How Do You Choose Right CBD Products? With hundreds of different CBD products flooding into the market every day, how do you know if you’re getting a premium CBD product?
In the last few years, thousands of different CBD products have entered the global CBD market. If you’re a CBD enthusiast, you’re probably thinking that great, what’s the problem? While it is good news that CBD is becoming more recognizable and there is more discussion around CBD for its potential health benefits. It’s also bad news for people trying to find premium CBD because the wrong CBD products are outnumbering the right CBD products with all the false advertising.
There are hundreds of misleading cannabis products entering the market along with legitimate right CBD products. Once you know what to look out for, it’s easy to spot the products that are only pretending to be CBD and the products that contain active CBD.
A little background on what right CBD products are will help you better understand what to look for and what to avoid when you purchase CBD.
Cannabidiol is a cannabinoid that is in both hemp and marijuana plants. Both plants belong to the Cannabis Sativa plant family. Marijuana is rich in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and low in CBD. Hemp is high in CBD, the non-psychoactive cannabinoid. CBD will not get you high and has no psychoactive properties. Using a complicated and expensive process, they extract CBD from the hemp plant material. Hemp seeds contain almost no CBD.
Things to avoid when you’re buying CBD:
Anything you purchase from Amazon will only be hemp oil. While hemp oil contains its natural compounds and potential benefits, it doesn’t contain any CBD. But there are hundreds of dishonest people placing products on Amazon and Amazon is not smart enough to stop them. See the example below.
Look out for products labeled as cannabis Sativa extract, cannabis Sativa oil, cannabis oil, cannabis extract, hemp oil, hemp extract, CBD hemp extract, or anything else similar. They are just hemp oil and contain no active CBD.
Look through the description and ingredients of the product. Check to see if one thing listed as an ingredient is cannabidiol. If they do not list it on the ingredient list, then it’s most likely just ordinary hemp oil.
Look for independent laboratory test reports. If they have them available with the product, read them and see how much, if any, cannabidiol they contain.
