What to consider when choosing a CBD product

Have you ever heard that boiling vegatables (high-heat) can cause a loss of a large portion of the nutrients in those products? Water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and vitamin B and a group of nutrients called polyphenolics seem to be the most vulnerable to degradation in processing and cooking. The same is true when extracting CBD from hemp plants. The high-heat processes in distillation and isolates can cause a loss of many components which come together synergistically in the entourage effect. The way the processing is done makes a major difference in the end result.

A list of factors to consider when choosing a CBD product:

Is the cannabis crop grown in the USA or is it from a foreign source with little oversight?
Are organic farming techniques practiced? Is the farm herbicide and pesticide free?
Is the cannabis source medicinal hemp (bushes with flowers and leaves) or industrial hemp (tall stalks)?
Does the oil tincture have a pleasant taste? Is there more than one flavor?
Has ALL of the THC been removed and thus it is no longer psychoactive, or just to the .3% legal level?
Can you pass a drug test when using the products?
Is the CBD obtained from a broad-spectrum plant naturally phytocannabinoid rich in CBD? ...and,
Are the "entourage" components like CBG, CBN, CBC included in the products?
Are the terpenes, flavonoids, anti-oxidants, and essential amino acids also included?
Is the manufacturing done with low heat and enclosed continual processing to avoid damaging the products?
Are the production batches continually tested and confirmed by independent 3rd party labs?
If you are buying on-line or by telephone, are the products shipped at no additional cost?
If the company is an on-line business, do they want your name and email before showing the product prices?
Have people had excellent results with the products?
