I'm going to go ahead and start this one out with a bang:
80% of CBD products on the market are likely garbage.
Whether it's a synthetic, or the product doesn't contain what it claims on the label, there's plenty to watch out for. So I wanted to make a blog post for consumers so you know what to look out for.
The number one thing you should request to see from any CBD company would be Lab Results. CBD companies should be using 3rd party lab testing to ensure potency and purity. These tests will show you at minimum the THC and CBD content of the products, and potentially other cannabinoids and nutrients.
When visiting a website that sells CBD products, don't be fooled by the companies making outrageous product claims. With minimal exceptions, CBD generally do not run clinical trials, and are therefore unqualified to make product claims regarding their products. If conducted however, these trials would give the company the right to make health claims, which we do not do in our industry. I would recommend that you look up the ailments that you would like to use CBD for on your own. You can Google something like "CBD for Arthritis" or "CBD for Pain". You should be able to find many published articles about how CBD can potentially help you out.
Mislabeling is a huge issue in the CBD industry. There are a lot of companies claiming "Certified Organic", I personally only know of one company who's own operations are truly "USDA Organic" -certified. If you see companies labeling their products as organic, you can go to the USDA's website to input their information and see if they are truly certified with the USDA. This does NOT mean however, that companies don't use certified organic ingredients, but this should even be taken with consideration if organic products are important to you as a consumers.
At DREEM, we feel that we have an obligation to make sure whether you are using our DREEMCBD products or not -that you as consumers are getting quality products. So double check the information we provided today when shopping for your CBD!

Can one fail a drug test using hemp CBD oil?
Yes, is the long and short of it but there are options to avoid this! Selecting the product that fits your needs is key so do your research or visit a trusted retailer for direction. Remember too, that sourcing and quality matters. One study revealed that up to 70% of online CBD products are mislabeled (1). Yikes! We’re not saying don’t buy online but be a conscious consumer for your health. Luckily, there are lots of local options with educated employees and why not utilize the free advice for your purchases?!
