How to Identify High-Quality CBD - Ingredients to Avoid

The number of people worldwide using CBD (cannabidiol) to increase overall health is growing at a fast pace. Also, the number of companies offering CBD products. Unfortunately, not everyone crafts their products the same way. It is essential to be aware of ingredients you should avoid in your CBD and learn how to identify a High-Quality CBD product.

Beginning with the Basics

Cannabidiol is one of the over 100 chemical compounds you can find in the cannabis plant. Most CBD you will find is extracted from the hemp plant and according to federal law, it must contain less than 0.3% THC.

Hemp-derived CBD must not be confused with CBD extracted from marijuana. Even though they both come from the cannabis plant, hemp-derived CBD is characterized as non-intoxicating, meaning you do not get high. Thanks to its low THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content, you can benefit from its many claimed benefits without worries. Marijuana, on the contrary, has much higher THC levels; besides feeling an intoxicating-effect, it is good to note that it is not legal in all 50 states in the USA.

Identifying the Source of your CBD can Talk About its Quality

Hemp acts as a “hyperaccumulator,” which means it absorbs everything from the soil it grows in. This can have two sides, it can absorb useful components, like vitamins and minerals or harmful, toxic chemicals and heavy metals.

If you find a cheap CBD oil, you should double-check the country of origin and the extraction process. We highly recommend purchasing CBD oil made with hemp grown in the USA.

Looking at the COA’s (certificate of Analysis) made by a third-party lab is another essential part when digging into the source of the product you are purchasing. You will be able to confirm that the amounts of cannabidiol listed on the labels are those in the product.

Importance of Reading the Label

Pay close attention to the labels, where you will find the amount of cannabidiol per serving. Some CBD products contain low amounts of cannabidiol, making you miss out on the potential benefits a high-quality product with a higher potency could provide you.

Make sure you are getting CBD oil or Hemp Extract and not Hemp seed Oil. Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are different products. CBD oil or hemp extract uses the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant in its production. These contain a higher concentration of CBD. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds and although it has a rich profile of nutrients and fatty acids, it contains little to no CBD.

In addition to hemp extract, carrier oil is added to the CBD product to enhance CBD absorption. Most commonly used carrier oils may include coconut, MCT, palm, olive, avocado, and hemp seed. Some carrier oils may also offer additional health benefits.
