When purchasing CBD products for your spa, its important to understand what is in the product and where its ingredients come from. Unfortunately, with the influx of CBD products on the market these days, it's becoming increasingly difficult to determine which ingredients are in which products. As CBD becomes more mainstream, consumers are only getting more confused by inconsistent industry terminology. CBD companies are launching newer and more innovative products daily, but there are no regulations or widely accepted standards regarding how to describe products or ingredients in the emerging industry. Which is why CBD Hacker, an online CBD-focused media outlet, created an infographic to clear the air.

“Our mission is to demystify the CBD industry so that consumers can make educated decisions about the products they are considering,” says Meg Kramer, managing editor at CBD Hacker. "Right now, many people who are interested in trying CBD are making their decisions based on marketing materials from the CBD companies, but these materials don't always explain what different industry terms mean in a way that the average consumer can understand."

The infographic is the first in a series that will break down industry terminology in a clear, easy-to-understand way. It addresses terms that refer to the ways that plant-derived CBD may be processed and discusses the advantages and drawbacks for each type of product. Take a look at the infographic below, and be sure to keep it on hand for when you’re looking to stock your spa with CBD products.
