When it comes to purchasing edibles online or anywhere at all, the process can be very overwhelming, right? There are a lot of brands and products with several textures, flavors, strengths, effects, and reaction times to choose from.
How in the world do you make the best choice in buying these?
When you finally select a product, there will be a need to know how to purchase it, where to purchase it, and most importantly – it needs to work!
Don’t you know where to begin? Don’t worry.
Let’s go over all of this in more so you are prepared to buy the best CBD edibles online.
Is It Safe To Buy CBD Edibles Online?
The process of purchasing CBD edibles online is actually very straightforward, particularly since hemp products were legalized in 2018 with the passing of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018. For this reason, it is completely safe to purchase CBD edibles, like the gel capsules pictured below, online.
Look for a great company, a great product, and make your purchase online. There are some thing’s to look out for, though. Let’s go ahead and review what the indicators are, and how to get the best bang for your buck when it comes to buying CBD.
Quality Control for CBD
Despite being somewhat harmless, there is no state (or even federal-level) quality control for CBD edibles or other products. While the government figures out the best methods for making these programs, you need to be able to determine what the best items are on your own.
Product testing is now state-controlled and differs by state, varying from non-existent to strict. Now, product testing is state-controlled and differs from state to state. For example, in California, the law states that a licensed testing lab shall provide a certificate of analysis for each lot, with supporting data. These are known as third-party testing facilities.
They are vital to making sure you get a good quality CBD product of any type. We’ll get deeper into these later.
If you can find several certifications from an online company (real certifications), you have likely found a great online source. Here are some examples of New Phase Blends certifications, so you have something to compare other CBD companies to:
Whether CBD brands are adhering to these certification standards seems unlikely because enforcement is almost non-existent these days. Don’t be afraid to call a company to ask about their certifications either. Most great CBD companies are very easy to call up. If you cannot find a phone number on the website, or have trouble reaching someone, chances are it’s not a reputable source of CBD. Stay clear!
Avoid Homemade CBD Products
Some local dispensary & homemade edibles often have basic, loose packaging and even less product information on the label. There are even more unknown (but not necessarily harmful) factors. Unless you have personal experience with the with the individuals making the homemade edibles, it may be better to steer clear of them.
Some mom and pop shops even make their own CBD, and while it may be ok, unless it has all of the proper labeling…please avoid using it. You are better safe than sorry.
The CBD industry is filled with companies trying to make a quick buck. For this reason, you NEED to buy from a reputable source. Look for things like money-back guarantees, GMP certifications, and very detailed ingredients lists with a third-party certificate of analysis.
This is normally accessed via a scannable QR code. It links to a lab report of the exact CBD content of that product batch.
Where Can I Purchase CBD Edibles Online, Legally?
Purchasing CBD online is now federally legal within the United States. You do not need any federal issued card, or anything else like this to qualify for purchasing. It’s as simple as finding a product line you like, and buying it online. Reputable CBD companies will take all major credit cards, easily.
Keep in mind there are a few states with somewhat different CBD possession laws. Read through our CBD state by state articles to double check your state laws before buying, just to be safe.

How Do You Know If an Online Retailer is Legitimate?
Use your best discretion; if you are still not sure, perform some background research on them. Note that bad CBD websites commonly:
- Operate a site that does not look official/professional
- Have no phone number easily accessible on the website
- Offer unfamiliar edible brands
- Give prices too good to be real
- Promise to ship anywhere around the world
- Exclusively accept online currency (bitcoin)
We greatly advise keeping away from such poorly ran companies by all means. They likely sell hempseed oil (which is NOT CBD OIL). Buying CBD edibles online is tricky in this sense.
Conclusion | Buying CBD Edibles Online
As we’ve mentioned earlier, buying CBD edibles online or at the storefront could be a bit stressful and feel overwhelming. Before you purchase any CBD edible online, you need to be sure the online retailer is authentic. Look for certifications, phone numbers, and any type of guarantee you can on the legitimacy of their products.
Email them and ask for a coupon code, too. Most of the time they will give you 10-15% off your first order. CBD is not cheap, and spending your money on a bogus CBD product would be horrible. We hear horror stories like this all the time, unfortunately.
