CBD (cannabidiol) has become increasingly popular in the past few years. At one point it was the wellness world’s best-kept secret, and today it’s everywhere; in your local coffee shop and endorsed by some of sports’ biggest stars.
So although it seems like CBD can be found everywhere, how do you know what is good quality CBD?
With help from the award-winning European CBD producer Reakiro, we’ve put together a list of things to consider to help find the best CBD products for you.
Full-spectrum or Isolate
Did you know that there are different types of CBD? This might sound complicated, but don’t worry, it’s really quite simple. CBD is one of over a hundred cannabinoids found in hemp. At one point it was thought that taking only the CBD from the extract and eliminating the other compounds would make the most effective final extract (this is called isolate CBD).
However, research found that when the compounds are kept together, resembling their natural structure, this actually has a greater effect. This is called full-spectrum CBD and this is why all Reakiro products always offer premium full-spectrum CBD.

How’s it made?
Knowing how your CBD came to be is an important indicator of what kind of product you are using. After all, many people chose CBD as a natural alternative, so it’s important to know that you are consuming something which is produced naturally.
CBD manufacturers should be upfront with information about where their hemp plants are grown and how their CBD is extracted. Having this kind of transparency, like Reakiro’s seed to shelf promise, gives you confidence in your chosen CBD product.
Made for customers
The best products are made with the customer in mind: what are their needs, how can this experience be optimised.
Reakiro’s mission is to bring CBD into as many people’s lives as possible, and so the team carried out thorough customer research when developing their products. They also spent two years finding the best fields and researching the best hemp strains before they started production.
You can tell how diligently a specific company has acted with their community in mind by reading product and customer reviews. These can be found via online reviews, and also reviews on a third-party review platform like Trustpilot.
The best for you
Everyone has different tastes, needs, and preferences – which is why there is not just one way of taking CBD. One of the most popular forms of CBD is the oil tincture, which you take by placing a few droplets under your tongue. However, this is far from your only option. Getting the right strength of oil is important and as you begin you may want to progress from lower strength to higher. A good range, like Reakiro, will offer a wide range of strengths to offer maximum flexibility.
For those who are looking for a quick and convenient way to get their CBD intake, there are capsules that offer a flavourless, easy to swallow controlled dosage. Again, look for those that offer a good variety of strengths. And if you are looking for a more flavourful experience (and not the naturally earthy flavour of hemp) there are products such as Reakiro’s flavoured CBD sprays.
If you do love the flavour of CBD, there are innovative forms like Reakiro’s first-to-market RX pen which offers the purest form of full-spectrum CBD extract. The RX pen delivers a 25mg dose of CBD in each click and the unique airless device keeps the extract fresh right from the 1st to the 40th click.
All products mentioned so far are to be ingested. However you may want to consider topical CBD products which can come in the form of creams, balms, and gels amongst others.
Another thing to consider, which differs from person to person, is the dosage of CBD you want to take. The potency of CBD extract is clearly marked on a CBD product, for example, a Reakiro bottle of CBD oil can range from having 300mg and 1500mg of CBD extract.
Average dosages tend to range between 5mg and 25mg per serving. In a similar way to appetite, everyone has a different appetite which can change due to physical factors, or day-to-day factors. Finding the right dosage for you is a process that should not be rushed.
And of course being confident in that what you are buying is important – that’s why all Reakiro products are tested twice – firstly by their own inhouse PHD Chemists, and again by Europe’s biggest independent testing facility, so that you can buy with total confidence.
