Frequently Asked Questions by CBD Brand

In all my CBD research, I have found the FAQ portion of the brand's website to be most helpful in finding answers.  This section of the website is highly beneficial when looking for those key qualifications of a high quality brand.

Examples of questions found in the FAQ…

  • Do you ship internationally?
  • Does this product contain THC?
  • What extraction method do you use?
  • Is your product tested by an Independent 3rd Party Lab?
  • Is your hemp organically sourced?
  • Where is your hemp sourced?

Some of the websites make it hard to find the FAQ portion so we consolidated most of out Trusted brands into one post to make it easy for you to find the answers you’re looking for.

CBD101: Labs Are Important

Labs are important! I just saw someone in another group promoting their neighbors new CBD oil that is Full Spectrum and THC Free.

If you know much about CBD, products are either Full Spectrum OR THC Free (CBD Isolate).

I took a peek at the brand new website, which had very little information other than products with very high prices and NO LABS to confirm the marketing buzz words. It did not even have an ingredient list to reflect the carrier oil used in the product.

Don’t be scammed! Always ask for labs. Know exactly what you’re being sold. Some companies will promote their products as THC free when in fact, they have up to 0.3% which is the hemp defined threshold.

****I suppose you could mix several cannabinoid isolates together (CBD Isolate, CBN Isolate) for a Frankenstein type product and call it Full Spectrum without THC, but without labs, there is no way to know for sure.

CBD 101: Dosing – Drops vs Milligrams

If anyone gives you cbd Dosing advise to start with 2-3 drops or 3-5 drops per day (or 1 drop per day) and they do not work for a CBD company making a recommendation for their particular product, they do not understand CBD and you should not listen to them.

ALL DROPS ARE NOT EQUAL!

You can only dose with drops alone if you never intend to transition to another product, because 1 drop of Bluebird (regular) is 0.28 mg. 3 drops a day of Bluebird is 0.84 mg. If you want to change to Simply CBD Black, you cannot start at 3 drops because each drop of SimplyCBD Black is 5 mg and if you give 3 drops, you’re givino 15 mg and that is a huge increase over 0.84 and you will likely have a negative reaction.

Bluebird 1 drop = 0.28 mg

VS

SimplyCBD Black 1 drop = 5 mg

To find success with CBD, it is essential to dose by milligrams so you can transition and compare two products effectively.

Our Super Easy Dosing Calculator, does all the math for you and will calculate how many drops of your product you need to equal our recommended starting dose of 2 mg.

CBD: Most Effective Bioavailable CBD Products

What is CBD bioavailability and why is it important?

CBD Bioavailability is how much CBD enters the bloodstream and how efficiently it travels and is metabolized by the body.

When CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant it is in a concentrated form, much like crystalline powder.  In order to make it effective as a sublingual drop or oral additive, it must be infused to an oil.  However, some oils are more bioavailable than others.

MCT oil is the most efficient form and easiest absorbed by the liver.  MCTs are an efficient source of energy because MCT does not rely on other enzymes for absorption in the body.  MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides.  Medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that includes numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management. Coconut oil is one great source of MCTs.  It is also water soluble so it makes sense that a body, made of mostly water, would find it easy to metabolize.

If a CBD product is infused with MCT oil, the theory is, a person will be able to use less product and gain the same benefits as other CBD products that use hemp seed or olive oils to infuse with CBD.  This makes it more efficient, effective and affordable as products will last longer.

products

We Recommend these products as they meet our high standards and use MCT oil with their products.

CBD 101: What Are Terpenes?

What are Terpenes?  Terpenes are like essential oils. They are the natural scents and tastes from plants and nature.  They can induce a targeted response based on smell and tastes, much like diffusing rosemary essential oil helps improve memory.  There are hundreds of different terpenes in nature.  The earth is amazing, right!

Sativa vs Indica

Terpene specific strains induce a targeted response.  The cannabis plant’s terpene profile combined with its CBD/THC levels induce either a relaxed, calm feeling or an energized, productive feeling.  The cannabis plant breed which induces the energized and productive response is labeled Sativa and usually has a high level of pinene and/or limonene, while the relaxed and calming response is labeled as Indica andtypically has a high level of myrcene.

Terpene Strains

Terpene strains are byproducts of the Sativa and Indica broad categories.  After cross-breeding the Indica and Sativa plant’s, various other plants with more specific responses, were developed.  These strains have names like Bubba Kush and Grandaddy Purple.  They are a mix of the two main strains, with varying ratios.  There are literally hundreds of Terpenes strains now.

 

Products

The products below contain and are tested for terpene content.  The lab reports (found on the company websites) reflect the amount of terpenes present in the product.  Lab Reports are very important.  Without the labs, a user can not know exactly what is in their product.

Terpenes Only (without CBD)

Terpenes can be purchased separately and added to any CBD product to create more benefits and expand the CBD uses.  They can also be purchased to add flavor to any CBD product that is not pleasing to taste.

True Terpenes is an excellent source because they will define the benefits and advantages of each Terpene and Terpene Strain, as well as the mix and makeup of the Terpene strain to reflect which Terpene is dominant.

CBD 101: How To Read CBD Lab Reports

How to read CBD Lab Reports.  Lab reports are essential to researching and finding the best CBD product.  They provide a sense of transparency between the customer and the company.  They allow the consumer to know if the product is free of toxins, chemicals, and other possible synthetic substances.  Lab reports also reflect content of the product.  Is it an isolate that only contains CBD, or does it contain additional cannabinoids, making it a full spectrum product?  What about terpenes?  Are they also included in the product?

When researching a company or product, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, look for independent 3rd party lab results.  Why?  Because without a lab report, you do not know if the product contains any actual CBD, additional cannabinoids, toxins, or THC, if you are trying to avoid.  If the company does not have labs posted, or refuse to share the labs, they either do not test (which is a HUGE red flag), or the test results reflect something unfavorable.  

This is a high level overview for what to look for when researching labs.  I’m not a scientist, so I’m sure there is more to labs than what I’m going to share. This is my approach to reviewing labs…

What do I look for on the Lab Reports?

 FIRST, ARE LABS AVAILABLE TO CONSUMERS?

Lab reports are the first item to look for when researching a product.  Does the company have 3rd party lab reports?  Do they publish the reports online?  Can a customer request lab reports? 

Why is it important? 

A company that does not publish lab reports either does not test the product, or the product does not contain what the label says.  No company will publish unfavorable reports, so if they do not publish or provide reports, then avoid the product.   

CONTENT –

FULL Spectrum vs Isolate

Full spectrum products contain a mix of cannabinoids and terpenes.  This a pic of a full spectrum lab report.  Notice how you can see volume for cannabinoids CBD, as well as THC, CBC, CBN, etc.

 

Isolate products contain only CBD and no other cannabinoids or terpenes.  Other names for Isolate products are Pure CBD, 100% CBD, 99%+ CBD, 99%+ Crystalline Powder, and broad spectrum. Isolates are always THC Free.  Here is a pic of an Isolate product lab report.  Notice how the only Cannabinoids with volume is CBD and CBDv.

Cannabinoid Content

Through my research I’ve learned that CBG can help stabilize mood when combined with CBD.  So, for example, if I’m having trouble regulating my mood and experiencing bouts of anger, I’m looking for a product with CBD combined with CBG, right?

Here are examples of full spectrum products with CBG and another without CBG.  Both are full Spectrum because they include more cannabinoids than just CBD.

With CBG…

Without CBG…

 

Here are more labs from an Isolate (No THC).  Notice that no other cannabinoids are present, especially THC. 

Check out this article to see our recommended brands and what cannabinoids and terpenes they include. 

Terpenes

Terpenes are similar to essential oils.  They are the aromas and tastes associated with the original hemp or cannabis plant.  Terpenes can provide a targeted response such as a calming feeling.  Myrcene and linalool are both known to have sedative properties, while pinene is known to aid memory.  Not all labs test for Terpenes which does not mean they are absent. Contact the company directly if you have questions about Terpenes if they are not reflected in the lab results.  Here is an example of lab reports that reflect Terpene content.

Startups vs Experts  

Startups

Are the labs submitted and completed by the actual company you bought from, or a large CBD distributer which bottles and labels the product? 

With this emerging market, many startups are looking to cash in on the CBD industry and will simply order from a large distributor and have little understanding or knowledge of the industry itself.  Do not be fooled by a pretty label. 

These companies lack knowledge and understanding of CBD.  This is why it is important to purchase from a reputable company that has been operating for more than 2-3 years.  This gives the company much needed experience, customer vetting, and the customer confidence the company will be around for years to come.

Experts

Companies that harvest, bottle and distribute (experts in the industry) are who you want to purchase from.  These are the companies that have been around since the 2014 Farm Bill or shortly thereafter.  These companies have experience with CBD, they have a large customer base with excellent customer reviews.  They know the product.  They know every aspect from growing to harvesting, to extracting, to distributing.

CBD 101: Full Spectrum vs Isolate

What is the difference?  Full Spectrum vs isolate?

Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum is a product that has CBD plus additional cannabinoids (like CBC, CBG, CBN, THC, etc) and/or additional terpenes….basically, it’s not an Isolate.

CBDPure is a full Spectrum product because it has many cannabinoids including trace, legal amounts of THC.  This mix of cannabinoids and terpenes provide an entourage effect of benefits where each of the cannabinoids enhances or add to CBD. View the CPDPure Lab Reports.

Lab reports are very important.  Every CBD consumer should read the labs to know what is in a product.  Does it have THC?  Does it have CBG which has been researched and proven to stabilize and regulate mood?  Does it have CBC which has been researched and proven to aid in brain development?

Isolate

An Isolate includes CBD only (one cannabinoid), no other terpenes or cannabinoids.  There are fancy names for isolates such as Broad Spectrum, 100% CBD, 100% Pure CBD, 99%+ Crystalline CBD and so on.

KoiCBD is an Isolate product.  Their products include no THC and the labs reflect exactly the content.

Summary

An Isolate is like a vitamin C pill, while a Full Spectrum product is like an entire orange (provides vitamin c, fiber, other nutritional qualities). Both are good, both provide benefits, but full spectrum products provide a bit more.

It is important to read the labs to see if you are purchasing an Isolate or Full Spectrum and what is included if it is labeled full spectrum.
