Saving On CBD Oil

save moneyPaying 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

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.

You Should Always Get A Discount When Shopping Online

Getting discounts online has never been easier. All it takes is for you to consciously think about it before checking out. That’s it, really. It sounds easy, but it actually can be easier to forget than it is to remember. Unless there’s a big blaring “enter your discount here” box staring at you, you have a good chance of forgetting it.

Companies are getting smarter, and making that big blaring box a lot more incognito. Those boxes used to be huge and in your face, but now a lot of times they’re not a box at all. I’ve shopped at many places where the old-school box has been replaced with a text link. The link simply says something like “enter your code” or something of that nature. It’s easy to miss and can use verbiage that doesn’t trigger your spidey senses.

The Power is in Your Hands

Believe it or not, competition is actually at an all time high. Thanks to technology, new businesses are popping up every single day. Most of them will fail, of course, but only one or two need to succeed to create a healthy level of competition.

Look at Airbnb for example. They’ve challenged the hotel industry in a healthy way. Most people who tried to start a company like Airbnb failed miserably. But the one success upped the ante for a whole industry. Hotels are having to give their customers more for their money to lure them away from the much more affordable and comfortable Airbnb.

You know what this means for you? Discounts galore!

You Can Always Get A Discount

Thanks to the technological age, you don’t have to scrounge around, clipping sections out of the newspaper and waste 2 hours in order to save a few cents. Those days have come and gone. To save money on your next online shopping excursion, all you need to do is a quick search online or install Honey.

Using search engines to find deals is pretty easy. It only takes a minute or two and can save you a bundle of money. You will find sites like mine, that dedicate their entire existence to helping people save money. The Honey plugin is a little different and even easier to use.

honey-logoTo use it, just install it on your favorite browser. I know they have made an addon for Firefox and a version for Chrome. Both of them work excellently. After you have installed the plugin, you’ll find it pretty easy to use. They did a great job with the design and created a very intuitive user interface. It shows a number over the icon which indicates how many coupons it has found for a specific store.

When you get to the checkout page, you’ll be prompted to try the coupons. Click the button that gives honey the permission to try the coupons, and it’ll submit each and every coupon it has for the store. Once it’s tried all the coupons, it automatically selects the one that will give you the biggest discount. With a plugin like this, you don’t even have to search the internet anymore. It does all the hard work for you. That’s the beauty of technology.
