I talk to everyone I can about product testing and safety. The cannabis industry is often called the, "Wild, Wild, West." This is no joke, really. This industry is booming and lack of regulation causes confused pet parents to purchase something that isn't safe for their hound.
A CoA should be around 4-8 pages. This document includes a full analysis of the sample provided. Beginning with molecular profile we analyze the cannabinoids and terpenes present. Once we identify what "medicine" is in the product we can dig deeper and match different profiles with different ailments. Cannabis consumers choose different strains to provide various forms of relief. In an ideal world we will be able to offer similar services to canines with hemp. Note that our CoA is provided and contains 9 total cannabinoids.
The CoA doesn't stop there. As we flip onto (*around*) page 3 we begin to see words like, "Acephate, Isobutane, Methanol, Xylenes," and so many more. These pages are testing to ensure freedom from heavy metals, pesticides, and solvents. Processors have numerous ways they can extract oils from hemp. In addition to the plant absorbing contaminants in the soil, the process used to extract can also play a vital role in testing results. It is crucial that hemp is sourced from a reputable processor that values their clients safety above all else.
