Any product on the market is going to have some fantastic, high-quality options and other, lesser versions. This is true about pretty much everything from cars to shoes to computers. Guess what? This is true about cannabidoil too! This makes it tough for you as a consumer to know whether you’re buying something that is as top-quality as you want, especially if you’re making this purchase online. We’re here to help!
Sales of CBD products continue to rise at a dizzying rate. If current trends continue, industry experts and economists believe the CBD sector could be worth a staggering $20 billion by 2024. That is great news for cannabidoil users, but also means unscrupulous businesses will try to get into the booming market with poor-quality oils. Here’s what you want to look for in a new product:
#1 Third-Party Lab Verification This is known as a certificate of analysis (COA). If you’re having difficulty accessing the COAs for a particular CBD product, look for another company. This information should be readily available to you, because they’re proud of their product’s quality.
#2 Small, Simple Ingredient List High-quality CBD oils should have a few easy-to-pronounce ingredients. As long as you can identify what’s in a CBD oil’s ingredient list, you can feel confident about using it. On the other hand, if there are weird-sounding ingredients, you probably don’t want to put that product in your body. As a quick example, our very popular Citrus Burst Tincture has only seven ingredients, all of which will be easily recognized. It’s all natural oils from plants like hemp, tangerines, oranges, and limes!
#3 Organic Options You don’t necessarily have to choose organic CBD, but if a company offers you this option it is a pretty good indicator that their products are legit. Our organic products are USDA Certified Organic. Organic certification requires that farmers and handlers document their processes and get inspected every year. Organic on-site inspections account for every component of the operation, including, but not limited to, seed sources, soil conditions, crop health, weed and pest management, water systems, inputs, contamination and commingling risks and prevention, and record-keeping.
#4 Distilling with Alcohol There are many different extraction procedures out there, but one of the oldest methods is to use alcohol as a solvent. Our herbal tinctures contain plant-based ingredients concentrated into an edible liquid plant medicine. We extract our CBD in-house using food grade ethanol and take extra steps to further distill that base oil
Unfortunately for consumers, not all CBD is a good product. It’s challenging for new customers to separate top CBD from something that is little more than snake oil.
