The CBD Trend
The UK CBD market is growing at an exponential rate and it’s getting complicated to know who to trust when it comes to buying, especially if you’re a first time buyer. When it comes to buying CBD, don’t just google “CBD” and click on the first link, there are so do’s and a lot more don’ts. Let us walk you through it.
Legal status (CBD vs THC)
CBD is legal in the UK, as long as it’s extracted strictly from hemp and does not contain any THC. Many people think that 0.2% of THC is allowed when in reality THC is completely illegal in the UK.
Hemp Oil vs Hemp Seed Oil
As said previously, when you’re buying CBD in the UK, you have to make sure it comes from hemp.
Buying online without much knowledge could lead you to places like Amazon, where instead of buying CBD hemp oil, you may end up buying hemp seed oil. Yes, they sound like the same thing but they’re not, hemp seed oil has zero CBD in it. Hemp seeds sure are full of benefits, but you won’t get any of the results you’re expecting from CBD. This results in people thinking that CBD doesn’t do anything when they didn’t have any CBD in the first place.
Many people testify about their bad experiences to keep you from making the same mistake.
It’s actually very easy for Amazon sellers to fool customers through the use of tags like “CBD” or “CBD oil” even though it doesn’t appear in the name of the product.
Where's the Good Stuff?
Since the market in the UK is still new and blooming, it can be difficult to find a reliable retailer you’ll be able to come back to for your future purchases.
Make sure you shop somewhere or on a website where the brands and products are curated and have a good reputation. Making research is also essential, learn more about what to look for in a quality product, what kind of price you should be expecting. Read as many reviews as you can even though in this day and age it has become difficult to know who you can trust. If you’re at a physical shop, ask as many questions as you want. There’s nothing wrong with being too demanding. If you’re shopping online, try to find a website where it’s easy to communicate with the retailer, whether it’s via a live chat or e-mail. Essentially, look for a retailer that’s as transparent as possible.
