What you need to look for when buying over the counter CBD products:
Like buying any medications over the counter, there are certain aspects that you must look for to insure it is safe. Some companies say they have the best over the counter CBD products, but how can you tell? We are going to provide you with 6 simple steps to take when searching for a safe over the counter CBD product!
1. Is it certified?
This is an important one!! The product being certified means that it meets safety and quality guidelines as well as proves it is laboratory tested. A certification can be found online or on the package of the product.
2. What is the concentration?
The concentration of CBD is vital in providing the correct dose to reap the benefits of the CBD component. The item you are buying should clearly list the amount of CBD in it; either in mg/mL or mg per serving
3. How much CBD & THC?
CBD is a non-psychoactive substance and can exist in ALL CBD merchandise. THC, however, IS a psychoactive ingredient and can ONLY exist at 0.3% in products.
4. How was it made?
There are numerous ways CBD can be extracted from the cannabis plant. We are going to list three ways that are SAFE: CO2 extraction, ethanol extraction, or hydrocarbon extraction. You can find how it was made easily by looking online or on the bottle!
5. What’s the source?
You must know where the cannabis the CBD was extracted from originated. This is due to the possible contamination that can occur in the soil the plant is growing in. Certain countries may not have strict protocols for cannabis farmers to insure there are no toxins in the soil.
6. Any other ingredients?
Check the labels to see what carrier oils, sweeteners, or other flavor additives the products have in them. The company must use high-quality carrier oils like olive and coconut.
Capsule dosage facts:
How much CBD should I take a day?
It truly depends upon two factors: your body weight and the condition you are treating. If you are taking CBD capsules based on your body weight, you will need to do some calculations.
1. If you want a low strength dosage, you should take 1mg of CBD per 10 pounds.
2. If you are looking for a medium strength dosage, you should take 3mg of CBD per 10 pounds.
3. If you need a high strength dosage, you should take 6mg of CBD per 10 pounds. If you do not wish to take CBD capsules based on your weight, there is another option you have!
You can start your CBD journey with a low dosage and increase the dosage every week by 10mg until you start to feel results. For example, you start taking 35mg of CBD a day for a week and then the next week you increase the amount to 45mg and so on. You should only increase the amount if the dosage you are taking that week still is not providing enough relief.
