Avoid these 5 mistakes when buying CBD oil

You have lost the overview in the CBD jungle? We show you the way out of the thicket and tell you 5 mistakes that you should avoid at all costs when buying CBD oil. After this article, you will be able to distinguish good providers from bad and make an informed purchase decision!

Mistake 1: Buy cheap CBD oils

Many newbies choose a cheap supplier for their first CBD purchase. However, those who choose CBD oils solely based on a low price should be careful: many cheap CBD products are cheap for a reason. They often contain low-quality ingredients or low CBD content.

Conversely, of course, a high price is not a sign of quality. But it is a fact that almost all good CBD drops have their price – because the production of a high-quality oil requires high-tech equipment, highly qualified experts and both comprehensive and independent laboratory tests. Only in this way can the CBD with its valuable ingredients be gently extracted from the plant source.

Mistake 2: Do not check the source of the hemp

Good CBD oil does not go without good hemp. Make sure to only buy CBD oil from EU-certified hemp plants. This is the only way you can be sure that your CBD comes from high-quality hemp and is safe for health. Hemp from the USA is also high quality.

Warm is that so important?

Because hemp is a bioaccumulator. The plant absorbs everything from its environment and accumulates it in its tissue – so also dangerous chemicals, heavy metals or other toxins from contaminated soils. Many farmers in other countries also use harmful pesticides and herbicides to grow, which are also absorbed by hemp. This is especially the case in China and other regions of Asia.

Mistake 3: Do not pay attention to CBD concentration 

Whether 2%, 5% or 10%: CBD oils come in different concentrations. If you are trying CBD for the first time, a low CBD concentration is often sufficient. As a beginner, you probably won’t need much CBD to feel an effect.

Tip: We always recommend our customers to increase the dose gradually. Start small, see how your body reacts and then gradually increase your dose.

Mistake 4: Do not observe THC concentration

In principle, CBD oil can be extracted from both hemp and marijuana. If a company uses marijuana as a source for its CBD oil, this product will contain higher amounts of THC.

However, not all CBD oil is legal in many European countries. Make sure that your CBD drops do not contain more than 0.2% THC to be on the safe side legally. With most reputable suppliers like CBDNOL, you should have nothing to worry about.

Mistake 5: Expect miracles

Whether stress, headaches or epileptic seizures: According to numerous studies, CBD seems to have promising effects. Nevertheless, you should not expect miracles if you do not want to be disappointed after buying CBD. 

In most cases, CBD is not a quick fix to your problems. Every body reacts differently to CBD and it is quite possible that CBD will not work for you. It may also take your body several weeks or even months for CBD oil to interact with your endocannabinoid system and for you to start feeling benefits. Be patient!
