Finding the Best CBD Oil: What You Need to Know
CBD Oil, a product that contains cannabidiol, has grown in immense popularity in the cannabidiol market, which is expected to reach $20 billion by 2024.
It’s no wonder so many companies sprouting up in the industry, but when there’s still little regulation by the FDA, how do you know what CBD oil is the best?
What to Look For
There are several things to look for in CBD oil to see if it’s at the highest standards. The top three things to consider when choosing CBD oil products are:
- What it contains
- If it has been tested (and the results)
- How it was extracted
* Customer reviews help too.
We’ll look into how each of these parts plays a role in creating the best CBD oil. And yes, we're a little biased here at Straight Hemp because we take pride in our craft. :-)
CBD Oil Ingredients and Testing
Unfortunately, an important area that is not heavily enforced in the CBD industry is testing. While some companies may claim their THC levels are at 0.3% or less in accordance with federal limits, not all test their product to prove it. And if you’re not careful, the product could contain harmful chemicals like pesticides and heavy metals. If you’re unsure about a CBD product you’re considering, check if the company has received a warning letter from the FDA (you can do that here).
Because we test all of our products by batch, you know exactly what’s in the product batch for that CBD oil. We use organic ingredients wherever possible and keep the growth process as natural as possible so that our product is free of unwanted chemicals.
What's The Best CBD Oil Extraction Method?
There are multiple extraction methods out there, but the two most common for CBD oil are the subcritical CO2, and the supercritical CO2 extraction methods. The subcritical CO2 extraction method produces the best CBD oil by maintaining more of the natural cannabinoids and terpenes, which is why we use it. Learn more: How We Extract CBD & What is CBD Oil.
