FDA Finds Only 2 of 24 CBD Products Have What They Say They Have In Them
The above headline is what ultimately contributed to the creation of our small, family run company, Living Matrix. It was 2016 and my family and I were trying to defeat or lessen two major issues; trouble sleeping and chronic pain. Knowing the negatives of pharmaceutical drugs we turned to cannabis, specifically CBD, because of its non - intoxicating properties, no high. We tried many different brands and different potencies. Every company claimed to have the best product . Yet the results were inconsistent. There is nothing more upsetting than spending hard earned money on a bottle of CBD oil and feeling very little or no effects at all. We couldn't understand why this was the case. As we gained knowledge of CBD we also came to realize that some of the brands we were using didn't have a third party test their product. In case you don't know, third party testing is having a neutral, unbiased source, usually a reputable cannabis laboratory, examine the content and quality of a companies products and provide a Certificate Of Analysis or lab report explaining the results of testing.
When we saw the above headline, we now understood what was going on . With the CBD industry being unregulated, it was as one well known hemp website called it, like the wild west ! It was at this point that the idea of starting a small company with a focus on transparency and quality started to take shape. We formed relationships with trustworthy hemp farms and were able to craft an honest product for our personal use. We started supplying our friends and family. We now have expanded and have created an online company, Living Matrix. So that no one else would have to go through what we went through in using CBD, we also created a list of rules to operate by.
HERE ARE THE LIVING MATRIX GAURANTEES
- The source of our hemp must be from choice USA, non-GMO, pesticide free farms.
- Provide a recent third party lab report (Certificate Of Analysis) for every batch and product to ensure quality.
- Full Transparency - have all of our products third party tested twice. Once after manufacturing and once before sale.
- Have a fair pricing structure and pass on what savings we can to our customers.
