Which CBD products have too much CBD? Which ones have too little? Which ones have none at all?
While the CBD companies are full steam ahead, so are the deceivers and scammers.
So, how do you know which are legitimate CBD products and which ones are rubbish?
This dilemma also concerned Leafly. However, they did something about it.
Over the last several months, Leafly worked alongside Confidence Analytics which is a state licensed cannabis lab to test a variety of CBD products to see how they measured up. You know, which brands delivered what they claimed and well, which did not.
After some Google searches such as, “cheap CBD” and “best CBD products” they bought 47 products from various sources along with products sold at drug stores such as Walgreens and Rite Aid.
Always room for improvement for the CBD industry
For 2019 Leafly feels it is a fair standard for CBD products to be within the 20% of advertised to be correctly labeled. Anything below that would be considered mislabeled.
Moving forward with the CBD industry, consumers need to insist on closing the gap even more as that 20% will most likely not be good enough for federal rules. 2020 brings the FDA regulation of CBD to light and will most definitely want 100% delivery of what is label promised or shut your doors.
