As one of the oldest names in the CBD business, we at the CBD Brothers have learnt a lot about quality CBD oil over the years, so we feel well placed to offer some pointers for finding the best CBD oil available.
As with food and drink, we all want to know what we are putting into your body.
The fact that CBD is a growing market creates room for confusion, as well as opportunities for dishonest companies looking to make a quick buck without paying attention to quality or the health of their customers.
There are a few things to look out for that indicate that you are buying the best CBD oil possible, and a few red flags that suggest the opposite. We encourage you to read carefully in order to have the best possible experience with CBD oil.
There are a few key things you’ll want to avoid when looking for CBD oil, mainly details to do with how the cannabis plants are grown and the CBD oil is processed.
Some farms treat their cannabis crops with pesticides, fungicides, and artificial fertilisers in growing their plants. The cannabis plant is highly absorptive of nutrients and other substances the soil it grows in contains, so if it is treated with harsh chemicals, it’s very likely that the final product will be tainted.
The best CBD oil contains as few impurities as possible, so be sure to look for an oil that is farmed without these.
In processing, some companies use harsh gases such as butane and propane to extract CBD from the cannabis plants. These are all used to cut corners and costs in the processing stage but are potentially harmful to the consumer. These compounds are common in cheap but strong CBD products.
Choosing a long-standing supplier of CBD oil means you can feel assured that they adhere to the strict health standards imposed upon them by the Food Standards Agency in the UK, or the relevant regulatory body elsewhere in the world. A tried and trusted supplier is your best bet for high quality CBD oil.
The CBD Brothers have been working with and selling CBD since 2010 and have a vast base of happy customers, so we could argue quite strongly that our CBD oil may well be the best on the market.
We also to have sustainable and ethical practices in place, so you can feel good about your purchase.
Oils that make use of the whole cannabis plant also include the flavonoids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids that work alongside cannabidiol. In less technical terms, they supply the CBD in a natural form, allowing it to work best.
We would avoid purchasing CBD oil is if the product is not labelled with the percentage of CBD that it contains. Without knowing the strength of the CBD oil you are using, you may never find out exactly how much CBD you are treating yourself with. This could be shown as a percentage concentration, or how many milligrams of CBD is in the bottle or tincture.
The product could be much weaker or stronger than you were hoping for, and without knowing its strength it is effectively impossible to fine tune your dosage to meet your needs.
