How to pick the best CBD

Though the legality and the effectiveness of CBD and its products are still not fully clear, the demand and supply for CBD or Cannabidiol and its products continue to rise.  At the moment, there is no doubt that CBD has come to stay. One of the questions that have continued to pop up in the mind of consumers out there is how to pick the best CBD?  Picking the best CBD may be straightforward for the enlightened person or consumer who knows what and where to look. However, for the average consumers, this may be quite tricky. You wouldn't want to end up buying illegal CBD products, or products whose chemical composition doesn't satisfy the purpose of the purchase, hence there is a need to know how to pick the best CBD. To pick the best CBD like Dope CBD, made with the highest quality, these are the things you should do: Check the percentage of THC content in the CBD product. One of the things that determine if CBD products will not give you a psychoactive effect is the quantity of THC, Tetrahydrocannabinol, present in it. According to scientific research, 0.3 percent of THC or lesser is the standard a CBD product should have, otherwise, the consumer gets high after an intake.  Typically, CBD products can be made from either hemp or marijuana, both of which are cannabis plants containing CBD. However, unlike hemp, marijuana usually contains THC of up to 40%, which makes it not ideal for producing CBD products. Though many CBD producers would claim their products have 0.3 percent or lesser THC content, it is still better to check before buying the CBD product.  Also, if you're buying to take outside the United States, such as western Europe, where some of the countries only allow for a maximum of 0.2 percent THC content in the CBD products, then you need to consider the THC percentage very well before making a purchase. Assess if the CBD product is legal in your state or country In the United States, for example, Dope CBD made from hemp or having 0.3 percent or less THC content is considered legal at the federal level. However, when it comes to different states in the country, each state has different rules and regulations guiding the use and possession of CBD products.  The recent statistics have shown that 36 states and DC have legally approved the medical use of marijuana extract. At the same time, the other 14 states have all approved the laws authorizing the use of cannabidiol (CBD) extract, to make CBD products, with a THC content that is not above the federal government-approved level. With that being said, all Dope CBD Products are federally legal in the United States. Similarly, the European countries, such as the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Cyprus, Greece, Slovenia, Bulgaria, and Hungary, all having strict restrictions of 0.2 percent of THC or less content acceptance on the legality of the CBD usage and possession. Hence, it is recommended that you as a consumer should assess if the CBD product is legal in your state or country or not at all. For example, due to the Netherland tolerance policy, the country is frowned or criminalized the use of CBD in the country. Know what CBD products are produced for Different CBD producers manufacture various forms of CBD products such as CBD gummies, CBD oil, CBD cream, CBD balm amongst others.  Hence, to pick the best CBD for yourself, you need to know if the CBD will work for the purpose you're buying it for. Knowing the purpose of the CBD product will help in determining if the CBD products are right for you or not. To know exactly if you are on the right track, you can quickly check the label of the product you are buying to be sure. Beware of the health claims. Though there are various claims by many producers of CBD that their products can cure certain ailments, it is best if one can evaluate if truly their claims are true or false before buying such a product. To be sure you're not buying a CBD product with false claims of potency, you can seek other consumers' reviews about the products. Going online or asking people around you who have consumed such CBD products is a sure-fire way to find out if their claims are genuinely true.  The government of many states also approved the use of CBD for medical research only and the production of CBD under their strict guidelines and regulations.  Hence, it is recommended to beware of any bold claims from CBD product manufacturers, whose production is not approved by the state government or federal governments to serve as a cure to particular health-related ailments in humans. Another alternative is to check for the recent third-party lab results to know if truly the CBD products under analysis serve as a remedy for the health-related issues listed on the labels or casing of the products. Dope offers lab results in the description of every product for ultimate peace of mind. Availability of recent third-party lab results These independent lab tests assist to give the consumers a form of assurance that the products they are buying meet the required standard. In many cases, the independent laboratory posts the test results of the CBD products online for consumers to check if truly such CBD products have adequate potency. Here, consumers can visit the website to check for themselves. 3rd party labs performed these tests to ascertain that CBD products such as Dope CBD proved to be everything it claims to be, including a chemical, composition of a high degree of CBD, low level of THC, usually a maximum. of 0.3 percent, with no form of added impurities that can be detrimental to consumers. Source of CBD extracts. CBD extracts are manufactured from the cannabis plant which can either be marijuana or hemp Typically, CBD extracts from hemp can only have a maximum of 0.3 percent of THC; a psychoactive compound, but with a quantity (0.3 percent or less) that is not capable of giving consumers psychoactive effects or high feelings. On the other hand, marijuana has THC contents that are up to 40%. This THC quantity is capable of giving consumers a psychoactive feeling; hence, it is advisable to stay away from it.  For CBD consumers, it should also be noted that CBD products made from marijuana extracts will naturally have more than 0.3% THC thereby making it illegal to use or possess.  Therefore, to avoid the legal battles in possessing a CBD that is not approved by the government or the CBD products that are potentially harmful to your health, it is always advisable to check the source of the CBD extracts used in making the CBD products. Dope CBD continues to check the boxes for legal, and safe CBD. Method of production There are different ways in which CBD, or Cannabidiol can be extracted from the cannabis plants. The process by which CBD is extracted determines the quantity of CBD that can be gotten and the level of CBD purity that can be derived. The higher the quantity of cannabinoids, the better, and the higher the level of purity of the CBD extracts the better. In a typical situation, CBD extracts from a CO2 solvent method assist in dissolving the CBD molecules without adding any form of impurities or chemicals that may be harmful to consumers. This is Dope’s preferred way. Some methods of CBD extractions may not take out well-concentrated quantities of cannabinoids that may be very effective or potent enough. Some extractions methods may need added chemicals. Hence, it is necessary to be sure if the method of getting the CBD is free of any impurities and delivers a concentrated quantity of CBD extracts that is capable of giving sufficient potency in the final CBD products. CBD Formula Generally, CBD products are made from three different CBD formulas, such as CBD isolates, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum goods, each of them having different properties.  For example, CBD Isolate is a form of CBD that is crystallized in nature, with a remarkable 99 percent purity. This CBD has no form of additional components. On the other hand, Broad-Spectrum CBD has a huge quantity of cannabinoids and nutrients without the THC compound. While Full-Spectrum CBD has a significant number of cannabinoids, aromatic terpenes, including a small percentage of THC. Dosage and Concentration CBD products are made by different manufacturers, and they come in various shapes and sizes. As a result, you may not be able to find the same level of CBD concentration in different CBD products. If you're just starting as a CBD consumer, it is advisable to begin with small doses then observe the effectiveness and your body reaction.  Check the Hemp growing standards There are some cases where hemp is cultivated with the help of chemicals such as high concentrated pesticides. The act of using pesticides to treat hemp plants can have effects on the chemical composition of CBD extracts. For example,  pesticides can cause negative effects on the chemical makeup of hemp plants, as it destroys some of the chemical nutrients in the hemp plants.  Again, the pesticides sprayed on the plant floor can seep through into the soil, whereby the hemp plants in, in turn, absorb this pesticide which is capable of negatively affecting the chemical structure of the hemp plant. This eventually affects the concentration level of CBD extracts in the plants.  You can also check for where the hemp plants for CBD extraction are harvested. Usually, hemp plants derived from the United States often follow the FDA guidelines and standards. This standard helps to derive CBD extracts that satisfy the federal government laws and regulations on the legality of CBD uses and possession. Check for the presence of unnatural substances The best CBD products are the products made without any form of impurities or chemical additives. Hence, when buying your CBD product, it is advisable to always check if there are any additional unnatural substances in the composition of the CBD product which can be found in the lab test. There are cases of some producers adding unnatural substances like gluten or other potential allergens to their CBD products during processing. This may cause some level of irritation in the body. Though, some producers may add flavor to their CBD product, ensure these flavor ingredients are fully natural.  A simple look at the CBD product label will show you the ingredients used in making the products, and this will include any unnatural substance that may be present in it.  Note that the presence of additives in CBD products doesn't enhance their potency. It adds nothing to it.

Cheap CBD = Low Quality CBD

Nobody wants to buy expensive products. We all look for value for money. When buying your CBD products, it is not uncommon to look for cheaper prices or the most affordable. However, you should not trade quality for a cheaper price. Buying cheaply might lead you to buy some CBD products that don't have the expected potency or effectiveness. Also, most cheaper CBD product is illegally made. This is because they may not pass through the laid down rules and regulations set out by the federal governments and agencies. Hence, before you shell out your money, ensure, you're not just buying cheaper products, but the one that is effective, free from impurities, legal, has support services, and gives value for money to the consumers.
