  • Buy CBD: What you should pay attention

    Buy CBD
    Are you looking to buy CBD for the first time? Or had a bad experience on a previous purchase and want to avoid further disappointments? Then you are exactly right here. Not all CBD products are created equal, and it is not always easy to distinguish good products from poor quality products. We explain what to look out for.

    Tip 1: get to know CBD products

    There are now countless CBD products. Are you looking for CBD oil, CBD flowers, CBD cosmetics, CBD foods or CBD crystals? Find out about the various options and the advantages and disadvantages they offer. The most popular way to consume CBD is probably CBD oils. They offer a simple dosage of highly concentrated CBD and work particularly quickly in the body.

    Tip 2: check the THC levels

    Before you buy a CBD product, you should check the CBD laws in your area of ​​residence. While CBD is legalized in many countries around the world, the exact legal situation can differ from country to country (and sometimes even state). Basically, CBD is legal in Germany if it contains a maximum of 0.2% THC. However, this does not necessarily apply to CBD flowers. In Berlin, for example, CBD flowers are not freely available for sale.

    Tip 3: look at the ingredients

    This is actually a "no-brainer". The ingredients are the be-all and end-all and should always be carefully checked by you.

    • You want either pure CBD products or CBD products with additional ingredients that have their own potential benefits (such as melatonin or MCT oils).

    • You should avoid CBD products with potentially harmful ingredients such as propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, which is mainly found in some CBD vape oils. CBD foods, on the other hand, may contain artificial colors and flavors that, while not harmful, do not provide any benefit to your body.

    Tip 4: understand the CBD terminology

    Above all, you should know the difference between CBD isolate, full-spectrum CBD and broad-spectrum CBD:

    • CBD isolate contains up to 99% pure CBD extract. Other cannabinoids and compounds from the hemp plant do not contain CBD isolate.

    • Full spectrum CBD contains CBD and all other naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids from hemp.

    • Broad spectrum CBD contains CBD and all other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and fatty acids from hemp - except THC.

    Tip 5: understand your dosage

    Anyone who buys CBD should know about its dosage. Otherwise you will not know how much to take or how long the product will last. Especially with CBD oil, some math is necessary:

    • Most CBD oils have a 1-milliliter pipette. So if you buy a 30 ml bottle of CBD oil, you will get around 30 servings.

    • Most CBD oils indicate how many milligrams (mg) of CBD are in the bottle. For example, if it contains 300 mg, divide the total CBD content (300 mg) by the number of servings (30). This is how you get the CBD dose per drop (10 mg CBD per 1 ml drop).

    • For example, if you want to take 25 mg of CBD per day, in our example you need 2.5 servings of CBD oil per day. You would use up the CBD oil in 12 days (30 ml divided by 2.5 ml per day).

    Tip: If you need a higher daily dose of CBD, a product with a higher concentration of CBD may be a better choice. So you need fewer servings throughout the day.

    Tip 6: read lab reports

    With laboratory reports you can reliably assess the quality of the CBD products. Most reputable CBD manufacturers should be able to provide a valid lab report or certificate of analysis. When reading such a report, there are a few things to keep in mind:

    • The publication date of the report. The more recent the report, the more reliable and relevant it is.

    • Are the numbers correct? For example, if the product should contain 1200 mg of CBD, the number in the laboratory report or on the certificate should match it.

    • What about contamination? In the laboratory, the CBD is tested for heavy metal and microbacterial contamination. This information can usually be found at the end of the report.

    • Laboratory accreditation. A laboratory report is only valuable if it comes from a recognized laboratory.

    Tip 7: stay within your budget

    Sure, the price plays a role in every purchase. Did you find an interesting product? Then take a few minutes to compare it to other products. If there is a big difference in price here, find out why. Do you pay more for trendy packaging? Or maybe after a look at the ingredients and lab reports, is the bargain price really too good to be true?

    So time for a well thought-out product comparison and also check the reviews of the shops. That leads us to the next and last tip of our CBD purchase advice.

    Tip 8: check the reviews

    Checking reviews is a must. With just a quick Google search, you can find out whether a provider is reputable and what experiences other customers have had with the company and its products.

    • Does the CBD manufacturer use ethical growing and production practices?
    • Is there customer service and how well does it work?
    • Are the products tested in a laboratory?
    • Are artificial ingredients added?

    With information on these and similar questions, you can ensure that your money goes to a reputable and trustworthy company.
