Hemp CBD products have become some of the most popular products when it comes to cannabis. However, with the large amount of products out on the market, it’s important that you sort through the noise and make sure that you’re getting the best product that you can. From tinctures, topicals, edibles, and concentrates, make sure that you’re spending your money wisely and not getting conned into buying a less than great product. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing some ways to help you make sure that you’re buying the best quality of hemp CBD products. Keep reading to learn more! 


What Does Hemp CBD Do? 

People who have used hemp CBD products have reported better sleep, reduced anxiety, reduced inflammation, and reduced pain. While this has been helpful to some, it’s important that you keep in mind that there have been no scientific results that can prove that hemp CBD can cure these issues. So, just because it has helped some people, you should not expect it to be a cure. Remember to consult your doctor before using any new products, especially if they’re being used as a way to help combat other issues. 


One of the main differences in hemp CBD products is that these products have been designed to give wellness benefits, not for you to experience a high. While there are so many cannabinoids that are found in all types of cannabis plants, CBD and THC are the two biggest and most popular cannabinoids. THC is the one that gets you high and is typically not found in these products that we are discussing today. So, if you’re looking for a product that will give you that desired high effect, we suggest you look elsewhere. But, if you are looking for wellness products, then you’re in the right place! 


Hemp CBD products are likely coming from industrial hemp, which is the tall, rapidly growing plant that resembles something like bamboo. While industrial hemp is known for its stalks and seeds that can be made into almost anything and is great as a plastic substitute, it can also be used to make products that are mixed with CBD. Your hemp CBD product can come from either industrial hemp or the cannabis plant,as long as it is below .3% of THC in the product.  This is what truly matters. 


Hemp has become a steady powerhouse due to its multifunction and sustainability, and while there are a few gray areas, it’s available in all 50 states in the US and can be purchased online, making it widely accessible. 


How To Choose The Best Product

Search “Full Spectrum”

When you’re looking for a hemp CBD product, opting for “full spectrum” hemp-derived oil is the best way to receive the “entourage effect”, which is the proposed mechanism where cannabis compounds act synergistically to modulate the overall effects. When purchasing full spectrum, you’re getting the pure product, which means that you’re getting the other potential benefits that the whole plant and cannabinoids offer you. 


Find Out Where The Hemp Is Grown

Just like you find out where your food is grown, finding out where your hemp is grown should be no different. Opting for hemp that is grown locally or in the US allows for the plant to abide by FDA rules and if you’re wanting something organic, they will have proof that it is organic. 


Review Your Product 

If a person doesn’t like a product, they will most likely let you know by either word of mouth or online reviews. Before buying a product, do your research and see which products people are liking and what products to avoid. Many products will claim that they have all of these great things to offer you, but let the customers speak for themselves and see what the product really brings. 


Check The Ingredients

It’s important to understand what is in your hemp CBD product. After all, you’re putting it inside your body, so educate yourself on the ingredients that are in your products. Many hemp CBD products have flavors or sweeteners such as cold-pressed orange, grape seed, coconut oils, and stevia. Opting for more organic and natural products is always beneficial. In fact, some even suggest that you stay away from junk ingredients like artificial flavorings and corn syrup.


Remember to appropriately dose yourself when using these products no matter if you’re an experienced veteran or if it’s your first time. If you’re buying online, check the dosage reports on the label of your product. If you’re buying in-store, make sure that you pay attention to the budtenders recommendations. A good rule of thumb is to try two to three milligrams daily to begin with, and you can always add more. Hemp CBD tinctures are also a great way to get started since they’re portable, discreet, and easy to use.
