CBD is far from an innovative subject in the cannabis industry by this point. In fact, for many cannabis advocates it’s the one cannabinoid they wouldn’t give up. Not that THC isn’t right up there with it, but CBD offers benefits that THC cannot provide.
On the other hand:
Yes, there are benefits that both cannabinoids share, or in some cases, benefits that are complementary to each other. But CBD extracts can provide their benefits without any psychoactive effects, which is precisely the reason why some people might prefer to consume CBD alone.
Like any other cannabis extract, CBD is produced by submitting the plant to extraction processes, in the case of CBD, we would be talking about a hemp plant more often than not. Whether those processes use solvents or not, well, that’s an entirely different topic.
Once CBD has been extracted it can come in the form of an oil, that is, if the extract is suspended in a carrier oil like MCT or coconut oil. Alternatively, it can also come in the form of a tincture; which is just a fancy word for an oil-free extract.
As we already discussed briefly, CBD derives from the hemp plant. A type of cannabis plant with a low level of THC. This is important to know because Hemp CBD usually has less than a 0.3% THC concentration, which is what makes it legal in most states where THC is not.
Ingredient Quality: You’ll want to check if the product is organic, what sorts of additives it has, and if it’s not an isolate product then what sort of oil is the extract diluted in.
Taste: If you’re investing a bit of coin into a high-quality CBD tincture, then you might as well make sure you buy one that tastes nice. There’s a long list of flavors to choose from, so find a brand you trust and research their offering.
Lab Testing: I like to give priority to products that do third-party testing, it makes me feel much more at ease. I feel like I’m getting a product that is truly put to the test because the lab’s reputation is put to the test, rather than the brand’s rep. Also, you might want to check the date the testing was done if that sort of information is available to you.
Brand Reputation: We all have favorite brands for something, the same thing happens with CBD tinctures. Make sure you’re buying oils from brands you trust; a way to go about it is to ask your trusted budtender for brand advice.
