It isn’t hard for a brand to claim that their cannabis is “lab tested.” However, that isn’t authentic unless the brand provides access to results from a lab that is independent of the producer. This can give authentic results and vouch for the cannabis to be potent, pure, and safe.
Although some producers publish the results on their packaging, they are also dependant on region-specific labeling laws, which provides a limitation on the information. While some brands usually provide a Certificate of Analysis for batches or online products, usually via a QR code, others will be needed to be contacted directly.
Refusal of lab results could be an indication that either the product wasn’t tested or that there’s some reason that the company doesn’t want them viewed.
It is important to understand that some set of results may not be as thorough as others, and the tests performed are dependent on several factors which include that product type and its use that was intended, and local regulations.
Most results will always show the levels of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids, in terms of potency. These compounds are the active compounds that are responsible for the different psychological and physiological effects of different strains.
Although THC and CBD are the most common ones, other compounds that include THCa, THCV, CBDa, CBN, CBC, and CBG, are important too.
Terpenes are less commonly found in lab results. However, for some products, the terpene levels are provided. Much of the aroma and flavor of cannabis products are provided by terpenes. However, terpenes are removed intentionally from some products but are also desirable in others.
For some products, the Certificate of Analysis (COA) will reveal the moisture content in the test sample. There is an increased risk of fungi and bacteria thriving in the product if the moisture level is high (above 15%). However, the product could be dry and brittle if the moisture level is too low (below 5%), which will lead to a less enjoyable experience.
Some methods used in the production of cannabis, extractions, in particular, can consequently result in low levels of solvent being left behind. Harmful health effects can also be potentially caused if the levels are too high.
The acceptable levels for several solvents can differ depending on the region, where common solvents such as butanes, propane, benzene, and xylenes, must be tested for.
Other safety tests
Other than residual solvent analysis, other tests can also confirm the safety of a product for consumption. In relevance, residues from plant treatment agents can likely be seen in the final product. Hence, this could lead to a long list of common pesticide compounds that may be tested.
Microbial growth is another concern in samples, typically in those with a higher moisture level. Microbial tests for things like E. coli, salmonella, yeast, and mold, are performed to ensure that the standards for the product are met.
Heavy metals are another significant concern in cannabis products. After absorption from fertilizers or contaminated soil, heavy metals could accumulate in the plant.
However, they are known to be highly toxic to humans and our bodies are not as efficient in their removal. Arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury, are the heavy metals we need to be worried about. However, they are often accompanied by various others when documented in a COA.
A huge amount of information that is authentic and important is provided by lab test results, regarding the product, including its purity and potency. The results also confirm the safety of consumption. Consumers should be able to access the lab results relatively easily and should question the authenticity of the product if they can’t

Good news for Sciatica patients: CBD oil relieves the pain
The recent studies on CBD oil have unfolded its utility in various fields of medicine. Researches on the effects of CBD oil on sciatica patients show that they can prove to be very useful in its treatment. The results have shown that the oil can work wonders to alleviate the Sciatica pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a severe pain caused by disruption in the sciatica nerve. Anything that disturbs the nerve results in extreme and sometimes, unbearable pain.
Sciatica is a nerve that starts at the lower back and extends through the hips and legs to the toes. It sends messages from the brain to the legs via spinal cord. Since, it is a long nerve, patients usually complain of the pain at the lower back, hips, legs and heels.
A compression on the Sciatica causes this severe pain. The major causes of compression are a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine.
What is CBD oil
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is derived from the Marijuana plant. It relieves the pain without causing any psychoactive or mind-altering effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD powder from the marijuana plant. Coconut or olive oil is mixed in it for better application.
The recent researches on CBD oil have revealed its anti-seizure, neuroprotective and pain relieving properties. Due to its wondrous effects on human body, many celebrities advocate for CBD.
Utility of CBD oil for Sciatica patients
CBD oil works by increasing the number of pain modulators that stimulate a response to the pain. Our mind has cannabinoid receptors that modulate the pathways that stimulate a response to the pain and negative emotions.
As sciatica pain arises, the CBD oil applied on the respective part works to reach the brain in order to stimulate a faster response to the pain.
While the Sciatica is a very painful condition, it is mostly treatable with medicines. However, most pain relievers have side effects that cause harm in the long run. In contrast, CBD oil works naturally to enhance the receptors with minimum side effects.
Best CBD oil to relieve Sciatica
Every person’s reaction to different types of CBD oil varies from the other. One cannot say with surety, since what works for some might not work for the others. This is primarily because every person has a different set of genetics, general health and tolerance.
Natural and organic remedies take time to show their reaction. While CBD takes some time to relieve the pain, it is undoubtedly one of the harmless ways to do so.
CBD oil works best when used with the consultation of a doctor. Before buying, one should make sure that the oil contains laboratory verified ingredients.
