How to Find Good Quality CBD
How to Find Good Quality CBD
69% of CBD products* are mislabeled
Some products contain little to no CBD
Others contain unlabelled THC
Here’s how to know if you’re buying a high-quality CBD
Step 1: Decide What CBD Is Best For You
Hemp or Marijuana?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a natural extract, derived from cannabis ー CBD treats a wide range of medical conditions, without the psychoactive effects of THC
Extracted from cannabis strains with less than 0.3% THC
Legal in all 50 states 一 No prescription required
Extracted from cannabis strains with higher THC content
Only legal some states ー May require a prescription
Full Spectrum or CBD-Only?
Other cannabinoids ーincluding cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) and cannabigerol (CBG)ー have likely medicinal benefits, but lack the strong research backing of CBD
Full spectrum CBD
Includes additional cannabinoids found in the plant
May contain traces of THC
CBD crystals are 99% pure and THC-free
Might not offer the same relief as full spectrum
Which works better?
A 2015 study found that a full spectrum CBD was more effective than CBD isolate for relieving pain and inflammation in mice
The “entourage effect” ─added relief from products that contain minor cannabinoids─ has also been shown in numerous studies on medicinal THC
Fast-acting or Long-lasting?
For sudden headaches or acute insomnia, a fast-acting CBD may be best ㄧ But for chronic pain, a longer-lasting option will provide the best relief
For rapid relief
Sublingual tincture: Oil or concentrate applied under the tongue
Vape: Liquid inhaled through an e-cigarette, vape pen, or vaporizer
Both sublingual tinctures and vapes offer high bioavailability for CBD
For long-lasting effects
Oral: Oil, gel cap, or infused edibles
Transdermal patches: Slowly release CBD through your skin
For targeted treatment
Topicals: Lotion, salve, or lip balm
What’s the best method of CBD consumption?
Vaping is the most popular method of using CBD
Topicals work best for skin conditions and localized pain
Sublingual tinctures are portable, discreet, and effective
Once you’ve decided what you’re looking for, find a manufacturer you can trust
Step 2: Research the Manufacturer
Cannabis plants are bioaccumulators ー Easily absorbing contaminants like pesticides and pollution
Look For: Good Farming Practices
Organic farming ー Organic practices eliminate exposure to herbicides, pesticides, and harmful chemical fertilizers
Grown in the USA ─ Strict regulations govern domestically grown hemp, while the growing conditions of imported hemp can be hard to verify
In the US, hemp is rarely USDA certified organic, even if grown using organic practices
Some methods of extracting CBD from plant material leave behind toxic chemical residues or create a low-quality product with limited shelf life
Look For: Safe Extraction Methods
Ethanol extraction ─ Extracts cannabinoids to create a high-quality oil perfect for vaping and other products
CO2 extraction ─ Extracts cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils to create a CBD oil with no harmful chemical residues
CO2 extraction can be used to make both CBD-only and full spectrum products
21% of CBD products* contain unlabeled THC 一 In some cases, enough to cause intoxication
Look For: Independent, 3rd-Party Lab Testing
Reputable manufacturers will choose to test their product and make the results available to the public 一 either on their website or by request
Results should show the product’s potency, THC content, and preferably the presence of any contaminants*
The report should be dated and show the name of the lab company
In the United States, THC content cannot exceed 0.3% 一 Except in states with legalization
Knowing how to read the product label can answer a lot of questions about your CBD
Step 3: Read the Label
Though CBD is unregulated, most manufacturers of oral CBD choose to follow FDA guidelines for dietary supplements and vitamins
How Long Will It Last?
Expiration date 一 Most CBD will last 12 to 18 months
Storage instructions 一 Most products last longer if kept in a cool, dark place
Packaging 一 Heat, light and humidity make CBD degrade more quickly
Servings per container 一 Indicates how many doses are included
How Strong Is It?
CBD products should always indicate the actual CBD content, in addition to the serving size
Serving size 一 How much of the product you should take
Dosage 一 Actual CBD contained in a suggested serving
Topical CBD never enters the bloodstream, so dosage guidelines aren’t necessary 一 BUT the product label should still indicate how much CBD it contains
What Else Is Included?
Terpenes 一 Natural plant extracts that add aroma and flavor
Sweeteners 一 Sugar or natural sweeteners added to improve flavor
Cannabinoids 一 Full spectrum oils will contain additional cannabinoids
Carrier oils ─ Tinctures combine CBD extract with a food grade oil
Topical CBD often includes ingredients like menthol or lidocaine for added relief
The FDA doesn’t regulate CBD, leading to a marketplace flooded with low-quality products
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized cultivation of hemp and its cannabinoids 一 But it’s still up to you to find a high-quality CBD
69% of CBD products* are mislabeled Some products contain little to no CBD Others contain unlabelled THC
