How to Choose High-Quality CBD Oil

Cannabidiol oil (CBD oil) provides several health benefits not only for humans but for animals too. However, not all CBD oils are created equal. In fact, just recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned 15 companies for violating the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act by illegally selling products containing cannabidiol. Hence, you need to choose legitimate, high-quality CBD oil.

Finding good quality CBD oil requires some research. Here are a few tips and pointers to help you choose the best CBD product.


Know its source

Growing good quality hemp requires good quality soil and growing conditions. We want to avoid contaminants dangerous to one’s health such as heavy metals (ex. mercury and lead) and pesticides. In addition, we want to ensure that the CBD products do not contain too much THC. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the component of hemp and marijuana responsible for the psychoactive effects that give the feeling of “high”. Over-the-counter CBD products should not contain over 0.3 percent THC. This ensures they are legal and that they will not produce a feeling of being high when used. It’s best to buy CBD oil from US-based manufacturers that comply with the country’s legal standards for THC.


Check for third-party testing

Third-party laboratory testing is a quality control process by an independent company to maintain objectivity in disclosing the results of quality and purity tests. This will determine if your CBD oil is from a reputable source—without heavy metals and pesticides. This also ensures the manufacturer’s compliance with government regulations. With CBD oil, the THC content should not be over 0.3 percent. Look for the product’s Certificate of Analysis and check the testing company’s lab accreditation for validity in choosing your CBD oil.


The manufacturer’s commitment says it all

Be sure to get your CBD oil from reputable sources to address your needs and ensure its quality, efficacy, and safety.
