With so many online companies and specialty shops, and even traditional retailers now offering CBD, it’s hard to know what CBD is worth buying and what’s not. Here are six things you need to know when shopping for premium, affordable CBD.
Let’s start with the most basic. Before you purchase CBD oil or softgels, you need to figure out the potency of the CBD. This can be done by dividing the total cost of the product by the total milligrams (mg) of CBD. (i.e. – $129.99 ÷ 3000mg CBD = $0.04 / 1mg CBD) That number will tell you exactly what the company is charging for 1mg of CBD.
Never buy from a company that only gives CBD as a percentage (%) amount, as you’ll never be able to accurately determine the potency of the CBD! USA Medical CBD is the most affordable, premium CBD when purchased as a 3000mg BUY 2 GET 1 FREE at $0.028 / 1mg CBD.
After determining the potency of a CBD product, you must examine the overall quality of the CBD. Suppose two products have identical concentrations (potency) of CBD. In that case, you must figure out if the products are organic, GMO-free, broad-spectrum, and where they’re made. For example, CBD made outside of the USA is unregulated and we recommend avoiding it altogether.
Another thing you need to know before buying CBD is the overall purity of the CBD product. Some important questions to ask:
- What was the extraction process?
- Are the original phytocannabinoids intact?
- What are the other ingredients?
USA Medical produces CBD-rich hemp oil by utilizing supercritical CO2 to produce an extract rich in terpenes, cannabidiol (CBD), and a broad spectrum of the original phytocannabinoids. This extract is further purified through vacuum distillation, resulting in high-quality ingredients that preserve the minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and all other organic compounds!
Everyone can agree that purer is always better regarding anything we put into our bodies. In our opinion, there’s never a reason to settle for low-quality CBD when USA Medical CBD is already more affordable than some of the low-quality CBD brands available on the market.
Now that you’ve found CBD oil that’s high quality, potent, and pure, the fundamental strength of the CBD must be questioned. When CBD is “broad-spectrum,” it means that it includes the original, organic phytocannabinoids found in hemp. Synergy (also known as the entourage effect) is a major factor as it relates to CBD strength.
Organic, broad-spectrum CBD oil has a higher absorption rate than highly processed, diluted CBD. Some CBD oil is incredibly (and unbelievably) inexpensive, sometimes selling for less than $10 for multiple bottles! The question you have to ask is, “Why is that particular CBD is so cheap?” The answer is usually, if not always, because the strength of the CBD is incredibly low, meaning your body will never absorb even a fraction of low-quality CBD.
CBD Lab Testing
Never, under any circumstance, take a company’s ‘word’ on anything. Always look for professional, 3rd-party lab test results to ensure honesty and transparency. Suppose a CBD company is not seeking 3rd-party, fully transparent, independent lab tests. In that case, they either can’t afford the lab tests (which are expensive but necessary) or have something to hide.
USA Medical lab tests each and every product to ensure our CBD quality, potency, purity, and strength are of the highest standards possible. Every day, we evaluate COA’s (Certificates of Analysis) to ensure our CBD remains consistent for our customers, providing full transparency every step of the way.

Now that you know the six things you need to know before buying CBD While most CBD companies are focused on their bottom-line, USA Medical focuses on educating the world as to why CBD is such a fantastic alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals. While CBD can not replace a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle, potent, pure, and organic CBD is an incredible organic compound that can act as a holistic aid to your body’s natural regulatory systems.
