With the legalization of cannabis in many states, people are curious about what they are getting. CBD is one of the most popular products for sale on the market today, but there is a lot of confusion on how potency is measured. In this blog post, we will discuss how CBD potency is measured and why it’s important to know that when you’re purchasing your product!
1. What is CBD and why do we care about its potency ?
Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD is a compound that’s been recorded in medical literature for its ability to help with many health issues. It is often used by people who have epilepsy and other conditions where traditional medication doesn’t work well! Since it does not make you feel “high” like THC products do, it has become very popular in recent years.
Strength of CBD products is measured through the amount of CBD it contains and how much THC content there is compared to that (THC counteracts some effects of having too much CBD) . For example, a product could be labeled as containing 100mgs per bottle but if we look closely at its label we may find that it contains only 20mgs of CBD and the remaining 80 is from THC. As a result, this product would have very little medicinal value to someone who uses CBD for its health benefits!
When looking for your favorite strain or CBD oil, always look at how potent they are by measuring both their level of potency (how much CBD is in your product) and their THC content (the amount of cannabis it contains).
2. The difference between “full spectrum” and “isolate” products
There are two main types of CBD products out there, full spectrum and isolate. Full Spectrum is when the product contains all other compounds found in cannabis besides just CBD (like THC) . Isolate is made up only of CBD without any additional ingredients.
Be very careful about what you purchase if it’s not labeled! You cannot depend on how the product looks to tell you what it contains. Some companies may label their products in a way that makes them look like they have more CBD in them than they actually do, so always double check the amount of cannabidiol your product has by looking at its cannabinoid profile!
The difference is very important because if someone takes pure isolate and doesn’t get the desired effects from it they might think that CBD doesn’t work. This is not true because everyone’s body reacts differently to different types of medication and you should always understand how your body works before making a decision on what kind of cannabis product will work best for you!
Always make sure to first consult with an expert in medical marijuana if you’re trying to use CBD for the first time. They will be able to help you choose a product that best fits your needs and is compatible with any conditions or symptoms you may have!
3. Why knowing the potency of your product matters
It is so important to know what you’re getting into when it comes to CBD products because there are many misconceptions surrounding its use and how potent it can be.
Many people believe that CBD does not have any side effects which isn’t true! Everyone’s body reacts differently, just like with all medications in the world. There could also be other compounds in CBD products that may interfere with medication you’re currently taking.
So for this reason it is very important to not only know how much cannabidiol your product has but also if there are other ingredients like THC and what the levels of those might be! This way, you can ensure that no matter which cannabis product you choose it will be the right one for you and that it will work best.
It is also important to keep in mind that CBD products can take a while before they start working. It’s not like taking an Advil which starts alleviating symptoms almost immediately, so always be patient with yourself and your new medication if using cbd oil or other cannabis product.
4. How to determine the CBD content in a product
This is a very important topic because CBD content in products can be different depending on the way they are made. There are three main forms of CBD that you can buy:
CBD powders, CBD Isolates and Full Spectrum plants . They all have their own benefits when it comes to quality but also how much cannabidiol they will be able to give you.
CBD powders are made up of the entire hemp plant (which is usually ground into a fine powder).
CBD Isolates, on the other hand, only contain pure cannabidiol without any additional ingredients.
Full Spectrum plants however do not just include CBD but also have some levels of THC and CBN.
The best way to find out how much CBD is in your product and what its cannabinoid profile looks like, you should always look at the label! That said, it’s important that all cannabis products have accurate labels because THC content can change depending on many factors such as growing conditions and time of harvest so not every plant will contain the same amount of THC.
In conclusion , it is very important to keep in mind that not all CBD products are created equal and just because one person got great results from using cbd doesn’t mean you will too.
It’s also crucial to know what kind of cannabis product you’re buying, how much cannabidiol it has and if there are other ingredients like THC! This way you can be sure that your medication will work the best and won’t interfere with any other medications or conditions.
Remember to always consult an expert in medical marijuana before using CBD products for the first time so they can help you choose a product that’s right for you!
As we mentioned earlier, it is important to know what kind of cannabis product you’re buying and how much cannabidiol it has. CBD content in products can vary depending on the way they are made so always look at the label.
