Ways That Manufacturers Mislabel Their CBD Products

Different tricks are used by fake CBD manufacturers to attract more customers. Some of the common ways that they mislabel their products are listed below:

Fake Health Claims

As CBD has become popular only recently, a lot of people are still unaware of this compound and its properties. So it has become easy for scammers to attract such people by fake health claims. A lot of manufacturers claim that CBD is a “cure-for-all” product. Many manufacturers even claim that their CBD products can cure and prevent serious health conditions including cancer and heart diseases. But these claims have no scientific or medical base. So you should not fall for these traps.

False Product Labels

CBD products derived from hemp plants that contain only 0.3% or less THC are legal. If the concentration of THC is beyond this threshold, then the products will be considered illegal. So to make their products legal, a lot of manufacturers tend to mislabel the concentration of THC present in them.

To avoid this problem, you should get products that come with quality analysis certificates that can help you to find out the concentration of each compound present in your CBD products.


Fake manufacturers do not disclose various important information regarding their products like sourcing, possible contradictions, extraction method, side effects, etc.

So when getting CBD products, you should be careful to avoid such fake claims.
