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.
Perhaps the biggest redeeming factor of Dreem Nutrition is their excitement and dedication to using US grown hemp, and keeping it domestic throughout the entire process. Although they provide some CoAs, the lack of testing for pesticides/herbicides and residual solvents forces us to remain cautiously optimistic about the positive changes dreemnutrition.com supports through their educational content and innovative products.
While Hempgenix caters primarily to wholesale buyers, there’s an abundant variety of desirable items from this remarkable one-stop cannabinoid shop. The fact that hempgenix.us performs some of the most rigorous laboratory testings we’ve seen, and links to each product’s Certificates of Analysis, speaks volumes about their operation (sadly, they don’t produce proof of common contaminant testing). A majority of CBD products they sell are full-spectrum, organic, and made from hemp grown in the US as well, which is worth of extra props in our book.
Ojai Energetics keeps it simple, offering only two products – CBD infused coconut oil and a ‘Super CBD’ tincture. It’s a funny name, but this stuff means business. Ojaienergetics.com makes it clear that they fully understand the scientific processes behind innovating some of the most bioavailable cannabinoid products in existence. With Certificates of Analysis for contaminants testing available for every product you buy, there is little room for improvement at this refreshingly smart and ethical company.
While CBD Unlimited is indeed a fitting name, considering the vast offerings available on their online store, we remain a bit skeptical. Although we rejoice over their use of Colorado-grown hemp, as well as technologically advanced CO2 extraction, the circa 2015-2016 source material test results raised our collective eyebrows. We would love to see fully updated Certificates of Analysis and evidence of charitable endeavors, both of which would give us the confidence to award them a perfect 5/5.
