CBD Oil And Third Party Testing: What Does It Really Mean

Test Tubes At Lab

With the recent spike in CBD Oil manufacturers, one has to wonder about the quality of the oil they are buying. If you have been shopping for CBD lately you will notice lot of companies offering a Third Party Test result to prove the quality of their CBD products.

Well, what exactly is a “third party test”, and who preforms them? Are they required, as one would think? Just how accurate are they? Who regulates all of this in the first place?

Having the third party test results is supposed to make you feel secure, according to the manufacturer. But if you don’t know what one is, or what it is supposed to contain in the first place, the report will do you no good.

These are some of the many questions that I think we as consumers, need answers to!

What Is Third Party Testing?

When it comes to CBD and other drugs, third party testing is done in a laboratory by certified scientist. They break down the components of the cannabis oil to find how much of each cannabinoid is in the oil being tested.

With the laws varying so much between states, this is a very important report!

The best third party test to see as a consumer is an independent third party test result. This means that the laboratory is not in connection with the manufacturer or the consumer, so they have a completely bias report. In other words, the outcome of the results will not benefit the laboratory in any way, so there is no reason to favor either side.

Is Third Party Testing Required And Who Preforms Them?

There is no testing required for any CBD products. This I found hard to believe! But it is true.

There are several labs that manufacturers can choose from to preform their CBD level test. Independent labs are reputable, and are more likely to give the biased opinion you, the consumer, are looking for.

EVIO Labs is one of the many labs used by Diamond, as is ProVerde, and Reseach Triangle Park Laboratories, Inc. These three laboratories are the top in the nation.

EVIO Labs is the leading national provider of accredited testing. This is one very professional and busy laboratory, working with both the agricultural and biomedical industries.

ProVerde, is probably EVIO’s biggest competitor right now in the cannabis testing field. They both offer quality test and results, and both have outstanding scientists on their staffs.

Research Triangle Park Laboratories, Inc. test for all sorts of things, like pesticides, contamination, toxic chemicals VOCs; banned substances, and product purity.

Are Third Party Test Results Accurate, Who Regulates This?

The FDA recommends that consumers be cautious of whom they buy their CBD products from, as they are not regulated by the FDA.

Some of the companies out there are not being forth coming about the actual CBD contents of their oils. While there is no real regulation of these oils the FDA has been stepping in and randomly testing products.

The FDA has found some companies that are not completely honest about their CBD levels. They have sent these companies warning letters, to let them know they are not in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

They give them 15 business days to improve their product, or to give a time line in which their product will be improved, otherwise, the FDA shuts them down with possible fines.

So, while there is no official regulation, we do at least have the FDA stepping in and randomly checking these companies out for honesty.

We as consumers need this, after all, this is a supplement claiming to support some major health benefits, and it is not completely cheap.

Companies With Independent Third Party Tested Products

Doing the leg work is what I am here for, I have been looking for trusted CBD companies to promote on my site and I definitely have been picking the right ones.

So far every single company that I have done reviews for are independently third party tested. There was only one manufacturer that did not show the lab results, CBD Essence.

With CBD Essence, their lab report is not yet available to the public so I did not include their logo. They are third party tested, but I sure do like to see the certificate! I can research the lab to find out if it is independently owned, but only if I have the name.

 

Diamond CBD Link

Diamond CBD is one of the safe companies to order from. Some of their products have multiple test results from different labs. That goes above and beyond for quality assurance in my opinion. Diamond even provides a report from Toxicology Associates, Inc. to prove there is nothing to get you high in their products.

 

GGH LLC logo and link
GoGreen Hemp is also a safe company to buy from. They do not say Independent third party, but they are. Upon looking at their lab certification I noticed that Diamond used the same lab for some of their products, ProVerde .

 

Made By Hemp logo and link
Made By Hemp, Tasty Hemp Oil, is yet another reputable CBD manufacturer. This manufacturer also used common labs for testing as Diamond and GoGreen Hemp.

All three readily display tab links to their lab results, this is a very important thing. Not only so you know that you are getting what you paid for, but also so you can prove what the contents are in your cannabis oil in case you’re in a not so cannabis friendly state.

CBD made from hemp is legal in all 50 states, marijuana is a totally different story though. And being able to prove that there is little to no THC is imperative for legal purposes.

Shopping For Quality CBD Made Easier With A Little Help

With so many choices of CBD manufacturers, it is hard enough to make a decision between them for prices, worrying about the quality of the product you are buying is just as important.

Make sure you have a third party test and preferably an independent one at that. After that, it is all in what form you want to take your CBD in, and what fits in your budget the best.

I know the four companies I listed above will be very safe choices for quality and purity. Feel free to follow any of their links and check them all out. Pick which one is best for you and place an order today!

I hope my article helps you find the quality CBD products you’re looking for. Please feel free to leave a comment below. I would love to hear your opinion on third party testing CBD products.

As always, thank you for reading my article.

Tasty Hemp Oil: CBD Hemp Oil Products Review

tasty cbd oil

Why and how does CBD work in the first place? Well, to make a long story short, we all have what is called an endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of CB receptors that are located in our brains, nervous systems, and other areas in our bodies. Certain phytocannabinoids like CBD react with these receptors in many beneficial ways.

In a nut shell that is how and why it works. endocannabinoid system receptor points

When you are looking for quality made CBD oils, you have to do a lot of research. If you are not sure what to look for, it can be confusing with all the flashy ads and promotions waving in your face and no real product information.

I have done the research for you on Tasty Hemp Oil’s CBD products. All their products are of the highest quality, Tasty Hemp Oil takes pride in the work they do and the product they create in Jenison, Michigan.

CBD Essence Products Review

There are so many forms to get the powerful CBD, you can choose the one that is right for you or that you prefer. CBD Essence has a wonderful line of products to choose from.

They are all third party tested for purity and strength. CBD Essence also does not use pesticides, this is so very important! No one wants pesticide remnants in their CBD products much less anything else.

These products all boast about increasing the value of life in some form for almost every user, with little to no bad side effects reported by most. Personally that makes it a grade A product for me.

I am not a doctor or a scientist so I will not make any claims as to what this product will do for you, but I will say what others have said it does for them, also I will give my opinion of the product.

I have a dear friend that has epilepsy, she uses the Hemp CBD and the Medical CBD with THC and she says that she is feeling better than ever and barely takes any prescription medications. For the most part, she just uses her oils, she speaks with her physicians regularly, and they are totally on board with her treatment choice, and are monitoring her progress with her.

My neighbor just started using CBD Essence Hemp oil for her back injury, after consulting with her physician about its uses.  Just the other day she told me  how much better not only her back was feeling, but also that she was able to concentrate and focus better. In all she said she just felt better all the way around and had stopped taking the prescribed pain killers after like the second day.

If these oils can help people like this, and they work the same for everyone, there is no reason it shouldn’t be used in conjunction or in place of prescription medication with physician approval.

 CBD Essence Edible Oil Tincture 

Tinctures are oil drop extracts that are blended with a host or carrier oil. You can find them in a variety of flavors, which means you can either directly ingest the oil or still mix it with food or drinks.

With most hemp CBD products all the inguredients are natural and organic. They are also 100% vegan, generally pesticide free and tested for potency and purity, as claimed by each company.

I like this product for many reasons, CBD Essence keeps it all natural and organic. The oil is blended with other natural oils as the host and then combined with other natural flavors like cinnamon, peppermint, orange, citrus, and natural (unflavored), and more, for an end product that is not only tasty and easy to take, but is also very effective.

Gel Caps

This is the quick and easy way to take your CDB, you can take it on the go or while lounging around the house. If you do not wish to use the oil products but still want the great benefits this is the way to go for sure. And a more accurate dosing as well, without measuring.

Gelatin Capsules can be purchased in a variety dose strengths. It depends on your particular needs or desires.

Hemp CBD Cartridges

For the guy or gal that really just wants to vape their daily dose of CBD oil, there pre-filled cartridges. I would even try vaping with these, whereas right now I take a negative view on vaping. But I would consider vaping CBD Oil versus the crap they sell in the average vape juice.

I have thought about trying to quit smoking by replacing my cigarettes with the vape, but I am not so sure about vaping in general. I would consider it a little more with these options, but its still not on the table for me.

I found cartridges available at GoGreen Hemp.com. They are a very awesome company as well. All of their products are natural, and they grow their hemp in Colorado totally pesticide free!

Dog Soft Chewable Bites

We are just as finicky about what medicine we give our pets as they are about taking there medicine. Personally my dogs medicine has to taste good and not be a pill.

Amazon offers a large variety of hemp based dog supplements.The One I liked for my fur babies is Point Pet Natural Hip and Joint Supplement.

I have tried so many products over the past couple of years as my fur babies are not quite babies anymore as much as they are seniors.

I have found that soft, meat flavored chewy bites work the best as there teeth are not quite what they used to be either, and they are finicky about what they eat from the “medicine shelf”. Yes they know what that is, and the difference between snack shelf and medicine shelf.

My fur babies liked the Point Pet Hemp Immunity Support chews I found shopping around online.

Needless to say pet CBD chewy bites are really comparable in price to other quality supplements for joint aches that contain no CBD qualities. With the CBD, your pet gets so much more and they feel better in the long run.

Knowing that the medicine you give them is all natural, you will feel better in the long run as well. CBD is claimed to help your pet with a list of issues like pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, age related issues, and overall health.

I would choose hemp dog chewy bites because a lot of care goes into the making of hemp CBD products to ensure quality and customer satisfaction. This includes furry customers as well as is not so furry ones.

Why These Products Are Important To Me

I actually plan to start a regimen of hemp CBD which contains no THC. As I am getting older I have had a few minor chronic aches and pains that have sprouted up and if I can take a CBD Essence

natural supplement like this to ease them versus over the counter pain relievers or prescription pain relievers, I would prefer the natural given the option.

Even though there is no scientific facts to back up the medical claims yet, as this takes time to get true full answers, if there is the slightest chance that CBD oil has the ability to stop cancer from forming or slow it’s progress after it has formed, I am personally interested in trying it.

Cancer runs in both sides of my family and being a single mom, I want to be here for my daughter for a long time. If taking CBD oil increases my chances, I am in it to win it!!!

I would love to hear some opinions or comments about my site. Please feel free to leave comments below.

MediPets CBD and Our Fur Babies: Is It Good For Them Too

Large Black Lab

The first thing that we should all keep in mind is that, we are not going to make our pets live forever, no matter what supplement we feel fit to give them. All we can hope for is a better quality life in exchange. With that being said, I have found some very interesting information on the CBD products offered for our furry friends. These products make no medical claims, as they are supplements, and are intended to be used as such.

Okay, so researching this subject was educational, and interesting. The main question asked is, are these safe for my pets? The answer is yes, as long as there is little to no THC in the CBD oils or treats, they are perfectly safe for your fur baby. Our furry friends are more sensitive to THC and can have adverse reactions and episodes of hysteria and or psychosis. No one wants that!!

While CBD oils are being found to be helpful to humans, they are just as helpful to animals. We all have CB receptors that the CBD and other cannabinoids attach to for the benefits to work, well our pets have them too. Without these CB receptors, the hemp plant and marijuana plant would have no effect on us, it would be just like any other plant.

The next question is, how do I know how much to give my pet? Each bottle is labeled with instructions, and on Diamond’s site there are dosing charts, lab results, how to use, and more for each product. This makes for ease in ordering the correct mg’s and dose for your pet, as well as ease in the amount to give and how to administer it.

There are many things CBD helps with in pets, it can help:

  • reduce stress
  • anxieties
  • depression
  • pain and joint stiffness
  • aggression disorders
  • excess barking
  • cognitive issues

...and much more.

Your pet could actually benefit greatly from taking this supplement.

Lab Mix Pup

MediPets CBD Products For Our Fur Babies from Diamond CBD

Diamond CBD offers a few lines of pet oils, and treats, I have found MediPets CBD Products For Pets to be a quality product. These are pure grade hemp CBD products designed for your pets and easy to administer.

You can choose from cat and dog formulas, and oils or treats. They also offer sprays for pets who prefer a couple quick oral sprays for their CBD dosing.

MediPets CBD Pet Treats and Oils are third party tested, just as the human line of Diamond CBD products are. You can check out the lab results for each product available to ensure quality and potency.

If your pet is sensitive to wheat flour, or corn flour you should stick with just the oils as the treats contain wheat flour and/or corn flour. My puppies have issues with wheat and corn, I have to buy special food and everything, so in my case I would just use the oils.

MediPets CBD Oil for Large Dogs 100mg

If your furry companion is feeling the stress when you leave for the day, or even from thunder storms, then your pet could possibly benefit from taking MediPets CBD Oil for Dogs. This 100% natural CBD pet alternative supplement, could help ease your pup through the day during your absence.

Training your pet can be a challenge, if they have cognitive issues (thought process issues), this can make the challenge even harder. CBD oils can help with this as well. When you slow down the anxieties and hyperactivity, it increases the ability to concentrate and learn.

MediPets CBD Oil for Dogs has been reported to help with pain and joint stiffness as well. We all know that pain and stiffness from arthritis is uncomfortable, our pets feel it too with age. If we can make them more comfortable with just a few dollars I think it is well worth it!

For just $49.99 you get 30ml of oil that contains 100mg of CBD tincture. If you’re a new customer you will get a 25% discount for your first order! That is a generous offer in my opinion. And if you click on my link you will get 35% off of all MediPets Pet Treats as well.

MediPets CBD Tincture

Now that’s an offer you just can’t refuse! Go ahead and get your fur baby the best supplement with a wonderful discount! You can get some oil for now and some treats for stocking stuffers too!

CBD Dosage & Feeding Instructions:

Use 8-10 drops of MediPets CBD Oil on your pet’s food, treats, or water bowl 1-2 times a day depending on your pet’s condition.

This oil is intended for big dogs between 41lbs and 100lbs, there are lower doses for smaller dogs as well.

Big Yellow Lab

CBD Spray For Our Furry Friends

If your dog is super finicky and will not eat the oil on his/her food or treats, you can always just give simple little sprays into their mouth with the MediPets CBD Pet Spray.

This CBD spray delivers your pet’s CBD quickly and easily. Just simply spray into your dogs mouth as directed and you are good to go. Your dog will feel the benefits and you will be all the happier as well.

MediPets CBD Products Line

A one ounce bottle of 100mg will cost $49.99. The price is the same for either cat’s or dog’s formulas.

I have not seen anything about this, but I don’t see why it couldn’t work as a topical as well. Like if your dog has an itchy spot, why not try it to see what happens, it can’t hurt even if he/she licks it off. I don’t think it would cure the mange or anything, but its worth a shot on simple hot spots and possibly on tumor growths.

We All Want What Is Best For Our Fur Babies

In the end we all want what is best for our pets, they are a part of our families. There are so many people saying how beneficial this has been for their pets, I think it’s worth a try, if you have a pet that seems to fit any of the categories of what CBD helps relieve for animals.

Golden Retriever

Being able to view the lab results for each product, and the ingredients being so simple, and the recommendations on mg’s and dosing, makes shopping safely for your pet’s supplement easy.

Diamond CBD has a wonderful and reputable line of products that you can trust. They really go out of the way to make sure you have a great shopping experience. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful as well.

New customers receive a 25% discount on their first order. There is free shipping on all orders over $100, and if you are unhappy with your product there is a free return and full refund policy as well. Just to remind you that if you click through my link you will get 35% off of your MediPets CBD products as well.

I would love to hear what you think about MediPets CBD Pet Products, or the topic of CBD usage in pets, what’s your opinion. Please feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

What Options Do I Have For Using CBD: Checkout GoGreen Hemp’s Line of Products

 

Hemp CBD Extract

The flavor of CBD products is not always wonderful to those that do not appreciate it’s natural flavor, which is somewhat earthy and bitter. There are some wonderful flavors added to cover the natural flavor for those who do not care for it.

But what about those that do not wish to consume it? Do they have options as well? The answer is, yes they do! GoGreen Hemp, my favorite company to promote, has a wonderful line of CBD products to choose from.

There are a few methods of using CBD products, of course the most popular as of now is the oral method with tinctures and candies etc. Did you know that you can use it for a topical as well or even smoke it like hash, or vape it too? These are all the methods I will go over, and give product links to, that you can click on and buy them if they suit your fancy.

Topical

You can get CBD topicals that you apply directly to the inflamed or sore spot, and it helps as a targeted pain reliever. There are different aromas and combinations, you have to shop around for the product that is right for you.

GoGreen Hemp Eucalyptus & Lavender 500mg Balm

I prefer GoGreen Hemp’s CBD Eucalyptus and Lavender Balm Salve I am not the sporty type, so the minty aromas do not appeal to me. I found that my CBD hemp balm is just as effective as sports creams like IcyHot, without the skin discomforts, and that smell! You can purchase this product for $29.99.

Follow the link above to take advantage of this great topical cream!

I try to explain to people that Icy Hot and other such types of sports creams leave my skin feeling yucky, like it has a hang-over. GoGreen Hemp’s balm does not leave my skin feeling like that at all! My skin is soft and silky, and very pleasant smelling as well!

For those who need a great tattoo cream GoGreen Hemp also has Tattoo CBD After Care Balm, you will find it on the same link for the Lavender Balm above. I do not have any tattoos, but I am sure this will probably work better than most after tattoo care cream.

Wax Crumbles

This is arguably the fastest way to get CBD into your system. When you inhale it, it goes straight to the bloodstream, with almost a direct route to the brain. This means that you will feel the effects within seconds of inhaling. So if you are looking for a more instant relief, this is the method for you if you don’t mind smoking it.

GoGreen Hemp’s Pineapple Express 850mg wax

The best process for using this product is called dabbing. You can use a dag rig which can be big and bulky glass or a dab pen. The pen is the safer of the two and easiest for traveling. You load your pen with a small amount of the wax, then you push the button, and inhale, you are now getting part of your dab dose. You repeat this according to the instructions.

GoGreen Hemp Wax Crumble comes in two flavors to choose from, Blueberry OG and Pineapple Express. you can buy this product for $74.99.

The dab rigs are a bit more dangerous to use, as you need a torch to get the glass bowl hot enough to cook the wax upon contact. This method you can get burned easier, and the rigs are not usually compact, definitely not recommended for travel.

Vape Juices

Vaping is not the same as smoking. Instead of getting smoke in your lungs, you get vapors. GoGreen Hemp also has vape juice in prefilled cartridges, no mess, you just plug in and go, so to speak.

You do not want to use this like other non-CBD vape juices, it is a supplement and should be treated as one. there are doses to follow with each product and this one is no different.

GoGreen Hemp’s Blueberry OG 200mg Cartridge

This is said to deliver your CBD dose just as fast as the wax crumbles. GoGreen Hemp’s CBD Cartridges comes in the same two favors as the wax, Blueberry OG and Pineapple Express. This product can be purchased for $21.99.

Your Needs Define How You Would Use CBD

How you use CBD if you choose to, that is up to you, but let your needs do the talking. There are many potential benefits if used properly.

If your pain is deep, and not suitable for using a topical, you may want to think about either orally consuming it, dabbing it, or vaping it. These methods will work better for that.

If you feel like it would be best used as a topical for your particular needs, then by all means, use the topical form. If you fell that a combination would work best, then you should try a combination.

If you are adding this in as a source of medical treatment, I strongly urge you to consult with your physician before you begin taking it, there are no medical claims made by any honest manufacturer of CBD oils. And never self diagnose or treat any illness whether it is physical or mental, this is very dangerous!

If you have tried GoGreen Hemp products and would like to leave a comment on your experience that would be wonderful. Even if you have not tried their products, but have questions or opinions, please feel free to leave a comment as well.

I will respond to all comments as soon as possible.

Thank you as always.
