At CFH, we feel it is important to do your research and ask your CBD source these important questions:
Is your product from a single farm?
The majority of hemp currently produced is industrially grown, mechanically harvested whole plant hemp material that can often include cuttings of seed, stalk, leaves and even weeds. The trichomes of the flower are the part of the hemp plant that includes all of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes that result in increased efficacy. Full Spectrum Hemp Flower Oil is harvested from flower only.
Are they using flower only or stalks, stems, leaves, seed or "aerial" parts?
Product from a single source provides consistency & reliability.
When you are shopping for a CBD product, you will have three basic options: CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD and broad spectrum CBD. Understanding what each of these terms means is critical to purchasing the product that you want.
Second, the COA will show you the cannabinoid profile of the product if you are purchasing full or broad spectrum CBD. This list will include other cannabinoids that are in the product, such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabinol (CBN).
Step Two: Isolates, Full Spectrum, and Broad Spectrum
As noted above, the FDA does not regulate CBD in the United States. This can make it incredibly difficult to know what you are getting. One way to ensure that you are buying a safe, high quality product is by only purchasing CBD that has been independently tested.
Step Five: Independent Testing
Unlike food, however, CBD isn’t regulated by the FDA. If you’re like the millions of Americans who are interested in CBD for its health and wellness benefits, you may be overwhelmed by trying to figure out what to buy. There isn’t a standard label for CBD products, so as you shop, you might find yourself scratching your head, wondering what exactly an aerial plant part is, or what the total CBD amount is per serving.
