CBD is everywhere these days and its list of possible therapeutic effects is growing daily. Emerging among them is that it could possibly be a natural hemp-derived anti-depressant, and may help patients deal with panic attacks, anxiety, stress, and other psychological disorders. CBD is also being touted as a possible natural anti-inflammatory and may be beneficial for lessening chronic pain and inflammation. The recent passing of the Farm Bill by the FDA in 2018 made it legal to sell CBD nationally at the federal level, and you can now purchase CBD online, although there are still a few restrictions that you need to keep in mind.

About Hemp Oil Companies

The choices of brands selling hemp-derived CBD products today are endless, and each of these companies claims to offer the best quality of industrial hemp available. However, there are some simple, significant mistakes that can affect your reputation as a hemp manufacturer. When you’re selecting a company to purchase CBD from, it’s important to remember a few things before you fully commit. Here are a few common mistakes made by the Best Hemp Oil Companies that you should look out for:

Improper Labeling

Anyone who is considering adding CBD oil to their daily regimen should read the product label to see what's in the bottle so that they can make an educated decision before purchasing. There are brands that might not post credible information on their labels which could ultimately be misleading. Among the offenses is the origin of the hemp, where it comes from, and if it actually contains .003% THC or less, which is the legal limit for non-psychoactive CBD products. Also, the list of other ingredients may be confusing, does it actually contain pure pharmaceutical grade CBD? What is the carrier oil? What are the other ingredients in the bottle? The deliberate omission of product ingredients, as well as exaggerated claims and benefits, can be misleading to the average consumer.

As a hemp manufacturer, it is your responsibility to look into the properties of the hemp being used and to ensure the safety, purity, and potency of each product. Every product should undergo third-party testing and have a scannable QR code on the package that indicates the product is safe for ingestion.

Additives and Chemical Additions

Some companies will resort to purposefully hiding information about the origins of the hemp plant or will use other potentially unsafe fillers and chemicals to adulterate the product to keep their production costs down. These chemicals may reduce the overall cost of production and pad their profits, but can ultimately have damaging effects on the body of the person who consumes poorly grown and cheaply made CBD oil. Hemp Oil Pain Relief Cream and ointments, as well as CBD oil, hemp-infused gummies, coffee, and tea, may also contain these additives. It’s up to you as a consumer to ask your CBD retailer these tough questions and to do some online research yourself about the company and its brand credibility before you make a purchase.

Making False Health Claims

Many products claim to be ‘hemp-derived’ but might not contain any cannabinoids at all. Instead, they may be poorly produced and contain THC levels higher than the legal limit of .003% THC, which could ultimately have ill effects on the consumer. These could include a positive psycho-active response or a feeling of being “high”, a positive drug test with THC levels over .003%, or a feeling of illness from consuming a poorly produced CBD product.

Some companies also make false health claims on the packaging as a ploy to attract more customers. Do your research and make sure you understand that Hemp oil/CBD oil has the potential to help, but do not necessarily heal your current medical issues. False claims are exactly that, promises of reversing health issues are illegal and should be treated as such. Again, ask your retailer for third-party lab results to prove the product is safe, is high-quality CBD, and free of any contaminants that could potentially harm you. Remember, hemp is not a cure-all, it doesn’t cure any diseases, it merely provides temporary relief.

Crucial notes to take

Most states can legally sell hemp oil, hemp-infused ointments, and edibles, without licenses or prescriptions. However, getting good quality hemp is not that easy. You need to research the company, know the origins of the hemp, understand how the oil is extracted, and look for third-party lab test results before you purchase it. Always look for purity, potency, and quality over price, your safety depends on it.
