CBD isn’t the only good thing in the hemp plant. Have you ever been curious about these terpenes we always hear about? Which ones have the natural benefits you’re looking for? Finally! You can become your own terpene scientist! PhytoDabs offers isolated hemp terpenes blended with CBD in potent concentrations, so you can figure out which ones give you the perfect entourage effect. It’s major.
CBDLife UK offers a solid, clean line of CBD products. Don’t live in the UK? The brand ships their innovative and clean CBD catalog worldwide! And interestingly, CBDLife UK was a founding member of the country’s Cannabis Trades Association, an independent body of companies that investigates claims made by cannabis vendors. The idea is to promote increased transparency and testing protocols. We dig it, but we’d like to be able to see more of CBDLife UK’s own independent lab tests online.
Terra Vida has a crazy-big line of CBD products, most of which are topicals. And like most CBD topicals in the world, most of theirs are unfortunately full of synthetics. On the flip side, Terra Vida has some bright spots in their catalog, one being their mostly-clean CBD hair conditioner. It’s currently a toss-up for this skincare-heavy vendor who needs to take a good next step by providing lab test results online.
Blue Ridge Hemp has a nice line of CBD topicals, tinctures, etc., but what really stands out are their confections. The brand makes a dark chocolate CBD coconut oil and golden spice CBD oil that are to die for! Blue Ridge Hemp is known for their great-smelling, great-tasting CBD products, but we’re a little concerned that they fail to mention their extraction method nor where their hemp is grown. And no posted test results online give us a bit of pause.
The Stanley Brothers are at it again! The pioneers behind Charlotte’s Web and the CBD industry at large are offering a separate line of irresistible whole-plant infusions. We’re talking about some of the purest, most high-quality hemp oil you can get. The brothers have put together a simple line of amazing infusions drawing from their 10+ years experience with innovation in cannabinoids. Because these infusions contain THC above the 0.3% federal requirement, you can only buy from licensed dispensaries and shops in approved states.
House of Oilworx is the quirky, small-town CBD brand out of Minnesota that does well with our methodology. They have sound sourcing, processing, and they’re known to be innovative and charitable, too. House of Oilworx sells a few of their own CBD products in their online store as well as other options from third-party vendors. The brand was born out of hardship, and we find their backstory genuine and inspirational. We think House of Oilworx will resonate with a lot of people.
Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics certainly has the high-end appeal nailed. With nods in Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Goop, the CBD topical brand is a favorite among jetsetters and wellness junkies willing to pay a premium for the best CBD products they can find. Dr. Kerklaan misses the mark with our Safety and Charity Badges, but they are undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the upscale CBD topical space.
Look out world! The CBD jelly bean is here! And it’s made by the master himself. David Klein, inventor of the original Jelly Belly® jelly beans, has applied his passion for delicious candy to the CBD space with delightful and original flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Spectrum Confections admittedly doesn’t pan out well with our methodology, but we’re still stoked on these hot, new CBD treats.
L.A.-based Specktra is new on the scene with four formulas that combine organic essential oils with CBD for targeted relief. Usually, we find CBD brands creating these formulas with different terpene blends, but Specktra’s trained aromatherapists have chosen instead to use the finest quality essential oils to enhance cannabidiol’s natural benefits. Specktra is off to a great start, but they need to post contaminants tests online to ease our minds.
TrustBo has one prerogative — to get you to trust them. The good news? We totally do! We’re happy to see a CBD brand really bring it big time when it comes to transparency. Full-panel testing by independent labs? Check! TrustBo even performs allergen testing on every single one of their CBD products. If you have an allergy or simply want a no-nonsense, pure, and highly bioavailable CBD supplement, look no further.
