There are a few things that you should know before purchasing CBD or CBD products. Below are a few questions to ask before making a purchase.
Are CBD products right for me?
CBD and CBD products are not for everyone. If you don't know what CBD is or have other questions about CBD, you can read our blog to learn more.
Pure CBD products are not intended for use under the age of 18. Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating. Consult your physician before use if you have a medical condition or are taking any medication.
Why 25mg of CBD per bath bomb?
We spoke with several physicians and healthcare professionals and were overwhelmingly advised that 25mg of CBD in a bath is sufficient. There are products with larger amounts of CBD in them but it may not be necessary. If the CBD oil used is of the highest quality then less really is more, according to Dr. Sakina Davis MD and Holistic Medicine Expert.
Is the CBD real or synthetic and why should I care?
A lot of companies are trying to cash in on the rising popularity of CBD. Be cautious and make sure any CBD products you purchase contain real and/or naturally distilled CBD, not synthetic. Synthetic CBD has been known to produce significant and even dangerous side-effects. Be careful.
Does the CBD have traceability?
CBD's journey begins with the growth and cultivation of Hemp plants. The CBD is then extracted in a laboratory using either a whole plant extraction process or an isolate extraction process; each process will yield different results.
Do you know where the hemp is being grown, what process is being used to extract the CBD, and where the extraction process is happening?
What is a COA and why is it important to have?
A Certificate of Analysis, or COA, is an important document that confirms the product meets requirements. In the case of CBD Oil, this means that the oil contains the amount of CBD advertised and other useful information like how much of the other cannabidiols it might contain. It's good to obtain a COA from both the seller or first party and a third party such as an external company.
