Episode 3 | How to Buy CBD

You want to begin with the biomass, or the plant product, that comes out of your field.  Obviously an organic field will be better than a non-organic field.  We test all of our products to make sure they have no pesticides, heavy metals, mold, mildew or anything before we even start to process. A lot of companies out there don't.  They'd rather make what they make and try to pull out the junk later.  At Freedom CBD, we go the other way.  We'd rather spend more time, spend more money to get a product we don't have to remediate pesticides from.


All CBD isn't created equal.  And it can be hard to decipher what you're even getting when you purchase a product.  So what do you do and where do you start?

That's what today's episode is all about!  I'm talking with Brian Smalley, COO at Freedom CBD about what makes their product unique and why they hold themselves to such a high standard.
