Type of CBD: Does the product contain CBD isolate, Broad Spectrum, or Full Spectrum? Each type delivers unique pros and cons, and the type of CBD should align with your individual needs and budget.
Ingredients: As with purchasing any consumable product, you must always review the ingredients contained in any CBD product you are considering buying. In general, products with all-natural, organic ingredients are ideal. In addition, be sure the product does not have any ingredients that you are allergic to or sensitive to.
