According with the opinion of many patients CBD is almost a miracle medicine. Unfortunately, too many people over the past years had to go through disappointing experiences with oils or other hemp extracts just because the product didn’t contain exactly what it was supposed to. In the worst cases those products were completely ineffective, or even contaminated with harmful substances.
The CBD industry is going to normalize and standardize its offer to the market, and the most serious producers can fully guarantee the content of their extracts. Nevertheless, most of manufacturers still rely on consolidated methods made for maximizing the production, instead of evolving their process in order to preserve all of the natural healing phytocomplex contained in hemp flowers.
It is not just benefits, though. Just like veggies and fruit, hemp flowers and stems used for extracting cannabinoids and terpenes may contain pesticides, herbicides, mould, and other organic or inorganic toxins. Moreover, just like veggies, nature doesn’t make all plants in a field equal. The content in cannabinoid, terpenes, antioxidants and other substances in the typical cannabis phytocomplex can vary tremendously. It is one of the extractor’s duties to select the best raw material and make the final product consistent over time.
A strict collaboration between the manufacturer of any phytotherapeutic remedies and a qualified analysis laboratory is necessary first of all to guarantee the customers and the patients that their CBD oil will be totally safe and effective. This same loyal collaboration between independent business entities is what will also support research and product improvement. Over these many years, Cibdol built up a deep knowledge in hemp processing and cannabinoids extraction, proudly owning a proprietary CBD extraction process without the use of chemicals. Both our competence and our methods are now evolving further, also thanks to the collaboration with Fundación CANNA.
When speaking about cannabis science and lab testing in Europe, Fundación CANNA immediately comes to our minds as an acknowledged authority. This non-profit initiative of CANNA company carries out research on cannabis and its active compounds using state-of-the-art technologies, contributing to the development of a healthy and transparent medical cannabis industry. Specialized people in Cibdol are now sharing with researchers at Fundación CANNA their knowledge on hemp processing and extractions, being able to frequently perform any kind of biochemical test required by Cibdol’s food-grade products.
According to our agreements with raw materials providers, the plants used for Cibdol CBD oil are grown without pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and chemical fertilizers. We also require the soil itself to be tested for eventual agricultural or industrial contamination. High concentrations of even just one of these chemical substances, as well as bacteria or mould, can cause significant side effects. It is both our and Fundación CANNA’s duty to test all of our batches before marketing the Cibdol CBD oil.
Each batch of raw material or concentrated extract is tested with the latest technologies. Fundación CANNA certifies the accurate concentration of CBD as listed on our product label, the absence of biological contaminants and heavy metals, as well as the specific terpenes and cannabinoid profile. Microbiological tests are also carried out to rule out the presence of any bacteria. The oil used as a solvent is food-grade organic, and lab tested as well.
All analysis performed by Fundación CANNA on Cibdol’s products comply with current regulations in European Union and Switzerland, and they are part of our Good Manufacturing Practices. This collaboration with a specialised laboratory also helps our research department in developing the best repeatable production processes from cultivation to the manufacture and delivering of our finished products. All analysis results certified by Fundación CANNA are available on our web site. Cibdol is available to provide the customers with any further information regarding our raw materials quality, and our production and testing methods.
