CBD OIL REPORT
CBD oils are hemp-derived oils that make specific label claims for CBD content. CBD oil products are very similar to hemp oil products. All CBD oil products in this report passed Labdoor’s heavy metals and microbial testing for purity. Three of the six CBD oil products failed Labdoor’s label accuracy testing for not having the amount of CBD claimed on their labels. Three CBD oil products claimed 250mg/bottle of CBD each but were only tested at 97mg/bottle, 141mg/bottle, and 186mg/bottle of CBD respectively. CBD products tested by Labdoor ranged from 2mg of CBD per dollar to over 19mg of CBD per dollar. All CBD oils passed legal THC testing, but three products had detectable (>0.01%) THC content.
All CBD Oils Pass Purity Testing
All CBD oils passed testing for heavy metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury) and microbial (total plate count, yeast, mold, coliforms, E. coli) contamination.
This means that all CBD oils were tested to be pure.
Three CBD Oils Fail Label Accuracy Testing
- Three of the six CBD oil products analyzed by Labdoor failed label accuracy testing.
- Jolly Green Oil was tested to contain only 38% of the CBD claimed on its label (97mg/bottle vs. 250mg/bottle label claim).
- Diamond CBD was tested to contain only 56% of the CBD claimed on its label (141mg/bottle vs. 250mg/bottle label claim).
- Green Roads CBD Oil was tested to contain only 74% of its CBD label claim (186mg/bottle vs. 250mg/bottle label claim).
This means that people may not always get as much CBD as they see on the label.
Major Differences in CBD Value
- CBD oil products tested by Labdoor ranged from 2mg of CBD per dollar to over 19mg of CBD per dollar.
- Check Labdoor’s CBD Oil Value Rankings to see products ranked based on the amount of CBD each product provides per dollar.
This means that some people are paying up to 10 times too much for their CBD.
Three CBD Oils Have Legal Amounts of THC
- All CBD oils passed legal THC testing.
- Three products had detectable (>0.01%) THC content.
- One product had 0.17% THC content, over halfway to the legal limit.
This means that consumers who are concerned about THC consumption should check Labdoor’s product reviews before buying CBD products.
Labdoor Alert: THC in CBD Products
- Knowing the exact THC content in CBD products is important for people who are sensitive to THC or who are prohibited from consuming THC for work or competition.
- This could also be an issue for people who consume larger or more frequent doses of these products.
- The 2018 Farm Bill legalizes hemp, defined as cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC content by weight. (Source)
- "THC Free" is defined as less than 0.3% THC content. This is similar to "Fat-Free" being defined as less than 0.5% fat content (Source). This can be misleading when consumers assume that "THC Free" means absolutely zero THC content.
This means that CBD oils can legally have up to 0.3% THC content and still be called "THC Free."
