FTC identifies CBD retailers warned about wellness claims



A federal customer protection agency has identified 4 CBD makers it flagged for unfair and deceptive marketing.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced warning letters were sent final month to 4 organizations promoting hemp-derived CBD items.

At the time, the agency did not name the organizations. A public records request posted this week produced these warnings public.

The organizations have been:

  • 4Bush Holdings, owner of magicgreenoildrops.com and firstclassherbalistcbd.com
  • NuLife CBD Oils
  • Ocanna
  • Relievus

The organizations have been warned to eliminate wellness claims from their internet sites and advertising and marketing components, like client testimonials. The companies’ responses have been not produced public.

Like the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration (FDA), the FTC can fine organizations that make unproven healthcare claims, even though enforcement actions beyond warning letters are uncommon.

Integrated in the newly released CBD warnings was a notice that a CBD manufacturer that contains a nutrition truth panel on a tincture “suggests that it is a food” and not a dietary supplement, violating an FDA rule that “prohibits the introduction into interstate commerce of any meals to which CBD has been added.”
