Considering CBD? 8 things you must know.
1. Is it actually CBD?
There are fake or harmful products being passed off as CBD. To confirm it is legitimate CBD, it must be tested in an independent laboratory. If the products aren’t tested in a lab, there is no way to be sure whether harmful chemicals and/or contaminants are present, and/or you may not be getting the amount of CBD (or THC) listed on the label.
2. Is the quality and purity of the CBD confirmed by an outside 3rd-party lab?
They absolutely MUST be. If not, find another company to trust your health with. Also, the results of the lab tests need to be posted on their site. See ours.
3. Does the product have 0.3% THC or less?
If not, it may not be legal in your state. And if there’s too much THC, you may get psychoactive effects that you won’t get with pure CBD.
4. Should you use an oil, capsule, or topical cream?
Use topical cream for local relief. Back and muscle pain as well as arthritis benefit from topical treatment.
If you’re looking to treat more than a localized area or two, take CBD orally. The best bet is our oral CBD oil as it’s 15% to 20% more bioavailable than swallowing a capsule. (Use capsule if the convenience is important).
5. Where did the hemp come from?
Hemp can grow in many places, including Asia and Europe, but the growing conditions in the US make it the best place to grow quality hemp. Our hemp is organically grown in the US.
6. Are the ingredients all-natural?
Are there additives and hard-to-pronounce ingredients? If so, be sure you know what you’re getting. Sunrise products contain pure CBD, are all-natural, and vegan-friendly.
7. What is an effective daily dose?
Some people report positive results with as little at 20 mg of CBD per day, but most find 50 mg to 100 mg per day to be most effective.
8. Is it priced fairly?
The price of CBD is very confusing. This confusion can lead people to believe that a $15 bottle is a better value then a $150 bottle. While two bottles of CBD oil are physically the same “size”, the amount of actual CBD per bottle may vary all the way from 100mg to-3000mg. To compare prices, you have to use the same quantity of milligrams in each bottle. Basically, let’s compare apples to apples. For example, a Sunrise CBD 1,500mg bottle is $49, or about 3 cents per milligram. A 100mg bottle for $15 is actually about 7 cents per milligram. Not only is the 100mg more expensive, you would have to use ½ the bottle to get an effective daily dose (50mg).
