Why Should I Buy CBD Products That Are Organically Certified?
With so many options available for groceries, coffee, and even CBD, it can start to feel overwhelming when narrowing down your choices. But shopping organic can help keep you and our planet healthy. This is especially true with your choice of CBD. Let’s take a deep dive into why you should buy CBD products that are organically certified.
What does USDA Organic Mean?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, or the USDA, has developed a unique set of guidelines for companies that grow and process their products organically. So, anything marketed with an authentic USDA Organic Seal is grown, processed, handled, and labeled according to these federal guidelines. These restrictions have many factors – mainly focused on soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, use of additives, and more.
Benefits of Organic Products
Certified organic products are created in a way to keep both you and the planet healthier. They lower your exposure to chemicals and artificial ingredients. In fact, there is a growing body of evidence illustrating the potential health benefits of organic products in comparison to conventionally grown products.
Less Exposure to Chemicals
Let’s face it, we all want to limit our exposure to unnatural chemicals because we don’t truly know the effects they will have on our health. That is why USDA Certified Organic products have controls on the types and quantity of pesticides used. This makes it better for the consumer, as the use of synthetic, toxic, and persistent pesticides and fertilizers is prohibited.
USDA Organic products also tend to be fresher. The guidelines that are given place restrictions on preservatives. Preservatives prolong the shelf life of a product, but don’t necessarily maintain the same degree of freshness. If you want to guarantee that your purchase is as fresh as possible, shop organic.
Better for the Environment
The planet needs our help. Thankfully, certified organic products are farmed in a way that reduces pollution, conserves water, reduces soil erosion, increases soil fertility, and uses less energy. All of these factors benefit the Earth!
When scientists first created Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) it felt like a major breakthrough. By changing the genetic makeup of the organisms, scientists were able to make stronger crops. However, this also leads to stronger “super weeds.” This, in turn, increased the use of stronger herbicides and pesticides. So by eliminating GMOs from the equation, you end up with products with fewer chemicals and products as they exist in their natural environment.
When it comes to farming, there are both good and bad bugs involved. Those that eat and destroy your crops, not so good. But pollinators are a necessity. The problem is, herbicides and pesticides can’t tell the difference between the two. They kill indiscriminately, drastically harming the environment by eliminating pollinators. Organic farming protects pollinators and therefore increases biodiversity.
A Healthier Community
Conventional farming practices come with a huge threat to surrounding communities: pesticide drift. This phenomenon allows pesticides to affect the community surrounding the farm. There can be pesticides in the soil, air, and water. This exposes the community, and especially the farmers, to increased toxins. Meanwhile, organic farming reduces pesticides and keeps the community clean and healthy.
Hemp itself has only been legally grown in the United States since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. This policy was then improved upon and given as the official ruling on hemp in January 2021. With that being said, it is a new product on the market. This makes it all the more important for the USDA to monitor growing practices. In order for hemp to be certified as organic, it must be grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Growing organic hemp, as mentioned above, has tremendous benefits for both the planet and our communities.
There are surprisingly few companies that produce a full line of USDA Certified Organic CBD products. Sure, there is a considerable time, effort, and money investment to make our CBD organic. But at Naked Roots CBD, we believe that this significant investment is worth it – not only to protect our planet, but to protect our customers.
We deal with only quality organic products. Our hemp is USA-grown and USDA Organic. Our products are also cruelty-free and vegan. When it comes to production, we don’t believe in cutting corners. You deserve the best products we can offer. That is why we make our CBD organic.
Organic CBD Gummies and Soft Gels
Edible gummies tend to be a popular choice for CBD consumption, as are CBD Soft Gels. This is because you know exactly how much you are taking every time. The dosages are consistent, so you don’t have to worry about how much you’re taking. Both take some time to go into effect, though, as they rely on digestion to enter the body.
Organic CBD Oils and Tinctures
CBD oils and tinctures begin to take effect fairly quickly, typically anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes after consumption. These liquid CBD products are consumed by placing a drop of oil under your tongue. Or, if you want to mask the taste, you can mix a few drops into a drink. Though with our key lime, orange, and refreshing mint options, you may just crave the taste!
Organic CBD Topicals
Topicals can come in many forms, such as creams, balms, ointments, and lotions. CBD topicals take approximately 15 minutes in order to take effect. They are fast-acting and you have the benefit of targeting the CBD to a specific area based on where you apply the topical. Our Lavender and Eucalyptus Salve is an all-time favorite. Or, if you’re looking for an extra relaxing experience, try our CBD Bath Bomb.
