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!
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.
Los Angeles-based Leafy Drops started last year, after its veteran owner found their own success with CBD oil to combat depression and anxiety. Its mission, it says, is to help people, and it seems to follow through, not only offering quality—and safe—products for humans, but using other ingredients in their products that are helpful for other members of the primate family.
If we could choose one word to describe Empower BodyCare, it would be BADASS! Founder Trista Okel came up with the concept while sitting in a jail cell for protesting medical cannabis restriction. She then spent eight years developing a CBD topical oil for pain that people can’t get enough of. So much so, it’s become the best-selling cannabis topical in Oregon. See why this badass CBD vendor makes all the right moves.
Greenlife Organics is a seed-to-sale operation you might just fall in love with — they talk the talk and walk the walk when it comes to sustainability. Their CBD products are simple, organic, and dubbing them high quality is an understatement. We also really appreciate that they offer isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum options in their lovely CBD catalog with an impressive team to back it up.
GoGreen Hemp certainly covers the gamut with their product catalog — CBD tinctures, vape cartridges, CBD topicals…the gang’s all here! High points include their charitable program that goes above and beyond and their highly affordable, all-natural CBD balms. And since the GoGreen team is both innovative and meticulous about their testing, they get all five badges from us.
Denver-based Summit CBD may get its name from the towering mountains lying just West of the city. Or maybe it’s from the high-quality of cannabidiol product they hope to produce. Either way, it seems the company does a good job of living up to its lofty name, with a large variety of CBD oil items—for both people and pets—that pass our safety test and can help users with everything from revving up for a peak performance to chilling out at the end of a long day.
In a world full of pretenders looking to make a quick buck off a hot trend, Current Naturals hopes to stand out as a company deeply rooted in its morals—and its commitment to creating a safe and consistent product. And, from the breadth of information it provides on its preferred farming practices, CBD oil extraction methods, and cannabidiol safety records, it seems the company does just that, earning our Big Three badges (Mission, Safety, and Quality) and proving that there is still such a thing as an honest business in this crazy age.
Lily CBD is a rare East Coast-based entrant in the CBD oil market, but the company brings with it all the zippy follow-through the Northeast is known for. New York State farms are responsible for organically growing Lily CBD’s hemp, while the more extensive—but safer and cleaner—CO2 extraction method is employed to cultivate CBD oil. The company also has all of its products tested for heavy metals and other contaminants and works just as hard spiritually as it does physically, with a percentage of all sales donated to charity.
