Looking into CBD products but not sure where to start? There are a lot of choices and it can be difficult to pick the best. How do you choose which products offer the most bang for your buck? Well, we’ve done our research so that you don’t have to. We’ve created this guide on what brands provide quality CBD at an affordable price.

When buying CBD, it is important to research where you are purchasing from and the quality of the product as this will have a significant impact on what affects you feel. So we always recommend to buy form a trusted source like The CBD Supplier.

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. One of the most important things to know about CBD is that it doesn’t contain THC, which means no high. More importantly, because CBD interacts with your immune system a different way than other drugs like acetaminophen do (anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsive), it’s an alternative treatment for people who suffer from chronic pain and inflammation.

Is CBD legal?

All hemp-derived CBD oils of 0.3% THC or less are legal federally, but illegal in some areas. Cannabis-derived CBD products are also federally illegal, but may be legal under some state laws. Check with your local legislation before using any CBD product for medicinal purposes.

Go for organic CBD product

All of the CBD oils look similar and may be confusing for some buyers. There are a few strategies that can help buyers narrow their choices, one of which is to buy organic CBD oil.

Organic CBD oil comes from organic hemp plants which have been used historically around the world as a way to remove impurities from soil. It does not contain harmful pesticides and is made using a pure, raw material with no additives or chemicals in it whatsoever unlike most other brands (about 95% of products).

Select a CBD product with high bioavailability

One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a CBD product is its bioavailability. It’s essentially defined as how much CBD you’re able to absorb in your body at one time. CBD oil drops offer greater bioavailability thanks to their direct absorption in the body. CBD capsules, on the other hand, will have to go through the digestive system before they can be absorbed.

Demand lab test result

In light of a surge in demand for third-party lab test results, regulators are scrambling to catch up.

Research by the Hemp Industries Association determined that there has been a dramatic rise in consumer preference for CBD products produced with hemp seed oil.

This trend is being driven through new legislation and regulation surrounding 3rd party laboratory validation for cannabis-based CBD products, effective July 1st, 2018.

Under these new regulations all cannabis-derived CBD oils must now be tested and labeled by a California Regional Laboratories member before they can be sold. This means that manufacturers will need to use only certified laboratories throughout the supply chain (farmers to processors) or have their product come back negative in those labs’ tests – or face steep monetary fines.

Check customers reviews

Before you buy, be sure to look at customer comments on the product you’re considering. Reviews from peer review sites should give you a good idea of what to expect from the product, and Google or Facebook may have articles about it that would provide information not available on the label.
