Purchasing CBD can be like playing Russian Roulette. I hope these tips can better prepare you to be confident with your CBD purchases!

The CBD industry has blossomed into a sea of available products from a range of different brands. It is normal to feel overwhelmed with all the options. Unfortunately, you cannot just buy the first (or the cheapest) CBD oil online. Not all CBD products are created with the same quality. And if you don’t know what to look for in a quality CBD product, you may end up falling for the pitfalls. Do not gamble with your health, here’s how to avoid playing Russian Roulette with your CBD choices.

In this article, we help you make the best decision for your CBD wellness.

You are going to want to buy a high-quality CBD product at the best price. However, the difference between a high-quality product and a low-quality oil may not be obvious at first. But the difference is a dramatic one. Always do the research you need to do before buying a CBD product, whether you buy CBD online or at a dispensary.

Buying a high-quality CBD oil is crucial if you want to experience the benefits of CBD.

Here is what you need to do before you buy CBD oil:

1. Verify Local Laws

First things first, you should make sure where your local laws stand on THC. You should also ensure the THC content is exactly as it says it is. Many states across the US have indeed legalized CBD products. But the tricky part is that many states allow for the sale and use of CBD oil without THC. These products are typically made from hemp. Hemp CBD products, according to federal law, will not contain a THC level higher than 0.3%. First, you need to determine if you are legally permitted to purchase CBD oil in your area and what the local laws state about THC.

2. Look at the Ingredients

Read the ingredient list on each product you are interested in. This will be a key deciding factor when choosing what CBD oil to buy. Some products will have ingredients added that offer their own set of therapeutic properties. These could be MCT oil or even melatonin. While these ingredients are sometimes highly beneficial, other ingredients may be a bit more harmful. Some CBD products could contain potentially toxic ingredients and could end up doing you more harm than good. Some CBD vape oils contain vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol- both harmful additives. Other products, like CBD edibles, will contain a host of nasty artificial flavorings and colorants.

3. Understand CBD Terminology

It does not help being able to read the ingredient list without knowing what the ingredient list is actually saying. Here are some tips for understanding what the terminology is saying.

CBD Isolate:  CBD Isolate is a type of CBD product that includes CBD and no other cannabinoids. The CBD compound has been isolated from other cannabinoids and extracted from the hemp plant. Most CBD isolate extracts will be at least 99% pure.

Full Spectrum:  Another term you might see is a full spectrum CBD label. A product labeled full-spectrum CBD will be starkly different from CBD isolate. Full spectrum will typically include naturally occurring compounds, including fatty acids, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. If a full spectrum product has been made from hemp, then it should not contain THC (but you should check this- we will show you how). If the full spectrum product is not made from hemp, then it is likely that it contains THC. Full-spectrum CBD is praised as being a more beneficial product due to the research known as the entourage effect.

Broad Spectrum:  If you want to experience the full spectrum benefits but want to avoid THC, you should check out Broad Spectrum products. Broad Spectrum CBD will offer all the potential benefits of full-spectrum CBD but without the THC.

4. Decide on the potency and the serving size

Determining CBD serving size can be a bit of a challenge. Serving size information can seem cryptic at first, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes more straightforward. The first thing to do is to understand the CBD oil product’s serving size. You can check this by confirming the mg per ml, which can be different for each product. Products with a higher CBD mg per ml will be more potent than a product with a lower CBD mg content.

Products with a higher mg per ml content will also tend to be more expensive. But they can work out more affordable in the long run.

If you are looking for a high CBD dosage, you might want to seek out a product with a stronger CBD concentration. While it may be initially more expensive, it could work out more affordable as you won’t need as many servings so that it could last longer.

5. Check out the Third-Party Report

Third-party lab reports are your best friend when buying CBD products. Select which company you want to support by comparing their claims with the independent reports.

Any CBD company worth consideration should have its products tested by a third-party facility. And that’s not all. These reports should be readily available on the company’s website. If you cannot find the reports, or it is not easy to locate the CBD lab reports, then you should seek out a different company.

The report should be as recent as possible

Compare the advertised cannabinoid content to the report’s cannabinoid content

Compare the mg of CBD advertised as well. You do not want to be charged for a 1200mg CBD product when it only contains 200mg

Check for the ISO logo on the lab report itself

Watch out for possible harmful toxins and contaminants

6. Check for Contaminants

Why is it vital to check for contaminants?

Hemp is a plant that can absorb a vast number of compounds, both good and bad. This means that if any harmful pesticides are used, they will be present in the CBD oil as well. CBD companies might want to cut corners in the production stage as well. By cutting corners and shaving off costs, the products will have their safety compromised as well.

7. How is the CBD extracted?

There are several ways for CBD to be extracted. And while the industry is continuing to develop new extraction technologies to ensure safety and efficiency, one extraction technique is considered the industry standard. Supercritical CO2 extracted CBD is currently accepted as one of the best techniques to ensure a safe product. There is just one catch- it can be pricey. Companies looking at making an easy profit are not typically concerned with safety and might use a different and cheaper technique. But remember, even if the company states that it uses supercritical CO2, confirm its safety through third-party reports.

And there you go. With these top tips you are fully equipped to buy a quality CBD oil or CBD product. There is no more Russian Roulette when facing the sea of CBD products available online. Use these techniques to find your ideal CBD product today.
