The CBD industry is booming and everyone seems to be jumping the bandwagon, including scammers and criminals. As a result, fake CBD oil is flooding the market. Fake CBD oils could be as harmless as being mislabeled to containing dangerous chemicals.
But they can also include synthetic cannabidiol. With the first category, you only lose money, but with the 2nd you risk losing your health as well.
News reports of people being hospitalized because of fake CBD are no longer an exception. For example in the three months leading up to January 2018, 52 people in Utah were sickened by a synthetic fake CBD product. 31 of them visited the emergency room.
Mislabeling Happens More than You Think
A full-spectrum label without any other cannabinoids, or 300 mg instead of the labeled 3000 mg CBD, we see it all too often. But did you know that according to a report on Jama (end 2017) 30% of the CBD products are mislabeled like that?
Mislabeling is misleading and you are still fine (you just overpaid) when you get less CBD as mentioned above. But unfortunately, there are also cases where the THC content is way above the legal limit. THC is the impairing component of cannabis and it can make you fail a drug test if concentrations are too high.
That’s why quality CBD oils are made from industrial hemp, which is controlled by the government and contains less than the legal limit of THC (0.3%). CBD can also be made from cannabis but then the THC level needs to be additionally lowered by removing access amounts. This is extra work and often skipped to cut corners.
CBD is a great food additive but we advise you to do your homework before buying it. Look at the lab certificates of a company and read reliable reviews.
