Naternal gives us the warm and fuzzies — not because they have a super-touching backstory or cute photos of puppies on their CBD pets page. Rather, the solid scientific and rigorous testing processes that back their cannabidiol catalog give us peace of mind. Naternal isn’t a CBD giant or an influential social media presence, but they do have a clean and charitable seed-to-sale operation. We are totally down with all their CBD products and everything they do!
Unique products are hard to come by in the burgeoning CBD oil space, but Nano 101 appears to have one of them. The Irvine, CA-based company offers one of the market’s only—and what it says is its strongest—CBD oil skin patch. Proprietary extraction methods allow Nano 101 to infuse its hypoallergenic patches with full-potency CBD, and although we understand keeping some of that process under wraps for business purposes, we’d like to see just a bit more information on the company’s specific CBD extraction method—or any evidence of the third-party testing of its cannabidiol.
Those interested in CBD-only products should note that all of Dosist’s current formulas include THC, as well as CBD. However, those who live in states where THC consumption is legal—and don’t mind the substance—should also note that Dosist offers an exceptionally innovative delivery system for those cannabinoids, ensuring that customers receive a “perfect dose” every time to keep the focus on wellness—and getting the results one is looking for.
Root Bioscience leads with what almost sounds like fighting words when they say, “We’re a science company. Not a cannabis company trying to learn science.” And well, we love it! Meet the real deal when it comes to CBD science. This team of technicians, researchers, and farmers produces high-grade CBD raw materials and offers white-label services for various products. Their consumer brand Naternal showcases Root Bioscience’s obvious obsession with quality, nature, and science.
Omax Health wants you to live life to the max! We do too, and that’s why we tirelessly vet every new CBD vendor on the scene with our solid methodology. In this case, Omax Health fares well, getting three of our five badges. They have an impressive scientific team and a pretty unique CBD product that targets, of all things, the female orgasm. But we still know very little about the cannabidiol they use in their supplements.
Barlean’s started out as an omega-3 supplement company and now, nearly three decades later, offers awesomely clean nutritional goodies from flaxseed oil to CBD oil. Their backstory couldn’t be more authentic, and it’s clear this Pacific Northwest brand is deeply invested in quality supplements and giving back to the global community. Transparent and ethical, they’re an easy CBD brand to get behind.
Disclaimer — don’t let the low rating fool you! According to our methodology, yes, technically Potli only gets two badges. But don’t let that deter you from scoring one of their amazing CBD-infused culinary items for sale in California and Las Vegas. Potli’s ingredients are the cream of the crop, and it truly doesn’t get much more sustainable or mindful than these two ladies who know what they’re doing in the kitchen (and with their cannabis, too!).
Vitagenne wants everyone to feel great, sleep better, and recover faster. And they’re making it happen with a premium line of CBD products that are meticulously tested and packed with all-natural ingredients. Everything about the brand oozes quality and authenticity — they speak a lot about empathy in a way that does not sound forced. Their CBD catalog is simple but totally top notch. We’re on board.
Anything else… is just less. That’s the Prana Principle. But when it comes to this CBD vendor, the keyword should actually be “more”. By that, we mean we need to see a lot more from them. They’ve got the apothecary-style, sophisticated branding down, but a total lack of visible test results for their CBD products is a bit concerning.
CBD Drip claims to have “The Brand That Works.” Another claim made is that they perform all extractions on Clean Green Certified European hemp crops; to our dismay, however, no certification or CGC seal is presented on the site. To top it off there are no CoAs available on the site for viewing by the public, and this one-two punch is more than enough to warrant skepticism from the concerned CBD consumer.
