Mislabeled CBD Products

Fake Medical Claims, inaccurate amounts & false hope due to mislabeled CBD products sweeping the nation. The history of misleading the masses by mislabeling products and selling them under that description isn’t new. No wonder, the term ‘snake oil salesman’ originated as a result. People have invested their hopes and hence their money for ‘medicines’ that did nothing to alleviate their condition.

The current topic talks about CBD oil products being sold to Americans under the pretext that they contain the CBD oil. However, the concoctions (if they can be called so) contained just trace amounts of CBD (we’ll discuss what that is later), thus wasting people’s precious money and their hopes.

The crux of the matter here is people being sold mislabeled CBD products. Let’s check it out.

What Is CBD And What Conditions Does It Treat?

CBD or Cannabidiol is considered one of the several active ingredients of the marijuana plant. However, it is also known to be derived from the common hemp plant, which is classified as a close species to marijuana plants.

CBD has been known to treat conditions such as childhood epilepsy as well as seizures. However, their most common use is the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.

Cannabidiol is found in various forms such as:

  1. CBD Gummies
  2. Soft gels
  3. CBD oil
  4. E-liquids
  5. Capsules
  6. Balms
  7. Chocolate bars and other edibles
  8. Liquids

So What’s The Matter Here With CBD Products?

The issue here is exactly what we talked about at the beginning of this discussion. The problem is plain and simple. People who are buying CBD products are not getting as much CBD in their products as it is claimed. This has been classified as a case of blatantly mislabeling the product.

And how exactly was this revealed? The CBD product samples were sent to laboratories in the US to test the amount of CBD in the product and the result said there was hardly any CBD contained in the composition of the product. This created an issue of false labeled CBD products and led to people opting out of buying them.

The Mislabeled CBD Products | Beginning Of The Investigation

You can consider this whole issue to be one of the many false labeling of products in the supplement industry. In the case of CBD products, a prominent newspaper took some samples of CBD products and sent them to third-party testing laboratories. The results were shocking and as expected the products did not contain a lot of the core CBD.

So what does this say about the commercial practices of the manufacturers? Naturally, the way these manufacturers are operating is unethical and hence qualifies for a lawsuit. If you too have been affected by any scam or fraud, you can certainly contact Shamis & Gentile, P.A who will help you get justice quickly! Sometimes, they also provide a free consultation.

Lawsuits targeting pharmacy companies for their unethical practices are not new. There have been cases where the people filing the class action lawsuit have been awarded compensation. Shamis & Gentile P.A are experienced in handling such cases and will swiftly deliver you justice.

Why Did This Malpractice Even Occur?

The reason being that the United States government and the Food and Drug Administration does not recognize and regulate CBD. Unlike hemp and marijuana that have been part of debates and hence their legal status verified in different states, CBD is largely neglected by the US government.

As a result, CBD products fall out of the purview of the US government’s department of food and drug approval system.

What Happened To The CBD (Snake) Oil Sellers?

Given that laws and regulations in America are very strict regarding food and medicines, many people realized that they were being duped and hence filed class-action lawsuits against those brands that were selling CBD oil products.

As a result, the manufacturers had to take note of this wave of awareness and retract some of their products from the market. However, the battle still wages on! There are still many of their products in the market, duping hopeful consumers.

What If You Too Are Affected By This?

The answer is just plain and simple. All you have to do is to file a class-action lawsuit against the company whose mislabeled CBD products you have been buying. Remember, that the main clauses under which you can file this suit are waste of money and psychological harm. Shamis & Gentile, P.A. can greatly help you with the matter.
