How to read the Lab Report of CBD Hemp Oil Products

In this Article, we take a look at how to read Cannabinoid Profiles and we are going over the lab report of a full spectrum CBD hemp oil. We get a lot of questions about how to read these lab reports, what to look for, how to know a product is full-spectrum truly and what makes a distinct and unique.

We’re looking at only the cannabinoid profile of this product. We’re not looking at the other parts of a lab report such as checking for heavy metals or residual solvents or pesticides. In this little Guide, we are just going over the cannabinoid profile to show you what a full-spectrum product should look like if that’s what’s being claimed. And there will be variations in different lab reports.

CBD Hemp Oil Lab Report – Certificate of Analysis

So let’s take a look at the lab report of a product together. We’ll take a look at a few of the important things to look for when you’re going over a lab report of a full-spectrum CBD hemp oil product.

CBD Lab Report

The first thing we notice is that the total THC is 2,19 milligrams per milliliter, which is well under the allotted amount that’s legally allowed which is 0,3 %. This is just over 0,2% and you’re not allowed to be over 0,3%. It’s a 2/3 of that what’s legally allowed, so it’s fine.

As to be expected it’s a CBD dominant hemp plant and we are seeing 45 milligrams per milliliter of CBD.

Let’s take a look at some of the other cannabinoids in this Cannabinoid Profile.

Cannabinoid Profile

The Cannabinoid CBC

The first cannabinoid present is CBC- Cannabichromene with 1,39 milligrams per milliliter. It is a significant amount of that. Below that we could find CBCa – the acid form of CBC. Could there be some in there? Possibly, but either it’s too low to be detected or it is not tested by the way they’re doing this test.

The Cannabinoid CBDa

Then we have some CBDa present – the acid form of CBD. So not all the acid was converted in the decarboxylation for this product. There’s just a little bit left as you can see here 0,02% of CBDa .

The Cannabinoid CBG

Going down list we got CBG – Cannabigerol. We did an article all about Cannabigerol – CBG is a very interesting cannabinoid. With 0,1% there is a small amount of that in the product too.

Learn more about:

The Cannabinoid CBN

Followed by CBN – Cannabinol. At 0.01%, a small amount is also included in this product. We also just did an article about CBN, which you can go read just about these different cannabinoids.

Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Product

With all these Cannabinoids in there, including THC, this is truly a full-spectrum product. How do we know? Well ,we see all these different cannabinoids, that’s really the main thing. We see significant amounts of CBC, CBG and THC. Will there be products that vary in what cannabinoids you see? Absolutely, and that’s what makes different products interesting and different strains interesting.

The terpene profile is a different part of the lab report. Some labs do not include it and that is usually up to the manufacturer or if their product is made from CBD-Isolate and has no terpenes, then they’re not going to be ordering a lab report. They’re not trying to hide it, it’s just the product doesn’t contain them.

This is a product that you would expect to contain terpenes, based off this full-spectrum cannabinoid profile.

Summary

Is it a legal hemp product? That’s always something we check at the top. That’s what you can see with the total THC. Then also of course that you check the cannabinoids listed is what you would expect based off what it says on the bottle.

Many of us would argue based on preferences, we’d like to see way more of each of these cannabinoids. Imagine a product where you got about 10 milligrams CBC, CBN or CBG plus the CBD. Like a really well-balanced cocktail and we think we might be moving towards that.

But based on the strain, the plant will mostly produce one or two cannabinoids that are usually CBD or THC. But the growers are learning how to make the plant these other dominant cannabinoids and then obviously you can mix them together in a product.

Let us know what you think about these cannabinoids We are interested in what you think about CBC, CBG and also about CBN. Since those are the ones that we talked about in addition to THC and CBD in this particular product. Let us know what you think in the comments down below.
