So, you’re at the store and are looking for a product to buy. You see a few things that look suspiciously like hemp capsules. You make a mental note to look deeper to see if they really are hemp capsules or not. If you do not know where to find hemp capsules, you can try looking at the ingredients label on your regular products. But, if the product is in the same category as the “fake” hemp capsules, then you have officially been duped! This is because some sellers are trying to sell their products under the title of being sold as hemp capsules, even though it contains only trace amounts of hemp extract.
So, how should one deal with this situation? Should you go right over to the counter and buy some products with the label that says it is made from hemp? Well, not really. Why? Well, here are 4 reasons why it is NOT the right thing to do when you are shopping for an organic or sustainable product:
It is no secret that hemp cannot be patented. This means that the company selling the product cannot label their product as being made from hemp, even if it contains traces of hemp. As a result, people who buy these products are getting something that is artificial and not organic.
Another reason this is not the best way to go is because it doesn’t guarantee that the product is truly organic. In other words, it is not guaranteed to be free of contaminants even after it has been opened and stored for a couple of years in a warehouse. What happens is that some of the chemicals that are contained in packaging materials, such as paper and cardboard, Leach into the product and are absorbed into the body. Hemp is not even resistant to these types of chemicals, making it even more of a danger to the user.
Finally, you must realize that even if a company is claiming their product is 100% organic, that does not mean it is in fact. Packaging is not regulated the same way that food is regulated, meaning that even though a company says that a product is certified organic, it may not actually be. Also, manufacturers can use fillers, dyes, binders, and many other harmful additives to their products.
These additives will not go through any type of inspection before being used on the ground, so they are not regulated in the same way. As a result, you can be buying food or goods that have been subject to lead, pesticides, and other dangerous chemicals. Not only does this not guarantee you that the hemp product is safe, but it is also illegal.
