3 things to look for when shopping for CBD oil

Let’s face it, shopping for CBD oil can be a daunting task. As the popularity of CBD becomes more widespread, there are increasingly more options for CBD oil on the market. The good news is that with this popularity comes an increase in available resources and therefore more quality products available to purchase. On the other hand, not all products are created equally. The confusion only deepens with the variety of brands and products, each claiming to be the best.

Start with these 3 guidelines to understand what makes a quality CBD product and to help you navigate your next CBD purchase.

Ultimately, the safety and success of a product is directly linked to the active ingredient, CBD, and where it originated from. Make sure that the company you purchase products from is transparent about the origin and processing of their CBD. Look for CBD derived from quality hemp, preferably organic and therefore free of pesticides.

CBD derived from the hemp plant is naturally high in CBD and has little to no traces of THC. When shopping for CBD oil for your dog, be sure to look for THC-free products to ensure that your dog will not experience a high. You can verify CBD content by asking to view a 3rd party lab test, provided by the company who created the products.

Keep in mind that a high amount of THC can be detrimental to your canine companion. It can cause undesirable symptoms of:

  • Staggering
  • Difficulty walking
  • Rocking back and forth
  • Twitching
  • Wide-open eyes
  • Drooling
  • Tense muscles
