11 Aug Can I Trust CBD?
CBD is popping up everywhere, and the #1 question everyone is asking is, “Can I trust CBD?” We want to help guide you through your own personal CBD journey, and the first step to that is helping you discover why you can trust Modern Alchemy’s CBD. Let’s get started with the Basics.
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis is a diverse plant that has many strains and varieties, including hemp and marijuana. Marijuana is any cannabis plant with a large amount (more than 0.3%) of THC. THC is the psychoactive component of the Marijuana plant that gets most users stoned.Meanwhile, Hemp is classified as containing under 0.3% of THC – meaning CBD provides the main benefits from the hemp plant with no extra side effects. Understanding the distinct difference in the chemical make-up of Marijuana and Hemp is the best way to begin to understand how CBD works.
These two different Cannabis Strains even look different.
Is CBD Legal?
Another big question everyone is asking is Is CBD even legal? The short answer is yes. CBD is legal as long as it is hemp derived and contains under 0.3 percent of THC. This is thanks to the 2018 United States Farm Bill. While CBD is legal, that does not mean that all CBD companies are following the laws. Anyone consuming or considering CBD should do their research prior to purchasing.
Here are 3 things to find out before making your CBD purchase:
- Ensure the manufacturer controls the process from farm to shelf and uses high quality materials to start with.
- Ask if they do their own extracting, and if they don’t who does it for them?
- Request batch testing, or a Certificate of Analysis, to make sure there are no traces of THC, contaminants, toxins, heavy metals, etc.
What is a Certificate of Analysis?
C of A’s act like a resume for your desired CBD product. They indicate everything about that specific product to ensure you are spending your hard-earned money on quality CBD. Modern Alchemy Products have C of A’s available online because we believe in full transparency with our consumers.
