How to Recognize Counterfeit CBD Oil

This article explains how to compare counterfeit products to our old packaging, circa 2018. We have published a new blog post explaining how it compares to our most current packaging. You can read that post here.

It has recently come to our attention that, due to the rapidly growing popularity of our products, counterfeits are entering the market. This trend began at certain smoke shops in Memphis, Tennessee.

While we believe that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, there have been reports of people who ingested these counterfeit products becoming ill, and we are concerned with the safety and well-being of our customers. If you purchased one of these counterfeit products unknowingly, please reach out to us with any information you can share.

You can recognize these counterfeit products by comparing four different traits. In the side-by-side image, genuine Beyond Botanicals product is on the left, and the counterfeit product is on the right.

  • The Dropper: Beyond Botanicals products always have black droppers. Notice the white and gold dropper on the counterfeit product.
  • The Safety Seal: Beyond Botanicals products each come individually sealed. Notice the lack of a safety seal on the imitation.
  • The Bottle: Our oil tinctures come in brown bottles. Notice that the counterfeit product comes in a green bottle.
  • The Label: Beyond Botanicals labels are glossy, with metallic highlights for the colored areas. These are high-quality labels, printed to the size of the bottle, where the color extends to the edge of the label. On the counterfeit product, the color does not extend all the way to the edge, and this label was obviously made on standard printer paper, not true label stock.

Beyond Botanicals is committed to high-quality hemp extract products. We grow organic American hemp, and supply third party laboratory testing for each batch. This testing is what sets us apart from less sincere sellers on the market. Each report shows the exact content of our product, confirming that it is both safe and effective.
