When it comes to making educated purchasing decisions, you always want to be aware of what you are putting into your body. Though it would be nice to be able to rely on companies to only provide helpful and safe products, that is not necessarily the case. Finding brands that you can count on is an important part of being a conscientious consumer, which is why we though that it might be helpful to breakdown a few key factors that you might see on a CBD product label. Understanding what you are looking at can help you to stay informed.
Total CBD Amount
The total CBD amount listed on a bottle will be the amount that exists within the bottle. Many people make the mistake of thinking that they are going to be getting individual CBD pieces with that amount. While most products would be giving out way more than you need if that were true, people can get confused when the number is lower. This might result in you overpaying for a cheap product.
This might look a little different depending on what kind of product you are using. An edible might have a breakdown of how much is in each gummy or candy while a tincture might break it down by a number of drops. These numbers will tell you how much is in each serving size, which you will need to know in order to dose correctly.
Rather than putting a total CBD amount on a product, some companies will leave you to do the math and hope that you won’t. Any time you get a product, especially edibles, make sure that you check how much is in each gummy and how many gummies there are. Some companies will offer a normal serving size, but sell you short when it comes to the actual amount of gummies present.
CBD vs. Full-Spectrum CBD
A common thing being added to CBD labels now is the distinguishing title between CBD vs. Full-Spectrum CBD. The difference here is that regular CBD should not include any base other than CBD. On the other hand, full-spectrum CBD will have a variety of cannabinoids within the product. Instead of just getting cannabidiol, you might be ingesting something else as well. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, you want to remain informed.
Labels are bad when it comes to people, but they can be pretty important when it comes to products. Always look for these crucial identifiers on any label so that you know what you are getting as well as if you are paying a fair amount. In addition to these, you should always check out ingredients to make sure that there aren’t any random things being added to your products.
