Find the Best CBD Products By Understanding Labels and Lab Results

Find the Best CBD Products by Understanding Labels and Lab Results |

So, you’ve walked into a few (sometimes sketchy) CBD dispensaries or gas stations and browsed countless websites only to find that you’re more confused than ever about how to find legal, safe, and effective CBD. For the sake of your health (and wallet) you want to find the best CBD products, but you’re not sure how to go about it.

No worries! Here’s a brief tutorial on what to look for on product labels and how to get important information from product lab test results.

Full-Spectrum VS Broad-Spectrum CBD

Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum are popular forms of CBD but have one important difference. Full spectrum CBD includes all the compounds from cannabis, including varying amounts of THC. THC is the component that makes you high and shows up in drug testing. (See below for details.)

Broad Spectrum CBD also includes other cannabis compounds, but all (or virtually all) of the THC has been removed.

Full-spectrum CBD is legally allowed to contain THC, but only a very tiny amount. People who are concerned about drug testing and possible traces of THC might prefer broad spectrum CBD products – just to be on the safe side. Some drug tests are more sensitive than others.

Look for a THC Percentage

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the “psychoactive” compound in cannabis. It’s responsible for creating the “high” people experience when using marijuana. Legally, CBD products sold freely to the public cannot contain more than .3% of THC, which is far below the amount it takes to get high and usually not enough to show up in a drug test.

CBD Oil THC percentage |

As you can see from the label, our CBD Oil Tincture (and all our products) contains less than .3% THC.

The best CBD products will allow public access to third party lab test results that provide specific information (more on that later in this post).

Words to Look for on Your CBD Product Label

The correct language on a CBD product label is critical, because some manufacturers try to take advantage of consumers who aren’t aware of industry complexities. Good thing you’re reading this blog!

As a savvy consumer, you’ll want to see one of these phrases on a label:

  • Hemp extract
  • Hemp derived
  • Hemp oil extract
  • CBD oil

Otherwise, you could be getting a product made only from the hemp seeds, which contains no CBD at all!

What to Look for in CBD Product Lab Results

The best CBD products will make third-party lab test results accessible for your review. In the industry, these lab results are compiled as an official document known as a COA or Certificate of Analysis.

A COA contains a product-specific breakdown of all CBD compounds and THC. This is important, because you don’t want to purchase a product with more filler than CBD compounds – or too much THC!

Look for a Max CBD no lower than .9% and a Max THC no higher than .3%.

But keep in mind that THC levels rise with the amount of CBD in the product.

For example, compare our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, 250 mg (a.k.a. CBD oil or tincture) with our 1000 mg hemp extract:

250 mg CBD Oil

  • Max CBD = 0.92%
  • Max THC =.03%
250 mg CBD Oil |

1000 mg CBD Oil

  • Max CBD = 3.49%
  • Max THC = .11%
1000 mg CBD Oil |

The Max THC levels in both products are well below the legal CBD limit of .3%, and even the .3% THC isn’t enough to cause a “high”. However, it’s important to understand what you’re getting when you purchase a product.

Does Hemp Oil Contain CBD? What to Know Before You Buy

Does Hemp Oil Contain CBD |

Let’s face it, there’s an epic amount of sketchy – and totally false – information online about CBD and CBD products. But the team here at Pure Botanical Wellness is dedicated to sifting through the misconceptions and bringing you the facts about CBD, hemp oil extract, and other products. So, does hemp oil contain CBD?

The answer is both yes and no. Here’s why.

The term “hemp oil” is a generic term that refers to any oil that comes from the hemp plant. The two most common types of hemp oil are hemp seed oil and hemp oil extract – and they’re very different even though they have similar names.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is derived only from hemp seeds – which means it does not contain CBD .

CBD is found only in the stalks, stems, and flowers of cannabis plants, typically hemp plants where it exists more abundantly.

Since hemp seeds don’t contain CBD, then it’s apparent that hemp seed oil doesn’t either.

If you’re not specifically interested in CBD or pain relief but simply want a skincare oil high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega fatty acids, then hemp seed oil is a suitable product.

Hemp Oil Extract (CBD Oil)

In contrast, hemp oil extract is derived directly from parts of the hemp plant known to have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD), such as the stalks, stems, and flowers.

Does hemp oil extract contain CBD? Yes, it does!

Why would you buy hemp extract oil (a.k.a. CBD oil)?

If you’re seeking anti-inflammatory benefits, a pain reliever, or relief from other ailments, then you’ll want a product that contains CBD.

Carefully read the product label to be sure you’re getting hemp oil extract and not hemp seed oil, if you want therapeutic benefits.

Hemp Seed Oil VS CBD Oil

Are There Negative Effects of CBD?

In addition to asking the question, does hemp oil contain CBD, you might also want to know if it’s safe to use. Are there negative effects?

Most people tolerate CBD well and experience little to no side effects. But, in the interest of full disclosure, some people have reported dry mouth, reduced appetite, diarrhea, drowsiness, and fatigue.

However, if you’re taking other medications, specifically blood thinners, it’s best to ask your doctor about possible interactions. You should consult with your doctor before taking any new supplement, medication, or CBD product.
