CBD Oil Review

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, and is one of a group of compounds called cannabinoids. These are natural chemical compounds which come from plants in the genus Cannabis, and they interact with the body in a variety of ways.

* Since the release of this video, CBD has been legalized in all 50 states

How CBD Works

Like other cannabinoids, CBD works by interacting with receptors found throughout the body—in our organs, connective tissues, glands, immune cells, and brain. It is able to do this because it closely resembles chemicals that the body creates naturally. This system of chemicals and receptors is known as the endocannabinoid system.

The Benefits of CBD

CBD has many known benefits with more benefits being discovered every day. Because the endocannabinoid system is so integral to a broad range of vital functions, CBD can impact the human body in a variety of ways. Researchers are studying the mechanisms that are responsible for CBD’s known applications, which include:

  • Analgesic – it provides relief from pain
  • Anxiolytic – it reduces anxiety
  • Anti-ischemic – it facilitates blood flow to the brain and heart
  • Anti-inflammatory – it reduces inflammation or swelling
  • Antioxidant – it protects the body from harmful free radicals, molecules which interfere with healthy cell functions
  • Neuroprotective – it protects nerve cells from damage or deterioration
  • Pro-apoptotic – it may cause cancer cells to self-destruct

The Most Common Ways CBD is Used

CBD oil can be consumed in several different ways. These include:

  • Capsule: CBD oils may be manufactured as small capsules that are orally ingested.
  • Tincture: Another form of oral CBD oil ingestion is the tincture, often used as a food additive. Tinctures are sold in dropper bottles; most users place one or two drops beneath their tongue for several minutes in order to experience the full effects. Tinctures normally have stronger concentrations compared to other CBD products.
  • Vapor: CBD vapor (also known as ‘vape’ or ‘vape juice’) is heated and inhaled using a vaporizer pen or e-cigarette. Concentrations vary.
  • Spray: CBD oil can be ingested as an oral spray. Sprays tend to have lower concentrations compared to other CBD products.
  • Topical: This form of CBD oil is applied directly to the skin; it usually has the consistency of lotion.

What is CBD Known to Treat

People find many different reasons to use CBD, but some of the most common reasons are as follows:

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • ADHD
  • Alcoholism
  • Antibiotic-resistant infections
  • Asthma
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Neurological ailments
  • PTSD
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Sleep disorders
  • Period pain and menstrual cramps

Our Research and Review Process

Consumer-Rated and our volunteers were on a mission to find the best CBD oil that could treat the many ailments. Consumer-Rated purchased several oil tinctures from over 50 popular CBD providers both offline and online. There were over 340 participants who volunteered their time to give an honest review on each of the products. The study started in August 2018 and is currently in progress as of today.

Our Reviews and Ratings Criteria

The criteria we used to rate the products were:

1) CBD oil had to be manufactured in the USA.

2) CBD oil had claim to contain less than 0.5% THC.

3) CBD oil had to have been lab tested.

4) There were to be no artificial additives or GMOs.

5) Price of product had to be competitive with industry standard.

6) The most important criteria, the product had to work on various ailments it advertises to treat.

7) If we were not satisfied with product, there was a money-back guarantee. Also that they did honor their guarantee as described.

By offering and most important honoring their guarantee is proving that they truly stand behind their program.

How to Become a 5-Star Rated Program

In order to get 5 stars which is our highest rating, the product and/or company would have had to meet all of the criteria we’ve set prior to review research. In addition, there would have had to be some other determining factors that sets the product/company apart from the rest.

Ongoing Review

Our review project for the current CBD oil products started in August 2018 and is still in progress. Many of the volunteers are still using the previous reviewed CBD oil products as well as some new CBD oil products. Consumer-Rated will continue to receive the review data and update our reviews accordingly with an ongoing review.

The Review Facts and Data

Our research showed that many of the products we reviewed were very deceptive in their marketing. As many as 70% of the products we reviewed didn’t contain the advertised amount of CBD. Of the remaining 30%, only about 16% used high quality CBD. Then out of the 16%. only 7% met the criteria that was set in place for the review.

The Bottom Line

There are a lot of CBD companies popping up every day and from our research it appears only about 7% are selling a product that is as advertised.

As you will see from the Review Data above, that we found three five-star rated programs. There were seven programs that were honorable mentions with a three or four-star rating. There were ten programs that were bad enough to make a one to two start rating and there were seven programs that were straight up scams and didn’t even get a one-star rating.

Review Overview
NewWorldCBD.com exceeded our review criteria by a large margin. Of all of the CBD products our volunteers reviewed there was no other company or product even close.

The Review Criteria

1) CBD oil had to be manufactured in the USA.

New World CBD is not only grown and manufactured in the USA, it is one of the only companies we reviewed that handles the complete process from seed to product. This could explain the high quality at a low price being that New World CBD handles all aspects of the processing.

2) CBD oil had claim to contain less than 0.5% THC.

Upon several tests New World CBD’s CBD oil came in at well under 0.3% THC which is not detectable in any drug tests. This is important for those who get drug tested as we found many other company’s CBD oil was above the amount that could be detected in a drug test. It is good to know New World CBD can be reliable to not present THC in your system for drug tests.

3) CBD oil had to have been lab tested.

You can get updated third-party lab test directly on NewWorldCBD.com. They present the lab test on each individual product and is very simply to locate on product pages. This is very admirable as most CBD website don’t list any lab results which tells us we have no idea what they are putting in their products.

4) There were to be no artificial additives or GMOs.

As listed in their test as well as our own independent testing, we have verified that New World CBD is not using any unnatural additives. This is where many of the other CBD oils failed. New World CBD passed with flying colors.

5) Price of product had to be competitive with industry standard.

Not only were New World CBD prices competitive, they were among the lowest of any CBD company we reviewed. One of the biggest positives we saw with New World CBD was they actually gave more than what they advertised. When most CBD oils were being short the milliard amounts, New World CBD was actually giving more than advertised.

6) The most important criteria, the product had to work on various ailments it advertises to treat.

Out of all of the CBD oils we reviewed, they are the only one that received a perfect 100 score in performance. Many of our review volunteers used New Word CBD oil for many different ailments and they all scored New World CBD 100. This goes to show New World CBD is the best CBGD oils on the market from what we have reviewed.

7) If we were not satisfied with product, there was a money-back guarantee. Also that they did honor their guarantee as described.

If your not satisfied with any of New World CBD products, you can return them for a full refund with in a given time. Most important, New World CBD does honor their guarantee.

Review Overview
CBDfx.com came in a distant second as a four-star product. The one winner they did have was their Lychee Lemon Kiwi flavor of their CBD oil which was a volunteer favorite flavor.

The Review Criteria

1) CBD oil had to be manufactured in the USA.

CBDfx is manufactured in the USA. However, it wasn’t clear whether they are part of the whole process from seed to product like New World CBD.

2) CBD oil had claim to contain less than 0.5% THC.

CBDfx was well under 0.3% THC which is not detectable in any drug tests.

3) CBD oil had to have been lab tested.

Although it had to be requested, we were presented with lab results for the CBD oil from CBDfx. All of the products are as advertised with the amount of CBD that is being sold.

4) There were to be no artificial additives or GMOs.

No artificial additives were detected.

5) Price of product had to be competitive with industry standard.

The price was a little above average which scored CBDfx a little lower. Compared to other CBD products at same price, CBDfx was by far a better product.

6) The most important criteria, the product had to work on various ailments it advertises to treat.

Most of the volunteers reported CBDfx to be effective for their ailments. There were a few lower scores because the effect wasn’t what the review volunteer expected. Basically they were expecting a better result than what they got.

7) If we were not satisfied with product, there was a money-back guarantee. Also that they did honor their guarantee as described.

CBDfx does offer a product guarantee and will honor their refund guarantee if asked.

Review Conclusion

CBDfx does offer a great product at an okay price. Although New World CBD does have a better CBD oil, there are many other products CBDfx offers that would be worth trying based on what we witnessed from their CBD oil.

The pricing of all of CBD American Shaman products are very competitive and in many cases lower than other competitors.

6) The most important criteria, the product had to work on various ailments it advertises to treat.

This is really the only criteria category CBD American Shaman lacked. We are not sure if it is because they only offer a 300 mg CBD oil. The product was effective on most ailments but required a larger dose to accomplish the task.

7) If we were not satisfied with product, there was a money-back guarantee. Also that they did honor their guarantee as described.

CBD American Shaman offers the best refund guarantee of 45 days of purchase and they will honor their guarantee.

Like CBD American Shaman, SOL CBD was probably not as effective because of the 300 mg CBD oil that was reviewed. They do have higher doses which might be the better alternative but will be more expensive.
