Our CBD buying guide is perfect to understand what you should look for when buying CBD.
Types of CBD
With all the different types of CBD on the market, the first step in educating yourself on CBD is to understand the 4 most common types of CBD. This includes full spectrum, broad spectrum, CBD isolate, and Nano CBD.
Full-spectrum products in general have trace amounts of THC. The THC levels are so slight that they will not get somebody high and have no psychoactive effects, however they can still be an issue for those receiving a drug test. If you are comfortable with trace amounts of THC and are not drug tested this might be right for you.
One important factor to consider when shopping for CBD is to explore if it is water soluble or oil soluble. Nano-emulsions or liposomal delivery systems spin down the molecules to tiny particles that improve absorption rates and onset times.
For example, when a traditional oil-based pill is swallowed, you can absorb as little as 10% of the hemp extract actually becomes active your body. That leaves 90% that is just flushed through your body and wasted.
Make sure the lab testing the CBD is 3rd party tested, and not an inhouse C of A. Companies say they test their own products and have not received outside testing can make false claims.
- If a company doesn’t provide a lab reports and C of A don’t trust them.
- A company should tell you exactly how many mg of CBD are in your product. If they don’t, it’s probably because there is only enough in there to claim they use it.
There are many low quality scams out there. Do you research!
A company should provide an address.
Quality brands are accountable to each other and are affiliated with trusted industry associations.
It should be easy to contact a company via email or phone.
Reputable companies tell you about their team backgrounds and post staff photos. Sites with just stock photos and no employee backgrounds and pictures are a red flag.
