One of the biggest issues people seem to have when it comes to CBD, is not knowing which products to buy, or simply which companies they can trust. There are a lot of companies out there, with more popping up almost daily, so it's certainly difficult for someone who's new to everything. One can walk into a store and be faced with 10 or 20 different brands, with each having a variety of products. My goal for this blog is to be a quick guide of things to look for to help you navigate and choose a solid company.
Where is the product coming from?
Personally, I like to know where my products are coming from and who's behind them. When it comes to CBD you should look into the company and see where they get their hemp from. Are they growing it themselves, or purchasing it elsewhere? What are their growing practices such as pesticide and herbicide usage? There are a lot of nasty practices that certain companies engage in which should never be used on Cannabis, yet this is happens throughout the industry. Consumer health should always be number one! Honestly, finding the following information may not be the easiest, but if you reach out to the company they should be more then willing to share. We aim to be as open as possible and are even documenting the hemp we currently have growing. In fact we're due for an update, so I'll be posting a new video this week.
If you've done a little bit of digging you've probably heard various people and companies speak on the importance of lab work. Before purchasing any CBD related products you should ask for the lab work associated with it, so that you can verify what's listed on the bottle is actually in there. I also feel that if you're on a companies website that the lab work should be posted and easy to find. I've looked into a lot of companies that speak highly of their products, yet their sites contain no lab work at all. Consumers should not have to reach out and ask for lab work as it should be easily accessible.
At the end of the day the most important thing is to find a company that you can trust, because one can easily lie or even fake lab work. That said there are honest companies out there and if you ever have any questions concerning a certain brand, please reach out to me through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be more than happy to offer my suggestions and help you find a trustworthy company, even if it's not my own. Would much rather someone have a positive experience and hopefully benefit from CBD, instead of throwing money away and being left with a negative stance towards it. I hope this blog has offered some insight in what to look for and as I said if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us!
