What to Watch Out For When Buying CBD-Related Products
Posted on November 6th, 2020 to AroMed CBD & Aromatherapy Blog
JereThere are a lot of CBD related products in the market, but the most common problem when dealing with CBD related products is how to differentiate and choose between the good products and the bad.
As a result, consumers tend to buy blindly and only base their decision on what is currently trending or swayed by products that just have a good marketing strategy without a good market track record.
This creates an environment where low-quality products flood the market. Aside from wasting your money on such low-quality products, you will also be deprived of the benefits that you should be getting.
Here are some things to look for when buying CBD related products:
Check the Label
When buying a CBD product – or any food or medicinal product for that matter – the label should always include a disclaimer and warning section. As the cliche goes, always check the label. This label should clearly indicate what is in the product – and avoid phrases like “at least” or “and additional” with regard to fillers.
Third-party Laboratory Testing
If a product has been tested by a third-party laboratory, lab reports should be readily available for the product. The unavailability of the lab results could mean a variety of things. Maybe the test revealed that it did not contain the proper amount of cannabinoids. Maybe the products are contaminated and contain substances that could be harmful to your body.
Without a lab report, there’s no way for you to confirm if the product is harmful or safe to use. Always check if the product was tested by a third-party laboratory for the sake of objectivity and transparency.
It is important to know the amount of THC present in the product. Although THC is legal in some states, it is illegal in others. Depending on the state, the maximum amount of THC allowed is between 0.3% to 0.5% or less. These amounts are generally considered safe and do not have psychoactive effects.
It’s good to know the legal boundaries of what you’re buying. Always check for the THC content of the products you’re buying.
Check the Ingredients
The active ingredients of the product that you’re buying are crucial since these elements, whether chemical or organic, will create an impact on your body. Always check if the product uses organic and plant based ingredients. If the ingredients are not listed on the product, be alarmed. Any shady representation of a product’s ingredients means the manufacturers are hiding something, so better steer clear of them.
Proper Dosing for CBD
It is important to know how much CBD is in the product. A lot of manufacturers do not include instructions for dosing because there’s no official dosage. A simple way to determine the amount of CBD in a single serving is to divide the content of one bottle by your desired number of servings. For example, a 30 ml bottle with a CBD of 500 mg is divided into 50 servings. You will have 10mg per serving.
Although there is no standard serving size, a consumer should always consider the concentration of CBD, the person’s current weight, the individual body chemistry, and the severity of the condition of the individual being treated. There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to the CBD because there is no standard dosage.
