What is CBD Oil?

Cannabis is a group of plants that includes both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana contains THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical responsible for psychological effects, whereas CBD (cannabidiol) derives from hemp. Unlike THC, CBD has no ingredients to create feelings of being “high.” It also helps alleviate symptoms of several conditions and allows users to resume daily activities without intoxicating features. 

CBD oil is created through cannabis plant extraction. It is then diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut or hemp seed oil and an alcohol or glycerin oil base. CBD oil is a quick and efficient way to reap the benefits of CBD, as it can be dropped orally or added to a drink.

Does CBD Oil Go Bad?

CBD oil is known for its shelf stability and can last some time. Although each brand of CBD varies, premium brands should have a longer shelf life than others. Eventually, CBD oil does go bad. Like with any product worth having, it will, at long last, expire.

How Long Does It Last?

CBD oil can last for 1-2 years. If you find a notable brand you love and use regularly, your CBD oil should not be sitting on the shelf long enough for it to expire. There are steps you can take to ensure a longer lasting life of the product. You can invest in a high quality product, ensure to stick by expiration dates, and properly store your CBD oil.

How to Tell If CBD Oil Is Bad?

Here is where our sources beg to differ. While some evidence shows CBD won’t turn rancid, others do. Some say that it will simply start to evaporate over time, while others say it will look murky and smell skunky. We think it depends on the individual ingredients and process supplied by each brand. While some brands may or may not spoil, any CBD oil past its expiration date will undoubtedly lose its potency.

Are You Supposed to Refrigerate CBD Oil?

Check your bottle for instructions on storage. Some CBD oil brands may support refrigeration. However, most will likely store in a cool, dry place like any other pharmaceutical. As long as it is kept at room temperature away from sunlight or water, your dark colored glass casing should keep your CBD oil safe.
