CBD Scams are happening daily
With the popularity of CBD rising fast there will be people trying to take advantage of people seeking relief. It’s unfortunate that this happens, but there are always things we can do to protect ourselves.
The Free CBD Scams
“Only the mousetrap has free cheese” is a good proverb to remember when tempted to take a company up on an offer of “Free CBD”. There are two main reasons these CBD Scams are created.
Some “Free” offers are actually a hidden subscription agreement. You give your credit card, they charge a small shipping and handling fee for the “free bottle”. What they don’t tell you is in the fine print you are agreeing to a subscription. The next month they charge you again, and again the next month.
THE “NOT WORTH THE BOTTLE IT’S IN” CBD SCAMs
Some “Free” offers are making money with shipping and handling. If you pay $12 for shipping and handling for a “Free” bottle of CBD you might be getting what you paid for.
A glass bottle, stopper, and label might cost $1. Fill it full of hemp seed oil from the grocery store that only costs you about twenty-five cents, and $3 to mail it puts the total cost at less than $5. So the company sending you “Free” oil makes over $7 with every “Free” bottle they mail out.
TOO MUCH FOR TOO LITTLE CBD SCAMs
When purchasing CBD it’s all about the milligrams you get. It doesn’t matter if you believe in isolate CBD or Full Spectrum Whole Plant CBD or even in Marijuana or Hemp CBD… at the end of the day any CBD you buy make sure you know what you are paying for the milligrams of CBD you are getting.
A large 3 oz bottle of CBD for only $49.99 might seem like a great deal. But if that bottle only contains 100 milligrams of CBD in those 3 ounces you are actually paying fifty cents a milligram for the CBD.
Another 2 oz bottle of CBD sells for $199.95. Much more expensive for a smaller bottle, but this bottle contains 3,000 milligrams of CBD. That’s $199.95 divided by 3,000 that gives us .06 cents per milligram. That’s a pretty good deal if you can get it for pure CBD oil.
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE… IT PROBABLY IS
As miraculous as the hemp plant is, remember if someone is trying to sell you something and your gut tells you this is too good a deal… follow your instincts.
There are plenty of reputable Hemp CBD companies that are producing quality products at a fair price. Do your research and don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and call a company. I’m always impressed with the Receptra Naturals customer service team if you have a few minutes give them a call if you have hemp questions. They are in Denver Colorado and can be reached at 303.CBD.1663 (303.223.1663).
There are enough wonderful people who believe in the power of hemp to heal that are producing great products it’s likely you can find a quality product that is right for you.
