Rewind a few decades, and you’d find that cannabis, hemp and all related products were considered to be harmful—and even fatal! Thankfully, the world knows better now. Widely regarded as a potent alternative medication, cannabis products—especially CBD—are hailed for their beneficial properties.
However, some argue that this popularity is a double-edged sword.
Yes, a lot of myths have been dispelled thanks to the sudden global interest in hemp and CBD—and that’s something many people have benefited from, health-wise—nevertheless, there are some outstanding issues.
Unfortunately, many unscrupulous characters have jumped onboard the hemp product bandwagon, and are trying to cash in on its popularity; promoting substandard, potentially harmful products as the real deal.
And that’s something we need to put a stop to!
A Note on Price
You wouldn’t buy a pack of breath mints without checking the brand first. So you need to put in the same effort when buying CBD!
One of the reasons why unreliable brands have high sales is that they market their product as ‘effective’ at a low price. Unfortunately, this deception works, for a short time.
If you want to reap the full benefits of CBD, though, rather than being tempted by cheap products, try to get products that are worth the price tag.
Keep in mind that even high-quality CBD doesn’t have to be expensive. So don’t compromise on product quality. At the end of the day, it’s not worth it.
How to Determine Product Quality
Look for a Certificate
And by that, we mean pay attention to the details! All reputable companies offer a product certificate for perusal. The certificate contains information on all the component compounds, the total number of cannabinoids, a complete list of ingredients, and information on where the product was obtained from.
If the company you want to buy CBD products from doesn’t present their certificate outright, be cautious when buying anything from them.
Understand the Product
Do you know what CBD is? Furthermore, do you know its source plant? For example, we offer organic CBD that is derived from hemp. Hemp is a strain of the cannabis plant, but is quite different from the marijuana plant, which can also be used to extract CBD. The difference between both is that each has varying levels of THC.
Also, CBD from hemp is completely legal, when THC levels are at or below 0.3%. But depending on your state, CBD from marijuana might actually be illegal to possess. So always know what you need, so you don’t get into trouble with the law.
Find a Local Seller
If you’ve ever shopped online and bought products from an international store, you already know why we recommend buying CBD from a US seller. With international CBD, you can never be sure about the quality of the product.
Moreover, CBD sucks out all the nutrients from the soil in which it’s grown. If you have no way of knowing where it’s grown, you may not even know of the region’s agricultural practices and soil quality.
