Certificates of Analysis
A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is a document issued by an accredited laboratory that includes a full composition of a product. For CBD, a Certificate of Analysis should include a total list of cannabinoids, microbiological levels, terpenes, and possible contaminants such as pesticides, solvent residue or heavy metals.
When a product is accessible on the market, it can be challenging to determine whether it’s good or bad with such a variety of choices. The lack of specific industry standards generates incorrectly labeled products and half-knowledge about the item for a prospective buyer.
Such a problem affects product quality and deceives customers about what they are really paying for.
However, labeling alone is not enough. Nowadays, customers don’t pay attention to product content. This is the reason COAs are a must-have for reliable, law-abiding CBD manufacturers. They unveil a true composition for each product.
QR is short for Quick Response (they can be read quickly by a cell phone). They are used to take a piece of information from a transitory media and put it in to your cell phone. Our COA’s can be viewed anytime by opening your cell phone camera can focusing on the QR code. A link to our COA’s will pop up, just click it and it will take you to the page!
Utoya continues its commitment of being transparent by providing third-party lab testing on all our products. This initiative was created to ensure that consumers and regulatory bodies can clearly access all of our product information. Each product sold by Utoya will have a corresponding Certificate of Analysis that can be accessed on our website and through a QR code on our products which can be accessed at any time.
