Poison Control Center concerned about contaminated CBD oil sold at local smoke shops
The Utah Poison Control Center is asking people to be cautious when they purchase CBD products at local smoke shops.
Since early November, the Poison Control Center has received many calls from residents who purchased what they thought was CBD oil from local smoke shops, but turned out instead to be a synthetic cannabinoid similar to the drug SPICE.
The product was labeled “CDB OIL” but was not really CBD oil, which is not associated with the reported symptoms people were having such as:
- Loss of consciousness
- Slurred speech
- Loss of mental state
CBD or Cannabidiol, is the non psychoactive ingredient in cannabis sativa, which can be made from industrial hemp (.3% THC or less) or marijuana (more than .3% THC). In other words CBD can’t get you high since it only has traces of THC which is the ingredient in marijuana that gets you high.
A synthetic drug similar to SPICE, which is known as the “Zombie” drug was in the bottle instead of real CBD oil
While studies suggest that CBD oil has a lot of potential to be helpful in a variety of issues such as the following:
The FDA is quick to warn companies selling CBD not to make any medical claims that CBD cures anything.
With all the new CBD oil companies popping up, the FDA has their work cut out for them to regulate them for the health and safety of consumers.
So buyer beware when it comes to purchasing CBD oil
The main problems is there are a lot of what I call “snake oil” companies out there.
Meaning their products either contain little to no CBD and are ripping people off.
Or in this case are downright dangerous because consumers have no idea what toxins or dangerous drugs could be in the product they are buying that they think is safe.
Safety tips for buying CBD oil
Make sure you research the company online. Go to their website before you purchase any products and try them.
One company I recommend is HempWorx.
UPDATE: But recently I found a company that offers the same identical products as HempWorx but at wholesale prices instead of retail prices. Click here to get your free wholesale prices membership www.CBDWholesale.Global
Make sure the company posts their independent laboratory documents on their website. If they don’t post their lab results, don’t use them.
You want to look for things like making sure their product actually contains CBD.
Make sure there are no toxins, foreign matter, mild, heavy metals, etc.
Make sure the THC is .3% or less to be legal.

UPDATE: www.CBDWholesale.Global has the same exact products as HempWorx, but at cheaper prices. Click here to see your wholesale prices.
Make sure the product is organic. Hemp has a tendency to such up everything in the soil and anything sprayed on it, such as pesticides, mildewcides, herbicides and toxic chemicals.
Our CBD and Hemp Oil is made with organic Hemp which is grown in Kentucky and is free of contaminants.
Make sure the product is Non-GMO
Our products & ingredients are all 100% natural, and nothing is Genetically Modified.
Make sure the product is grown in the USA
Made In The USA
Our products are all Made In The USA and our CBD Oil is harvested from our Kentucky Farms.
Make sure the products are made in an FDA approved facility
Our manufacturing facility is FDA approved and our products contain less than .3% THC.
Make sure the product is full spectrum CBD oil and not a CBD isolate.
Isolates may look like a higher percent, but are less effective without the other cannabinoids to provide the “entourage effect.”
Make sure the products are made using CO2 extraction which is the purest method available.
In summary beware of what you buy. Only buy top shelf products of the highest quality like HempWorx.
