With the popularity of CBD continuing to grow, we see a lot of new first-time CBD buyers who are a little lost on what to buy. Many first-time buyers have been recommended CBD by friends or family members, but they don’t know what kind of products to look for or what questions to ask to find the right product.

If you are new to CBD, check out this first-time CBD buyers guide to learn a few tricks about what CBD does and the products you may be interested in trying.

1. Know What You Need From CBD

Before purchasing CBD, it is always a good idea to understand your reason for taking it. According to a Cross-Sectional Study of Cannabidiol Users, nearly 62 percent of those who use CBD do so to treat a medical condition. Whatever condition or purpose you choose to use CBD for can help determine what product will be the most effective for your needs.

Often, products might contain more of one specific cannabinoid with a special function. For example, CBN is a cannabinoid that helps with rest and sleep, making it a good option for those who have trouble in this area.

Understanding the many benefits of CBD can help you better determine the goods you wish to purchase. Many people take CBD for relief, rest, calmness, and so much more. However, it is important to remember that CBD isn’t going to give you a “high” effect because it doesn’t contain high levels of THC.

2. Only Buy Quality CBD Products

The key to buying quality CBD products is to find a quality brand to purchase from. One of the best ways to verify the quality of CBD products is to only purchase from companies that send their CBD off for third-party testing.

This is a key step in buying trusted CBD products because the industry is highly unregulated. Unethical CBD manufacturers can easily take advantage of customers by lying about the CBD content of their products. Third-party testing requires manufacturers to send samples of their products to independent labs to ensure accurate CBD levels as described by the product labels.

3. Understand Product Types

Manufacturers can make a variety of different CBD products. In some forms, CBD is easily consumed orally. With creams, you can apply CBD topically like a lotion. Here are some of the most common CBD products on the market:

  • Oil Tinctures: Tinctures are generally oil-based (usually fractionated coconut oil) extracts taken orally, often put directly under the tongue for fast-acting effects. Putting tinctures directly under the tongue helps the CBD’s effects work more quickly than other ingestion methods. Drops of the oil can also be mixed with a beverage like tea or a smoothie.
  • Topicals: Topical products like creams, salves, and lotions can be applied directly to the skin to provide relief to a specific area of the body.
  • Capsules & Softgels: CBD capsules and softgels are taken orally and can be highly concentrated to provide longer-lasting results.
  • Gummies and Edibles: CBD can be put into gummies or other food products that are ingested. benefits of these products are that they taste good, work pretty quickly, and are easy to take.

Determining the type of CBD product you want to use is a major decision. And as you are looking into that decision, you will want to also start looking at the amount of CBD in products and the recommended serving size.

4. Choose Your Must-Have Criteria

For some users, product type is the most important criteria. However, there are other aspects of CBD that you will want to consider, especially as a first timer. Concentration, taste, , ease of use, and price are all factors that might affect your willingness or ability to purchase a product.

Each person will have a different set of criteria for purchasing CBD products, so it is up to you to decide which factors are the most important for you.

5. Understand Laws and Regulations

First-time CBD buyers are sometimes concerned about the legality of purchasing CBD products. The association of CBD with marijuana can be enough to frighten some. However, there are laws in every state that guarantee high-quality, safe, and legal products.

To be considered legal, products should be derived from industrial hemp products that contain less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana. CBD itself is legal in all 50 states under the 2018 Farm Bill.
