If you live in the United States, there are most likely countless CBD products available at your local smoke shop, a couple generic types at your bigger chain gas stations, and nowawadays they even have an aisle end-cap in-store at CVS Pharmacy. Since CBD became federally legal in 2018, the floodgates have opened and everyone is trying to get a piece of the pie. As all of these products show up, many store owners and employees don’t even know exactly what they’re selling. How to identify high-quality CBD products on your own is extremely important and it all starts at the source.
Where the product came from, how it was grown, the process and standards utilized for extraction, all of these things comprise each product that consumers ultimately see and use. Respect My Region’s high-quality CBD represents products that are consciously-crafted with patients at the forefront of the experience.
It’s important to know what you’re buying, and what might be the most effective product for you. There are many factors that go into what makes a CBD product “good,” and they vary depending on the product.
Using our eight new full-spectrum CBD products as examples, we can categorically break down what defines high-quality CBD products.
CBD gummies are one of the most in-demand CBD products that you can never consistently find. Many of the options readily available are made with gelatin or use other unnatural ingredients. A high-quality CBD gummy should be vegan, gluten-free, and tasty, using ingredients that are clean, safe, and sourced sustainably if possible.
For those looking for the entourage effect, full-spectrum CBD might be more effective than CBD isolate. Our gummies check off every single box: vegan, gluten-free, full-spectrum, and tasty. They come in three delicious flavors with 10mg of CBD per gummy and 100mg of CBD per container—Mango, Mango Chili Lime, and Melonade w/ Melatonin.
CBD tinctures come in a lot of different shapes, sizes, and strengths. We personally believe that the stronger the tincture, the better. Anything below 500mg of CBD might not provide as many anti-inflammatory effects which is why all of our high-quality CBD hemp tinctures are formulated with 1000mg of full-spectrum hemp oil that encourages the entourage effect.
Each blend is made with additional essential oils to further tap into the holistic benefits of herbalism. Whether you’re looking to boost, refresh, or chill out your day, our 1000mg full-spectrum CBD tinctures might hit the spot.
The obvious issue with CBD pre-rolls is the flower is typically not that consistent. The same pre-roll you bought before might taste different the next time you get it, and it may be more or less potent. Many cigarette smokers are looking for an alternative, and one that doesn’t taste terrible. Our high-quality CBD pre-rolls come from Wisconsin-grown hemp flower that’s rich in phytocannabinoids and grown in-house by our partner, M Six Labs.
Each tube comes with two high CBD pre-rolls that contain .7 grams of flower with up to 15% CBD. Our CBD pre-rolls are always filled with some of the most potent and flavorful hemp flower available. These are the kinds of pre-rolls that you can smoke at any time of the day to find relief from something that actually tastes earthy and good.
The big thing with high-quality CBD topicals is that they often utilize CBD isolate over full-spectrum. The additional cannabinoids that present in a full-spectrum blend may be more beneficial for relieving pain. Our Pain Relief Roll-On Stick might be your new favorite post-workout tool. This roll-on stick cools, then heats, using 500mg of CBD, which might penetrate deeper into the muscles.
Our high-quality hemp distillate extract starts from premium hemp plants that come together to create an amazing full-spectrum product. The extract targets neurons and receptors for stress and tension and may give the user a calmer, clearer, more relaxed state of mind.
Certificate of Analysis (COA)
A tell-tale sign of a high-quality CBD product will be the availability of its COA, or Certificate of Analysis. If a company is going out of their way to carry out extensive third-party testing on their products, it’s a good sign that they pay attention to the details. If all of the ingredients, nutritional facts, and a COA aren’t listed, how can you trust what you’re consuming?
Respect My Region’s CBD products have COA stickers on each and every one so customers can easily see the test results. We want our customers to readily be able to see exactly how potent our products are.
Where Can I Buy CBD Products That Are Actually Good?
This is possibly the biggest issue for anyone considering CBD products for consistent medicinal or recreational use. You never know when your local shop is going to run out, and there’s no guaranteeing that they’ll immediately re-stock.
Respect My Region has eliminated this issue by offering all of our eight full-spectrum CBD products online for drop-shipping directly from our partner, M Six Labs, in Wisconsin. They cultivate all of the hemp that they extract for their small-batch runs of our exclusive product line in-house. We found the perfect partner that can ensure total supply-chain control and artisanal quality every time.
