If you spend time on the internet, you must have heard of cannabidiol (CBD). Despite being relatively unknown five years ago, the hemp extract has taken the world completely by storm. Numerous countries have already legalized CBD in some way, and many more are working on policies that would allow the sale of CBD products.
Consumers, on the other hand, can’t stop singing cannabidiol’s praises. Most of the research into CBD is in its preliminary stages, but users still swear by it, saying it’s effective against a number of conditions including chronic pain, anxiety and high blood pressure.
However, the CBD sector hasn’t been fully regulated yet, and regulatory authorities like the FDA have expressed concern that a lot of the CBD products on the market aren’t safe. There are still a number of legit, high-quality products out there, you just have to know how to find them. Here are the top 3 mistakes you need to avoid when buying CBD oil.
Basing your choice on price alone. Most of us look at the price before purchasing anything. In most cases, you can get a cheaper version that works more or less the same. However, it’s a different story when it comes to CBD. Most new buyers, as well as those on a tight budget, will opt for the cheaper CBD products.
While that’s understandable, it isn’t always the best move. CBD isn’t properly regulated yet, and the market is filled with low quality, and in many cases, contaminated cannabidiol products. And to get these subpar products to sell, companies will offer cheaper price tags for them.
Ignoring Customer Feedback. In the short time that CBD has been legal, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued warning letters to numerous companies, telling them to refrain from making unsubstantiated medical claims about their CBD products. If you choose to go by the company’s word, you might find yourself out of your hard-earned cash, while also dealing with adverse health effects.
The only way to avoid this is to pour through customer reviews, especially if you’re buying online. Granted, it’s boring and tedious work, but it’s the best way to make sure the CBD oil you buy is safe and works as advertised.
Not knowing enough about CBD. One of CBD’s best features is that it can be infused into quite a number of products, thus it can be found in everything from tinctures and topical creams to oral and nasal sprays. On top of that, the chemical has a wide range of effects, and most of the time, they aren’t standardized. Different people will react differently to CBD.
Going in blind won’t do you any favors. The only way you can buy a CBD product that has the desired effect is to find out everything you can about CBD, all the types of CBD products and their effects and side effects. If you know what’s on the market, and the kind of product that will create the effects you seek, you’ll be able to sift through the chaff and find exactly what you need.
It is believed that while established companies like Plus Products Inc. (CSE: PLUS) (OTCQX: PLPRF) follow stringent in-house quality standards, others aren’t so meticulous, so you would be well-advised to keep the mistakes above in mind as you buy CBD products.
