Buyer Beware of Mislabeled CBD

It’s official: CBD has entered the mainstream of American life

In recent events its become increasingly important for buyers to beware of mislabeled CBD products. We've seen amazing results from research studies as well as many companies passing off black market CBD as the real deal.

  • A recent Gallup poll states that one in seven U.S. residents now use CBD to ease the stress and discomfort of modern life.

  • The Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation has studies on their website demonstrating the effectiveness of CBD for stress, muscle recovery and more. The foundation has urged the FDA to speed up research on CBD, as large numbers of  joint ache sufferers are turning to CBD to ease movement and stress.

  • Testing of 84 different CBD products shows that CBD bought from the wrong places can contain very little CBD, or too-high amounts of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

    This is never the case at CBD Remedies, where all products are thoroughly tested by third parties. Keep reading to learn more about the bad batches of CBD from poor manufacturing practice.

Here’s a roundup of the latest news about CBD: poll from August shows that one in seven Americans now use CBD. It’s most popular among younger generations, although it’s catching on in all age groups:

  • Most people used CBD for pain relief - 40%.

  • Around 20% use it for anxiety. The study found that women are more likely than men to use CBD for stress, muscle recovery, pinched nerve (25% of women versus 14% of men.)

  • Overcoming sleepless nights was the reason that 11% of those polled used CBD. Men were more likely than women to use it for sleep (15 percent of men versus 8 percent of women.)

  • While people are becoming more aware of CBD throughout the country, the highest percentage of CBD users come from the independent-thinking American West.

CBD has no Serious Side Effects

Since CBD has demonstrated no serious side effects, that’s great news for people dependent on addictive pain killers and other pharmaceuticals. The already massive number of CBD users is expected to grow by 49 percent by 2040, as the generation ages.

Cannabinoids like CBD can help a wide range of stress and joint ache sufferers. CBD is helpful for calming the mind and nervous system- we all feel pressure from the push and bustle of modern life. CBD has great potential in easing anxiety and multiple anxiety disorders, the NIH reports.

Depression can be like a black fog that descends at times. While you should consult your doctor and not stop taking prescriptions without medical advice, CBD can be a helpful supplement.

Studies show it can reduce symptoms linked to depression and help lighten the load. Buying CBD from unreliable sources can cause you to waste your money or risk getting higher levels of THC than advertised, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Bad Manufacturing Practices & Mislabeled CBD

Independent scientists tested 84 products from 31 companies. The results show that it’s more crucial than ever to choose where you buy your CBD carefully, The results showed:

  • 42% of products were under-labeled- meaning that there was more CBD and/or THC present in these products than indicated on the label. Most often, it was undisclosed THC that was found. Scientists were not concerned about greater levels of CBD, as there are no harmful effects known from higher doses of CBD. However, the report stated that higher than advertised levels of THC could produce “intoxication or impairment, especially among children.”

  • 26% were under-labeled. That means they contained only weak amounts of CBD. The study found that this could erase any benefits from the CBD, making the product useless. In many cases, there was less than 1% CBD in the product.

  • Only around one-third of the CBD products tested were accurately labeled.
