How to Understand Product Labels

Updated: Oct 16, 2021

With the influx of CBD products hitting the market; now more than ever is the time to get a clear understanding of how to read and interpret the labels on the products you buy! The following ten items listed below the most important to have present on a label to ensure you're buying from a trustworthy and transparent brand!

1. The total milligrams of what is in your bottle & if it has THC or not. Our tinctures have 2000 mg of CBD in each bottle. Our tinctures come in 2 varieties (Full Spectrum & Broad Spectrum THC Free) - Full Spectrum means that the product has .3% THC in it. It is not enough to produce a psychological effect or make you feel 'high'. THC and CBD work better together (It's called the Entourage Effect) - Broad Spectrum THC Free means that the product has all the plant components (cannabinoids and terpenes) EXCEPT for the THC.

2. Brand Name: This ensures you know what company is selling the product. It allows you as the consumer to do due diligence and research the company's you buy from.

3. Total Milligram PER 1 ml. In our product, one full dropper (1 ml) contains 66 mg of CBD. This is important to know so your dosing can be tracked and monitored. Since there are no hard dosing guidelines for CBD, it is important for everyone to start with a low dose and increase slowly! Everyone's dose is going to be individualized to them.

4. Net Weight: Net Weight is important to note because in many products there is an allowable amount of certain elements (according to the FDA). This refers to the allowable amount of pesticides or other contaminants allowed per net weight. Don't stress- we don't use pesticides on our hemp and all our flower has been full panel tested to show that our product is clean and trustworthy!

5. Type of oil shows if your product has THC or not. Full Spectrum contains all the plant components (including .3% THC).
