Here at Canna Bloom Farmacy we have seen that this industry is plagued by an issue pertaining to small and large companies alike: Lab Testing. As described above, all hemp products must contain a concentration by weight of delta-9-THC under 0.3%. Almost every single lab in America was primarily equipped to test for this already, but what the industry did not foresee was the rate that hemp research would progress at. With the popularity of other minor cannabinoids like delta-8-THC, THC-O-Acetate, and CBG as well as other families of hemp derived compounds entirely, such as THC-V – the “Varins”, and HHC – the “Hexas”, it left labs understandably scrambling to not only purchase, but develop new equipment and procedures to perform these tests.
It left companies in this industry in a holding pattern – often getting unreliable, fake, or inconsistent results in the meantime. With the exploding popularity of hemp in America and it’s enlarging retail footprint taking hold, most companies either decided to skimp on testing due to financial reasons – inconsistent tests could cost up to $1000 each, skip it entirely due to the “gas station CBD” mentality, or were truly oblivious and uninitiated to the process entirely due to it not being a standard for the industry when they arrived in it.
While the scientific community is finally starting to make progress towards catching up in this regard, many of our competitors have not. We at Canna Bloom Farmacy were overwhelmed by the popularity of our hemp products and the state of the lab testing community just as they were as well – but at every step of the way have invested tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man hours into the necessary infrastructure to elevate our own standards.
What sets us apart now from our competition in a large way is simply our testing and production procedures. Every product you see offered has a certificate of analysis from a DEA certified lab. We go the extra mile and not only analyze our potency to make sure our products contain consistent dosing, but also test for mycotoxins, heavy metals, pesticides, microbials, and residual solvents. It’s expensive, but the investment is worth it to elevate this industry as a whole.
As we go into a new year and phase out many of our old product lines on clearance we seek to continue to improve our standards. As of 2022 all of our handcrafted products will not only contain this verified lab test but will also be individually numbered with Lot and Batch information so you can trust that your unit was personally inspected for quality, safety, and potency by one of our team members at 2770 East Sumner St, Hartford, WI 53027.
