How Do I Know If My CBD Is Safe and Legit?

The main difference between real and fake CBD oil are the ingredients, quality, and results. There are a lot of companies that cut corners to produce and sell CBD oils that are fake. Vitality CBD is here to help you spot the difference between real and fake CBD oil

Some companies you can rely on, while others you cannot - due to the ingredients they use in their CBD. Fake CBD oils are being introduced to the industry and this creates new fears and panic about health issues these fake oils cause. There is such a difference between real CBD oil and the low-quality counterfeit CBD you might find online and in some stores. 

If you're serious about your wellness and health, CBD oil should be purchased from a legitimate company, like Vitality CBD, not from synthetic hemp oil companies. 

To determine if a product is fake or real CBD, there are four simple steps to take. 

1. Read the ingredients. 

2. Check the manufacturers. 

3. Check if it is verified. 

4. Look at the company website. 

When you read the label, if there are any ingredients that look skeptical, the chances are that the oil is fake. Legit oils will contain terms like "hemp-derived", "full-spectrum", and show the specific concentration of the oil. Real oils will also state the third-party verification of the oil. 

CBD oils typically contain water or a carrier oil. This is normal and acceptable! As long as the correct carrier is used. 

What is Fake CBD? 

CBD oils that are counterfeit and fake contain low-quality ingredients, chemicals and/or harmful additives. Ingredients that do not meet the recommended standards or do not contain CBD properties at all are often found in fake CBD oils. 

Check the label on the CBD products - this will be a good indicator if it is real or fake CBD. If there are no ingredients, concentration, or expiration date listed, chances are it is fake and should not be taken. There are some companies that will try and sell hemp seed oil as CBD oil, when CBD does not even come from the hemp seed, but from the flowers and other parts of the plant. Legitimate companies will provide the important information consumers need to ensure the authenticity of the CBD oil. 

Another factor that makes a huge difference when it comes to the quality of the CBD oil is where the hemp is farmed. Hemp that is grown in Asia and Eastern Europe may contain harmful substances and synthetic chemicals, because the hemp is grown with pesticides. Growing hemp with pesticides produces CBD that is not high in quality and unsafe to use. Make sure the CBD is derived from hemp that is responsible grown here in the United States. 

Real CBD oils have third party testing done. Fake CBD oils will not. Third-party testing is crucial for CBD companies to abide by to ensure the CBD contains the proper ingredients, quality, and potency.
