Is CBD available on Amazon?

Yes and no, to our surprise with research we found that some company’s do indeed sell actual CBD on Amazon (This is against Amazon's terms of service however). Unfortunately, it is not clear which products do contain CBD, and which do not.

The Problem With CBD On Amazon

The problem is that many companies out there have taken the approach of marketing hemp oil as a CBD product and avoid adding the details of “active cannabinoids” or the term “CBD” in any part of the description as you would normally with CBD. Because of this, you won't know what you are getting unless you get it tested third party lab tested AFTER purchase. The majority of "CBD" oils being sold on amazon are made from the hemp seed itself, not the fully matured plant, where the medical properties of CBD derive from. Hemp Seed produces a relatively inexpensive and common oil. Since both come from the same plant and are often marketed the same, most consumers don't know the difference.

If you read carefully, you can see that most of them don’t include what exactly you are consuming. Below is an example taken from a product listed on amazon. Note this is their description of what they are marketing:

“100% Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil contains 113 natural elements found in the Hemp plant. Our process insures that the highest quality of these elements are maintained in their original form from the plant. Not an isolate.”

Why Is That Misleading?

This approach is a very carefully designed marketing scheme/technique to confuse people who are searching for CBD and stumble upon these products that are marketed on Amazon. It is the unfortunate truth that people have purchased these products on amazon expecting they will be solved of their anxiety, pain, stress, and other claims made within the amazon product pages. Not to mention the source and origin of the ingredients themselves can be a mystery, as well as the how the product was processed itself. 

CBD products found on Amazon can be misleading regarding the use of 'hemp' vs. 'CBD' on labels. Since CBD is against Amazon's selling policy, businesses are trying to market hemp oil as CBD, and the consumer won't know the difference because more often than not they don't have the knowledge of how CBD is produced and processed.
