It's important to know what you put into your body. At YAA Health, we believe you should make the informed decision about the products that you purchase. Here is a brief guide to understanding the cannabis lab test results that every reputable dispensary should provide upon request:
Potency testing tells you the amount of certain cannabinoids present in your cannabis produsct. THC and CBD are the most commonly known cannabinoids, but there’s also THCA and THCV (different forms of THC), and CBDA, CBC, CBN, CBG and CBDV (different forms of CBD).
Potency tests are provided as percentages per weight (the most common metric) or total milligrams present. THC and CBD typically comprise 1-30% of most strains, while the lesser-known cannabinoids are usually closer to 0.01-5%. As a handy tip, the best strains have a little bit of all the cannabinoids, not just CBD.
CBD lab results
Professional lab analysis is more important than ever in the of CBD industry. A main factor that you’ll want to ensure is that the product contains less than 0.3% THC, which is the amount that’s legal for hemp and cannabis-derived CBD products in the U.S.—anything more might affect a job-related drug test.
Full-spectrum products (which are derived from the whole plant, hemp or otherwise) will always contain a minimal amount of THC, even if it’s an amount smaller than what most lab equipment can test for (look for the CBD LOQ, limit of quantitation).
