Organic CBD

Why Buying Organic Oils is Important

There are a lot of chemicals that can go into the process of growing almost any type of plant, fruit or vegetable.

When a cash crop comes around, currently Cannabis/Hemp, people look for faster ways to grow, increasing profit.

Not only is growing a plant fast desirable, but also keeping pests and mildew at bay. Sadly the harsher the chemical, the better when it comes to managing disease, bugs and mold.

Growing organic is slower, with higher risks of loosing crops. But besides whether or not the CBD companies are willing to be honest about the chemicals they use in agriculture, do they even HAVE to be honest?

The hemp plant can most definitely be grown using organic methods, but usually isn’t. Companies can call their CBD oil “organic, yet due to current USDA certification standards, highly unlikely.

Why is this unlikely? To start, the FDA does not regulate CBD products, which is why so many US-based companies are calling their CBD oil organic. Thus, misrepresenting facts. Domestic hemp and CBD oil is not a USDA (US Department of Agriculture) certified organic product. To attain the ‘organic CBD oil’ status, it would have to be recognized by the FDA or Food and Drug Administration.

Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid that was discovered in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. Commonly used to tried anxiety and pain.

Buying International CBD Oil

Strangely the USDA does certify imported hemp products, putting US-based companies at a disadvantage. This doesn’t mean that imported CBD is better. It just means domestic CBD companies can’t use the USDA certified organic label while international CBD companies can.
