It is not surprising to note that many people have started buying cannabis CBD-infused products in the recent past. This is probably because of two main reasons. Firstly, CBD, though extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant species, doesn’t make you feel high or intoxicated. Secondly, CBD contains a lot of antioxidants that are important for your overall physical & mental health.
However, not everyone can experience the benefits of CBD, even after using them for a long time. Are you one of them? Are you not finding any relief from your pain or inflammation-related problems even after making CBD a daily part of your lives? If yes, the problem is not with your body, but with the product that you have been using. In all probability, you could have been using a fake CBD-infused product.
How do you ensure that the CBD product that you are buying s genuine? All you need to do is to stay away from these mistakes, and make the right purchase decision.
Buying very low-priced CBD products
The processes of growing hemp on organic soils and extracting the highest quality of CBD from them are not only tedious but expensive as well. Even after these processes, the manufacturer of CBD has to pay a large sum to reputed laboratories to test and certify their products.
Hence, the ultimate product that comes to the market does have a steep price on its tag. The cost is the prime factor that helps you determine the quality of the CBD product that you are buying. Cheap-priced CBD products may have very little CBD in them. Also, they might not have been extracted properly, leaving behind toxic residues in them.
Not differentiating between hemp-sourced CBD and marijuana-sourced CBD
Many people wrongly assume that all CBD products are safe. Yes, CBD is safe and doesn’t make you feel intoxicated. However, this rule is applicable only if it sourced from the hemp plants. CBD sourced from marijuana plants contain high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a compound that makes you feel stoned.
Therefore, before buying the product, you need to check from where it sourced. Always buy hemp-driven CBD after seeing how much THC it contains. While some countries allow CBD consumption, only if it contains 0% THC, most countries allow CBD consumption if it contains less than 0.3% THC.
Not reading the label carefully
Many people only check the label of the CBD product to see the THC content. Though it is important to know this, that’s not all about reading the label. You have to know all details about the product, such as the source of hemp cultivation, certificate of analysis by reputed laboratories to know if the CBD product was tested, all the ingredients used in making the product, the method in which CBD was extracted and much more.
Never try to rush into the process of experiencing results after using CBD. It is not an overnight process. What are you using CBD for? Which form of CBD are you consuming? The answers to these questions will define how quickly you will see the positive effects on your physical & mental health. You can talk to your doctor before using CBD, so that you know what to expect out of the process.
