Let's Simplify

If you think of CBD products in the same manner as you do vitamins things begin to clear up a good bit.

At the store you may buy individual vitamins such as Vitamin B, or C, etc.

On the other hand, you also have the option to buy a multi-vitamin.

CBD products are similar in that you can buy products that contain only the single cannabinoid CBD and nothing else.

Optionally, you can also buy products that contain many cannabinoids - these would be similar to a multi-vitamin.

As a consumer you must discover if a CBD product contains only the CBD cannabinoid, or multiple cannabinoids.  Rarely will a label be provided to help you out.

The very best producers of CBD products will make that distinction for you and clearly state the contents right on the label, or alternately provide the laboratory test results for you to see for yourself.

If you don't see either type of product information for a CBD product - run.


As a side note, product labels don't always provide the space required to list all the contents clearly.

In that case, look to see if the manufacturer provides laboratory test results for you to download and review.  If they do not provide lab results for the whole world to see - run.

Some laboratories provide a graph such as this.

Others take more of a spreadsheet approach:


It is up to you to decipher the results in whatever form they are delivered.

In a perfect world the results would resemble the label we see on vitamin products that make the contents clear as day.
