What is a CBD Certificate of Analysis?
At CFH, all our products are made from our full spectrum hemp flower extract. A CoA is a Certificate of Analysis from a fully vetted third party lab that provides extensive information on our individual products. Our CoAs reveal the robust profile of cannabinoids and terpenes that exist in a full spectrum product line. CoAs also test for pesticides, heavy metals and other unwanted elements to insure the safety and efficacy of our products.

Why is a Certificate of Analysis prepared and how is it utilized?
COAs should be prepared by 3rd party laboratories. These certificates of analysis are very important because the Hemp plant is a bioremediator. This means that the hemp plant can pull harmful compounds up from the soil and accumulate them in the plant, so it is important that the raw material and end product are tested. A COA verifies the safety, potency, purity, compliance and label claim. Certificates of Analysis offer full transparency for consumers. Consumers should utilize COAs to understand exactly what is in the products they are using, what kind of testing was performed and the results of that testing. It is always best to purchase products that include only Full Spectrum Hemp Flower Oil that has been grown from a single location and has conducted in depth analysis like those that CFH, Ltd. performs.
