Company: Green Roads

Products:

 

What Makes This Brand Unique: Started in 2013 by a compounding pharmacist named Laura Fuentes and one of her family friends turned patients, Arby Barosso, Green Roads has been an industry leader since the beginning.

Based out of Florida where restrictions were and are still strict, Green Roads cut through all the red tape. In fact, they’ve acted (and been awarded) as advocates for those suffering from ailments that are treatable by CBD and worked hard to get them into the hands of those patients.

Unlike a traditional retail pharmacy, compounding pharmacies must adhere to strict sanitation practices, regularly working under laminar flow hoods to eliminating microscopic contamination of whatever concoction their compounding. Medicines can include ointments and creams, powders meant for capsules and tablets, and medicines delivered via IV bags. Pureness and quality are not marketing terms here – they’re requirements.

It’s with this attitude Laura and Arby have paved the road green. And the evidence is in the products. Green Roads sent us four products to sample and we can’t wait to tell you all about them.

CBD Nightly Dose, Sweet Sleep (25mg/packet, 12/pack) Review

First of all, we love the Green Roads packaging. All these products came to us in a verdant green box with the Green Roads logo on top. We opened it to find four deep blue boxes professionally designed with crescent moons and fluffy clouds.

It was about that time that we realized we were sampling their Sleep Line collection. With long hours of work ahead of us plus stress about the future of this currently wild world, all we could think was, “This is awesome.”

The first box we opened contained 12 individually packaged units of 25mg broad-spectrum CBD and CBN oil. Imagine those individually packed sports drink powder mixes that come in a small, long tube or wider pixie stick.

In other words, the packaging is perfect for travel and discretion. Simply rip off the top and let the tasty blueberry oil pour under your tongue.

For experienced users like us, pure CBD may not be enough to put you to sleep. No worries. With 2.5mg of natural melatonin, you’ll fall asleep easily and sleep deeply through the night. We experienced absolutely no grogginess in the morning.

We absolutely love the delivery system and the relaxing effect of these Sweet Sleep CBD oil packets. In fact, it absolutely beats the somewhat shadiness of measuring out a tincture with a dropper. It’s as if the pharmacist took care of all the mad scientist stuff to ensure we get what we need off the shelf with discretion.

Sleepy Zs CBD Gummies (25mg/gummy, 30ct) Review

If we can get anything in gummy form, we do. That goes for multivitamins, movie theater candy, and of course, CBD. What can we say, we’re a bunch of big kids!

Just be sure not to get carried away munching on the impressively delicious blackberry CBD gummies with 5mg of melatonin. One of our staff assumed, without reading the packaging (which is perfectly well-labeled), that the dosage was 2 gummies per night. She reported sleeping extremely well but said she didn’t want to get up in the morning. “It wasn’t grogginess,” she clarified. “I was just extremely relaxed and comfortable.”

Green Roads sent these circular purple gummies in a wide-mouth plastic jar (30 count) as well as in a 2-serving resealable sample pack (2 count). Again, not having to worry about dosing correctly is a big boon, and both containers look indistinguishable from other sleep aids high-end sleep aids. In other words, the packaging looks enticing and fresh without giving off that fun but dated hippie-dippie vibes.

In case you didn’t get the message from our description, we absolutely love and would recommend this product.

CBD Sleep Capsules (25mg/capsule, 30ct) Review

So you don’t like sweets and you just want to sleep. Enter CBD sleep capsules. Packed into a small, wide-mouth plastic jar, each white capsule is about the size and shape of a Mike ‘n’ Ike. 

These CBD capsules contain 25mg of CBD isolate instead of full or broad spectrum CBD. While broad spectrum CBD contains 0.0% THC, isolate goes even further by eliminating terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoid compounds.

These are perfect for restless souls who don’t react well to the “entourage effect.” Each capsule also contains 5mg of melatonin. These are excellent for first-timers and those wary of trying CBD.

Ojai-1280x960.jpeg

7min00

Company: Ojai Energetics

Products:

What Makes This Brand Unique: Ojai Energetics does it different. Sure, you could say that about most CBD brands as they try to carve out a name for themselves in an exploding market. But Ojai can say it for sure.

Ojai puts people over profits. A health and wellness brand dedicated to scientifically-driven research and development with their nutraceuticals, Ojai is absolutely not your run-of-the-mill CBD brand. Their full spectrum hemp elixir is not just another private label CBD tincture – it can’t really be defined as a tincture at all.

But we’ll get back to that.

Located in Ojai, California, this company takes special care to build relationships with farmers and manufacturers that share their values: sustainability, giving back to the community, easy and affordable access for all, and corporate responsibility. They even run their servers with wind power!

Yes, Ojai Energetics walks the walks. Now let’s take a look at the fruits of their labor.

Full Spectrum Hemp Elixir (250mg/30ml) Review

Let’s start with a review of what we foolishly assumed would be ‘just another tincture.’

Placed in a perfectly sized cardboard tube with care, this 30ml dark amber bottle was more or less unremarkable. Uniform packaging across the products suggests professionalism. Beige, green, and berry purple labels recall images of California vineyards.

And like a fine wine, this elixir has a strong and defined flavor. The aroma is earthy overall, but notes of sweet honey, bitter moringa, nuts and rich molasses send your taste buds on a wild ride.

Most interestingly, Ojai Energetics actually recommends you base your dosing on the flavor. Simply take a ¼ ml (a quarter dropperful) under your tongue repeatedly until the flavor moves from bitter to sweet.

There is an alternate first-time dosing recommendation, however. Because the flavor was so strong, we opted to take 3 dropperfuls. With 20x more bioavailability than more processed tinctures, we felt 3 dropperfuls within minutes.

While this elixir is an acquired taste, its results are exactly what CBD claims to be: calming, stress-reducing, relaxing.

Fortunately, you can also mix it into hot or cold beverages (tea is a match made in heaven) because it’s not your average tincture.

CBD Coconut Oil (5oz) Review

Move over, olive oil! Our new favorite cooking oil has earned a permanent spot in our pantry. There are 60mg in each 5oz jar of coconut oil; the perfect supplement to your everyday dosing.

But what really had us over the moon was how incredibly well coconut oil and hemp flower extract and hemp seed oil. This creamy, tropical taste mixed dreamily into smoothies and fruit cocktails and complemented fish, tofu, and Indian chicken dishes.

It’s clear that Ojai cares about the quality of all its ingredients as this coconut oil is raw, virgin, and cold expelled. In other words, it’s loaded with nutrients and healthy fats that your body needs.

Full Spectrum Sport Gel Review

Finally, we arrive at Ojai Energetics’ sport gel. Think of it like drug store hot and cold gel but without any crazy chemicals.

All-natural ingredients provide the tingling sensation, namely: black pepper extract, peppermint and wintergreen oils, and a touch of rosemary, cypress, and clove to open the airways. The sensory waterfall amplifies the effects of the sport gel by relaxing the whole body-mind continuum instead of targeting a small physical area.

The gel goes on silky and wet but dries quickly, especially when therapeutically massaged into the affected area. Unlike some green CBD lotions and gels, Ojai’s left no green smears. All the essential oils and virgin coconut oil blended into this medicinal mix left our skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

As with the products above, this full spectrum sport gel is free of corn, soy, gluten, and GMOs. All the ingredients are ethically grown and harvested. This matters to us as shady CBD companies come and go.

But we have a feeling this won’t be the last we hear from high quality, compassionate brand like Ojai Energetics.

Company: Harvey’s All Naturals

Products:

 

What Makes This Brand Unique: Harvey’s All Naturals was founded in 2015 by, well, Harvey! Born and educated in Massachusetts, Harvey relocated to a patch of land in Colorado after receiving his BS in Mechanical Engineering from UMass Amherst. That’s where he began farming hemp.

Harvey doesn’t do it like the other up-and-coming farmers of his time. He’s devoted to 100% natural and organic farming practices. That means swapping out pesticides for over 20,000 species of anti-pest insects and beneficial microorganisms for insect and disease control.

It also means not “farming out” his services to large-scale commercial farms that simply don’t have the capacity to grow hemp to Harvey’s standards. Instead, Harvey partners with other local small farms in Colorado so he can ensure the highest quality chemical-free CBD hemp.

We got to sample Harvey’s CBD tincture and healing salve. Let’s see how they performed.

Harvey’s CBD Elixir (500mg, 15ml) Review

What makes this brand so cool is its simplicity. It’s the story of a humble engineer-turned-farmer in the serene mountains of Colorado. This very chill vibe is reflected in the elegant minimalistic design shared across Harvey’s products.

The CBD elixir came to me in a small amber bottle, perfect for tossing in my backpack and hitting the road. A glossy white label displays Harvey’s mountain logo, giving this little medicine bottle an old-timey feel.

Why such a tiny bottle for the price of a typical 30ml bottle? It’s no rip-off. This CBD tincture is just highly concentrated. Instead of taking a dropperful, you only need 4 – 8 drops per dose.

Harvey’s accomplishes this by cold processing their hemp. The company grows for terpenes and collects all the secondary cannabinoids that come with them. After cold processing, a technique that loses fewer cannabinoids than other methods of extraction, the full spectrum concentrate is infused with grapeseed oil to improve bioavailability.

The lack of harsh chemicals in the farming and manufacturing of Harvey’s means you get all the good without the bad. However, it also means you can taste all the good, and that’s a pretty strong flavor. Fortunately, the hempy earthy taste is mitigated by the fact that you’ll only be taking 4 – 8 drops. After 30 – 90 seconds, the bitterness is gone.

As for the effects, we found Harvey’s to be among the most effective CBD tinctures for stress, anxiety, and insomnia. Perhaps thanks to the extreme concentration of this tincture, the stress reduction was noticeable almost instantly, like a sudden change of perspective.

We recommend Harvey’s for people who travel and need relief fast, but not for people who can’t stand the taste of hemp.

Harvey’s CBD Healing Salve (500mg, 30ml) Review

Harvey’s full spectrum healing salve arrived in an adorable yet modern one ounce amber jar. With a black plastic lid, Harvey’s white labels on the top and sides are another example of Harvey’s simple yet striking package design.

With a twist of the wrist, we opened the jar to find a yellow waxy looking substance. As soon as we touched the salve, it seemed to magically melt into a thin oil, emitting floral and herbal scents.

Fortunately, Harvey’s never uses dyes or artificial fragrances as these can contain harmful chemicals. Instead, the salve is the natural color of its base ingredients: olive oil, beeswax, coconut oil, and of course full spectrum hemp flower oil with 500mg of CBD. And it gets its scent and mild tingling sensation from all-natural lavender and peppermint essential oils.

Those aren’t just the highlights of the ingredients list; that’s the whole thing! This moisturizing salve uses CBD and lavender to calm the body and mind. Coconut oil and olive oil help keep skin hydrated and nourished and beeswax locks the ingredients in so they can help you heal.

We use this wonderful salve for inflammation, arthritis, joint pain, rheumatism, muscle tension, sports injuries, and even as a hand lotion for dry, chapped skin.

Subtle-Tea-VCC-Brands-CBD-products-CBDToday.jpg

3min00

VCC Brands, leading manufacturer and distributor of a range of cannabis-infused products out of California, launched Subtle Tea in 2010, and with it a line of full-spectrum beverages intended to refresh the senses while balancing the body via the endocannabinoid system. Their CBD-only line is cold brewed with 25mg of broad spectrum CBD per bottle, all natural ingredients, and just a hint of sweetness from plant-based, keto-friendly stevia. Subtle Tea is crafted to appeal to health-conscious consumers with a predilection for creative thirst-quenching.

I recently sampled Subtle Tea’s Jasmine Green Tea with Lychee (CBD only), though it was a hard choice between that and the White Peach Tea with Cardamom and Ginger White Tea with Fuji Apple. I immediately loved the look of the bottle, with its appropriately subtle label graphics and simple design, choosing to drink it over ice on an especially steamy mid-Atlantic summer day.

As for the beverage itself, I’ll start by saying that I am fairly particular when it comes to bottled teas and tend to avoid them, as it is difficult to find one that is not heavily sweetened, and those that are can be too bitter for my taste. Green tea in particular requires precise steeping in order to avoid a level of bitterness that must then be offset by excessive sweeteners, not to mention what happens to all of those fragile antioxidants. Jasmine green tea can be especially hard to do well, as the jasmine overtones are delicate and easily overwhelmed by over-steeping.

The light color of the tea was immediately reassuring, suggesting that the green tea had not been left to brew too long. An initial sip proved this to be the case. The green tea was mild and smooth and the jasmine and lychee played well together for a flavor that was bright and floral without being overly fruity. The hint of sweetness was pleasant and not at all overpowering, and the caffeine/CBD combination put me in a calm but alert state that kept me on task throughout my day without sabotaging a good night’s sleep. If the other flavors in Subtle Tea’s THC and THC/CBD blends yield similar results, craft beverage drinkers looking for a healthy pick-me-up will be well-pleased.

Jupiter.jpg

Company: Jupiter

Product:

What Makes This Brand Unique: Jupiter sets themselves apart from other CBD brands with their commitment to quality and intentionality. In other words, every decision the Jupiter team makes is to better the quality of their hemp and the environment.

Fortunately, these two values go hand-in-hand. Grown on a single family farm in the USA, Jupiter’s hemp is manufactured in small batches using simple organic ingredients. They never use any fillers, artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives.

In fact, this USDA certified organic product is packaged in BPA-free glass bottles complete with 100% recyclable packaging.

And as far as quality goes, they’ve got that down, too. Not content to process the whole plant like other CBD brands, Jupiter only uses the flowers which contain the highest CBD and terpene content of the plant. Each batch is lab-tested three times and the results are easily accessible.

So, how did we enjoy Jupiter’s CBD oil? Read on for the details.

Jupiter’s Mint Organic CBD Drops (450mg/30ml) Review

Currently, Jupiter only sells this mint CBD oil, so you can be sure they’re putting all their love and effort into each delightful bottle.

Jupiter’s colors are as galactic as its name: calming dark blue and a playful teal representing the refreshing mint taste. Sure enough, this color scheme is reflected across all of Jupiter’s branding, even the inside of the box!

The cool blue label contrasted against the teal sustainable packaging that prominently displayed the amber bottle. What can we say? We believe in dazzling unboxing experiences!

But the effects of this product are far more important. Whether you’re looking for a daytime refresher or a nighttime de-stresser, we believe Jupiter is perfect for everyone and anyone.

We highly recommend this particular strength for first time users. The dosage is just enough to help us relax without putting us to sleep. Furthermore, there is absolutely no trace of hemp flavor in this tincture. The mint flavor is light and natural – not too strong by any means.

The Takeaway

Jupiter puts all their cash and energy into ensuring their one and only product is everything it can and should be: organic, tasty and effective.

Perhaps that’s why there’s no need to niche down further. Jupiter’s CBD drops cover all your bases: from stress and anxiety to a general feeling of well being. If you’re still unsure, you can buy a sample. Also, know that Jupiter offers a 30-day no questions asked money back guarantee with free returns.

Mendi_layers2_1024x1024.png

4min00

Rachel Rapinoe, Kendra Freeman, and Brett Schwager’s CBD brand Mendi takes self-care for athletes to the next level with its line of full-spectrum and THC-free CBD products. Mendi recruits from a deep bench of professional athletes to share their personal stories of enhanced recovery and improved performance, using Mendi’s offerings as a key part of their wellness regimens.

Website profiles detailing the product preferences of sports luminaries like Megan Rapinoe, Sue Bird, and Merritt Mathias entice everyone from weekend warriors to professional athletes to reap the benefits of Mendi’s formulations. Products are available in either the “Core” or “Base” line categories, with Core formulations containing less than .3% THC and the Base line no THC at all for those subject to stringent drug testing.

After sampling Mendi’s full spectrum gummies and Lemon Balm & Rose Bath Salt, I can confidently say that Mendi is getting a lot of things right on both counts, at least according to my melty, blissed-out muscles. A tough week of home renovations put these products to the test, and they passed with flying colors.

With most other gummies, I typically need at least two (one, and then a follow-up dose an hour or so later) to unwind and unclench from the day’s exertions, but with Mendi’s gummies, one did the trick. I was experiencing naggingly achy shoulders and lower back pain from painting, and the next day I woke up pain-free. Flavored with concentrated fruit juices, I didn’t feel like a kid sneaking handfuls of Lucky Charms before bed, and the sugar content didn’t send me into the stratosphere.

I saved the bath salts for when the last coat of paint had dried, the final trim nailed into place, and the last drifts of drywall dust swept away. Lemon balm and rose geranium (not rose, as the front of the pouch, suggests- the two are different plants) share a therapeutic mission of calming the nervous system and providing pain relief. The scent of this bath salt is pure heaven, and in combination with the Epsom salt I added (as recommended) and the formulation’s own salt blend would have been enough to turn my knots to mush. But the addition of full-spectrum CBD seemed to prolong the effects of the soak well into the following day. While I’m far from a professional athlete, I am an active person who demands a lot from her body, and I found Mendi’s gummies and bath salts to be a perfect way to give back and restore myself for the next hurdle on the home front.

California-based TruFlora Herbal Spliffs sources hand-harvested ingredients from small farms dedicated to “sustainable, mindful horticulture” in order to realize TruFlora’s founding vision of  sparking “a plant-human cosmic connection.” This pitch is reinforced by their gold-embossed black packaging adorned by colorful plant renderings, which bear filtered roll-ups in corked plastic tubes. TruFlora cannabis is also “sun grown and dry framed”, which means that the plants are raised outside of grow houses using no excess water, in addition to being harvested according to the phases of the moon.

 Co-founders Erica Kay and Carlos De La Torre, who also own Los Angeles dispensary Cornerstone Wellness and bring over 20 years of experience to their latest venture, work to bring people and plants together through botanically-inspired cannabis products. Kay and De La Torre expand their efforts into the realms of empowered education, community outreach, and policy change in order to further their mission to build a “conscious cannabis business”.

I sampled TruFlora’s “Feel Good” and “Wings” pre-rolls, and found if not what I would call a “cosmic connection”, then at least some distinctly pleasurable effects. The “Feel Good” blend contains 60mg of THC and 113.68mg of CBD in addition to Wanderlust Cannabis (85%) and “Vizion Herbal Blend” (15%), which includes organic Gingko Biloba, Gotu Kola, Damiana, Mate, Calamus, Lobelia, and Skullcap. These are some of my favorite herbs to work with and Lobelia is notable for being beneficial for the lungs, though it never would have occurred to me to smoke Mate. The packaging promises a “euphoric and vibrant” experience, which I didn’t quite achieve, but I did experience a clear-headed calm that was most welcome and seemed to contribute to more restful sleep that evening. 

“Wings”, billed as a “creative and engaging” smoking experience, contains 176.4mg of THC, 1mg of CBD from Wanderlust cannabis, and a “KinNikNik Herbal Blend”(15%), which is made up of Uva Ursi, Passionflower, Motherwort, Damiana, Red Raspberry Leaf, and Lobelia. I enjoyed the taste of this one  and the presence of Motherwort, which is a supreme herb for anxiety. Passionflower has a deep tranquilizing effect on me, which did not lend itself to feeling “creative and engaging”, though the blend did seem to boost me over the kind of negative self-talk that can sometimes hinder my creativity.

 Overall, I rate TruFlora’s herbal spliffs high for taste, quality, and experience, but no herb is one-size-fits all and will affect every individual differently. Not everyone who smokes TruFlora’s pre-rolls will find themselves in a “cosmic connection” with the plant world, but they will have a thoroughly enjoyable smoke balanced by some of nature’s most effective botanical allies.

Company: Harbor Hemp Company

Product:

What Makes This Brand Unique: If you haven’t yet heard of Harbor Hemp Company, it’s high time you got in on this family-run health and wellness CBD brand.

Based in Connecticut, Harbor Hemp is among the most health and eco-conscious CBD purveyors in the country. Using only industrial hemp grown in the US, Harbor Hemp CBD is lab tested twice and manufactured at a Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) certified facility in Connecticut.

If you’ve read our previous reviews of Harbor Hemp, you’re familiar with the sheer variety of products this company offers. From sports creams to lab-tested tinctures, it’s no surprise they’re among the brands pioneering CBD-infused beverages.

Calm Seas CBD-Infused Seltzer Review

We had the opportunity to sample Harbor Hemp Company’s Calm Seas CBD-infused seltzer, and we were not disappointed.

This beverage came to us discreetly packaged in a perfectly-sized brown box. Sure enough, the cans themselves were professionally styled to match the running theme across all Harbor Hemp products: a red, white, and blue label depicting a stylized scenic coastline and the watchful eye of a lighthouse.

It’s no wonder that they named this seltzer Calm Seas. In line with their overall New England-style branding, this beverage is designed inside and out to elicit a total sense of mind-body harmony.

True to their mission to offer the highest quality CBD in healthful consumable forms, Harbor Hemp includes only 4 ingredients in their seltzer: water, 26mg CBD extract, natural black cherry flavor, and citric acid.

We considered this product to be a positive alternative to alcohol. After all, the 16-ounce cans and red, white, and blue color scheme do remind one of a PBR tallboy.

However, it’s so much better than that. Instead of cracking open a beer at the end of a long day, we opted for Calm Seas. The desired end result is achieved: a totally relaxing summer evening enjoying a beverage on the front porch.

The side effects of alcohol are skillfully avoided. With 0% THC, you’ll experience no intoxication or hangover. Instead, you’ll get the hydration you slacked on throughout the day.

And no offense to the diehard fans, but we are happy to announce that Calms Seas tastes worlds better than a beer.

The black cherry flavor is light with a slightly citric tang. Citric acid is a natural preservative and may aid your body in the absorption of water. There is absolutely no hemp scent or flavor to this beverage.

Overall, this beverage is an amazing alternative to an alcoholic nightcap. It’s also great to sip on throughout the day. Whenever you need to de-stress, Calm Seas will bathe you in a feeling of wellness.

Company: Bluebird Botanicals

Product:

What Makes This Brand Unique: Looking for reliable high-quality CBD while promoting a healthier future for the planet, too? Bluebird Botanicals partners with their clients to pass proceeds onto charities, safer agricultural practices, and members of its own financial assistance program.

This brand’s passion for healing starts with getting helpful hemp products into the hands of those who need them. From there, lives and relationships improve synergistically. Their ultimate mission is to help build a future “where our relationships with ourselves, each other, and all of Mother Earth are held in reverence.”

That’s why Bluebird only uses hemp grown by US farms practicing regenerative agriculture and following strict environmental guidelines. In fact, Bluebird Botanicals is a certified B-Corp. They’re also Leaping Bunny Cruelty-free certified, Good Manufacturing Process (GMP) certified, Low-Carbon Footprint certified, Glyphosate Residue Free certified and US Hemp Authority certified. That’s a pretty impressive resume!

If Bluebird Botanicals’ values align with yours, you’ll be especially pleased to read about their latest CBD tincture: Immunity.

Immunity Vitamin D3 + Hemp Extract Tincture Review

While Bluebird Botanicals already has a beefy line of hemp oil extracts, their recent release of Immunity, a CBD hemp oil extract with vitamin D3, seems especially timely.

How can you tell if your immune system needs a boost? Penn Medicine lists 6 signs your immune system could use some support:

  1. Your stress level is high
  2. You often have a cold
  3. You frequently have an upset stomach
  4. Your wounds and bruises are slow to heal
  5. You tend to get infections
  6. You feel tired all the time

If some or all of these symptoms apply to you, consider taking Immunity as a dietary supplement.

Unlike most CBD tinctures, one dose of Immunity is 0.5ml, or half a dropperful. Bluebird Botanicals recommends taking no more than 1ml per day.

One dose of Immunity contains 2,500IU of vitamin D3 and 4.2mg CBD extract. Suspended in MCT oil (a derivative of coconut oil) and hemp extract, this tincture is dark amber in color with a robust hempy fragrance. That earthy flavor is strong but not bitter.

Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin used by your body to support your immune system, fight the flu, and ensure healthy bones and teeth.

Unfortunately, approximately 42% of the US population is vitamin D deficient to some degree. The effects of vitamin D deficiency are lethargy, fatigue, depression and more frequent illness.

The added CBD helps boost your immune system by relieving tension and stress. In Penn Medicine’s list above, you’ll notice that reducing stress is the first factor that could strengthen your immune system.

That makes Immunity a one-two punch to viruses and other symptoms of a weak immune system and vitamin D deficiency.

Immunity comes in an amber glass bottle with a marked dropper for easy measurement. Not sure it’s the real stuff? True to their values, Bluebird Botanicals keeps their lab tests transparent. Simply scan the QR code on the purple and orange label to read that specific batch’s lab results.

This supplement is intended to be taken like a daily vitamin. Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins you can have too much of. Always consult with your doctor before taking a new supplement.

LiftedOralSpray-Trio-scaled.jpg

Company: Lifted Made

Product:

What Makes This Brand Unique: Lifted Made is a premium hemp brand with humble beginnings. CEO Nicholas Warrender started with big dreams in a little room crafting easy-to-consume CBD products in 2015.

Today, Lifted Made is a subsidiary of Acquired Sales Co., a massive publicly traded company collecting and investing in the best brands in the hemp industry.

Warrender credits his tremendous progress over the past 5 years to the creative innovators with whom he works. Together, the team at Lifted Made strives to provide consumers with wellness boosting cannabinoid products at a reasonable price point.

In a press release Warrender stated, “Everyone wants to be healthy and stay healthy, especially in today’s environment.” It was this idea on which Lifted Made is founded.

URB Delta-8 THC Tincture Nano Drops

Lifted Made’s latest addition to their incredible variety of hemp products, URB delta-8 drops offer a fresh take on a cannabinoid you’ve been unknowingly consuming.

What is delta-8 THC? Think of it as the love child of CBD and delta-9 THC (the cannabinoid that gets you “high”).

Delta-8 is found in small quantities in hemp plants. It’s actually a derivative of CBD. The main difference between delta-8 and “regular” THC is that delta-8 acts and feels more akin to CBD, relaxing your mind and body without the high that comes with delta-9.

So, why not just take CBD? CBD works with your endocannabinoid system by binding to your brain’s C2 receptors. THC binds to your C1 receptors. Delta-8 THC appears to bind to both.

The result is the best of both worlds: a total mind-body calming experience that you can feel (but not too much).

Let’s Mango Delta-8 Nano Drops Review

Now that we’ve got your interest peaked, we’ll let you in on our experience with this newfangled but increasingly popular delta-8 THC.

Upon opening the box, we were surprised to see a hot pink opaque liquid contained inside a sea-glass matte bottle. We’re used to the traditional amber glass with a dark dropper, but Lifted Made’s design alone brings out the lighter side of life.

With a large, white dropper and lime green labeling, this product screams, “Summer Vibes!”

And rightfully so. These drops come in Go Grape, Orange Dream and Let’s Mango. The color and texture of a melted mango smoothie, Let’s Mango’s taste is as bursting with vibrance as it looks.

In fact, the flavor is so strong, we recommend adding a dropperful to juice, smoothies, seltzers, energy drinks, pre-workout mixes or whatever beverage (or even cereal) could use a fruity boost.

While most CBD tinctures need to absorb under your tongue, Lifted Made’s nano technology ensures increased bioavailability during digestion.

The beauty is that the choice is yours. The smell, taste and look of the packaging are discreet enough to pass as a liquid vitamin supplement. There is no detectable hemp flavor or scent.

You may be wondering why we suggest taking delta-8 nano drops in energy drinks and pre-workout sports drinks. The answer is in the effect.

We found that delta-8 THC reduced anxiety like a cascade of warmth washing over our bodies. Because delta-8 doesn’t make you feel “high,” it’s the perfect on-the-go stress reliever.

Energy drinks and delta-9 THC often come with uncomfortable side effects like a racing heart, the inability to take a deep breath and general tension and anxiety.

From our experience, delta-8 THC nano drops not only eliminated those symptoms, they also added an overall sense of well-being. A bike ride or scenic run felt like a new experience: one filled with a sense of gratitude for the moment, the ability to use our bodies without pain, and a heightened awareness of the open air streaming past our faces.

Suffering from insomnia? The most prominent effects of delta-8 THC we noticed was the release from bodily tension. In fact, beware of getting “velcro-butt” (getting stuck to your couch) from too much relaxation. A nightly dose of these drops will have you melting into your bed.

URB Delta-8 THC drops contain 11mg of delta-8 THC, 3mg of delta-9 THC, and 0.5mg of CBN per 1ml dropperful. Fortunately for those of you in states where THC is prohibited, the amount of delta-9 THC is below the legal limit. Instead of getting you high, it complements the effects of delta-8 THC and additional cannabinoids.

Overall, we certainly recommend exploring the brave new world of delta-8 THC, and the quality of these drops make Lifted Made’s nano drops a great place to start.
