Choosing a Quality Product
1. Select a CBD-infused edible for the most discrete option.
- CBD naturally has a slightly earthy or herby flavor, but many products try to mask it with sugar and other natural ingredients.
- While you can split up doses of edibles, the actual size of the doses may vary from batch to batch.
2. Pick an oil tincture if you want to add CBD to your own food.
- You can also buy flavored tinctures if you want.
3. Check the product label to find the CBD concentration.
- For example, if you weigh 150 pounds (68 kg), divide it by 10 so 150/10=15. The low end of the CBD to take is 15 x 1 = 15 mg, while the high end of the range is 15 x 6 = 90 mg.
- If you don’t see the concentration information listed anywhere, avoid taking the CBD edible since it may have too much or too little of a concentration to work.
- Many CBD edibles range from 10–20 mg per dose, but it may vary.
4. See if the CBD was extracted with CO2.
Tip: Some manufacturers have a toll-free number that you can call with questions if you aren’t able to find the extraction method listed anywhere else.
5. Look for CBD products that have been tested by a third-party lab.
- Don’t get CBD edibles if they haven’t been tested by a third-party lab since they may not be safe.
Finding a CBD Seller
1. Go to a CBD specialty store or dispensary if you want the edibles right away.
- Many areas require you to be above 18 or 21 in order to enter a dispensary.
2. Use a cannabis delivery service for a convenient alternative.
- There may not be a cannabis delivery service in your area.
- You need to be older than 21 and have a valid ID to use a cannabis delivery service.
- Don’t forget to tip the delivery driver when you receive your order.
