Written by Tony Ottomanelli

Many claims are being made about what Cannabidiol (CBD) can potentially treat when used as a therapeutic alternative.

There is much to learn from information found in the book, Healing with Hemp CBD Oil by Dr. Earl Mindell and also available online at the National Library of Medicine. These reliable sources explain the potential for Cannabidiol to treat anxiety, brittle bones, high blood pressure, acne, arthritis pain, blood clots, high cholesterol, hormonal imbalance, PTSD, infections, inflammation, heart disease, insomnia, PMS, stress, multiple sclerosis and more. Below I will be covering a few of my favorite brands in the CBD industry. 

Pinnacle Hemp CBD

Pinnacle Hemp products are so much more than just CBD. This company focuses on mixing cannabinoids and Terpenes together for a full spectrum effect. There is also a strong emphasis on manufacturing consistency and selling a broad-spectrum CBD product, which is second to none.

Pinnacle is one of the only hemp/cannabis/CBD brands in Missouri, so with medical cannabis being legalized now in the state, there are endless opportunities ahead. However, Pinnacle prides itself on being a stand alone, independently owned and operated company — which is indeed something to be proud of.

An Assortment of Products

This is one brand you will never find on the shelves of convenience stores or for sale at gas stations. It is more of a specialty brand. You can find it in Vape shops, CBD retail stores, but also it is found in several Chiropractic offices. Therefore Pinnacle is gaining a more medical-based portfolio of clientele.

Of course, you can also order their products from the Pinnacle Hemp website. When visiting the site, you’ll notice how they offer CBD in many forms such as tinctures, capsules, vaping products, edibles, pet products and bath and body products.

The Winston Man 

In addition, Pinnacle has also teamed up with the legendary advocate David Goerlitz in order to create the David G. Series of flavored CBD Oil that can be used as a tincture or used in a vape device.

David Goerlitz has become a symbol of public health and harm reduction ever since he quit his job as the Winston Man back in the 80’s, after appearing in more than 40 cigarette ads, including commercials and billboards. Now his life is practically the complete opposite when compared to his past work as the Winston Man. Suffering from COPD, he uses Pinnacle Hemp to manage his symptoms.

All Pinnacle Hemp products come highly recommended. This is without a doubt one of the top brands that everyone should be trying. The testimonials from customers are all positive as their products are extremely well-made. Pinnacle Hemp is rapidly expanding and all their products are currently in over 40 U.S. states and 6 countries.

Bluebird Botanicals CBD

Another one of the best CBD brands that everyone should try is none other than Bluebird Botanicals. Bluebird is based just outside of Boulder, Colorado in Louisville and has some of the highest quality products on the market.

Taking this into account, Bluebird Botanicals was named the Best Hemp company at the 2018 Cannabis Business Awards. Bluebird Botanicals is undoubtedly on the cutting edge of this industry. They are investing in a style of professionalism that could easily benefit and protect the CBD industry if other companies were to follow suit.

Money Aside, CBD for All 

Bluebird Botanicals proclaims, “Compassion, transparency, generosity, reliability and altruism are at our core and run deeply throughout all of our business practices.” From this, it is vital to inform everyone about their assistance programs.

For instance, people who are living under the federal poverty level could be eligible for discounts on products, in which they allow candidates to apply through their website. This is referred to as the Low Income Program. Not to mention, BB also has a Veterans Program, allowing all US military veterans to receive discounts on products. Once again, the application process can be handled through their helpful instructions that can be found on the Bluebird website.

Lastly, the Bluebird Botanicals assistance program also recognizes those who have disabilities. Therefore, they offer a Long-term Disability Program for any consumers who are fall into that category. That means Bluebird will provide a discount on full price retail orders, every time you shop. But first you must apply through their website.

Lab Testing and Certifications 

Bluebird botanicals is also recognized as being the first temp company to have its products certified for being Glyphosate Residue Free by The Detox Project. As mentioned previously, this company is on the cutting edge, so they are highly competitive — meaning they take compliance very seriously and express themselves as true advocates.

Bluebird is a major leader within the industry for having a Gold Standard Quality Control System — striving to prove why they belong at the very top of the entire CBD hemp industry.

All things considered, Bluebird offers CBD products as extracts, concentrated extracts, isolate, capsules, concentrated capsules, vape options and hemp blends for animals.

Green Roads World CBD

Another one of the most trusted names in the entire CBD industry offers CBD oils, edibles, CBD Terpenes, topical creams, capsules, concentrates, syrups and CBD beverages. Headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
Green Roads World prides itself as being the first pharmacist-founded company in the entire industry of CBD.

Lab Test Products Chosen by a Licenses Pharmacist 

This is certainly a fascinating feature to the entire Green Roads World brand and has likely been one of the primary reasons so many people have
Green Roads states, “We are an award-winning company with multi-stage, third party lab testing for quality and safety. Product supplement facts, dosing instructions and lab test results are included on all Green Roads packaging for full product transparency.”

Considering this, one impressive business approach taken by the Green Roads World CBD company is that they have developed a division that is dedicated solely to athletics. It is referred to as the Green Roads Athletics Division. This particular business model likely reveals how we will see more CBD companies emerging to the forefront by building similar strategies.

Products, Products, and More Products

The Green Roads World CBD catalogue of products seems endless. They offer consumers CBD dab crystals, CBD infused muscle and joint relief cream, CBD skin relief cream, CBD daily dose gummy‘s in several flavors.
Not to mention, Green Roads offers a variety of bundle options.

For example, there is a beginners relief bundle, a beginners relax bundle, a traveler’s CBD bundle, a grab and go bundle, a stars and stripes CBD bundle, CBD essentials bundle, a founders favorite CBD bundle. In addition, there are drinkable products available, such as CBD coffee and CBD tea.

Lastly, Green Roads also has a canine formula for treating dogs. Their tagline is “Green Roads CBD: Natural Hemp Products For. Healthier You.” Additionally, these award-winning products have been featured on CBS, ESPN, Forbes, NBC, Cosmopolitan and several other major media outlets.

So Many Brands, So Little Time

The fact of the matter is that there are so many CBD brands currently. Every day it seems like there is a new brand being launched with a catchy name and unique product to attract consumers.

At the same time, unfortunately, there are also quite a few bad apples that some might refer to as snake oil, but there are simultaneously some very dedicated advocacy organizations within the industry that are keeping a close eye and hoping to eradicate the industry of such issues.

Regardless, there are also almost too many brands to choose from when discussing which ones are the top CBD brands everyone should try. To be honest, the list of top quality brands is getting more competitive as the hands of time move forward. This article is by no means the last of its kind — this is just the beginning of attempt to cover some of the best quality products within the CBD industry and why consumers should try them.

Therefore, you can look forward to reading more about this topic in the very near future, as this is merely just a slight introduction.
