With so many dispensaries popping up selling CBD, it is not a matter of where you can buy CBD, but rather where can you buy high quality, 100 percent pure CBD. Companies everywhere are popping up online and making claims that their CBD products are pure. But, how do you know?
The first way to tell if you are getting pure, high-quality CBD is by checking the company’s website to see if it gets its products tested by a third-party lab. If it does, you should compare the results from the tests to what the company claims about its products. You should be able to find the third-party lab tests easily on the company’s website. If you cannot find it, you should call or email and ask where you can see the results.
A reputable, honest company that claims its CBD is of high quality and 100 percent pure and free from pesticides and other harmful toxins will gladly showcase its third party test results on its website.
Keep in mind the type of CBD you are buying
If you are looking buy 100 percent pure CBD, ask yourself what that means to you. There are three different types of CBD you can purchase: full-spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate.
So, let’s take a look closer at what each of these mean…
- Full spectrum CBD is made from CBD along with all the other compounds found in the hemp plant. These other compounds have health benefits of their own and by extracting them with CBD, an entourage effect is created. This means each compound enhances the benefits and effects of the others. So, even though full spectrum CBD isn’t necessarily “pure,” because it has THC, terpenes, and other compounds, it usually has the highest health benefits. If you purchase a full spectrum CBD, just make sure it is derived from organically grown hemp and does not contain additives.
- Broad spectrum CBD is essentially full spectrum CBD minus any THC. This form of CBD also has compounds found in the hemp plant such as terpenes that create extra and enhanced health benefits.
- CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD. This is because it is straight CBD without any other compounds. During the manufacturing process all other compounds such as terpenes and THC are completely removed, so the CBD is left purely on its own. While this is considered the purest form of CBD, the benefits aren’t as strong as the entourage effect is not present.
