This one might be a no-brainer, but your CBD vape should clearly state the quantity of CBD it contains. (For example, every whisl CBD vape pod contains 200 mg US-grown, hemp-derived CBD isolate.) Knowing the CBD quantity may be of particular importance if you are exploring full- or broad-spectrum CBD products, which may have more variance in CBD potency from batch to batch than CBD isolate products.
Your product’s THC content shouldn’t exceed the national legal limit of 0.3%. whisl CBD vapes are made using CBD isolate which contains not more than 0.3% total THC, including precursors, by weight.
Microbes and mycotoxins
This section shows the presence, or hopefully absence, of natural contaminants like bacteria, mold, and yeast.
The COA will let you know, at a high level, how the product is supposed to look. This information may be helpful as a reference, to make sure it looks as it should.
A number of other components may attach to CBD during the growing, harvesting, or refinement processes. Trace amounts of some of the following compounds may appear in even the highest-quality CBD vape products:
- Heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, or lead
- Solvents that might have been used to extract the CBD from the hemp
- Pesticides used during farming
- Microbes and mycotoxins such as bacteria, mold, and yeast
Look at the column that shows how much of each of these compounds is in the product. It should show that there are non-detectable levels of most of them.
States set out standards for what level of these compounds are safe for your body, and we don’t recommend purchasing or consuming products that exceed the safe levels of any of the above components.
