CBD is quickly taking off in the UK. Hundreds of new businesses have emerged selling the wonderful Cannabinoid – CBD.
BUT are you being scammed? A recent report from The Centre of Medical Cannabis shows some worrying results. They tested products from High Street and online retailers and found 45% had high levels of THC in. NOT OK.
To keep it short and sweet – THC is the compound which gets you “high.” So, you can see the dangers.
Amongst other chemicals, they found little to no CBD in. Imagine paying upwards of £50 for a CBD product and it has 0.00% CBD in!
What’s the solution?
Here are some tips for shopping for effective and high quality CBD.
- Try to stay away low key stores selling very cheap products. The products will be lower in quality and may contain harsh chemicals and no CBD
- Look for expiring dates/batch numbers on bottles. If you can’t see this, then there is a possibility it’s out of date!
- Speak with the seller. A reputable brand should be able to tell you exactly what’s in there products, the type of CBD and how it’s produced. They should also be easily contactable.
- Do your research! Facebook reviews are always a good way to see how the brand is doing from real customers.
- Lastly and most importantly – Certificates of Analysis. If the seller can’t provide evidence that their CBD products have been independently tested then steer clear!
A final note to consider is that CBD companies should not be claiming amazing life-enhancing benefits. It is a natural remedy which has helped people in the past but no claims can be made.
It’s NOT a cure and if brands are telling you differently, then they are probably after a quick sale rather than having your best interest at heart.
