How to choose the right CBD oil?
Select a reputable company
We prefer Swiss companies because they are authentic and deliver quality local hemp products. Pay attention to the extraction process the company is using and make sure to consider the reviews and ratings from other customers of the company.
Consulting previous customers is a practice used for sharing experiences for the performance of the company and the quality of their products. Make sure that you do not make a compromise on quality when you buy CBD oil.
Prefer plant-based CBD instead of crystals
A common mistake that most of the customers make, is that they buy the crystal-based CBD oil instead of the plant-based oil.
You should prefer plant-based oil for the following reasons:
1. The crystals could have been stored for a long period of time and if that is the case, then their potency is reduced. However, extracts from plants are fresh and highly potent.
2. Crystals often contain preservatives, which lesser the positive effect of the product, while the extracts from plants are the purest, which means all benefits are present.
During the selection of the product make sure that you ask the manufacturers whether the CBD is plant-based, or crystal based.
Hemp plants should be grown 100% organically
The nutritional value and the concentration of CBD are both higher in organic plants as compared to those hemp strains that have been cultivated with the help of fertilizers.
You should know that the content of fertilizers and pesticides is high in some hemp plants. The removal of those chemicals cannot be achieved by simply washing the plants. Which means that the chemicals could be transferred to the CBD oil during the extraction process and then do harm to your body.
Make sure that you know what production method is used by the company.
Some of the best methods include:
1. CO2 extraction
2. Ethanol extraction
3. Olive oil extraction
4. Hydrocarbon extraction
Companies that use CO2 extraction have the finest quality products. Ethanol and Olive oil extraction is reliable as well, but it will not generate the same positive effects.
Try avoiding products from companies that use hydrocarbon extraction.
Make sure that you select a company that uses special testing techniques. You can inform yourself about this by viewing published test results, or by simply reading the description on the bottle
