When looking to source quality CBD, there are countless factors to be considered and price is definitely one of them, however, the old saying "you get what you pay for" isn't always the case.
If you have ever surfed the web in search of CBD, I am sure you have seen the flashing icons, paid top thirty lists, and websites that have no point of contact. This can be discouraging and drive people to splurge on the highest price found. It must mean quality, right? Not necessarily.
Cannabidiol, often seen as the acronym CBD, falls into a class of molecules known as cannabinoids. There are over 60 recognized cannabinoids in the Cannabis Sativa plant and CBD just so happens to be the most predominant cannabinoid in hemp and studied to be the most therapeutic.
So, you want to know how much you are paying per milligram for your CBD? Lets first consider one thing: total CBD content is different than total cannabinoid content.
That being said, we exclusively create full spectrum oil, meaning we value the synergistic effects of all natural cannabinoids; however, we think transparency is doubly important when it comes to what consumers are after, which is CBD. Next time you read a label stating "20 milligrams of cannabinoids per serving,” be aware that does not accurately reflect the amount of CBD present per serving. Total CBD content is different than total cannabinoid content.
To get a true price comparison, CBD for CBD, you need to know how much CBD is in your bottle. Once you have that, it is time to crunch the numbers! Simply divide the price paid (before taxes) by the total CBD content in the bottle. This will tell you how much your CBD costs per milligram.
