Shopping for CBD Oil: What to Look for When Buying CBD Oil - Leaf Remedys

Have you been struggling with aches and pains? Are you having a hard time falling asleep at night? Do you feel anxious in certain settings?


If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’ve come to the right place.


By now, you’ve likely heard about the therapeutic effects of CBD oil.


But maybe you’ve been on the fence when it comes to purchasing it, because you’re not really sure what you’re looking for.


We’re here to help.


Buyer beware


Since 2018, the Farm Bill gave the hemp industry an incredible boost by legalizing its cultivation, transportation, manufacturing, and sales.


That’s why you’ve likely seen CBD stores pop up on every corner.


But there’s just one issue…


That same bill placed the hemp industry into the hands of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


While that might seem like a good thing, the truth is the FDA has yet to place any regulations regarding the quality and safety of CBD products.


For this reason, the hemp industry has become increasingly saturated with companies that are only out to turn a profit.


Unfortunately, these companies like to cut corners because it’s cheaper and they assume people won’t catch on.


Thankfully, there are several ways you can identify these shady companies:


  1. Their products are poorly formulated–– making them ineffective and hard for the body to absorb.


  1. Their products are inaccurately labeled –– containing little to no CBD in the bottle. And in some cases, they contain more CBD or THC than what's listed on the label.


  1. Their products are not third-party tested –– they often contain harmful toxins that are unsafe for people and pets to consume.


  1. They advertise their CBD products as a “cure-all” –– If you stumble across a CBD company that makes medical claims on their websites, it’s best to stay far away.



What is the best CBD oil on the market?


Thankfully, there are a few CBD companies that have chosen to self-regulate and be 100% transparent with how they formulate and produce their CBD products.


Here’s what to look for:


  • The CBD is sourced from organic hemp
  • The CBD is safely extracted using clean extraction methods (CO2 extraction)
  • The CBD products are thoroughly tested by an accredited third party for label accuracy
  • The CBD company offers knowledgeable customer service


Not only will reputable CBD companies provide you with high-quality products formulated with organic hemp-derived CBD and other ingredients, but the efficacy of their products are supported through testimonials and reviews instead of countless medical claims.


The more honest and transparent the company is, the more trustworthy they are. And the more knowledge you have in knowing what to look for in a CBD product, the more equipped you are in finding the best CBD product that fits your needs.


Here at Leaf Remedy, we not only create high-quality, third-party tested CBD products, we also make it our mission to educate our customers on what they’re putting in their bodies.
