance of 3rd Party Testing for CBD Products



When most consumers use a CBD oil product, they are looking to take advantage of CBD’s natural wellness properties to improve their quality of life. However, if you aren’t careful, you could spend your money on products that contain little to no CBD or, even worse, pose a threat to your health. That is why the CBD Marketplace sells products that have been certified by 3rd party labs.

CBD oil products are sold as supplements in the U.S. Because of this, there is little in the way of oversight into the CBD market when it comes to verifying that products contain what they say they do or that they are even safe to take.

With hundreds of CBD products now on the shelves of health food stores and wellness shops, sold at gyms, infused into a range of consumer products, and available widely online, how do you know which CBD brands to trust for you and your family?

The best CBD brands all share an important characteristic: they are tested by a 3rd party testing lab to ensure that they contain consistent levels of active ingredients and that they are free of any contaminants that can negatively affect the health of the user.

3rd party testing protects the integrity of CBD products by verifying that they contain the levels of CBD listed on the label, so customers get the same CBD experience each time they use the product and feel confident that they are getting their money’s worth.

Thoroughly testing for contaminants is crucial for any consumer product. With hemp products, it is even more important. That is because hemp, like all cannabis plants, is an efficient bioaccumulator, meaning that it can efficiently pull and concentrate nutrients, as well as potential contaminants, from the soil. When the hemp’s oil is extracted from the plant, these contaminants can end up in dangerously high levels in finished CBD products.

To protect against health hazards from residual contaminants leached from the soil during cultivation or picked up throughout the manufacturing process, top quality CBD brands test their products using 3rd party labs to look for contaminants like heavy metals, Mycotoxins, mold, mildew, fungus, yeast, E.coli, Salmonella, toxic solvents, and more.

The CBD Marketplace only carries products that have been certified by 3rd party labs, so our customers know that they are getting only the safest and most trusted CBD products on the market.
