Because there are such a vast amount different products, it can often be quite challenging to gauge the quality of CBD products. While there are, of course, a variety quality products out there, there are also many bad-quality products as well.
In order to avoid the poor-quality products and pick the perfect product for your needs, here’s five things to be aware of when looking to buy a CBD product.
Company Reputation & Product Ratings: Before you decide to purchase any CBD product, it is crucial to do a bit of due dilligence. Do a quick Google search of both the brand and the product and verify that both have a solid reputation with previous shoppers. Look for any red flags that indicate that the product is untrustworthy.
Certificate of Analysis: Before buying a CBD product, it is strongly recommended to confirm that product was tested by a 3rd party lab testing facility. If the product was not tested, there’s no way to confirm if it is safe to consume. Furthermore, when reviewing a product’s lab test report, you always confirm that the MG of CBD labeled on the product is correct.
Type of CBD: Is it Isolate CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, or full spectrum CBD? Each type of CBD delivers unique pros and cons, and the type of CBD should align with your individual needs as well as your budget.
Product Ingredients: As when purchasing any consumable product, you should always review the ingredients found in any CBD product you are thinking about purchasing. In general, products with all-natural, organic ingredients are preferred. Furthermore, make sure the product does not contain ingredients that you may be allergic to or exhibit a sensitivity to.
American-Made: When it comes to CBD, it’s ideal to use products that are made in the United States with CBD which was extracted from domestically grown cannabis plants. While hemp can be sourced from various places across the world, America has the ideal environment for growing hemp and American farmers generally adhere to superior cultivation standards.
Is CBD Legal in Utah?
To provide a quick answer to this question yes, CBD that was derived from hemp is legal in Utah.
In 2018, hemp and it’s derived products, which include CBD, was federally legalized under the 2018 Farm Bill.
While hemp-derived CBD is federally legal in the US, the individual laws and regulations that dictate specific-case uses will vary at the state level.
With that being said, you are highly advised to do your own research into the CBD laws in your state or region.
