CBD SCAMS & CBD MLM/PYRAMID SCAM BRANDS TO STAY AWAY FROM
**CBD Oil SCAMS**
Avoid any offer of a "free trial bottle of CBD oil" for a small shipping fee.
Pure CBD, True CBD, Miracle CBD, Sky CBD, Assure CBD, Divine CBD, Pure Med CBD, Organix CBD, Isolate Direct CBD, CBD XRP, Optimal Choice CBD, Zen Labs CBD, Star CBD, Serene CBD and Serenity CBD are just a few of the brands used for this scam. Often using variations of all these brand names.
They will start charging your credit card for as much as $90 per month for low quality products. Any offer of a 'free trial bottle of CBD" where you just pay a small shipping fee is a scam as detailed here: cbdoilusers.com/cbd-oil-free-trial/
OTHER BRANDS TO AVOID: Diamond CBD, Stash CBD and Meta-Gen CBD based on reports from users of dangerous side effects from synthetic ingredients.

** CBD OIL MLM BRANDS YOU MAY WANT TO AVOID **
If someone on social media private messages you or request you PM or DM for information to help, they're trying to sell you a CBD product, it's likely that they're a "brand ambassador" for one of the multi-level marketing (MLM) companies listed below.
While these companies aren't likely to scam you, there are many bad actors using fake profiles that will come across legitimate, try to gain trust & either sell you a fake product, or, take your money and not actually send you anything. These types of scammers are often sofisticated, using cloned websites & very hard to detect by most people. As such, it's best to completely avoid buying via people messaging you to sell their wares.
Brand ambassadors for these MLM companies are paid to sell the product and get more people under them to sell the product. The use jargon terms, false science, fake Drs with 0 credibility or citations, they promise you dreams and financial reward for healing yourself and prey on miss information to pass sales up the chain.
While some of the products being sold are "generally" safe, their potency reports don't match what they advertise, inflated testimonials and misleading information along with the predatory nature from those selling these products it's simply cheaper and more ethical to avoid. Most of these companies "reps/educators/health advisers" (Truth is they're un educated and just trying to build a down line for profit) prey on healing groups claiming cures of cancer to desperately ill people. The prices of these products are higher than other reputable CBD oil brands due to the MLM business model.
For the above reasons, we recommend avoiding these brands because there are just better or similar quality alternatives at considerably lower prices available for educated consumers without signing your life away and getting stuck in a predatory business model.

Be Wary of terms like. Highest availability ever, Purest cbd, Best Oil in the World, 100% absorption rate, #1 oil, Special extraction process and so on. UNLESS they can provide unequivocal evidence based on science from reputable sources.. It's just marketing GUFF!
ALWAYS ask for lab reports from all companies, without lab reports not only you, but they have 0 idea whats in the product. It could be an outright hempseed oil scam or full of chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, solvents or mold!
