CBD Oils and Supplements Reviewed by ConsumerLab

hi this is dr. Todd Cooperman I'm the president and founder of ConsumerLab dot-com and I'm here to talk today about CBD supplements CBD oil now CBD is a compound found in hemp and marijuana which is also hemp it is a cannabinoid there are other cannabinoids in hemp such as THC which is psychoactive CBD is not believed to be psychoactive but has other potential uses other than affecting your behavior or mood so CBD products are now widely available online however technically they are illegal dietary supplements really do not include CBD technically in the government the FDA has said that because CBD is being developed as a drug and it actually may be approved in 2018 later in the year as a drug as a result of that it really is not a supplement nevertheless it is being sold it can be purchased and what ConsumerLab did because we've had letter lots of requests from from our readers in terms of what's really in CBD which ones are most cost effective what's the quality of these products we went out and purchased a number of popular CBD products and tested them for the amounts of CBD and THC as well as for contaminant potential contamination with heavy metals we've published a report it's on consumer lab calm now and you can access that if you remember it's $42 a year we have reports on every type of major supplement on the market at this point we've been doing this since 1999 in terms of CBD what we found is first of all the products can contain fairly little in terms of CBD as little as 2 milligrams per dose for serving really up to about 22 milligrams so a big difference about a tenfold difference there however it's important to keep in mind that that's a lot less than what's being used in Nicolle trials with CBD where they're using hundreds of milligrams per day often 500 or more milligrams per day and that's being shown to be effective particularly in terms of reducing the number of seizures in people with certain forms of epilepsy that are different to difficult to control with conventional drugs for for epilepsy there isn't really a lot of evidence there's really virtually no evidence in terms of the effectiveness of very low dose CBD as you would find in these supplements nevertheless people are using it many people are reporting benefits again that's just based on their own experience and they're using it for pain relief they're using it for anti-anxiety use and a variety of other uses again those are really not supported clinically however we have reported on what's in these products and how they compare and I'll talk to you a little bit right now about really what to look for at least on a label and again you can look at our report to really get the details but what's interesting is that because of the legal situation with CBD a number of companies are not putting CBD on the label they're calling it a hemp extract and I'll show you some examples a popular product right now is CW and we tested both the product for people as well as for pets and what you'll see and I'll try to hold this up is that you won't even see CBD mentioned on the label for the CW products it just says hemp extract and I'm not holding this up well 28 milligrams and that's per a 1 ml serving hemp extract you know basically is kind of a code word for CBD if you just see hemp oil that may be the kind of a carrier the base that they're using but the hemp oil itself does not have sea Beadie hemp oil is made from seeds the seeds of the hemp plant have virtually no CBD in them so if you hear hemp oil and we we have tested at ConsumerLab hemp oil products as well like this one and some others don't expect CBD from a product that's just a hemp oil product that's not what they're meant for they really contain various Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids we have a whole report on hemp oil supplements as well as other seed oil supplements on ConsumerLab com such as flaxseed borage oil etc but don't expect CBD from hemp oil now some products some companies are really putting it out there that they do contain CBD an example would be + CBD oil and you can see they like they state clearly at least on this label 10 milligrams of cannabidiol per capsule and then you'll see you know other variations let's see this is Bluebird and I believe they make no claim in terms of the actual CBD in there however all these products based on our testing do contain appreciable amounts of CBD so there's a variety of products again if you really want CBD if it's product just says hemp oil don't expect CBD if it says hemp extract you can expect some if some products are actually just saying can phyto cannabinoids which is kind of a a way of I'm trying to find a product that says phyto cannabinoids here's one right here this is a nano enhanced hemp oil and it's turn talking about phyto cannabinoid dials that are in the product some of that is likely to be CBD but not all of it and then you'll see other products that claim to contain a combination of CBD and CBD a CBD a is another type of cannabinoid but again you're not going to know how much of it is CBD unless you test it as we've done it at consumer lab in terms of price we found that you could get a dose of 10 milligrams of CBD for as little as 80 cents from some of these products or as much as 3 or 4 dollars for 10 milligrams so if you're going to use CBD you may as well spend as little as you can to get to get good quality CBD again you'll find that information in our report on CBD at ConsumerLab comm if you have any questions you can post a comment or question where this video appears or you can email us at info at ConsumerLab comm so once again this is dr. Todd Cooperman of ConsumerLab comm thanks for your time


  1. Wow, what a GREAT video. I am a newbie to this CBD stuff and I am trying to learn as much as I can about it – thank you for this incredibly informative video.

  2. Hemp and Marijuana are two different species under the Cannabis umbrella – they are not the same so this is confusing. Go to the U.S. Hemp Authority to find Hemp CBD brands that are verified to be what they say they are on their labels. CBDrichLife.com

  3. Can you do a review on Stratos CBD tablets? They are the leaders in clean, safe CBD in Colorado. So many people are getting sold products that lack efficacy and/or the real deal oil. Stratos sells into the dispensaries here / online and is also founded by scientists interested in clean delivery and effective dosing.

  4. Can u use cbd whit pils for anxiety citalopram 10.mlg togheter ???

  5. Your website charges for a newsletter in order to see the reports on testing of products.

  6. I have been using 22% CBD oil for over 3 years to help combat many of my ailments and it is WORKING~To HELL with Morphine I don't need it anymore =) ( 12years) We NEED to be careful of GARBAGE products that claim they are what they say, always be careful of what goes in people~This dude is so fucking wrong it is hilarious, I will use CANADIAN products FUCK AMERICA~

  7. This site may help your research https://cinaweeds.club/

  8. Hemp CBD is legal

  9. Informative video. Thank you for the education. It would be great to hear about the different processing methods to produce the cbd and the downside of each or if one method is superior to the other.

  10. I recently bought 1 bottle 1oz CTFO 1500 10xPURE FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL DROPS with PURE CBD HEMP OIL from the CTFO Company for $160.00.. Watching this video Im more confused then I was before! I have severe health problems and I have Malsorbtion Syndrome . So being in severe constant pain everyday nothing pain wise has touched me. So several of my specialists told me to try CBD. Since I have severe lung disease I can only really do oil. I’ve tried tiny amounts twice but Im afraid to take the amount it says to take!! Is this a good one?? My best friend uses them so thats why I gave them a try, but it says CBD Hemp oil!?!? And It was very expensive!! Please help!!!

  11. Le meilleur conseil que je puisse vous donner c est de trouver des graines de cannabis bio et de fabriquer vous meme votre huile car on ne peut plus avoir confiance en personne . Si vous cultiver vous meme votre plante vous saurez que celle ci est efficace et surtout sans danger pour votre santé.

  12. you must test for glyphosate, (Round up weed killer pesticide) it is cancerous and in all GMO food!

  13. 4 dollars? on what planet is that price based. My local Sprouts sells CBD products averaging around almost a hundred dollars. The cheapest 10 mg bottle on the shelf was almost 20 dollars, that was the cheapest option. It's a real shame considering hemp is finally federally legal but the prices for some reason are simply through the roof.

  14. Sold where I work. Helps some, not all. Customers want instant results for conditions they've had for years/decades. Be PATIENT. Some people return in under 3 days. "Doesn't work". We stopped taking returns, it got out of hand.

  15. I bought turmeric plus cbd capsule Terry's naturally didn't really work so far for ulcerative colitis. I still haven't finished the bottle yet.

  23. Why treat the symptoms with CBD, when you can cure the ailment with pure THC? Don't make any sense to me, that people don't know the cure is in those trees… not just symptoms to be relieved,,, health & wellness can be achieved… It's a miracle beyond belief…Now you know just where to find relief…..avoid the grief, a lot of you know more than me……So, stand up. Your'e the key.

  24. You have to pay to see the report

  25. I am trying Cannabliss right now. On the bottle it say CBD Hemp Oil. I Bought it for arthritis pain in my back. No good results yet, but it's only been 4 days. Here's hoping. It's not cheap.

  26. Anybody else think this guy is stoned ? he kinda has the look.

  27. My oil of choice is from Superior Organic. https://www.superiororganiccbd.com
    Great tasting!!

  28. My 87 yr.old mother in law has been taking to keep her very high anxiety in check. It was so bad at times for her to the point she thought she was having a heart attck. Very scarey for her. Since last summer and we, the family notice she is much better, and not going to the hospital a lot…and she is sleeping a bit better too.

  29. no standard labeling system is a problem

  30. Why did the street nlack market oil sales increase 10 fold after people tried government oil? Why are the laws even worse on the marijuana and edibles if it is legal. It should have be decriminalize…not legalized which makes more jail laws. People are not trusting pesticides or herbacides or strength.

  31. Great video so tired of seeing places sell what they are calling CBD oil and directly below it says hemp oil but are trying to sell it as the CBD oil it's disgusting that they are trying to take advantage of the situation that the consumer will not know the difference

  32. Well I got some of that CBD oil and I can't tell if it has done anything. I'm still listening for it. Seems like it helps everyone but me. Maybe paid actors saying it's good. ,?. I haven't found the good yet. But I'm still listening.

  33. Marijuana is not Hemp or vice versa

  34. Now a year later, one and only one company is emerging as the undisputed Leader in the industry setting the bar for others to attempt to achieve! Get links to that Company by watching this short video at: https://youtu.be/2_Cxq1mO1qw and Be Well!

  35. I noticed this video was published in 2018, May and maybe that's why this guy is so careful about CBD and the results of taking CBD. He needs to update himself unless he has already got another video and watch more videos of results.

  36. yea for all the people who see a positive effect from CBD oil.  I purchased the strongest potency available , one oz. for $120.00 & took 15 to 20 drops per day. I saw absolutely ZERO effect on pain, swelling or inflammation in my hands which have arthritis.  An aspirin works wonders but CBD oil was an absolute waste of my money. I should have checked w/ a friend who had also taken it before making my purchase, since she had zero effect from cbd oil as well.. The cbd industry will make millions w/ all the hype, so be sure to look for stock options.

  37. the price was missing, it is way to expensive, many can't afford it, the government still has they're fingers in it.You have to grow your own.a 50 mil. cost between $65 to over $ 100.00There is so much coconut, or olive oil in there, that makes it very week. it took 7 weeks before it started to help with the osteo arteritis. after that you have to start taking more and find the so-called sweet spot, again and again, so it won't even last that long.

  38. Just ask for third party COA like this to find out whats in it https://secure.primemybody.com/cofa/PDF/RECEPT_19L.pdf and for more info on it see https://synergywellness.primemybody.com/

  39. Stomach acid breaks down CBD rendering it ineffective when administered orally. This is why smoking pot works much better. Also, many of the cannabinoids need heat to activate them. They are not water soluble. Last but not least, all of the 104 cannabinoids in pot work together as a team to deliver the benefits. Stand alone cannabinoids are much less effective since their team mates are not there to help out.
