Gimmicks and marketing jargon are favorite pastimes at CBD Fusion Water, a company offering cannabinoid infused water (then again it may just be plain H2O!) that is the result of a collaboration by the Braintrust (nickname for a group of incompetent doctors). It is curious that a collection of such highly educated individuals chooses to ignore the importance of laboratory testing, and further out-do themselves by choosing not to tell us where their hemp originates or why they care about CBDs. Aside from a good laugh and bad branding, there’s not much one will glean from this shady cannabinoid vendor.
true Facebook Twitter Google+ EmailFollowHemplucid Review: 60-Second Summary Hemplucid starts strong with their “Whole-Plant CBD” product formulations and their “Transparent Guarantee.” Although they have plenty of up-to-date news and articles about CBD, there are no posted test results to back up their ample claims of purity, quality, and even THC content. While Hemplucid appear to …
Although Koi CBD claims to value ‘full traceability’ nothing about their business would indicate this is true. Although there is a published Certificate of Analysis, it is from over a year ago and therefore irrelevant. Although the testimonials section is encouraging, a mournful lack of discussion about the source of the hemp used for extracting the CBD oil is perhaps the final nail in Koi CBD’s coffin.
After years on Wall Street, TreatWell’s founder contracted meningitis and lapsed into a coma, and CBDs helped save his life. TreatWell is his attempt to share cannabinoid therapy with the masses. Unfortunately, for now, one must reside in California to try these 2016 Emerald Cup-winning products. Perhaps the most notable items offered by TreatWell are the THCa and CBDa tinctures, which claim to treat a specific set of illnesses more effectively than CBD alone. If TreatWell were to publish CoAs proving their laboratory testing, they might just find a top spot on our list.
Anybody who’s visited a medical marijuana 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 we are hopeful that they are available upon request (as they do claim to perform such tests). As such, Kiva is really more of a 4.5 as opposed a 4.
Hempotion is yet another example of an outwardly unscrupulous CBD vendor. Whether it’s information on source material, innovative products, a bold and uplifting mission statement, laboratory test results, or charitable intentions that one seeks, disappointment is sure to fill the hearts of any would-be visitors to Hempotion’s site.
As the product offerings are very generic, it is hard not to lose focus and notice several mistakes littered around Holy Grail’s site. At the risk of sounding mean, we feel embarrassed for this business due to their statement that “CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol.” After reading this tragic grammatical failure, we picked up on quite a few other wording quirks on the site that do anything but make us feel like the folks at Holy Grail are conscious and intentional people. The overall vibe is that the site was quickly and carelessly thrown together to cash in on the CBD craze. We don’t have any substantial evidence that Holy Grail is running a shady operation, but as they say, the proof is in the pudding.
There is an abundant amount of anecdotal evidence that alludes to the fact that Dr. Stephen Katz of Therabis offers a strong, effective cannabinoid product for animals. With decades of experience as a veterinarian, and ten years of product development, Dr. Katz’s credentials speak for themselves. However, if what Therabis offers is as radical as they say, they owe it to themselves to publish documentation to verify the safety and quality of their pet-formulated medicinals.
Considering that “Organabus” almost has the word “organic” in their company name, one would expect to see more than a simple “organic” claim and something about quality controls, product safety, even detailed product descriptions and/or ingredients. The lack of company transparency and safety information warrants cautious consumption from our point of view.
CBD Infusions offer some familiar cannabinoid-infused products, but little in the way of information about the safety and efficacy of their products, and their difficult-to-navigate website with sparse product or company information does little to put our minds at ease. We advise steering clear with so many other brands and products available that are more consumer-friendly.
