What is CBD?

Cannabidiol ("CBD") is one of the most popular supplements on the market today. CBD is one of over 120 known cannabinoids found in the Cannabis sativa L. plant.  Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% THC.  CBD is isolated from all of the other cannabinoids in the hemp plant.  CBD does not have psychoactive properties.  Solari’s CBD isolate is THC-Free, so there is no risk of getting "high" when using our CBD isolate products.  A variety of research is beginning to show a number of potential benefits of CBD, while users tout the oil’s ability to help manage pain, anxiety, and trouble with sleeping.

Solari meets the strictest quality standards with all of our CBD products. If you are interested in trying CBD, here are four suggestions to consider when shopping for the best quality product to help maximize your experience. Let Solari help you understand how CBD can be added to your daily health regimen.

First, be sure to discuss CBD with your doctor. CBD is generally considered safe with very little risk of side effects. However, it is important to make your doctor aware of your use of CBD.

Second, once you’ve discussed the use of CBD with your doctor, you’ll want to make sure you shop for a high-quality product. Not all CBD products are created equal. CBD is extracted from the colas (flowers) of hemp plants. In order to isolate the CBD-rich oil from the hemp plant, a multistep extraction process is used to remove fats, lipids, cannabinoids, and terpenes. While different extraction methods can provide a variety of advantages, it is important to select a provider that consistently tests for pesticides, heavy metals, and residual solvents that can be present during the extraction process. Solari consistently tests all of our final products to ensure there are no harmful chemicals or contaminants present within our extracts.

Third, in addition to considering how the CBD is extracted, look for the source of the plants used to create the oil. Cannabis easily absorbs contaminants in the soil as it grows. As mentioned above, heavy metals and pesticides on the plant or in the soil may be present in the resulting oil. The only way to avoid exposure to these contaminants is to know exactly where your hemp is grown. Solari’s seed-to-shelf process ensures our hemp never leaves our sight. Our crops are grown on our farms in Colorado without the use of any pesticides and our soil is consistently tested for heavy metals. A reputable brand should always disclose the location the hemp was grown so a consumer like yourself has full disclosure prior to purchasing the product. Reputable brands should also make independent test results available on its website to demonstrate that its products are free of pesticides, heavy metals, and microbial contaminants.

Finally, it is important to consider the quality of the CBD product you purchase. Not all CBD is formulated to achieve the maximum benefit of the oil. You’ll want to ensure that you are getting the appropriate level of CBD without any unnecessary ingredients. When taking CBD orally, the best results are achieved when taken with the proper formulation along with a meal to help your body absorb the ideal amount of CBD. Solari’s CBD products are formulated with all-natural ingredients, so you can feel confident that you are getting the optimal amount of CBD without anything else. Furthermore, test results provided for each product by an independent lab and complete transparency concerning every ingredient in the CBD oil will help you choose the best product for your needs.

Knowing what to look for when choosing a CBD product will help ensure you experience the full range of benefits from this amazing supplement!
