How We Differ from the CBD Sold on Amazon
The CBD market can be a scary place. The industry is unregulated, as many people are aware. Without the intervention of the FDA to regulate the growing practices of hemp, the ingredients in CBD products, and other things, consumers must shoulder the risk of buying CBD.
As the market expands, there are more and more brands out there. Most of them are trustworthy, reliable, and sell high-quality CBD. But there is often a risk of being scammed. Often, these scams aren’t necessarily dangerous, but it can be embarrassing to spend your hard-earned money on a product that doesn’t work.
For this reason, we would advise that you avoid buying your CBD from Amazon. In this article, we will be explaining a little bit why buying CBD from Amazon can be so harmful.
Why Buying CBD Oil from Amazon is a Bad Idea
You might not realize this, but Amazon has a policy against selling CBD. Despite the fact that the 2018 Farm Bill legalized the nationwide growth of hemp and low-THC CBD products, Amazon still recognizes cannabidiol as “drugs and drug paraphernalia.” Such products are banned on the site.
As a result, sellers on Amazon are unable to sell CBD oil. Nevertheless, typing ‘CBD’ in the search bar will yield plenty of results. When you read the product descriptions, it will be revealed that these products contain “hemp extract”. So, what exactly does this mean?
By now, you are probably aware that CBD is extracted from the hemp plant. ‘Hemp extract’ therefore implies that the product contains CBD, and this is simply a clever trick to avoid letting Amazon know that banned substances are being sold.
Sadly, there is no way for you to guarantee that this is the case. There is every chance that the product could just be regular old hemp seed oil. While hemp seed oil also comes from hemp, it is not the same as CBD oil. It is produced by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant to make an oil; but this oil contains little to no cannabinoids.
Looking at the price, you might assume that it must be CBD oil. After all, hemp seed oil is fairly cheap, while CBD is often at the other end of the spectrum. But this is exactly how the scam works – consumers buy this Amazon ‘CBD’ oil assuming that it contains CBD, when in actual fact it is just plain old hemp seed oil.
The hemp seed oil scam, along with potential dangers in Amazon CBD products such as chemical fertilizers, is a good reason not to buy your CBD oil from Amazon. There are a few unwritten rules to buying CBD online, and Amazon ticks hardly any of the boxes.
What You Really Need to Know About Buying CBD Online
When buying any CBD products, there are some things you need to look out for. Perhaps the most important is lab reports, preferably conducted by a third-party laboratory.
Lab reports confirm what exactly is in the product, including the exact cannabinoid content. This will verify whether the product is safe and legal, showing you the THC content as well as the presence of chemicals or heavy metals. By checking out lab reports, you can feel confident that you are buying a legitimate CBD product.
You should also look out for detailed information regarding each product. Where was the hemp grown? How was the CBD extracted? The entire process contributes to the quality of the resulting oil, and so it is important for the consumer to be aware of what they are ingesting.
Look out for hemp that was grown either in Europe or here in the USA. These areas have strict regulations for growing hemp and will definitely produce plants of the highest quality. Then, look out for companies that use high-quality extraction methods such as supercritical CO2 extraction. This is widely regarded as the best method because no solvents are used, and therefore there is no residue in the final product. It also keeps most of the plant compounds intact.
If you’re trying to buy CBD online, you’re going to find all this information on an official website – not on Amazon.

12 Amazon CBD Lab Results That Will SHOCK You
Have you ever bought CBD oil from Amazon? Well, the results are in. You probably did NOT buy CBD oil from Amazon.
In this article, we’ll share the lab results of 12 top-performing Amazon CBD products and provide you with the resources you need to be sure you’re investing in high-quality products.
Why it’s important to us that you’re informed
Our Insider Scoop Newsletter has been taking a deep dive into the world of supplements on Amazon as we perform our own investigations into the goings-on of this industry-dominating giant. Through taking a closer look, we’ve found that the Amazon marketplace is filled to the brim with businesses misleading consumers for their own gain with products that are mislabeled and certainly not CBD.
Here’s more on why you should be in the loop:
- Amazon has become almost like a reflex for Americans today, we collectively need to exercise more caution.
- As a family-owned CBD company who invests a lot of time into ensuring the quality and purity of our products, we think it’s only fair that all brands are held up to the same quality standards.
- With high-quality CBD’s immense potential to help people, it’s time to crack down on those who are cashing in on misinformed consumers.
A closer look at Amazon CBD oils
CBD oil is not allowed to be sold on amazon
If you were to head to Amazon right now and type in, “CBD Oil”, over 10,000 results would populate the page. But you’d soon notice that they aren’t labeled, CBD oil. They’d instead say “Hemp Oil”. This is because CBD oil is not currently allowed to be sold on Amazon.
This is a common labeling tactic that CBD manufacturers use to make sure they have have a product that is always in compliance with an ever-changing market. So, when you see hemp oil on Amazon, it could mean one of two things:
- The bottle possesses oil from hemp and hemp seeds and has no CBD (most common)
- The brand is using the word ‘hemp’ in place of ‘CBD’ for legality, though it is indeed, CBD oil
While we know this is a confusing distinction, whether labeled as hemp oil or CBD oil, all Neurogan products have always been and always will be full-spectrum CBD products.
That being said, our case is not the norm. Even though we temporarily labeled our products as hemp oil while selling on Amazon, we always had the lab results to back up our products.
How manufacturers are cashing in
Now, imagine a manufacturer is selling hemp seed oil in 2010. The product would be purchased by the few interested in using the oil for cooking or beauty purposes.
But now in 2019, hemp-based products are all the rage.
Manufacturers selling that same hemp seed oil product now can simply omit the word “seed” from the product labeling and dupe people into thinking they’re buying a CBD product from Amazon.
In turn, these manufacturers quadruple their margins from the traffic of consumers who don’t know any better.
