How is CBD Oil Produced

I love eating locally grown food. Lucky for me, here in Vermont we’ve got an abundance of it, and restaurants make a special effort to purchase and cook with local food products. A big piece of the local food movement is about supporting your community and your local farmers. But another essential element involves being aware of where our food comes from and knowing that what we are putting in our bodies is produced in a way that is good for us and for our planet.

Like any other food product, it’s important to be conscious of where CBD is sourced from. Unfortunately, there are many products on the market being passed off as CBD, when they contain no CBD at all. Or, they may contain less CBD than advertised, and are mixed with chemical contaminants. One study found that out of 85 products, 69% displayed an incorrect amount of THC and/or CBD on the label, as reported in the journal of the American Medical Association.

At this time, the FDA has placed no regulations on the sale of CBD products. This means purchasing just any product labeled as a CBD product may be misleading, or potentially dangerous.
