Fact: Not all CBD products are created equal. There can be significant variations in quality between different brands and even products from the same brand. When shopping for CBD, it’s important to do your research and choose a reputable brand that offers independent  third-party lab reports to ensure that their products contain the amount of CBD advertised and no harmful contaminants. 

Myth #3: You need to take a lot of CBD to experience its effects.
