How to Shop For Quality CBD Products
The first time you shop for CBD can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, the market is largely unregulated, and therefore, has been infiltrated by low-quality, shady CBD products. That’s why we have composed this guide: to help you shop for the highest quality CBD products that you deserve.
Know What You’re Looking For
Everyone’s preferences will vary. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of CBD products to meet your needs. Unfortunately, this can lead many people to feel overwhelmed by this choice. Before you start shopping for CBD, it’s important to establish exactly what you’re looking for to avoid decision fatigue. Here are some factors to consider to determine what you’re looking for specifically.
If you’re opting for a CBD oil you take sublingually, taste is a factor that’s important to ensure that you keep taking CBD as part of your daily routine. If you’re not a fan of the taste of hemp oil, you will be reluctant to take your daily dose of an unflavored tincture. At nuhumun, we’re aware that many people find hemp unpalatable, which is why we offer our MicroMist in Cinnamon, Mango Passionfruit, Orange Cream, and Peppermint.
Like any discerning consumer, you’ll also want to consider the price of your CBD product before you invest. It’s important to find the right balance here. Of course, you want an affordable price, but be wary of CBD products with extraordinarily low prices. Quality is most often correlated with price, so if you’re looking for a product that is truly effective, looking for a bargain shouldn’t be the first priority. In the world of CBD, you really do get what you pay for.
Efficacy and Ease of Use
Both efficacy and ease of use have an impact on your CBD consumption patterns. For example, taking a CBD softgel is as easy as swallowing a pill, but a CBD oil spray is more likely to kick in faster. You will have to find the right balance between an effective method of consumption and an easy method of consumption for you.
Concentration indicates how much CBD is in your product. This indicates the strength of the product, and will be an important factor in determining whether it’s going to be effective for you.
You will also want to think about your ideal dose of CBD before you invest in a product. All CBD products come with different doses and concentrations. Higher doses of CBD may be appropriate for you if you’re dealing with severe chronic pain, but could be excessive for managing low-level stress, for example. Most people must go through the process of experimenting with dosing, starting with a lower dose and adjusting from there.
Here are some tips that may make it more likely that you invest in a product that meets your dosing needs:
- Make sure to invest in a CBD product that is clear about dosing. If the dose isn’t listed right on the label, this is a tell-tale sign of a brand that is trying to hide something from you — probably the fact that their product doesn’t work.
- Understand your goal for taking CBD. This will help inform you because your desired effect will have an impact on how concentrated you want a product to be. Once you decide your desired effect, do some research into standard CBD dosage for that issue.
- Talk to your doctor. Before you add any supplement into your daily routine, it’s wise to consult with a physician. They may be able to help you determine the right dose, informing your CBD shopping experience.
Choose Method of Delivery
These days, there’s no shortage of ways to consume CBD. This variety is thrilling, but overwhelming. To keep it simple, we’ll give you an overview of each of the CBD products we have to offer at nuhumun.
Softgels are a popular way to consume CBD. Many people find it easiest to add a softgel into your routine because getting your dose is as simple as swallowing a pill. They are also more discreet than many other methods of consumption. Finally, dosing is simple, as every softgel has a specific, precise dose.
At nuhumun, we offer CBD pills in two strengths: 10 mg and 25 mg. We also offer a couple of variations depending on your specific goals for CBD. You can get our CBD softgels for Focus or Sleep as well.
Our innovative MicroMist is a crowd favorite. Taking CBD sublingually has never been so easy and effective. Because this CBD oil spray is absorbed into the bloodstream through the tissue in the mouth, it is generally faster acting than CBD softgels. Our regular CBD MicroMist comes in Ceylon Cinnamon, Mango Passionfruit, Orange Cream, and Peppermint.
Due to the high demand for our MicroMist, we also created the Sleep MicroMist that is specifically designed to help you get a restful night’s sleep. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who struggles to get high-quality sleep every night, you may benefit from this formula, that includes melatonin and is vanilla-flavored.
If you’re taking CBD for pain, you may benefit from a topical salve. The benefit of topical CBD is that the CBD goes directly to the source of the problem. The nano-suspension technology used for our CBD products ensures greater bioavailability. We offer a CBD salve in Regular and Extra Strength, and scented with Cedarwood, Hawaiian Mist, or Lavender.
Know the Source
Not all hemp is created equal. Many questionable CBD products are made from low-quality hemp that’s grown overseas with subpar farming methods. For the highest quality, it’s best to invest in hemp products that are locally sourced. It’s important to inform yourself of where the hemp that created your CBD product is sourced from before you invest. At nuhumun, all of our CBD products are made from hemp grown in Colorado.
Check THC Levels
CBD is derived from cannabis, whether hemp or marijuana. Both of these sources will contain various levels of THC, though hemp has a significantly lower amount. THC is the cannabinoid is marijuana that’s credited with its psychoactive effects. This means that it’s important to know exactly how much THC is in any CBD product that you have. Individuals who are worried about a potential psychoactive effect or the possibility of THC coming up on a drug test should stick to CBD isolates, which contain no THC. At nuhumun, all of our CBD products are 0.0% THC, so you don’t have to worry about getting “high” from our products.
Shopping for CBD can be overwhelming, so we hope this guide has helped make it a little easier for you. Whether you’re in the market of CBD oil spray, topical CBD, or a CBD softgel, we’ve got you covered. Shop nuhumun for high-quality CBD products made from locally sourced hemp that contain absolutely no THC.
