What to look for in CBD oils
When it comes to buying CBD products, the online marketplace can be an overwhelming place with many varieties of products, strengths and flavours. Choosing a product that best suits your own individual needs is vital. The beauty of CBD products is that they are easily adapted into almost any kind of lifestyle.
There are a few key points to consider when searching for the right CBD for you. Here we will break down for you some of the main elements of CBD products as well as clear up any confusion as to the CBD terminology.
Full spectrum CBD oil
These are CBD products that contain the whole spectrum of cannabinoids that are found within the cannabis plant. Although these may contain some THC, it is worth noting that the legal limit for THC content found within a CBD product in the UK and most of Europe is 0.2%. This is the amount deemed safe for consumption and low enough to not cause any psychoactive effects.
People often choose full spectrum CBD because it is more organically complete and provides the user with the entourage effect. The entourage effect is the name given to all of the cannabinoids working together synergistically to provide the user with maximum benefits and effects. Read more about the entourage effect.
The use of full spectrum products is not advised for those who must pass drug tests for sports, work and any other legal reasons. This is because trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid found within cannabis) can be detected on these tests, even though the products are not illegal or considered dangerous.
Broad spectrum CBD
CBD products that are defined as broad spectrum CBD contain a range of cannabinoids found within cannabis but they have a 0% THC content. This makes them a wonderful alternative for those seeking a more organically complete CBD product but without having to worry about the presence of THC.
Broad spectrum CBD is in no way inferior to any other CBD product, as it has been created to enable those of you that can't consume THC to still be able to enjoy the wholesome benefits of CBD and the other minor cannabinoids.
As its name suggests, isolate CBD products are ones that contain isolated CBD and no other cannabinoids. This is because individual cannabinoids can be extracted at different temperatures.
CBD isolate is the right choice for someone looking for a pure CBD product containing absolutely no other cannabinoids. Again, isolate CBD is not inferior to full or broad spectrum CBD oils, it simply serves a large audience and provides peace of mind when choosing to use a cannabis based product.
Strength and concentrate
This is perhaps the most challenging aspect of CBD oils to work out. With hundreds of unique products boasting all kinds of strengths and potencies, how do you understand what is the best CBD oil?
Most, if not all of CBD oils and other types of CBD consumables state a percentage of purity of the CBD found within and also a:
- mg per ml
- mg per gm
- or mg per item
This depends on if you buy a liquid or solid state product.
A common starter dose of CBD is between 20-40mg of CBD, high doses can be 100mg+. It is recommended to start with a low dosage and build up until you find the right dose for you. There is no correct time that you should take CBD and no limit as to how much you can take either. This means your CBD journey is entirely adaptable to your own lifestyle, wants and needs.
Other things to consider
There are some other factors that we will touch on briefly so that you will have a well-rounded understanding of what to look for when shopping for CBD.
- Lab tested products - These are CBD oils and products that have had an in-house or 3rd party lab test to certify the contents, purity and concentration of the CBD that you are buying. Before now there have been some bootleg products that have made their way into the online CBD market, luckily for you, here at ICE Headshop, we stock only the highest quality CBD products available and keep up to date with the latest industry standards as well as stocking the latest and most innovative products of the CBD world.
- Organic - This comes down to lifestyle choice, if you prefer to eat, drink or live organically then there are plenty of options for you. If you simply like to have the option then these are available for you too. Many people are looking toward a more wholesome and organic lifestyle and for good reason. Enjoy your CBD oil of choice with a clear conscience.
- Flavour - Another personal factor but fear not, you will not be left disappointed. CBD oils and products come in a huge range of flavours and styles to suit every tastebud. Some CBD without flavour added have an earthy and grassy taste, enjoyed by many but not by some. Lots of CBD oil is also tasteless or very tasty, the choice is yours!
- Brand - When shopping for CBD, it is worth looking at the brands of the products you like the look of. Brands in the CBD industry with good renown are often transparent with their sourcing, methods and ingredients. Like any other food, drink or material object we buy, we discover our favourites. Again another personal preference but that is part of the shopping experience right?
