While we maintain confidence that Vina Bell has the best intentions, there is still ample room for improvement. Hippie-esque products like herbal bath soaks and topical pain spritzers are so cool-sounding that they deserve solid facts to back up their efficacy. We all love plant medicine but have also learned to be wary of bold claims without evidence to substantiate them. Without any CoA’s, and not a lick of discussion on the source material, we are left somewhat empty handed after browsing Vina Bell’s site.
SOL✿CBD is a high integrity brand seeking to provide potent, verified clean hemp in every batch. They use domestic hemp grown in pristine organic conditions in Colorado to provide an even higher quality CBD product. The fact that the Sol CBD team goes so far as to use Miron glass for some of their packaging speaks volumes about the quality of what they produce. If you seek to find a company who is not driven by money but instead to provide quality product and education, Sol CBD is definitely worth a try!
While the dizzying array of research papers on the medicinal applications of CBDs and enticing infographics about ‘Cannium CBD Oil’ gets us excited, all positive feelings come to a screeching halt when realizing a few unfortunate realities: We don’t get to know the origin of their hemp, there is no discussion of laboratory testing for safety, and their testimonials appear fabricated. With little information beyond an image and personal message from their president about CBD chocolates, Lifetech Botanics leaves us with far more questions than answers.
CBD Drip does what very few do – they provide in-depth Certificates of Analysis for every product, listing results for nearly every cannabinoid, terpene, residual solvent, and pesticide known to humankind. While we hope they upload more recent results soon, their passion for full-spectrum cannabinoids is obvious over the years, and the innovation on display with ‘mastercrafted unique blend of terpenes’ in their tinctures is unparalleled. We don’t hesitate for a moment to recommend our readers check out what CBD Drip has to offer.
When it comes to planting the seeds of health and wellness, our hats go off to Cannabidiol Life. They present a wealth of intriguing information on all things CBD. Furthermore, the extraction technique they use, where they cradle hemp in organic ethyl alcohol, seems to be the most high-end method in existence. To our dismay, we’ve yet to see CL publish any information about not only the origin of their source material, but also independent laboratory testing. As such, we are holding out with high hopes to see what comes next from cbdoilsandedibles.com.
CBD BioCare goes to great lengths to provide incredible quality products – from the innovative, permaculture-esque mission of CBD BioCare’s hemp supplier, to their cruelty-free and GMP guarantee, to their recent third party Certificates of Analysis proving their products are free from common contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, and residual solvents. Their MLM program aside, CBD BioCare appears to be a provider of some of the highest quality CBD products available online.
Although the technology behind creating a nano-enhanced CBD water is exciting, and CBD Living Water goes out of their way to post extensive third-party lab testing (plus an extensive testimonials section), we couldn’t find any information regarding the origin of the raw materials they use, or any information about the people behind company. We encourage CBD Living Water to be more transparent about their business, as obtaining the remaining three badges they’re missing requires only an update of their website with verifiable information.
Happy Buddha cultivates their hemp in North Fork Valley, Colorado, the region with the highest concentration of organic farms in the state. While it is unfortunate that there is no discussion of laboratory testing (which means no Certificates of Analysis), their extraction method could perhaps be one of the most forward-thinking process in the industry. It is easy to feel the love and passion that the founders of HappyBuddhaHemp.com put into their products, and as such we feel comfortable recommending them as a promising cannabinoid vendor.
Wildflower signed a wholesale agreement with one of the world’s largest retail brokers, and as such is poised for a prominent role in the CBD industry. Alas, we are sorely disappointed with the lack of discussion on not only source material, but also laboratory testing for common contaminants. With great power comes great responsibility, and we hope that Wildflower steps up to the plate to give the people peace of mind that they are consuming a quality product.
Imbue Botanicals achieves COR’s coveted 5/5 rating for their stellar product line and transparency. There are many positives: first, they cultivate their organic hemp in high altitudes in Colorado, allowing for a more diverse terpene profile. All of their products come packaged in fully recyclable materials, and they not only donate to animal rescues, but also have discounts for the disabled, veterans, and those with low incomes. The testimonials section exemplifies authenticity, and we can wholeheartedly recommend Imbue Botanicals to those in need of hemp-based CBD.
