Trying to determine which CBD brand to go with for your first purchase can be tricky. With so many different products on the market, it's difficult to know where to start. In this short guide, we'll help you out by comparing two of the most popular brands in the industry today: Farmulated and NuLeaf Naturals. We'll cover some of the main pros and cons of each company so that you can make a more informed decision about which one could be right for you.
A CBD Introduction
Before we begin learning about Farmulated and NuLeaf Naturals, let's first take a moment to learn a little more about CBD itself: What is it? How is it made? CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, comes from marijuana and hemp plants. Unlike the compound THC (also found in the plant), CBD does not have any psychoactive effects due to the absence of THC, so it won't make you feel "high." Although more research is needed, many studies show that CBD has a plethora of potential health benefits, including easing pain, inflammation, and even anxiety.
Farmulated CBD only uses sustainably grown and harvested hemp that is processed on our farm in Pennsylvania. We utilize a CO2 extraction method, which means we extract only the beneficial molecules using high pressure and low temperatures. This process results in purer CBD oil, free of any solvents.
A Unique Offering From Farmulated
Not many brands offer a CBD Freeze Roll-On Gel, but Farmulated does! This gel is infused with soothing menthol to target inflammation and pain, utilizing cryotherapy technology for rapid skin penetration.
CBD has been shown to effectively target pain and inflammation, which makes this product perfect not just for athletes or seniors, but anyone seeking an easy way to improve their quality of life. This Farmulated product is also unique in that it's non-irritating, making it a great choice for people with sensitive skin.
Farmulated is a family-owned business passed down through the generations and located in Erie County, PA. All of our CBD products are made with organic hemp that is grown on our U.S. farm, and we don't use any GMO ingredients. You can choose from several different kinds of CBD products, like topicals and tinctures, edibles and pet supplies, or even soaps. Our tinctures also come in three different strengths (500mg, 1000mg, and 2000mg) for your convenience. Additionally, we offer both full-spectrum and THC-free options giving you even more choice.
Our renowned chemist Kate Wellmon uses only the best processing practices to create superior cannabidiol for our customers. By hand-selecting only the finest hemp, we are able to produce a CBD oil that is safe and of premium quality. Our oil is also submitted to third-party testing on a regular basis in order to guarantee maximum transparency and efficacy.
At Farmulated CBD, our customers' satisfaction is always our top priority. We only use the highest-quality ingredients and the most affordable prices so that anyone can experience the benefits of CBD. Our hemp is grown using sustainable farming practices without any genetic modification. And to ensure premium quality, we process all of our extracts in-house with state of the art CO2 processing machines. This way, we preserve all of the natural byproducts that make hemp so beneficial for your health. We go the extra mile to make sure our products are top quality. That's why we have every batch of CBD extract third-party tested for heavy metals, pesticides, and a complete cannabinoid profile. And this information is always accessible to our customers.
