You may have heard about the benefits of CBD and decide to purchase a CBD product from an online vendor. Thanks to the rising popularity of this compound, there are many types of CBD products on the market today. This inevitably means that there are as many low quality CBD products a there are high quality ones.
Here are five things to consider before buying CBD online:
CBD oil and hemp oil are not same: Many people don’t know that CBD oil and hemp oil are actually two different things. As a result, some people end up buying hemp oil (thinking that it is a CBD oil). CBD oil contains a high level of CBD.
Check out the third party lab reports: When buying CBD products online, check out third-party lab reports about the product. Many CBD companies make third party lab reports readily available on their official websites. These reports will inform you about the ingredients in the product and its safety.
If a company has not provided a lab report on its official website or is hesitant to share information when requested, that is a red flag.
Know the difference between CBD products: It is important to distinguish between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products.
- A full spectrum CBD product contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp plant.
- Broad spectrum CBD products contain all the cannabinoids and terpenes but no THC
- A CBD isolate product only contains CBD.
Each one of these products has benefits and knowledge about them will help you to choose the one that is most suitable for you.
Don’t fall for low prices: Shopping online usually comes with low prices, but that is rare in the CBD market. CBD products are expensive because the process of extracting the oil is expensive – especially if you are creating high-quality CBD. Therefore, a company offering its CBD products at very low prices may be an indication that its products are of low quality.
