Choosing Authentic CBD Oil Can Be Difficult Due To Misleading Advertising

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2019 / Consumers shopping for the best CBD oil products must navigate through a maze of confusing and often misleading marketing claims in an attempt to distinguish between authentic CBD oil products and hemp seed oil products. One of the biggest minefields for consumers is the confusion caused by the fact that hemp seed oil products are often marketed by touting the potential benefits typically associated with CBD. Among the more problematic shopping venues is Amazon, where CBD sales are prohibited but where hemp seed oil products are sold at high prices in advertisements peppered with unproven and misleading medical claims, see here https://cbdrevu.com/hemp-extract-oil-sold-on-amazon-is-not-cbd-oil/

The difference between hemp seed oil and CBD oil is huge. Hemp oil, which is often labeled as hemp extract or hemp extract oil, is usually just hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is not pure CBD oil. In fact, hemp seeds contain little of no CBD at all. Seed oils come from crushed seeds while actual CBD is extracted from different parts of the plant, specifically the leaves, flowers and stalks of the plants. But CBD is not extracted from the seeds. Hemp seed oil should be viewed in a similar way as sunflower oil or other seed oils. A good shopper guide helping consumers distinguish between authentic CBD products and competing products of lesser quality can be found on CBDRevu, a popular CBD product directory.

CBD is one of over 100 compounds that could potentially be extracted from hemp. So, when consumers are presented with a product label that indicates ‘hemp extract’ they should be aware that the extract is not necessarily CBD. So, in order to avoid buying grossly overpriced hemp seed oil or a hemp extract product containing little or no actual CBD, consumers must become cautious shoppers. This is especially important since there is no regulatory body that enforces guidelines for CBD product labeling, or that provides verification of the actual ingredients contained in these products. And since the CBD arena, like the entire nutritional supplements market, does not have any real industry oversight policing the ingredients in supplements, consumers are at risk of buying products that do not contain the ingredients they expect. This environment creates ripe territory for unscrupulous marketers.

The popular CBD products ratings and reviews directory, CBDReVu, is a consumer favorite informational portal for CBD shoppers. Consumers can compare brand profiles for most of the top selling CBD products including well-known brands such as CBDPure, NuLeaf Naturals, Green Gorilla, Kannaway Pure, Charlotte’s Web CBD, Endoca, Irie CBD, Sensi Seeds, CBD Essence, Receptra Naturals, Bluebird Botanicals, Hemp Meds RSHO Real Scientific Hemp Oil, Rick Simpson Oil, Elixinol, Restorative Botanicals and more.

CBDReVu offers advertising opportunities to firms in the CBD and marijuana related industries. CBDReVu is not a store and does not sell products, but is an informational website featuring brand profiles of popular pure CBD offerings.
