Mistakes to Avoid When Purchasing CBD Products

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be more than happy to address any concerns you may have. 

Prioritizing Cost Over Quality

It can be difficult to make purchases sometimes, which leads many people to try to save money where they can. However, it’s important that you don’t just look for the cheapest option when it comes to CBD products. The fact is, that low cost will always be tied to low quality. If you go with the cheapest product, you are more likely to end up with a subpar CBD product, possibly one produced dangerously and one which won’t give you the benefits you’re looking for. As CBD distillate becomes a more popular treatment option, unscrupulous companies will try to cash in on people looking to give it a chance. The old adage holds true; you get what you pay for.


Making Assumptions About Psychoactivity

While CBD oil from hemp does not contain enough THC to get you high, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be checking the THC levels of the product you’re purchasing. Not only might you end up buying CBD distillate sourced from marijuana, but the THC levels might also far exceed the number which would cause you to have a psychoactive reaction. Always look at the details of the product, as CBD from hemp should have THC levels of less than 0.03%. CBD distillate which has been extracted incorrectly will have a higher THC level, so this isn’t something to overlook.


Having Unrealistic Expectations

With so much research being done to unlock the treatment potential of CBD, you might see many scientific studies published professing great claims about the healing power of CBD. While CBD has been shown to help many people, everyone has different chemistry within their body. As such, what works for one person may not work for another. This makes it vital for you to temper your expectations prior to beginning CBD treatment. If you see a CBD product that is making bold proclamations about its ability to cure any number of diseases, you should be wary. Any claims to be a “cure-all” should be perceived much like snake oil because they’re building your expectations up higher than anything could reach.


Not Doing Research

As with any health supplement you find on the market, you should do your due diligence. Research everything you can about the company that produces the CBD product, understand their process for growing and cultivating their hemp, and get a grasp over what their intentions are regarding entering the industry. If at any point you find roadblocks preventing you from learning about their process, company, or product, you need to look elsewhere. If they’re trying to hide something, it’s not something you want to put in your body.


Ignoring Legality

The laws regarding CBD usage can be a little bit confusing, so it’s important to check on the requirements for your area. While federal law allows the use of CBD distillate sourced from hemp nationwide, there may be local laws that can make that more complicated. For instance, it may require a prescription, a diagnosis of a specific ailment (such as epilepsy), or some other sort of requirement. This should be a part of your researching process because while CBD distillate has helped many people, it would be a shame for you to run into legal trouble before you can try it. A little extra sleuthing will do you a world of good.


The world of CBD distillate treatment can be pretty overwhelming to someone looking at it for the first time. With so much information coming about it every day, it can be difficult to parse through it all and find the truth. With these mistakes, we hope you understand how to navigate this world a bit better so you can find the CBD oil that is right for you. Would you like to learn more?
