With the wide range of CBD products on the market today, it’s hard to know whether what you purchase online is top-shelf or bottom of the pile.
CBD is big business these days, and it’s growing rapidly, with many States in America and Europe, regarding it as legal as it has a high medicinal value. However, as with most things, there is great CBD on the market but there’s also the low-quality stuff, and that needs to be avoided at all costs.
But how is a consumer, especially one purchasing on the internet, supposed to know which product will work well and which is fit for the garbage?
There are a number of factors which need to be considered when choosing CBD products, especially when shopping online. Some less than reputable companies cut corners and take short cuts in order to make more on their bottom line, without caring about the quality of their product.
When buying CBD products it’s important to source them from reputable manufacturers who are known in the industry. Factors like where the hemp used in the CBD was grown. Whether pesticides were used in the growing process and how quality control was carried out. Once you have an idea about these factors, you will be better placed to make a decision, so don’t hesitate to email the supplier to ask questions.
Another factor worth considering is the way your CBD is extracted. There are many different ways, but you’ll want to steer clear of the lowest extraction form, such as using the Petroleum method, which can include such nasties as propane, hexane, and butane. Try to go for CBD products which are extracted using something called Petroleum-Free Processing supercritical carbon dioxide which is liquid CO2.
It’s also well worth taking a close look at any independent 3rd-Party lab results which may have been carried out, a practice all reputable CBD producers will have easily accessible to them. These lab results usually include tests for quality, cannabinoid content, toxins, pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents.
Whatever you do, make sure you are getting the very best CBD products on the market, and even if they sometimes come at a premium it’s well worth spending a few extra dollars to ensure you are getting the very best.
