People of all ages and social demographics have been turning to CBD products for everything from headaches to bad joint and muscle pain.
This non-psychoactive compound is found alongside THC and other cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.
CBD offers some of the same medical effects of traditional cannabis without the intoxicating effects of THC. That means that even pets can safely ingest the compound, and there are many products on the market already made for cats and dogs. People get their CBD products in grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, vape shops, and on the internet. These sources and the products they carry offer a big variety in quality from good to unsafe. If you can’t find the lab testing data on your CBD products, you should find a safer and more reliable source. You don’t want to get CBD products intended for medical uses that still have leftover chemical solvents in them from when the CBD oil was extracted from the dry hemp flower buds. Sometimes the hemp flower is sprayed with pesticides while it grows, which will also affect the quality of the CBD that is eventually extracted from it. For all of these reasons, I’d rather go to a recreational or medical cannabis dispensary to get my CBD products. They often offer third-party lab testing information on their products regardless of whether or not you want CBD oils, tinctures, capsules, skin cream, or high CBD flower buds. Usually the quality is much higher at an actual marijuana dispensary opposed to a random source on the internet. If you can’t verify what is inside the product you’re consuming, you should look for a better source.
