First and foremost, you get what you pay for when it comes to CBD oil. If you're buying your CBD from the gas station for under $10 bucks, keep your money and use it on something else.
If you're looking on Amazon and you see 2 bottles of 1000mg hemp oil for $29.99, please use your common sense and your gut feelings. High quality CBD oil should not be cheap, but it doesn't need to be a car payment either.
As for some of the technical stuff, your CBD oil should have the following things:
Full Spectrum Profile - the hemp plant has over 100 cannabinoids in it, and CBD is the most abundant of the cannabinoids. While some CBD oils have removed everything except the CBD, making it an isolate, the oil actually works better for your body when the entire plant is present. Demand a full spectrum CBD product.
Non-GMO - GMO's are just plain evil... period. If we have to explain why GMO's are bad, then please do some research on them (look up Monsato) and you'll see why we say what we say.
Made in the USA - As for right now, you want your CBD oil to come from hemp farms that are located in the United States. While this may not always be the case in the future, until solid regulations come to pass, you're better off with product sourced in the USA.
3rd Party Lab Tested - While we like to believe companies and while we like to believe everything on the Internet is true, it's better to be safe than sorry. Any reputable CBD oil company and product will have a COA, or Certificate Of Analysis, which is a test from an independent 3rd party that shows exactly what is in the CBD oil. If a product doesn't have one, run away... fast!
Organic in Processes and Standards - At the current time of this information, it's still illegal to federally certify CBD oil as organic, but it's coming. However, that doesn't mean that every step in the process from growing to extraction to production can't be done with organic standards and practices. It can, and should be at this point in time. If organic standards aren't being used, run away again... fast!
Less than .3% THC (which ours is a true 0% THC) - For hemp-derived CBD to be federally legal, it has to have less than .3% THC in the final product. The COA of the product will verify this. While having such small trace amounts will absolutely not get you high, you might fail a drug test after taking the CBD oil for enough time. Lucky for you, our CBD oil is 100% THC FREE, and full spectrum, so you don't have to worry about failing any drug tests.
