Milagro CBD hails from Ireland and has developed an impressive European presence. They use minimal ingredients in addition to their full spectrum extract, something we highly appreciate. Too often, purveyors in the hemp space add a traffic jam of additional ingredients that are not only superfluous considering CBD’s natural benefits, but many times counteractive to these benefits (think natural and artificial flavors, preservatives, etc.). Instead, Milagro CBD is committed to purity and potency. We simply need to see more effort in certain fields to award the brand more badges.
CBD Global blew our hair back with the ferocity of their efforts in the cannabinoid industry. Pioneering with various items such as Cannabis Transparency Standards (CTS) and their Official Transparency Report (OTR), quality and safety are always a guarantee with this vendor. Although not geared towards the average consumer, if you are a retailer/wholesaler, we highly recommend you give this phenomenal, integrals, and dedicated CBD company your hard-earned dollars.
Shanti, the Sanskrit word for peace and tranquility, is the guiding inspiration behind Shanti Wellness, a chic blender of broad spectrum CBD with some of nature’s most famous adaptogens. Shanti looks the part with beautiful branding and a positive message; they definitely talk the talk. And we’ve watched this brand blossom by walking the walk with quality ingredients and potency test results for each SKU. Adding just a few more contaminants tests to their protocols will make them a five-badge vendor.
Kure CBD was founded by a vape industry veteran whose personal experience with the healing effects of CBD prompted a segway into the hemp business. Kure CBD promises “world class products created by top notch scientists”. But we have to ask, who are these scientists? Kure CBD lacks an appropriate level of transparency by not posting laboratory results online and failing to disclose basic elements of their process. The discovery of undesirable, even toxic, ingredients in their product line makes us reticent to give them the go-ahead.
Nutrition is the answer, that’s the motto enthusiastically proclaimed by Fab CBD. Fab CBD got their start searching for natural solutions that could mitigate reliance on over-the-counter medications for pain and inflammation. Their products are nutrition and performance driven, meant to bring out the best in a healthy lifestyle. We’re impressed by their full spectrum oils, high in quality and rich in terpenes, but we’re not psyched about the topical salve due to a nasty ingredient unfortunately, we’ve been seeing a lot of these days.
