Where to buy CBD Oil? How To Choose The Best CBD OIl
CBD or Cannabidiol is becoming increasingly more popular across the UK and the world, with Forbes releasing multiple articles regarding CBD in the past year.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD is the non-psychoactive component of the hemp plant. It is one of over 113 different phytocannabinoids found in hemp and is believed to aid the functioning of what is known as the Endocannabinoid system.
All of us have an ECS and it has existed for millions of years. It helps us regulate sleep, mood, and pain sensation which is why many consumers are looking to try CBD. CBD is believed to help influence the body to help us use what are known as endocannabinoids more effectively.
Cannabinoids are one of the key components of our ECS so by using them more effectively we help our ECS maintain what is known as homeostasis in the body meaning a balanced internal environment.
Where can I buy CBD oil near me?
Lots of High street shops are now stocking CBD Oil after learning of its growth in popularity across the world in countries where CBD is legal to buy.
A lot of the high street brands stock extremely low strength CBD Oils. Typically 2.5% strength CBD. This may be enough for a few people but not many, especially if you are looking to help treat anxiety, pain, or sleep problems with CBD.
Not to mention Holland and Barret were recently found to be selling CBD Oil, which had an illegal amount of THC in it.
A lot of people are ordering their CBD Oils from more reputable brands that deliver CBD in the post. As CBD is a popular supplement that many consumers want to incorporate into their daily routines it makes sense to get it delivered every month rather than going into town every time.
The question is how can you tell which company to use?
The reputable CBD Oil companies will always do the same things to help put their customers at ease when it comes to trusting that their CBD Oil is high quality, safe, and trusted.
1. Third-Party Lab Tested CBD
Always ask for the lab reports on the batch of CBD Oil the company is selling. This will allow you to see the CBD content and THC content if it is a full spectrum CBD Oil.
2. Choose an Accredited Company
Reputable companies will be accredited by organisations like the CTA (Cannabis Trades Association) meaning they adhere to all regulations currently in place in the industry.
3. Read what other customers have said about them.
A great way to tell if a product is a good quality is to see what others have said about it. Companies like trust pilot allow companies to receive verifiable reviews from actual customers.
Where to Start
First, you will need to work out which strength CBD Oil you need. You can do this in two different ways. The most efficient way is to order a CBD starter pack and try all three strengths to see which one has the desired level of effect.
The other option is to buy a 5% CBD oil and experiment with the dosage. If you need to increase the dosage then you can buy a stronger concentration next time.
Enhance's CBD oils are created using Supercritical Co2 extraction which means that no harmful chemicals are used and leaves you with a cleaner oil filled with the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plant.
Which CBD Oil Should I Buy?
There are three different types of CBD Oil available to buy currently. The three types of CBD Oil are:
- Full Spectrum CBD Oil - This Type of CBD Oil contains all of the other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant while staying below the legal THC limit (0.2%) by having the other cannabinoids it creates a synergistic effect known as the entourage effect that helps make the oil more effective.
- Broad Spectrum CBD Oil - Contains all the other cannabinoids but even less or No THC.
- Isolate CBD Oil - This will only contain the CBD cannabinoid and may not be as effective.
The most commonly purchased Oils are Full-spectrum Oils and Broad Spectrum Oils which is likely due to the fact they have more of an effect on the ECS than an Isolate Oil.
