CBD is just one of over 100+ types of cannabinoids, which can be found in a wide variety of plants. Even the human body creates cannabinoids! Some of the more commonly known cannabinoids include CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC.
CBD is a cannabinoid that helps support the body in a variety of ways. Ongoing research shows that CBD can promote general health and well-being and help to ease discomfort in joints, muscles, and nerves associated with aging or overuse. It has also been shown to support digestive function, immune health, and can even help to ease stress and anxiety.
What’s the Difference Between
Hemp and Marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana both belong to the Cannabis family. Agricultural hemp is a term used to classify varieties of Cannabis that contain 0.3% THC content or less. Hemp is, essentially, a non-intoxicating form of cannabis that is harvested for food, rope, clothing, paper, and, of course, CBD oil.
Marijuana is a term used to classify Cannabis plants that contain more than 0.3% THC content. It is THC that is responsible for the psychotropic effects. In other words, it’s the THC that gets you ‘high’.
Hemp plants are also generally grown for fiber harvest as well. Hemp is used in a wide variety of industrial products and food products. It can be used to create paper, roping, building materials, hemp flour, cooking oil, and much more.
Is CBD Right For Me?
Hemp-derived CBD oil has been shown to be remarkably safe and effective. Research continues to show support for CBD in a variety of health-supportive roles.
We’d suggest that CBD is a great choice for most people, whether you’re looking for a daily supplement for overall health and wellbeing, or whether you’re looking for specific support for a health condition under the care of your doctor.
If you’re pregnant or nursing, we’d suggest you consult with your physician before using CBD. If you’re taking any prescription medications, we’d suggest speaking with your pharmacist about any possible interactions with your drugs. (CBD oil can have a similar effect on some pharmaceutical drugs as grapefruits, lessening the efficacy of the drug.)
The Importance of Choosing Quality CBD
With the recent surge of CBD products on the market since the legalization of hemp-derived CBD on a federal level, there have been many CBD companies launching products.
Unfortunately, not all of these companies are following the appropriate protocols that would necessary to create top-quality products. Many use synthetic fillers, impure hemp extracts, and don’t follow manufacturing processes that ensure safety and hygiene.
Here’s some advice as to what to look for in a CBD brand, whether you’re buying from us or elsewhere. We meet or exceed all of our recommended criteria.
Choose a company that sources organic hemp from US or UK grown farms, that hasn't been treated with pesticides or herbicides. This ensures your CBD extract is free of potentially harmful chemicals and is derived from healthy, thriving plants. If you don't start with excellent ingredients, you have no hope for creating an excellent product!
If a company has a GMP certificate, it means that their manufacturing practices, facility, storage, shipping, and business practices, have met strict guidelines to ensure product quality and consumer and environmental safety. This certificate indicates conscientious business practices and products you can rely on.
Certificate of Analysis from Third-Party Testing Facilities
The best way to prove a product is pure, potent, and consistently manufactured is through testing by an unbiased third-party laboratory. All of our products undergo rigorous third-party testing. You can find the certificate of analysis (COA) for every batch on every product label. You can check your product COA at any time by scanning the QR code on your product and entering your batch number.
One of the best ways to know if you are choosing a great company is to look at their reviews! Do customers confirm their products work? Are they being taken care of by the company when problems arise? If people are leaving rave reviews and testimonials, you know that this is a company that works hard to ensure happy, healthy customers.
Although we do include dosing instructions on our packages, the correct dose can vary widely according to your gender, age, weight, and metabolism. We recommend that for all our hemp-derived CBD extracts, you start small and increase your dose gradually until you achieve your desired results. Depending on how quickly you increase your dose, this can take anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks.
If your physician has specific recommendations for your dosage, that’s perfect! Follow their lead and keep them informed as to how you’re doing.
I love how easy it is to use. I just add it to my morning coffee and I don’t even taste it!
When I tried other CBD products, there have been times where I haven’t felt anything and that’s frustrating. When I use this, I can feel it right away. That shows me I know I am getting what I paid for.
I have been so pleased with all the products I’ve purchased from MeCBD! I love their Full Spectrum oil (very mild flavor!), and my skincare routine has been absolutely revolutionized. When I contacted their team with a few questions, their response was prompt and friendly. Easy ordering, fast delivery, great staff. Love!
For value, it’s just really hard to beat MeCBD. They don’t cut corners on quality or testing and, with free shipping and a solid 30-day return policy, this is CBD for the masses.
