Don't be fooled by the label: Know what to look for in your CBD Oil
As CBD continues to saturate the market, brands are rushing to put products on shelves, and some may opt for the quick-and-dirty approach, prioritizing speed over quality. Doing your homework is important!!
Ingredients, Ingredients, Ingredients!
There should only be two ingredients in your CBD oil (well three if there’s some natural flavoring) and that is “hemp extract” and “hemp seed oil.” Anything else is just a filler and dilutes the product. I see everything from MTC oil (coconut oil) to essential oils. I love coconut oil and essential oils, but I want PURE CBD!
Independent third party testing
Only around 1/3 of CBD products contain the amount of CBD listed on the label. Third party testing confirms that the dosage is correctly represented on the label and you want to make sure that the product has been tested for contaminants, solvents and mold.
Hemp plants are known to absorb toxins and radiation from the soil so third party testing is very important to ensure purity and safety!
Farmed and packaged in the USA
Look for products that are farmed and packaged in the USA. Hemp farmed in other countries are under different regulations than the US and may not be safe!
Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum vs Isolate...which one to choose?
Full-spectrum refers to the use of the whole hemp plant. It contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes and up to .03% THC (non-psychoactive).
With a full-spectrum product you are getting all the benefits that naturally occur in the whole plant. There’s what’s called an “entourage effect” meaning the chemical compounds work together in tandem.
IMPORTANT: If you get drug tested for work or school, you will likely test positive for the trace amount of THC in full-spectrum CBD Oil.
Broad Spectrum has all the benefits of the full-spectrum (cannabinoids and terpenes) minus the THC.
This is a great option if you get drug tested for work or school.
CBD Isolate is where just the CBD is extracted from the hemp plant.
The truth is, there’s a lot of marketing jargon with CBD Isolate, telling you it is a better product because it’s “the purest CBD,” but missing are the important cannabinoids and terpenes, plus isolates are sometimes not hemp at all, but are synthesized in a lab.
CBD Isolates are a highly processed product and because it does not contain the beneficial compounds, it may not offer all the health benefits of full- and broad-spectrum CBD.
So there you have it, our quick-hit list of a few of the things to look for in a CBD tincture. Hope this helps.
