      1. GOOD LAB WORK W/ ZERO CONTAMINANTS

      A company’s lab work (also known as a Certificate of Analysis/ COA) should verify the absence of contaminants, solvents, pesticides, and other toxic compounds; lab work can also tell you what cannabinoids and terpenes the product contains, if any. You can learn how to interpret lab work here.

      • NOTE: Lab work should be performed by a third-party testing company, and should have the CBD company’s name on it. Be wary of any company that doesn’t make a recent COA readily available on their website.

      2. A FULL SPECTRUM OF CANNABINOIDS

      “Full-spectrum” CBD refers to CBD products that contain a small amount of THC (which should be less than 0.3%). Full-spectrum CBD is the most effective type of CBD product, as studies show that CBD works best when used alongside other supporting cannabinoids (such as CBC, CBG, and CBDV).

      • WARNING: Studies show that high doses of THC (above 0.3%) can be toxic, impairing, and/ or traumatic for dogs, so please ensure that your CBD product contains less than 0.3% THC (you can verify this by consulting lab work).

      3. A ROBUST TERPENE PROFILE

      Terpenes in your CBD product are a sign of superior extraction and effectiveness. The naturally occurring terpenes that are shown in our lab work not only have a wonderful flavor and smell, but have also been widely shown to have anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties by numerous studies. Additionally, certain terpenes in our tinctures are known to enhance the anxiety-relieving properties of our product for those who need it.

      • TASTE IT: A burnt taste or complete absence of flavor can be a sign of poor extraction or worse. Also, be wary of additives, as flavored products can mask issues with quality. If your product is diluted in MCT coconut oil (which is flavorless), you should be able to taste the terpenes in the product.

      4. ORGANICALLY GROWN, NON-GMO PLANTS

      Organic, non-GMO growing practices minimize exposure to toxic compounds and create plants which are richer in nutrients. Furthermore, these growing practices are more sustainable and environmentally conscious than industrial farming. 

      • DON'T BE FOOLED: Many companies buy the cheapest hemp they can find to make their extracts from, which leads to low quality products. Furthermore, deceptive marketing and labeling practices are rampant, so make sure you know what you're buying and where it comes from.
