What is a CBD certificate of analysis (COA) and why is it important?
A certificate of analysis (COA) is a lab report on the chemical make-up, or contents of a product to ensure the end user knows what’s inside, that it’s safe, and efficacious. At Bag Balm®, we use an ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited third-party laboratory to test all our batches. As is the case of industrial hemp derived products, the COA shows the contents of the cannabinoids as well as other tested compounds such as heavy metals, pesticides and residual solvents. COA’s are used to verify that the contents of the product are matched to the advertised or marketed product.
