Millions have hailed CBD as the answer to their prayers. It’s been successfully used to help relieve everything from sleep to pain to depression and more.
And CBD has been reported to be an absolute godsend for some cancer patients. For many folks battling the Big C, a hemp extract has helped them overcome some of the worst side effects of their mainstream treatments.
Once a “forbidden” solution that people only dared to whisper about … and many were AFRAID to even try… CBD oil has finally become mainstream.
But some people have tried the extract only to be disappointed with their results. For some folks, the CBD barely worked. For others, the supplement didn’t provide any relief at all.
Talk about a letdown. But if that’s happened to you or someone you know, I have good news. New research shows the likely reason why.
The problem isn’t CBD. And it certainly isn’t you, either. It’s some sleazy players sneaking into the market with low-quality garbage.
But I’m here to help. Because I’ve got the inside scoop on what you need to know BEFORE you try CBD again. I’ll explain exactly how you can spot the GOOD STUFF that’ll be far more likely to work for what ails you.
Up to 1 in 3 CBD products could be bogus
A few years ago, the biggest problem with CBD was the stigma.
Because the extract was derived from hemp, people associated it with marijuana… even though the CBD (aka cannabidiol) itself is NOT psychoactive. And in some cases, archaic laws made it ridiculously illegal.
Today, most people know CBD isn’t a street drug. And it’s now finally legal in most of the country (of course, always check your local laws and regulations).
But the study finds people aren’t always getting what’s on the label. One in three patients taking medicinal cannabis products had NO detectable CBD levels in their urine afterward – including people using CBD-only treatments.
What’s more, many had detectable amounts of THC in their urine. And again, this included people who had been using what were supposed to be CBD-only items. In other words, products without the THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana).
But there are four steps you can take to help ensure you get what you’re paying for.
4 steps to choosing a QUALITY CBD
If you want to give CBD a try again (or for the first time), follow these four simple steps to get a quality product that delivers the benefits you’re looking for.
STEP ONE: The study finds the biggest problems are in vaping products. So stick to tinctures, capsules, and topical formulas. Your doc can even help you decide which one is best for you.
STEP TWO: Avoid random online sellers you don’t know, especially on Facebook. When buying online, try to find a manufacturer you already know.
STEP THREE: Find a legitimate company with a solid reputation and not a fly-by-night discounter. If you already have a relationship with a supplement maker you trust, check to see if they have a CBD product you can try.
STEP FOUR: Go online and look for the COA, or certificate of analysis from a third-party lab, for any CBD product you’re considering. If you don’t see it on the website, or the details aren’t included in their online presentation, email and ask for it.
Legit products lead to HAPPY customers
Consumer Reports recommends looking for tests validated by the Association of Official Agricultural Chemists (AOAC), the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP), or the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP). But any legitimate third-party lab is good.
Not every company does these tests. They’re not required in many places. But an available COA is a solid sign you’re dealing with someone selling a good quality CBD product.
These simple steps can all be done in minutes. And once you get your hands on the ‘good stuff,’ you’ll finally see what all the buzz is about.
One study found that 80 percent of the people who use CBD are happy with the results. Incredibly, 40 percent found it so effective that they were able to quit medication.
