Market Report: CBD Industry Has Come a Long Way in Improving The Quality and Accuracy of its Products

Leafreport partnered with Las Vegas’ Canalysis Laboratories to put dozens of CBD products from various brands to the test. Our goal was simple: check if these products contain as much CBD as the company says they do.
CBD Industry Report

The CBD industry is notorious for its lack of transparency. Although CBD brands are increasingly using independent third-party lab testing to confirm the safety and potency of their products, many still don’t contain as much CBD as advertised.

That’s why Leafreport partnered with Las Vegas’ Canalysis Laboratories to put dozens of CBD products from various brands to the test. Our goal was simple: check if these products contain as much CBD as the company says they do. We started with 37 different products and brands and will be adding more in the future.

Most of the results went as expected, while others were quite shocking. Read on for our detailed report and be sure to check for future updates.

Note: this investigation is just one of Leafreport’s ongoing efforts to bring transparency to the CBD industry and educate consumers. You can also check out our report on CBD prices. We have surveyed over 3500 products from 52 different brands and rated them based on price, purity of product, the potencies available, the transparency and reputation of each company and their customer service and also summaries all in the following report cheap CBD oil products.

Summary

On the whole, the tests suggest that the CBD industry has come a long way in improving the quality and accuracy of its products. However, there is still cause for concern. Here are the key findings:

  • Out of the 37 products tested, 27 (73%) had CBD levels within 10% of the claimed amount
  • 5 products (13%) had CBD levels that were more than 40% higher or lower than what the labels claimed
  • One product contained only 6% of the CBD stated on the label
  • 31 (84%) of the products contained more CBD than advertised, so you’re more likely to get more CBD than less
  • Most of the brands we tested are popular and reputable. The products that performed the best were made by leading, well-reviewed brands, whereas those that performed poorly were offered by lesser-known companies. This provides further proof that you should only buy from reputable CBD brands.
  • 12 (33%) brands had significant levels of other cannabinoids besides CBD, which is a sign of a high-quality hemp extract

 

Accuracy Rating

We rated the accuracy of each CBD product by comparing the amount of CBD stated on the label to the actual amount measured by lab technicians from Canalysis Laboratories.

According to cannabis industry experts, +/- 10% is an allowable amount of variance for cannabis products, which means that a high-quality CBD product is expected to have CBD levels that are within 90–110% of what’s stated on the label.

That’s why we scored products with an accuracy within 10% as A (excellent), whereas products with lower accuracy received a rating of B, C, or F. Here’s a complete breakdown of each rating:

  1. A (Excellent): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 10% of what was stated on the label.
  2. B (Decent): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 20% of what was stated on the label.
  3. C (Poor): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that were within 30% of what was stated on the label.
  4. F (fail): independent lab tests showed CBD levels that differed from the label by more than 30%.

 

CBD Third-Party Lab Testing Explained

Third-party CBD tests are done by an independent laboratory unaffiliated with the company to confirm the potency and safety of the product in question.

The most common and important third-party test done for CBD products is called a cannabinoid profile or potency test.

It shows how much CBD (and potentially other cannabinoids) is in the product, helping you confirm that the amount stated on the label is what’s actually found inside. This is the only way to ensure you’re actually getting what you paid for. You can learn more about cannabinoid profile test here.

This test is extremely important for several reasons:

  • A product with less CBD than claimed will be less effective and may lead people to think that CBD doesn’t have any benefits
  • Similarly, a product with more CBD than claimed will affect your dosage and increase the risk of potential side effects
  • CBD products are not cheap, so you want to know you’re getting your money’s worth

Watch our interview with the laboratory director of “Canalysis Laboratories” about cannabinoids profile test (Min. 19:55 – 22:58):

 

Certificate of Analysis (CoA)

We ordered potency tests for dozens of products from Canalysis. The results of these tests were recorded in documents known as certificates of analysis (CoAs).

We then compared the amount of CBD shown on the CoAs to the amount stated on the product’s label, and calculated how accurate it was.

For example, if a tincture that’s claimed to contain 500 mg of CBD actually had 510 mg, that it means it was 510/500 = 2% higher. Since this is well within the 10% range expected for a quality CBD product, it’s considered an excellent (A) result.

 

How to Read CoAs

Third-party CoAs are typically posted by CBD brands on their website for customers to look at. Reading a CoA can be a bit overwhelming at first because of their scientific jargon and confusing layout. However, it doesn’t have to be difficult.

The most important info to look for is the “cannabinoids” section. Here, you will see a column with cannabinoids (including CBD, THC, and others) and a column with their reported amounts.

For CBD, the number can represent the total CBD found in the product or how much is in a given amount (e.g. one capsule or 1 ml). There will typically be more information to explain which amount is being shown.

This is enough to get you started. For more info, check out our detailed guide on reading a CoA.

 

Summary Table

Here’s the summary of test results for the 37 CBD products we examined. Most of these are CBD oil tinctures, but some are also edibles, topicals, and pet products.

Note that products with a minus sign in the variance column contained less CBD than claimed, whereas the rest had more CBD.

CBD Dog Health Calm Tincture for Dogs 550 mg (30 ml) A 550 595.08 8.20%

As the name suggests, Florida’s CBD Dog Health focuses on CBD products for dogs. We tested the company’s 550 mg CBD tincture, revealing that it contained 595.1 mg of CBD.

That’s an excellent result: a difference of only 8.2%, which falls within our A rating. It also highlights that just because a CBD company is not that well-known doesn’t necessarily mean its products are of low quality.

The tests also showed the presence of other beneficial phytocannabinoids, such as CBC. This confirms that the product is made with whole-plant hemp extract, which is more beneficial than pure CBD on its own.

As expected, the results were great: the CBD oil contained 519.2 mg of CBD, a difference of only 3.8%. That’s a great level of accuracy, especially considering companies have to maintain it for hundreds of identical products.

One of the biggest names in the U.S. CBD industry, CBDistillery is known for offering great prices and being transparent about its manufacturing process. It’s also certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority, which highlights adherence to strict hemp manufacturing standards.

As such, we weren’t surprised to see that their 250 mg CBD isolate tincture performed exceptionally well. It contained 253.2 mg of CBD, a difference of only 1.3% from the label. Maintaining such a small amount of variance is quite difficult.

Funky Farms Alaskan Ice Tincture 250 mg (30 ml) A 250 249.06 -0.40%

Funky Farms is another CBD brand from Florida. There wasn’t that much information available about this company, except for the fact that it sources its hemp from Oregon. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the test results.

The company’s Alaskan Ice flavor 250 mg CBD tincture contained 249.1 mg, which was only 0.4% lower than the label. This was the best result seen in our independent tests, with only one other brand reporting the same level of accuracy.

The tests also showed the presence of other beneficial phytocannabinoids, such as CBC. This confirms that the product is made with whole-plant hemp extract, which is more beneficial than pure CBD on its own.

The tests also showed the presence of other beneficial phytocannabinoids, such as CBC. This confirms that the product is made with whole-plant hemp extract, which is more beneficial than pure CBD on its own.

Although it’s always nice to get more CBD than you paid for, this number falls short of our 10% variance for an A rating, so this oil received a B. We were surprised to see such a big, established CBD company fall just a tad short.

The tests also showed the presence of other beneficial phytocannabinoids, such as CBC. This confirms that the product is made with whole-plant hemp extract, which is more beneficial than pure CBD on its own.

You probably haven’t heard of Chronic Candy, a CBD brand specializing in delicious CBD edibles. However, this company has been around since 1998, which is a very long time in the CBD industry.

Irwin Naturals CBD Oil 250 mg (30 ml) C 250 317.37 27%

Irwin Naturals is not the biggest name in CBD, but it does boast high reviews on the independent review site Trustpilot. That’s why we were surprised to see its 250 mg CBD oil perform quite poorly.

The tests showed that this tincture contained 317.4 mg of CBD, which is 27% higher than the label. While it’s certainly great to get more rather than less CBD for the same cost, it’s no excuse for such a large difference.

CalyFX Social Tincture 1000 mg (30 ml) F 1000 61.83 -93.8%

California’s CalyFx is not the biggest CBD brand out there, but we were still surprised by the test results.

The tests showed that their social tincture, which is supposed to contain 1000 mg of CBD, had 61.8 mg — only 6.2% of what was claimed. This was by far the worst result of any CBD product we tested.

Diamond CBD Full Spectrum CBD Oil 25 mg (30 ml) F 25 40.56 62.20%

Diamond CBD is unique for offering many other CBD brands on its website. Aside from that, however, most of the information we could find about the company is fairly generic.

We tested its full-spectrum 25 mg tincture, which should already raise some questions over its extremely low CBD concentration. The tests showed an actual CBD amount of 40.6 mg. That’s 62.2% more than the company claims it should contain, which is a resounding F grade.

King Kanine CBD Oil 75 mg (30 ml) F 75 109.71 46.30%

King Kanine is one of the best-known pet-centric CBD brands, so we were curious to see if there was substance behind its popularity. We tested the company’s 75 mg CBD oil tincture, which showed an actual CBD content of 109.7 mg.

That’s a difference of some 46.3% — one of the worst results we saw on our tests. While this might not seem like much considering this product’s low CBD concentration, it may be a problem if King Kanine’s other products have such a low level of accuracy.

PureKana Citrus CBD Oil 300 mg (30 ml) F 300 488.46 62.80%

PureKana is a popular brand offering every type of CBD product imaginable. We put its 300 mg citrus-flavored CBD oil to the test.

Surprisingly, the tests showed an actual CBD content of 488.5 mg, a massive difference of 62.8% from the label. Again, while we’d rather have a product that contains more CBD than advertised rather than less, the accuracy of this product is too low to be trusted.

The tests also showed the presence of other beneficial phytocannabinoids, such as CBC. This confirms that the product is made with whole-plant hemp extract, which is more beneficial than pure CBD on its own.

Tree of Life CBD Drops 250 mg (30 ml) F 250 130.92 -47.60%

Tree of Life Seeds shares the identities of its CEO and other staff directly on the company’s website, which is a sign of a transparent company. But does that mean its products can be trusted?

We tested Tree of Life’s 250 mg tincture, which actually contained roughly half the stated amount: 130.92 mg. That’s 47.6% less than the label, one of the worst results out of the 37 products we tested. Such a low accuracy earns our F rating.

Conclusion

Our investigation confirms that although the CBD industry has come a long way, it still has much room to improve in terms of providing accurate, high-quality products.

At the same time, the results highlight that most popular, trusted top CBD brands, including the likes of Lazarus Naturals, CBDistillery, cbdMD, CBDfx, and Green Roads provide accurate products that match the company’s transparent image.

We urge anyone interested in buying CBD oil or other CBD products to only purchase from brands that provide independent third-party lab test results (the same tests that we used for our investigation). These results should clearly list the CBD amount so you can confirm that the product contains exactly what is written on the label.
