CBD Oil on Amazon Is Misleading
You can’t buy CBD oil on Amazon, but you can find ambiguous products labeled as “hemp oil” that are being sold. It’s important to note that any hemp oil sold on Amazon is typically “hemp seed oil,” which is not the same as CBD oil.
Hemp Oil or Hemp Extract Oil on Amazon is NOT CBD Oil
A cruel hoax perpetrated on consumers, many of whom are looking for relief from real problems.
The claims are bogus, unsubstantiated and a load of crap.
CBD shoppers on Amazon shoppers must read the Amazon advertisements carefully.
When they do they will easily see the scam.
It will be clear that these products are NOT authentic.
The ‘hemp oil’ and hemp extract oil’ products offered on Amazon are not the real thing.
These sellers are attempting to cash in on the popularity of CBD as they fleece unsuspecting consumers.
Most of these Hemp Oil or hemp Extract Oil products for sale on Amazon are just hemp SEED oil.
Hemp seeds at best contain minimal, insignificant amounts of CBD.
It is bad enough that unscrupulous Amazon Sellers are promoting this overpriced garbage on Amazon.
Worse yet is that Amazon allows it!
First, Amazon does NOT allow the sale of CBD oil products.
Follow this link below and read for yourself. Amazon specifically prohibits the sale of CBD (also known as cannabidiol) on the website.
|Note: Any products that contain CBD and are for sale on Amazon are doing so under the table. This also means that these products are even less regulated than traditional CBD oils.|
So, if you see a product that looks like it may be CBD, read the product label and the Amazon ad very closely. Be sure to read carefully.
Most all of the products masquerading on Amazon as CBD products contain some kind of hemp extract and/or just hemp seed oil. Often these products indicate that the product contains ‘hemp extract’ or that the product is a ‘full spectrum’ product.
But, there are over 100 possible extracts that could be extracted from hemp and the extract the label is referring to could be any of the 100+ so there is no logical reason to assume the extract is CBD.
And the term ‘Full Spectrum’ is completely misleading. Full Spectrum is a meaningless term that could mean anything. There are no rules mandating how the term ‘Full Spectrum’ is to be used. The term ‘full spectrum’ is strictly being used by to mislead people and trick them into buying worthless crap. The idea is to trick consumers into thinking they are buying authentic CBD at a low price. But, the fact is that consumers who buy these products are buying grossly overpriced hemp oil or hemp seed oil, which should not sell for more than $5 or $6.
Amazon sellers are selling hemp seed oil and bogus CBD products for $30, $40, $50 per bottle and higher when these products are mostly (not all) just cheap hemp seed oil products most suitable for frying of possibly on salads. But they certainly do not have any therapeutic value.
And worse yet, many of these Amazon ads state that these imposter products will help various medical conditions.
If you want genuine CBD products, it’s best to buy from trusted brands rather than large online marketplaces like Amazon.
What to Look for In a Real CBD Brand
CBD has become increasingly popular within the past few years. Many brands and products have emerged that make it difficult to discern who sells high quality CBD, and who is trying to make a quick buck. Here are a few things to look for when assessing whether or not the CBD company is legitimate and credible.
- American grown hemp—With recent legislation changes that allow farmers to cultivate hemp in several states, we recommend buying CBD products from companies that use hemp grown on U.S. soil. Foreign-sourced hemp has been used for many years, but it’s hard to determine exactly where the hemp extracts are coming from, or if the crops were planted good soil conditions.
- Third-party lab testing—Before you buy from any CBD company, make sure you can readily find or request lab test results for their CBD products performed by a third-party lab. These tests search for the presence of any harmful solvents, pesticides, and heavy metals. They also determine the amount of CBD and other cannabinoids within a product.
- Full spectrum vs. isolate—Once it’s extracted from hemp, CBD oil can be distilled to form an isolate. Isolate products only contains cannabidiol with no other hemp extracts. Alternatively, there are full spectrum hemp oils. When a CBD product is labeled as full spectrum, it contains other terpenes and cannabinoids that may produce an “entourage effect.” This allows multiple cannabinoids to work together for a synergistic effect on the endocannabinoid system.
