Three Things To Look For When Buying CBD Products

by Amelia Graves

CBD products of all kinds are gaining extreme popularity. Their ability to help provide pain relief, inflammation relief, and even aid in controlling some chronic conditions is something many are eager to seek out. However, if you simply walk into a gas station or smoke shop and walk out with a CBD product, you may not be getting what you wanted. Here are three things you should be looking for when you purchase anything containing CBD.

THC Content

CBD and THC often go hand-in-hand, but this may not be what you want. THC is the psychoactive component of marijuana that makes people get "high." If you're not interested in this or it's illegal in your area, you'll need to look for a product that strictly contains CBD.

Reputable products will usually let you know if they contain any THC. There will either be a measurement indicating how much THC is in the package (which may be 0 — they'll still list it) or the product will inform you that it's derived from hemp, not marijuana, which contains CBD but no THC.

CBD Content

Another thing to look for is the exact amount of CBD in the product. Some products are now being sold that technically contain CBD, but have such small amounts of it that gaining any benefit from the product is questionable. However, if your CBD product states exactly how much CBD is in it, you will likely benefit.

For this, you'll want to check the label, or the product description on the website if buying online, for information on the milligrams of CBD in the product. This will usually be written out like "100 mg," which means 100 milligrams. Even small amounts of CBD can help, but if you don't know how much you're getting, there may not be enough to provide a significant boost.

Additional Ingredients

Another thing you want to ensure is on the label or product description is what else the product contains. While CBD can be very helpful, certain side ingredients may be harmful to you depending on your personal sensitivities. Keep an eye out for any allergens that you know you're sensitive to or allergic to. You can also look for things like preservatives, artificial flavoring, and alcohol. CBD products come in all shapes and sizes these days, so if one product doesn't fit your needs, don't fret. There are likely many more offered by the company you're buying from that will offer a significant amount of CBD without any side ingredients you don't want.
