Look for the actual letters CBD on the label and make sure it is Hemp grown in the US or Europe, that it is certified-organic, organic compliant, eco-farmed or food-grade hemp. Certified-organic is harder to find because the USDA has only recently started allowing hemp farmers to certify their crops.
Make sure you are avoiding toxic chemicals – that the CBD oil is extracted safely – ethanol and supercritical CO2 are safe options.
Also make sure there has been a third party testing on the product. Many brands will advertise this on their products and website.
