10News visited a San Diego lab that tested CBD products for ingredients like pesticides and heavy metals. The results were surprising to lab personnel.
Shelby Huffaker is the lead cannabis educator at Torrey Holistics in Sorrento Valley. The licensed dispensary recently conducted its own CBD study to show customers just how unreliable the open market can be. “We collected about a dozen different products from various locations around San Diego and also on the internet,” she tells 10News.
Torrey Holistics collected samples from places like farmers’ markets, grocery stores, and the internet. The company bought CBD products such as lip balms, caramels, creams, and bath bombs, then sent to San Diego’s Infinite Chemical Analysis Labs.
