Irwin Naturals CBD
Too Many Added Ingredients Including Flaxseed In Every CBD Product
For consumers looking for a truly pure CBD product without additional ingredients, Irwin Naturals does NOT provide such a product. The addition of these added ingredients increases the risk of an allergic reaction in some people or the possibility of other issues. The Irwin Naturals CBD products have a number of added ingredients, the most prominent being flaxseed oil. In fact, flaxseed oil is in every one of the company’s CBD products. See more on the potential problem with flaxseed below.

More Serious Risks From Flaxseed*
Some folks think flaxseed is a healthy superfood but others have reservations. In fact, some experts recommend that some people, such as women who have had certain cancers or who are at higher risk for certain hormone related cancers should avoid flaxseed. The reason is because flaxseeds contain phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens, or dietary estrogens, are naturally occurring in certain plants. Although the evidence is not conclusive, some experts hypothesize that phytoestrogens could present an increased risk of certain cancers. Phytoestrogens could mimic estrogen in the body. The bottom line is there is a potential risk for certain people consuming flaxseed.

Too Many Unknowns About This Product
While the actual CBD included in these products may be of a good quality there is too much information that is not disclosed (see above) to make that determination. Neither the company website (or product labels) indicate whether or not the CBD used in their products have been tested by an independent lab for authenticity and purity. Further, neither the company website (or product labels) indicate what type of extraction method was used to produce their CBD. Was it a clean CO2 extraction method or a comparably clean method, or was the CBD extracted using potentially toxic chemicals. The company does not disclose this information, so we don’t know. All of the major CBD brands disclose this type of information but not Irwin Naturals. Further, the company website (or product label) does not indicate if the CBD which country their CBD comes from
So, for all of these reasons, the Irwin Naturals CBD brand is NOT recommended.

There are too many unnecessary ingredients in this product including flaxseed in every Irwin Naturals CBD product. The addition of these ingredients increases the risk of an allergic reaction in some people or the possibility of other issues as discussed above. Also, the failure to disclose the source of their CBD, the extraction method used in addition to the failure to disclose whether their product ingredients were tested for purity and authenticity make it impossible to consider this brand.
