CBD products can be purchased nearly anywhere, including gas stations and cafes. Of course, those who are looking for high-quality and reliable products may want to reconsider their decision to do so.
The trouble is, many products lack oversight and regulation, which means that there are no guarantees that the products that one purchase are made with trustworthy and reliable methods. While individuals run this risk everywhere, gas stations and cafes may be particularly prone to low-quality standards.
For instance, according to an Inverse article,
“CBD products you find at your local cafes or gas stations are inferior products made with outdated extraction techniques and little to no quality control.”
Even the FDA has questioned the safety of CBD products.
Ned Staples, the FDA Commissioner, stated,
“When hemp was removed as a controlled substance, this lack of research, and therefore evidence, to support CBD’s broader use in FDA-regulated products, including in foods and dietary supplements, has resulted in unique complexities for its regulation, including many unanswered questions related to its safety.”
