Whenever a new product comes to market, there’s a rush around the advertising and the information provided. Which is better, which is more popular, who sells the most? But in the world of the CBD, it shouldn’t be about who is the most popular brand because it might not give you the benefits needed. It doesn’t matter about who sells the most because they are the cheapest. There are certain things to be looked for within the CBD oil to ensure that it’s high quality and worth the money. But what are those things? 

Does It Contain THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol is what is known as THC and it’s the cannabinoid within Cannabis Sativa that creates the feeling of being high. Before buying any CBD you need to check to see if the oil you’re looking at contains any THC as there are certain state laws you need to abide by. THC levels can also affect the quality of the CBD. 

CBD oil needs to have a THC concentration of 0.3% or lower according to federal law. Anything over and it will be down to state law. 

What’s Your Dosage? 

When it comes to buying CBD you first need to address how much you are going to need and how strong you need it. This is essential as you won’t know how much to take or how long it should last if you haven’t crunched the numbers. 

High street brands tend to have such low levels of CBD that they won’t affect you. Just because they are in front of you in a shop doesn’t mean they’re going to be the best. It can be difficult to find the best CBD oil brand you can trust when looking without much research. It’s best to find real-life user reviews to explain the benefits of each oil. This way you can see how it helps certain people and their conditions, making it much easier to decide on what might be the best for you. 

Read The Label 

We should be doing this with everything we buy to consume, but it’s a habit that’s difficult to get into. With CBD it’s important to look and compare what might be in your oil. Some companies pack their oils with other healthy things like melatonin or MCT oils, but on the same token, some companies don’t care much for making healthy organic products. CBD vape oils often contain potentially harmful ingredients such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. Edibles can also contain colorings, flavors, and other bad food products.

If you’re buying CBD products for the health benefits, then it’s best to check whether they’re actually healthy before purchasing. 

CBD is still in early testing days, despite being discovered in 1940. There is, however, research being conducted on a daily basis and the results so far are positive. It can help with such a wide range of conditions and ailments and it’s always worth having a try. If you’re worried then you can consult your doctor beforehand (it’s wise if you have a serious condition) or you can just see if it works for you.
