CBD can be an asset to your health and comfort. So, it’s always best to be as sure as possible with your consumer decision. However, aside from performing standard research through checking testimonials and the praise of friends and family who may have used a particular product, there are several things you should look into before making a final purchase.

We’ve already discussed some of the myths and misconceptions to stay away from when shopping for a quality CBD oil or gummy product. But, what should you know beyond the surface information?

Here are some of the best points of interest to look into as you journey into the world of CBD use.

Look for a Certificate of Authenticity (COA)

Any CBD product that is worth its weight in gold will come with a COA attached to its name. A COA means that your product was tested by an independent party and is deemed an authentic product.

A COA will provide you with essential information that includes:

  • The types of cannabinoids in the product 
  • Accurate CBD and THC concentrations of your product
  • An analysis of pesticides or heavy metals found in the product during testing

All of the information found on a COA can help you make the most educated decision possible for your purchase. One thing you won’t find, however, is FDA approval.

Epidiolex is the only CBD product that is FDA approved. So, if the organization you are thinking of buying your product from says their gummies, tinctures, and oils are FDA approved, it’s best to find a different manufacturer.

Understand Why You Want to Try CBD

CBD has the potential to help people take control of some health problems that can make their lives difficult. Before you start using CBD, talk with a doctor to find out if this route is a viable possibility for relief. 

Knowing why you need CBD can help you determine the proper dosage amounts necessary for potential relief and can make your experience with CBD products a successful one. 

Some reasons that people turn to CBD include the following health conditions:

  • Epilepsy
  • Stress
  • Anxiety 
  • Skin Conditions
  • Depression
  • Chronic Pain

Compare the THC Content to Your State’s Laws

Although CBD as a whole is Federally legal, it’s always best to check the THC content levels in any CBD product you buy. A legitimate purchase will contain THC levels of 0.3% or lower. Products at these THC levels are legal in most states and should be legally safe for use.

If you want to purchase CBD products with higher THC content in them, it is possible, but, you should always check your state’s laws to find out the legality behind the use of cannabis in your area.

Your CBD experience should be relaxing, not one that ends in legal ramifications.

Find Out Where the Hemp was Sourced

CBD is sourced from the legal plant, Hemp. Much like when you shop for organic fruits and vegetables, it’s always best to know where your hemp was sourced from and the farming practices of the manufacturer. 

You want your hemp to be grown as organically as possible. So, be wary of any farmers that use pesticides during the growing season. These chemicals can seep into hemp plants and show up in your CBD purchase.

Check the Price of Your Product

Genuine, legal CBD products are bound to be similarly priced. Before you buy, shop around and compare prices between other brands and your brand of interest. If you find that yours is significantly higher in price than the others, you may be paying high shipping costs or it could be an overpriced, flashy package.

Always buy locally or from an online store that offers shipping options that are easily accessible and won’t be a surprise financial gauge. 

Spending a little extra money on CBD products isn’t always bad, however. The right extra ingredients in a specific product could be the difference between a decent experience and a great experience.

Understand Potential Side Effects

It’s known that a quality CBD product only contains extremely minimal amounts of THC. CBD products are not going to produce a “high” or psychedelic effect, but based on your body composition, there is always the possibility of physical side effects.

Before using CBD, talk with your doctor and find out if these products could be a good fit for your health regimen. Jumping head-first into CBD without the green-light from a physician could lead to:

  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Appetite changes
  • DIarrhea 
  • Fatigue
