A final word
So, keep an eye out for the latest CBD products as there is whole host of new exciting products on the horizon.
But always be careful about whom you buy from. The market is currently unregulated and growing fast and there will always be a few cowboys looking to make a quick buck without any concern of product quality.
Our recommendation is to make sure you always buy from retailers who are approved and members of the cannabis trades association and who also provide their independent lab reports to ensure quality and practice.
