What to Look For When Buying CBD

by | Dec 30, 2020 | CBD Education

Millions of people are turning to CBD to help manage physical pain, mental distress, and improve their overall wellbeing. And while people stand by CBD religiously, it is still a product that can benefit from being vetted prior to purchasing it. 

If you want to purchase CBD, it is imperative that you know what to look for so that whichever product you buy, you know you are getting the best quality that will be the most effective.

What to Look For When Buying CBD

Before you purchase CBD, you want to make sure that you are buying a quality product. There is great demand for CBD throughout the United States, meaning that people looking to make money fast are producing CBD products, too. Unfortunately, not all CBD products are of high quality as a result. That is why when you decide to make a CBD purchase, you should be aware of what to look for. Consider the following:

  • Check levels of THC — Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the psychoactive ingredient in the marijuana plant. Unless CBD is derived from the hemp plant and all of its THC is sourced out, your average run-of-the-mill CBD is going to contain THC. However, CBD products should not contain more than 0.3% of THC. Do not purchase a CBD product that contains more THC than that to avoid the psychoactive effects of the substance.
  • View test results — All CBD products come with a certificate of analysis, or a COA. Ask to see the COA of the CBD product you are interested in prior to purchasing. The COA will tell you how well the product tested and how good the quality of it is.
  • Avoid oils containing propylene glycol — CBD oils are easily some of the most commonly sold CBD products in the country. Some CBD oils contain a chemical known as propylene glycol, which breaks down into formaldehyde when extremely hot. Formaldehyde can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat and is linked to causing both cancer and asthma. Therefore, when you buy CBD, double check if it contains any solvents like this.
  • Do not buy CBD products that claim to treat or cure a condition — There is great hype surrounding CBD and the many ways it can help people. However, CBD has only been scientifically proven to help treat certain kinds of seizures, not anything else. More research needs to be done to test the effectiveness of CBD on conditions like chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. It is illegal for any product to claim that it treats or cures a condition that has not been scientifically proven. Buying a CBD product that holds claims such as this is not a good idea, as it is usually being sold by individuals looking to make a quick buck (and who are not worried about the quality of the product).

Spend time doing some research online and do not be shy about asking a salesperson the questions you have regarding their products. You have every right to know this information prior to buying CBD.
