The only nontoxic variety is Ceylon, which is not the most prevalent variety sold in US markets. In fact, the other two varieties which are most common in the US market contain COUMARIN, a toxic compound that damages the liver. So what variety of cinnamon do they use? It would be imperative to clarify this matter going forward especially if they are advertising their products as "Wellness" products.

You can learn something from everyone....I did not realize other things are sold as Cinnamon in the United States....I order in bulk organic from Mountain Rose, Cinnamon which says on the package Cinnamomum Verum at that is Latin for the real thing, and it says it is from Sri Lanka which I guess is Ceylon....Mountain Rose has a good reputation but one never knows for sure about foreign organic.
Cassia is sometimes sold as Cinnamon also.
Have to watch how much cinnamon one uses my Great-granny who is in her 80s lived here with us last summer and will this summer used it on everything...put in coffee even.
Was having real bad non-stop nosebleeds sometimes that were alarming to me (she says she will see a doctor when she needs a death certification) when she came as Cinnamon thins blood bad...
.I had to pump her up with vitimen K stuff ,but we had a lot in the garden...Broccoli, Kale,cabbage, edible podded peas which all have a lot of vitimen K and all cool weather crops do real good in our summers here..Corn or tomatoes on the other hand will not even ripen up here.
Asparagus is just now starting to pop up it has a lot of vit. K in it also so will put a lot up...Milk and cheese has K in it also and we have lots of goats..but got rid of some kids for Cinco-day- Mayo (5th of May) for the Mexicans 'cabrito'
Yes Cassia comes to mind...most cinnamon in the US is from Cassia, which is not real cinnamon. Only Ceylon cinnamon is safe.
Cinnabon uses neither, and has a different variety which is also high in courmarin (like Cassia).
Ceylon cinnamon is considered "true cinnamon" and has several health benefits. Most importantly, Ceylon does not have toxic levels of coumarin. However, it must be IMPORTED. Therefore, I question whether these hemp oil tinctures are as healthy as they claim. Coffee is for many people a morning start-up, but has no health benefit and is actually treated as a poison by the body. As the body copes with the poison it speeds up metabolism, leading to a number of side effects that coffee lovers enjoy. However, to compare coumarin to caffeine is naïve. Coumarin is extremely toxic to the liver. If they are not using Ceylon cinnamon in their tinctures, then they are using a coumarin-containing variety. If this is the case, I have to say their product is poorly developed and dangerous to one's health. So what variety of cinnamon are they using? We have to know!
