What to Look for When Buying CBD

CBD is all the rage it seems, with businesses popping up left and right—all claiming they have the best CBD in town. You may have even seen CBD being sold at your local gas station. With all of this CBD everywhere you turn, the hemp experts at Verda Hemp are here to guide you toward the right places. Here are some things to look for when buying CBD:

  • Reputable Source – As with any new product, you always need to do your research! You want to make sure the CBD you’re buying is not only effective, but is safe for you to put into or onto your body.
  • COA – A COA, or certificate of analysis, helps guarantee the quality of a CBD product by providing third-party laboratory testing. A CBD company that provides COAs has established some credibility and proved that they are honest and trustworthy. Check out an example of what a COA should look like, featuring our hemp smokes
  • List of Ingredients – You always want to know exactly what’s in your product, especially in cases of allergies and irritants. Always look for clear labeling on the outer packaging or on the product itself.
  • CBD:THC Ratio – Depending on your preferences, you may want CBD on its own, or perhaps you’re looking for a little bit of that THC boost included in your product. Here are some of the terms to look out for:
      • CBD isolate: Has no THC present, just pure CBD. 
      • Broad-spectrum: Includes terpenes and other cannabinoids, in addition to CBD.
      • Full-spectrum: Includes terpenes, other cannabinoids, CBD, and a small amount of THC. Many people specifically look for this combination of compounds with the idea that they work together to enhance the effects of the CBD and provide a noticeably distinct experience.

Our final tip: Always ask questions if you are unsure! A trustworthy CBD provider should be able to answer any question and tell you all about the products they are selling. As always, you can check in with the staff at Verda Hemp with any questions related to hemp and CBD products.

After seeing the multiple benefits that a wide variety of people have enjoyed from this plant, founders Vince Williamson and Derek Shields were moved to learn more about how they could get involved. With professional experience in contracting, Vince used his resources to obtain the proper permits in the community to find local farmers, farm land, and begin the process. Derek has been growing hemp and working with CBD since 2012. While working with different strains, he found that each one, with its ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes, has it’s own unique healing properties. This is why Verda cultivates a variety of strains to benefit a wide range of symptoms. After suffering from a shoulder injury resulting in a replacement surgery, Vince made the decision to do without prescription pain medication and found that CBD was a successful replacement. He experienced a pain-free healing process during a time that was understood to be a relatively difficult recovery. Post-recovery, Vince’s continued testimony includes pain relief in several pain areas due to previous sports injuries. Both Vince and Derek are inspired to share the healing benefits, profitability, and culture of CBD/Hemp oil through Verda.

Our Mission & Vision

Ultimately, we want to help! Our mission began by educating farmers to grow a profitable and organic CBD crop. We want to empower farmers to grow this crop while bringing prosperity and income back to the agricultural communities in America and directly to the individual farmer. As we are facilitating farmers on how to make money growing the nation’s newest, most lucrative cash crop- we are focused on communication, understanding, and providing products to CBD users. Our vision is to allow farmers to produce CBD while educating the community and the country on the benefits of CBD in the production, the sale, and the usage.

Defining Hemp

Hemp is a natural compound that is compatible with the endocannabinoid system in the human brain. Hemp can provide medicinal benefits without the reverse side effects we experience through prescription drugs. Acting as a natural healer, hemp may be used to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety, act as a sleep and relaxation aid, and provide relief as an anti-inflammatory.
