Where To Buy Quality CBD Hemp Oil Products
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has many health benefits and seems to be relatively well tolerated by many1. CBD is a non-psychoactive component in the hemp plant. Hemp-based CBD oils typically contain very little tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound responsible for the euphoric high of marijuana. So while CBD hemp oils may produce a relaxing effect, it does not have any psychoactive effect.
If you were to scour the internet in search of hemp CBD products you’ll find thousands. Having so many products to choose from can be daunting.
Then, there is the all-too-important fact: most CBD hemp products are unregulated. It is not uncommon for companies with poor practices to sell a ‘CBD’ product with 0% CBD content.
Before making any recommendations, we score each product in the following main categories:
- Product quality and value
- Transparency and accuracy
- User experience
How Our CBD Hemp Oil Product Selection Works:
Product Quality and Value
The product’s quality plays the most important role in making our list. We evaluate the product based on the following questions:
- Quality: What ingredients does this oil contain?
- Extraction: What extraction methods did the company use?
- Sourcing: Where does the plant source come from? Was the hemp plant grown organically? Was it free of heavy metals and pesticides?
- Value: We want to make sure you get the best value for your dollar. The most significant metric to evaluate this is the price per milligram of CBD.
Transparency of the CBD Product
The CBD industry is unregulated. So transparency is incredibly important and the products that make our list are always third-party tested. Any claims they make are independently verified, up-to-date, and easy to find.
The products we choose are guaranteed by the company. Returns are easy and can be made in as little as 30 days after making a purchase. The website that sells these products is reliable and secure.
Any payment details you send are encrypted with SSL certificates. The customer support team is easily accessible via both phone and emails. It’s easy to get in touch with the company to answer all your important questions and make return claims if any.
To help you narrow down your search for the best CBD products, we’ve rounded up our selection of five CBD oil products in the Pacific Northwest region.
It is important to try the product yourself since every individual responds to CBD differently. Make sure to document any positive or negative reactions, and proceed accordingly.
The product is called ‘pure’ because of its high purity, but also because the only compound it contains is CBD. It has no residual THC content. There are no essential oils in the product other than organic MCT oil.
This makes it possible to administer the healing effects of CBD without any of the intoxicating effects of THC. The CBD has been extracted from aerial plant parts. The hemp plant-sourced for the CBD has been grown using natural, organic farming practices.
The plants are commercially grown, non-GMO, and pesticide-free. More importantly, the CBD has been prepared using superior extraction and processing techniques. This eliminates any toxic chemical solvents, reagents, heavy metals, pathogenic microbes, mold, and pesticides.
The recommended mode of administration is the under-the-tongue method. This increases the bioavailability of the product.
CBD oil is clear and tasteless. A single drop is approximately 1mL in quantity. Each drop contains approximately 16.67 mg of CBD. Take the oil orally to help relieve body pain and improve overall health.
2. Hemp CBD Extract (Full Spectrum), 500 mg
If you want the full range of hemp oil benefits this is the product for you. It is called full-spectrum because it contains all of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids of hemp extract.
As is true for all Botany products, the hemp plant is pesticide-free, non-GMO, and gluten-free. The only other ingredient used is organic MCT oil.
The quantity of CBD in full-spectrum hemp extract is effectively halved, for obvious reasons. Each drop (1mL) now yields effectively 8.33 mg of CBD.
This product is perfect if you want to take advantage of the entourage effect. Make sure to consult with your doctor if you are using prescription pain medications, especially if you plan to experiment using hemp oil for helping with pain.
If you want a long-term supply of hemp CBD extract, especially if you find yourself exhausting your existing supplies in a relatively short period of time, then this product should be high on your list. The only catch is, you’ll have to sign up to their waiting list due to high demand.
Perfect for the entourage effect, this product contains no trace THC and won’t make you high. This product is extremely concentrated in CBD, with each drop containing a massive amount of CBD, as much as 166.67 mg.
We strongly recommend consulting your medical doctor, especially if you’re using other pain medications. CBD may effectively increase (or decrease) the potency of other medications. If you start noticing hemp oil CBD side effects, discontinue use immediately and lower your dosage!
In terms of pricing, this product arguably offers one of the highest ‘price to CBD’ ratios out there. It is super effective at activating the entourage effects.
4. CBD Isolate Powder (1 gram to 1 kilogram)
This flavorless isolate is highly efficient at delivering calming and mellow effects. It is not infused with terpenes and flavonoids. CBD is the only phytocannabinoid you will get.
If you are concerned with precision and accuracy, then this is the product you should order. 1 mg of the powder contains 1 mg of CBD at a precise 1:1 ratio. Nothing else is mixed in the product.
This also explains why it is slightly more expensive than the other products on the list, but it is worth it. It is very easy to consume more CBD than you intend to, so our advice is to carefully measure your dosage before ingesting.
This powder can be mixed with other cream and oils. You can use this to make vape juice, salves, edibles, and anything else you might need.
The best part is that there are no artificial colors, preservative, additives, or even MCT oil! Botany offers 1 gram, 5 grams, 25 grams, 100 grams, 500 grams, and the impressive 1000 gram variations. Make sure you don’t ingest more than necessary!
This product is unique, in that, it contains only CBD and CBDV in equal amounts. Cannabidivarin (CBDV) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that won’t induce the feelings of euphoric high.
Together with CBD, CBDV is especially effective at reducing the frequency and severity of seizures. It is naturally helpful for dampening nausea and inflammation.
1 ml drop contains 8.33 mg CBD and 8.33 CBDV with bits of organic MCT oil. No other additives are used. To increase the bioavailability of the CBD+CBDV combo, use the sublingual method.
All products mentioned above are grown using organic hemp extracts.
They promote overall wellbeing and calming state, and can improve focus, mood and mental clarity. CBD and CBDV may also help balance an inflammatory response and support joint health.
