Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound within the cannabis plant. It is often sold as an oil, consisting of CBD and a carrier oil such as grape seed or hemp seed oil. The dosage of CBD within these manufactured products can vary greatly in potency depending on dosage forms including oral administration (oil) or topical use (cream). CBD, as sourced from hemp plants, should typically contains less than 0.3% Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by weight. Conversely, CBD as sourced from Marijuana plants may contain up to 40% of THC by weight. To bolster consumer confidence in these products, it is critical for accurate quantification of CBD in formulated products, with corresponding demonstration of low THC content per state requirements.
ARL Bio Pharma employs High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) as our standard testing methodology for CBD quantification. We routinely test CBD oils and creams for CBD potency. We also offer a THC limit assay to demonstrate that THC is not present in the product formulation down to a concentration of 0.3%.
