The world is fast evolving and changing, and so is everything in it! The market system of the world today is no exception to this evolution. Many stores now take their online presence seriously. Even pre-coronavirus, online shopping was increasing and becoming the preferred way to shop. Perhaps most interesting to us is this: along with these skyrocketing eCommerce trends, CBD use is also increasing during COVID-19, and those looking for how to buy the best quality CBD oil online have increased more than ever before.
CBD comes in all shapes and sizes, with a huge variety of products that are available on the market right now containing CBD (read: makeup! Bath bombs!). There’s no doubt about it, the interest in CBD and the benefits of its use have become mainstream, and often it can feel overwhelming trying to navigate the sea of new CBD products and brands out there.
With so many CBD products and options available to you online today, how do you know you’re buying the highest quality, safest stuff?
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: CBD products are becoming more and more popular. In 2019, CBD popularity skyrocketed, and CBD manufacturers flooded the market with different products from oils to topicals, pills, gummies, and more.
However, not all of them are reputable companies selling high-quality products. There are lots of low-quality or even fake CBD products on the market today. So, we will help you find out how to buy the best quality CBD oil online.
Some of these products contain THC, a psychotropic cannabis compound, or could contain toxic chemicals and even extra filler ingredients. Not knowing exactly what is in your CBD product can be extremely dangerous to your health and cause severe poisoning. In 2017, more than 50 people from Utah were hospitalized with strong intoxication caused by consuming synthetic, fake products falsely labeled as CBD. It was later discovered that they used products made from Spice, a form of synthetic marijuana.
First, let’s do a quick recap.
Cannabidiol is a natural compound from the cannabis plant and is well known for its therapeutic benefits. It helps to manage pain, inflammation, skin rashes, PTSD, and countless other symptoms. Unlike THC, another natural cannabis plant compound, cannabidiol (CBD), does not make you high, as it is not psychoactive. It works with the endocannabinoid system in your body, and consists of cannabis-like molecules called endocannabinoids, which transmit signals from the body to the brain and helps to keep them in balance. CBD reacts with CB1 and CB2 receptors to boost the endocannabinoid system to produce more molecules to help to relieve unpleasant symptoms.
After extensive research into the relatively new discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), we now know CBD is involved in a wide variety of bodily functions, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules in our body.
Understanding the technical terms and lingo of the rapidly expanding CBD industry is difficult with endless new companies popping up everywhere, each offering a wide variety of products all claiming to be the best, and, of course, THC free CBD!
The industry and legal standard for THC concentration in CBD products is less than 0.3% THC by weight. What this means is that a CBD product may legally contain up to three parts of THC for every 1000 parts of oil by weight. In order to determine if a product is within this legal limit, reputable CBD manufacturers have their products tested by third-party labs to obtain a Certificate of Analysis.
One of the most frequent claims is a THC free CBD product. What does it mean to be considered THC free? Learning that a THC free product can actually contain THC, might seem confusing and dishonest, but the true definition of this claim may not be what you expect.
What puts Patriot Supremes’ CBD oil above the rest is our non-detect levels of THC. Understanding the concept of non-detect (ND) level is key. Claiming zero THC or THC free is easy for a CBD business, but from a scientific perspective, it is more complicated than that.
‘Non-detect’ is the accurate term.
The THC concentration in Patriot Supreme CBD oil is too minuscule to be detected by the sensitive instruments used in third party testing labs. In fact, all of our CBD products have no detectable trace of THC and are therefore considered non-detect.
If you want to avoid wasting money on junk with no medicinal properties or even potentially buying a product that could harm you…. you MUST buy from a company that clearly displays third party Certificates of Analysis (COA).
CannaSafe is the leading lab in cannabis, CBD and CBD testing. They were founded almost 10 years ago and were the first fully ISO 17025 accredited cannabis testing lab in the world. What that means is that their laboratories have an acceptable quality management system in place, and it has the ability and competence to provide testing and calibration results. What that really means is that the third party testing lab got third party tested….! CBD businesses can have full confidence in the integrity of CannaSafe labs and know they will receive the highest quality and most accurate testing data possible.
It is highly recommended to avoid purchasing ANY CBD products from Amazon. This marketplace currently does not allow the sale of CBD products and that is why you cannot find any well-known reputable brands for sale on Amazon.
Sadly, Amazon is a warehouse full of fake products sold by individuals who understand that CBD is a highly searched keyword and very trendy. At best, you will buy a CBD seed oil (which does not have any of the health benefits and values of true CBD) instead of a CBD oil. And at worst, you can buy a synthetic product that could be harmful to you.
Patriot Supreme is transparent with its CBD products and confidently has made its CannaSafe certificates easily accessible right on our website. You can feel assured knowing you are buying top quality, THC free CBD tested in the top lab in the world. By having CannaSafe test our products, we ensure the products we grow (in the U.S. only!), manufacture and distribute are safe and effective.
