Solving Cannabis' Trust Problem
Currently, there is no regulation of CBD beyond the legal definition of permitted THC content. Outside some isolated examples, in the medical sphere, there is no stringent monitoring of what is sold by vendors to end-users. A 2017 Penn Medicine study found out that over 70% of CBD products are mislabelled (Penn Study Shows Nearly 70 Percent of Cannabidiol Extracts Sold Online Are Mislabeled - Penn Medicine, 2017). According to a new investigative report from Ellipse Analytics and CBS Austin, 70% of the 240 top-selling hemp CBD products available online or in non-dispensary retailers tested positive for heavy metals like lead and arsenic, concentrated chemical pesticides, toxic mold, and other potentially dangerous impurities.

Consumer safety becomes an issue at this juncture. Given the trend of CBD consumption for the purposes of mitigating issues associated with pain relief, insomnia, and anxiety, mismatches in content can have serious consequences for consumers (Single Care, 2020). Product verification is also needed for casual consumption as usage rates among adults register a higher incidence.
Chow420 is an ecosystem for cannabis wellness products that is built on an unforgeable certification standard for cannabis and CBD products on the Binance blockchain network. Chow420's internal verification protocols ascertain the veracity of vendor COAs (certificates of analysis) against the databases of testing laboratories and communicate discrepancies to relevant parties. Successful outcomes are published on Chow420.com and embedded on the Binance network to reinforce customer trust, verify the source products and enforce the accuracy of product labels.
