Wondering about CBD oil and hemp? I had been wondering about it too, and what I found out was simply fascinating.

Here’s the story of our CBD experience–I think you’ll be as amazed as we were. Truly, CBD oil has changed our lives.

Hemp Leaf - our family's CBD experience

This is a post that I never thought I would write.

A post about my family and CBD–as in hemp. Seriously.

Well, I’m writing this.

CBD, CBD oil, medical marijuana, and hemp oil have all been in the news a lot recently.

And it’s all created quite a stir. People have been touting the beneficial effects of the hemp and marijuana plants (they are 2 different things), but I remained fairly skeptical. I mean, I really love this Vegan Ranch Dressing that’s loaded with hemp seeds, but this?

I saw articles about people feeling better while using marijuana for medicinal purposes, and I would hesitatingly think I supported this kind of use, but something always held me back.

Well, I’m glad that “something” budged.

We haven’t used medical marijuana, but we did end up using a CBD-rich hemp oil, and it has literally changed our lives.

A number of months ago, I became aware of a company that was selling CBD oil. I showed my husband the information and he said, “Get it.”

He had just seen an article by a conservative author who had been a former skeptic turned “believer” when she tried medical marijuana on her child.

So, I got it.

Long story short, I started doing research and was pretty excited about what I found, but I kept digging and digging and of course wanted to try it on my family before saying anything to my readers.

Now I have a story to tell.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD-rich hemp oil is not marijuana or pot.

And it’s not hemp oil like the kind you put on your salad or make dressing from. That hemp oil is made from seeds (like the hemp seeds in this vegan ranch dressing).  This is made from industrial hemp. Hemp is a relative of marijuana, but it isn’t marijuana.

CBD stands for cannabidiol and CBD-rich hemp oil is made from hemp that is cultivated to have higher amounts of CBD. CBD is only one of 85 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, one of which is THC (the one that makes you high).

CBD has many health benefits that you can read about on the internet. You can also do an internet search for “CBD & ____” filling in the blank for health conditions and see what the research says. You will be shocked!

Anyhow, I was nervous about medical marijuana and all. I’m not one for big government and them regulating things, but still, marijuana makes me nervous.

But this is different.

This is “Healthy–Not High.”

And CBD Oil is also not Copaiba Oil (an essential oil that is often compared to CBD oil. If you’ve heard that they are the same, you can read this post on Copaiba vs. CBD to find out how those two differ.

Well, today I’m sharing something with you that I NEVER expected I would be writing.

First, because it has to do with hemp, and secondly because of the AMAZING impact this had on our lives.

Get ready to be amazed. My eyes are literally welling up with tears as I write this.

My Family’s CBD Experience

Following are our experiences with CBD oil. We tried several companies and I have continued to research to make sure I have good products to recommend to you.

My Son’s CBD Experience

PANIC EPISODES – GONE!

Literally, since the day he started taking CBD oil, my son has had none. ZERO panic episodes.

None.  Here is his story in detail.

Two to three weeks after he started using CBD oil, we had an incredibly stressful week. My sister and her boyfriend came into town and we went around town with them and stayed up ’til the wee hours of the morning talking.

And talking. And not just about simple things–these were deep talks about intense topics. They were actually amazing, but stressful in a good way.

MORE STRESS – AND STILL NO EPISODES!

My son was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (which is on the autistic spectrum) about 9 years ago. One of the symptoms of Asperger’s is focused attention, or an obsession, about a certain topic, or topics.

My son’s main obsession is sports. He loves watching sports, listening to sports, reading about sports, memorizing sports rules, learning sports statistics, and playing sports. Sports, sports, and more sports.  Did I say “sports” :)?

Hockey, however is his favorite sport of all time.

Anyhow, the week that my sister and her boyfriend were visiting overlapped with his hockey camp.

My Son’s CBD Experience–Stress Test #1:

We were in the middle of preparing a late dinner and my husband took my son to his camp. About 20 min after they left, the phone rang.

It was my son.

Son: “Um…Mom, I got the times wrong and today’s camp is over. They changed the schedule and I missed the email.”

Me : (worried) “I’m sorry. Well, at least you get to come home and spend time with us.”

Son: “Yeah.”

Me: “Are you OK?”

Son: “I’m fine. See you soon.”

I seriously asked him again if he was OK because I couldn’t believe my ears. He repeated that he was OK and they came home and we had a great rest of the evening together.

Now, typically missing something sports related, especially hockey, would have resulted in a LOT of stress. As in a panic episode.

But this time–nothing.

In addition, the man who runs the league had basically chewed him out for missing the practice, even though the confusion was partially the team’s oversight due to the way they notified kids in an unmarked email.

Typically, getting reprimanded by an authority figure is another thing that would set my son, but he weathered this OK too.

My Son’s CBD Experience–Test #2

The next day, our company left. We had little sleep the night before (as in, the worst bedtime we had ever had) and said good-bye to them after spending some time at a local large botanical garden in 90+-degree humid weather.

Humid ickiness PLUS bad sleep.

We went home, got some things together and then headed out the door, planning to drop my oldest off at hockey camp before heading to a cookout, but we were running late.

When we were almost there, my son realized that he had forgotten his socks. (Note–it was summer – typically he doesn’t have to remember socks since he’s normally skating in the winter.)

So Dad got mad at him, but my son said calmly, “That’s OK–I’ll just go to the cookout with you.”

Now, this might not seem like a big deal to you, but again, we’re talking hockey, and we were already late (a stressor) and my son didn’t really want to go to the cookout since he didn’t think any of his friends would be there.

TYPICAL PANIC EPISODE

Typically in this situation, the following would happen:

Oldest would start panicking and Son #2 would start teasing Son #1. Then Son #1 would get REALLY upset and Dad would be yelling, fearing an accident. Yup – total family CHAOS!!

This time? Nothing.

Now we realized something was really going on.

Something had changed.

What would have normally led to a full-blown episode was just no. big. deal.

MORE BENEFITS

Over the next week or so, we noticed other things that had changed. He had:

Flexibility – While doing family exercise (we love T Tapp), he was able to bend farther and is more flexible overall.

Social Skills  – when approaching and interacting with other kids and when talking with other adults, things are so much smoother and his eye contact is better!

Household Chores – No one likes doing these, but our oldest has struggled with not knowing what to do and needing direction pretty much all the time. Well, since starting CBD oil, he’s a different kid. He actually walks around finding ways to help. Without being asked.

Amazing.

One weekend, we ran into a friend at Costco. We talked forever (she’s that kind of friend :)), and she was shocked at the changes in him. So much so that she came over that week to buy a bottle from me.

There’s more….

My Husband’s CBD Experience

Focus, Motion Illness, Sleep, and Improved Digestion (yup–poop is better!)

FOCUS

My husband LOVES books. He is an English Professor and has LOADS of books. I like books, but not moldy books (see this post on mold toxicity to see why).

Well, he has a lot of old books in his office and every time we go there, the boys and I don’t feel well from the mold that’s obviously in them. I’ve asked him to ditch them for years, but he didn’t–well, MAYBE he’d ditch one or two. After using this oil for about 2 weeks, we went to his office and I started begging him to move some more books out. He wasn’t happy, but soon he was doing it too.

The next day–get this–he called from his office telling me he’d gotten rid of 100+ books!

I’ve also heard from others that CBD oil has helped them to focus and get things done that they somehow hadn’t been able to do before.

MOTION SICKNESS

Flying and my hubby don’t get along well. Typically, every 4th flight or so he would vomit on a plane. Well, when he returned from a trip soon after starting the CBD, he texted me from the driveway “4 flights–no nausea!”

I didn’t know what to think, but I quickly googled “CBD + motion sickness” and sure enough–it was the oil!!

DIGESTION

For years, poor digestion has been one of my husband’s “issues”. Well, since starting the oil, he’s actually maybe been in the bathroom more than usual so I didn’t think to talk about it and wasn’t really expecting anything.

Well, about a week ago, a friend asked me about a digestive autoimmune condition that she has and I remember that my husband had the same diagnosis. So I went and asked him how “poop” was going.

I said, “So I’ve noticed you’ve been in the bathroom more recently. Can you tell me if you’ve been in there longer because you’ve been having the same issues in the bathroom or have you been reading books on your new cell phone?”

To which he answered:

“I’ve been reading.”

And then he told me some things about his poop that you don’t need to know.

Let’s just say pooping is a lot better :).

Son #2’s CBD Experience

Our other son has severe head pains that led to vomiting on occasion. He hasn’t been as consistent in using CBD oil but these have been significantly reduced.

So now I just need to get him to be more consistent and see where this goes :).

What are the Health Benefits of CBD?

If you’re wondering if this can help you, or someone you love, there are many things that people are seeing CBD benefits. Just google any illness or condition and CBD.

Prepare to be amazed because the information is vast and it’s gaining a lot of interest.

Projectcbd.org is a good place to investigate too. (Just be aware that there are 3rd party sites advertising on here and some links to companies that aren’t necessarily reputable.)

I used to have information in this post stating that unless an oil was sourced overseas and only from stalk and (possibly) seed, it wasn’t legal to sell it across state lines.

This doesn’t appear to be the case.

The laws can be murky but most companies feel that legally it’s fine to buy CBD oil in all 50 states. Some companies take a more conservative approach.

New Oil CBD Experience

Here are some of our son’s experiences since trying out the newer CBD oils on this page.

Getting “UNSTUCK”

Mornings are usually VERRRRRRY slow for my son.

Typically we’ve all been downstairs and taken our morning supplements (probiotics and such) and our oldest is still upstairs. He’s either spending too much time on his routine, or daydreaming and dawdling to excess.

Not this morning. He was there in the kitchen earlier than usual.  I asked him what was up with that and he said,…

“Well, I realized in the middle of what I was doing that I didn’t need to do that right then and that I should come down and do what was more important.”

I almost fell over.

THIS is one of the BIGGEST things that we have been hoping for–his being able to get “unstuck” with different behaviors.

Coordination

The next day or so, he was sitting in a chair in the living room, tossing a ball back and forth from hand to hand. And he was doing it pretty quickly.

He commented, “Look, Mom, don’t you think I’m more coordinated than usual?”

Um–yes. He was right.

I keep looking at him in different situations, realizing how much more connected he is. It’s just so great!

My Results

I feel more motivated and have more energy.

Here’s an example: We are having some issues with the windows in our house with condensation, and we had an appointment (I thought) with a window repairman.  Well, I thought he was just going to be looking at 3 rooms, but when I woke up in the morning, MOST ALL of our windows had condensation on them, and I’m REALLY allergic to mold.  So visions of toxic mold filled my mind and I realized that now we had to get our WHOLE house ready for someone to go through it and inspect windows.

Yikes!!

Seriously–we cleaned the whole house. In about 4 hours.

AND I did most of the work.

Typically, I would have collapsed after something like this, or due to adrenal fatigue, my adrenals would have tanked and I would have slept horribly.

Neither happened. I had a lovely night out at a church’s Christmas dinner and slept 8 hours through.

IMPORTANT UPDATE– At one point, I found that when taking some CBD oils, I got anxiety after a few days. This happened with all of the oils that I tried until I tried the new one in this post–LivLabs.  I think it’s that I wasn’t doing well with any THC. That has changed since then.

My Recommendations for CBD-Rich Hemp Oil

There are many many CBD companies out there, and just like when I sought to find the best essential oils company, I found that things in this industry is confusing too–a lot of monkey business going on.

(Don’t get me started about untruths in the personal care industry. I’ve had to remove several skincare and cosmetics companies off of my blog due to mislabeling, ethics, and other issues–there is a bunch of slipshod stuff going on all over the place like not disclosing artificial fragrances, not testing for heavy metals in cosmetics, lying about ingredients, and more.)

My trust is hard-earned.

I try my best to work as hard as I can to find the best–but sometimes I make mistakes.

The first two CBD companies that I worked with were just mistakes. Things started out OK later all kinds of things went wrong including questions not being answered–never a good thing!

The first oil we tried was from a direct sales company that had scientist behind their oils who is highly regarded in the holistic community as a mastermind of detox.

We tried the oil and my son and husband had the results that I originally shared in this post.

As time went on, however, things troubling issues became so prevalent that I had to make a change. There were times when affiliates weren’t paid, labs were shared without chemist’s signatures, misleading pricing statements, and more.

So I decided we needed to keep looking and find a few honest companies with good products that work well.

I will add that I have refused to work with some companies that have pursued me, due to shady marketing, misleading labs (one of them seems to have someone signing off on their labs that doesn’t even have a lab!)

What to Look for in a CBD Company

Sourcing:

One of the things to look out for is clean sourcing.

This is CRUCIAL since hemp is a detoxifier and has even been used to clean up toxic waste. It takes up toxins from the soil so you don’t want hemp that isn’t grown organically, and even more than organically grown, you want NO pesticides and herbicides and also test results showing no toxins remaining.

This is a supplement that you will likely be taking each and every day so don’t mess around.

Extraction

There are varying thoughts on this topic, but keep in mind that there is almost always residue of whatever is used to extract the oil. One company, CW Hemp, uses isopropyl alcohol to extract much of their hemp.

Testing

Just like with evaluating essential oils companies, you want a copy of the lab results with the chemist’s signature visible.

Full Spectrum vs Isolate

Although there has been a lot of research on CBD isolate, it’s well known that there are more benefits from a full-spectrum oil than from an isolate.

Additives

It’s not necessarily bad for an oil to have additives, but you want them to be healthy additions to the final product rather than fillers or toxins.hem

My Recommendations for CBD Oil

Following are a variety of companies that I feel confident recommending.

1. Amare Hemp GBX+ ($10 off with this link)

I love Amare for their mental wellness / gut-brain axis support. Their products work very well, and their Fundamentals and MOOD are 2 things I don’t ever want to be without.

Their attention to detail is pretty much unsurpassed in the direct sales market, and they answer ALL of my questions (which for sure isn’t typical as you might know if you’ve been around here for awhile).

I haven’t personally tried their CBD oil (will soon!) but I love the information on it and the added ingredients for more benefits.

Here are the details:

Full Spectrum: This product is full spectrum, including not just CBD, but the other cannabinoids and terpenes as well.

Third Party Verified: Sources derived and grown in the U.S. from seed stock that is verified to be certified industrial hemp

Added Benefits: Added to the organic hemp are organic black pepper oil, frankincense oil, and black cumin seed oil, each of which lead to a more complete activation across the entire endocannabinoid system. These ingredients activate both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, gut and immune system.

Results: TBD

THC

Since this is a full spectrum product, there is some THC in it.

Sourcing

The hemp is grown organically.

Pricing

The pricing is on the site-there is retail pricing as well as member pricing and you can get $10 off by using my link if you are a new customer. If you stay on Subscribe and Save, you get points back with each order, adding up eventually to 25%.

Return Policy

Their return policy is an unbelievable 1 year open bottle money back guarantee–as it is with all of their products.

Shipping

Shipping is free.

Usage Info

For best bioavailability, I’ve heard to put the oil in your mouth and hold for about a minute and then swallow.

Note that Amare does not ship to Idaho, South Dakota Nebraska or Iowa.

2. Purium – $50 off with code wholenewmom

Purium’s CBD oil is 50 mg CBD per serving, in a 1500 mg total bottle.

Purium CBD oil

Full Spectrum: This product is full spectrum, including not just CBD, but the other cannabinoids and terpenes as well.

Results: Some people love this product over others, saying it gives them results over other brands. It really depends on you and what works best for your body.

THC

This is a combination of full spectrum and isolate, so there is some THC in the product.

Sourcing

The hemp is grown in Kentucky or Colorado without any artificial ingredients, and is delivered in an organic hemp seed oil.

Pricing

There is retail pricing as well as member pricing but you get $50 off your first order using code wholenewmom. As a preferred customer, you get 25% off monthly orders or autoship–otherwise you get 15% off.

Return Policy

Purium has a 60 day money back guarantee.

Shipping

Shipping is $9.95 at the time of writing this post.

Usage Info

Purium’s CBD comes in a convenient spray bottle–less messy than dropper bottles, and of course not likely to spill.

Availability

Currently not available in Canada, Nebraska or Kansas.

3. LivLabs

4. 4 Corners Cannabis – 10% off

4 Corners Cannabis has very interesting oil. It seems to be quite potent, so even though it costs more, you could possibly get the same results with less oil.

The oil is grown from the flowers of a specially cultivated hemp plant and extracted using ethanol (they say this yields a complete extraction as opposed to a full one), and they have been growing hemp for decades.

Note – I used to have information in this post stating that ethanol extraction removes some of the components of the plant, but that doesn’t appear to be true.

You can shop here and use code wholenewmom to get 10% off your order.

Legal in all 50 states

Guaranteed Amount of CBD

Packaging

The dropper is convenient, but we had a hard time getting the top off of the bottle. Once it got totally stuck. Others have said they didn’t have that problem so perhaps it was just us :).

Returns

If you are unsatisfied, you can return your unopened bottle(s) within 30 days.

Product Selection

The company has pet products and a lovely salve.

Shipping

Shipping is a $5 flat rate.

Which CBD-rich Hemp Oil Should You Buy?

1. If you were to experience a false positive on a drug screen test, would that be a problem?

The LivLabs oil is the best option in this case, either the dropper or the capsule.

Additionally, since this oil is supposed to be more bioavailable, you most likely need to use less than other oils.

2. How much CBC-rich hemp oil should you take?

Our son is 17 and takes only about 6-12 mg a day, but we hope to increase that a bit. Everyone is different. Some take 50 mg or more a day, but we have found that we don’t need that much.

I hope this has been helpful. If need be, I will change the companies in this post, but as of now, these are companies that I feel confident about.

Have you heard of or tried CBD?
I would love to hear about your CBD experience!

    1. Looks like it’s made from an isolate which many in the industry would say isn’t superior b/c it isn’t full spectrum. I have heard of people saying that they get good results, however. Hope that helps!

  1. Do you have any other recommendations for a THC free oil than LivLabs? I don’t tolerate stevia very well or THC and I live in KS… Thanks

    1. Hi there–so sorry for the delay. We had some major health issues that took over for awhile. Did you take a look at the softgels–that would be a good option. If you still need assistance, let me know. I have been working on some other alternatives.

  2. Hello!

    I ordered from LivLabs per your recommendation and got on the recurring order list. I have sent several e-mails requesting to end my orders from them and cannot get them to return an e-mail or take me off the subscription. I keep getting the drops and getting charged and cannot afford this anymore … I am writing to see if you know how I can reach a person to talk to? Thanks for any help! Laur

    1. Glad to hear it–please no self promoting on my site–sorry but I had to edit your name to make you “Anonymous.”

  3. Correct. The CBDa in Livelabs looks to be a very limited amount. But for all I know the CBDa doesn’t really matter.

    Yes they’re a small local company,

    1. Are there labs for the CBD101 company that show the amounts of endocannabinoids and testing for contaminants as well?

        1. Sorry I really don’t know what else to say w/o seeing their labs. But if you don’t see any I personally wouldn’t be comfortable buying from them.

  4. It is confusing. Not interested in cancer part either. That’s just part of their statement. I meant they offer a raw version and a Decarboxylated CBD Oil version.

    1. So they have one that is all CBDa and one that is all CBD w/ no CBDa? I’m saying that LivLabs has both. I have never heard of their company and they don’t seem to have a real online presence. Just a side note.

  5. Hi Adrienne,

    Thank you for you diligent and ethical research. It’s a huge help. Do you know if Livlabs Hydro product is raw? I didn’t see anything on their site stating so. A place called CBD 101, in Ventura California, only produces raw cbd oil. They stress that makes a big difference on the efficacy of the product. Have you learned anything about that in your research?

    Thank You,
    California

    1. Hi there–I have never heard about that—in fact, I have heard the opposite–that raw isn’t better. Decarboxylating is the term for a chemical reaction that is an important step in producing CBD oil–removing a carboxyl group and releasing carbon dioxide. It changes CBDa to CBD and changes other components of the hemp as well.

      What I am reading is that with time this will happen as well but I do not know about how much is converted and at what time. I can try to find out more. I didn’t see if their products are grown w/ any pesticides or herbicides. Did you see that? Thanks!

      1. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and reply. That is interesting about the Decarboxylating. I’m new to all this and fairly ignorant. CBD 101 gave me an info card that claimed the combo of CBDa and CBD was good.
        Let me know what you find. I’m looking to treat my body as best I can!

        1. Hi again! So to follow their thinking….one would want a combination of raw and not raw CBD oil, correct? I do recall reading about this somewhere but perhaps I’m not remembering all the details–please do let me know. Thanks!

          1. The CBDa looks very low in Livelabs.

            CDB 101 states this:

            “Our CBD goes through the cleanest CO2 extraction process yielding the highest possible amount of raw CBD in our oils. We believe in raw CBD – your body knows what to do with raw plants. Just like with any plant or vegetable, heating up CBD eliminates valuable compounds, nutrients and vitamins that are necessary in the healing process of our bodies.”

            They offer Deacarb:

            “Our Decarboxylated CBD Oil has been heated up at a low temperature, converting the CBD-A (raw CBD) to a higher potency of CBD. For people that need that extra kick, women fighting breast cancer and addicts needing assistance weaning off drugs (and staying off of them) we recommend our Decarboxylated CBD Oil.”

            1. Hi there. I’m happy to dig into this more but this is confusing to me.

              First of all, I’m not going to talk about cancer here.

              There is a lot of information about the benefits of raw foods but also some practitioners say that heating is better. For example, carrots are typically thought to be digested better than raw. So I don’t think that just b/c they believe it makes it truth.

              I thought you said that they have both but their statement above leads me to think that they are converting the CBDa – which is it? thanks!

    1. Hi there Christy. The serving size (these aren’t medications so I’m not talking about dosages) that we use varied. Our oldest, as noted in the post, only takes a small amount of the LivLabs – he used 1 pump of the Purium and only uses about 3 drops of the LivLabs in addition to the omega noted in the post. We have thought about him using more but he feels good like this. I am only using about 4 drops per day. The others in our family use more. Many people use about 1/2 ml am and 1/2 ml pm of the LivLabs. It really varies per person re: desired result and how it works for each individual.

  6. Hello Adrienne,

    Your detailed analysis of essential oils, CBD vs Copaiba
    is impressive, to say the least. Your recommended suppliers
    of CBD oil are also accurate and I’ve ordered from a couple of them.

    However, the best that I’ve used so far is from CTFO.
    I especially like the new 10X CBD oil. Their prices are competitive,
    customer service is superb and the product is made in the US. And you
    don’t have a monthly commitment.

    Keep up the fantastic work and be well.

    RH

    1. Hi there. I think this is a complicated topic and people respond to different brands differently. I find that company to be odd in its marketing and they seem to keep changing what they are doing re: what they are marketing. I haven’t looked into their labs in quite awhile–I’ve been concentrating on other things. Thanks for reading and for the kind words.

  7. Great Stuff.. It seems, you have researched a lot before posting the blog. Thank you for sharing such a important information, as rarely people know this use of CBD. I know about CBD but not aware the CBD can be use in this way as well.

    1. Thank you so much. I try to do that as much as I am able. Another heavily researched post on this topic and on air filtration should be coming soon–one of them possibly today!

  8. I think that you should check out Dr. CBD – he has the best product on the internet. Highly recommended! (link removed by blog owner).

    1. Thanks. Can you tell me why you think that it’s the best? Do you work with or for this company? I’m getting a lot of “readers” dropping names of companies and links hoping to get traffic and sales. Thank you!

  9. I am looking for something to help with focus, anxiety and OCD. Which CBD brand would you recommend most for that? Purium or Livlabs? I also saw you mention a $25 sample bottle of the Livlabs. How could I purchase one? Thanks!!

    1. Hi there. I can’t medically advise but I can say that everyone is different. Some will like an oil w/ a little THC and some will not. The Purium one has a tiny tiny bit and the LivLabs has none, but the LivLabs is water soluble and nano so it’s more effective. Both companies have great return policies so you really can’t go wrong with either. If you decide you would still like a sample you can email me. I don’t offer returns for samples, however. Thanks for reading!

    1. Interesting – what did you find to be different? One thing I would be concerned about is that there isn’t any information there about testing for toxins.

      1. Tincture rather than oil, for one thing. And they get the water from maple trees, then process it via reverse osmosis. Sounds like hype.

        1. They would have to show me why a tincture is better? I don’t know how it would be. I know that CBD can be extracted in oil and my understanding is (though limited) that in oil it is better absorbed but as water soluble it is much better than that. I don’t know about tincture bioavailability. Did they address that?

  10. I’ve been taking CBD for pain for several years now the stuff is actually better than what the doctor has prescribed. But instead of getting it from a store I get it online because the prices are much cheaper I’m on a set income.

  11. A friend of mine just texted me that their company is doing a *info removed by blog owner* sale for 75% OFF on their CBD this week. Go to **link removed by blog owner** and use coupon code “code removed by blog owner”. You can thank me later.

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting. Sorry but I don’t accept comments that are promotional in nature.

      I looked at the company and see a lot of claims but no tests backing them up. They state that they are the highest absorbed, but there is no indication that they are anything but a typical CBD oil and nano and water soluble is for sure more absorbable than that so I’m confused. Hope that helps.

      1. Thank you very much sharing your real experience here to encourage more people to g for trying cbd oil. It’s indeed a great post; I appreciate your effort for writing such a brilliant article. Cheers and lots of good wishes!!

        1. Thanks, James! Sorry but I don’t allow people to use my platform to advertise so I removed your company’s contact info. I’m sure you understand!

  12. My son was diagnosed with Dup15q a rare chromosome disorder. He is just 4 years old and suffers from extreme anxiety and OCD. I have a lady suggesting Kannaway full spectrum. I’m having a hard time finding honest reviews on this. Everything I look at leads me to their site. Have you found any info on this brand?

    1. Hello Summer. Yes, I used to work with them but I don’t any longer for a variety of reasons. I wouldn’t recommend them–first of which is there are no published lab testing of their products that have a chemist’s signature on them. Happy to help with any other questions.

  13. I want to reply to a comment you left, but can not find the comment here (I got an email you had replied).
    It was about DEA legalities and the wording on bottles of different brands.
    Right NOW, no, there is no problem with selling cbd oil. However, it is def in the works to not have this be OTC. Big Pharma wants a piece of this lucrative pie. So by putting the hemp potency only, you forgo alot of problems.

    1. So you didn’t get a link to use to respond to in the email that you got? Please do tell me since you should have gotten it. The only other possibility is that the thread got too long–in which case I could possibly fix that.

      I see, that is a possibility. I will ask to see if others agree with that. Thank you!

    1. Hi there. I looked at them briefly. It seems that they test internally but occasionally have third party testing–did I read the right? I am not seeing that they are water soluble either so that’s something to consider if you want the most bioavailable.

      1. It doesn’t appear to be his product but he endorses it from what I can tell. I’m unsure about solubility. Do you have thoughts/concerns on his potency points? The world of choosing good products is difficult ? especially when such expensive ones.

        1. I’m looking into this but I am not sure what to make of it. From what I am reading, different people are referring to spagyric extraction in different ways.
