How to Buy CBD Oil.
Thinking about buying some CBD Oil. Watch this video to make sure that you’re making a well-informed decision.
What is CBD OIL?
A concentrated extract from the plant species Cannabis Sativa L. containing higher amounts of CBD than THC. By the way the “L.” stands for first initial of the last name of the guy that classified marijuana, Carl Linnaeus. People like to name things after themselves.
What is CBD?
CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol, is one of the many chemicals made by the plant Cannabis Sativa L. Now, the plant Cannabis Sativa L. can be subdivided into 2 categories, HEMP or CANNABIS.
The main difference between HEMP and CANNABIS is a legal one. It comes down to the amount of THC. So, per section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014, hemp is defined as having less than 0.3% THC, and therefore by default CANNABIS has more than 0.3% THC.
Basically, HEMP CBD OIL has less THC in it. And CANNABIS CBD OIL has more THC in it.
How to buy CBD OIL.
Here’s the thing, for as long as the industry stays unregulated, you are bound to find snake-oil salesmen that’ll make all sorts of unqualified claims about their products to make a quick buck.
So, really it’s on you to be a smart consumer. And, how do you become a smart consumer. I’ll teach you. I’ve come up with a list of criteria for my patients to use when buying a CBD OIL, which are
1. Is the maker of the CBD Oil accountable to anyone?
It’s when a company isn’t accountable to anyone, that to make a quick buck, they may use deceptive and misleading marketing and advertising and get away with it.
Now, in some states where marijuana is legal for either medical or recreational use, there are rules and regulations in place that the makers of the CBD Oils have to abide by. So, for patients in states where marijuana is legal for medical and/or recreational use, they’re better off purchasing the CBD Oil from state-licensed medical facilities that are authorized to dispense marijuana and hemp products.
Now, there’s the whole question of buying CBD Oil off the internet. Like I showed you with the laboratory test results that the FDA carried out, it’s much more difficult to trust the quality of what you’re being sold.
2. Is the product laboratory tested?
Is the product laboratory tested? The company that made the product should be able to present to you the most recent laboratory test results for the product. And, at the very least, the laboratory test results should state the exact amounts of the cannabinoids, so THC and CBD, in the product.
3. What was the CBD extracted in?
Sure, it’s called an oil. But, it may not be an oil. Many times the CBD is extracted in a hydrocarbon like butane, for instance, which can be harmful to your health. So, check to ask what the CBD was extracted in.
There you have it. Now you know how to purchase CBD oil!
