Clear Labels: Look for labels showing the quantity and ratio of cannabis compounds CBD, THC, and/or THCa per dose.
Lab Testing: Look for products that are tested for consistency, and verified as free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants.
Quality Ingredients: Select products with quality ingredients. AVOID corn syrup, GMOs, transfats, or artificial additives.
Safe Extraction: AVOID products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Solvent residues are especially dangerous for immune-compromised patients. Look for products that entail a safer method of extraction like supercritical CO2.
Cannabis vs Industrial Hemp?: Compared to whole plant cannabis, industrial hemp is low in cannabinoid content. A huge amount of industrial hemp is required to extract a small amount of CBD, raising the risk of contaminants because hemp, a bioaccumulator, draws toxins and heavy metals from soil. The robust terpene profile of whole plant cannabis also enhances the therapeutic benefits of CBD, THC and THCa. NOTE: New genetics of hemp are available that offer a safe solution for topical products or for dietary supplement by users with healthy immune systems. Source: Project CBD
