Cannabinoids (CBD) oil makes one of the various compounds derived from the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it does not cause a high effect. Scientific studies have shown that cannabinoid oil is capable of treating and reducing the effects of ailments such as migraines, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, anxiety and depression, and cardiac problems, among other health complications. The realization of the medical uses for CBD oil has shifted its demand, which has subsequently led to increased production of CBD oil along with its imitations. Due to the different varieties available in the market, purchasing CBD oil can be confusing, and you may end up buying a fake product. Here are the factors you should consider to get the best CBD Oil in the market.

The weed source of the CBD Oil

Typically, CBD oil can be extracted from marijuana or hemp plant. Knowing where the CBD oil is extracted from is essential in assessing whether it contains THC or not. If you need CBD oil for medical purposes, you can go for the one derived from the hemp plant as it contains low THC concentrations hence less likely to give you psychoactive effects.

The reliability of the manufacturer

Ensure that you select only CBD Oil products from licensed manufacturers. A licensed firm will adhere to the rules set by the regulatory authorities and are more likely to produce quality products too. For transparency purposes, the firm should also allow for third-party tests before the packaging to assure its clients of the safety and purity of the CBD oil products. The manufacturer should also evaluate the credibility of the hemp plant growers and also offer good customer service.

You can get the above information about the manufacturer by reading online reviews on the cannabis brands websites or asking the past users of their product.

The type of CBD Oil

The type of CBD Oil you go for will depend on the purpose. For instance, you can go for CBD isolate if you don't need to experience the effects of other cannabinoids or otherwise go for a full spectrum.

CBD oil full spectrum is a mixture of pure CBD with other oils such as coconut oil. Full-spectrum CBD oil, on the other hand, contains various cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabichromene), and other compounds like flavonoids and terpenes).

You can go for full-spectrum CBD oil if you want to get hyper in addition to the benefits from other compounds.

CBD concentration

The concentration of the CBD in each package of the CBD Oil will determine the effectiveness of the product and the dosage you have to take. It is, therefore, imperative to check the label to see the concentration of CBD on each dose. Some manufacturers will label the total CBD concentration in the entire package, which can be confusing. A typical CBD concentration, however, ranges between 250 and 1000mg per ounce. Any other concentration below the range is misleading and won't give the satisfaction of CBD. You can, however, go for low concentrations such as 250g if you are a starter then increase with time as you determine the most optimal CBD concentration for your system since it works differently among individuals.

If the concentration level is not indicated on the package, you can calculate it by obtaining the quotient of the total volume of CBD used (in mg) and the volume of the container (in ounces).

For instance, 2000mg CBD/5 ounce bottle= 400mg/oz

Consider the Price

Sometimes the price of a substance can tell you of its quality. Cheap CBD oil in the market could be a good indicator of poor quality or else a counterfeit. You should, therefore, not compromise quality to save a few coins. Taking the wrong thing in your body won't give you the desired effect and may instead trigger other health issues, which may be costly. One way of arriving at the best price is by combining several factors discussed in this article to get the best product then bargain for a reduction in its price.

Method of extraction

If you are concerned about your safety, then you should know the extraction processes for the CBD oil product you are about to purchase. Typically, CBD Oil is extracted from the harvested plants using two main methods:

The supercritical carbon dioxide method

The extraction method is called supercritical because it involves the cooling of carbon dioxide and the application of extreme pressure to compress it to a liquid. It thus gives out a pale amber-colored extract is applied to a hemp plant. The CBD oil produced using this method results in a full spectrum of the hemp plants cannabidiol compound. It is considered as the most efficient and the safest process of deducing CBD though relatively expensive.

Ethanol oil and canola extraction

This method is more economical compared to the supercritical carbon dioxide method. It, however, has some drawbacks, such as dissolving the plant's coloring matter along with essential oils and the cannabinoids. This results in a green-colored extract of the CBD OIL. Though the green color can be filtered out, the ethanol oil and canola extraction method is not very effective. It may end up dissolving neurotoxic solvents like butane and hexane that may affect the functioning of the immune system.

Going for CBD oil extracted through the supercritical carbon dioxide method assures you of a high degree of purity, and a product free from harmful compounds and chlorophyll.

How the hemp plant has been brought up

If you are looking for CBD oil for commercial purposes, it is essential to research the area where the hemp plant was grown and how it has been brought up and harvested. This will help in ensuring that the grower adhered to the agricultural guidelines for a healthy hemp plant. For a quality hemp plant, the farmer should:

Plant the hemp in a well-drained loam soil with a PH level above 6.0 and below 7.5

Avoid clay soil since it has poor drainage and inhibits the fiber development

Ensure the land is fertile to maintain higher nitrogen level

Plant the hemp plant in areas where there is plenty of rainfall since it flourishes well in moisturized areas.

The main aim is to ensure that the plant is organically grown and that it has minimal concentrations of pesticides, herbicides, metals, and other unwanted compounds which may be detrimental to human health. For instance, high levels of pesticides have a high possibility of causing Leukemia, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Multiple myeloma, Soft tissue sarcoma, Cancers of the skin, lip, stomach, brain, and prostate.
