Chances are by now you've heard someone sing to you the praises of Hemp Oil, or CBD. As one of Salt Lake City's founding suppliers of high-quality Hemp Oil, we'd like to give you three things to consider before you buy your first bottle or restock on your current fave.
1. Brand Matters
Like most herbal products, not all are created equal.
Packaging can be incredibly hazy and sometimes downright misleading when it comes to CBD. Manufacturers are not necessarily required to state things in a way that makes sense to most of us, so it can be easy to buy into a product that is far from superior. Here in the shop, when people talk about having poor experiences with CBD, we can almost always trace it back to the maker they used. We give them something better and they finally get the results they were looking for.
As we looked at picking up CBD, we tested over 25 brands from across the USA and Canada. 4 made the cut. These brands are exemplary at sourcing ethically grown hemp plants, extracting them into oil, and packaging them in user-friendly ways.
2. The Plants Matter
Did you know that many of the fibers we rely on come from the hemp plant? Industrial hemp is the course of many low-impact fiber goods from clothing to paper- but it's not what we want to work with when making CBD. Many of the 'smoke shop' brands of CBD are made by extracting the poor quality CBD isolates from industrial hemp. We only work with makers who use therapeutic-grade varieties of hemp that have a whole array of beneficial constituents.
3. The Seller Matters
While it's easy to pop into a smoke shop or grocery store to pick up CBD, the amount of information, personal connection to the product, and tailored information for your use simple won't be there. It makes sense to work with clinical herbalists to explore CBD since it's a plant we've worked with for ages. If you need more in-depth information or are looking for the right CBD product for who you are as an individual, stop in and we'll be happy to help!
