VAN NUYS, CA — Third-party lab testing of a variety of commercially available CBD products finds that many contain only trace quantities of cannabidiol, according to an analysis first reported by BusinessInsider.com.
Representatives from CannaSafe Laboratories, a California-based analytical testing company, assessed 20 CBD-infused products, including vape cartridges, beverages, edibles, and skin creams. Only three of the 20 products contained levels of CBD matching the percentages advertised on their label.
Authors of the report also identified the presence of ethylene oxide and other potentially harmful solvents in some products.
The results are consistent with those of previous reports — such as those here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here — which similarly determined that many commercially available CBD-infused products are of variable potency and may contain adulterants.
