When it comes to having a verifiably pure product, HempWorx receives high marks. More impressive yet is the tenacity with which they attempt to educate consumers about CBDs. However, HempWorx is a multi-level marketing company that requires membership to purchase their products, and as such we recommend looking elsewhere for your personal CBD needs.
Hemplucid is a highly trustworthy CBD brand that uses innovative technology and exudes ardent transparency. In fact, we consider their transparency innovative in and of itself. Engaging in charitable endeavors like donating to nonprofits or providing veterans discounts would put them at a five-star rating. (And psst… Ditch the polysorbates!)
Koi asserts they believe in helping people. And we really believe them! We see these sorts of statements all the time in the CBD world, but Koi is doing all the right things to help people benefit from CBD oil’s amazing health advantages. First off, their sourcing and extraction methods are clean and sustainable. Second, they publish up-to-date lab tests for safety and purity. Finally, Koi gives military personnel and veterans 25% off for life. We applaud their wholehearted and successful efforts at providing “pure, powerful CBD to help you live a happy, healthy life.”
After years of battling a life-threatening autoimmune disease, founder Harry moved his family to a farm to grow his own cannabis and replace his prescriptions. Decades of research and experimentation resulted in Rosette Wellness, his vehicle to share cannabinoid therapy with the masses. For now, one must reside in California to try these Emerald Cup-winning products, including CBD tinctures with different THC ratios. But we like what we see. If Rosette publishes CoAs proving their laboratory testing, they might just find a top spot on our list.
Anyone who’s visited a medical cannabis dispensary in California has come across Kiva’s artisan cannabis-infused chocolate bars. They’ve garnered multiple awards for their attention to detail and quality control, and rightly so. This dedication at each step of the process is what differentiates a good vendor from a great one. The only nuance is the lack of published Certificates of Analysis, but these are available upon request (as they do perform extensive tests). As such, Kiva is really more of a 3.5 as opposed to a 3.
Cleanse. Nourish. Revive. These are the health-boosting aims of Holy Grail CBD, a company committed to science and sourcing that targets the energy, beauty, and wellness sectors within the industry. For the most part, they are on top of their testing and post independent results for most of their SKUs. Holy Grail CBD produces their own lines and sells other brands on their website as well. The majority of their offerings are quality, but we are a bit confused as to their methodology when it comes to selling brands that compete directly with specific products.
There is an abundant amount of anecdotal evidence that alludes to the fact that Dr. Stephen Katz of Therabis offers strong and highly effective CBD oil products for animals. With decades of experience as a veterinarian and 10 years of research and development, Dr. Katz’s credentials speak for themselves. However, they owe it to themselves to publish documentation to verify the safety and quality of their pet-formulated CBD products to really put them over the top.
Rebuild your endocannabinoid system today! CBD Infusions wants us all to benefit from the positive health effects of CBD oil. Although we certainly echo that sentiment, we need some clarification and more information to rank this company higher. We aren’t sure where exactly their hemp is sourced, and there needs to be published independent test results for each SKU. We will say that the CBD Infusions products have very clean and natural ingredients, something we don’t come by everyday in this space.
Nature’s Way Botanicals has a bone to pick — it’s with Big Pharma along with the harmful medicines that affect so many searching for answers to health and wellness issues. Their solution? The natural power of CBD oil and essential oils. They provide strikingly comprehensive and unbiased CBD information on their site, an uncommon occurrence in a space where companies hand pick information to plug their products. Their hearts are in the right place, but we need a few things cleared up.
Lidtke is a natural supplement retailer that offers its own line of CBD tinctures, including synergistic herbal blends for humans and pets. Anti-inflammatory healers like turmeric and ginger are combined with full spectrum CBD oil to produce powerful combinations for relief. Lidtke uses zero artificial ingredients, something we applaud and wish we saw more of with the onslaught of new CBD companies eager to get in on the goods. And Lidtke looks like they’re trying to be transparent by posting test results for each SKU. But we did a double-take that reveals these CoAs not to be as comprehensive as they should be.
