The CBD industry has grown like wildfire over the past few years. Now, you can find many different varieties of CBD on the market. Along with different formulations of CBD, like tinctures and oils, you'll find full-spectrum products that contain other cannabinoids alongside the CBD. When shopping for small quantities of CBD, it can be fun to experiment a little and try different things. But buying large quantities of wholesale CBD is a bit different. You really want to know what you're getting before you have hundreds or thousands of bottles of the product delivered! On that note, here are some questions to ask before buying large quantities of wholesale CBD.
Where was the hemp grown?
If you are not buying CBD directly from the person who grew the hemp it was extracted from, then you want to ask who the hemp farmer was. You can then look up the farm and learn more about their growing practices, what varieties of hemp they grow, and so forth. Also, pay attention to how far the farm is from the distributor who is selling you the CBD. It's better to buy from a distributor who sources from nearby farms since that means the CBD has not been shipped as far and is likely to have endured fewer temperature changes. (Temperature changes can reduce the quality of the product.)
Is it a full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or pure CBD product?
At the start of the CBD boom, there was just CBD. But now, there are three different types of products under the CBD umbrella, and when you're buying bulk quantities, you really need to know which one you're getting.
- Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids that can be extracted from the hemp
- Broad-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, but any traces of THC have been removed
- Pure CBD contains only CBD, with no other cannabinoids
How is the CBD packaged?
Sometimes you can buy wholesale CBD pre-packed in individual bottles and basically ready for resale. Other times, you will buy large bottles of CBD, and you'll have to divide it into smaller bottles or containers yourself. Make sure you confirm how the CBD will come to you so that you can buy additional packaging and plan for the time needed to divide the oil if needed.
If you ask the right questions, you'll have a better idea of what you're getting before your wholesale CBD arrives. When you're buying in large quantities, you deserve to know.
