Do you know what to look for when purchasing a CBD product? There are a few points to consider, to ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the product.
There’s an abundance of CBD products with mislabeled potency levels and many falsely claiming to have full-spectrum hemp extract, when only CBD Isolate is present.
A study published in the Journal of American Medical Association found that 69% of hemp CBD products did not contain the amount of CBD indicated on the label.
There’s also a lot of questionably-grown hemp out there. Being a hyperaccumulator, hemp plants easily absorb anything that’s present in its soil. Verify that your CBD was sourced from US-grown plants and grown for its flower and the intention of medicinal and/or therapeutic use. Seek out brands that know their farmers and have established quality farming and sourcing standards, such as non-GMO, organically grown, or generatively grown.
Most importantly, identify brands that value transparency and publish their products’ lab results so you can confirm their true potency and quality.
