CBD products are everywhere in the market. In fact, the number of options is so diverse that many customers have a tough time deciding which one to try and which one to leave as an alternative when the first one fails (pun intended).
Odds are high that the expensive CBD products you are buying have none to negligible CBD; thus, if after consuming your CBD product, you happen to notice any changes in your body that you have been long hoping for, mind you, it may just be a placebo effect. However, we don’t have any intention to say that all CBD products in the market are ineffective.
Given below are a few quick points that you should keep in mind every time you try a new CBD product:
Check the product label
If your CBD product label lists ‘hemp seed oil’ as an ingredient, then I am sorry to say but your product doesn’t have any quantity of the cannabinoid you bought it for.
Hemp seed oil does have some advantages to it, that is, it is a good moisturizer, but that’s the end to it.
If the label lists ‘CBD oil’, ‘hemp oil’ or ‘hemp extract’ without specifying the quantity of CBD, then you can fairly assume that your product, yet again, contains negligible CBD that wouldn’t benefit you even in years.
If you are looking to buy an effective CBD oil, try to locate a brand which promises 10-20mg of CBD per dose (200mg per ounce) on the product label.
Notably, a reputed, reliable company always publishes the lab results of its products on its official website.
Check if you can somehow find the name of the continent where the hemp (source) of your product was grown
If the source of your product is coming from Asia or Europe, it is better to stay away from it. The hemp from outside the US doesn’t undergo stringent testing and scrutiny and may be contaminated with toxins. Prefer the native source!
Don’t believe in marketing ‘shenanigans’
Buzzwords like ‘nano-extracted’, ‘phytocannabinoids’ (which is the complete term for plant-derived cannabinoids), etc. may entice a casual consumer on first look; however, they do not mean anything substantial. In fact, look for real scientific terms like ‘CBD isolate’ and ‘Full Spectrum CBD’ – these are the ones worth your attention.
