The packaging of this particular CBD product was sleek and crisp. A white label surrounds a dark colored bottle but leaves some room to see the remaining capsules. The label also states that the capsules are nanomulsified and made from organically grown hemp, sourced and manufactured in the United States. The bottle was easy to open thanks to the perforated plastic packaging. When I opened the bottle, I noticed a cotton ball on the capsules that was supposed to keep the capsules fresh. Overall, it was a very well presented product.
The soft gels are soft, but very durable. I squeezed the capsule tightly to see if it would burst. It was only after applying a lot of pressure that they burst, and the liquid inside was clear and rather sticky. This was more of a curiosity than a verification requirement, but it's good to note that you should be careful when handling these capsules.
The product was wonderfully easy to use. All you have to do is unscrew the child-resistant cap, remove the cotton and shake out a capsule.
I rate the company's trustworthiness a 6. The reason it gets this low is because I don't like the fact that the company doesn't do third-party testing, but tests its own products in its own facility. This may not instill confidence as the company is testing its own products. How does the consumer know the company is honest? Third-party laboratories offer unbiased testing, which makes their laboratory results more credible. Plus, there aren't many reviews either on the company's website or on Facebook, which doesn't add confidence to the company as it should. This does not mean that the company does not produce what it preaches. It would only be comforting if the lab results were from an unaffiliated lab.
Effects & benefits
One of the most difficult tasks when reviewing CBD is evaluating the effectiveness of the product. Many people believe that CBD doesn't really work, or just cares about the matter. Other people claim that CBD has helped them a lot in dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, and mild joint pain. I mainly take CBD for stress and calming effects. I don't take it in large amounts either, as I feel like I only need a small amount per day to keep my stress in check. I rate this product a 7 because it seems to help me relax and manage my time better. CBD may work differently for you. It will therefore take some trial and error to find the right amount of CBD to help you.
I would recommend this product to a friend because it is so easy to use. You can easily incorporate it into your daily multivitamin regiment or take it with your morning coffee. CBD has been reported to help so many people in so many ways. Given the growing uncertainty and high levels of stress due to the Covid-19 pandemic, CBD could be the new way to tackle these issues.
Price versus value
These capsules are listed on the company's website for $ 39.95 as a one-time purchase. There are several other purchase options as well, ranging from $ 69.95 to $ 179.95 (based on the number of capsules in a single bottle, as well as the amount of CBD per bottle). I think the price is pretty fair and gives consumers a real bang for their buck as I've seen some capsules for almost $ 70 as a one-time purchase.
