[2] Let's Simplify

CBD products behave much like vitamins in the human body, and if you begin to think of CBD products in the same manner as you do vitamins then things begin to clear up a good bit.

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

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

CBD products work the same way.

You can buy a product that contains only the cannabinoid CBD and nothing else, or you can buy a product that contains many cannabinoids just like you would with a multi-vitamin.

Which brings up a major problem - CBD products don't have a handy and descriptive label like vitamins do.  We should fix that.


Which leaves the consumer stuck trying to determine if a CBD product contains only the CBD cannabinoid, or multiple cannabinoids.  CBD producers rarely furnish a label to help you out.

In fact, most producers of CBD products don't want you to know what is in their products.  They don't want you to know because their products are simply not very good.  On the other hand, the best producers of CBD products will provide complete product information that helps the consumer understand what they are getting when they buy the product.

If you don't see full 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.
