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.
Green Roads has a lot going for them, including a claimed 1,000,000+ end users of their products, which could speak for itself. They’ve got an incredible selection, and a solid philosophy that “there is always a natural alternative.” The laboratory testing that they perform is ridiculously comprehensive, but unfortunately, as of this writing, all CoAs are expired, and therefore irrelevant. We urge Green Roads to stay up to date with pertinent information on safety and their source material, so as to give the consumer a sense of confidence in their purchase.
While Diamond CBD certainly talks the talk, it remains to be seen if they will put their money where their mouth is. We love hearing about organically grown hemp from Scandinavia, HPLC testing, supercritical CO2 extraction, GMP certification, and centuries of experience cultivating the finest hemp — but remain steadfast in our wariness. We challenge Diamond CBD to step up to the plate and provide documentation to support the wild claims made on their site.
Nano Craft CBD hits many targets, including the discussion of the source material, a demonstration of positive intent, innovative products and procedures, and safety verification by a third-party, independent laboratory to boot. Whether it’s for athlete’s recovery or convenient CBD dosing on the go, Nano Craft is sure to warm the hearts of many with their original product lineup.
While we respect Cloud 9 Hemp’s mission to bring cannabis-based medicinal products to people in all 50 states, we wish that they could do so while providing current CoAs to help verify the safety of their offerings. Being fairly average in most regards, Cloud 9 Hemp does little that is new; however, the abundance of customer reviews on many products is sure to be a game-changer for many skeptical customers.
Folium Biosciences makes a great name for themselves by taking all the steps necessary to demonstrate integrity, authenticity, and safety. CoAs are available on request, and distributors are encouraged to visit the organic farms where their hemp grows. Although not a site for retail shoppers, those looking for a source of high-quality phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) hemp oil for product creation need look no further than Folium Biosciences.
CBD for Life prides itself on being a company owned by women — a vibe that translates well into their product offerings. Sporting one of the best lineups of cannabinoid-infused body care products that we’ve seen, CBD for Life may tickle many a fancy. While the claimed absence of phthalates, parabens, GMOS, formaldehyde, and artificial colors is reassuring, we need to see published laboratory testing results to be truly at ease about using these products.
The people behind Hemp Fusion seem driven by a desire to bring health, wellness, and natural medicine to all those in need. Their products boast many innovative features that we rarely see in the CBD industry, such as effective herbal formulas or the inclusion of black pepper oil for increased bioavailability. However, a lack of relevant laboratory testing data has forced us to remain skeptical about Hemp Fusion’s level of integrity.
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.
With over 20 years of experience working in the health and wellness industries, Sophia and K. of Amma Life certainly have the credentials needed to bring plant-based medicine to the public. Using only organic and non-GMO hemp, they craft some novel products — including a potent pink paste that is purportedly excessively rich in mouth-watering terpenes. Like many others before them, Amma Life fails to publish relevant CoA’s that would quell a conscious customer’s worried mind
