In the health and wellness industry, cannabidiol (CBD) has burst onto the scene with increasing popularity and no signs of slowing down. With their variety of forms, CBD products are widely available with hundreds of brands and items to choose from. To navigate a market inundated with products, it’s important for consumers to conduct research to ensure they purchase the best quality and find a reliable brand.


Let’s knock out the basics first. CBD is derived from the cannabis plant. Depending on the level of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found in a plant, growers and others refer to cannabis plants as either hemp or marijuana. Hemp has a lower level and meets nationwide legal standards of less than 0.3%, while marijuana’s higher THC levels produce a psychoactive element associated with getting high. CBD oil is made from these legal hemp plants.


The following tips will help you decide on a CBD brand.


Check the Label
When you read the label, you are looking for how much THC is present in the product. The amount of THC is an important factor when buying and selecting a brand. There is not a one-size-fits-all dosage. Lower doses of CBD oil produce different effects than higher doses. Full-spectrum CBD will have all the naturally occurring compounds of the cannabis, and the THC will not exceed 0.3%. Broad-spectrum CBD will have the naturally occurring compounds also, but the THC — or most of it — will have been removed. CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD. It is isolated from the other compounds of the plant and will have no THC. It is tasteless and odorless.


Consider Where the Hemp is Grown

The source of CBD products plays a critical role in its quality. Hemp plants are very absorbent. That makes the geographical locations and the soil in which it is grown vitally important. Hemp plants produced in rich soil will be of higher quality.


In addition, the country where the hemp is grown may sway your buying decision. Growers who sell in European countries and the U.S. are subject to strict guidelines and standards, giving you an extra assurance that the products have met regulations that have the consumer’s best interest in mind.


If you’re searching to find this information, it is typically located on the websites of the manufacturers and retailers in their customer support or frequently asked questions sections. Finding information should be easy. If it’s not, that could serve as a red flag.


Dig Deeper and Research More
Picking the best brand takes time and research. With thousands of brands in this growing industry and a broad spectrum of products, it is important to know what is best for you.
