6 Reasons to Only Purchase CBD Made in the USA
CBD products are more widely available than ever before, and it’s clear that the American hemp industry is booming. Ever since the Farm Bill was passed in 2018, hemp farmers have been able to maintain lucrative businesses by offering their quality hemp crops to manufacturers who turn the plant material into a rich array of formulations, including tasty gummies, versatile CBD oils, flavorful vapes, soothing topicals, and so much more.
USA-Made CBD Products Offered at The Vape Mall
At The Vape Mall, we are proud to only offer quality CBD goods from American companies. This means that the hemp was grown domestically, and the products themselves were manufactured right here in the United States, adhering to federal standards while containing domestically sourced ingredients.
As you’ll now see, sticking with American-made hemp products can give you a better experience overall, while playing an important role in sustaining our country’s booming CBD market.
Reason #1: CBD Made in the U.S. is Fresh
We know the importance of freshness when it comes to CBD. Hemp extracts have a shelf life of about two years, after which time the compounds start to degrade, and cause the hemp to lose its potency as a result. This means that expired hemp is basically useless.
Domestically made CBD spends less time traveling to your door, and so the likelihood of it being fresh is greatly increased. Further, the CBD market is so successful in America that American companies have extremely high turnover rates, meaning you’re more likely to get a super fresh product when you order. And, beyond that, CBD that travels via U.S. mail is less likely to get tampered with or contaminated, as CBD that has to travel through customs can get damaged or exposed to harsh conditions during the process.
Reason #2: American-Made CBD Products are Made According to Federal Standards
When it comes to hemp, the importance of quality can’t be overlooked. There are so many factors that determine the quality and safety of a CBD product, starting with the way in which the hemp itself was grown, all the way to the way in which it was packaged. The United States has its own federal standards and guidelines when it comes to how these products are manufactured and is known to have some of the highest standards in the world. Therefore, sticking with American-made CBD products ensures that your product was made according to these strict standards, to be a better-quality product overall.
Now, we are not saying that all other countries offer only low-quality hemp. But our standards are constantly evolving to reflect the huge growth rate of the CBD market, meaning that the standards are always improving and becoming stricter to ensure that customers get only the best hemp that’s available globally.
Reason #3: CBD Usually Costs Less
In most cases, buying domestically made CBD goods will cost you less. This makes sense considering how much of the cost has to do with the travel expenses, shipping products from one country to another. Furthermore, companies that make their products domestically save on overall manufacturing costs and can therefore afford to sell their products for lower prices.
In short, if you want to maintain a routine with hemp and do not want to spend too much money in the process, buying domestic CBD is the way to go.
Reason #4: Company You Buy from Has More Control Over the Product
Some companies outsource aspects of their manufacturing to other countries that are willing to do certain tasks for cheaper costs. This means that those products cannot claim to be American-made. Companies that do their manufacturing domestically are more likely to have control over how the products are made, as they can oversee all aspects of the manufacturing process. This is important, because it allows companies to make sure that everything is made to the highest standards.
When companies outsource, they’re looking to cut down on costs, and that is why they do it. The problem is, often enough, these processes are done more cheaply overseas due to using lower-quality equipment, materials, and/or ingredients.
Reason #5: Buying American-Made Hemp Supports Our Country’s Hemp Economy
When purchasing American-made CBD, you are directly supporting our country’s CBD industry, as well as the farmers who devote their lives to cultivating the best crops possible. Therefore, it helps keep the CBD industry alive and thriving so that it can continue to deliver quality hemp to us for a long time to come.
The CBD industry in America needs our constant support as it is still a new industry trying to survive and plant seeds for the future. If we do not buy American, then we’re supporting the hemp industries of other countries, and not giving our own farmers the boost that they need to keep giving us the CBD that we know and love.
Reason #6: American Hemp Products are Tested by Certified Laboratories in the United States
CBD products made in the United States are required by law to be tested by a third-party laboratory, mainly to ensure that the products contain no more than 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit set forth by the Federal Government. This means that products made outside the United States may not be tested as rigorously. The testing process also checks for impurities and microbes that can interfere with the quality of the product. Labs must be certified with the department of agriculture to legally test samples of hemp extract.
This means that buying American CBD ensures that your product has been tested based on federal standards, thus ensuring that you are, in fact, getting a high-quality, pure and legal hemp product.
Made in the USA is the Right Buying Choice!
As you can see, it is hard to justify buying CBD that’s made outside of the United States. American-made hemp products are more likely to be high in quality, tested properly and overseen during the manufacturing process. Equally important is the fact that buying American hemp supports our own country’s CBD industry so that it can keep delivering for years to come.
