Buyer Beware – CBD

Buyer Beware CBD

At Passion Brands we are very particular about our product testing and basically doing everything we can to ensure that what we put on our labels and the quantity is actually what’s “in the bottle.” 

Of late there has been a trend now with a lot of celebrity endorsements and a lot of money has been thrown into trying to get you, the consumer, to purchase CBD. This in of itself is not a bad thing assuming what the company is saying they are selling you is actually what you are getting. 

Every company must know their manufacturer and this simply is not the case. You have people buying CBD in bulk from somewhere and seeing some lab report without even knowing if that lab report is actually from the physical CBD they have received and are putting in their products. 

There are claims from consumers and lab testing facilities as well with the following concerns:

  • Product labels are inaccurate or misleading.
  • Products contain other additives that alter your mood.
  • Metals, pesticides, bacteria and solvents from cannabis plants are surfacing in products.
  • Concentrations of CBD are lower than advertised.
  • Many products for sale remain untested.

A study from a popular Network journal reported that more than two-thirds of CBD products tested by researchers were mislabeled—these items actually had more CBD than listed, or none at all, or other parts from the plant, including tetrahydrocannabinol (known as THC), the main psychoactive derived from cannabis.

Other reports from full spectrum products where there can be levels of THC up to 0.3% legally are showing in testing that they actually have levels of 5-10% – that’s not .5 that’s FIVE TO TEN percent THC. 

Because of this, it is super important to find a company you can trust and if you are happy with the product stick with them. Make sure on subsequent orders you check their lab reports for newer batches. Passion brands provides QR codes with the batch numbers on them so you can look these up right on our custom MyCBDtest  page: 

This way with every new order you can check to see what is actually in the product. 

I hope this has been informative and as always if you ever have any questions or concerns we are here to assist in any way possible.
