Organic vs Non-Organic CBD Oil: Which is Better?

Organic vs Non-Organic CBD Oil: Which is Better?

Certified organic produce is considered the highest quality in the industry, but what about organic CBD oil? These days, the key to finding superior CBD products is surprisingly simple: look for the USDA certified organic seal.

With new CBD brands popping up every day, choosing the right product has never been more confusing. Although the primary ingredient is probably cannabidiol; you know by now that not all CBD oils are created equal. Smart consumers want a quick way to determine which CBD products are worth the money. Was your CBD made by trained professionals in a lab, or was it whipped up by amateurs in a bathtub? Instead of blindly hoping for the best, just look for this seal. If you find it on the bottle, you’ll know that the CBD has achieved “organic” status.

What does the USDA Organic Seal Mean?

From farm to market, certified organic CBD products meet all of the requirements outlined in the USDA’s organic regulations.

Achieving this status is no easy task. Certified organic products must be completely free of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, growth hormones, sewage sludge, radiation, GMOs, and much more. For a CBD manufacturer, this involves a lot of moving parts. Check out our infographic below:

Organic CBD: What’s the Difference?

To put it simply, “certified organic” is a label that you can trust. Because obtaining a USDA organic seal requires such a high degree of transparency and quality, only the most reputable CBD brands will care enough to obtain it. It also carries the same benefits as organic foods. Let’s explore the two main reasons why organic CBD is just better.

It’s Better for Your Body

The USDA certification is an easy way to ensure that your CBD was cultivated, harvested, and processed without exposure to any toxic agents or additives. This makes the product safe, clean, and healthy for people and pets. Unfortunately, synthetic pesticides and fertilizers are known to drain the soil of its natural nutrients. In hemp, this results in lower yields per acre.

That’s not all, though. Non-organic hemp could also hurt your well-being. Hemp is a well-known bioaccumulator. That’s a fancy way to say it sponges up all the harmful pesticides, chemicals, and toxins from the soil and water from which it grows.

While this is great for the land, there’s a very good chance that the hemp will contain trace amounts of those toxins. And when hemp gets processed, those toxins will come with it. This is the problem with non-certified CBD products: you could be dumping really harmful chemicals into your own body.

Some studies indicate that even at low doses, chemical pesticides can increase the risk of certain cancers. Although children, pregnant women, and pets are most vulnerable to pesticide exposure, those with weak immune systems are also at high risk.

Considering that many people who use CBD products already have fragile immune systems, it’s not hard to see how these harmful chemicals could have devastating effects.

THE BOTTOM LINE: If your hemp is USDA certified organic, the soil hasn’t had any synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or toxins in it for at least three years. This means that your hemp will have more natural nutrients to feed on; and it will be a safer product overall.

Organic CBD is Better for the Environment

In the past few years, research has made it crystal clear: synthetic pesticides and fertilizers are bad for the environment. They have a detrimental impact on the soil, they pollute our air, and they’re deadly to animals.

Across the world, creeks, rivers, lakes and oceans are being polluted with chemical pesticides. This pollution is not only a threat to aquatic life, but they also threaten the quality of our drinking water. Organic farming reduces pollution and soil erosion. It also conserves water, and it ensures the safety of the earth’s wildlife. If you think about it, every dollar spent on organic products is a vote for sustainable, environmentally-friendly agriculture.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The choices we make today will determine the future of our earth and its inhabitants. So instead of hoping for change, why not be the change? We can all take a step in the right direction by choosing to shop organic.

Don’t be fooled… Look for the organic seal.

Many CBD brands claim to use “natural” or “organic” practices, while they’re really dumping chemicals and toxins on their hemp. If a CBD product isn’t USDA certified, it’s not tested and regulated as an organic product. That’s why you should look for the USDA “certified organic” seal.

Farmers have to maintain extremely high standards and subject themselves to routine inspections to keep their organic status. As a consumer, this gives you an excellent way to find the highest-quality CBD products on the market. Remember what the seal looks like—it’s easy to spot!
