Why you should not buy CBD on Amazon


CBD has been a hot trending topic for some time now with no signs of slowing down. The industry is making a lot of money and people everywhere are learning and experiencing its many benefits. As a result, CBD products are becoming more widespread and available virtually anywhere, including places like Amazon.

There are hundreds of products to be found on Amazon and other websites, but it is a clear case of buyer beware. In short, there is no guarantee that what you buy on Amazon really contains CBD oil.

CBD is not currently regulated, which essentially means anyone can label their product as containing the compound. You’ll find products on Amazon labeled as “hemp oil extract”, or “hemp oil”, but not CBD because it’s against Amazon’s policy to sell CBD. Therefore, sellers don’t disclose if there is real CBD in their products or not.

CBD online is often labeled as “hemp extract”, which is a common diversion, because CBD oil is derived from a hemp extract so there is truth in that description. However, there is no real guarantee that what you buy online is actually CBD oil. It could be, yes, but it could also be anything else.

One rule of thumb you can follow: If it says it contains “hemp oil,” it’s almost surely not a CBD product. If it says it contains “hemp extract”, it might contain real CBD oil, but there’s no way to be sure.

You should also check the milligram description on the bottle. If you are looking at a “hemp oil” product and the milligrams are not listed, then find another product; it’s not CBD oil. Lastly, look for a COA (Certificate of Analysis) on the bottle. This is a quality assurance check to ensure the product meets its specification.

While hemp oil and other associated products can be healthy and beneficial, if you want real, natural CBD, stop in to Your CBD Store– Where Good Health Hits Home.
