Why Third Party Hemp Lab Testing Matters

Why Third Party Hemp Lab Testing Matters

Chances are you are here because you have an interest in CBD and you’re trying to figure a couple of things out. You’re likely trying to figure out if you should be using a CBD product at all. If you’ve decided that you’re ready to dip your toe into the world of CBD oils or CBD edibles, then is Sugar and Kush CBD right for you?

If you’re looking for someone to talk you off the ledge from taking the plunge, you’ve come to the wrong place. I’m all in on CBD sister! I feel particularly comfortable with S&K CBD products because they have a third party CBD lab report for each product they offer.

I’ve talked a lot about my “why” for taking CBD. I should explain how I choose the products I use to help you make a more informed decision for yourself.

I try not to over complicate things, because frankly life is confusing enough as it is between managing my career, keeping my kids somewhat inline, staying physically active, making time for intimacy….there’s just a lot to process. Adding something like a CBD product shouldn’t add to your stress, but if you’re not careful, it can.

All Sugar and Kush CBD is lab tested and comes with a certificate of analysis

The truth is CBD has been around for centuries, but only in recent years have we really started to study it and it’s benefits. Because the government doesn’t have decades of data or mountains of peer reviewed studies, they don’t have a good grasp on how to regulate it at this point. With no official regulations from the FDA or individual states, the land of CBD hemp oil is still being charted.

I found this concise explanation concerning the current status of CBD products on Health.Harvard.edu.

“... you cannot know for sure that the product you buy has active ingredients at the dose listed on the label. In addition, the product may contain other (unknown) elements. We also don’t know the most effective therapeutic dose of CBD for any particular medical condition. We need more research but CBD may prove to be an option for managing anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain. Without sufficient high-quality evidence in human studies we can’t pinpoint effective doses... it’s difficult to know exactly what you are getting.”

While CBD is unregulated, it does not mean you have to take chances with brands that leave their ingredients a mystery. CBD lab testing is very real and any manufacturer that truly has their customers best interests in mind will not only have their CBD products tested, but will also make those results easily available on their website and or packaging.

Without lab testing and readily available results, it is impossible to know what you’re getting. The reality is there are less than reputable manufacturers who may underdose their products, tell you a product contains 100mg of pure CBD (cannabidiol) isolate, when in reality you’re only getting a quarter of that or less.

Many CBD companies are not being honest about the CBD concentration in there products.

There is also the risk of THC contamination. With no lab testing and no results, how can you be sure your product contains no THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis? All Sugar and Kush CBD products are made from pure hemp. One of the benefits of CBD is that it provides many of the benefits attributed to cannabis without the high. You should be able to use a CBD product without the risk of failing a drug test, but if the product you choose doesn’t provide a lab certificate of analysis, you could find yourself in a precarious situation if you have to suddenly submit to a drug screen.

I feel comfortable with Sugar and Kush CBD oil because it comes with a CBD lab testing report showing it is a pure CBD isolateWhen making a decision on what CBD products to use, make sure you look for independent third party testing. If the lab is the same as, or a subsidiary of the company selling the product, that should be a red flag. That’s essentially telling your kid to clean up his or her room and then allowing them to verify it’s clean, not exactly something you can count on.

My preference is Sugar and Kush CBD oil and gummies for the very reasons I laid out above. If it can help you feel better and further your wellness journey, it’s worth a shot. You will find the Lab Purity Testing report below the Add to Cart button on each product page.
