CanaBD’s mission is to create a regulated, safe and secure marketplace so our CBD consumers know they are getting only the highest- quality CBD products. As such, we have created a regulatory framework to ensure all of our products meet the highest possible standards. Our products are:
Grown in the US, UK and EU under strict production & QA guidelines
We ensure our all of our hemp oil is derived from organic and legal hemp farms in the US, UK and EU. CanaBD only sells products that are produced under strict supervision and have passed quality assurance tests.
Since CBD is a product of hemp leaves and flowers, it is a natural product by definition. However, some products include synthetic CBD oil.
The effects of synthetic CBD oil is dangerous because it has not been thoroughly researched. Products containing 100% pure CBD are known to be safe for therapeutic uses and have minimal to no side effects.
To ensure that the CBD is organic in our CBD capsules, oils, and edibles, it has to be sourced from organically grown hemp plants. In the US, for instance, organic hemp must meet a range of FDA criteria to be certified organic that extends farther than simply avoiding pesticides and being non-GMO. Organic hemp must also be grown in clean, healthy soil free of heavy metals and toxins. While healthy soil is essential for all plants, it’s especially crucial for hemp because the hemp plant can absorb toxins from soil.
So, what is hemp exactly anyway? Simply put, hemp is a strain of the cannabis sativa plant that contains less than 0.3% THC. Therefore, hemp-derived CBD will always contain less than 0.3% THC and be non-psychoactive. In other words, it will not get you high or show up on a drug test. Marijuana, on the other hand, is a term used to classify varieties of cannabis that contain more than 0.3% THC.
Co2 extraction is a process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals from a plant. In the world of cannabis, the process pulls all of the essential cannabinoids, terpenes and flavanoids out of the plant material. Although Co2 acts like a solvent, it doesn’t have the same dangers and toxins associated with other solvents. Using Co2 is a way to create a pure, clean, quality oil which involves little to no post-processing.
Third-party lab testing
Third-party testing helps CanaBD maintain partnerships with credible sources of CBD products through transparent, unbiased test results. When a CBD product undergoes third-party testing, a sample of the product is sent off to a private lab unaffiliated with the manufacturer or distributor. There, the product is tested for the presence of various cannabinoids, potency and chemicals. For more information on our lab testing, click here.
Pesticide and herbicide-free & no additives
Pesticides and herbicides are substances used to ward off unwanted pests and weeds during the agricultural process. These are all dangerous substances that can be found in some CBD products. According to the Toxics Action Center, “Pesticides have been linked to a wide range of human health hazards, ranging from short-term impacts such as headaches and nausea to chronic impacts like cancer, reproductive harm, and endocrine disruption.” For this reason, we ensure that all of our products are free of these dangerous chemicals as well as any other additives.
