CBD Hacker’s mission is to introduce transparency into an unregulated and confusing industry. We aim to be the most comprehensive source for product reviews and other information about CBD.
With cannabidiol’s growing popularity, the CBD industry is experiencing rapid growth. While there are a lot of companies that are working to bring great products to people who need them, there are also a lot of unscrupulous folks out there. Some products that claim to include CBD don’t contain any at all, while others may include harmful or poor-quality ingredients.
Because there is so much misinformation about CBD and CBD products, we work to present consumers with information that is:
- Easy to understand
How does CBD Hacker do all of that?
We read the latest scientific research closely, and use it to inform our recommendations.
We send product samples to third-party labs, and incorporate blind testing methodologies in our reviews.
We pay attention to legal changes and other developments that affect consumers, as well as the industry as a whole.
What don’t we do?
We do our best to understand latest CBD research and to communicate it clearly. But keep in mind: we aren’t medical professionals, and we can’t give you medical advice.
Always talk to your doctor before using CBD (or any other supplement) to treat a medical condition.
