Paying full price for CBD can be a painful experience. Unless you have a money tree in your backyard, you have probably cringed at the price markup of some companies. Unfortunately, higher prices doesn’t always equal high-quality.
I can think of several companies off the top of my head that charge up to three and four times the prices of other companies but their products aren’t any better. One company’s products are the worst I’ve tried, but also one of the most expensive.
There are enough newcomers to keep falling victim to the crazy prices. This poor guy paid $25 for one dose, which is ridiculous! Hopefully he didn’t keep buying that same product. That’s a completely unacceptable price.
Price Shop First
The best way to combat the expensive pricing is to leverage the internet to become a savvy shopper. Until you find a company that meets all of your requirements, buying low priced products is a good way to protect yourself. You can always find discounts on the internet too.
This is my favorite strategy to share with people because it protects your bottom line. This strategy only works for markets where there isn’t a correlation between price and quality. In a lot of markets, you get what you pay for but that’s not true in the CBD marketplace.
Since the price correlation doesn’t hold true for CBD, you should start on the lower end of the price spectrum or with discount CBD oil. Why would you pay an arm and a leg without knowing the quality of the oil first? Trying to return CBD oil would be like trying to return a gently used lollipop. Nobody is going to accept it. These companies do have short, often 7-day return policies but good luck trying to use it. Your best option is to shop carefully and stick with whichever company can meet your needs at a reasonable price.
3 Biggest Benefits of CBD Oil
Now that you know how to approach your CBD shopping, let’s talk about a few of the benefits.
The most obvious and well-known benefit is pain relief. To be more clear, neuropathic and inflammatory pain relief. This is something that scientists have been studying and reporting on for years. It’s possibly the most publicized benefit of the bunch. It’s the first benefit I think about in regards to the cannabinoid.
The next most commonly talked about benefit is anxiety relief. There are several studies that have reported on the anxiolytic-like effects of CBD. This benefit is one that could be documented a little better. From my research, I can’t tell what a good starting dose would be. A lot of the studies use several hundred milligrams per dose which isn’t affordable at the retail level.
The last of the big three benefits is depression relief. Depression is a serious problem in today’s world and CBD may be one of the best options currently available. It doesn’t require a prescription and doesn’t have a long list of side effects either. You still need to be careful with taking CBD and you should not use CBD in place of whatever you’re taking unless your doctor says so. I’m just briefly mentioning these benefits so you can have a little guidance to start your research with. This is something we all should research on our own and take seriously.
