Our answer was incorrect, according to Polly Carver-Kimm with the Iowa Department of Public Health: “Concerning regulation of the CBD products, the Iowa Department of Public Health oversees testing of medical cannabidiol products. All testing is conducted at the State Hygienic Laboratory at the University of Iowa.

Testing rules are described in 641 Iowa Administrative Code 154, and specifics on sampling and testing can be found on the department’s website under Laboratory Acceptance Criteria.”
