Why You Should Never Buy CBD from a Random Store

Many people out there think all botanical products are the same, but there’s a good reason why you should never buy CBD from a random store.

From synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to mass-produced junk, there are many factors that separate good supplements from the rest. Buying from a reputable vendor ensures you get the best chance at feeling the full effects of a CBD supplement.

So what makes good CBD?

In this blog, we’ll talk about why some growers do it better than others and why the vendors who distribute their products have your best interests at heart.

What Makes Good CBD?

A tincture of CBD oilCBD comes from the cannabis plant, and growing it is an art that requires constant care, attention, and—perhaps most importantly—goodwill. It may seem pointless to worry about how plants feel as they’re growing, but research shows that the green, leafy kingdom has a fairly advanced sense of how it’s being treated.

Happy plants grow strong and produce higher-quality flowers.

This means better quality CBD.

Taking good care of plants isn’t easy. Farmers must know what plants need as well as when they need it. For example, many growers use silica early in the season to help plant stalks grow strong.

Once the plant has the strength needed to support the crop, feeding the plants molasses helps their flowers grow rich and even sweet.

Do bad growing practices show up in lab tests? No. As far as the metrics tested in labs go, your supplement will be as beneficial as any other product, but that’s not the whole picture.

Where Do Quality Differences Appear?

With higher quality flowers comes more product density and bioavailability as the CBD is ingested. This means your body has a better means of accessing its benefits—the better the quality, the more CBD your body can use.

Bioavailability isn’t always tested by labs. Instead, they ask whether or not CBD contains the right balance of compounds before slapping it with a label of approval. However, veterans of hemp and CBD will tell you that higher quality supplements just work better.

Long story short, if you buy your CBD from someone whose goal is bottom line profits, you’ll end up with mass-produced supplements that probably won’t work as they should.

What Sets High-Quality CBD Apart?

However, this is hard to tell from a lab report, since they only examine which compounds are present in the CBD and whether there’s any harmful residue from pesticides. The only way to know if your CBD supplement is of acceptable quality is to purchase it from a vendor who buys organic products grown with love.

Seriously, treating plants well has an effect on their growth. This isn’t mythology—it is detectable in the supplements you take.

How Do Organic Farmers Do It?

There’s a big difference between organic and non-organic growing styles. While organic farmers stick to solutions crafted by Mother Nature, nonorganic farmers use lab-developed synthetics that attack specific problems with little regard for unintended consequences.

As one review by the European Parliament showed, nonorganic products could lead to brain damage.

While it may seem like no big deal to use synthetic chemicals when growing cannabis, the damage they cause can last for decades.

As they decay, synthetic pesticides become toxic nitrites that kill microorganisms in the soil. Worse, these nitrites can react with the body’s vascular systems to potentially cause suffocation or even death.

This is why organic farmers stick to time-tested remedies when keeping harmful pests out of the garden. Take the spider mite, for example. This pest feeds on a plant’s chlorophyll, causing its leaves to weaken and absorb less sunlight. To avoid synthetic pesticides, the organic farmer instead raises a small army of predatory mites that feed on pests without harming the crop.

Neem oil is another organic pesticide chosen by organic farmers. It grows from trees and is non-toxic (it’s even in toothpaste!). So yes, growing organic can take some creativity, but you’d be hard-pressed to find an organic farmer willing to switch to synthetic chemicals.

The results speak for themselves.

It’s Easy to Buy Organic

Because crop yields of organic products are generally smaller, it costs more to grow them, but you don’t have to spend a fortune on high-quality products. Plus, buying from a reputable vendor ensures your CBD will work as intended.

Another perk of buying organic is having access to all the various terpenes and cannabinoids within the spectrum. An organic daily CBD wellness tincture contains more than just cannabidiol (CBD), so your body will get to use as much of the supplement as possible. Many non-organic CBD products isolate one cannabinoid, eliminating many of the compounds that make the hemp plant so useful.

Why Does It Matter Where You Buy CBD?

So now you’ve found an awesome CBD product you love. Should you should find it for as cheap as possible or buy from a vendor you trust? The answer is to go with a good vendor. Why? Because of customer service matters.

With a reputable vendor, you’ll have a team on your side that can answer your questions and ensure you’re satisfied. If something doesn’t work right, you won’t have to stomach wasted money on a poorly made supplement—just return your product and find one that better suits your needs.

Some companies take a commission on the products they sell, tempting them to push supplements that may not be right for you. These companies use spam tactics that aren’t as concerned with the truth as they are with your wallet. On the other hand, the right vendor will provide nothing but the best products, so you won’t have to wonder if what you buy is worth the money.

How Do I Know Which Company to Buy From?

Good reviews don’t come for nothing—a good vendor can lose customers over simple mistakes, so it’s worth checking out which companies keep their base happy.

Not only do reviews show you if a company keeps its customers happy, but you’ll also have a good idea of whether or not their products work as intended. Good reviews mean that customers are happy with vendors and the products they purchased.

CBD is a truly amazing wellness product, and it’s worth having in your life.

By purchasing your supplements from the right vendor, you can enjoy all the wonderful benefits CBD has to offer.
