How to Choose CBD Brands You Can TrustMelissa Dugan
It’s no secret that CBD has become quite a popular supplement across the country in recent years. Since the federal government passed the Farm Bill in 2018, legalizing the sale of hemp and all hemp derived products containing less than .3% THC, CBD products have virtually exploded onto the market. In your community, you may see CBD stores, spas offering massages, facials, and topical applications containing CBD. There may even be CBD-infused coffee and tea beverages at your grocery store or local coffee shop. Beyond that, there are numerous online providers selling CBD products of all kinds.
All of this excitement about CBD is wonderful, as CBD does, in fact, offer a wide variety of benefits to those who make it a regular part of their routine. In many ways, CBD truly is the “wonder supplement” that it is described to be. Nevertheless, it is also true that not all CBD products are created equal. With CBD products, as is the case with many products, the final result is ultimately only as good as the care and attention to quality that goes into creating the product from the very beginning.
This ultimately begs the question: How do you choose a CBD provider that you can trust? It is a good question and one worthy of an answer. After all, there is no point in adding a supplement to your daily routine that ultimately fails to deliver the benefits you desire. With that said, here are a few things to keep in mind as you attempt to find a CBD provider that sells the premium high-quality products that you want:
- Look closely at the THC content of the products you are considering: Certainly, it is important to many people, whether for religious, personal, or professional reasons (or a combination of all three) not to experience the psychoactive effects that often come with consuming high concentrations of THC. This is not to mention that, from a federally legal standpoint, CBD products should contain .3% or less THC. In some cases, a provider might source their CBD from the marijuana variety of the cannabis plant, as opposed to the hemp variety, which is naturally lower in THC. Choosing a CBD product that has more than .3% THC also means that you need to be certain you are in a state that has officially legalized cannabis, and that the dispensary is licensed to sell the product. Ultimately, there are simply more complications and qualifications for purchasing such products than is the case for CBD products that meet the federal standard. That is why it might be important to seek out a provider, like Pharmstrong™, that can assure customers that its products are below the .3% THC threshold – and, in fact, contain no THC at all. Providers who truly care about this issue are able to utilize sophisticated extraction and purification processes in order to be certain that this is the case. A premium product and peace of mind – both are important, and you deserve both as a customer.
- Clear labeling: When choosing a CBD provider, the importance of clear and honest labeling cannot be overstated. When it comes to growing hemp, as is the case with any other plant, growing methods are important. Choosing a provider who utilizes all-natural growing methods and can verify that the product you are using is free of contaminants, pesticides, solvents and other unwanted chemicals is important and should not be overlooked. Choose a provider that lab tests each of its products and clearly labels those products so that you know exactly which ingredients you are consuming.
- CBD Content: Knowing exactly how much CBD a product contains is also an important consideration when choosing a CBD brand. Some companies may include only a minimal amount of CBD and advertise their product as a CBD product, even if it ultimately does not contain enough CBD to truly deliver any benefits. Choose a company with thorough, honest labeling to ensure that you are satisfied with the product or products you choose.
- Reputation: Last, but certainly not least, it is important to consider the reputation of the CBD brand you are considering. As is the case with many products, personal recommendations are often the best. Ask friends and family members, who have had positive experiences using CBD, where they purchased their products. Look online for ratings and reviews. Read those reviews carefully and choose a provider that has a strong reputation to back up the claims about the products they offer.
