Certificate of Analysis

It's important consumers educate themselves how to identify quality CBD while regulation evolves.

A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is a document from an independent laboratory that shows the quantity of various cannabinoids in a product. To protect their customers and prove that their products have as much CBD as they advertise without impurities or toxins, manufacturers should send both raw materials and every product batch they make to a lab for third-party testing.

How to Check a COA

Always check the COA before using a CBD product. As you may have noticed, COAs for CBD products aren't always easy to access. However, every CBD product should have a QR code on the label. When scanned, it should direct you to the product's COA. Open your iPhone camera app and hover over the QR code as if to take a photo. A notification should pop up with a web address. For Android or older iPhones, search your app store for "QR code scanner". Free downloads are available. You can also find the COAs below.

How to Read a COA

When you open a COA, you're going to see a lot of information: Product Name, Manufacture Date, Expiration Date, and various numerical batch identifications.
The two numbers of most interest to you are Strength of the CBD, which is conveyed in milligrams (mg) per serving or per capsule / tablet , and the Amount of THC, which in SourcePure's case, will always read "not detected" as it is derived from orange peel, not hemp or cannabis.

If you have any questions about the COA, please contact us.
