How to Buy CBD on a Budget
Our health may be our most significant currency. However, maintaining our health can be very expensive. It seems like, in order to support a healthy lifestyle, you need to spend a little to gain a little. The same sentiment can be said for many CBD products out there. Curious how to buy CBD on a budget?
It’s no secret that CBD is the new “it” kid on the block. In a loosely regulated industry, many of the foreparents of hemp-based companies had to cough up a considerable amount of money to formulate high-quality CBD products. These guinea pigs weeded through the legalities, helped fund the science and brainstormed innovative ways to bring CBD to the forefront of the health community. Naturally, these companies are looking to recoup on their investment. Unfortunately for those interested in purchasing CBD products, this means that these items can come with a hefty price tag.
Before CBD FOMO starts driving you crazy, take a deep breath. There are many options for purchasing CBD on a budget. Let us help you find a way to maintain your healthy lifestyle by using hemp extract without breaking the bank.
Research CBD Company Testimonials
The worst thing someone on a budget can do is blow their money unnecessarily. Instead of spending your budgeted dollars on a dud, save up for a quality product in the first place. You should do extensive research on any CBD company before committing.
First, look for any testimonials on the product. When you check out the reviews, don’t just fall for a company boasting a bunch of five-star reports. Read what users are saying. See if any of these firsthand experiences speak to you. Notice if any of the people leaving a review were suffering from the same issues you are currently experiencing. Look over the reviews carefully to see how using this company’s CBD products may have supported other people’s wellness goals.
Also, be leery of a company that has only positive reviews. Even the best product in the world will inevitably have one annoyed customer who left a review because the product came one day later than expected. Many companies will pay for five-star reviews on online retailers. So, if there are hundreds of reviews without anything negative at all, consider it a red flag.
Additionally, when you are doing your research, see if there is a “verified purchase” badge anywhere on the review. This badge lends authenticity to the review. It vouches that the person who is speaking about the product actually exchanged money for it. If a review is unverified, can you really trust it?
Look for Coupons
The CBD industry is one of the fastest-growing markets. There are hundreds of hemp-based companies vying for your attention. In hopes of reeling you in, many CBD companies offer discounts for first-time buyers.
If you see a company that looks interesting to you, try Googling them for deals. You’ll be surprised by how many will offer discounts, often up to 20% off, or waive the shipping and handling costs.
Take Your Time and Join a Mailing List
Don’t just fill an online shopping cart with a bunch of CBD products. Wait a little while. Seek out companies that have products that seem interesting. Then, see if they have a mailing list.
When you join a company’s mailing list, many will send you a welcome greeting. There also tends to be a discount code in that initial email. Take advantage of these savings — they tend to be better than a coupon banner on the website. That’s because the company has already piqued your interest and they’re looking to seal the deal.
Look for Samples
One new approach CBD companies are taking is to offer samples. This incentive is an excellent way for you to try the products you are interested in before you commit to a full supply. You can test them out and, if you like the products, decide if the purchase is worth your hard-earned money.
With more companies offering free samples, it’s easier than ever to buy CBD on a budget. In fact, if you only want to use CBD sporadically, like to assist with stress on a travel day, then a sample will do the trick. Just stock up on free samples and use them as needed.
Decide What You Want to Buy
The way to incorporate these products into your daily routine are ever-changing. Several niches are popping up in the CBD industry which are tailored to specific needs.
For instance, you can get CBD products like the following:
Buy Larger Quantities
Here is another case of having to spend a little to gain a little. From toothpaste to chicken breasts to DVD box sets, companies normally put a discount on bulk items. When you are willing to pay a bit more to get a little extra product, you end up saving money as well. This business practice is no different in the CBD industry.
Let’s take our CBD tinctures, for example. You can purchase any of our four delicious flavors in four different sizes. Plus, they are now USDA certified organic, along with our Jarred salves.
Here are the price points of Joy Organics CBD Tinctures:
- 250 mg = $34.95 (0.14 per mg)
- 500 mg = $59.95 (0.12 per mg)
- 1000 mg = $99.95 (0.10 per mg)
- 1500 mg= $134.95. (0.09 per mg)
As you can see, the more you pay up front, the more you save in the long run. By purchasing larger quantities, you have more product on hand while spending fewer dollars along the way.
Only Buy Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil
If you watch the mainstream news, you might be under the false impression that CBD can fix any problem. However, it’s not Windex, and this isn’t My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
While it’s a beautiful thing that CBD has exploded in popularity, this rise in interest leaves the hemp plant products vulnerable to cheap knock-offs. These practices started to emerge long before the 2018 Farm Bill. In fact, they’re exactly why Joy Smith founded Joy Organics.
Like millions who are gaining interest in CBD today, Joy heard about the potential benefits of hemp products through the news. Desperate to find new ways to support her joints and muscles and get her sleep patterns on track, Joy bought seven brands of CBD products. What worked best for her? A broad spectrum product.
Why Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil is More Budget-Friendly
Hemp has over 100 known cannabinoids. Together, they boost the potency of the other cannabinoids in the CBD oil. When you use a full or broad spectrum CBD oil, you receive the additional potential benefits of all the cannabinoids found in hemp.
At Joy Organics, we carry both full and broad spectrum hemp oil. Our formula is family-friendly because it is 0.0% THC, but it still contains the other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and more found in hemp.
For some, a CBD isolate may be just enough to maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, life is a lot better when you have support from your friends. The same can be said for CBD oil.
When you are buying CBD on a budget, you may be tempted to choose the cheapest option out there. However, buying a bunch of cheaper alternatives that do not affect your system can become more costly than spending a bit more up front on a higher-quality product. Experience the difference for yourself. Shop Joy Organics today. And of course, reach out to our customer support team with any questions.
