BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. â€” CBD oil, which typically comes from hemp, created headlines after a woman was arrested at Disney World for carrying the oil. Charges were later dropped.
â€śRight now is the “Wild, Wild West” of CBD, you can find it at the corner store and gas stations,â€ť said manager Edwin Diaz of Your CBD Store in Boynton Beach .
Diaz said when buying products the best way to know what is inside them is to ask: â€śYou want to ask or a certificate of analysis, a lab report.â€ť
Several experts, including a Consumer Report, recommend asking for a certificate of analysis, or a COA. The COA will tell you exactly what is in the CBD product you are buying.
â€śThe biggest thing, when they walk through the doors, is that it doesnâ€™t have any THC, any in it,â€ť said Diaz.
THC is illegal in Florida unless you have a medical marijuana card. The COA is voluntary and is done by a third party.
â€śI want something that will work out for me the best way possible,â€ť said customer Melissa Singer.
She said she will always ask for a COA to make sure she knows what is inside the product she buys.
