Think smart… Go organic. Smart Organics’ products are more than your basic CBD fare. While they do offer hemp oils, salves, and tinctures (including two CBD + terpenes oils), they also feature a curated variety of synergistic supplements and functional foods. Their holistic approach is obvious in their 100% all-natural and beneficial ingredients, and they came extremely close to earning the Safety Badge. A few tweaks is all they need.
Populum is out to destigmatize hemp. Join the club. They aim to make CBD benefits accessible and affordable for everyone, taking their name from the Latin ad populum, meaning “for the people.” Populum uses food grade ethanol extraction followed by fractionalized distillation and sources their CBD hemp from domestic Colorado farms. We love that they offer a risk-free 30-day trial geared toward CBD first-timers to try out their products and experience the positive effects for themselves. See why we consider Populum a solid brand.
Sustainability is the name of the game for this Austria-based EU-only CBD vendor, as they use every part of the hemp plant during processing. Leaves turn into teas; seeds and nuts become oils and protein; and the lower parts serve as building blocks for textiles, fertilizers, and building materials. And unlike the many CBD companies we see who market their products as 100% organic, MEDIHEMP can back up their claims with certified-organic CBD oil in both isolate and full spectrum options. We believe this to be a solid, trustworthy CBD brand that falls just short of higher marks.
Elite Botanicals is a large-scale, innovative supplier of CBD oil to reputable brands in the industry. We don’t know enough about their wholesale proprietary CBD product line due to missing ingredients lists. And even though Elite Botanicals is technically a CBD oil supplier, not a retail operation, we cannot award more than three badges based on our sound methodology.
Green Gorilla is pushing the boundaries of the CBD industry. How? They’re not just providing premium CBD products; they’re foraying into the hemp growing industry to promote sustainability and scalable, eco-friendly solutions around the world. This international outfit is a member of a tiny group of CBD companies that actually have the USDA organic seal. This means that all ingredients, all processes, are clean and sustainable. Green Gorilla is a company we trust. They fall short of a perfect score since we no longer find evidence of their charitable involvement, and they do not post comprehensive CoAs. However, this green company is making huge strides, and we are confident in their methods and products.
