How Do You Know You Have High-Quality CBD Oil?

As CBD oil gets more popular, you may wonder how to choose from the nearly endless number of CBD oils on the market. We’re here to help you out! It’s vital to use the best-quality CBD oil from a reliable source for optimal results. Below are seven signs that you’ve chosen a premium CBD oil

Oil Is Extracted With Supercritical CO2

 

Premium oils use the safest solvents to extract CBD, such as CO2. This process ensures a safe, pure product that isn’t tainted by additives or residues. Lesser solvents such as propane or butane can damage the product with hazardous contaminants. 

Oil Is Made With Naturally Grown Hemp

 

Hemp is called a hyperaccumulator plant. In English, this means hemp can absorb darned near everything from the soil in which it grows. What hemp absorbs can be beneficial, including several vitamins and minerals. Or, it can be harmful, such as petroleum and lead. 

 

The safest oils are sourced from regions where regulators require farmers to have certifications and have their growing fields tested for harmful contaminants. The oil also needs to be tested by an accredited lab in the ISO-IEC 17025:2017 standard. This accreditation means the lab ensures the oil doesn’t have heavy metals, pesticides, fungus, bacteria, and other nasty stuff that can damage human health. 

It’s Not Too Inexpensive

 

CBD oil is one product where you get precisely what you pay for. Premium CBD oil costs a lot to make. If the price is low, it’s probably made with mediocre extraction methods and contaminants. It also may not contain significant amounts of CBD. 

 

Of course, we’re not telling you to buy the most expensive CBD oil on the planet. Look for fair prices and excellent customer reviews. 

The Label States Percentage of CBD

 

Excellent CBD oil made by a legitimate company tells you the CBD percentage is in the product. You should hunt for the concentration or total milligrams per bottle. A higher number means a potent CBD oil. For maximum efficacy, top CBD oils should have 250-1,000 mg for each 10 ml bottle. Anything less than that and you may as well flush your money down the toilet. 

Has No More than 0.2% THC

 

CBD oil may have minute quantities of THC – almost always 0.2% or less – but it won’t get you high. But insufficient processing can increase THC levels that CAN make you high. This is evidence of a bad product. Plus, it could make the oil illegal in your state. Review product labels with care for precise THC levels before you pull out your debit card. 

No Extreme Medical Claims

 

CBD has impressive beneficial health properties. But it doesn’t have FDA approval as a medicine. This means it’s treated like a vitamin or supplement. No company can boast that it treats or cures a medical problem. For example, if you see a CBD oil that claims it can fight cancer, you need to run in the other direction. 

Produced From Whole Plant Extracts

 

The best CBD oils are extracted from whole cannabis plants. They’re called full-spectrum CBD oils. They are usually considered the best quality and are superior to products derived from isolates. 

 

While CBD isolates sound great, they’re often products from low-quality materials. It also lacks vital flavonoids, terpenes, and cannabinoids that affect the product’s efficacy for many health problems. You want full-spectrum oil for the best results. 

 

We hope we’ve made you understand the most vital things to look for in high-quality CBD oil. Now you know what separates the best products from the also-rans.

No disrespect to the other gift categories that we have already done and have planned for this month, but I was most excited to write the luxury gift guide!

If you’re involved with the cannabis industry at all, you know that there’s a side of it that tries to make things a little more luxurious. Nice dispensaries with an amazing interior and top of the line technology, gourmet and decadent edibles, etc. I love seeing the innovative things the cannabis industry comes up with, and this guide is for those of you that want to give a gift with a little more oomph. 

Hervé Macarons

Hervé is a French company, so you already know their macarons are incredible and authentic. Each macaron has 10 milligrams of THC, and has three total macarons per box. They are currently only available in Nevada, so only residents of that state have access to Hervé. They do have products available in Reno or Las Vegas, so if you’re in California you might be willing to make the drive for some macarons, too!

The box they come in is amazing. It’s just a simple white box, but it’s very sturdy and it just feels luxurious. Hervé’s brand screams luxury, so if you’re looking for a gift for the cannabis enthusiast with a more refined taste – look no further! 

Hemp Beard Kit by Franny’s Farmacy 

I was so excited to receive this hemp beard kit by Franny’s Farmacy in the mail! My husband has a beard, so we tried it right away. It comes with a really nice wooden comb and a beard oil. The comb is durable and folds up, so it’s portable! 

The smell is really nice, it isn’t overpowering like a lot of beard oils are. It has a woody and herby scent, but it’s also slightly sweet. It has moisturizing ingredients like jojoba oil, hemp seed oil, argan, and vitamin e oil. The moisture lasted in my husband’s beard for at least 24 hours, which is really great. This kit retails for $30, so it’s a really affordable gift for all of the beards in your life! 

 

Higher Standards x Edie Parker Mini Roach Clip

This roach clip is the epitome of a luxury cannabis gift. It’s handcrafted in Peru, and made with 100% black rhodonite. 

The roach clip is the product of a collaboration by Edie Parker and Higher Standards. It’s part of the Sustainable Artisan Development Project, which impacts over 300 women annually and empowers new craft economies in Peru. 

This is the perfect gift for joint and blunt smokers alike; it’s the perfect way to smoke your roach down to the end without burning your fingers. Plus, it’s gorgeous! The Higher Standards x Edie Parker roach clip retails for $85. 

Empress Teas

Empress Teas was founded by Bethany Stiles, a female entrepreneur in the cannabis space. The teas are infused with water-soluble CBD and contain a botanical blend of fair-trade flowers. 

“We aim to inspire, motivate and encourage our consumers through our community of wellness practitioners who help us create these resources like the Morning Ritual Guide attached. Even our marketing assets are interactive, like our notecard handouts that have prompts on one side with a writable surface for people to log their intentions for the day, what they are grateful for, and how they can show themselves love today,” says Stiles. Empress Teas is the perfect luxury gift for the one in your life who deserves to relax. Especially with the cooler months already here, a warm cup of tea is the perfect way to warm up! 

1906 Drops 

1906 Drops are a whole new kind of edible, and the brand claims to be the fastest acting edible on the market. There is a Drop for any gift recipient in your life, no matter who they are. 

The brand offers six different experiences, allowing customers to choose between Genius for powering through the workday and improving mental power containing 2.5 milligrams of both CBD and THC, Love to increase sensuality with 2.5 milligrams of CBD and THC, Go to promote energy and alertness with 5 milligrams of THC and CBD, Bliss to encourage a happy sense of wellbeing with 5 milligrams of CBD and THC, Chill to promote tranquility and peace containing 5 milligrams of THC and 25 milligrams of CBD, and Midnight to help a better night’s rest with 5 milligrams of THC and CBD.

R.E. Botanicals, Inc. and the Hemp Industries Association have filed a federal lawsuit against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), challenging a rule the agency implemented last month that could have far-reaching consequences for the U.S. hemp industry.

The petition filed Friday afternoon in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit asks the court to review an interim final rule, “Implementation of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018,” which was promulgated by the DEA on August 21. The lawsuit claims the rule is unlawful because it exceeds the DEA’s legal authority and violates the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the farm bill. The petitioners also argue that acting DEA administrator Timothy Shea, who is individually named as a respondent along with the agency, issued the interim final rule without observing procedures required by law.

RE Botanicals, Inc. is a hemp manufacturer and retailer based in South Carolina. “We are a small, woman-operated company,” said Janel Ralph, CEO of RE Botanicals. “The DEA’s new rule could put us out of business overnight.”

The DEA’s interim final rule clarifies that all hemp derivatives or extracts exceeding 0.3% THC shall remain Schedule I controlled substances. This could be interpreted to include intermediate hemp derivatives that temporarily exceed 0.3% during processing, but contain less than 0.3% in final products. As such, it improperly establishes the DEA’s authority over legal hemp activities, which is contrary to the plain language and intent of the 2018 farm bill, according to the petitioners.

“When Congress passed the 2018 farm bill, it explicitly carved hemp and its derivatives out of the Controlled Substances Act so that hemp can be regulated as an agricultural commodity,” said HIA President Rick Trojan. “The DEA’s interim final rule could create substantial barriers to the legal manufacturing of hemp-derived products, a critical component of the hemp supply chain, and devastate the entire hemp industry. Although the DEA states that is not its intention, the rule must be amended to ensure hemp remains an agricultural crop, as Congress intended.”

HIA successfully challenged DEA rulemaking in 2003, when the agency amended federal regulations to include naturally occurring THC within the definition of “synthetic THC,” thereby treating it as a Schedule I substance despite it falling outside the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act.

The petitioners are represented by leading hemp industry attorneys at Vicente Sederberg LLP, Kight Law Office PC, and Hoban Law Group, along with appellate attorneys from Yetter Coleman LLP, which has received national attention for its work against the DEA in the realm of cannabis research.

“The DEA implemented this rule without following proper rule-making procedures, such as providing the public with notice and the opportunity to comment,” said Shawn Hauser, a partner at Vicente Sederberg LLP and chair of the firm’s hemp and cannabinoids practice. “The petitioners believe legal action is necessary to protect the lawful U.S. hemp industry that Congress intended to establish when it enacted the 2018 farm bill.

Cannabis analytics firm, Headset said it has raised $3.2 million in a bridge round from existing investors, led by Canopy Rivers with participation from Poseidon Asset Management and others. The company said that the additional funding will be used to accelerate entry into new markets and expand the use of its market intelligence platform across the growing legal cannabis industry. The cash infusion will be used to help Headset expand into new states and provinces where cannabis is legal, including in markets expected to open up post-election.

“Headset has been a true innovator in this space, working diligently to provide customers with a platform that is essential to staying competitive,” said Narbé Alexandrian, President and CEO at Canopy Rivers. “We’re happy to provide additional capital as they bring this service to new markets, raising the intelligence of the entire industry through data-driven insights.”

Since its launch in 2015, Headset has become the leader in data analytics services used by companies within the cannabis industry such as brands, dispensaries, and retailers, as well as organizations in the financial services and consumer packaged goods, to capitalize on market trends and understand consumer purchase behavior. The company uses point-of-sale data as a resource versus survey techniques used by other analytical firms. The real-time data is valued by industry insiders. For example, the company just released a new market report for the month of August that takes a look at the current state of Canada’s Cannabis 2.0 products like edibles and indigestibles.

Headset’s own data shows average sales of cannabis products in adult-use markets are up 25% this year, despite retail lags in other sectors due to the pandemic.

“We’re grateful to our investors for their continued confidence in our vision,” said Cy Scott, Founder and CEO of Headset. “Our real-time market intelligence data helps cannabis operators, CPG companies, financial services and more navigate the competitive landscape, find opportunity and understand the cannabis consumer through our aggregated point-of-sale derived data which includes sales, inventory, pricing, demographics and basket analytics.”

2019 FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year, two-time Women’s World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist, Megan Rapinoe will be sponsored by the women-owned sports recovery brand called Mendi

Designed with athletes in mind, Mendi’s first line of products is made with legal hemp CBD. Professional athletes can’t run the risk of registering positive results for trace amounts of THC  from a drug test. 

The statement said that Rapinoe would spearhead Mendi’s ‘Athlete Ambassador Program’ lending her voice and vision to amplify the brand’s presence. Rapinoe is expanding on her previous role with the group as a strategic partner and board advisors. The soccer star will be working with Mendi to find innovative ways to expand the athlete program so that more progressive standout players in other sports can be at the frontline advocating for player health and safety.  Megan’s valuable and growing role is a continuation of her entrepreneurial spirit and momentum she’s established with her twin sister, Rachael Rapinoe. 

“As a tool, CBD has been integral in Megan’s training and recovery program for the past few years,” said Rachael Rapinoe, CEO of Mendi. “She’s seen the massive potential for more people to adopt CBD into their recovery regimens and saw a need to do something about it by partnering with us to make sure we do it right.” 

Rapinoe catapulted to stardom as the women’s soccer team won the World Cup this year. The deal with Mendi is the first partnership she has announced with any brand since the World Cup. As an advocate for equal pay and inclusion, Megan wants this partnership to raise awareness of implementing diversity, inclusion, equal pay, equality, and justice into our communities and workplaces.

“By partnering with Mendi, we have the opportunity to work with Megan to make a difference and walk the walk,” said Rachael. “We’re not waiting for equal pay. It’s here today. We’re taking a proactive role to do something about it by building a business that cares for the athlete’s best interest and assembles our own team of industry vets that share these values and the passion to change the game for good. We’re building a brighter future for sports both on and off the field so we can pass the torch to the next generation of athletes.” 

Mendi currently offers three products, gel caps, gummies and a salve stick.
