CBD Insights

CBD has fast become a popular health craze over the past few years, and with so many potential benefits, it’s easy to understand why. From pain relief to helping with panic attacks, CBD is said to do it all. It’s also available in so many different forms as well. You can choose from a CBD oil or a CBD salve, and even a CBD cookie! However, while you may be familiar with the concept of CBD, you might not be so sure about its pricing. Each company tends to have different prices too, so how do you know which ones are right and just how expensive should they be? Keep reading to find out… 


One of the biggest factors when it comes to the pricing of CBD is its strength. Generally, the stronger the CBD is, the more it’s going to cost. Just as the strength is on a sliding scale, so is the price. It doesn’t matter who you buy your CBD from, nine times out of ten, this will be the case. The stronger the CBD, the higher the concentration of it in the product so even though you’re still getting the same sized products, you’re actually getting more CBD the stronger it is. Extracting CBD from the cannabis plant isn’t easy and it’s not a cheap process. This makes up a part of why a stronger CBD product will be more expensive.


As well as the strength, it also depends on how much of the product you buy. Just like everything else, the bigger the product, the bigger the price. CBD itself is an expensive compound to procure and process, so you’re it’s only right that you pay more for a larger product that contains more of that pricey chemical. However, some companies might offer discounts on larger products as part of a deal, so sometimes you can be better off going for something bigger than you originally planned. It’s also a good idea to think about how often you’ll be using the CBD product, as buying a large one might not be as beneficial for you. For example, if you suffer from chronic pain, then you’ll most likely be using your CBD cream a lot. Whereas, if you’re planning on using it when you can’t sleep, then you might not need it as often. This can help you decide if you need to purchase an expensive large product or go for something smaller.  

Type Of Product

The type of CBD product you go for will also affect the price. For instance, if you buy CBD oil, it tends to be a similar price to things like soft gels. However, CBD topical creams can be a lot more expensive because now you’re paying for two products essentially: CBD and the body cream. When buying CBD in simpler forms, you can expect to pay less. One item that tends to be relatively cheap is CBD gummies. These tasty treats normally have a lower price point, but they can also have a lower dosage.  You might find that you can get more high-end products too like bath salts and candles. These too can be more expensive than a simple bag of CBD gummies. It all depends on what type of product you’re looking for that will determine how much you pay. 

Organic And Sustainable

When shopping for CBD, ideally, you’d want to have the best of the best and one way to do this is by choosing an organic brand. Hemp farming takes a lot of time and effort, so if something is claiming to be completely organic but doesn’t use sustainable practices and is extremely cheap, then it’s probably too good to be true. Organic CBD will most likely be more expensive, but it also means that your CBD won’t have been exposed to any harsh chemicals during its life cycle. This keeps them out of your body, so paying a little more for an organic brand is something you can’t put a price on really. It’s also good to look out for brands that are sustainable and that they source their CBD fairly. Businesses that do this will probably charge a little more, but that’s because they will have paid more to ensure they’re getting something pure and ethical. 


Another factor in the price of a CBD product is the business itself. A smaller, independent, family-run business will need to charge more to cover its overheads, whereas a large chain store can charge a lot less as they probably acquired the CBD cheap, and they already make a large profit.  Some bigger chain brand CBDs are totally fine, but it’s always best to read the ingredients and check that most of them aren’t just filler. This is another reason why they can make it so cheap, if it doesn’t actually contain much CBD, then they won’t have spent as much on its production. You can also feel that you’re helping to support ethical practices and sustainable farming when choosing a local, independent CBD business too. 

The price of CBD will vary depending on where you shop, but it’s not always easy to know whether or not something is too cheap or too expensive. To figure it out, try taking a look at how it was created and the amount of product you’re getting. If it’s a 30ml bottle of 1500mg CBD oil and it’s extremely cheap, then it’s probably not going to be the best quality CBD that you can get. However, if you find a pack of CBD gummies that are 5mg a piece, then you can expect to pay a little less. Like everything, the price of CBD will depend on where and what you buy. But don’t be afraid to spend a little more to get a higher quality product. You’ll definitely feel better for it!
