Is there anyone in the market selling CBD products that aren’t marking the price up 10x? Is there anyone moving plain CBD oil and isolate on the retail side?
I recently had a sad conversation with a friend who is not financially in great shape. Her dog has terrible seizures and twitchy behavior from overbreeding, and CBD oil was the only medication that was effective and more or less stopped all symptoms. She bought a product like this. Now we all know the price of a gram of CBD is like $4-6 wholesale. This is CBD plus MCT oil. It has plainly been marked up 10 times it’s material expenditure. She was struggling to afford it.
The other products I see in stores are just as bad. A bar I went to recently had “CBD shots” you could add to a drink for $3. I did a quick calculation and guessed it had probably 10 cents of CBD in it.
Insurance doesn’t cover any of these medications. How can people who believe this is medicine justify this severe price gauging? Every time I meet someone who relies on CBD for their ailments and tell them my job, the first thing they do is ask if I can score them bulk CBD on the back end. It is a sad situation. Is there anyone fighting this?
