The people behind Hemp Fusion seem driven by a desire to bring health, wellness, and natural medicine to all those in need. Their products boast many innovative features that we rarely see in the CBD industry, such as effective herbal formulas or the inclusion of black pepper oil for increased bioavailability. However, a lack of relevant laboratory testing data has forced us to remain skeptical about Hemp Fusion’s level of integrity.
Colorado-based Pure Spectrum is elevating industry standards for truly organic ‘seed to sale’ CBD hemp products. Their commitment to the ideals of “self-healing, happiness, and longevity” are reflected in both their products and in their multiple charitable endeavors. While the company posts meticulously up-to-date cannabinoid profiling (purity/potency) results for their CBD oil, we do not see evidence of contaminants testing that would give the green light for safety according to our standards. Pure Spectrum comes across as an honest, genuine CBD company, and we think they are. They just need a nudge in the right direction.
Curavape is first in line to receive the worst-of-the-worst award (unfortunately there is no such trophy) when it comes to doing business in the hemp CBD industry. There is a complete lack of discussion on source material, no published data on laboratory testing, no mission statement, and nothing that makes progress in the industry. Our two cents? Avoid Curavape as if it was the Bubonic Plague.
Authentic. Organic. Natural. AON Mother Nature draws its name from these three adjectives. They use organically grown hemp in their CBD oil but do not exclusively use organic ingredients as the name implies. Still, their CBD product line of tinctures, edibles, gummies, and more is a solid offering of quality full spectrum and isolate options. Co-founder Matt was quoted saying, “Health is one of your most important assets.” And we couldn’t agree more. AON Mother Nature is off to a great start.
With over 20 years of experience working in the health and wellness industries, Sophia and K. of Amma Life certainly have the credentials needed to bring plant-based CBD solutions to the public. Using only organic and non-GMO hemp, they craft some novel full spectrum products — including a potent paste that is excessively rich in mouth-watering terpenes. Like many others before them, Amma Life fails to publish comprehensive CoAs that include test results for safety that would quell a conscious customer’s worried mind.
Founded by a family seeking alternative therapies for epilepsy, Alaska Cannabis Exchange makes some great-sounding claims about their products. If they truly do use a special strain of cannabis bred for its superior CBD genetics, that would be quite impressive. While ACE is ahead of much of the competition by posting even a single CoA, most products do not have any testing done for contaminants, and as such we encourage caution when considering said products.
While a trip through SOS Pain’s website gives the reader a few blips of hopefulness, overall the outlook is grim. While the claimed intention of helping those with pharmaceutical drug dependency is noble, there’s no avoiding the fact that all the talk of laboratory testing and source material is just that — talk. If consumers don’t know where products are from, and also don’t have a clue what is in them, there is little reason to purchase them — and a lot of risks.
Meet a team of ‘passionate growers’ dedicated to top-of-the-line hemp genetics. As the name implies, 4 Corners Cannabis consistently emphasizes that they do not cut any corners, controlling 100% of their in-house production process. They have a straightforward and focused CBD product line that is not only all-natural, but strikingly potent. We checked, and their cannabinoid profile tests show a high percentage of CBD per volume. Kudos on that front. However, the overall safety test results are lacking according to our methodology, so we’d like 4 Corners CBD to cover all bases to rank them higher in the future.
