CONSIDERING CBD THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW
Choose products made with American help
If you purchase CBD oil in the U.S. from one of the 10 states where both recreational and medical cannabis use is legal, there's a better chance you'll get a higher-quality product than if you buy one made with hemp-derived CBD oil imported from abroad, says Martin Lee, director of Project CBD: Medical Marijuana and Cannibidiol Science https://www.projectcbd.org/ , a nonprofit that promotes medical research on CBD.
Note the amount of CBD and THC per dose
There's no definitive amount that's appropriate for everyone, but the ratio of CBD to THC will indicate how psychoactive the product is and if it's legal in your state. The more CBD compared with THC, the less of a high and vice versa. "Managing psycho-activity is key to successful cannabis therapy," says Lee, author of Smoke Signals. "Amounts should be made clear on the label and lab-certified so people know what's helping them and what's not.
Look for "full-spectrum" or "broad-spectrum"
These terms mean that all or most of the components that can be extracted from the hemp plant are in the oil. The wider the range included, versus just CBD, the greater the potential medicinal benefit of the product, says Lee.
