1. The CBD was not purchased from a reputable source
The market for CBD products has become quite over-saturated, with companies trying to cash in. This means CBD prices fluctuate greatly, as does quality and consistency. It is not uncommon these days to find a CBD display at the gas station or your local drug store – even at Hollywood Video…Yep. CBD products that generate revenue for stores like the ones listed are more likely not to be top-of-the-line products. Sure, there might be a gem in there somewhere – but to be sure you are purchasing quality CBD, you should source it from health practitioners or natural health stores. CBD products from Compassionate Certification Centers are pharmaceutical grade and physician approved!
2. Not lab tested / No label transparency
Another clear sign that a CBD product is not top quality goes one step further from the retailer and originates with the manufacturer. Consumers should always carefully evaluate the labels of any CBD product before purchasing. Ingredients should be clearly listed, and minimal. Check the front and back for any seals of approval and seek out the listed expiration date. There will usually be some sort of batch identifier on the label and clear, direct links leading to lab results. CCC’s brand of CBD products feature all of the above, including a QR code on the label that will direct you to our certificates of analysis.
3. Taking the wrong cannabinoids
There are three types of CBD (cannabidiol) extracts – Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate. It is important to know which works best for you because many people seem to find better relief from the “entourage effect” of cannabinoids. This means each cannabinoid has properties that may enhance the effect of others’ – when used in conjunction. Check out the article here for more information on the differences and benefits of each.
4. Improper dosage amount or method of consumption
Just like some people need to take vitamins in a liquid form to absorb them, some forms of CBD may not work as well on one person as another. Depending on how the cannabinoids are absorbed, they may hit various receptors differently. Furthermore, people experience flare-ups differently, as they do relief. This means that a friend may need to take a higher or lower dose than you in order to achieve comfort. It’s really a very individualized concept, and everyone’s body chemistry is different. A high majority of patients rely on the process of trial-and-error to find the best treatment – spending excess time and money before finding relief. Fortunately, we have a short-cut for you.

5. Only taking CBD as needed
The number one mistake most people make with CBD is taking it only as needed for a flare up of symptoms. THC is a compound we tend to reach for quick relief from pain or other symptoms and many people think of CBD the same way. While eating a few gummies at the onset of pain may help, it is important for the user’s endocannabinoid system to be fully supplemented to optimize relief. This means CBD should be taken every day like a supplement. When you add it to your daily routine, after a few weeks most patients notice a change in symptoms – preventing the flare-ups before they happen, not just treating them as they occur. For an extra boost of relief on bad days, patients can then add additional doses as needed. Many patients fine that taking CBD twice a day keeps their endocannabinoid system supplemented throughout the day.
