CBD oil has become one of the hottest new products on the market today. In fact, annual sales of CBD oil-containing products in 2018 were almost 600 million and are estimated to be growing at a rate of more than 107 percent per year.
Before 2017, CBD products were only available in health food stores and in several doctor’s offices. The market has since exploded and CBD products are now available in natural food stores, nationwide grocery stores, beauty salons, nail salons, convenience stores and even gas stations. But are these products made of safe components?
First of all, let’s take a look at what we mean by safe CBD oil. Some reports indicate that as much as 40% of CBD products on the market have tested positive for heavy metals such as lead and arsenic, concentrated chemical pesticides, bacteria, fungi, toxic mold, THC, and many other hazardous contaminants. Most people would agree that products containing these contaminants would be considered unsafe.
Most of these dangerous CBD oil products are grown and manufactured in China, Mexico, and many third world countries that do not oversee the products they sell.
One of the most common and dangerous contaminants commonly found in contaminated CBD products is chemical pesticides. These chemicals are used to kill insects and other organisms that may be harmful to the plant. According to the Center for Toxic Action, “Pesticides are associated with a wide range of risks to human health – from short-term effects such as headaches and nausea – to more serious health problems such as cancer, damage to the reproductive system and endocrine disruptions.”
Consuming a CBD product can be very dangerous if it is contaminated with pesticides.
The Safest Solutions
The best and safest products on the market are those where the hemp is grown in the United States and the oil is produced at a grocery plant. Of course, it must be tested by a reliable external facility. If you are looking for safe CBD oil with consistently high quality and CBD levels, look for US-based suppliers that only use hemp grown in that country.
In addition, look for suppliers whose products are thoroughly tested for purity and quality. As an added security measure, many of these manufacturers are regulated by state agencies.
How is it Abroad?
As an example of this kind of state surveillance, Colorado-based CBD producers must register with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). They then have to meet several requirements, such as showing that the industrial hemp produced at this facility does not contain more than three-tenths of the 1% THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana that causes you to “get high”.
By purchasing from suppliers located in Colorado, you can be sure that CBD products such as bath bombs, CBD drops, gummies, gel capsules, soothing creams, ointments are safe to consume. The situation is similar in Poland. To trade, you need a procedure that is issued by a specific office.
