CBD: Avoid Being Swayed by Misleading Product Information and Sales Scams
As the popularity of CBD increases, so does the potential for confusion. Unfortunately, too many people have been taken advantage of by misleading marketing and advertising practices. A few clicks on your keyboard could direct you to hundreds of CBD vendors, all with the same goal of selling their products.
This presents a situation where the buyer, you, need to be aware of some of the misleading information that could result in purchasing an inferior product, a product that you are not pleased with, or a product with no potential benefits. Knowing a few simple details could help you avoid some of the pitfalls and scams that lurk within the shadows of the CBD industry.

Too often people are swayed by the misconception that hemp seed oil and hemp CBD oil are the same product. Unscrupulous vendors of hemp seed oil products may knowingly lead you to believe that hemp seed oil, which costs much less than hemp CBD oil, is as potentially beneficial. This is simply not the case.
Hemp CBD oil is extracted from the stalks, flowers and stems of the hemp plant. The problem is created by retailers who knowingly misrepresent hemp seed products as CBD.
Because of this type of misinformation, it’s important to verify that the product you select is made with hemp oil extracted from the stalks and stems of the hemp plant. Hemp oil contains the natural cannabinoids, plant terpenes, vitamins, minerals and flavonoids of the original plant source. Hemp seed oil, which you can find at your local grocery store does not contain any cannabidiol and does not offer the same potential benefits as a dietary supplement.
This is not to say that hemp seed oil is not a good product. It has its place. Hemp seeds are an excellent protein source; hemp oil adds a nutty flavor when replacing olive oil on your salad and is often used for making soaps and lotions. But if you are looking for a hemp product, look for a product that informs you of how many milligrams of CBD it contains.
Beware of Large Bottles that Seem to Offer More for Your Money
You need to know that the size of the bottle has little to do with the amount of CBD in a product. There are companies who will use vague terms such as “high potency” or “the strongest,” to lead you to believe you are getting a potent product. Often, these vague terms are trying to camouflage the fact that the supplier is not providing any indication of how much CBD the product contains.
The CBD products sold by a reputable vendor will specify exactly how many milligrams of CBD are present in each of the products they offer. You will typically have a choice of several CBD concentration levels, and the prices will rise accordingly. It’s important to know how many milligrams of CBD are in your product before making a purchase.
Choose Product QUALITY over Price
If you are finding a CBD product that is priced drastically lower than product competitors, proceed with caution. The low price typically means a low concentration of CBD, particularly if the seller uses vague terms such as “high potency” without providing any information about how many milligrams of CBD is in the product. These products could contain significant amounts of coconut or olive oil, used to dilute the CBD. Just because a product claims to have CBD, does not mean there is enough CBD in the product to be of any value.
Avoid Products with Too Little CBD Content to Provide Potential Benefits
Once you understand how vendors should be documenting the amount of CBD in their products, you should also be leery of purchasing a product with too little CBD per serving to be of any value. You can determine this by dividing the milligrams of CBD by the number of milliliters in the bottle.
For example, a 30 ml bottle containing 250 mg of CBD contains 8.3 mg of CBD per ml. A milliliter is typically ten drops, depending on the size of the dropper opening. It is also common to find that a dropper full is typically about a milliliter.
Your physiology is unique, the right CBD dosage for you will be different than anyone else’s. When trying to determine your ideal CBD dosage, it is often recommended to start with a small dose and increase your dosage, if necessary, until you discover the appropriate amount of CBD to satisfy your needs.
Avoid Companies That Do Not Provide Product Verification
When selecting CBD products. It’s essential to purchase from a company that values transparency. That means that they are able to provide verification that the products they sell, meet the requirements of the product claims. In simple terms, if you order a 500 mg CBD product, the seller should provide some form of documentation that the product in your bottle contains 500 milligrams. You can be more confident in your product selection if your product provider is willing to share their batch-testing information. Not only should you watch for verification of the CBD content, but also the levels of THC. To comply with federal laws, the THC content of hemp-sourced CBD needs to be 0.3 % or less. City Hemp Rx products contain Zero THC. A reputable vendor will also be transparent in their extraction methods and the quality of their hemp plants. It is imperative that you only buy CBD that is extracted from non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp.
Avoid Any Company Who Promises a Cure
Although CBD is a potentially beneficial dietary supplement, it is not a cure or a medical treatment for any medical conditions. CBD (cannabidiol) is a dietary supplement that may provide benefit to your body by supplementing the processes of your endocannabinoid system.
Your endocannabinoid system is the network of neurotransmitters and receptors that facilitate the communication system between your body and your brain. CBD is a dietary supplement that has the potential to mimic the effects of the neurotransmitters (endocannabinoids) produced by your body. The potential benefits of CBD supplementation are based on laboratory tests, animal studies and the testimony of those who use CBD products. There are no medical claims made at this time.
Protect Yourself by Purchasing from a Trusted Source
It’s important to be aware of some of the misleading information that could result in purchasing an inferior product. Unfortunately, there are too many unethical people willing to take advantage of those who are still learning about products. Once you understand the potential hazards, it’s much easier to find what you are looking for through a trusted supplier.
