Tips for buying online
Even though there’s not a live person to talk to when buying online, it can still be a fun and easy process. And when you do have questions, give the company a call or send them an email.
Ok, so let’s start with step one. The first thing you want to do is find the top CBD strains you’re interested in. To do this, run a quick google search or start by researching a few of our favorite strains like Lifter, Sour Space Candy, or Hawaiian Haze.
The information you’ll find on each strain will include the total CBD percentage, as well as the percentage of every other cannabinoid in the strain. For instance, you’ll see if the Delta 9 THC levels are less than 0.3%, as mandated by state and federal laws. Also, there may be other awesome cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV, CBL, and more.
LOOK AT CBD PERCENTAGE:
The CBD percentage can range from 12% t0 20%. So, if you’re a brand new hemp smoker, you might want to start with a lower percentage. But, it’s all up to you. Remember, CBD isn’t psychoactive, but it still has effects. So, go with what feels comfortable to you.
READ ABOUT TERPENES:
Other information you may want to look up is the terpene profile. Terpenes give the plant its aroma and flavor. You’ll find terpenes in flowers, fruit, trees, herbs — nearly anything that grows from the Earth has terpenes.
Some of the most common terpenes you’ll read about are Myrcene, Caryophyllene, Limonene, Pinene, Linalool, Humulene, Bisabolol, and a few others. If you’re curious, look up the effects and therapeutic potential of a few terpenes. This may help you decide the type of strain you want to buy.
READ ABOUT THE SOURCE OF HEMP:
Hemp flower grown in the United States has a strong reputation for quality. And at a minimum, it’s been lab-tested for cannabinoid levels. Again, this proves the actual CBD potency and THC level.
Not only that, but some farmers in the United States are using sustainable and organic farming methods, as they once did before the GMO era. The demand for natural, unadulterated crops grows day by day. And this isn’t only beneficial for you, the consumer, it’s also great for the land and the planet.
As such, tracking down organic CBD nugs won’t be impossible. Yet, on the same token, not every CBD company offers this. Only the best ones do.
