As CBD products are going global, quality is very important. Placing potentially hazardous products on/on the body may be ineffective or even harmful. Defining which CBD products are safe, effective, and of high quality is a huge challenge for all consumers.
What quality parameters should you pay attention to?
1. Whole Plant Extract VS. secluded
There are three main types of CBD tincture: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate. CBD products can be made from isolate CBD, so make sure the product label or product web page includes additional information about the extract content. Terms like “full spectrum” or “whole plant” mean that the product contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids and other hemp compounds. Many studies have confirmed that CBD products containing a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are more effective than isolated CBD.
2. Best Extraction
The most popular and safest 10000 mg CBD oil extraction is supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction. CO2 provides a clean, precise extraction that greatly reduces the potential for contamination from other methods such as ethanol, hydrocarbons, and other solvent extractions.
3. Check CBD Potency and Possibility of Contamination
CBD concentration is often different from the value indicated on the label, so it is recommended to check the CBD concentration on the Certificate of Analysis (COA). Due to the potential for product contamination at any point along the hemp chain during the growing, manufacturing, and packaging processes, additional analyzes such as residual solvents, heavy metals, pesticides, and microbial pathogens are recommended to be considered.
