There is a growing demand for CBD products. As this demand grows, so do the concerns about CBD product quality. This is mainly due to CBD not being approved by the FDA or regulated by the government. This makes it more important for consumers to know how to choose the right product if they want to experience all the health benefits CBD has to offer. What to look for in CBD is of utmost importance.
How to tell if CBD Brands are High-Quality Products
1.The best CBD products are made using supercritical CO2 Extraction.
This process ensures the extract is pure, free, and clear of any additives or residues. This is often not the case with other extraction methods. You should avoid using CBD Products that were made using propane, pentane, butane, or hexane. These extraction methods leave behind dangerous chemical contaminants.
2. Quality Products are Grown Naturally.
Cannabis is a hyper-accumulator plant. This means the plant absorbs literally everything in the soil it grows in. Much of what it absorbs can be useful and even full of nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. However, depending on the soil and its contaminants, there can be harmful chemicals such as petroleum or lead. Premium CBD products will be sourced on a farm that is FDA regulated and soil testing is required.
3. Third-Party Testing
The CBD product itself should be verified by a Third-Party Independent Testing Facility. A CBD company you can trust will make the lab results public. This information might be found on the bottle or box it came in, on an insert, or published on the company’s website.
4. The Price is too good to be True
You don’t have to buy the most expensive CBD product on the market, just look for helpful customer reviews and reasonable pricing. Premium CBD products are not cheap to make, so if the price is very low, it is a sign those products are made with inferior ingredients and may contain little to no CBD
5. Whole Plant Extracts
CBD products made from whole-plant extracts are also called full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD. These products are usually a higher quality product than CBD isolates. Whole-plant CBD contains other cannabinoids and terpenes that work with CBD to make it more effective.
6.No Medical Claims
A ton of research, plus personal testimonies make it clear that CBD is a truly remarkable product. However, it is not approved by any government agency as a medical treatment. CBD falls into the vitamin and supplement category. No company can legally claim its CBD products can cure any medical condition. So if you are looking at a product that makes steep medical claims, steer clear of that product and company.
7. Premium CBD Contains Less than .3% THC
CBD oils made from premium hemp contain less than .3% THC. This is not enough THC to give you the “high” effect of the cannabis plant. Low-quality products may not have a minimal amount of THC, this can be the results of products that go thru a sub-standard extraction process or are not third-party tested. The 2018 Farm bill made CBD products derived from hemp and carrying less than .3% THC legal in all 50 states.
