Therapy Pure Essentials offers something for those who appreciate total simplicity and premium quality: 99.7% pure CBD isolate in a base of organic MCT oil. While their products are a departure from the expected for fans of full-spectrum hemp extracts, their straightforward formulations offer something unique: consistency. Sadly, we have yet to see data that quells our concerns about ingesting contaminants such as heavy metals or residual solvents. Overall, we recommend exploring one’s options before taking a gamble with TPE.
Although no Certificates of Analysis exist at Muscle MX, and information regarding the origin or testing performed on their hemp/CBD is non-existent, we remain cautiously optimistic about this vendor’s future. A seemingly sincere testimonials section, in addition to the passion displayed by the founders on their bio page, make us think Muscle MX are selling themselves short by neglecting to publish essential facts and documents.
Purity and simplicity are ways of life at NuLeaf Naturals; you will be hard-pressed to find another CBD oil with the same level of product consistency and massive consumer backing. Their organic, specially-bred hemp from Colorado receives nourishment from Rocky Mountain spring water before undergoing a highly innovative extraction process, and then being sent to a lab to verify its freedom from contaminants. If NuLeaf Naturals suddenly decided to implement a discount program for the disabled and/or veterans, or donate to a charity, they would quickly earn a perfect 5/5 from us.
While the massive catalog of CBD products available for purchase from PH Secrets is impressive (and a bit daunting), we are concerned that there’s too much quantity and not enough quality. There is no information about laboratory testing or the origin of the hemp/CBD they source – in addition to some bizarre links to off-market pharmaceutical websites inserted throughout PHSecrets.com – which indicates to us what the real motive behind PH Secrets is: profit.
Although Amrita’s fondness for the Vedic mythology surrounding cannabis illuminates the imagination, it is not nearly enough to justify a lack of discussion on the source material. Furthermore, claims of third-party laboratory testing do not have the backing offered by proper Certificates of Analysis. Finally, as living the state of California (and being 21 or older) is a prerequisite to making a purchase, Amrita is likely not ideal for many CBD consumers.
While US-based customers need not apply, PharmaHemp remains an enticing option for our friends across the Atlantic. While the lack of Certificates of Analysis is something needing immediate attention, we can’t ignore the passion PharmaHemp demonstrates for CBDs. Hand-selected seeds and flowers grown in the subalpine regions of Croatia and Slovenia give us great hope that PharmaHemp has some truly wonderful products.
Try the CBD dazzles us with their integrity and thorough attention to some crucial details. First by sourcing organic hemp from Colorado, then by implementing advanced CO2 extraction techniques, thirdly by offering a broad (but not overwhelming) array of CBD formulations, and finally by publishing up-to-date Certificates of Analysis on each new batch of material. The discount program offered to students, veterans, the disabled, and those with low-incomes/Social Security is the cherry on top of the CBD cake. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend any and all in need of cannabinoids to Try the CBD.
While we were touched by founder Cole Stegman’s story of rags to riches, we were left wanting a lot more substance from Zakah Life. We love their straightforward formulations, but loosely throwing around terms like ‘full-spectrum’ and ‘laboratory testing’ with no real substantiation of said claims leaves us feeling skeptical. All in all, ZL feels too much like a marketing experiment, rather than an authentic cannabinoid vendor.
With their mission statement being about leading the food and beverage industry, it is a head-scratcher as to why Sadica are selling mostly topicals (although more consumables are listed under their “Coming Soon” page). While this mission-driven company claims to use cutting-edge quality testing that’s verified by third party laboratories, without Certificates of Analysis, no discussion on the origin or cultivation of the hemp plants, and very little information available on each product, we are forced to remain skeptical for now.
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.
