So, you’ve decided you want to get CBD oil. You’ve done your research, and have a good idea of what to check for when evaluating your CBD product. But how do you actually get your hands on the stuff?
Worry not, friend. Here’s how to buy CBD oil for the first time.
Evaluate your needs
While you’ve likely already considered the (possibly many) reasons you’d like to try CBD, we’ve got to start with this as a first mention. Having a clear idea of your CBD needs will better help you identify what kind of products to select, and will help any brands working with you better point you in the right direction.
Evaluate your state
While CBD and industrial hemp are federally legal, some states do have different regulations when it comes to how you can get CBD. For example, as a Colorado Hemp Company, Bluebird Botanicals can ship nationwide - except to South Dakota.
However, in most states, you can buy CBD from an online or in-person retailer of your choice. It’s up to you which method is preferred. With an in-store purchase, you do have to travel to the store but more often than not may be offered the chance to talk with a knowledgeable employee about your intended CBD purchase. Shopping online affords the opportunity of having CBD delivered directly to your door, which is great for those seeking convenience and who have a good idea of what product to choose. Many CBD companies offer free shipping thresholds or subscription programs.

Evaluate your intended supplier
The last and most important thing to know about how to buy CBD oil for the first time is to evaluate your chosen CBD provider for quality and potency. Not sure what to look for?
