A Certificate of Analysis (COA) is a document issued by a third-party laboratory that verifies the purity, potency, and quality of a particular product. It provides detailed information on the product’s chemical composition, including the levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides.
COA is a crucial document for CBD, hemp products, and cannabis-related food because it provides consumers and regulatory agencies with evidence of the product’s safety and quality. The COA verifies that the product is free from harmful contaminants, and that it contains the amount of CBD or THC claimed by the manufacturer.
In addition, the COA also plays a crucial role in the cannabis industry, providing evidence that products are produced and manufactured in accordance with relevant laws and regulations, such as those related to the maximum THC levels allowed in the state.
