When dealing with natural plants and their extracts, there will naturally be variations in potency. Calculations at the lab can be off. Measurements can also be erroneous. This does not mean malevolent intent.
With an industry that is roughly 8 or so years old, slightly older if you take into account the years Dixie Botanicals was the sole vendor of CBD products en masse, it has come a long way, and still has a long way to go, as it relates to manufacturers and consistency.
There are product lines that I have thought were neat, but never really wanted to bring to the site. Beverages was definitely one of those.
However, my main reason for not bringing them to the site was due to the shipping costs. Moving liquids around the country and world is costly. And since we sell CBD with free shipping, we would be forced to add some dollars to the price tag of these CBD waters, sodas, teas, etc. to cover the higher costs of shipping. And that would push me out of the market a little bit.
And now seeing that there is still a lot of work that is not being done by some of these beverage companies...
Do you think that is a rational mindset? Would you like to see these CBD beverages in the shop? Do you mind paying a little more for a product that ships for free? Which CBD drink products do you like best?
Perhaps it is an issue with the testing procedures, and the drinks are just fine when it comes to CBD content???
Leave me a comment below. Let me know what you would like to see in the store.
Product mislabeling is still a problematic issue across the CBD industry, according to recent studies. Earlier this month, Leafreport posted results from a test of 22 infused beverages from 20 popular brands. The brand review website found that 54% of the products contained less CBD than advertised. "Point being, it takes more work to produce accurate, high-quality CBD beverages than CBD oils," the report stated. "And as we can see from these results, most companies are not putting in that extra work." The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USDA) also conducted a study of CBD products. Of the 31 products it tested for cannabinoid content, 21 products listed their CBD per serving information on the packaging. Recreational, medical, CBD, paraphernalia & more. Benzinga's cannabis directory is the most complete and up-to-date source for cannabis consumers to identify local brands and retail outlets. "Of these 21 products, seven products (33 [...]
