Jolly Green Oil: 60-Second Summary
Jolly Green Oil certainly evokes a fun, happy nature with their CBD edibles. Everything from chocolate covered pretzels to CBD popcorn and lollipops will bring out the kid in anyone. But looks can be deceiving, as rampant artificial flavors and colors lurk in these tasty treats. We’re willing to grant Jolly Green Oil the Safety Badge due to their current disclosure of independent laboratory results. But this exclusively CBD isolate company has a bit further to go to really drive home transparency. Letting us know where and how their CBD hemp is sourced and their extraction method is a great place to start.
Jolly Green Oil Brand Review
Jolly Green Oil handcrafts their CBD oil products in small batches which they winterize. The winterization process involves soaking CBD extract in alcohol, then freezing it to separate the cannabidiol from other remaining plant products like chlorophyll, wax, etc. Winterization is thought to produce a more potent CBD oil with lower traces of terpenes. Because of the alcohol used, it’s imperative that any company winterizing their CBD oil provides comprehensive testing for residual solvents.
And Jolly Green Oil does a good job on the testing front. They have up-to-date, third-party test results for purity and contaminants including heavy metals available for most of their SKUs. We feel confident that their CBD products are safe, free of pesticides and solvents.
Jolly Green Oil exclusively uses CBD isolate in all their offerings. They specialize in CBD vape products which make up the bulk of their line. Their vape cartridges and pods come in two varieties: JGO and JGO+. The former features flavors like pink lemonade and watermelon bomb. Though we can’t be sure due to a lack of ingredients lists, it’s probably safe to assume these contain artificial flavors common in the CBD vape world. The JGO+ line has flavors based on terpenes with common names like OG Kush and Grand Daddy Purple. But again, we don’t know if these products are actually infused with terpenes due to a lack of ingredient disclosure.
Jolly Green Oil also sells CBD vape e-liquids in four flavors (all with artificial ingredients) and tinctures suspended in non-GMO-verified MCT oil for both humans and pets. They sell a third-party brand called Hempmetics on their website as well.
Their edible CBD line is extensive with bubblegum, popcorn, pretzels, candies, gummies, and lollipops. Due to an inordinate amount of artificial flavoring and colors, plus a lack of comprehensive ingredients lists for certain products, we’re not keen on the Jolly Green Oil edibles. They also use titanium dioxide in a few of these CBD edibles, and while this ingredient is thought to be safe by various agencies (there was actually a move to ban it completely in France), we don’t like it.
Echoing that sentiment, because Jolly Green Oil does not provide any information on their source material or extraction method, we won’t be able to award the Quality Badge in this case.
Bottom Line – Jolly Green Oil’s efforts are geared mostly toward the CBD vape customer, with a variety of vape products for sale. They’re on top of their testing, but have a long way to go to qualify for our other badges.
