Hemplucid 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 have good intentions, a lack of basic, relevant product safety information leaves us puzzled – especially in light of how much other great information they provide about CBD.
Hemplucid Brand Review
Right off the bat, we’re alarmed that search results show that they call their products “legal medical marijuana,” as no such thing exists for purchase online. We hope that’s merely an artifact of a previous incarnation of their website, as a more recent update clarifies things. Hemplucid utilizes what they call “Whole-Plant CBD” (minus natural plant waxes and other resins) in their products, which are made from “plants bred over nearly a decade to consistently produce a hemp strain that is low in THC, but high in CBD and other cannabinoids” and further claims to produce oils that are rich in terpenes thanks to supercritical CO2 extraction methods.
Hemplucid further claims to use nano-particle technologies and multi-step bonding practices that bond their hemp oil to vegetable glycerine to improve taste and smell – two significant barriers even for savvy cannabis consumers.
Products on HempLucid.com range in price from $35 to $85 and include items such as a vape oil, tinctures, a water-soluble concentrate, softgels, body butter, and water-soluble options as well. Their products are simply formulated, which we really like – artificial colors and other unnecessary additives are far too common in the CBD space – and their tinctures in particular run the gamut of preferred CBD oil varieties: nano-encapsulated (water soluble), MCT, and hemp seed oil.
It’s a shame one has to go to Hemplucid’s wholesale website to get a glimpse of the company’s mission, as if the statements they make on their site to the quality of their products are true, then they are offering some excellent products developed with heart and healing in mind.
Sadly, we have no indication that Hemplucid chooses to perform laboratory testing, despite their August 2017 blog post detailing that one should seek out third-party CoAs and other standard proof-of-quality measures when choosing a CBD product. While they claim that their source materials are grown to organic standards and verified as free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants (we again had to go to their wholesale website to find this information), because they offer no CoAs of their own we are forced to question those claims. There aren’t even any details about the origin of their source material – only that their end products are manufactured in the US.
Even if a particular company falls short of a few marks, we can consider getting on board if we at least know who cultivates the hemp, how they grow it, and whether or not their products meet basic safety standards. While their growing sampling of customer testimonials is a step in the right direction, if Hemplucids’ hearts are in the right place, we would just really like to see more proof of it.
