CBD Oil Scams Are On The Rise But Consumers Can Protect Themselves

July 02 14:00 2019

New Brunswick, NJ – With the enormous popularity of CBD oil products it was inevitable that a variety of consumer pitfalls would emerge. But there are a number of basic buying criteria that can be observed as well as red flags to avoid in order to help buyers select the best CBD oils for sale.

Basic common sense buying criteria are summarized on CBDReVu, a leading CBD products directory that has been popular with consumers since 2017. The directory displays a star based rating system summarizing how the best-known CBD brands stack up against one another see here https://cbdrevu.com/cbdpure-hemp-oil-cbd/

Some of the red flags to be aware of are factors such as (1) the type of extraction method used to extract the CBD from the hemp plant, (2) whether or not the company offers a refund policy and what are the terms of the refund policy, (3) how the pricing compares to other brands, (4) where is the hemp grown, (5) does the brands primary ingredient receive periodic lab testing for purity and authenticity from an independent testing lab, and more.

One of the biggest consumer pitfalls is the marketing of hemp seed oil as CBD oil. Hemp seed oil is not CBD although many hemp oil companies market their products as if they were CBD by making unproven health claims typically associated with CBD advertisements. A good example of this is found on the giant retailer Amazon. There are many overpriced hemp seed oil products marketed as if they are CBD oils that are only hemp seed oils. Hemp seeds do not contain CBD therefore hemp seed oils do not contain CBD. And, many of these hemp seed oils are very expensive. But Amazon does not permit the sale of CBD products so many of these products are just overpriced hemp seed oils. Other consumer red flags include bogus free trial offers, which are usually tricky auto-shipment schemes. Consumers should also be cautious regarding brands that make unproven medical claims. Most of the medical claims typically associated with CBD are not proven and remain speculative therefore they represent a red flag of caution.
