In early July 2024, online users searched for LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews, complaints, ingredients and scam, including wishing to know if Clint Eastwood, Dana Perino, Tom Selleck and Dolly Parton endorsed the gummies. The users also searched Google to find out more about “where to buy” LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies “near me” – a visible search suggestion in Google. Unfortunately for those users, scams surrounded this product. The scammers’ effort was nothing more than the latest attempt to promote false promises about CBD gummies. These scammers, who try to stay in the shadows and remain unidentified, have been executing these CBD scams for many years. Victims of such scams often end up losing at least hundreds of dollars.

Readers may have seen online articles disguised as LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews. However, those “reviews” were not actually real consumer opinions but rather promoted fake endorsements famous people’s names. Some of those fake articles also featured Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies – another product absolutely surrounded by scams, as I previously reported. This strategy of featuring celebrities next to products with which they have no involvement is a common scam tactic. I found no evidence online of any famous people ever endorsing LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies or Nature’s Leaf CBD Gummies, including Eastwood, Perino, Selleck and Parton. (It’s unclear who exactly created and bottled the two products.)

In this story, I’ll break down everything about the LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews scam. I will provide details regarding why it’s so difficult to find trustworthy Google search results for the product. I will also dial through the three steps of how the scam works. Additionally, I will publish the customer service and support phone numbers for the purported company.

Note: I have researched these gummy scams for several years. Along the way, I somehow became an expert about how these specific scams work. I encourage everyone to read through each section below as I have attempted to pack this story with helpful information.

CBD Gummies Scammers Cram Google with Garbage Content to Dominate the Space

A Google search for LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews displayed results for lucannafarms.com and lucannafarmscbd.com. According to GoDaddy.com’s WHOIS domain lookup tool, an unknown person registered lucannafarms.com in March 2024. An unknown person also registered lucannafarmscbd.com on June 25, just days before I published this article.

Other Google search results displayed numerous links leading to content created by scammers. Scammers posted fake reviews and product-purchase links for LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies on multiple websites. For example, scammers often promote CBD and keto gummies in online forums having nothing to do with the products, like on message boards about tarantulas and tortoises.

Scammers also create event listings on WeddingWire.com, Chess.com and other websites, even though the product has nothing to do with weddings or chess.

Additionally, scammers apparently pay money for “sponsored” articles on news websites and community blogs. For example, scammers promoting LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies appeared to pay for a sponsored content article for the Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, a news website based in Washington state.

Scammers post content about LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies on all of these websites in an attempt to dominate Google search results. The scammers’ strategy apparently seeks to control the narrative and bury any credible reporting exposing the scams (example: the article you’re reading right now).

How the Scam Works

CBD gummies and keto gummies scams usually follow the same predictable playbook. In the case of the LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews scam, the scheme began with misleading ads. The link in the ads directed users to one of several scam articles. Links in the scam articles then took users to the final page asking them to purchase the product.

Step One: The LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies Scam Ad

Facebook and Instagram ads are the usual avenues in which users might run into the LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews scam. Meta – the parent company of Facebook and Instagram – and other online advertising companies all accept money for and approve these ads.

For example, one ad displayed to users on Facebook and Instagram in July 2024 claimed, “At 94, Clint Eastwood Drops Bombshell On Fans. Their illegitimate child turned out to be…” This ad was nothing more than misleading clickbait leading users to the scam. Again, Eastwood has no involvement with LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies or any other CBD or keto gummies.

The point of the misleading scam ad is to lure potential victims with a surprising and sometimes shocking rumor. In the past, scammers improperly used the image and likeness of Oprah Winfrey, Mayim Bialik, Keanu Reeves, Kelly Clarkson, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire and many other famous people, all to promote scams for shady CBD and keto gummies products.

Step Two: LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies Scam Article

The link in the misleading and scammy ad leads users to the second step of the scam. That second step features a fake article designed to fool users into believing they are reading from a prominent news source.

In the case of the LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies scam and its many fake reviews, the scam ads directed users to apytoidr.buzz displaying a fake Fox News article. Scammers often create fake articles posted on scam websites copying the design of prominent news publishers. Scammers execute this strategy to fool users into believing the claims have legitimacy.

The fake Fox News headline read, “Clint Eastwood’s risky business practices led to major lawsuits: His Response on Air.”

The fictional and scammy story read, in part, “After seeing a massive decline in their sales, Pfizer started calling for Clint Eastwood’s company to halt operations, saying: ‘We’re happy Clint Eastwood found something to replace opioids, pain killers and save American lives but his company is engaging in unacceptable business practices. He must cease production immediately and stop offering LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies to the public.'” In reality, Pfizer never said any of this.

The article later falsely claimed LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies had the ability to “instantly and permanently reverse dementia.” The article also falsely promised customers the product could help them experience a life “free from pain.”

Regarding the “reverse dementia” scam claim, the British Alzheimer’s Society published, “There are no research studies that prove cannabis, or products such as cannabis oil (CBD oil), can stop, slow, reverse or prevent the diseases that cause dementia.”

Some readers might notice the scam articles don’t always load. Scammers create two versions of each article page. One version of the page displays a generic online store as a way of covering up the scam. The second version of the page displays the scam article, such as the fake Fox News story about Eastwood.

Step Three: Product Purchase Pages

The website lucannafarms.com was the most official-looking page I located for the LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies reviews scam. The page falsely claimed Yahoo Finance, MarketWatch, OK Magazine and USA Today all published reporting about the product. The website loaded for me when visiting secure.lucannafarms.com. (Clicking on this link will load a safe and archived version of the page.)

CBD gummies websites often rope customers into subscription charges of hundreds of dollars per month. These websites often bury subscription information in the fine print in the terms and conditions – a document only found at the very bottom of the page.

LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies Customer Support Phone Numbers

(888) 200-3214, (844) 203-9923 and (877) 499-9056 were the three customer service and support phone number listed in the terms and conditions and contact tab for LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies. Three phone numbers are better than none. Sometimes, CBD gummies websites omit all contact information. I did not locate an email address.

If any readers believed these scammers scammed them, I recommend calling your credit card company. Inform your credit card company about the scam you encountered and let them know it’s possible you unknowingly signed up for a subscription. Also, tell your credit card company you request a refund and want to ensure no further scam charges appear in future months.

Strange Happenings

In the past, victims of CBD and keto gummies scams reported strange events to me in my comments on YouTube. For example, some people victimized by the scam told me the return addresses for the products did not exist. For example, some YouTube commenters reported P.O. Box 7000 in Smyrna, Tennessee in the 37167 zip code is not a real P.O. Box. That mailing address appeared alongside numerous gummy scams for at least several years.

Some scam victims told me they received charges for gummy products they later received at their doorstep despite never having ordered them. Other people told me they received gummy products at their home despite both never having ordered or paid for them.

A brushing scam could also be a contributing factor to this matter. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) defines a brushing scam as one where a consumer receives a package they never ordered. The scheme may involve compromised personal information and fake verified-buyer reviews.

Additional Notes

Clint Eastwood is no stranger to CBD scams. In 2021, The New York Times published an article saying the actor and the company owning rights to his likeness won a $6.1 million lawsuit filed against a Lithuanian company accused of using his image and likeness to sell CBD products. Then, in 2022, The Hollywood Reporter reported news of another lawsuit win for Eastwood, this time involving a company based in California. The new round of scams in 2024 might produce even more money for Eastwood, that is, if his attorneys locate the alleged scammers.

Additionally, CBD and keto gummies products sometimes appear for purchase on Amazon.com and Walmart.com. Websites claiming to be a place legitimately selling vitamin products and other supplements also sometimes list the gummies, too. While Amazon and Walmart are somewhat trustworthy company names, these listings for gummy products in no way legitimize the false claims made by scammers about the products. Think of it this way: Walmart will never sell gummies associated with scams in their physical stores. A third-party seller organizes the product listing on Walmart.com, with the company likely receiving a commission or fee.

For example, Amazon.com displayed several listings for a product named LuCanna Farms Hemp Gummies. The bottle design showed as the same as that of LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies. It’s unclear what relationship these products may or may not share. LuCanna Farms CBD Gummies displayed the brand and seller names Livorka, Vive MD, NutraRize, Rize Labs, and Sunrise Selections.

Generally, in some cases with CBD gummies, the gummy product itself might be an outright scam, even before considering any false claims made online about the product. At the same time, note that in rare cases scammers misuse the names of some CBD gummies products from American companies purportedly having no involvement with scams.
