Pure CBD Exchange seeks to maintain transparency with our customers by publishing up-to-date test results that showcase the purity and high quality of our CBD products. These test results are posted intermittently as they’re made available by our testing partners.
There are two primary kinds of test results done for CBD products, potency tests and microbial contaminant tests.
About Potency Testing
Potency testing includes two rounds of analysis. The first round, pre-harvest testing, occurs 30 days prior to harvest, as required by federal and state laws. The exact day when this occurs varies from state-to-state. During pre-harvest testing, samples are tested for compliance, combining Delta-9 THC and THCa for a combined THC total. After this phase, compliant samples will be certified as Industrial Hemp. Post-harvest testing reflects the cannabinoid content in products after they’ve been dried and harvested. These tests are not required in order to meet compliance. We do these purely to keep our clients and customers informed.
About Microbial Contaminants Testing
Pure CBD Exchange proudly adheres to the testing requirements of regulated cannabis markets, such as, Colorado, Nevada, and Canada. As a hemp company, we are not required to meet these standards. However, in the interest of consumer safety, we seek to maintain the same level of compliance in our products as THC products sold in recreational and medical dispensaries.
Nearly all cannabis products, as well the majority of agricultural products, contain some degree of yeast/mold. The limit for yeast and mold contamination in cannabis is 10,000 CFU/g. This is pass/fail test that measures for dangerous thresholds of yeast/mold in cannabis products. Any cannabis sample that does not exceed 10,000 CFU/g is considered passing and could theoretically be sold on shelves in a dispensary.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about how to understand these results or any other quality-related questions.
