Where can I get CBD oil? Is a trickier question than you might think!
Where can I get CBD oil? It’s a question a lot of people are asking right now, and “Be very careful about this” is the message we would like to convey. So why should you be so careful? After all, typing this question into your browser will give you upwards of 13,000 results in a split second. Can’t you just pick one and go for it? How about browsing prices to get the cheapest product? Surely CBD oil is just CBD oil?
It’s very important to know that a LOT of the oils currently being marketed as ‘CBD oil’ aren’t CBD oil at all. When the FDA tested a variety of US made ‘CBD oils’, they found very low percentages – under 3% of CBD in most oils. The strongest CBD was intended for animal use and totaled 3% CBD. Some products had absolutely no CBD in them at all.

How does this happen?
As consumers, we’ve been led to believe that everything we read on an ingredients label will be 100% correct. In general, that’s true. And the reason for that is that regulatory authorities will have something to say if false information is found on product labels.
But here’s the issue with CBD oil in the US: this industry is completely unregulated. How does it slip under the radar? The same way all black market products pass muster. You just have to hope for the best. The problem with that is that you honestly don’t know what you’re getting when you buy CBD oil, and that’s a problem for you.
How about choosing the cheapest option?
Most consumers know that cheaper isn’t always better. And in the light of the uncertainties regarding CBD percentage, we can see that you get more of what you’re actually paying for if you can get a CBD oil that is actually certified to contain a high percentage of CBD. If you get more CBD for your money, and can be sure that information is true and correct, the product is actually cheaper overall. It’s simple logic.
The other question to ask yourself when seeking the answer to the “Where can I get CBD oil” question is just how and where the product was made. Would you buy backyard made pharmaceuticals?
Obviously not. The quality of the pharmaceuticals would be variable, and there’d be the concern of contamination owing to lack of attention to good laboratory practice. Why, then, buy CBD from a backyard producer? Unfortunately a lot of the products online have flashy websites with nothing to back them up.
You can’t get good CBD oil just anywhere
Contamination, toxicity from pesticides or solvent used for extraction and outright scams abound in the CBD oil market. Here’s what you need to know before deciding where to buy CBD oil:
How were the plants grown? Was it an organic, toxin-free crop?
How were the plants harvested? Did they develop fungi at any time before or after harvest?
How the extract was produced, and are there any possible residues from extraction?
Is there any verifiable, third-party certification for the CBD oil?
Is it made in a proper laboratory under hygienic conditions?
How much CBD is REALLY in the oil, and who says so?
Will you actually receive anything at all after making your online purchase?
