CBD is everywhere nowadays. Everyone and their mom is taking CBD, and for good reason.
As a first-time buyer, it might be intimidating buying CBD in person. Did you know that you can buy CBD online?
Keep reading for your guide to choosing the right online CBD shop for your needs.
Before buying anything from an online CBD retailer, read the store’s reviews. Online customer reviews will let you know about the quality of the product, as well as customer service experience and any shipping problems.
When searching for reviews, look at the reviews of stores on external websites as well as reviews for the products on the store’s website. Sometimes, people leave good reviews for incentives. External reviews will give you an unbiased view of the company.
Does the Website Look Legit?
A non-updated website is a big red flag. Check out what they use to process payments. If the payment system isn’t secure or a recognizable name like PayPal or Square, don’t give out your credit card info.
Furthermore, a lot of legitimate online CBD stores also have a blog section, or at least a thorough FAQ, talking about CBD-centric topics. Popular questions include “what are cannabinoids?” and “what is the proper dosage of CBD?”
Assess Their Selection of Products
While you are on their website, check out all of the products for sale. Do they have a wide array, or do they just have a few specialties?
Different CBD products have different effects. You can vape CBD, take it in tinctures, or eat it in an edible. Do some prior research to see what CBD best suits your lifestyle.
How Are Their Products Labeled?
Of course, you want the CBD you consume to be safe. Check to see how the website labels its products. CBD can be organic and assorted products like gummies can be vegan.
Likewise, there are standards in place for legal CBD. Legitimate sites post how their CBD is tested, as well as any certificates of analysis.
What’s Their Customer Service Like?
Don’t overlook customer service when choosing an online CBD shop. Customer service should respond promptly to any questions you have as well as any issues with your order. Is there a customer service phone number and/or email listed on the website clearly or do you have to dig for it?
Scope Out the Shipping Times and Cost
We are all getting used to quick shipping times, so having to wait upwards of a month (or more) for your CBD will be a big bummer! Look at what their shipping rates are and if they have free shipping over a certain amount. On top of that, see where they are shipping from.
Choosing an Online CBD Shop
Buying CBD has never been easier. With just a couple of clicks and some research, you can have CBD in your mailbox before you know it. And if you follow this guide, your first order from an online CBD shop will be a success.
