What to Look for When Buying CBD Oil

With so many brands and different CBD products on the market, how do you know what CBD oil to buy? These are the top features to check for when choosing a CBD oil product.

What Carrier Oil Has Been Used?

We use organic MCT oil for of our CBD oils, including our Black Label range. That includes the 2500 mg CBD oil and 5000mg CBD oil, containing thirty and sixty servings respectively of extra potency - 84 mg of CBD per serving. 

Many users, especially athletes, enjoy the addition of MCT to their CBD supplementation. MCT oil is a type of healthy saturated fatty acid loved by athletes for its endurance-boosting and lactic acid-lowering properties.

How High Is The Potency?

The potency of a CBD oil should be marked on the packaging. All of our products are marked to indicate the volume in the bottle, as well as the amount of CBD per bottle. Manufacturers of CBD oil must offer the choice of lower and higher concentrations.

For example, our 1250 mg CBD oil bottle contains thirty 1 ml servings of 42 mg of CBD. The 2500mg bottle contains the same potency, but a higher volume, with sixty servings. 


Most customers start using CBD oil at the lowest potency, and if you find that you need more, gradually increase as needed. The lowest concentration we sell is the regular strength 500 mg Cannabidiol Oil.

CBD takes time to work in the body. The truth about CBD oils is that everyone reacts a little differently. Some may need a more potent product than others.

Also, some ailments respond more readily to CBD than others. So for mild stress or sleeplessness, lower serving size and concentration may do the trick. However, more severe ailments may require a higher concentration or more regular servings. 

Another easy way to adapt the concentration of CBD in the system for times of greater need is to add small amounts of our CBD Isolate Powder to your usual CBD oil or tincture regimen. If you want an even more potent isolate, CBDa is the acidic precursor to CBD, and it is found in raw hemp plants. Therefore CBDa isolate is one of the purest forms of hemp extract available.

Is It THC-Free?

Not all CBD oils are THC-free so be sure to check what your CBD oil product contains before you buy it. If you're not careful, you could purchase and use a product that will see you banned from sports participation if you're tested.

That's not an issue when you buy any of the products from Pure Spectrum. We offer broad spectrum CBD oil products, and every one of them is guaranteed THC-free. That CBD oil feeling you get is not a result of THC, so you can safely use it even if you're involved in competitive sports.

So, what do we mean by broad and full-spectrum? Does full-spectrum CBD oil contain THC? While full-spectrum CBD oil contains THC, broad-spectrum does not.

Our CBD Bundles contain several different CBD products, but all are free from THC, and therefore not intoxicating. But bundles offer you the opportunity to test out different formulations like oils and tinctures, isolate powders, gummies, and softgels. Some of our bundles also contain topical products.

Has It Been Tested?

Have you come across a website purporting to sell genuine CBD oil, making wild and hard-to-believe claims for their product? This is a common theme in supplements sold online, and often, there are not even valid customer reviews to base your decision on.

Not all CBD oil products in the market are extensively tested, if at all. While a lack of testing is not necessarily an indicator that you've bought fake CBD oil, it is a red flag. With any supplement, always insist on products that have been tested and certified to back up their claims.

Because we realize how important this is, we not only test all our products, but we also make the test results available for all to see. That's how we know that it's even safe to use for our furry four-legged friends. So you can safely use CBD oil for cats and dogs.

And our trusted ambassadors, from the sporting and entertainment community and all walks of life, give first-hand reviews on our wide selection of products. That's real test results, and real people giving real testimonies.

With Pure Spectrum, what you see is what you get. You need never worry that what you're buying isn't what we're promoting.

  2. What has been used as the carrier oil, and are there any other additives?
  3. What is the concentration of CBD, and are there different potencies available?
  4. Is this CBD oil full or broad spectrum?
  5. Has it been tested by a third-party lab?
