Our ingredients are routinely and systematically tested at every individual stage of the production process. Not only that, testing takes place at Socotec, widely regarded as the global leader in product testing, where state-of-the-art equipment delves into the molecular makeup of every EthicaCBD product. This means that we don’t make any false claims about our products. When we say our CBD is free from heavy metals and toxins, we know that to be true. When we claim to have the purest CBD currently available, we aren’t doing so to create marketing hype. Each of our statements are scientifically certified by genuine third party testers. And all to make sure you can place your trust and confidence in EthicaCBD.
Stringent testing is incredibly important to us. It means that we can be completely transparent with our purity claims, talk confidently about the range of terpenes and cannabinoids present in some of our products, and give the consumer a complete picture of our range. We hope that our commitment to testing inspires confidence in EthicaCBD and allows you to trust us when we say that our products are the best.
Rigorous testing is a fundamental element of everything we do at EthicaCBD. Our commitment to quality is one of our most important goals, so regular testing is crucial to ensure that we uphold our quality assurances. So that we can be sure we are consistently adhering to the high standards that we set ourselves, each of our products undergoes testing at 4 separate stages of its journey.
All Ethica’s CBD products undergo testing for their purity to the highest UK / European standards and include a full analysis for any contaminating cannabinoids, pesticides, heavy metals, fungicides, mycotoxins and solvents.
Ethica Pure Swiss CBD oils (Night, Day, Defence, Calm and Body) are made from a highly purified Swiss CBD isolate which has a greater than 99% CBD content, with only a low level (0.17%) of another cannabinoid, cannabidivarin (CBDV). CBDV does not have psychotropic, or “mood altering” properties. At greater than 99% purity, the Pure Swiss CBD isolate is directly comparable in CBD content with pharmaceutical grade CBD used in various clinical trials. The final CBD concentration in each of the five Pure Swiss CBD oils is 10% with 0.6 – 0.8% added terpenes (natural aromatic compounds from plants) in organic coconut oil.
Ethica WholePlant CBD oil (spray or dropper form) is made using a CBD distillate from whole hemp plants. This distillate is more than 96% pure CBD, with some low levels of other cannabinoids from the hemp plants. The final CBD concentration in the WholePlant Broad Spectrum CBD Oil is 5%, together with added naturally derived terpenes, 0.17% cannabigerol (CBG), 0.02% CBDV, 0.003% THC and 0.001% cannabinol (CBN). The total content of the psychotropic cannabinoids, THC and CBN, is only 0.02 mg per bottle of CBD WholePlant oil. To put this into context, this is only one fiftieth of the legally permitted level of these cannabinoids.
