CBD products getting easier to buy in Ks.

Difficult to know what’s in it or what it’s good for

LAWRENCE - Before starting his CBD company, Chris Brunin researched the competition, the labs they used, the products they sold.

He checked out ingredient suppliers and organic hemp farmers. He took everyone’s pitches with a heapful of salt.

“The hemp industry is like the Wild West and Wall Street had a baby,” said Brunin. “You have to vet everything and everybody . . . to make sure you’re not getting messed with or lied to.”

Brunin advises consumers to do the same. Ask to see lab results. Ask how much actual CBD - not just, say, hemp seed oil - is in a bottle. Comparison shop. Is it overpriced? Often, he says, it is.

Kansas legalized CBD, the cannabis extract cannabidiol, last summer. Since then, the state that came late to this multibillion dollar industry has seen the number of CBD vendors skyrocket.
