Understand Your Product
Your friend tells you about this great new restaurant that just opened down the road. The offer food you’ve never tried, but you’re intrigued enough to check out their menu. Time goes on and more people are talking about it, but you’re still not sure if it’s the best fit for you.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is similar to the restaurant down the road. It’s gaining popularity as it stocks local shelves and finds itself featured in the news.. But, with so many products out there, how do you pick the one that is right for you?
When you’re purchasing a CBD oil, here’s some tips to keep in mind:
Does the company provide their third-party lab results?
If the company doesn’t provide their third-party lab results for their customers, there’s a possibility that they aren’t being completely honest about their product.
Realistically, if a company has nothing to hide, why not share them?
The third party lab results provide customers with the right information to ensure a product is safe and effective. From the results you can determine the products quality, purity, potency and more.
Companies use different extraction methods for their CBD oil. Each method has its own pros and cons.
Typically, the two most common methods are C02 extraction and Ethanol extraction.
C02 extraction is known for its effectiveness in maintaining terpenes and preventing cannabinoids from deactivating during the extraction process. It also aims to eliminate stress or damage to the bioactive constituents of the plant without leaving any chemical-solvent residue. But, compared to other methods, C02 extraction requires more expensive equipment. NatureRx uses this method.
Some companies choose to use a cheaper alternative called Ethanol extraction. If extracted correctly, this method is considered a cheap, safe, and efficient alternative. However, it does have its limitations. For example, have you ever heard that CBD oil tastes bad?
That’s because it typically does. Users often say CBD supplements taste “earthy” or “grassy”. The reason for this is ethanol. When ethanol is used, it extracts large amounts of chlorophyll which creates an overall unpleasant taste. Meanwhile, C02 extraction removes chlorophyll.
You should keep in mind the product’s origin. Why is this important?
Sometimes farmers intentionally spray their crops with harmful chemicals in order to boost their growth and protect them from insects or animals. These contaminants can range from pesticides, metals, and synthetic cannabinoid bacteria.
These chemicals are harmful to humans. In fact, products containing pesticides can lead to long-term health complications, like cancer.
If the hemp plant used contains pesticides, then it’s possible that they will end up in the final product.
With NatureRx, you don’t have to worry. Our full spectrum hemp oil is refined in our state of the art facility that employs the same Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) employed by the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. This allows us to gently extract the bioactive hemp oil at low temperatures, with no stress to the plant and no chemical solvent residue.
Does the product provide different options in terms of strength? At NatureRx we have two options:
- 300mg, for low to moderate health requirements
- 500mg for stronger needs
Our third-party lab results are provided for anyone on the NatureRx website.
This might not be the most important, but it’s still something to consider just in case. Some companies offer a money-back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied with the product.
We hope you’ll love NatureRx, but if for any reason you’d like to return it, you can get your money back within 30 days.
Look into what the company values and see if they line up with yours. We are committed to honesty, integrity and transparency.
What social issues does the company care about? You’ll notice that NatureRx doesn’t just focus on our CBD oil itself, but we made our packaging 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
We hope this helps you on your journey to finding the CBD oil that works best for you.
