BEWARE OF SNAKE OIL BEING SOLD AS HEMP OIL.

BEWARE OF SNAKE OIL BEING SOLD AS HEMP OIL.

Posted by #BeWell on Aug 8th 2019

There is no truer time to say "You get what you paid for," that with CBD oil prices.

Even though the price of CBD products has dropped significantly in recent years, that doesn't mean we should be looking for the cheapest option possible. Of course it's ok to compare prices, but always be suspicious of abnormally cheap prices.

The raw hemp extract that's used to craft CBD products is not inexpensive for business to make or purchase. So when a product costs less than even that raw material they claim is the products, something is usually wrong. Either there is no CBD present in the product or it's made with CBD isolate. That is not bad but when you're specifically shopping for a full-spectrum hemp oil product, misleading labeling can be very frustrating.

Snake oil products can look very convincing on a website. However as soon as you start asking the manufacturer questions, you can quickly sniff out a sketchy company.

To protect yourself from snake oil as you compare prices, always ask for a CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS (COA) and find out where the hemp oil is manufactured from. CBD is still a new supplement. Eventually, it will become much more regulated to prevent snake oil from being the problem that it is today. Until then, either stick to a reputable company or do your due diligence to inspect CBD products before purchase.
