How Can I Be Sure My CBD Is Safe?

Is CBD Safe?

Ensuring that our customers receive the safest and highest quality products is our priority at Ohio CBD Guy. CBD is currently an unregulated space so it is critically important that you do your research and educate yourself on what to look for to make sure you get the right product.

In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know: whether CBD itself is safe, why you should carefully examine the brand you’re buying from, considerations to make if you believe your CBD may have expired, and more. We hope this information helps you as you enjoy the many benefits of CBD!

Is CBD Safe?

Yes! All mammals have an Endocannabinoid System, a part of our central nervous system that regulates how we respond to stress, anxiety, pain, inflammation, sleep, and so much more. Our CB1 and CB2 receptors interact with the endocannabinoids our bodies produce naturally and the phytocannabinoids found in cannabis such as CBD and THC. This is why CBD has helped me and so many of my family and customers!

CBD is a non-intoxicating compound found in Cannabis. Hemp and Marijuana are both Cannabis. THC can be intoxicating at higher levels but hemp derived Full Spectrum CBD products can only legally contain 0.3% THC. It should not have any intoxicating effect at that level. 

Know What’s In The Products You’re Buying

Transparency and traceability is so important when shopping for CBD products. You should only purchase products that are third party lab tested and have a Certificate of Analysis easily accessible. The COA will show how much CBD, THC, and other Cannabinoids are in the product, terpene profile and content, and show that it is free from any pesticides, heavy metals, or toxic chemicals. We only work with third-party sellers who offer lab test results on their website.

What About Expired CBD?

Most quality CBD companies will put an expiration date on their products. While expired CBD products are generally safe to consume, the potency will potentially weaken over time.
