Our Story

The Value And Significance Of CBD Use

The market for CBD has grown significantly throughout the past several years. Because of CBD products’ accessibility, you need to be aware of the quality of the products sold and the misinformation you may be exposed to.

The QuitNet team operates with various medical professionals, organic health experts, talented cannabis farmers, and CBD users. Our team utilizes the vast experience and knowledge from multiple experts to provide advice and recommendations for all consumers.

The main priority that drives the QuitNet team is to focus on the primary uses, restrictions, and allowing unbiased reviews regarding CBD manufacturers.

The QuitNet team operates successfully by upholding strict accountability values for all of its products as they are placed on the market.  All products meet a standard where their information is reliable and accurate to help you make a secure purchase.

The CBD industry today

Cannabis as a whole has been written off as an issue, gateway drug, and a persistent problem. CBD was written off with it and labeled as something not worth time, effort, or research. In developed countries and nations, CBD was seen as a problem and left completely unregulated even as it gained popularity as a supplement for helping with any issues.

While the market went unregulated and unwatched, poor-quality products have now made their way into the system. This can be misleading and even dangerous if the products turn out to be contaminated.

The QuitNet team aims to expose these poor-quality products and manufacturers while simultaneously pushing good-quality products to the population in general, furthering CBD supplements as a solution.

While exposing poor-quality products and manufacturers, QuitNet also aims to bring to light companies that are pushing the boundaries and seeking great solutions to today’s problems. These companies bring together top-notch products and great manufacturing practices to give their customers an excellent experience.

CBD expertise

With all of the misinformation floating around out there, it can be hard to tell what’s true, scientific, and effective. The QuitNet team is dedicated to bringing its audience customers all the information they need to make a safe and effective decision.

Our team of medical health experts and CBD writers spends time and energy researching all the news and reports surrounding CBD. With backgrounds in medicine, health, and wellness, they know how the scientific process works and can bring it to their audiences in ways that are easy to understand.

Each of the users guides that QuitNet creates, offers insight for anyone, no matter their experience. Taking the time to write and create so that anyone with any background can understand is a hallmark of what QuitNet wants to do.

Assessing CBD companies

CBD on its own is a great supplement but even from its growth and creation, not all CBD is created equal. The plants that are grown, practices used to grow and create the products, and the way those products are sold are all varied from company to company.

While there are many and more companies and products on the market that offer great benefits, there’s a wide range of products and companies that are low-quality masked as a higher quality product. What’s written on the label may not line up with what’s in the bottle.

Deciphering which companies are offering a quality product can take time and research and the QuitNet team seeks to do the legwork for you so you can make a great choice every time. Some companies may not package their product right, others start sour, cutting their hemp with other products that can make customers sick. Let us research so you can choose what’s best for you and your family and keep your peace of mind!

Above all else, the quality of your CBD is what needs to be considered. All the labels, advertising, and hoopla in the world won’t make a difference if your CBD isn’t what it needs to be. The QuitNet team is working hard to use our core values to shed light on an industry that can have some shady characters.

Our core values

By following our core values, we shed light on what companies offer quality products as well as others that may be trying to pull the wool over the eyes of their consumers. Each of our core values helps guide our writing and research as we attempt to provide you and your family with the best information and products on the market.

  • Quality

Starting with the processes of growing the plant, quality is the most important factor when it comes to cannabis consumption. If the hemp plants start contaminated, your product won’t be any good. By following the process from seed to product at your home, we seek to find only the best, highest-quality ingredients and products for you and your family.

  • Transparency

Any company can claim they have the highest quality ingredients and products but it’s a whole other thing to prove it. The QuitNet team is always on the look-out for companies that can back up their claims with lab-tested results, organic farms, and products that test well. Having reliable third-party lab results available is a hallmark of a great product and companies that our team trusts time and time again.

  • Innovation

From a relative unknown to a household name, CBD and the industry around it has sparked seemingly overnight. With the market changing and growing so rapidly, companies that continue to develop and innovate are essential. Our team is always looking for companies and products that are different, effective, and tested for quality. By looking to innovate rather than make a quick buck, these companies are on the cutting edge of CBD innovation and continue to move the whole market forward.

  • Corporate mission

Companies that give back to their communities and have a strong sense of corporate integrity are key to moving CBD production forward. By reaching out to those who benefit the most from their products and offering programs for those customers, companies prove that they’re more invested in taking care of their customers than simply making money. This type of corporate integrity is crucial in the CBD marketplace and puts those companies and corporations in the lead.

  • Inventiveness

When you’re in the health industry, whether that’s primary health or supplements, you’ve got to have a good grasp on the way your product works and interacts in the body. CBD companies that are looking to invent and test, making their products more applicable to more people are leaders in the market and help push CBD forward as a natural solution to a variety of issues. By narrowing up and applying CBD to new diseases and issues, companies show they understand how health and science work together. Casting a net too widely can lead you with nothing to show for your effort.

Whether you’re just starting out researching CBD or you’ve been using it for a while, having a team of people to help you research and study out the quality and transparency of a company is a great benefit. Join up with the QuitNet team and follow along with us as we research the CBD products and companies that you’ve come to love!
