THREE THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING WEED FROM THE BEST WEED BRANDS
- Full-spectrum cannabis oil. When a product is labeled “full spectrum,” you can trust it has all the good stuff from the whole plant. To learn more about full-spectrum, whole-plant medicine, listen to Episode 1 – The Pain Episode of How to Do the Pot.
- Tested product. When buying CBD, look for the brand’s Certificate of Analysis (COA). Even if you may not fully understand the science, providing the COA means the brand cares about what you put into your body. For a checklist on key data, visit our deeper dive into vetting products – How do I buy the pot?
- Like-minded values. Check who runs the company. We love to support women-founded brands, and buying from women is a vote with your dollars for a more equitable cannabis industry.
