Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular among the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and lots of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psycho-activity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).

So for CBD products from hemp, check labels to see whether they say where it was grown, and look especially for those from Colorado. Not all products, however, include that information. So in a dispensary or a retail store, ask the staff whether they know where the hemp was grown. And for products purchased online, check the companies' website to see whether it has that information, or contact the seller to ask the same question.
After looking at everything this company has to offer and comparing it to some of the many other online business opportunities that currently exist, I personally can’t recommend taking the risk of jumping in with this company at the present. There are far too many opportunities on the Internet to make money and run a successful online business to risk one that is potentially still a legal gray area.
And those choices are soon likely to become even more confusing: The CBD market is expected to multiply at least sevenfold by 2021, to $2.15 billion, up from $292 million in 2016, according to the Brightfield Group, a market research firm that specializes in cannabis. Even Coca-Cola says it’s “closely watching” the growing interest in CBD and its potential as an ingredient in some of the company’s beverages.
There are other, unexpected, costs. Green Roads lost four banks when their risk-management teams decided that Green Roads wasn't a business they wanted to be supporting. The company's Instagram account has likewise been shut down four times, because of legal restrictions on marketing CBD products. Instead of paying standard credit card processing fees of less than 3 percent, Green Roads pays closer to 6 percent.
Until recently, Hempworx had a page of “testimonials” on their corporate website. It’s since been removed. Likely because the FDA doesn’t look kindly on fake testimonials. Most people assume that testimonials are from satisfied customers who have no affiliation with Hempworx. But this was not the case. The “testimonials” on their website were all from high-ranking affiliates who sell Hempworx. So in reality, these are hardly impartial reviews.
Vape pens produce little smoke and are easy to transport and use—plus they can easily go undetected. But the concentrated oils used in vape pens of CBD might contain a solvent called propylene glycol. When burned at high temperatures, propylene glycol can degrade into formaldehyde, a chemical that can irritate the nose and eyes and could increase the risk of asthma and cancer. To avoid this problem, consider CBD vape pens that advertise “solvent-free oils.”
For one, I live in a state where marijuana is not yet legal, so I was forced to buy it off the street (from friends most of the time), and buying it like that, you never really know what you are getting. You don’t know if you are getting an Indica or Sativa, what strain of plant you are smoking (White Widow, Sour Diesel, etc…), and you still pay an arm and a leg for small bags of it. Not to mention constantly being in fear that I might be pulled over with it on me and end up going to jail for possessing a plant (Ridiculous)!
