SourcingYou should look for information on the label that says where your cannabis/hemp was sourced from. Always purchase hemp that’s grown in the USA to ensure your hemp is regulated and free of contaminants.
Ingredients to watch out forThis, of course, is largely subjective depending on your body type and preferences. Those seeking the full health benefits of CBD may want to opt for products devoid of artificial sweeteners (like glucose syrup or high fructose corn syrup), coloring (Red dye #40), emulsifiers or preservatives. You should also exercise caution when reading the label as many products note they are made in facilities that may expose products to allergens like wheat and soy.
Opt for edibles that use natural ingredients instead. This can include edibles that use cane sugar instead of corn syrup, or real fruit juice. You can also find many CBD edibles that are vegan and gluten-free.
Ideal extraction methodsYou can extract CBD in a number of different ways, and some are certainly better for you than others. One of the cleanest cannabis extraction methods is supercritical CO2 based extraction. This method uses no solvent and allows for the greatest preservation of cannabinoids and terpenes in the final product, aka giving you the best CBD has to offer.
You also want to be sure you’re buying a CBD infused product. Some CBD gummies may cut corners by simply spraying the gummies with a CBD isolate and sugar mix that coats the exterior. These gummies, of course, are going to be less potent than an infused product, and tend to be the kind of edibles that give you a headache the next day (probably due to all that sugar, but who knows).
