The HIA issued a statement earlier this year warning people about companies mislabeling their products as CBD products when they are simply made from hemp seed oil. Lack of regulation by the FDA brings millions of people into a risky situation trying to decide if they should invest in a hemp seed oil product or a CBD oil product.
Many companies are importing CBD oil that is a natural byproduct of hemp plant processing for other purposes. Much of the cultivation is done with little to no attention being given to organic cultivation and extraction processes and the final product is neither safe nor healthy.
Follow-on posts will be forthcoming making some distinctions between Hemp Oil and CBD Oil.
