This Is A Quick List of CBD Oil Do’s and Don’ts

Buying CBD oil is one thing, but so many of you still have questions about what to do with once the product arrives at your door. With so much misinformation on the web today about what CBD oil is and what the benefits of CBD oil are (or are not, for that matter), it’s no wonder that the internet is filled with headlines that are just full of wrong information.

Heartland CannAssist likes to think we know a thing or two when it comes to CBD oil. So we figured we’d put together a quick list of do’s and don’t for new old CBD users alike.

Whether you prefer CBD oil or CBD edibles or CBD creams, being armed with the proper information is an extremely important thing to do before opening the bottle. That’s why we present to you our list of CB-do’s and CB-don’ts.

Know the Source & the Strain

As with anything, CBD quality greatly depends on its source—that is, where it was grown— and the strain of hemp it was extracted from. How the CBD hemp is grown is actually the most important factor, and knowing the source and the strain will tell you a lot about how well it is grown. Hemp can easily be grown using completely organic methods, but some manufacturers opt for cheaper and less healthy farming and production methods and choose to use chemical fertilizers and pesticides that can end up in the final product. Extracts produced in the US and EU tend to be much higher quality and safer than products produced in China where regulations are significantly more lax. Do some research and see where the brand you are considering buying gets their extract.

Petroleum-Free CBD Processing

To obtain CBD—the kind you can get over the counter—the compound needs to be extracted from hemp, which can be done in a variety of ways. To produce top-quality, CBD-rich products, a safe and organic extraction method should be used, such as supercritical CO2 (liquid carbon dioxide).

The older, Petroleum-based extraction methods are very inexpensive to perform but can leave behind toxic solvents such as propane, hexane, pentane, and butane, none of which you want in your system. Even small amounts of residues can compromise the immune system. That’s very counterproductive for a product that’s supposed to be medicinal.

All of CBD products Heartland CannAssist sells are made with CBD extracted using supercritical CO2 which leaves zero toxic residues.

Do Make Sure Your CBD Oil Has Less Than 0.3 Percent THC

By definition, the hemp plant contains less than 0.3 percent THC, which as most of you know is hardly enough to cause a “buzz” let alone any kind of high. That’s why it’s important to make sure that your CBD oil comes from a hemp plant that contains only trace amounts of THC. The whole purpose of hemp-derived CBD is to enjoy the benefits without the high anyway.

There are way too many companies out there today that don’t check their standards on this one. We make sure that all of the products we sell is up to code when it comes to THC levels. Which brings us to our next point…

Don’t Buy CBD Oil That Contains Synthetics

All-natural hemp-derived CBD oil, like the kind you find at Heartland CannAssist, is top of its class because it’s all-natural. We’re sure you’ve seen some of the headlines out there about companies that try and slip synthetics into their CBD products, which not only diminishes the quality but can be extremely dangerous for the user as well.

The whole point of taking CBD oil is to improve your health and wellbeing, not to make yourself feel worse. The CBD products we sell contain absolutely no synthetics; They’re made from 100 percent all-natural hemp cultivated from farms in the U.S. and abroad. The best way to ensure this is to…

Make Sure Your CBD Oil Company Uses Third-Party Lab Tests

That’s right, the only way to ensure the correct levels of THC and to guarantee that there are no synthetics in your products are to buy CBD oil from companies that test their products using third-party labs. Independent third-party labs guarantee the safety of the CBD oil that you buy and ensure that the entire industry stays above board.

All the companies from which we obtain our CBD products have rigorous third party testing.  We work hard at including those lab results in our product descriptions. 

Don’t Ignore The Dosage Charts

We provide handy dosage charts for all of our CBD oil products to help you know how much CBD oil is in every drop of every bottle that you purchase. While CBD oil is one of the safest compounds on earth, all good things still come in moderation. Taking too much could make you a bit drowsy, and that’s something you don’t want during the workday.

Our dosage charts break down every size bottle, from 15 ml bottles to 30 ml bottles to everything in between. So before you break open the seal, make sure check your dose. Always start small and work your way up, because you can always take more, but you really can’t take less. And speaking of how much you take…

Don’t Give Your Pets Your CBD Oil

As tempting as it may be, never give your cat or dog your CBD oil. It’s not even a question of lowering the dose, as our pets physiology is different than ours, and thus they require their own special type of CBD oil. CBD for cats and CBD for dogs is specially formulated for their little bodies (or in the case of some dogs, giant bodies).

Check with your vet to see if CBD for pets is right for your dog or cat and then look into our specially formulated CBD for pets. Just like it does for you, it can help them with all sorts of ailments from pain to stress to inflammation.

And Finally, Look at the CBD Products We Have

Our wide selection of CBD oil, CBD edibles, and CBD creams, not to mention CBD for pets will have you coming back for more. Just remember to follow this quick list of do’s and don’ts and your CBD experience will be the best it can be.
