Is CBD oil safe?

With CBD oil available almost everywhere you shop, how can a discerning consumer know if their CBD is safe to use? 

At Daygold, we take the safety of our tinctures very seriously. Every one of our CBD oil blends are tested for purity by independent labs, to assure you that you’re getting the safest CBD oil available. The certificate of analysis (COA) is posted on each Daygold blends’ product pages.

Our goal has always been to provide the finest plant-based CBD blends. When you purchase our CBD tinctures, you can rest assured that:

Daygold’s unique CBD plant blends are physician-formulated. 

Working with one of the most well respected medical researchers in the cannabis industry, Dr Ethan Russo, we’ve created a superior CBD product that is not only effective at boosting wellness, it’s also safe to use every day- an added bonus is that their flavors and aromas are delightful as well (thanks to all the beneficial terpenes) . 

A board-certified neurologist and esteemed plant researcher, Dr Russo had led ground-breaking research centered on the many potential benefits of cannabis. He’s also responsible for popularizing what’s known as the entourage effect—the way that individual compounds work best together to boost the overall benefits.

Every ingredient we use is tested for safety.

From the organic coconut (MCT) oil that forms the base of all our blends to every single terpene used in our complex blends, we use only ingredients that meet the highest safety standards.

Our CBD, CBG, and CBN compounds—and the trace amount of THC in them (<.3%)—come from Oregon-grown, non-GMO cannabis sativa. Our climate and soil conditions are the best growing conditions in the country, so it’s not surprising that Oregon is the top-producer of non-GMO hemp.

Every single terpene we use is triple-tested for pesticides, heavy metals, and residual solvents. You also won’t find any additives like mineral oil, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol, or vegetable glycerine in them. Our terpenes are steam-distilled which is a safer way to extract terpenes without harmful solvents. Steam distillation also works better for retaining the potency of the terpenes that give Daygold superior flavor profiles. All this so you can enhance your emotional and physical wellbeing without ingesting anything harmful.

We also audit the labs and suppliers we work with to certify the safety and purity of our ingredients so we can be sure they are also upheld to our exacting standards.

Daygold tinctures: safety in every drop

From day one, we set out to create our products with focused intention and clarity. Sure, there are lots of CBD products on the market, but we believe it is our unique formula, along with our commitment to safety and our emphasis on quality that sets us apart. 

But don’t just take our word for it. We have three certifications from independent agencies that govern manufacturing and food safety backing us up.

1. Good Manufacturing Process (GMP)

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are produced and controlled according to quality standards. GMP are the practices required to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control the licensing  of manufacturing for sale of dietary supplements, pharmaceutical products, food and beverage, cosmetic and medical devices and materials. GMP certification covers all aspects of production including:

—raw materials

—manufacturing environment

—the safety and cleanliness of manufacturing equipment

—the training and personal hygiene of staff

Daygold is proud to be certified as a GMP producer. This certification means that an outside agency has examined every aspect of our manufacturing processes and found us to be in strict compliance from top to bottom. We don’t have to be a GMP business to develop tinctures for sale, we simply want to be the finest-quality, most trusted product on the market. 

2. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 Certification

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an organization that creates standards for commercial products and industrial and services. Though similar to the GMP in many ways, the ISO focuses on the management of the business and how information is reported to ensure quality. 

The adoption of and certification in ISO standards is voluntary. At Daygold, we chose to seek ISO approval alongside GMP because together, they help us to develop and produce the finest-quality, safest, and purest CBD oils and tinctures. At the same time these certifications help us to create more efficient productivity while also ensuring workplace safety.

Given the importance of providing a safe CBD oil, we are proud to have these strong safety protocols in place. 

3. Food Safety System Certification (FSSC)

When it comes to selling products designed to be ingested, food safety is of critical importance. This is true for CBD oil as well, since you’ll be taking it by mouth. Consumers should know that the products are not just beneficial in the intended way, but that they’re safe to consume. This is where food safety standards are helpful.

The Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) was designed to provide companies in the food industry with an ISO-based food safety management system certification. Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), provides worldwide acceptance by food manufacturers and retailers. In the United States, it also means the business meets basic requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  


“People are looking for natural solutions that will help them to feel better in their bodies and minds. At Daygold, we have created thoughtfully formulated CBD and CBG tinctures, in organic coconut oil, using well-sourced ingredients, and tested for purity by independent labs. We feel it’s of utmost importance to provide products that we would take daily and recommend highly to our loved ones, and that is certainly the case with each Daygold blend. ”
