In my last article about CBD, I explained what it is, how it may work inside the body, and what it might be used to treat. This article will focus on sourcing CBD for personal use, quality control (artificial ingredients, chemicals, etc.), route of administration and dosage.
For the consumer looking for CBD products, it is the Wild West out there and it can be very confusing on what to choose, based on how they are produced. To keep it simple, I very much recommend a full spectrum, certified organic, non-industrial hemp product. This ensures that you get not only the full spectrum of CBDs, but also other potential helpful aspects of the plant like terpenes (chemicals said to enhance the therapeutic effects of CBD). Avoid CBD isolates, industrial hemp, broad spectrum CBD, and hemp oil as these are typically inferior products that might contain pollutants and industrial contaminates.
