Rosebud 350 CBD Oil

Overall Verdict

Rosebud CBD is a recently arrived product in the market, based in New Jersey with hemp grown in Oregon. The Rosebud CBD product line includes several different potency options, ranging from 350 mg to 1000 mg, and also a topical salve. Lab testing of the Rosebud 350 bottles detected the presence of some broad-spectrum cannabinoids other than CBD, including CBG and CBC, indicating it does use full-spectrum oil. Potency analysis indicates the tested sample had slightly below the claimed 350 Mg, (only 318 milligrams of CBD detected) but within 10% specifications, resulting in a narrow Pass rating.

Manufacturer

Rosebud CBD is marketed by Alexis Rosenbaum, with offices in New York.

Pros

  • Multiple Potency Options
  • 30 Day Refund Policy
  • Public lab test results

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Small 15 mL bottles

Charlotte’s Web Extra Strength

Overall Verdict

Charlotte’s Web is one of the largest and most established CBD sellers in the United States. Media coverage of their efforts to help a young child suffering from severe seizure disorders led to widespread popularity and awareness. Charlotte’s Web is now a publicly-traded company in Canada, boasting a wide range of CBD oils, creams, capsules, and pet products. An enormous marketing budget has made them the most recognizable brand in the CBD industry, and their variety of full-spectrum and isolate products can be found at retail locations in a dozen states. The company is vertically integrated, using their own plant strains and externally-sourced hemp oil in their product lines. Charlotte’s Web has received warning letters from the FDA as a result of impermissible health claims, which have since been resolved. The Charlotte’s Web Extra Strength is their premium full-spectrum cannabidiol oil.

Manufacturer

Charlotte’s Web is owned by Stanley Brother Holdings, a Colorado company publicly traded on the Canadian Stock Exchange.

Ignite CBD

Overall Verdict

Ignite CBD is a recently arrived product in the market, driven largely by social media and influencer marketing. Known chiefly for being backed (and promoted constantly) by internet personality Dan Bilzerian, the Ignite line includes both vape products and oral CBD oils. The CBD oils come in 4 different flavors. The product does not use full-spectrum hemp oil, electing to use only isolate instead. Lab test results indicate no broad-spectrum cannabinoids other than CBD and CBDV, and potency analysis indicates the product had slightly below the claimed 1,000 Mg, but within +/- 10% specifications, resulting in a narrow Pass rating. Ignite Vape pens and THC products were not tested.

Manufacturer

Ignite CBD is marketed by Ignite International, a Wyoming corporation, operating in California.

Pure CBD 100mg

Overall Verdict

Pure CBD is another product that has been promoted via “free trial” scheme (Note: It is important to realize that this product is different from CBD Pure, a highly-rated product that is not marketed by any misleading free trial promotion). Many customers who have ordered Pure CBD for a small “trial” fee report that they have had their credit cards later billed without permission for $87, under what the company calls a negative option membership. Lab test results do confirm the product does contain the full 100 mg of CBD as advertised. While the products ingredients and potency do match up with label claims, the misleading free trial promotion methods, and its use of a name very similar to the CBD Pure line, make it a product to be cautious about. It also uses isolate, rather than full spectrum hemp oil to reach its potency levels.

Manufacturer

Pure CBD is marketed by Natural Way, a company with limited contact information, based in Colorado. No additional details were found, and the Colorado Better Business Bureau has no file on the company

Pros

  • 100 mg CBD concentration confirmed by lab tests
  • Fast shipping

Cons

  • Misleading Name
  • Lack of Contact Information
  • Misleading Free Trial
