CBD, CBG oil, and Delta 8 THC are all gaining popularity year after year, but shopping for these hemp-based products online isn’t easy. Stories of fake products and online scams are all around the web and many bad actors see this trend as an easy way to make money. If you want to make sure you’ll get your money’s worth when shopping for hemp products, here’s what you should do.
Step #1 – Check online reviews
Don’t trust the reviews on a manufacturer’s website — those can be faked. What you are looking for are reviews made on third-party websites and the company’s social media channels. These are harder to control, and therefore more likely to be honest. You may also find that a given manufacturer has won awards for their products in the past, further proving their legitimacy.
It’s also safer to bet on brands that have been in the market for several years — bad actors rarely stay with a brand for over a year, as they constantly create new brands and sites to stay ahead of their negative reputation.
Step #2 – Avoid the hotspots
Buying from online retailers, corner stores, or people in your friend’s network is not the best way to approach the hemp market. Hemp seed oil and CBD can be produced in one’s backyard or kitchen, but it’s very easy for products made in less-than-ideal situations to end up contaminated. After all, even if the people handling the production are careful, hemp plants are notorious for soaking up contaminants from the soil, which often happens when the hemp is grown in unsavory conditions.
It’s safer — and often more affordable — to buy these products straight from established brands that manufacture these products.
Step #3 – Contact customer support
Most legitimate CBD companies will have qualified customer support personnel ready to help customers. If you get radio silence after emailing a company, that’s a red flag. Even if the company is legitimate, unresponsive customer support means they’ll take a while to help you if something goes wrong with one of your orders. Which isn’t ideal.
Step #4 – Avoid unrealistic deals
Whether it be CBD or CBG oil, producing and shipping quality products costs money. It takes advanced equipment, skilled workers, and a lot of time and effort from all the people involved.
All of this is to say that if a given product is priced way below the market average, there’s likely something wrong with it. It might have been diluted, tampered with, be expired, or something of the sort. One common scam is to pack CBD bottles with Hemp-seed oil, which contains no actual CBD and is much cheaper to manufacture.
Step #5 – Avoid companies who overpromise
CBD and other hemp byproducts have been around for a while, but mass consumption of these substances has only recently become popular. This means that there isn’t a lot of scientific evidence to back up the benefits that many people report gaining after using these products. It’s not a matter of whether or not these products have real benefits, but due to the lack of sufficient time to conduct proper long-term studies.
Thanks to that, selling hemp products as a miracle cure to any condition isn’t just unethical, it’s also generally illegal. And any site, manufacturer, or reseller that tries to pass these products around like some kind of panacea should be avoided. After all, if they are willing to break rules on their marketing, where else are they playing fast and loose with regulations?
