4 THINGS TO KNOW WHEN SHOPPING FOR CBD
When you’re on the hunt for a great CBD product, you don’t want to grab the first one you see without looking into it further. Explore and enjoy the journey of finding the best product for you. Below are four things to keep in mind when shopping for your next CBD product!
- THE SOURCE
This is one of the most important things to know when you are looking at buying a particular CBD product. Like in all industries, there are bad eggs. But what do the bad eggs of the hemp industry look like? Well, for instance, where are they sourcing their hemp from? Do they grow their own? If so, how are they growing it? Bad farming practices can lead to pesticides, heavy metals, and herbicides. This can essentially lead to doing more harm than good to your body.
If a company is sourcing their hemp from out of the country, I wouldn’t be so keen on taking that either. Other countries have different regulations when it comes to hemp and it may not be up to US standards.
- LAB RESULTS
Lab results are essential when buying CBD products! This ensures you that the product you are looking at is pure. Lab results will also ease your mind that there is no more than .3% THC so you can feel safe and comfortable when you take it. Any reliable company will post results for everyone to see.
- CBD BENEFITS
It’s important to understand the benefits of CBD. Unfortunately, CBD is not a fix all, cure all. In fact, there has been no scientific evidence that it cures any diseases at all. However, it has been known to help treat chronic pain, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer related symptoms, reduce acne, have neuroprotective properties, support heart and brain health and so much more.
When purchasing CBD, it’s important to keep an open mind and understand that this product reacts to every body differently.
Though CBD has been federally legal, under the 2018 Farm Bill, each state has the ability to construct their own regulations when it comes to CBD. It is up to you to do your own research to find out the laws of your jurisdiction.
