While CBD content is a factor in how effective a product is, no, it is not the most important thing. It is essential to consider a variety of factors, such as other ingredients, other cannabinoids, the presence of terpenes, and the delivery mechanism. A serious amount of CBD isolate in a product is much less effective than a combination of the other ingredients mentioned above and so it is useful to remember to consider as many factors as possible when deciding which product is best for you. If you have any questions please refer to our resources on our site or feel free to shoot us an email.
