Try the CBD dazzles us with their integrity and thorough attention to some crucial details. First by sourcing organic hemp from Colorado, then by implementing advanced CO2 extraction techniques, thirdly by offering a broad (but not overwhelming) array of CBD formulations, and finally by publishing up-to-date Certificates of Analysis on each new batch of material. The discount program offered to students, veterans, the disabled, and those with low-incomes/Social Security is the cherry on top of the CBD cake. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend any and all in need of cannabinoids to Try the CBD.
Canna Companion talks the talk and walk the walk. Formulated by licensed veterinarians – and subject to the scrutiny of their veterinary advisory board – Canna Companion’s full-spectrum comprehensive cannabinoid capsules were formulated as a complement to pet health and wellness regimens, and contain no soy, wheat, corn, sugar, or GMOs. Were there similar assurances that their products were also free of common hemp contaminants, we would feel much more confident recommending them.
Julian Marley carries on his father’s legacy with his cannabis company, JuJu Royal. Although the primary focus is on promoting THC-rich marijuana strains, they do offer hemp CBD products that appear aimed at recreational users. Although there’s not necessarily anything wrong with JuJu Royal (other than the lack of testing data), there is also nothing that stands out and inspires us beyond the family name, which is likely to be more than enough for many.
Although Green Gorilla claims to use organic, non-GMO hemp in their products, they are not pulling the wool over our eyes. The front page reeks of obsession with money, and even includes a completely unrelated ‘Forbes’ graphic (just in case it is unclear to the reader what their motives are). Failing to discuss anything about the safety of their products, they instead fall back on hyped-up talk of their ‘high polyphenol olive oil’ and why that sets them apart. Let us be frank – we do not recommend wasting any hard earned cash with this profit-centered business.
Treatibles has a big leg up (pun intended) on the competition among CBD pet products. Not only do they perform contaminant testing on both source material and finished product, they claim to also perform screening at the end of the manufacturing process to ensure optimal levels of CBD. While their glowing testimonials further instill consumer confidence, it’s already clear that Treatibles makes the health and well-being of animals a top priority.
Isodiol is close to as good as it gets in the CBD world. They distinguish themselves every step of the way by implementing full transparency, environmentally-friendly extraction techniques, and both in-house and third- party verified testing and full CoAs upon request. Although the flagship product (99% pure crystalline CBD) is impressive, there is nobody who will have an issue finding a product they love from Isodiol. We give them two thumbs up!
Irie CBD blows away the competition by offering CBD products sourced exclusively from organically grown, non-GMO, sustainable hemp, using supercritical CO2 extraction to produce a terpene and phytonutrient- rich hemp oil, and making it clear that they have warm and charitable hearts. Were Irie CBD to add heavy metals/residual solvents/microbials/etc. testing to all of its currently published CoAs, they would be near the top of our list for most highly recommended CBD vendors.
We are taking Pure Spectrum’s word for good when they not only claim organic from ‘seed to sale,’ but also tout laboratory testing for over 200 contaminants — as proof of neither is available online. Though Pure Spectrum appears to have very good intentions (especially considering they donate 1% of sales to the Industrial Hemp Research Foundation), there are some potential improvements they could make to their site that certainly wouldn’t hurt — and would only boost consumer confidence in their products.
AON Mother Nature, the self-proclaimed “Nature Superfood Store,” is a slightly more viable option than many of its competitors. A broad range of products finds their home at AON, including transdermal patches, vaping starter kits, and perhaps most notably various terpene juices. Despite these facts, AON’s failure to present pertinent information about not only the source but also the safety of their merchandise leaves us with questions.
While claiming to use some impressive high-tech equipment to produce the finest CBD products currently available, American Shaman falls just short of the glory by failing to publicly present pertinent data on either their techniques or their test results. Still, we encourage those with chronic illness or disability to give American Shaman a look and check out their Compassionate Care program.
