4 Ways to Find Quality Broad-Spectrum CBD Products
In today's unregulated CBD market, finding the best product can prove to be difficult. Many companies out there scam consumers. With the increased popularity of CBD, new merchants and brands are popping up everywhere; So how do you decide which products are best? We are here to help! Remember – not all hemp is created equal.
Here’s a how-to on finding quality broad-spectrum products:
1. Determine whether the product is broad-spectrum or full spectrum.
Let’s define the difference between broad-spectrum and full spectrum CBD products:
Broad-spectrum means the THC has been removed from the products during the extraction method. True broad-spectrum products will have zero THC. Broad-spectrum products allow individuals who cannot have trace amounts of THC detected in their systems, allowing its consumer to experience all the benefits without the intoxicating effects. Ergo Hemp Co. provides quality broad-spectrum products that are perfect for those working in law enforcement and the military as well as those who want to stray away from the stigma associated with cannabis.
Full spectrum means the product contains all cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant species including both CBD and THC, the ‘intoxicating’ cannabinoid.
Reminder – Some companies will say their products are full spectrum and have no THC. This is a contradiction. Full spectrum products should contain THC so be wary of these companies!
2. Check for 3rd party lab results.
The company should be able to provide its consumers with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA). The CoA tells you what is and what is not in the product you are consuming. This includes testing information on pesticides, microbiological and residual solvents. These tests also check for mold, bacteria, carbon dioxide and other harmful chemicals/pathogen we don’t want to consume!
And, of course, these tests show the percentage of cannabinoids. Companies claiming to have broad-spectrum CBD products should have a CoA that shows there is NO THC detected. Companies that claim they have full-spectrum CBD products should have a CoA that detects THC.
Transparent companies will have their CoA posted on their website and will send you a copy upon request! Ergo Hemp Co. is one of those companies. Chromatography testing and 3rd party batch testing ensures accurate levels of phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plants) and confirms the absence of THC in our products!
3. Ask where the hemp was sourced.
The source of your hemp matters! Go with hemp that is organically grown in the U.S., as U.S. farmers are required to get certified by state departments of agriculture. Not only is it a better product for you and loved ones, but also supports the U.S. economy.
Ergo Hemp Co. sources organic hemp from a farm in Colorado!
4. Ask about the extraction method.
There are several extraction methods used through the industry. Ergo Hemp Co.’s products are extracted via high quality ethanol and supercritical CO2. The proprietary high CBD, low THC (which is later removed), and high terpene plant genetics lead to high-quality extract with no external additives. Closed and cold processes are used to preserve terpenes and other desired compounds.
Using a Nano emulsion formula, Ergo Hemp Co.’s products are developed to improve the delivery of active ingredients. Nano emulsions are Nano sized emulsions - a special type of mixture made by combining two liquids that normally don't mix. Nano emulsion leads to a much larger surface area of the hemp oil droplets leading to much higher absorption in the bloodstream. This means your body absorbs more CBD!
