    How To Find the Best CBD Store Online?

    Social media has made advertising and purchasing most products easier and faster. CBD isn't exceptional, as people now use the platform to purchase CBD-infused products. This article explains how an individual can find the best CBD store online.

    Cannabis-derived products are gaining popularity today due to their health, beauty, and luxurious benefits. One of the most famous active compounds is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is sneaking its beneficial ways into a daily routine such as cooking, beverage taking, beauty products, and even pet food. Its promising health benefits draw consumers to CBD, from relieving pains and inflammation to boosting heart and immune system conditions. The high demand for the product was derived from the manufacturers using the social platform to advertise and sell the famous CBD products. However, to purchase the best CBD, the consumer must consider various facts and factors.

    What is CBD?

    CBD is a chemically active compound derived from cannabis, mostly the hemp plant. Hoban et al. (2020) explained that CBD is a class of many cannabinoids derived from the same plant. Another famous cannabis compound is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) which marijuana users mostly use due to its psychoactive properties (it brings a feeling of highness). CBD, unlike THC, is non-psychoactive. It is characterized by healthy properties such as ant-depressants, anti-inflammatory, and non-intoxicating. Wang & Beth. (2018) stated that the Food and Drug Administration had not regulated the manufacturing and marketing of CBD products, making them available online in various forms. On the online platform, CBD can be available in the following forms:

    • CBD topical- examples include CBD balms, lotion, cream, salve, face, and body scrub. They are mostly used in the beauty field by applied directly to the skin. However, they can be used for healthy issues by relieving joint and muscle pains, treating skin conditions like acne, and moisturizing and cleansing the skin.
    • CBD oil- is a commonly purchased product. It is extracted by diluting the CBD compound derived from the hemp plant with organic oils such as coconut, olive, and hemp seed oil.
    • CBD gummies- it is common for beginners and children since it has a low dosage of CBD concentration
    • CBD edibles- it popular for taking CBD orally without the unpleasant oil flavor of CBD
    • CBD vapes- involve turning CBD compounds into vape format and spraying it into users' mouths. It is easily absorbed, and its effect comes immediately after consumption.
    • CBD capsules and pills- are mostly available in online pharmacies. CBD compounds are solidified into pills which are taken orally as other medications

    Factors To Consider Purchasing the Best CBD Products Online

    Due to the high demand for CBD products, their price has shot up, ranging mostly from 50 to 100 dollars depending on the product type. Therefore, one can't wish to spend that much and fail to look at their preference. The following are important factors to consider for purchasing the best CBD product:

    Purpose of the CBD and Dosage

    It is important to consider this because various CBD types deal with different health issues. For instance, one can use some CBD forms to treat insomnia, while others can help deal with cancer symptoms. Also, the dosage of CBD depends on the user's preference. Chicoine et al. (2020) explained that CBD dosage could also be determined by considering the following:

    CBD Source

    Specchio et al. (2020) explained that where the cannabis plant is grown is a factor since the CBD's origin can determine the end product's pureness. The Hemp plant cultivated on rich soil, the more nutrients it will absorb, resulting in a high-quality product. Purchasing CBD extract from a hemp plant rather than another cannabis plant is important. The hemp plant has a high concentration of CBD compounds and a low concentration of THC.

    Purchasing CBD products extracted and cultivated in an organic derived method is important. During farming of Hemp plants for organic CBD products, avoid using chemical farming methods such as pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Moreover, the best CBD products are those diluted with organic distillate, such as coconut and hemp seed oil during extraction. The organic nature of the product heightens the benefits of CBD to the users and even adds healthier benefits. For example, coconut oil is known for reducing skin wrinkles and debris.

    CBD Type

    It is important to understand the type of CBD infused in the product you are purchasing since each type has its pros and cons depending on your usage. They are three different types of CBD available;

    • Full-spectrum CBD- contains all cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, including traces of THC, which results in a feeling of highness.
    • Broad-spectrum CBD- contains most cannabis cannabinoids except THC.
    • CBD isolate- is characterized by pureness containing only CBD compounds. It is created by extracting all cannabinoids in the hemp plant and leaving behind the CBD concentrates.

    Extraction Methods

    Consumers are advised to purchase CBD products extracted from the CO2 extraction method since it has proven to produce good quality CBD products. There are various techniques to extract CBD; some methods are much more efficient than others, while others may leave behind harmful residue solvents that can bring undesirable effects when consumed.


    The potent level of a product plays a big low in a person's dosage. The potency label of CBD products differs in each product, whereby low potency has 3 mg of CBD concentration and the highest potency is 8 mg. the higher the potency, the more effective the CBD is.

    THC Levels

    THC is one of the major components of the cannabis plant. Besides, it brings about a feeling of highness to its users. If you don't want to get high is good to purchase a product with low levels of THC (less than 0.03% THC).

    Reputation of Manufacturers

    Understanding the manufacturer is another aspect to consider when buying CBD products online. The manufacturer can affect the quality of end CBD products; one of the best ways to learn about the manufacturer's reputation is by reading online reviews and consumers' opinions and visiting their website. It would be best to be cautious about buying CBD from manufacturers with negative reviews and customer comments.


    CBD has gained huge popularity from most people, knowing its health benefits. But, if one wants to harness these benefits, they should ensure they are purchasing the right CBD product. There are different CBD products and sellers online, but not all can offer the best. Understanding the CBD type and taking key steps to know the Plant type, CBD source, company method of extraction, CBD potency, THC concentrations, organic CBD benefits, and manufacturer's reputation can aid in finding a high-quality CBD product.
