4 Questions to Ask When Selecting CBD Products

August 12, 2019 15:00:20

Have you just decided to buy and use a CBD product for the first time? Here are some useful questions that you should look into as you do your research on the best product to select.

Where is the Company Based?

Given that CBD products are relatively new and there are no specific regulations governing the industry at the federal level, it is important for you to find out where a CBD product maker is located.

For example, if that manufacturer is based in Colorado, Oregon, Alaska and Washington State, then you can be sure that what the product label says is true. This is because in these states, CBD products are subjected to rigorous testing requirements in order to confirm that any information provided on the label is accurate. For instance, the CBD content of any oil is verified before a given product batch is cleared for the market.

Knowledge of the location of the company making the CBD product you wish to buy will therefore allow you to do your due diligence about the product.

What Certification or Product Verification Information is Available?

It is also possible for you to buy CBD products made by companies that are based in states which don’t have specific regulations for the CBD industry if the manufacturers of those products get their products certified or tested by third party laboratories.

Given that many people buy CBD products online and have them shipped to their address, it is vital that you check for the availability of independent laboratory test results on a website of a manufacturer of CBD products. Certifications can also suffice in lieu of the test results. In this way, you will be sure that you have selected the right product for your needs.

From Which Plant Part Was the CBD Extracted?

CBD is usually extracted from hemp flowers and hemp leaves. Some CBD is also present in the stalks, but this is usually limited. If you see a company saying that it extracts its CBD from other plants of the plant, such as the seeds, then that product may not be what it claims to be. For example, hempseed oil isn’t CBD oil, so don’t mistake one for the other.

What Else is in the Product?

Read the ingredient list and be sure that only CBD-related ingredients are in the CBD product you wish to buy. For example, if you are buying a CBD tincture, it shouldn’t have any artificial or other ingredients, such as shea butter. Otherwise, how sure will you be that the outcomes you see are due to the CBD or the other ingredients?

Analysts believe that CBD industry actors like VIVO Cannabis Inc. (TSX.V: VIVO) (OTCQX: VVCIF) and VPR Brands LP (OTC: VPRB) have their work cut out to educate the public so that only the best products get a share of the market.
