If you’re interested in buying CBD products, you may be wondering if it’s safe to purchase online, or if you should go to a brick-and-mortar. If you want to buy CBD oil online, or any other CBD product, there are a few things to take into consideration. 

First, not every CBD product is the same. You’ll come across low-quality products just as frequently (if not more) as you will high-quality products. It’s important to vet every company, including the CBD they’re selling. 

In this article, we’ll tell you exactly what to look for so you can safely buy CBD oil online.

Buy Certified Third-Party Lab-Tested CBD 

You should always make sure the CBD you buy has been tested by a third-party laboratory. If the product was not tested by a third-party, you won’t know what’s in it. Unfortunately, you can’t merely trust the product label because CBD products aren’t federally regulated. 

As a result, a company can claim you’re getting the purest CBD, but what you’re really buying contains contaminants and heavy metals. If the company does not have the lab reports listed on their website, reach out and ask to view their certificate of analysis. 

It’s important to understand that some companies won’t show their results until you’ve purchased a product.

At Superior Hemp Oil, all of our tincture droppers are certified third-party lab tested. We say so right on our website because we have nothing to hide.

Read the Ingredients 

Read the product’s full ingredient list before you buy CBD oil online. In most cases, CBD oil has two main ingredients: hemp and carrier oil. Other ingredients can be added for taste or other health benefits. If the company does not list the ingredients on their product, this is a red flag.

An example of ingredients you want in your CBD oil is what we incorporated in our full-spectrum CBD oil. Our ingredients are clearly listed so you know what you’re putting into your body:

  • Certified full-spectrum CBD hemp oil
  • MCT coconut oil
  • Peppermint oil
  • Stevia

Ideally, you should know all of the ingredients without having to look them up, but if you don’t recognize an ingredient, research it. Some natural ingredients have complex names.

Don’t Buy Cheap CBD, Buy Affordable CBD

It’s nice to save a buck, but if you buy CBD oil online and the price was ridiculously low, there’s probably a reason for that. Many products on the market are low-quality and don’t contain the amount of CBD listed on the product label. 

When purchasing products, keep in mind that most CBD oil is relatively expensive because it’s expensive to manufacture. When a company sends the product to be lab tested by a third party, that also costs money.

That’s not to say affordable prices aren’t available, as we offer our products at a competitive price. Nevertheless, if you’re purposely seeking out and buying cheap CBD oil, then it’s likely an inferior product.

Find Out Where the Hemp Was Grown

Be wary of brands that don’t tell you where the hemp was grown. There are some CBD brands that will buy from hemp suppliers without knowing where themselves. They’re likely buying from that supplier because they’re selling at the lowest price. 

However, if the hemp was grown in contaminated soil, this can lead to dangerous chemicals ending up in your product. This includes heavy metals, such as arsenic and lead, as well as toxins. 

Depending on the country, the farmer cultivating the hemp may have used dangerous pesticides to grow their plants, which the hemp would have easily absorbed.

Knowing what you put into your body goes beyond reading the ingredient list, but also knowing where your hemp was grown. At Superior Hemp Oil, all of our products are made from hemp plants grown in Colorado.  

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate 

When buying CBD hemp oil online, you’ll see these terms often as you shop and it may be a bit confusing. Here is a quick explanation of each.

Full-spectrum: extracted from the plant along with other cannabinoids, like THC.

Broad-spectrum: like full-spectrum, but without THC.

CBD isolate: pure CBD extracted from the hemp plant and isolated from other cannabinoids.
