It seems CBD is being sold everywhere out there. From retail stores, to health food stores, 24hrs convenience stores, candy stores, even video stores (LOL).
However, folks are still apprehensive about this natural wonder, which is being advertised as a cure-all elixir. Truth be told it is not exactly a cure for anything and everything, although the available medical research and abundance of testimonies indicate it is quite beneficial for a wide range of ailments.
The fact is, it is unethical and illegal to advertise it as medicine, much less a cure. The FDA has not approved the use of CBD as food or medicine. Still, it is being sold as such.
Thus far, the FDA has issued warning letters to companies illegally selling CBD products that claimed to prevent, diagnose, treat, or cure serious diseases, such as cancer. In addition, some of these products were in further violation of the FD&C Act because they were marketed as dietary supplements or because they involved the addition of CBD to food.
So on one hand we have a powerful substance which is helping a growing number of people with their ailments, with a large body of medical and scientific research backing up its safety and benefits, while on the other hand the governing authorities do not know what to do about it because they claim they haven’t gather enough information yet.
This is why the current situation is being compared to the “wild west” of yesterday. Without proper guidelines and regulations, bogus products are popping up everywhere, but, you can be sure this will not go on for long.
Recently FOX 11 and Dr. Oz put many popular products to the test, as you can see in this video:
The findings are alarming, to say the least. Unfortunately, this opportunity has attracted quite a few poor quality players who are out to make a quick buck. With no industry standards in place and without the guidance of the FDA, the quality of Hemp products is very unpredictable. Unlabeled products have become common, and more worryingly, there are reports of harmful synthetic knock-offs.
This means that consumers need to be very cautious when shopping around for any CBD product, whether it be an oil tincture, capsules, edible gummies, etc. So, if you think Hemp CBD might help you, what can you do in the meantime?
You can definitely find cheap CBD around the corner, but, the old expression “you get what you pay for” applies here, and the risk is huge. You see, there are products on the market today that include everything from illegal doses of THC to prohibited synthetic cannabinoids. Also, perhaps not so shockingly given the loosely regulated nature of the industry, some sellers place a lot less CBD in the bottle than they advertise.
The bottom line is, you need to be careful where you buy CBD oil. To ensure you are getting your money’s worth, look for 3rd party lab reports.
Nowadays, many brands offer third-party lab reports, often referred to as certificates of analysis (COA), and this is the key to knowing what is (and what isn’t) in your expensive CBD product.
In order to verify that a product is pure, free of toxins and able to provide the claimed benefits, there are several analyses that need to be done. Generally, the cannabinoids that are tested are CBD, THC, CBC, CBN, and CBG. CBD is a non-psychoactive component which is responsible for the majority of the health benefits associated with the cannabis plant. Before you purchase a CBD product, you should be aware of the contents and the data regarding the product. Here are some analysis tests to look for before you purchase:
• CBD/THC ratio: It’s desirable for a cannabis or hemp product to have a higher concentration of CBD, and in fact it is required by law that they contain little to no THC (less than 0.3% by volume). Also, it should have minimal concentrations of other potentially psychoactive components.
• Microbiological testing: This is done to ensure that there are no harmful mold colonies or bacteria on the cannabis or hemp plants. If there are pathogens on the plant, they can easily get inside the body if the levels are too high, and cause unwanted side effects.
• Pesticide testing: This is important for ensuring the safety of cannabis and hemp compounds since the plants can be treated with fungicides and herbicides and high concentrations of these can cause significant side effects.
• Residual solvents testing: Lab tests should include an analysis of residual solvents. Solvents are used when the plant is processed and turned into oil, powder or other products, but only for the solvent-based extraction process. Too high concentrations of solvents like propane, acetone, ethanol, and carbon dioxide can lead to unpleasant health effects and turn the product into a highly flammable one.
