Awareness of the benefits of CBD oil products in the U.S. is growing, but there is still a lot more work to do. That’s according to data released today from our first “State of CBD” survey.

In March 2019, Joy surveyed more than 300 people across the U.S. about their knowledge and attitude toward CBD oil and CBD-related products. Some results were promising — more than 70% of people surveyed knew that CBD oil can help with pain and anxiety. But a shocking one in eight thought CBD oil either goes into cars or helps you get a better tan!

More importantly, when asked key questions regarding some of the common misconceptions about CBD oil, a surprising number of people answered that they simply didn’t know what the truth was. Here are some examples.

Can CBD oil cause a bad result in an employer drug screening?

Not even a third of respondents knew the correct answer: If it’s a high-quality test, THC-free CBD oil cannot cause a bad result in a drug screen.

Do CBD oil products make you high?

The good news here is that most people know the correct answer is that CBD oil products don’t get you high, but there was still a fairly significant number who either said you can get high from CBD oil or they weren’t sure.

Yes (9.97%)

No (63.86%)

Not sure (26.17%)

Is CBD oil addictive?

It’s clear that more education is needed here as nearly half said it was addictive or they weren’t sure.

Yes (8.72%)

No (51.71%)

Not sure (39.56%)

Do you need a prescription to buy CBD oil products?

 

Again, almost half either got the answer wrong or weren’t sure.

Is CBD from hemp legal in the U.S.?

This confusion is understandable. But while the CBD industry seems to lay in a gray area, as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC and does not claim to treat any ailments, it is legal in all 50 states.

We also asked Americans whether they had ever used CBD oil, plan to use it or would never use it. It’s promising that a full 83.8% said they either have used CBD oil or might use it in the future, while 16.2% said they would never use it.

A breakdown of the reasons given for never using CBD oil shows a lack of solid information about it.

If you don’t plan on using a CBD oil product, please explain why.

The biggest reason given for not using CBD oil products is that the respondents just didn’t feel like they knew enough information about the product and its benefits. A fairly large number, 14%, incorrectly believe that CBD products are illegal and made exclusively from marijuana. 1/4 said they just weren’t interested or didn’t feel like they needed it and 5.5% said it costs too much.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the most popular reasons given for refusing to use CBD oil.

  • I don’t have enough information on CBD oil. (36.2%)
  • I don’t need to use it/not interested. (24.4%)
  • It’s illegal/marijuana. (14.1%)
  • It’s unsafe. (8.6%)
  • It costs too much. (5.5%)

We hear these concerns often. While the compound CBD is found in marijuana, CBD oil is usually sourced from hemp, which has less than 0.3% THC and is legal to both grow and consume in the U.S. And while there may be misinformation that states otherwise, we have not heard any credible reports of serious negative side effects from CBD.

Fortunately, for those who are new to CBD or just need more information, Joy Organics has created an authoritative and comprehensive Guide to CBD Oil with information on the history, science and facts about the product and its benefits.

Percent saying “I would never use CBD oil products.”

Interestingly, the two age groups most suspicious of CBD oil were people over 60 AND people between 18-29. These two groups had the highest percentage of people who said they would never use it. The group most likely to use CBD oil products was in the 30-44 age range. Below is a listing of the percentage of people in each age group who said they would never use CBD oil products.

  • 18-29 (18.27%)
  • 30-44 (9.09%
  • 45-60 (16.07%)
  • 60+ (18.33%)

It’s impossible to know exactly why the oldest and youngest cohorts were the least likely to try CBD oil products. For the older folks, it could be lingering suspicions about the erroneous connection between CBD and marijuana. For the younger group, it’s possible that their reason for not wanting to try CBD is that they haven’t developed some of the symptoms yet that CBD may help (aches, pains, sleep problems, etc.)

Some other interesting takeaways from the survey:

Men were more likely to be suspicious of CBD oil products than women.

  • 19.5% of men said they would never use CBD oil.
  • 13.97% of women said they would never use CBD oil.

The geographic breakdown was very different, with people in the Mountain Zone and Mid-Atlantic zone being the most likely to use CBD and people in the southern U.S. the least likely to use it. Below is a breakdown of people who say they would never use CBD oil products by one of the nine geographic regions of the U.S.

  • East South Central (37.50%) AL, KY, MS, TN
  • West North Central (32.82%) IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND, SD
  • West South Central (36.67%) ARK, LA, OK, TX
  • East North Central (14.04%) IL, IN, MI, OH, WI
  • South Atlantic (13.89%) DE, FL, GA, MD, NC, SC, VA, DC, WV
  • New England (13.33%) CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT
  • Mid Atlantic (10.26%) NY, NJ, PA
  • Pacific (12%) AK, CA, HI, OR, WA
  • Mountain (5.56%) AZ, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, UT, WY

Android users are much more suspicious of CBD oil products than iOS users.

  • 22.12% of Android users say they would never use CBD oil products.
  • 10.69% of iOS users say they would never use CBD oil products.

Lastly, we asked Americans if they thought there should be more regulation of the CBD industry. While we don’t want pharmaceutical companies swooping in and knocking out the little guys through over-regulation, we do think it would be beneficial for consumers if the federal government began to institute basic regulatory measures. Making sure labels are honest would be the first step: Is the CBD content accurate? Is it truly THC free? Are there heavy metals or pesticides in these products?

Right now, most consumers simply don’t know what they’re putting in their bodies unless the company from which they purchase has opted for transparency and self-regulation. At Joy Organics, we use ISO certified third-party labs to test all of our ingredients and products. That way we know what we’re giving our customers and our customers know exactly what they’re getting. Until the government begins to regulate CBD products, we believe the only way to truly be reputable is by doing so.

Should the government regulate growing, manufacturing and ingredients found in CBD consumer products?

Yes (41.43%)

No (27.73%)

Not sure (30.84%)

As we’re making our way through this industry, it’s both helpful and fascinating to get an understanding of CBD from a different point of view. We may love CBD, but that doesn’t mean everyone knows what it is and the benefits it can bring! We’ll continue to work hard to bring first-rate CBD education to the table so that, even if it’s slowly, more people can begin to understand this cannabinoid and how it may impact their life.

  1. I've gone through 3 bottles of CBD oil and have seen no change in the inflammation issues I've been experiencing. I've noticed no change in my emotional state. The only meds I take are some Naproxin alternated with ibuprofen for arthritis and trigger finger. I have been taking one dropper of CBD oil under my tongue just prior to going to bed.

    Evidently it works miracles for some people. Not so for me. That leads me to wonder if it's a placebo reaction for many people.

    “Wonderful Group to work with. Everything from fantastic products, prices, customer support, beautiful packaging to fast, friendly service. Joy Organics is family and feels like family! And why it is included in my line of ‘Paulines Preferred’.”

    Pauline / Paulines Preferred

     

    “People on CBD related FB pages have messaged me asking what company I decided to go with. Of course I tell them Joy Organics! We all had miserable experiences that ranged from not receiving all items ordered to lackluster customer service. I couldn’t take it any longer so I did a Google search and that’s when I came across Todd’s videos on YouTube. I was totally blown away by his honesty on what to look for in a CBD supplier and the obstacles to watch out for along the way. Most importantly, how to get approved for a merchant account! Not to mention the customer is always right philosophy. Becca and Alyx are prompt to answer any emails. I couldn’t ask for a better support team and that’s why I will continue doing business with Joy Organics.”

    -Robin Hood / Lone Star Organic

  • OUR UNIQUE PROCESS

    Joy’s processes ensure that her products provide an effective solution while remaining at an affordable price point.

    Each of our hemp oil droplets is between 4 to 200 times smaller than the industry standard. This means that they’re more easily absorbed into the blood whether consumed orally or applied to the skin.

    Our solution was to create a water-soluble nanoemulsion technology. This patent-pending technology transforms active compounds into nano-sized emulsions.

    Our highly bioavailable products are not only extremely effective, they’re also extremely economical. You’ll get the same results from a much smaller amount of what we create than you would from our competitors. This is better for you and your wallet.

  • JOY’S STORY

    Joy is a wife, mom and grandmother. As a self-proclaimed “health nut”, her story begins in a place that many of us know very well – persistent pain and trouble sleeping.

    While researching natural solutions, Joy learned of the benefits of CBD and began trying the top brands.

    What she found was distressing: only one of the seven biggest CBD oil brands gave her the relief she desired.

    After more research, the answer became obvious. Today’s CBD oil industry is a mess. There is minimal government oversight. No enforcement of false label claims and a huge variety of ineffective extraction and delivery methods.

    As Joy’s frustration grew, so did her passion for creating a product people could trust. She then put together her team to create the most pure, organic, and bioavailable THC-free full spectrum hemp oil on the market.
