Others scams

Too Good To Be True

If you feel like “It's too good to be true”, it usually is. You should avoid companies that advertise their product with “100% absorption”, claim that “CBD oil can cure” disease or symptoms, “no side effects”.


Also beware of MLM companies, those companies sell CBD but also encourage consumers to be their salesman. As a result, most people spend more money buying the company products than making any from selling them.

Fake CBD Products

There is a flood of fake CBD products on Amazon, which are labeled “Hemp Oil”, or claim to have insanely large amounts of CBD. Or CBD bath bombs, hand sanitizers that barely will give any effect.

CBD pillows, mattresses that are insanely high cost; which you can buy a great regular mattress and still have some left to buy Real, High Quality CBD Oil.

To be sure of what you are buying, look for brands that out quality and transparency as their priorities.

Because of those scammers, the real CBD companies took hits and got distrusted from consumers. For more info on CBD and how to find real CBD products, check out our CBD Knowledge blogs.
