4 Things You Should Check on CBD Product Labels

September 17, 2019 15:00:02

Walk down any street and you are sure to find adverts for CBD products. These products can be found anywhere ranging from health food stores, convenience stores, gas stations and even on lemonade stands. Picking the best product from that wide array can be quite a task, but this process can be eased if you examine the product label for the following information.

Active CBD Per Serving

You are likely to see two designations for the amount of CBD in the product that you wish to buy. For example, one product may indicate that the contents have 200mg CBD concentration. However, you should also pay attention to another number, which is the active CBD per serving. The product described above may be a tincture and a serving is 10 drops. The manufacturer should have worked out how much CBD you will be consuming in each serving of 10 drops.

Use this information to compare how many servings each product can give you, and how much CBD you will be taking in. The information in this regard will help you to compare different products and select the one which gives you better value for money.

Supplement Fact/Ingredient Panel

You should also read the product label and examine the supplement fact panel. This section will let you know what ingredients were used to make the CBD product, especially other ingredients which aren’t taken from the cannabis plant. It is preferable to buy a product whose ingredients are all from the hemp plant, but needs vary, so read the ingredients panel and make an informed decision.

Suggested Use

Different products are formulated for different purposes, so you need to find out what suggested use the manufacturer had in mind when making this particular product. For example, a product that is intended to be used sublingually may not produce the desired outcomes if it is applied topically. Match the indicated suggested use to your preferred mode of use.

Full Spectrum, Isolate or Broad Spectrum?

Find out what type of CBD is contained in the product you wish to buy. For example, full spectrum CBD can also be referred to as whole plant extract. This form contains CBD, some THC, terpenes and other compounds found in the cannabis plant. Many prefer this form because better benefits accrue due to the entourage effect.

Broad spectrum CBD refers to CBD that is close to full-spectrum CBD. However, nearly all the THC is stripped from broad-spectrum CBD while retaining all the other cannabinoids.

Isolate CBD is usually a powder of pure CBD without any other cannabis compound. Manufacturers usually mix this crystalline CBD in carrier oils (olive oil or coconut oil, for example). Aim for the highest purity (99.9 percent) so that you avoid products which may have contaminants.

Understanding and using the information above as you shop for CBD products will enable you to narrow down your options from the seemingly endless variety of CBD products out there. As always, industry experts usually recommend that you contact industry actors like Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQB: PLPRF) and SinglePoint Inc. (OTCQB: SING) for additional information if you have queries.
