Common Concerns About CBD
Thanks for tuning into Xhale City's The 20 Days of 420. Where we discuss common concerns and questions consumers may have before trying CBD.
"CBD has many benefits, varieties, strengths and extractions methods. However, what are some of the top concerns about CBD?
One of the most common questions revolves around cost. Part of what makes CBD pricing so perplexing is that it’s an emerging industry, so the standards are just being established. The potency, extraction method, third party testing and the hemp source are all factors that can determine the cost of CBD products.
The more potent a CBD oil is, the more effective it may be. Looking at the cost per milligram can be a useful tool when deciding on the effectiveness vs cost-effectiveness.
Sometimes, for a higher strength CBD oil, a manufacturer may charge a lower cost per milligram. If you require a lower dose, buying a higher strength oil can be a strategic way to save on cost per mg. Just make sure you reduce the amount you consume accordingly.
Oftentimes consumers may be worried that CBD will show up positive on a drug test, considering CBD comes from cannabis. Most drug screens are not designed to detect CBD. Rather, most employers use either a 5-panel or 10-panel drug screen, both of which test for THC.
While CBD products aren’t supposed to contain more than 0.3% THC, Small amounts of THC from CBD products can also build up over time in your body. This is similar to the consumption of poppy seeds, which may lead to a positive drug test for opioids when ingesting too much.
However, some products go through processes to completely eliminate all THC from the CBD product. Some products with 0% THC include Broad Spectrum and Isolated CBD.
CBD is widely available and carries many benefits, but is it safe?
One of the best methods of evaluating the quality of a CBD product is the Certificate of Analysis (COA) These are lab reports that provide the amount of different cannabinoids in the product, extraction methods used and information about the third-party lab that tested the product.
While FDA is currently working on industry standards for CBD, these regulations have yet to be enacted into law. However, many reputable CBD brands will have lab reports available on their website.
As a consumer, it’s important to do your research on CBD companies to make sure you're getting good quality CBD.
