There is no doubt that CBD has become one of the hottest trends around. You see it popping up at pharmacies, major retailers, personal care and beauty stores everywhere. CBD’s popularity is ramping up and with the lack of clear oversight by regulatory agencies, it has created untrustworthy CBD vendors who are producing products that are questionable in both content and quality. All this has led to everyone asking “How to Buy CBD?”
At Zova, we believe in what CBD can do for the human body. That’s why our products are all pharmacist formulated, and manufactured with the highest standards.
Here are 5 key questions you should ask before buying CBD to ensure you’re getting a safe, trustworthy product.
One of the first signs towards a trustworthy CBD brand is that they test their CBD products with a third-party lab, and the results are easily accessible. The test results will verify the statements on the product packaging are accurate. If a CBD brand you’re considering does not have third-party testing, or refuses to show their results, you should look for a different CBD supplier.
Zova’s CBD products are all third-party lab tested, with results posted online here. If you already own a Zova CBD product, you can easily scan the QR code located both on your box or product label.
All CBD starts from the hemp plant that it’s extracted from. So it’s vital that you know where this hemp is grown. Under the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act, otherwise known as the 2018 Farm Bill, only hemp grown in the United States under the guidelines of the USDA Farm Bill is legal. As you start to look into other CBD companies, you’ll find that their hemp is being imported from countries outside of the United States, meaning it is not going through the strict farming guidelines, and is likely contaminated with heavy metals and other unhealthy chemicals.
We also suggest that when you’re looking into where hemp is cultivated, to verify that they are US Hemp Authority Certified. US Hemp Authority Certified farms follow the strict guidelines outlined by the US Hemp Authority, and have passed third-party audits on their farms and farming practices.
At Zova, all of our hemp is grown by Great Lakes Cultivars, our company’s own farming division. Great Lakes Cultivars utilizes organic farming practices and regenerative farming methods, free of herbicides and pesticides. Great Lakes Cultivars is proud to be one of the first companies to receive the US Hemp Authority Certification, and continue farming under the strict regulatory guidelines to ensure the highest quality hemp.
