Hemp CBD Oil continues to rise in popularity as new studies prove the importance of a healthy endocannabinoid system to every single aspect of our well-being.

With so many different CBD oils, we decided it was time to perform a comprehensive review. Watch the video below to learn what to look for and avoid in CBD Oil Brands.

CBD Oil Best Top Choice

Is Mental or Physical Pain Sucking Your Energy?

High levels of stress or pain are your body's way of signaling it’s overwhelmed and needs some attention. It’s almost always caused by a deeper issue. Left untreated it can morph into an entirely different set of red alarms telling you something major is going on and you need to take action.

Daily mental or physical distress is like an energy vampire siphoning both your physical and mental energy. This stops you from getting a restful sleep and now you’re even more tired the next day.

4 Ways CBD Oil Could Help You

  • Pain Management: Hemp CBD has been researched for a large variety of pain issues. For these pain points, stronger Full Spectrum CBD oils and CBD capsules are recommended. Users have reported less pain, less inflammation, and higher circulation.
  • Mental HealthResearch shows CBD is making strides in Mental Health. Isolated CBD sprays, CBD vapes, and CBD edibles are recommended with proprietary formulas to target specific issues. Users have reported more focus, energy, calm and less overall anxiety.
  • Cancer: New research shows how CBD can help with much needed immune support and appetite regulation. Many users report the CBD vapes, oils and sprays especially help as they can consume it without having to put anything in their stomach.
  • Insomnia: CBD is designed to help slow the body to work most efficiently. Many CBD products are isolated with melatonin to help with sleep regulation. Users report increased energy, more restful and longer periods of undisturbed sleep. This comes without the groggy side effects most pharmaceutical medications. 

The 4 Keys To Choosing An Effective CBD Oil

With so many CBD brands on the market, it can be difficult to make the right choice. The following five are our top criteria will help you tell the difference between an effective CBD Oil and yet another inferior, ineffective brand. 

Our research and analysis have shown for a Hemp CBD Oil to be effective, it must meet these criteria: 

  • Tested CBD Oil | Hemp CBD Oil has fewer cannabinoids than cannabis CBD. Cannabis CBD is not legal in most states, but Hemp CBD is legal in all states. Help CBD Oil can be as effective but it has to be tested for potency. Look for at bare minimum 70%, but a great brand has 99%. These oils should be grown in soil rich in nutrients as hemp pulls directly from the soil. You want to know the actual source of the grow.  

  • Number of MGs | Hemp CBD Oils for deeper pains need higher milligrams per ounce. 500mg minimum. 1,000 is average, but 1,400-1,500 tested CBD oil is strength most commonly found in clinical trials as this allows for continuous cannabinoid levels. 

  • Cannabinoid Diversity | Full Spectrum | Many CBD oils are targeted or isolated, as there are over 60 different cannabinoids, but to get the entire effectiveness, look for a Full Spectrum CBD Oil.

  • Avoid Additives + Snake Oils | Make sure you see/read the ingredients label, avoid oils with anything added other than natural flavoring. Laboratory tested to ensure safety and potency.

What You Should Avoid

  1. Untested Hemp Oils

    If it wasn't tested for purity or tested for safety, run. If you grow a great product you're truly proud of, you would be able to prove it. 

  2. Chemicals or Irritants

    You want a product that is free of chemicals and other ingredients that could potentially upset your body more. The CBD oil you choose should have logos showing it's organic. Also look for non-GMO, no pesticides, herbicides, solvents or chemical fertilizers.

  3. Amazon Snake Oils Reviews

    Up to 65% of Amazon reviews are written by paid individuals, and some of them might not have tried the product. Relying on fake reviews is a dangerous game to play with your health. We've even heard reports of some sending olive oils tricking customers. There is no regulation.
