Lab Tests & How to Read Them
Asterra Labs relies on a completely independent outside laboratory to test all our company’s products for quality and purity. We also test to ensure that each product we manufacture contains the marketed amount of CBD. There are plenty of companies selling CBD products without appropriate controls on their manufacturing processes and with substandard ingredients. In fact, the FDA has found products on the market that did not comply with label claims on the packaging.
