What t o l ook out f or in purchasing High Qual it y CBD Oil : Unfortunately, there?s a lack of transparency and regulation that currently exists in the marketplace. Driven by the desire to turn a quick buck, producers use misleading marketing and deceptive advertising, banking on the fact that people are ignorant and in need. Not all brands are reputable. Here are 3 standards to look for when purchasing CBD medical hemp oil. 1. Ext ract ion Met hods To obtain CBD-rich oil, you need to extract it from the cannabis plant. There are a handful of methods used, but typically this isn?t something customers know to ask about. ?Cannabis oil made with neurotoxic solvents like butane and hexane may leave unsafe residues that compromise immune function and impede healing,? explains Constance, founder and CEO of Constance Therapeutics. Beware of companies who try to convince you that using a hydrocarbon method stays the most true to the plant. Butane is illegal for a reason. Finally, olive oil or coconut oil can also be used to extract cannabis oil. According Dr. Arno Hazekamp, director of phytochemical research at Bedrocan BV, which supplies medical cannabis for the Dutch Health Ministry, this method is both safe and inexpensive. 2. Qual it yThe quality of CBD oil is really based on its source; where was it grown, how was it grown, and what is the species of cannabis (e.g., sativa, ruderalis, or indica). ?The soil, climate, plants growing on the farm next door, the flowers in the farmer?s garden, etc. are all reflected in the final essence of the plant,? says Finley. If the soil is polluted with heavy metals, then that plant will likely contain high levels of lead or mercury. Look for brands who source their cannabinoids from German-certified, hemp-grown farms in pristine regions of Europe. Also, look for ingredients that are certified organic and wildcrafted.? 3. Document at ion: Meanwhile, independent testing by accredited laboratories with globally accepted analytical methods ensures the organic extract is intact from pesticides, heavy metals, or microbiological contaminants. And reputable CBD companies have lab results from independent labs available on their websites. This can also be used as an indicator for consumers about what companies are providing high quality CBD. One such company is Native Hemp Solutions which is a new brand, jointly developed with EnerHealth and CWC Labs (Mike Adams of Natural News Science Lab), where the product is screened and verified for its authentic organic CBD oil. As serving size or dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best t o st art smal l and gradual l y increase unt il you experience t he desired resul t . When purchasing a CBD product, keep in mind that a transparent company?s CBD milligram (mg) strength is reflective of the actual active CBD in that particular product. If a bottle says 250 mg of CBD, then that product should contain 250 mg of actual active CBD in the entire bottle. This means that each full dropper contains 8.5 mg Cannabidiol (CBD) However, a lot of companies currently in the market will list the mg dosage of their CBD hemp oil without publishing the strength of their actual active CBD.? You can buy a 30 ml bottle at 250 mg, 500 mg or 1000 mg. How Much CBD Oil Shoul d I Take?
