Since its legalization following the Farm Bill’s passing in 2018, CBD-infused products have taken the wellness market by storm. Before then, not many people had even heard of CBD. But as awareness grew, so did the number of people looking to make a quick buck off of unsuspecting consumers. Suddenly, the marketplace was flooded with CBD products. You could not even walk into a gas station or convenience store without seeing CBD products at the register. Because of the unprecedented demand, CBD retailers sprang up overnight, each of them offering their own line of products.
But alas, all CBD is not created equal. While the labels may seem similar, don’t be fooled. The difference in quality can be astronomical. In fact, some of those “gas station” products may not contain any CBD at all. There really is no way to know unless you get your products from an established, reputable company. A reputable company like New Leaf Botanics will give you the information you need and have a website dedicated to educating their consumers about CBD. They will have customer service representatives ready to answer any questions you may have.
In addition to all of the information we provide, we want to suggest two critical factors to look for when shopping for CBD products: organically sourced ingredients and zero THC.
Organically Sourced Ingredients
CBD oil produces wellness benefits, but it must be absorbed by your body. Premium retailers like New Leaf Botanics offer a myriad of products that can be ingested in several ways. But one thing every product in our line has in common is its excellent quality ingredients. But all products are not created equal. Lesser quality manufacturers allow potentially harmful components to make it into their products, and if you ingest those products, those ingredients make it into your body. And since the whole point of taking CBD is to increase your health, you can see how critical it is to be sure that you only buy products that guarantee the highest standards.
This is why New Leaf Botanics only uses CBD derived from organically sourced hemp grown right here in the United States. That should be important to you, and here is why.
Hemp grown in the United States is produced under strict controls. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees these controls to ensure that farmers follow their strict guidelines. Imported hemp from other countries may not follow these guidelines. In fact, you have no way of knowing if they observe any guidelines at all. Therefore, the ever-present danger is that those products may contain pesticides and other dangerous chemicals, and you certainly do not want to absorb any such chemicals into your body. Organically sourced hemp is grown without the use of pesticides and chemicals. So you can rest assured that you are getting the quality ingredients that you want, without chemicals you don’t want.
There are several different CBD products on the market today. Most fall into one of two categories: full-spectrum and broad-spectrum.
Full-spectrum CBD means that the hemp was processed at the peak of its potency to extract not only CBD but CBC, CBG, THC, and other cannabinoids as well. Helpful flavonoids and terpenes are also removed. These cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes combine to provide what is known as “The Entourage Effect.” This means that the CBD, working in tandem with cannabinoids and other ingredients, produces a much richer effect than just CBD isolate alone. Full-spectrum CBD is federally legal because it contains no more than .3% THC, which is unknown to cause psychoactive side effects.
Broad-spectrum CBD is also known as 0 THC or THC-Free CBD. This product is derived in the same way as the full-spectrum CBD. However, an additional step is taken during processing to remove all traces of THC. By doing this, the consumer gets all of the Entourage Effect benefits, but without the worry of ingesting THC.
We are proud to carry these CBD products in our New Leaf Botanics inventory are broad-spectrum, which means they contain zero THC. This is especially important for people who would rather not ingest THC for religious, employment, or other reasons.
