False labeled CBD Products

The case with false labeled CBD products seems to be the usual ‘pulling-wool-over-eyes’ practice carried out by supplement and food companies. In this case, health supplement producers who offer food and supplements containing CBD oil, have duped customers by showing higher amounts of CBD oil in their product than there is. This, in turn, influenced many buyers to buy their health supplements and food products.

This has not only cost their customers a lot of money but also put their health at risk since many of these products have unknown products as fillers in their supplements. The supplement makers never disclose this filler composition.

Rising Customer Awareness | False Labeled CBD Products

It was only when some samples of popular supplement brands containing CBD oil were sent to laboratories for testing, by newspapers, it was revealed that the actual amount of CBD oil in the supplement/food was way lesser than what was shown on the box.

As a result of this exposure, people began questioning the credibility of CBD oil food sellers. The false labeled CBD products have become a matter of contention between companies and consumers.

People are considering hiring competent attorneys such as Shamis & Gentile, P.A for filing litigation against food and health supplement makers who claimed to have more CBD in their food products, than there was.

CBD Oil Claimed To Cure Many Health Issues

Recently, CBD oil has been soaring in popularity as an alternative and natural medicine for various health ailments. CBD is a type of cannabinoid which is derived from cannabis or the marijuana plant, although many products contain CBD oil derived from hemp plants.

Many people have reported that CBD oil has helped them with issues such as pain, by relieving it effectively without any side effects typically known for narcotics as well as other drugs used for pain management. Some medical journals also have reported that CBD oil can also cure serious health ailments such as acne and even sinister health problems like cancer-related health issues.

CBD oils have also been reported to help with neurological issues such as depression and benefit the heart and help in substance abuse cases as well.

No wonder there have been many false labeled CBD products.

CBD Oil Seems To Be The  New Medical  Gold

The number of health disorders cured by CBD oil is numerous. And it’s not just the quantity, but also the quality of the oil that it treats the major amount of disorders ranging from depression to cancer-related disorders. There is hardly any medicine that compares with CBD oil, given that these claims are true. If CBD oil provides these benefits, then humanity has certainly made a big medical discovery.

The false labeled CBD products are no replacement for the real one.

What CBD Oil Is Not

There can be a possible major confusion about CBD oil that can give someone a high, given that it is derived from the hemp plant. However, this is far from the truth. The substance that gives the hemp plant its property that causes one to go high is called THC. THC is not present in the CBD oil. This means that the oil component is separate from the component that causes people to feel a high sensation after the consumption of marijuana.

Misleading Consumer With False Labeled CBD Products

The statements made by popular CBD containing food supplement makers were alleged to be misleading by their customers since an independent lab testing proved that it hardly contained any CBD. One possible reason why supplement and pharma companies add so little CBD to their products is that it might be so medically valuable as per the claims of some of its users.
