Why Does Quality Matter with CBD?

You are reading this blog, so you have at least a passing interest in CBD. Or maybe you have researched the beneficial effects that CBD has on our bodies and are ready to take that leap toward a healthier lifestyle. You may even be currently using CBD, but still harbor questions about whether what you are taking is the highest quality, or whether you are using the best ingestion method for your particular needs. 

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a health supplement that has gotten a good deal of attention recently. Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-based products that contain .3% THC or less are now legal to sell in the United States. Once consumers started experiencing the many positive effects of CBD, the demand for it has skyrocketed. Unfortunately, when the demand for a product skyrockets like this, you inevitably see the snake-oil salesmen popping up everywhere trying to profit from the craze.

Where Can You Find CBD?

In a word: Everywhere.

Mom & Pops: Businesses that carry CBD seem to be popping up everywhere. You can drive down a main thoroughfare in just about any city, and you are likely to see small mom & pop smoke shops or vape shops that now also sell CBD products. Most of these shops still sell their main lines (like vaping supplies), but they are now adding CBD to their list of products. But what do you know about these products and what is actually in them?

Truck Stops, Quick-Stops, Gas Stations: If you’ve been traveling recently, you likely have pulled into a gas station to refill your tank and grab a quick snack. And it’s very possible that as you are paying for your candy bar and other road snacks, you see an entire display of CBD products right next to the cash register. But again – is there any way to know if any of the multitude of products on display are actually any good?

Amazon: And then, there are the online retailers like Amazon that carry dozens of brands of CBD as well as a dizzying array of CBD products for you to purchase online. Most of these products tout the benefits of CBD but are a little hazy on specifics when it comes to the quality of the merchandise offered. 

Coffee Shops: Yes, even coffee shops are getting into the act. There are coffee shops that will now add CBD to your coffee for an additional fee. Admittedly, this is a great idea as the alertness and energizing effect of caffeine mixed with the focusing and calming effect of CBD makes a fantastic combination. However, how much do you know about the quality of the CBD that is being added to your coffee? Is it actually even CBD?

Neighbors & Friends: And lastly, even your neighbor may now sell CBD oil. CBD has hit the multi-level marketing world so now you can likely purchase it even from a friend, co-worker, or acquaintance. And with the proliferation of CBD products on the market, how do you know that what you’re taking is the “real thing?”

Quality Matters

Make no mistake, quality matters.

Think about it for a moment. If you buy CBD from a gas station, you don’t really know what you are getting, do you? Sure, the CBD bottle may claim to have the strength that you are looking for, but what is actually in it the bottle? You would hope that it is pure and high quality CBD, but is it really? How was it grown? Where was the hemp processed? Does it contain THC? Does it contain any unwanted chemicals or pesticides? 

These are all important questions to ask because, let’s face it, you are putting this product into your body. Just like any other supplement, you have to ingest CBD or use it as a topical ointment – which means that your body is absorbing it. So if there are harmful chemicals, solvents, or pesticides used in the growth or production of the product, then you are ingesting those as well as the CBD itself. 

In addition, some CBD products do contain trace amounts of THC. By law, CBD must have .3% THC or less. And while that is not enough THC to result in psychotropic effects, it can still register on a drug test. So if you have occupational, religious, or any other reasons that you don’t want to ingest THC, you need to make sure that the CBD you take doesn’t contain any THC at all – not even trace amounts.

What Sets OM Grown Organics Apart?

Our Process

At OM Grown Organics, every step of the process that our CBD oil goes through is focused on one word: Quality. All of our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp is grown in the fertile soils of Colorado without the use of pesticides. From there, the oil is processed without the use of harmful chemicals or solvents. During this process, all traces of THC are removed. This means that all of our products (our tinctures, softgels, gummies, and even our dog treats) are of the highest quality available on the market today. 

Third-Party Laboratory Testing

And most importantly, all of our products are third-party laboratory tested for quality. That’s right, all of our CBD products are tested by a third-party laboratory to ensure that our stringent, high-quality standards are met. Try getting that from a gas station CBD line. In addition, all of our products are assigned a batch number that can be easily used to locate our third-party lab reports confirming that our CBD meets the strictest of quality standards.
