According to Project CBD, it is imperative that you get to know your brand. There are numerous brands with poor quality control and misleading labels. Many claim to be full-spectrum, but are actually ineffective isolate:
“significant discrepancies among some of the leading hemp-derived CBD brands that falsely claim full-spectrum CBD-rich oil is in their products; lab tests of several samples revealed only one cannabinoid – CBD – was present, indicating that these products were made with a CBD isolate rather than a more efficacious whole plant CBD-rich extract.”
At NEK Hemp, every one of our products has QR code with third party tests that verify our full-spectrum oil with concentrations of CBD, as well as other cannabis compounds including CBG, CBC, CNB, and THC.
Here are the Project CBD tips to buy your CBD:
“Choose CBD products made with American-grown hemp rather than foreign sources. Consumer Reports suggests looking for companies in states that have legalized the recreational and medical use of cannabis “since they tend to have stricter standards.”
Choose “full spectrum” CBD-rich hemp extracts, not isolate, distillate or products labeled “pure CBD” or “no THC.” Full spectrum means it includes numerous cannabis compounds, including a small amount of THC (0.3% or less) in keeping with the legal definition of hemp.
Look for product labels that indicate the amount of CBD and THC per serving – not just the total cannabinoid content for the entire bottle.
Seek out CBD-rich products derived from high-resin cannabis grown sustainably in accordance with certified regenerative organic standards.
Think twice about brands that claim their CBD is derived from the seed and stalk of the hemp plant. CBD is not present in hempseed and barely any CBD is present on the stalk of the hemp plant.
Don’t be afraid to contact CBD hemp oil companies directly and ask questions. And if you cannot reach them directly, try another brand.”
