The best place to buy (Cannabidiol) CBD products in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles is quite limited. This is partially due to the lack of CBD stores in Los Angeles since the industry is still in its early stages. But this is also due to a lack of quality brands and products. There are CBD brands at every corner, but most of them do not follow standard health guidelines. We've seen it personally, and all over the news.
There are a few CBD store locations in the San Fernando Valley in LA. Such as “Your CBD Store” and “Pure CBD”. To the standard consumer, both of these stores seem like a very trustworthy place to buy CBD from. However, this could not be further from the truth. There are many issues with CBD retail locations in San Fernando Valley that people do not know about. On top of this, buying CBD online also has its issues. All of these will be addressed in this article.
With where to buy CBD in the San Fernando Valley Los Angeles, first things first. The current market of in-store CBD retail locations right here in Los Angeles, CBD products are finding themselves into large chains and stores as they become more mainstream.
This is great and all, except that most of these chain locations do not know anything about their CBD products, the correct extraction methods of hemp and their quality control. Or even how CBD works! Surprisingly, they likely do not even read the lab results, or do not know how to read the lab tests. In contrast, Binoid CBD has all of this information on our website, and all product lab potency results and information on each product page.

On our website, each lab result is updated often with the most correct information and quality control. The problem is stores do not keep track of expiration dates of products, and often hold onto old products for a long time until they sell them. This is not a problem only in the San Fernando Valley, but also all cities in LA including Glendale, Pasadena, Calabasas, and even Beverly Hills. Despite the city, the best place to buy CBD in LA and the SFV is online. However, the problem is not only CBD retail locations. Here are a few problems that we have found in CBD retail stores in Los Angeles.
What Are The Problems Of Physical CBD Stores?
Owning a physical CBD store is pricey. There are a lot of costs associated with keeping the doors open and running. There is electricity, employment, product inventory, utilities as well as security. Because of these costs, many stores increase their prices by at least 30% on the MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Prices) to make up for their losses.
On the other hand, most online stores price at the real and legitimate retail price, or even price CBD oil products below retail price! For example, Binoid has exclusive partnerships with different brands, which means we can price below all other stores. Online or retail. We have the best prices with our brands and therefore can give our customers the lowest prices available online.
Owners or managers do not know much about their products:
One of the major downfalls of physical CBD stores is that there are a lot of different types of CBD products, and a lot of brands to stock on the shelves. This will inevitably leave owners and employees with an overload of information about their products and knowledge about CBD.
Because of this, customers should be sure to ask a lot of questions about each product, their manufacturing and extraction process, and well as the company themselves. Most stores care about getting products cheap versus actually carrying quality CBD products.
No Certifications of Analysis:
This point is less substantial, but is still something to address. Lab results are a large part of any CBD product buying decision. Or at least they should be. Most in-person stores do not carry lab results on hand, and also do not suggest the use of them.
Lab results are important because they tell you the exact potency of the product you are getting. As in, if your 1000mg CBD oil tincture actually has 1000mg of CBD in it. This is why we put lab results on every CBD product page on our store, including tests for heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides!
Stores do not know specifics about the products that can be very important to a sale:
Knowledge about the side effects and benefits of different cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, and CBN improves everyday. This means that companies need to stay on top of all the information to give their customers the best products for them.
It is difficult for physical stores to be up to date with information. For example, CBN has been found in research to help sleep insomnia and anxiety. It gives a “calming” feeling to users. Therefore, someone looking for CBD for sleep is a perfect match for a CBN Oil.
Because of this, brands and stores alike need to be updated on new information that becomes release. To no fault to the CBD stores themselves, but just because of the nature of their business, it is hard to implement new information and changes to customer inquiries and questions.
Another important example of this includes the recent identification and discovery that CBD should not be taken if you have liver problems, liver function issues or take medications for your liver. This, as well as CBD should not be taken with any medication that should not be taken with Grapefruit. This is because CBD works similarly to Grapefruit as an inhibitor of these medications and pharmaceutical items.
Stores do not show or give Certification of Analysis (COA) or lab tests of products:
In an industry that can be so shady at times, a COA or lab test is the only way to prove a quality of product. One problem with retail CBD stores is that they do not keep COA’s on file per batch to view. For some this provides a loophole to fake products.
CBD stores do not carry good brands or products:
This one speaks for itself. Many times stores just carry any brand that walks through their doors that gives them a good price. Meaning that they do not check products for potency, lab results (as stated), as well as an overall proven brand history and consumer evidence of results. Such as tons of online reviews stating their product effectiveness.
This means that the brand could be making their CBD out of their background, almost literally, can be put on the shelves of your nearest CBD store or outlet. This is a major issue, that is due to the lack of brand awareness in the industry as well as the rise and fall of many different brands. Most of the brands in physical stores are not very popular, well-known or proved anecdotally.
In contract, we vet each brand before working with them (that is why we only work with a few) and therefore we can see and control the quality of our products. If a product is not up to bar, we have and often dropped brands. Binoid CBD only carries the best CBD brands in Los Angeles, and the United States in total. Binoid CBD is an online store located in Northridge in the San Fernando Valley.
CBD stores are located in unsafe areas in Los Angeles:
Similar to dispensary locations in Los Angeles, CBD shops can be located in very run-down or not highly open places. Which can be a deterrent for many. They are not commonly placed at every street corner, yet. And are still making their rounds through the outskirts of Los Angeles until they eventually reach the center. Near Vitamin Shops and Nutrishops. However for now, CBD shops are in not-so-great areas, and people should keep that in mind when looking for one in Los Angeles.

You can visit our location at 9153 Reseda Blvd, Northridge CA 91324 and get wholesale pricing of CBD products! Just call our number at 323-776-9417 and let us know you’re coming!

Online CBD stores are no better though:
“Ok well if CBD stores are not good, then I must be able to buy quality CBD online right?” Yes and no. Yes you can buy high quality and trustworthy CBD online, but you have to navigate through a lot of fake products, wrong claims, or overall lack of knowledge by many companies.
There is a lot to know about CBD, and everyday it seems like more information becomes available. For instance, it took until the recent FDA Hearing regarding CBD in June of 2019 for the acknowledgement of real CBD side effects. This includes CBD not being healthy for those with liver function issues, or medication meant for liver aid.
Absurd shipping and extra costs:
Many online stores charge extra shipping costs or “handling” costs so they can squeeze an extra dollar out of you. Binoid CBD offers free shipping on all order sizes!
Customer service and help is non-existent: Our customer service is open to help at all times during the day. All you have to do is press on the blue chat button on our website and we will be glad to help you out.
Lack of transparency:
Some companies will not show lab results because they did not come out right, or did not invest the money into them to begin with. A full lab test is expensive, and many people will buy the product anyways. So why even bother. That is, until at some point someone finds out your product has less than half of what you advertise it has, or even has no CBD in it at all. This happens with more brands then you think.
Especially if you are not a manufacturer yourself, it is imperative that the products get tested in order to know what customers are getting. However, most companies will not do this, or even show their lab tests. Therefore we strongly urge you to check for lab results before buying any CBD product.
We put all the lab tests and Certifications of Analysis right on the product page for our customers to review for their piece of mind and legitimacy of products. All of the brands we work with lab test all of their CBD products. And usually even contain more CBD in them than advertised.
