CBD Oil on Amazon: How Sellers Scam Buyers with Hemp Oil

Posted by Ben Ford on

Millions of people are looking to try CBD Oil for the first time and they turn to Amazon.com the everything store for their purchase. 

Unfortunately they are being ripped off using shady and false advertising practices. 

Here’s why you should NEVER buy “CBD” from Amazon…

First and foremost Amazon restricts all of its sellers from listing products containing any form of CBD.

I pulled this right from their terms of service.

So full-spectrum hemp oil like what’s found in OMEGA and DREAM CBD is not allowed.

But if you search for CBD on Amazon… well you’d never know it was forbidden!

Here are the search results for “CBD Oil”

There are pages and pages and pages of choices.

The first thing you may notice is that they're priced super low compared to CBD. 

Amazon is often a race to the bottom on price and quality.

Do you recognize any of the brands here?

Of course not because they would not meet the rigorous requirements that retailers like Pharmaca have for their brands.

An unknowing consumer would think… wow I’m getting a great deal here on CBD compared to what else is available in store or online.

BUT YOU'RE NOT GETTING CBD.

All of these products prominently feature HEMP OIL

Hemp seed oil and CBD are two totally different compounds that come from different parts of the hemp plant, have different makeups, and different benefits.

Hemp seed oil is a cooking oil—along the lines of sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil—in that it’s a cold-pressed extract from seeds.

Hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, is perfectly good seed oil that’s high in antioxidants, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, but contains no CBD.

It has absolutely no cannabinoids in it—not CBD, THC, or CBN.

If you’re trying to get the maximum benefits of CBD oil, hemp seed oil won’t deliver.

Here’s the truth Ben, Amazon doesn’t require any sort of identity testing.

You really can’t be sure if you’re getting hemp seed oil, grape seed oil or motor oil!

Okay it's probably not motor oil, but you get the idea. 

Now let's take a closer look at one of the top products. 

Wow... it's claiming to be 80,000mg of hemp oil.

Yes, you read that right eighty-thousand. 

Let's test that claim.

The average density of most hemp oils is approximately 0.9180 g/mL.

And, we know the weight of the hemp oil claimed to be contained in a 30ml/1oz bottle, (80,000 mg). 

So, by taking the average density (0.9180 g/mL) along with the weight (80,000 mg), the volume that this solution would occupy in a container can be calculated to be around 87 mL.

Not 30mL!

Another way to say this is 1 gram of oil has a volume of 1.09 ml.

Therefore, 80 grams (80,000 mg) of oil has a volume of ~87.2 ml.

This product is IMPOSSIBLE.

80,000mg of oil would need an 86ml container.

That’s 3x the size of this one!

Obviously this is fraud and it’s wrong and consumers are getting ripped off.

Amazon while claiming to be the most consumer friendly business on the planet, actually cares more about their bottom line.

If they did care, there would be a big warning sign on their search pages.

Here’s what I photoshopped for them...

Something tells me you won't be seeing a warning like this anytime soon!

There are three major boxes you need to check when shopping for a CBD product in-store or online.

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil -

This refers to the use of the whole hemp plant, which has more benefits than an isolate.

Transparent Sourcing -

Where is the hemp grown? What strands are used to make the extract?

These questions are important. If a brand doesn't tell you, then they probably don't know!

Third-Party Lab Testing - 

Is there a lab test that shows the number of cannabinoids and terpenes? Is the product truly full-spectrum or is it an isolate (cheaper and low quality) or is it just hemp seed extract (with no CBD)?

You have to look at the third-party lab test each and every time. 

At Natural Stacks we check every single box. 

We only use full-spectrum CBD oil that's CO2 extracted from Berry Blossom and Cherry Wine Hemp.

And our third-party lab tests show you're getting the "whole plant" experience just like nature intended.

Now is the time to join thousands of others who are experiencing better performance, faster recovery and deeper sleep.
