With so many companies vying for your attention, it can be hard to figure out how to choose a CBD Oil that delivers. But knowing what to look for in CBD Oil can help you find a quality product – and even better, a quality company from which to buy your wellness products. Here are five aspects to look for when buying CBD Oil.
How To Choose A CBD Oil
Not all Hemp is created equal, so it’s important to know where and how your CBD was sourced. While more companies have started sourcing exclusively from the U.S., there are still a select few that rely on other countries for their Hemp plants. The lack of regulation on these foreign crops can potentially lead to non-compliant products.
Generally, you should choose a CBD Oil that was sourced from American farms due to the rigorous standards implemented by the USDA. The 2018 Farm Bill outlined how farmers could legally grow Industrial Hemp: by presenting a proposal that covered how they would test their land, check the THC concentration of their plants and dispose of faulty crops. Farmers who did not meet these standards would be denied a license to grow Industrial Hemp by the USDA.
By ensuring that Industrial Hemp crops themselves contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight – the federal legal limit – it follows that the resulting Hemp-derived CBD products will also fall within legal standards.
If a company is secretive about its sourcing, then consider it a red flag. At Hemp Bombs, we openly partner with licensed American farmers to source our premium Industrial Hemp. Our raw CBD comes with a full panel Certificate of Analysis (COA) to ensure that it contains less than 0.3% THC and is free of mycotoxins, pesticides and heavy metals. We source from the best so that we can create the best.
If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, which is the case when it comes to manufacturing CBD products. While it’s not required that companies produce their inventory in-house, it allows for an in-depth quality control process that you cannot get with outsourcing.
It’s likely that a company won’t tell you when they’ve outsourced their manufacturing, but they will make it clear if they’ve manufactured their products on-site, as is the case with Hemp Bombs. We’re proud to handle our products from seed to sale because we know it’s the best way to deliver quality to our consumers. From product formulation and stability testing to labeling and shipping, we take a hands-on approach so we can consistently manufacture superior CBD Oil.
Third-Party Lab Testing
Lab testing is one of the most important things on the list of what to look for in CBD Oil. However, it’s not enough just to lab test in-house. Companies should partner with third-party labs for unbiased test results. Don’t be fooled – even some of the most popular CBD companies do not implement these independent lab tests, so do your research.
Even further, companies should conduct full-panel lab tests that go beyond the scope of just CBD concentration. Full-panel lab tests show a number of aspects not found in a basic test:
- CBD concentration
- The presence of terpenes and other cannabinoids
- The active THC levels (should display as ND or under 0.3%)
- Mycotoxins, pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, unwanted additives, etc.
Then, the most reputable companies will make these results easily accessible to you, whether it’s on a dedicated web page, the product page or from a QR code on the product label.
If you’ve picked up a Hemp Bombs product or read our website, then you know we live by our commitment to thorough testing both on-site and through ISO-certified, independent labs. We conduct raw material testing, in-process checks and finished goods verification before finally sending each batch of products off for unbiased confirmation.
Accurate Labeling and Marketing
As it stands, CBD is wildly unregulated – a fact that many companies will use to their advantage. At almost every corner of the internet, there are mislabeled products and unsupported claims. Fortunately, the FDA does a good job of curbing these actions by issuing warning letters to such companies.
But how can you determine for yourself which companies are being honest and truthful with their products? Research. As mentioned before, updated lab tests confirm that what’s on the label matches what’s in the bottle. And when it comes to claims, you should always be cautious with companies that say their products can heal, treat or cure any disease or ailment. As always, consult with a physician before adding new products to your daily routine.
More Value to You
CBD Oil is a natural wellness product intended to help you lead a better and more positive lifestyle. When it comes time to choose a CBD Oil, try to find a company that delivers more value instead of one that is just in the business for a quick buck. Companies that welcome your feedback and respond with formulation updates, new flavors and higher potencies, are the ones that aim to serve you.

Our customer service team is always here to answer your questions, and we strive to keep you up to date on industry changes. We know that an informed customer is the best way to keep the industry moving forward, while also weeding out the bad companies.
