It’s a problem we have to solve. What is really in your CBD? When it comes to THC it’s highly regulated and tested when sold through legal channels. The real canary in the coal mine is CBD. Is it organic? GMO free? Actually THC free? And why do the prices differ from $150 to $9.99 a bottle? These are real questions CBD Transparency is working to address.

As a cannabis educator who understands the complexities of the medicines I am often disappointed when I see CBD products sold with false or misleading info and fake claims such as full spectrum. If there were a legitimate certification for transparent CBD products it would mean a world of difference to the entire industry and the people it serves.

So much of the industrial hemp produced oil that is in the marketplace is unsafe. It contains heavy metals and pesticides that could make it unsafe to use. This is a great way for businesses to distinguish themselves from others and to show customers and patients that their CBD is safe to use.
