The most important parameter when choosing a CBD oil should always be the quality, selecting a reputable and reliable brand: the manufacturer must be able to provide recent analyzes and performed by an independent laboratory on the composition of its CBD oil.
It is indeed unfortunately easy for some unscrupulous manufacturers to offer products that do not have the rate of CBD announced on the label. Beware of CBD products sold at prices that are significantly lower than other products containing a similar amount of CBD: this is most likely a scam. It is also essential that the THC content of CBD oil is well below the legal limit of 0.2%. Otherwise, this product would not be authorized and could cause some psychotropic effects characteristic of THC, such as drunkenness or euphoria.
The levels of CBD and THC cannabinoids are not the only factors to take into account to ensure the good quality of a CBD oil. The manufacturer must also follow strict procedures during the production of oil to ensure the absence of microbes, fungi or pathogenic bacteria by microbiological tests carried out in the laboratory.
As the hemp plant has the particularity of easily accumulating certain heavy metals within its biomass, it is also essential to choose a brand of CBD oil that can guarantee that these heavy metals are not concentrated in the final product. once with the help of recent laboratory analyzes. The best CBD manufacturers use hemp grown in fields whose soil is carefully selected for its low levels of heavy metals and other contaminants .
Of course, the hemp used for the extraction of CBD must be grown in a 100% organic way in Europe , to avoid any trace of insecticide, fungicide and other pesticides in the final product. Some manufacturers make the wrong choice to use CBD imported from Asia, to reduce the price at the expense of quality: these products of dubious origin will be avoided.
Finally, it is important to choose a CBD oil that also contains the other cannabinoids in trace form as well as the terpenes (aromatic molecules) of the hemp plant, these different molecules acting in natural synergy to improve the efficiency of CBD , a action known as the effect of the entourage.
In order to meet these numerous quality criteria, we have chosen to offer on CannaMed.fr CBD oil manufactured in Switzerland by the Cibdol company following very rigorous procedures.
