What to look out for when buying CBD oil

When buying CBD oil and CBD supplements there are several things you should look out for to ensure that you’re getting a safe and effective product. Here are some important factors to consider:

  1. Third-party testing: Look for CBD products that have been third-party tested by an independent lab. This will ensure that the product contains the amount of CBD advertised and is free from harmful contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and residual solvents. Here at HempWell all the wonderful products in our CBD shop are third-party lab tested for quality and consistency.
  2. CBD source: Check where the CBD is sourced from. High-quality CBD is usually sourced from organically grown hemp plants in the United States, Europe, or Canada. Avoid CBD products that come from unknown or questionable sources. You can learn about where our CBD comes from and we’re confident in our quality thanks to our seed-to-shelf model.
  3. Extraction method: Look for CBD products that use CO2 extraction, as this method is considered to be the safest and most effective way to extract CBD from hemp. Avoid products that use harsh chemicals such as butane or ethanol.
  4. THC content: Check the THC content of the CBD product. Purchasing safe and legal products is important. All of our CBD food supplements are FSA approved legal food supplements in the UK, including our fantastic pure CBD oils available in a range of flavours.
  5. Ingredients: Check the ingredients list of the CBD product. Look for products that use natural ingredients and avoid products that contain artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives.
  6. Dosage: Check the CBD dosage per serving or per capsule. Make sure that the dosage is clearly stated on the label and that it matches the amount of CBD advertised.

By paying attention to these factors, you can ensure that you’re getting a high-quality and safe CBD product that meets your needs. It’s also a good idea to consult with a health professional before using CBD to discuss any potential risks or interactions with other medications you may be taking.
