How CBD Can Jumpstart Your New Year and Beyond

Five questions with CBDistillery

2019 was the year of empowered wellness, and that commitment was warranted after spending almost 4 years drowning in the haze of mind-altering substances, that only worsened physical and mental ailments that were uncontrollably erratic.

The national craze over the CBD marketplace has been intensifying, and the growing skepticism is necessitated by the unfortunate takeover of fake products that don’t contain the main ingredient of CBD, despite the stamped labels from unvetted manufacturers.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration)continues to monitor the rapid expansion of a hyped up movement, that’s challenging the traditional approach of soothing the symptoms that alter our ability to be functionally present.

The recent raid by the FDA resulted in the public shaming of a new list of companies that have been operating illegally by selling CBD products that don’t meet the basic standards that are in place to protect consumers from being expensively scammed.

My almost year-long experiment introduced me to a plethora of options from reputable organizations with most of them sporting the valid track record, that took root way before underground efforts became the viral trend of our time.

There were missteps with Koi CBD, which ended up on the latest list of companies called out by the FDA, but considering the amount of testing that I indulged in, it’s pretty impressive that only one out of the bunch proved to be problematic.

The rest were winners that provided relief to targeted areas of insomnia, anxiety and body aches in regions that suffer most from routine workouts.

It’s worth noting that I was being shipped a free supply of CBD tinctures, gummies, mints, capsules, etc. And that privilege briefly dulled my perspective on how pricey these items can be for everyday consumers, who can’t easily charge $55 for an oil tincture that will probably last about a month depending on dosage.

That’s why I documented the standouts in the massive landscape of worthy contenders based on the cost effective inventory and the outstanding experience of usage, that makes those purchases worthwhile if you’re desiring a healthy range of options.

This is primarily why I have been drawn to CBDistillery, the Colorado-based manufacturer that attaches passionate activism via the mantra of the CBDMOVEMENT, that’s activated to educate newbies and reassure curious explorers about the proven benefits of investing in life-enhancing supplements.

I can personally attest to the positive response after consistent indulgence, and if I can amass such feedback, there’s definitely hope for anyone who wants to give it a try.

And with the arrival of 2020, the adherence to overall wellness is at an all-time high. There’s no better way to hit that reset button than to get the direct communication from industry experts at CBDistillery, who have the answers to the questions I posed.

Hopefully, you will get the comprehensive delivery that at the very least arms you with the incentive to consider taking the plunge for your own good.

Q: How did CBDistillery come into existence, and how does your mission statement direct your company’s objectives towards the unique path that separates from other popular brands?

A: CBDistillery™ was founded in 2016 by a group of Colorado natives with the people’s best interests in mind. Our founders saw that the emerging CBD industry was vastly overpriced and quickly becoming saturated with inferior products. This inspired their strong belief that people have a right to high-quality, fairly priced, U.S. grown, hemp-derived CBD products, so they set out on a mission to be the premier resource for CBD products and education.

This mission inspired the unique approach to transparency and quality that is unparalleled in this space. CBDistillery™’s products undergo rigorous third-party testing, so you know exactly what is in the product you purchase. All products are produced using U.S. grown industrial hemp grown following natural farming practices. With a wide variety of non-addictive and non-intoxicating products at a reasonable price point, there is sure to be a product to suit your needs.

Q: What’s the best approach for cautious newbies, who are interested in exploring the benefits of the CBD marketplace, and why are products from CBDistillery the ideal starters?

A: Check for companies who have been in the game since before the 2018 Farm Bill, when the floodgates opened. The industry’s pioneers have established a high level of standards for extraction and THC-level maintenance, as they were proactive instead of reactive to the marketplace. When CBDistillery™ founders discovered CBD, they knew it was not only something incredibly beneficial, but an untapped market with potential to explode. Armed with this knowledge and the fact that the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill would contribute a surplus of brands trying to enter the retail space, CBDistillery was already prepared by predicting trends early on and being bullish of consumers looking to their local retailers to provide trusted CBD product.

A company’s longevity alone won’t tell you the most significant facts about a given CBD brand, but it’s a great place to start. The process of elimination is key, and a products packaging and promotional emails won’t give you many hints, so web research is invaluable.

To get the most out of your investment in CBD, it’s best to stick to the “traditional” methods: pills and tinctures. Many brands have discovered some eye-catching formats for their product, but they aren’t going to get you much CBD. Today, brands are adding CBD to everything…. toothpicks, shampoo, candles, air diffusers, etc… consumers need to be aware that they basically have very little, if none, bioavailability. There’s no substitute for experimentation, but this can quickly devolve into a frustrating and expensive lifestyle choice. Steer clear of the gimmicks to save time and money.

Q: How would you dispel the growing distrust with all-things CBD based on the over-saturation of products and the trendiness assigned?

A: With over 3,000 companies currently occupying the space, consumers need to know what to look for when vetting a CBD company to purchase from. Go with your gut and Look for transparency and clarity. Luckily there are plenty of trust-worthy companies that stand out in the open market and will help weed out the bad actors through educational campaigns and ensuring absolute consumer trust. Reputable companies publish their third-party test results on their websites and packaging. Products and ingredients are third-party tested for potency, residual solvents, heavy metals, and to ensure that delta-9 THC levels do not exceed 0.3%.

Even though there is no current FDA regulation, consumers should check to see if the company is trustworthy with certifications like ISO-9001, which covers quality standards for manufacturing, and U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certification, which provides the high standards, best practices and self-regulation for consumers and law enforcement to ensure that hemp products are safe. If the brand wants to educate you as a consumer, you’ll know it and be able to tell the difference from those immediately pushing you to the checkout. Consumers should also be able to scan a QR code on their product in order to view test results for their exact batch. Checking all of these boxes will ensure their product is a high-quality product that is as pure and potent as the manufacturer claims. At CBDistillery™, we proudly display all of this information on our labeling, packaging, and website and highlight it in our educational materials, making it easily digestible and simple for our customers to make an informed decision.
