Jules Hunt is a wellness blogger from New York. Two months ago, the 26-year-old writer tried her first dose of cannabidiol (CBD) oil, which she has been taking once daily ever since. In an interview with CBS This Morning, Hunt shared how the physician-recommended product helped ease her stomach problems and her anxiety stemming from these health issues.
“I think you start to feel it a bit over time and then you realize, ‘Oh, wow, I slept a lot better that evening. I didn’t wake up in a panic thinking about my long to-do list for the next day,’” Hunt said when asked how she felt after first using it.
Hunt is just one of the millions of people who have found comfort in using the cannabis-derived substance, dubbed as a miracle compound, to ease their problems whether in physical or mental health.
Because CBD oil has been seeing a growing consumer base in recent years, several people have taken advantage of its popularity and started selling these products. CBD sellers have spawned online.
As a CBD user, Hunt, however, advised that consumers who want to try CBD should avoid buying just any product on the market that claims to contain the cannabis compound.
This is a lesson everyone should learn from last year when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found four companies lying when they labeled and marketed their products as having a certain level of CBD among its ingredients. US FDA tests of these products revealed that they do not have the CBD levels that they claimed to contain.
“You want to talk to your doctor who can recommend the cleanest forms out there,” Hunt said, adding that shoppers themselves should do their own research when finding CBD products you can trust the most.
Aside from losing your money’s worth when you buy a CBD product that has false claims in its content, it may not yield the expected results. For instance, when the product is used to ease seizures of people suffering from epilepsy, it could be ineffective, and patients would not receive the consistent results. Mislabeled products may also contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the other rich chemical in cannabis plants, which could be intoxicating at a dangerous level, according to Time.
One way of knowing fraudulent CBD sellers is when they are secretive about their supply chain. In contrary, legitimate manufacturers provide details where their CBD is sourced.
The firm ensures that their CBD is extracted from non-GMO organically-grown hemp plants cultivated in farms from Kentucky, Colorado, and Scandinavia. These plants are manually selected with careful precision, then gently harvested and dried under the most optimal conditions.
The Florida-based firm sells a wide selection of cannabinoids and natural hemp derivatives through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Diamond CBD, which produces one of the highest-quality CBD hemp extracts in the industry through continuous research and development.
The company is joined by a team of chemists and scientists who are driven to producing the finest and purest CBD oil. The firm adopts the so-called Supercritical CO2 Extraction process, which is the most gentle approach to extract high-quality CBD from hemp plants while ensuring that its natural properties are not compromised.
Their work is put to the test when Diamond CBD’s products were brought to the highly-reputable and 100% independent Drug Detection Laboratories, Inc. Sure enough, results found the firm’s products to be free of any illicit drug while its CBD is sourced from hemp.
The result of this extensive research is Diamond CBD’s various product lines that range from flavored gummies, drinks, juices, vape pens, vape additives, pet products, and CBD oil itself, among others. All products are legal across the U.S., sold at more than 10,000 retail stores today.
With the popularity CBD is gaining today across the globe, it would be useful to do some research on what factors to consider when shopping for the best and most honest CBD oil in the market. And Diamond CBD should be at the top of your to-buy list.
