The Importance of Third-Party Testing
At Speedy Grow, we have three core principles that guide us each and every day: authenticity, transparency, and quality. We believe that it’s our duty to provide pure, high-quality, and above all, safe, CBD oil to our customers. This means we go to great lengths to ensure that our product is of the highest standard.
The rapid growth of the CBD industry has saturated the market with cheap, low-quality product sourced overseas or from biomass facilities sourcing from hundreds of farms. Many brands are slapping a “quality” label on an inexpensive, and sometimes unsafe, product. In addition, certain CBD products have lower CBD content than advertised. As consumers, we knew there had to be a better way to shop hemp-based products that ensure short- and long-term safety.
One way we do this at Speedy Grow, is by sending our oil to a lab where they test for terpene content, pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, microbial contamination and more. This is called third-party testing.
What is Speedy Grow’s testing process?
In tandem with our partnering farms, we perform four different batch tests. Test no. 1 tests the hemp biomass overall. Our farm supplies a large amount of hemp for a control study. This testing guarantees that the 3 large farms we partner with are all using the same strains and growing technics to insure each batch tests and has similar testing profiles so products are the same today as they will be in a year from now.
Test no. 2 tests the hemp extract overall. This study guarantees that the extraction process produces the same quality of CBD extract every single time. Testing for mold, pesticides and solvents, it also verifies that the actual hemp extract itself is a clean, safe.
Test no. 3 focuses specifically on cannabinoid content to guarantee accurate dosing in all of our product formulas. If both tests are passed, these two batch reports certify that the product is in full compliance with the state’s rigorous standards and is ready for market.
Our final Test no. 4 is to prove to our customers that our finished products are sent to a third-party lab to verify that the product our customers are receiving matches the test results and meet label claim. We go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are getting the safest, most reliable product possible.
Who do we test with, what were the results and where can we find them?
We have partnered with Pixis/Columbia Labs, one of the leading testing facilities in the country. Pixis/Columbia Labs has developed user-friendly lab tests in order to increase consumer knowledge and guarantee transparency.
Our third-party, independent lab tests prove the quality of our product and give our customers peace of mind they need.
