posted by Chris Valentine

The popularity of CBD has skyrocketed all over the globe over the past couple of years. It seems as if you can’t even go to the local grocery store without hearing about CBD in one form or another. More and more people are turning to CBD as their go-to natural remedy for a variety of issues. People are adding CBD into their everyday wellness routine in a variety of ways, from using softgels with melatonin to help maintain a healthier sleep cycle to using CBD oils to maintain a calm demeanor throughout the day. CBD’s versatility is unmatched and can be used in a variety of products which only increases its appeal even more. With so many people using CBD products the number of brands entering the space has increased substantially. There are a lot of companies and products in the industry at this time, however not all CBD is created equal. We will help guide you through the basics of CBD and what to look for when purchasing any CBD products.

CBD: Breaking Down The Basics

CBD is one of over 100 different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant family. Although CBD is part of the cannabis plant family, it has some very drastic differences to its notorious cousin compound THC. THC oftentimes is found in Marijuana and creates an intoxicating “high” experience. CBD on the other hand is derived from hemp and usually contains little to no THC, and will not give users an unwanted psychoactive experience. To ensure you do not get an intoxicating experience we urge customers to look for THC-Free products that are third party laboratory tested. Below you will find some of the most important factors to look for when browsing the CBD space.

USA Grown & Extracted

When searching for CBD products one of the most vital aspects to look for is if the brand uses hemp grown in the USA and extracts their hemp in the USA. This is extremely important to ensure that the CBD products do not contain any harsh chemicals or pesticides. Some brands in the industry cut corners and use hemp grown overseas in placed like Germany and China. The cultivation standards overseas tend to be very relaxed and the soil contains harsh heavy metals and pesticides. These type of harmful substances do not belong in any consumable products.

Seed To Sale Traceability

All CBD products should have traceability from seed to sale through third party laboratory results to ensure that their products are pure and potent. This ensures that consumers can view lab results to see what batch of oil is used in their finished product being put into their body. This can ensure that your products are free of harsh substances such as heavy metals, microbials and pesticides.


Trust comes from transparency. Transparency is a must in the CBD industry, you want to purchase from companies that disclose their cultivation and extraction methods. There is too much competition in the CBD industry to settle for an average product. You want to go with a brand that stands behind their products and can easily be reached via phone call or message.

One company that checks off all of these important guidelines is GoGreen Hemp. GoGreen Hemp has been serving CBD oil to customers since 2016. Making them one of the oldest CBD only companies in the industry.

They have full traceability from seed to sale and post all of their third party laboratory results on their website. In addition, all of their hemp plants are grown here in the USA and have the strictest quality control measures in the industry. They also detail their CBD process from cultivation to fulfillment.

When it comes to first time CBD Oil users GoGreen Hemp recommends either their top selling CBD Oil Tinctures, CBD gummies or their new CBD Stick. Below you will find some of these recommendations:

CBD Oil Tincture – These oil tinctures are GoGreen Hemp’s best sellers and for good reason, they are not only effective but also delicious. They are meant to be taken sublingually (underneath the tongue) and come in a variety of different strengths and flavors.

CBD Stick – This stick is made with three natural ingredients and is great for external pain and inflammation. Simply rub on the stick on to areas causing discomfort and allow the CBD to absorb through your skin.

CBD Gummies – CBD gummies are arguably one of the most popular ways of taking CBD. GoGreen Hemp has a vast line of edibles from CBD peach rings to CBD Vegan drops, they have products for nearly all walks of life.

These are just a few of the many THC-free products GoGreen Hemp has to offer. We hope this article has been beneficial and go out there and give CBD a try!
