To try to balance up the Isolate, other companies infuse their CBD preparations with terpenes and other cannabinoids which does go part of the way to balance the Isolate. However, the great majority of CBD aficionados swear by the organically produced whole plant paste and much prefer it to the highly processed Isolate, even with the addition of whole plant extracts. The problem is that companies are often not transparent concerning their product labels and online descriptions.
While not lying, they will not directly tell you that their CBD products are from Isolate. They will also not tell you if they are manufacturing isolate or paste from Industrial Hemp. If they are not doing these things then they will certainly advertise the fact. It is important to know where and how products are sourced, not just the types of Cannabis used, in order to get a full picture of what is involved. CBD sourced from China has been flagged up as potentially dangerous because a lot of their hemp is grown in fields irrigated by run-off from local mines. This may or may not be a problem for all we know. But the consumer is wise to exercise caution.
Best CBD Products in the market
There are still companies out there who passionately believe in the unadulterated whole plant product and strive to provide high quality organic CBD oil from whole plant extract, sourced from clean locations. They are a minority and have to be carefully sifted from the rest. At face value, they are unlikely to be companies with a huge, exhaustive array of products (which they have likely sourced from other companies and stuck their own labels on) and sell for suspiciously low prices. They are likely not making huge profits and are having to walk a tight line to stay within the precincts of the law so they do not tend to be the lowest priced (quality costs), nor do they sell at the highest prices. They do not tend to plough their hard earned profit into the most beautiful packaging. These companies are in the CBD business for altruistic reasons and only count on achieving realistic profits. The industry may have attracted its fair share of profit hungry charletons.
For instance: In recent years the FDA rounded up no fewer than 8 online companies claiming to sell CBD oil which was proved to have no CBD content in it at all! An increasingly rigorous transparency and code of conduct is being enforced by Trading Standards now but that does not completely protect the consumer against sub standard products. On the positive side, all things Hemp does also tend to attract individuals with a genuine commitment to the health and welfare of mankind and the planet and a passionate belief in supplying a safe, high quality product. Look for companies you can actually talk to and don’t be afraid to ask questions until you get all the answers you need. A good CBD supplier should be able to tell you about the Cannabis and where it comes from, how it is prepared and be able to show you comprehensive lab reports detailing the contents of their products, what they are actually made up of and the amounts. Reliable companies will often show these reports plainly on their web sites. Don’t be fooled by marketing hype. Be aware of what is not said as well as what is stated with respect to the products advertised. When you find a company with high moral objectives and selling products that work for you, you will be glad you made the effort!
