The Best CBD Products Of 2019 That Are The Real Deal

CBD oil is used for all kinds of things, like pain, anxiety, acne, sleep and even your sex drive. But, if you don’t want to buy your CBD products on Amazon, don’t give up your hunt for legitimate CBD just yet.

For folks who don’t know, CBD — or cannabidiol — is the non-psychoactive ingredient in the marijuana plant. The chemical that is responsible for weed’s psychoactive effects is called THC — or tetrahydrocannabinol — which is mostly removed from CBD products. The biggest difference between CBD and THC? THC gets you high, while CBD doesn’t.

Though a quick search for CBD products on Amazon serves up more than 5,000 results for expensive tinctures, fancy lotions and overpriced bottles of gummy bears, Amazon’s selling guidelines prohibit the sale of CBD and products containing cannabidiol.

That means most of those products that come up on Amazon when you search “CBD” probably aren’t the real deal. Instead, they’re most likely made of hemp oil, sometimes called hemp seed oil, which is extracted by cold pressing hemp seeds, so it doesn’t contain THC and contains very little CBD, generally.

Authentic CBD products, from bath salts and gummies, to pet treats and vape cartridges.
