CTFO stands for Changing the Future Outcome. Of what, we’re not quite sure. CTFO offers a large variety of CBD-based products and many products that contain no CBD at all. Their focus seems to be largely on marketing, offering individuals free, tailor-made websites to sell their product line. Think Mary Kay for the CBD business. We were able to award CTFO a badge for quality but could not in good conscience grant them our approval in safety, innovation, charity, and mission.
Meet the famous CBD brand originally made for women. Foria dramatically hit the scene by introducing a cannabis tampon for menstrual relief that took the country by storm. Since, they have developed non-THC products featuring their pure CBD extract, organic MCT oil sourced solely from coconuts, and other organic plant-based ingredients to boost the wellness of everyone, not just the ladies. We are impressed by Foria’s sustainable business practices and their exciting, unique product offerings.
The individuals at Procana seem to focus most of their attention on the research and science behind cannabinoid therapy. It still came as a surprise, however, that there are no Certificates of Analysis for laboratory testing on any of their CBD products. Also, we felt put off by the lack of discussion regarding not only the source of their hemp but the extraction techniques they employ. Until Procana publishes the relevant information, we are recommending shopping elsewhere for your CBD.
PureKana utilizes novel strains of industrial hemp that have more flowers and a higher concentration of cannabinoids. Their product line is sleek and focused on quality rather than a barrage of options. Purekana did not qualify for the Safety Badge, falling short as they do not provide a Certificate of Analysis for each batch of product. And their charity work could use improvement too. With some minor enhancements, we can envision ranking PureKana higher among our community of trusted vendors.
HMP2GO fails with style. While ‘Pure Rocky Mountain water infused with hemp-derived organic, micro-encapsulated CBD’ certainly sounds enticing, there are precisely zero facts to back up any of the claims made by this company. Considering we are left in the dark regarding the source material, extraction methods, and laboratory testing, we recommend steering clear of HMP2GO.com.
You won’t find any olives or bread at Italian-based Enecta – instead, their focus is on treating cannabis, the Earth, and people with respect and care. Though Enecta’s motives appear to be pure, we would like to see Certificates of Analysis to substantiate the claim of rigorous laboratory testing so that our skepticism may vanish. We would also be delighted to hear more about the hemp plants they use, as well as how the CBDs are extracted – with all these nuggets of essential information we may feel norms comfortable recommending our readers try enecta.com’s products.
“Healthy plants, healthy people, healthy planet.” This is the ethos that drives Veritas Farms, a family owned business that oversees all stages of production on their farm in southern Colorado. Here is a group that prides themselves on transparency and a passion for sustainability. They claim to consider a triple bottom line that encompasses the plants they grow, the people they help, and the money they save. And we think they have the processes and company culture to back it up.
Ambary Gardens has a grassroots feel and an obvious hyper-focus on their innovative greenhouse grow operation. They are committed to sustainability in everything they do. Onsite, Ambar Gardens is constantly adapting to utilize the best organic methods to care for each individual plant. When it comes to outside sourcing for items like their topical products, they only use ethical, earth-friendly vendors. We recognize this brand for its genuine passion for the cultivation of clean, organic hemp as a labor of love.
A passionate group of Colorado natives decided people have a right to first-rate hemp extract as an alternative method to combat health issues. And CBDistillery was born. CBDistillery categorically covers the gamut of CBD products with everything from suppositories to vape pens. Their sources are clean and sustainable, and we find them to be exceedingly transparent with their schedule of regular third-party testing. A 10% discount for veterans and active-duty military personnel is offered in perpetuity, evidence that this is a company that cares.
As the name suggests, Prime Sunshine is all about the great outdoors. When the founder experienced a huge boon to her wellness regime from full spectrum, outdoor hemp, she decided to offer others the same gift. All Prime Sunshine’s products are non-GMO, pesticide-free, and contain zero preservatives or isolate. What we find very interesting is their process rooted in health and science. While they have a couple of shortcomings, this is a brand worth checking out.
