How to Buy CBD Oil for the First Time

how to buy cbd oil

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.

While CBD and industrial hemp are federally legal, some states do have different regulations when it comes to how you can get CBD. As a Colorado Hemp Company, Bluebird Botanicals can ship nationwide. However, some states limit the types of CBD products that can be sold. For example, Utah doesn't permit the sale of our CBD gummies due to the square shape. 

However, in most states, you can buy your choice of CBD from an online or in-person retailer. 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. Bonus - when you shop Bluebird CBD directly from our website, you can score some sweet savings with our subscription program.


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. 

Pick a product based on your preference for strength and formula.

Once you've identified your particular needs, you can browse Bluebird's products based on your preference for strength and formulation so that you can easily find the best blend to start with.

To begin, decide how strong you'd like your product to be. You can choose between original strength blends with 10 mg of CBD per serving, moderate strength blends with 15 mg per serving, and extra strength blends with 25 mg per serving.

Then, pick which type of formula you'd like. Bluebird offers basic formulas with simple, minimal ingredients like hemp extract plus carrier oils and/or flavors, comprehensive formulas with an extra boost of isolated cannabinoids and terpenes, and enhanced formulas with additional herbs and botanicals for extra wellness support.

For most beginners, we recommend starting with one of our basic formulas in original or moderate strength to establish a baseline of what CBD can do for you. However, depending on the impact you’re looking to achieve from CBD, you may find success from jumping ahead to one of our comprehensive or enhanced blends to reap the benefits from the additional ingredients.
