Did you know that 2 out of 3 Americans know what CBD is, and 1 out of 7 use it? That’s according to CNN’s Weed 5: The CBD Craze, in which Dr. Sanjay Gupta examines the issues around the burgeoning demand and market for products containing CBD. The piece does an excellent job of exploring the issues around CBD while highlighting what consumers need to know and can do to protect themselves.

From the beginning, at Cloud 10 Hair Care we have been dedicated to educating our customers not only about our CBD-Infused hair care products, but about CBD in general. We prepared The ABCs of CBD that you can view here or download as a PDF.

As stated in Weed 5: The CBD Craze, the truth is that there is currently no federal requirement for CBD to be tested for safety or accuracy by outside labs. And in an article in the medical journal JAMA examining products claiming to contain CBD that were available for purchase online, nearly 70 percent were not correctly labeled.

As of this writing, it’s up to each state to determine how, or whether, to regulate CBD, while the FDA is trying to figure out the same. Last year a bill passed in Utah requiring that CBD products be registered with the state, and that manufacturers provide certificates of analysis from outside labs to ensure that their products aren’t mislabeled or tainted.

But generally, purchasing products containing CBD these days may hold a certain amount of risk, unless the products with CBD provide the complete list of ingredients, and Certificates of Analysis from an independent lab to back them up.

And that’s exactly what we’ve done. Our products are formulated to contain 1% CBD and to be completely free of THC, and we can prove it. Certificates of Analysis are available on our website for each formula. We test three random samples from each production batch and, since results will vary slightly between each bottle, we publish those that fall in the middle.

It’s how you can be sure the Cloud 10 CBD-Infused Hair Care products you’re purchasing are exactly what we say they are.
