Although CBD is one of the most popular supplements in the market today, products containing the hemp-derived compound are still not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Despite this lack of oversight, the CBD industry has continued to thrive in recent years. Unfortunately, however, upon investigation by a team from NBC 6 Miami, it has been uncovered that the lack of regulatory oversight might be having severe consequences on the quality of products across the industry.
Product Testing and Results
The NBC 6 investigative team led by Dan Krauth purchased products from 7 popular CBD brands and took them to Evio Labs, an accredited testing facility in Davie, Florida that tests for more than 400 companies worldwide including Green Roads. While Green Roads was one of the seven brands tested in this special report, the company was not directly involved in the investigative process.
Prior to testing, all CBD product samples were covered with white labels to prevent identification of brands and any possible bias. Five products from each brand were tested to verify their CBD content. The NBC 6 team then took the lab results and compared them to the advertised content on each product’s label. The results were nothing short of alarming.
