CBD oil you can trust from King CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is the oil extracted from the resin glands of the cannabis flower, but unlike traditional cannabis products, CBD oil does not produce a euphoric high. This is because tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is behind the alterations of mind and body that people commonly associate with cannabis products, but (most) CBD oil products contain less than .3% THC in accordance to federal law.

Because CBD is highly reactive with the endocannabinoid system, the benefits of the cannabis plant can be achieved without the presence of THC, making it an excellent choice to treat and manage many medical diseases for both humans and pets alike. CBD oil is widely available throughout the U.S.--when derived from hemp and containing less than .3% THC, it is legal in all 50 states (more on that below). It can be taken directly or infused into topical ointments, tinctures, or capsules.

How to research and purchase CBD oil

There is a lack of transparency in the marketplace today due to a lack of cohesion between federal and state-mandated law. According to federal law, cannabis is illegal in all forms in the U.S. However, cannabis products containing .3% or less of THC are classified as hemp products, and as hemp is heavily regulated, this makes CBD oil derived from hemp legal in all 50 states. Additionally, thirty states have legalized marijuana either medically or recreationally, and seventeen have written CBD-specific laws.

Due to the nature of the marketplace, there are a few very important factors to keep in mind to ensure that you are procuring only the highest quality CBD products.

  • Extraction and sourcing: The highest quality CBD is extracted through a process known as supercritical CO2 extraction and/or ethanol. Since hemp production is heavily regulated, we advise CBD sourced from U.S.-grown hemp to ensure quality and consistency of product.
  • Third-party lab results: CBD oil companies want your business, so they should be willing to be transparent about their third-party lab results. Results are typically made available on the product packaging or company website. If you have trouble finding them, ask! If the company isn’t willing to share, you might be better off buying elsewhere.
  • “Whole Plant”/“Full Spectrum”: Manufacturers sometimes cut corners by using CBD isolates, but they are a cheaper material. You’d be better served purchasing products from manufacturers that use “Whole Plant” or “Full Spectrum” verbiage. Using the full plant allows all the compounds to work together for enhanced benefits.

  • King CBD is here to demystify the CBD oil market. Founder Matt began treating his dog, King, with CBD following a bladder cancer diagnosis, and soon the pair were taking CBD together daily. CBD has many benefits in treating human diseases, but dogs, cats, and other pets can reap the benefits as well.
