Are You Doing it Right?

Is there a right way or wrong way to use CBD products?  Here are the various ways to use CBD products.

  1. Vaping. Vaping is the quickest delivery of all the methods of administration. However, it’s the shortest time of effectiveness and some chemicals in the in the vape juice are not always good to inhale. Shear Naturals does not sell these items.
  1. Under the Tongue and Swallowed. Using oil or tincture products is the most popular way to use CBD. The dropper in the bottle is used to drop CBD oil under your tongue and then swallowed. This allows the absorption process bypasses the digestive system and liver metabolization, allowing the compounds to reach your bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system more quickly.
  1. There are many kinds of edibles available from gummies to chocolate, this is a very popular way to administer CBD products. They are a tasty, easy and quick consumption. Since it passes thru the digestive system, it is slow acting, and you do not absorb all of the CBD, but it is longer lasting.
  1. Topical products are used on specific points on the skin. From creams and roll-ons to skin care, these products are geared towards interacting with cells and do not enter the bloodstream.

No matter which delivery is right for you, CBD products are wonderful for supporting and maintaining normal bodily functions, such as sleep, relaxation and easing occasional aches and pains.

Edibles: Everything You Need To Know About Gummies

A significant benefit of using CBD is that it comes in all sorts of different forms, making it simple and easy to deliver no matter what your lifestyle.

Gummy bears were first invented in Germany in the 1920s as a way to administer medications and vitamins. Now, gummies are great for incorporating the benefits of CBD without needing to carry around a tincture bottle.

Your body always absorbs a CBD gummy through the digestive system. It takes a while for the human body to absorb CBD through the digestive system, so it can take an hour or two before the effects of a CBD gummy are felt. However, in addition, edibles like gummies last longer than oils.

Gummies are simple to make, and the best ones do not have any unwanted fillers like high fructose corn syrup or any artificial colors.

For a flavor base, some manufacturers use grape juice and add a sugar cane sweetener. Others may use black carrot juice to give the gummies their deep color. Next, the gummies are carefully infused with specific potency levels.

When you are using CBD as part of an overall approach to wellness, you deserve to have the best product possible. That is why our gummies are never made with any unwanted chemicals or solvents, and all of our hemp is non-GMO and organically grown.

CBD gummies are so easy to take with you when on the go. No matter if, you are heading into a stressful work meeting or you need to find a way to support and maintain normal levels of sleep, calm relations or to ease occasional aches and pains, our edibles are perfect!

Simple Steps To Get A Quality CBD Product

Simple Steps To Get A Quality CBD Product

We all have that friend who is super skeptical about CBD. Or maybe you are the one who needs to investigate it for yourself before you put your trust in it. At Shear Naturals, we feel the same way.

Now that CBD has become more available, there are folks out there who are branding and selling it to make a buck without any real quality control. And, because the Food & Drug Administration still hasn’t regulated it yet, it’s a little like the wild west! Sadly, like all products for sale, some are just better than others and you really do get what you pay for, especially with CBD products.

This is why you really need to know where your CBD products come from. At Shear Naturals, this is a really big deal – sourcing the best, most clean CBD products available and bringing those high-quality products to you.

Here are some very simple steps to follow to ensure you purchase a high-quality CBD product.

  1. Every product should have a QR code on the label. What is a QR code? It’s the little box on the label that you can scan on your phone and goes to a landing page on the Internet with additional information.

  3. Go ahead and scan the code. The code should open up a document called a Certificate of Analysis (COA). The Certificate of Analysis is the verification that the product was tested for accuracy, potency and cleanliness.

  5. Check the COA to make sure that…
    1. It is the correct reading for that product
    2. It matches the label
    3. The amount of CBD and THC stated on the label also matches the COA document.
  6. Make sure the company you buy your CBD from is 100% transparent with information and COAs. Reputable CBD brands, like Shear Naturals, are completely transparent with all product information.

It is really that simple. If you need help with this, please contact us.

Ways to Avoid Fake CBD Products

Ways to Avoid Fake CBD Products

Did you know that there are fake CBD products flooding the market? Yes, sadly it is true.

CBD products have boomed in the past 5-6 years and so many companies want to ride the money train and do not care about quality. While the FDA is getting better at monitoring these companies and additional guidelines are sure to be forthcoming, the overall  industry it is still a bit like the wild west.

In this post, we’ll list the biggest RED flags when shopping for quality CBD products.

  1. Very high milligrams in small bottles. A 30ml bottle (which is only 1 ounce) but yet has 14,000- 300,000 mg of CBD is highly unlikely and most likely false. Reputable companies typically sell bottles at 500-5,000 mg per bottle.

  3. Hemp Seed Oil is not CBD. There is nothing unhealthy or harmful about Hemp seed oil, however, it contains no cannabinoids. It is typically used to cook with.

  5. CBD products are typically not sold in clear bottles. CBD products are light sensitive and can break down when exposed to ultraviolet light.

  7. Medical claims are a no-no. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is very particular about who is making medical claims, as they rightfully should be. Reputable CBD vendors will never tell you that CBD products are a cure all or will improve medical conditions, and any that do are not in compliance with the FDA. CBD products are promoted to support and maintain normal, healthy functions such as sleep, relaxation and easing occasional aches and pains. No CBD vendor should be making medical promises or advising you on things a doctor would normally say, but if these products work in other ways for you not mentioned here, then that is wonderful! As always, you’ll want to consult your doctor before using any CBD product, medication or supplement.

  9. Don’t buy your CBD on Amazon or in a gas station or at the dollar store. Why? Because you do not know where these products come from, which is risky, and many do not follow the compliance guidelines set by the FDA.

  11. How do I know what is high-quality? Just scan the QR code on the label and check out the 3rd party testing COA document (the Certificate of Analysis) and make sure it matches the mg for CBD and THC on the label.

CBD is a different world and needs to be treated as such. And, until it is fully regulated, it is an industry where you have to check product quality and compliance.

The good news is that with our products, you never have to worry about this issue!
