A newcomer to our CBD oils ranking, RE: Botanicals is no stranger to hemp. Founded by John Roulac, a long-time hemp advocate and founder of the organic superfoods brand Nutiva, RE: Botanicals is one of the only CBD brands to earn the USDA organic seal. They deserve a shout-out for prioritizing regenerative agriculture, while keeping prices reasonable.
It’s subtle and unique, and reminds us of a dreamsicle with its delicate orange blossom taste. Populum masterfully blends flavor with hemp extract for an uplifting part of the day. Transparent independent 3rd party lab results easily accessible by product. Uses 100% hemp that is grown in Colorado. First in the CBD industry to offer a truly risk-free 30 day trial. Offers one of the best customer service we’ve found via phone, email, and chat. Thoughtful carrier oil blend of hemp seed, orange, grapeseed, and coconut. Two step distillation process that results in full-spectrum CBD oil with high levels of phytocannabinoids and terpenes.
Price: CBD oil for under $15? A two pack for $25? Nope – what you're actually buying is hemp oil. Real, trusted CBD oil brands are much more expensive. Why? Because they make their products in small batches, use eco-friendly extraction methods, source American hemp, and conduct lab tests. Even though you searched "cbd oil" on Amazon – this stuff above has ZERO CBD in it!
Great article! Excellent point by Matt, precisely why I found this article. I would just add that the CBD percentage in the extract can be significantly lower than even the 20%, but its probably fair to use that to give a rough idea how much CBD might be in an Amazon product, so divide the claimed percentage by 5!. Claims of up to 60% on Amazon are totally ludicrous, any concentration above 20% CBD become darker very viscous and the CBD starts to crystalize in the bottle! You would need to heat the bottle (which can damage the properties of the carrier oil) to re-liquidize! Also beware of Amazon reviews which are notorious for being fake. As author suggests, contact seller for full data sheets or seek a reputable supplier elsewhere that gives full transparency of information up front.
Customer Service: It’s difficult to find contact information on Calm by Wellness’s website, and their email address is listed incorrectly in two places (we tried sending them an email but it was not delivered). We were, however, able to get a response through Facebook, and the company does offer free shipping and a generous 30-day return policy on all orders.
