CBD Buyer Beware!

Please Be Aware You Don’t Want To Buy Your CBD products on Amazon, Wal-Mart, CVS, Or Other Big Box Stores … Here’s why-

A quick search for CBD oil on Amazon serves up more than 3,000 results, but the site’s selling guidelines prohibit the sale of products containing Cannabidiol!

This means the products that show up on Amazon when you search “CBD” are most likely made of hemp oil, sometimes called hemp seed oil, which is extracted by cold-pressing hemp seeds. It generally doesn’t contain or contains very little CBD.

If the product label says “hemp seed oil,” then this particular oil does not contain any CBD.

Hemp seed oil does have some benefits as a moisturizer when applied to the skin, similar to olive oil, but that’s about it.

Most of the products you see online or in stores are worthless for reducing, pain anxiety or insomnia.

Also, if the label says CBD or hemp oil, or hemp extract without specifying the amount of CBD, then this oil is very likely to contain scant quantities of CBD at best. Look for CBD oils that have about 10 to 20 milligrams of CBD per dose. A reliable company will have the lab results available for their products.

Questions to Ask Before Purchasing CBD Oil

Where was the hemp grown? And how was it grown? Be wary if the bottle simply states Asia or United States. You want to where, what state or region and that it was grown in organic soil.

Is the CBD full spectrum? This means the product is made from the whole plant. Yes, full spectrum CBD oils sometimes cost a little more, but they also provide more of the benefits of CBD than a CBD isolate.

Has the Product Been Tested by a 3rd Party Lab?

Is The CBD Third Party Tested For Purity And Safety?

The first thing to look for when purchasing any CBD product is if the product has been tested by a 3rd party laboratory. If it has been tested, then lab reports for that product should be readily available somewhere on the company’s website.

Without a lab report, you really have no way of confirming what’s in that product or if it’s safe to use. This is why it is extremely important to always look for a valid Certificate of Analysis (lab report) before you purchase any CBD product.

Does the Product Contain 0.3% THC or Less?

What ingredients are used in the product?

A good product only uses organic and all-natural ingredients, no additives or fillers.

About Essential Therapeutics CBD Products

Not all hemp is created equal, which means not all CBD is the same. When I develop or choose a product for my Essential Therapeutics line, I want to make sure that it stands up to the high quality, clinically tested track record, established over the last twenty years.

I believe that if you want to create the best products available, ones that ACTUALLY make a difference people can feel, and count on, excellence must be a priority at every stage.

With this idea as a benchmark, I seek out vendors and manufacturers to partner with who operate with the highest standards possible in the nutritional supplement space.

Its not enough that these products are “good,” they must work and work for very complicated patients-the folks who often have tried everything else with no luck-who are often sensitive to medications and or supplements, yet find they can take and do benefit from the Essential Therapeutic line of supplements.

After a year of research and six months of extensive due-diligence, I decided to partner with the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of hemp-derived phytocannabinoids in the U.S. This partner makes the raw hemp compounds and supplies my manufacturer, who bottles the Essential Therapeutics CBD products.

This innovative and thorough product development team ensures that every single ingredient used is meticulously sourced and lab tested.

Every Essential Therapeutics CBD purple label product, starts with natural-  proprietary strains, of organic hemp that are high in CBD. All of the hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in the United States.

Our farmer partners operate under strict guidelines to ensure that plants we use are the cleanest, organic rich nutrient dense plants available.

A proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2, a commonly used method of extraction, makes sure that hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved in the process.

The result? The highest quality, broad-spectrum hemp oil available.

While CBD on its own offers many benefits, a growing body of research has found that a broad-spectrum product leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the entourage effect.

THC Removal and Refining  100% THC Free

One of the most important steps in the process is to extract even the most-minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in cannabis that produces the “high” associated with the plant.

We use proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds still present in the oil. These compounds include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished.”

Third-Party Lab Testing Validates Every Batch Of Oil And Gel Caps Are 100% THC Free

Before we release any batch, it goes through rigorous third-party lab testing. We have set a new bar of testing in the industry. Every batch receives the most comprehensive testing available: microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), potency (ensuring what’s on the label is in the bottle), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) and pesticides (60 total).

And you can read the report of the product you are holding in your hand by simple clicking on the QR code on the bottle. Now that is transparency!

Every bottle of purple label Essential Therapeutic CBD includes a QR code linking to both the internal lab reports on the raw oil and the third-party testing on the finished product

You won’t see this level of commitment from other CBD products!

My partners and I are committed to LEADING the standard for quality and transparency in the CBD market!!

Proprietary Nano-emulsion Technology

Essential Therapeutics softgels require our oil to go through another processing step. The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into nano-sized emulsions. This makes it the most bioavailable broad spectrum CBD in the industry.

Nano-emulsion Makes Essential Therapeutics CBD Twice As Absorbable

Our competitors’ hemp oil particles are anywhere between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Our particles are around 25. This small size leads to much more effective absorption.

This nano-emulsion process can make our softgel formulas at least two times more bioavailable than oil-based products.

In addition to our nano-emulsion process, we use other proprietary technology to create the water-soluble hemp powder. This water-soluble format is also more bioavailable than standard hemp oil. Since the CBD is absorbed twice as well and more bioavailable, you can use less of the product, save money, and yet achieve the same level, if not more benefit as the products sold by most of our competitors. You can be assured that when you buy one of the purple label Essential Therapeutics CBD products you are getting the highest quality, pure, organic CBD product on the market today.

    Have just read your article on CBD & as per usual with anything you do I’m impressed.

    The problem I have is I live in Northern Ireland & for whatever reason the postage system adds a heavfty additional fee to anything I order from you! My beginners pack cost an extra $48 which has stopped me reording even though there are loads of items I want, the CBD oil in particular.

    I presume other people in the U.K have a similar problem?

    Do you know of any way to avoid this fee? It’s not as if the products are high risk etc…

    Would be great if I could order all the products I want without this substantial added expense.

    Thank you for listening.

      I agree with Andrea. Postage is a consideration for me as I live in Scotland. Also the two orders I have received I have not been impressed by the service of the carriers UPS. Any change would be welcome. Thanks and Happy Christmas.
