There are different ways to process hemp and depending on how the hemp is processed, that product may be either an isolate, broad spectrum, or full spectrum. We have written on the differences between these types of products before, but you may not know what our favorite full spectrum products are in the office. Each of us took some time to pick out and review what we love and maybe don’t about our go-to full spectrum products!
Brandy’s Huron Hemp CBD Hand & Body Cream Max Strength Review
Here at GWL, we try a LOT of CBD. We have our tried and true favorites and it can be rather difficult to convince us to learn to love something new. So, I’m as surprised as you are that I’m writing about a product line that we’ve only carried since May. It’s true, though, Huron Hemp has become an instant staple in my skincare routine.
Did you know that CBD is great for your skin? The US Government does – they’ve had a patent on CBD as an antioxidant since 2003. I’m using the Hand and Body Cream Max Strength daily. I’m loving it. We’re currently in that weird mid-season shift from fall into winter here in Michigan, and this new skincare routine is handling it with ease. The Hand and Body Cream is doing its job keeping my dry elbows and knees at bay as well, and it works wonders on sore feet at the end of the day. I really enjoy the tingle from the menthol and camphor addition as well and neither product has a strong fragrance, which I really appreciate.
While these options aren’t going to help with mood stabilization or those aches and pains that you may be looking for from a whole plant option, they’ve absolutely helped me neutralize my skin and keep things calm and comfortable. Your skin matters, too! It’s the largest organ in your body, after all. Give it a try!
Cara’s Lazarus Naturals Full Spectrum Softgels Review
Lazarus is one of my favorite CBD companies. Why, you ask? I love the fact that Lazarus Naturals is committed to CBD accessibility for everyone. What, you mean anyone could afford CBD? Yes, that is their commitment. Affordable and accessible CBD! You can see that commitment in their CBD product pricing. At GWl we have some amazing products and companies that l believe in and love. However, Lazarus Naturals not only offers quality products but they are oftentimes at a fraction of the price. So when we decided to try their full spectrum softgels, I was the first one to snag a bottle.
I am here to say they did not disappoint. At 50 mg a capsule in a 40 count bottle you can’t beat the price for a high strength capsule. That is 2000 mgs total for $69.99. I love the ease of one capsule a day for all my CBD needs. It assisted me with my shoulder and knee pain and for my aches and pains was comparable to some of our higher quality brands. My only complaint would be the capsule form. They are a bit big! I felt as if I was taking a horse pill, so if swallowing large capsules is an issue, this may not be a great option. For those looking to save a buck and don’t mind a large capsule it is a great deal. I will say I do not believe them to be comparable to any raw CBD-A product so keep that in mind.
David’s Bluebird Botanicals Tincture Review
I had the pleasure of being able to review Bluebird’s Botanicals tincture. The Signature Concentrated CBD oil combines extra-strength full-spectrum hemp extract with therapeutic botanicals for an enriching and powerful blend.
In terms of effects, these all seemed to offer similar benefits, but the degrees to which those benefits were offered did vary for me. I am a cat owner. While I love my cat, she does give me allergic reactions on a pretty regular basis. Prior to starting this trial I had another bad flare up of allergies. Immediately upon starting to take the tincture, the allergies subsided.
As a perfectionist, I tend to be someone who struggles with anxiety and self-inflicted stress in the office. When the work I perform isn’t flawless or the results I achieve aren’t what I expected, I will focus on shortcomings, which makes performing other tasks for the rest of the day difficult and increases my stress levels. This tincture helped to bring me a sense of calm and stabilize my mood. Had I not been taking these tinctures, last month would have been more anxiety inducing than the month prior. It definitely had more of that earthy raw plant taste and I’m guessing that’s the extra terpenes and higher concentration of CBD in those.
I also wanted to test the tincture for it’s ability to help with pain and inflammation. I purposely scheduled a few nights where I limited my sleep to induce headaches the next day. I had 3 different nights with self-induced headaches so that I could test them all. This tincture reduced the headache to a degree. It didn’t completely eliminated the headache, but there definitely was some relief. Signature reduced the headache to a level that was barely noticeable. I think my headaches could have been completely eliminated had I taken larger amounts of the tincture. It’s important to keep in mind that everyone is unique and CBD will affect every body differently. So, your experience with this tincture could be different from mine.
Hannah’s Entourage Hemp Wholeflower CBDA Tincture Review
If you have read anything I’ve written in the past, you won’t be surprised to read that I’m going to be reviewing the Entourage Hemp Wholeflower CBDA Oil tincture. The higher strength of the Entourage Wholeflower products, the tincture and the capsules, have both been my go-to CBD products pretty much since I started working at Green Wellness Life. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia so I take CBD to help with pain, inflammation, bruising, nausea, my energy level, and general mood stabilization. It took me a couple of months to find the product that works best for me, but once I did I’ve never gone back. I take the Entourage Wholeflower tincture every morning immediately followed by a glass of water because of the strong taste.
What I like most about this product is that Entourage Wildflower to pretty much anyone who struggles with chronic pain, inflammation, and nausea like I do. It delivers 24% total cannabinoids in a tiny 10 ml bottle Blended into smooth, organic hemp seed oil (not glycerin) and amended with proprietary terpenoids. Exceptional value for such a high concentration. Independently lab tested Organic. If you’re new to CBD, this may not be an ideal starter product. The taste is very grassy and earthy due to the highly concentrated formulas. We do have many other CBD products to choose from. Our beginner’s guide is an excellent starting point on your journey.
Quinton’s MedCBDx Gum and Mints Review
I’m not typically a large fan of chewing gum or sucking on mints. When I was asked to test out MedCBDx gum and mints, I was a bit skeptical. My desire was to review it honestly while recognizing my bias against gum and mints.
I was pleasantly surprised by the mints. There no hemp taste that could be off-putting, it tasted like a regular mint. I wish there were more in the package but it’d be a great on-the-go booster.
Next, I tried the gum. This, for me, was the true test of MedCBDx. I almost never chew gum.There was a small hempy taste, it was very mild, but the overall flavor was refreshing. This is another great on-the-go booster product. I would use it again.
Overall, I would recommend the MedCBDx gum or mints to anyone who wants an easy way to get a CBD boost in.
