How to Get the Most from Your CBD Purchase

October 20, 2020

Indeed, CBD is everywhere and in everything. But you shouldn't buy just any CBD-labeled product from just anywhere.

While CBD has shown great potentials for several health conditions, the wrong product might ruin your whole expectation – and, worse, leave you sick.

Many so-called CBD manufacturers do not regard consumer's health and satisfaction. They have one SOLE purpose – defraud unsuspecting customers and cash out on the fast-growing CBD market. Ultimately, consumers, particularly newbies, bear the brunt of such shady practices.

To get the best out of your CBD products, these tips should help:

#1. Watch for THC concentration

Before you make your CBD order, check your state laws on CBD and cannabis products generally.

Although CBD is widely legal, many states still prohibit products with over .3 percent THC concentration.

So when shopping, remember to cross-check the THC content with your state's highest permissible THC concentration in products. If you're in a state with legal recreational cannabis and do not mind dosing high THC concentration, then ignore this tip.

#2. Check the ingredients

The ingredients should be a typical basis for comparing products.

Some products contain additives like MCT oils and melatonin for additional potency. However, some others contain outright harmful chemicals like vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, common in CBD-infused vape oils.

Also, while additives like flavors and colorings may not pose serious health concerns, they are needless for your health.

#3. Know the different terms

Typically, you'd find three tags on CBD products; full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. Know what you need:

  • Full-spectrum CBD oil

CBD oil is tagged Full-spectrum oil when extracted with ALL the natural-occurring compound in the hemp plant – including THC, though in wee-bit concentrations within THC-regulated areas.

  • Broad Spectrum CBD oil

As with the full-spectrum, broad-spectrum may contain all other terpenes, flavonoids, essentials oils, and other cannabinoids in the hemp plant – Except THC.

  • CBD Isolate

As the term hints, CBD isolate is CBD-only. That is, during extraction, the CBD compound is separated from all other plant bodies to achieve pure CBD. In this state, CBD is said to be in its purest state, with up to 99 percent CBD concentration.

#4. Check the lab report

If the product has no third-party lab test result with a Certificate of Analysis, click away. With the truckload of fake products with misleading labeling, COA sets the fakes apart from genuine.

For clarity, a COA investigates a product's content to verify the claims on the product labels.  View Mary Jane's Lab Reports.

#5. Check reviews

One sure way to build an expectation about a product is to see what previous buyers think. Since you can't rely on the product description, reading users' genuine feedback will go a long way.

#6. Don't overstock

This is as simple as it sounds. To get the best from your CBD purchases, know how much you need and buy accordingly. This will help you avoid wastage and deterioration over time. Also, do not open the seal causally until you need to use it.

Wrap Up - Store smartly

Common knowledge says proper storage will help your CBD oil stay fresh for longer. For the best storage, keep your oil in an airtight bottle or bag. You may also refrigerate to discourage bacteria growth and extend its shelf life.
