I came across an ad for First Class Hemp Oil. At first glance this product sounded promising. It appears to be a Made in the U.S.A. and is a CBD oil with Hemp Oil. So far so good. But wait…. the headline says “CBD is short for CANNABIDOIL!.” Actually, CBD is short for Cannabidiol. OK, maybe spell check didn’t catch that one. I’ll over look it.
How Potent Is It Anyway?
After reviewing the label and reading the entire website, the strength of the CBD in their 1 oz bottle shows 3.33mg per serving. This sounds very low! That is less than 100mg per bottle. Even other companies offer a CBD dog treats that have 10mg per serving. Competitors have bottles of 1 oz oil for a minimum of 500mg per bottle. Yes, very low CBD in this First Class Hemp Oil.
Their ad also states: “Thats why we crteated First Class Hemp Oil. What makes our First Class Hemp Oil great? (Its in the Nutural & Pure Ingredients!)”
First of all, “crteated” is not a word nor is “Nutural”. Second, they keep talking about the benefits of CBD and keep calling it Hemp Oil and then revert back and refer to it as CBD Oil. I’m convinced they are not familiar with spell check and not sure which to market, the Hemp Oil or the CBD Oil. CBD is what offers the amazing benefits we all hear about. Hemp Oil has nutritional benefits but it is just the vehicle used to get the CBD oil into our cells.
I was reviewing the web page trying to find out the price. The website requires you to fill out an order form even before knowing the price! I went ahead and completed the form. They offer 7 bottles for $199.96 ($28.56 per bottle) and offer “Specials” for 6 bottles, 5 bottles, 4 bottles, 3 bottles, 2 bottles and 1 bottle Options. A single bottle is $24.95. So really, you can buy 7 single bottles for $174.65 and skip their 7 bottle special. Don’t forget that their bottle is for 30 servings at 3.33mg per servings. Other competitors offer same size bottle containing 50 servings with 10mg per servings for just a little more money. Sounds like you are getting much more hemp oil than CBD oil.
At First Class Hemp Oil, they advertise free cancellation and have a 24 hours a day customer service line. I was hoping customer service would be able to verify how many MGs is in this product. I called the 24-hour number in the ad above on a Sunday afternoon. After calling 844-331-7135 and choosing option #1, I received a recording saying they are only open 8 to 5 Monday thru Friday.
Strike 3… They’re OUT!!
So then I thought I would try emailing them at the address in the same ad at email@example.com. I then received this email in return:
So, no 24 hour customer service phone number as advertised, no working email, they already received 3 strikes and they are going for more! Do you really think they will stand behind their cancellation policy posted on the website? I’m not willing to find out.
All Aboard… the CBD Band Wagon!
This is my biggest fear with companies wanting in on the CBD band wagon. If this company does have a decent oil then why are they so deceitful with the contact info on their ad? And why is bulk orders $4 more per bottle? They are so desperate to make a CBD sale they are creating websites with multiple misspelled words and offering no support. I only intended to ask a simple question to verify how many MGs is in this product. It terrifies me to think of trying to reach them if there was an allergy involved or a bad side effect. We couldn’t tell the Emergency Room doctor what we consumed. This is why the US Hemp Roundtable and the US Hemp Authority are putting standards in place. Those 2 organizations feel a need to protect the consumers. Making claims of improved health and expecting a customer to trust them with a product to consume is a big deal and should not be taken lightly.
I do not recommend this product. Please read my other company reviews. I don’t know about you, but a company that offers a fraction of CBD that their competitors offer, has a website that falsely advertises 24 hours a day customer service, and an email that is non responsive, is not a company I want to give my credit card info to.
