Tips on being a wise CBD consumer from a friend of TRUCE….
A word of caution:
He's been looking at COA's (Certificate of Analysis) and noticed something. He obtained COA's from CBD sellers like CBDistillery and American Shaman.
They claim to sell quality CBD, but if you look at their COA's they are only testing for cannabinoids and do NOT have test results for contaminants such as pesticides, solvents, mycotoxins, etc.
He obtained a COA from a cannabis producer in Nevada that manufacturers a variety of products and even spoke with the owner who discussed their process. When looking at their COA the lab not only tests for the cannabinoids and terpenes, but the second page shows their analysis for pesticides, solvents, mycotoxins, microbials, metals, and foreign matter – which all showed a results of N.D. (non detectable.).
Please be aware that CBD sellers either don't have COA's or are offering COA's that seem to look good, but they don't test for harmful contaminants.

The second page of a proper COA detailing all of the possible risky contaminants is the photo in this post (and is in the second comment).
The first page detailing the cannabinoid and terpene content is in the first comment.
Examples of insufficient COA's are in the third and fourth comments.
