CBDRx Review: 60-Second Summary
We love that CBDRx/Functional Remedies grows their proprietary high-CBD hemp, and practices sustainable and all-natural farming methods to boot. Furthermore, the ‘lipid extraction’ technique may promise a more potent and efficacious product. However, a lack of laboratory testing Certificates of Analysis force us to remain guarded about what looks to be an otherwise an excellent source for CBD products.
CBDRx Brand Review
As CBDRx operates under the umbrella of ‘Functional Remedies,’ we expected to see just that – functional remedies. The term ‘functional’ generally alludes to the inclusion of various herbs, adaptogens, or other supplements designed to support the body’s homeostatic balance; it is difficult to determine what are in these products, as no ingredient panels are listed on their website, and dubbing straight CBD oil as a ‘functional remedy’ is a a bit of a misnomer.
Nevertheless, we applaud vendors like CBDRx/Functional Remedies that cultivate their own hemp, and we also dole out major bonus points for sustainable/organic farming practices. However, this does not make up for a complete lack of discussion about laboratory testing, especially when ‘lipid extraction’ usually calls for the use of hexane. Residual solvents like hexane are such a common contaminant in CBD products that it is of particular importance to see the Certificates of Analysis that would verify the purity of said items. Given that neither FunctionalRemedies.com nor CBDRX.com offer any details on their ‘gentle’ lipid extraction process, it may be better to be safe than sorry, and up-to-date CoAs are some of the things that help keep consumers safe.
All that said, CBDRx and Functional remedies do appear to have a strong commitment to healthy hemp and superior quality hemp products. With so many verifiably trustworthy vendors out there, we recommend cautious optimism until CBDRx and/or Functional Remedies can fully commit to transparency, and provide documentation demonstrating the safety of their products.
