You never know what you’re going to get unless you do a little research. Making an educated decision on which CBD products are right for you can be overwhelming in an ever-expanding and unregulated market. Don’t stress! We are here to help! We have outlined some valuable information that we believe to be the most important factors when purchasing CBD in the open market.
All-Natural or No Thank You!
Here at Quanta, we believe that nature knows best and we want to use our patented technology to make it even better. We use all-natural ingredients (whenever we can) in all of our CBD products to promote a holistic approach and experience for all of our users. Unfortunately, many other CBD companies do not have the same quality standards and passion for all-natural living. This is why we have made this the number one item on our list because if the product isn’t all-natural chances are they have replaced those ingredients with synthetic coolants, stabilizers or preservatives. These synthetic chemicals can create unwanted side effects and create a negative association with CBD. When the reality is, when paired with the right all-natural ingredients CBD can create a feeling of relief that is second to none. This is especially important for those using CBD products consistently because there will be a slow build-up of these foreign chemicals in the body that could potentially lead to long term side effects in the future.
Dosage and Potency:
Due to our Patented Technology whenever you see a Mg serving on Quanta products you can apply a 5X to that figure in order to get an accurate comparison to other CBD brands on the market.It is extremely important to take into account both the dose and potency of the CBD in your products. The potency will have to do with the quality of the oil that was used and the dose is the actual Mg per serving. The potency can be easily determined by the overall % of CBD in the oil used for that specific product.
A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is a document from an accredited laboratory that shows the number of various cannabinoids in a product. Most CBD companies include a QR code on their packaging that will direct you to their COA for that batch of products. But getting your hands on one before purchasing could take you reaching out directly to the company to take a look. If you can’t get a COA from the manufacturer’s website, customer service, or the product label, that is not a good sign. A legitimate CBD company will always take the time to get their products lab tested. Ultimately, a COA is as much for the customer as it is for the company to double-check the quality of their work for quality assurance purposes. These are the key things to be aware of when reading over a COA for a potential product you are interested in buying:
- THC content should be below 0.3% to stay within current legal limits
- It’s important to make sure the COA reflects the advertised CBD content on your product’s label.
- Cannabinoids - If the CBD product is marketed as a full or broad spectrum then the COA should show that the product contains at least small amounts of CBDa, CBG, CBC, CBN, and/or other cannabinoids, in addition to CBD.
- Third-Party Lab Tested You always want to make sure the companies COAs come from an accredited third-party lab in order to remove any doubt in biased information included in the lab test.
