Why the Types of CBD Oil You Choose Matter
There are lots of types of CBD oil out there, but they’re not all created equally. As with any substance that you consume—and particularly substances that impact the way you feel both physically and emotionally—you need to be sure that the CBD oil you purchase is high quality and free of problematic ingredients.
CBD is a rapidly growing industry. After amendments to the Farm Bill in 2018 officially legalized hemp-derived CBD in the states, tons of companies jumped on board creating their own varieties of CBD products, some more successfully than others.
To get the full therapeutic benefits of CBD (and equally important, to avoid any possible negative side effects), it’s crucial that you only stick to CBD oils and other products from companies that are committed to quality and safety.
At My Health Etc., we take our commitment to our customers’ health incredibly seriously. To that end, we only sell products from companies that meet our strict standards—and we turn away companies that don’t.
So what do those standards look like? Here are just some of the qualifications that we look at before we will stock a CBD oil or other type of CBD product:
Organically grown, sustainable farming practices
- Triple lab tested
- GMO free
- Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum
- THC Free Isolate
- Guaranteed % of CBD
- Produced and bottled under pharmaceutical control
- GMP manufacturing practices
- Independent lab testing with COA’s available
- Packaged in amber bottles
- CO2 Cold Extraction
- Food Grade
- No Chemical or industrial solvents
- Informative and cohesive labeling
Sometimes it’s good to be overly picky. By putting in the work on our end to only sell products that meet these standards, we ensure that the product you purchase is as safe and effective as possible.
Types of CBD Products
Once you know where to shop for CBD, your next step is to find the types of CBD products that you like. The type that’s right for you depends on what therapeutic benefit you’re looking for, what your lifestyle is, and how discreet you want to be.
Here are some of the products you’ll find when you shop at our store:
- Tinctures (flavored and non-flavored)
- Capsules and softgels
- Chocolate chews
- Body butter
- Cooling cream
- Organic vape oil
- THC-free products
- Pet supplements (including oils, treats, and salves)
This wide variety means that whether you’re looking for pain relief, immune system support, digestive or sleep products, or even pet products, you’ll find what you need at a quality you can trust.
Finding Reliable CBD Oil Local Stores
One of the best CBD oil tips we can give is to only purchase from CBD oil local stores and reputable online stores with a proven dedication to quality and consistency.
Unfortunately, a commitment to quality isn’t something you’ll find across the board. A 2017 study by Penn State found that nearly 70% of CBD oil extracts sold online are mislabeled, which is at best a waste of money for consumers and at worst a health hazard. And a 2019 report by NBC New York’s Sarah Wallace and Erica Jorgenson tested some popular CBD oils and gummies and found, among other things, amounts of CBD that were different than what was labeled, including some products that contained no CBD at all (and some that contained lead!).
We’re here to make it easy for our customers to find the best CBD oil to buy that contain what they say they contain and do what they say they do. When you visit our retail store, you get undivided attention and personal guidance toward choosing the best CBD product for your needs. From where the CBD in the product is grown to how you take it, we’ll answer all of your questions before you ever make a purchase.
In fact, some of the brands we carry are certified by the US Hemp Authority as high-quality, safe products. These include:
- Pet Releaf
- +CBD Oil
