The legalization of CBD products came with a string of strict rules. The reason behind these rules is to curb the sale of unsafe CBD products to the public and to control user consumption. With that said, you need to know that not every CBD product you see on the streets is safe. Some of the products pose a danger to the user.

That is why you need to be careful with the type of products you purchase. To ensure you end up buying safe CBD products, here is a list of seven things you need to consider before making the purchase: 

 

Are the products from cannabis or hemp?

Most people tend to use the terms cannabis and hemp interchangeably, and that is wrong. There is a huge difference between these two. That narrows down to the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC available in the product.

THC is famous for its psychoactive effects, and that is why CBD products lack the compound. In most nations like Canada and the United States, the law allows the use of CBD products that have less than 0.3% of THC. That is because such low levels of THC does not cause the psychoactive effect.

 

Are you buying it from a trusted company?

Most people tend to make a mistake in purchasing CBD products from vague companies. That often leads to misinformation and other sorts of problems that may end up affecting your health. You need to consider a trusted company like weedsmart whenever you are purchasing CBD products.

That is because such a company has a valid license to trade CBD products and so they offer quality products to avoid lawsuits. You will also find that such companies provide accurate information in terms of the dosage and strength of the product. With those things, consider yourself safe. 

 

Consider the strength of CBD 

Different potencies of cannabidiol exist for different people. So before going ahead and initiating the purchase, consider the strength of CBD in the product. You should also know that the stronger the CBD, the more the price and the more effective the product is. It is, however, advisable that if you are a starter, you first pick the products with less strength so that you can gauge how much your body can take. If you have any doubts about the strength you need, you can go ahead and ask the seller. Additional reading on various sites can also be done to clear the doubts. 

 

Is the product CBD isolate, broad-spectrum or full-spectrum?

Understanding the terms broad-spectrum, CBD isolates, and full-spectrum is very important. People have varied opinions when it comes to the type of CBD product you should go for in relation to the three options. Full-spectrum is the type of CBD product that contains both CBD and other compounds found in the hemp or cannabis plant. That includes CBG, CBN, and CBC. Broad-spectrum contains other compounds but not THC. CBD isolates contain only CBD and no other compounds. The reason why these are the main things to consider when buying CBD is that it helps you get exactly what you want. For maximum benefits, consider full or broad-spectrum CBD products. 

 

The pricing of the products

It is a reflex for someone to opt for cheaper products compared to expensive ones. You should, however, be aware that in the world of CBD, cheap always raises red flags. Also, if the product is expensive and the buyer allows you to bargain further, then you should start asking questions. Genuine CBD products don’t come cheap. That is because the process it has to undergo from growth to processing is lengthy and complicated. That makes them end up being more expensive since every precaution is put in place to ensure its safety. So one of the CBD buyer’s guide is pricing.

 

The test results

Don’t be afraid to ask for third party test results for the product before making a purchase. The company selling the product should display the test results so that the user knows what he or she is about to consume.

Some of the things you are going to see include the terpene levels, cannabinoid levels, and whether there are any pesticides available in the product. Reputable companies also go ahead to make their own tests to see if the results match those of their suppliers. Such a company is not only genuine but also transparent, and so it is safe to buy the products from them. 

 

The extraction methods used

Most people tend to ignore this fact, not knowing that the type of extraction method used to get the CBD product is crucial. That is because it determines whether the product is pure or not. The best extraction method is CO2 extraction. That is because it tends to produce pure substances while maintaining the levels of compounds such as terpene and cannabinoids. It also ensures that no foreign elements are available in the CBD product. 

These are some of the essential things to consider before purchasing CBD products. The industry is full of cunning people whose main aim is to take advantage of the buyer and make huge profits. You should thus be on the lookout to make sure that you are buying safe and top-quality CBD products.
