Frequently Asked Questions
Lab Reports, Pricing and Service
Why are third-party lab reports required?
Currently, the CBD industry is largely unregulated, which means some manufacturers and processors are free to label their products however they wish. The lack of regulation makes it increasingly difficult for new and genuine customers to find a safe, effective and quality CBD product that will help them get the most out of their supplement. Third-party CBD lab reports provide an unbiased verification of what is actually in the product that customers are intending to buy
How much does the lab report cost?
Zeus Laboratories offers reports on samples from as little as £60 each. Please contact us to receive an extensive quote for your needs today.
Is there a minimum quantity of samples you need?
There is no minimum quantity for the samples. We can offer analysis on any quantity and will advise if samples are not adequate for our methods.
How quickly can you provide reports?
We aim to deliver all reports within five working days upon receipt of samples. If there are any immediate concerns with the provided sample, we would detail it immediately.
If you are interested in partnering with Zeus Laboratories to certify your CBD products, test for potency, or for any other of our testing services, please contact us today to see if your product is applicable for our methodology.
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is rapidly gaining popularity in the natural products industry. Alongside THC – the psychoactive element in marijuana – it is an active ingredient produced uniquely by the cannabis family, but CBD is non-psychoactive, has no effect on brain activity and does not cause the ‘high’ associated with marijuana.
Is CBD Oil regulated in the UK?
CBD oil is becoming one of the most popular forms of natural medicine and can help ease symptoms of health issues such as anxiety and depression and may also offer pain relief. While there is some CBD oil regulation in the UK – and many ethical companies do comply – it isn’t robustly enforced. Unfortunately, there are some companies that offer CBD products with inconsistent quality that are ultimately harming the reputation of the CBD industry and damaging customer trust.
What are the rules for CBD?
Currently, the key UK requirements for CBD products are:
- CBD products must contain less than 1mg of controlled cannabinoid.
- Products containing CBD cannot make medical claims.
- CBD products must follow food supplements EU regulations.
- Ingredients must be listed including active substances dosage
- All products in the UK require a lab report
Do you need a license to sell CBD in the UK?
A license to sell CBD products isn’t required providing it contains a low THC (or other controlled cannabinoid) content.
Do you need a license to import CBD into the UK?
You can import CBD into the UK without a license. However, the CBD must originate from an EU-approved industrial hemp strain.
