• Origin. Check the item label or product for the state of origin, once you know this it is easy to do a background check and research to see which methods are used to extract the CBD and if ethical and regulatory standards are being met and kept.
• Testing. In conjunction with the above point, their testing records and results should usually be publically available or even readily seen on their company webpage, if you can’t find them or are given the run around when enquiring about them it should raise a red flag and you are better off going somewhere else.
