CBD American Shaman is one of the best CBD brands for any experience level. If you’re new to CBD products, you’ll love their huge selection of products including oils, topicals, edibles, teas, and more. If you’re a seasoned veteran of CBD products, you’ll love their extreme transparency by having all of their 3rd-party lab reports available right on their website.
Using their proprietary nanotechnology, they’re able to break down their CBD oil to a water-soluble level which is unique to most types of oils. Their water-soluble CBD oil can be absorbed into the bloodstream faster than traditional CBD oil and it allows them to produce a wider range of products.
Featured on the 2013 CNN documentary “Weed,” Charlotte’s Web has been a pioneer in the CBD industry. They’ve worked to perfect everything from developing CBD-rich marijuana plants to producing premium full-spectrum CBD products. The main reason they were featured in the documentary was to help bring awareness to the difficulties in treating toddlers and children who suffer from epilepsy.
The company is named after Charlotte Figi, who suffers from epileptic seizures and found comfort in their THC-Free CBD oil. Charlotte’s Web takes their production process very seriously and offers absolute transparency through their website. Simply go to their “Certificate of Analysis” page, enter the product’s lot number, and you’ll be able to see all of the test results for that individual batch.
They offer 100% full-spectrum CBD oils, capsules, gummies, and more, but our favorite product is their CBD isolate. The isolate gives you the freedom to make your own CBD-infused edibles at home. Bake some CBD-infused chocolate chip cookies, add it to your favorite moisturizer, or throw some in your morning coffee. The possibilities are endless.
Unlike most CBD brands, Functional Remedies is another company that controls the entire production process from seed to bottle. Their Chief Science Officer, Tim Gordon, has 25+ years of experience developing CBD rich hemp strains and is one of the leading consultants on hemp growing and legislation. Combine that with their patented extraction process, Functional Remedies offers some of the most nutrient-dense CBD products in the industry.
Their full-spectrum hemp oil is hand-pressed which avoids chemical solvents and high pressure from traditional CO2 extraction. It’s also preserved using their proprietary LipidTrans™ process. What you’re left with are the highest quality CBD products that are 3rd-party tested for CBD levels and impurities every step of the way.
Even though they only offer oil tinctures, capsules, and salves, they are the top 3 most effective delivery methods for CBD. On top of that, they were the first CBD company to earn 3 Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certifications for food, cosmetics, and dietary supplements.
Kats Botanicals goes above and beyond providing just CBD products by featuring other unique and effective botanicals like Kratom, Turmeric, and more. They are also one of the best companies at self-regulation in a mostly unregulated industry.
Produced in the USA, they source all of their hemp from certified organic farms in Colorado. Their company enlists farmers, doctors, and chemists with decades of experience to bring a well-rounded understanding of all the steps to producing extremely high-quality, full-spectrum CDB products. Their unique hybrid alcohol extraction method is followed by a few extra steps to ensure that their finished products are free of all solvents, impurities, and other undesirable ingredients.
Nanocraft CBD is our favorite brand for active people looking to get all the benefits of CBD. Along with their premium CBD oils and capsules, they feature CBD infused superfood powders.
Specifically designed for athletes and fitness fanatics, their CBD Energy + Recovery powder also includes BCAA’s, antioxidants, and essential vitamins. You can easily add a scoop to your shaker bottle, fresh juice, or homemade smoothies. Their CBD infused Superfood Greens powder is bursting with micro-nutrients, probiotics, and antioxidants that provide balanced nutrition for anyone looking for a healthy boost.
Nanocraft CBD uses food-grade ethanol to safely extract the full-spectrum hemp oil and finishes the process off by distilling the oil for added purity. They also use proprietary technology to remove ALL traces of THC, wax, chlorophyll, and plant pigments to produce extremely pure CBD products.
With so many companies out for profit alone, it’s refreshing to see a company like Not Pot support such an important national cause. Besides federal marijuana legalization, their main cause is fighting the racial bias and other injustices stemming from our current marijuana laws.
Every month, Not Pot pays for the bail of someone in need through The Bail Project (A non-profit organization designed to combat mass incarcerations). Getting the ball rolling on the larger goal of marijuana legalization is only the icing on the cake though. Their gummies are some the tastiest edibles that we’ve had the pleasure of trying out.
