The CBD market has been praised for the rate of growth witnessed. As per a RollingStone post, who has since quoted a group of analysts dubbed, “The Brightfield Group,” this respective market is expected to reach $22 billion by 2022. Why is there so much hype surrounding CBD?
CBD is a hemp-derived cannabinoid that has been noted for its medicinal properties. The flowering plant that hemp comes from also carries marijuana, which for some time left many questioning the health benefits of CBD because of the mind-altering properties of another cannabinoid called THC.
While regulation on this matter is gradually becoming lax, there’s still some doubt surrounding it. Ultimately, CBD firms are in a position to bring confidence to consumers as the end results of using said products should be positive enough for regulators to welcome them with open arms.
This is why the following review will introduce Hemplucid. In doing so, consumers will have some sense of whether or not they are reliable CBD providers, carry effective and variety of products and whether or not their essentials are affordable for the average consumer.
What Is Hemplucid?
Hemplucid is a brand that offers CBD-incorporated essentials with the intention of maximizing overall wellness. As per the claims made, what makes them unique is their products’ speed of absorption, diversity in taste and medium of ingestion and the different effects in terms of time they were able to achieve. To see if these three facets hold true, an analysis of the products offered is vital.
Hemplucid Product Line
Diversity does not seem to be lagging on behalf of Hemplucid, as the firm has since offered various whole plant tinctures, Isoterp CBD tinctures, capsules, gummies, body essentials and CBD for pets. The following will branch out products from different categories to get a complete sense of the diversity present in said products:
Whole Plant CBD Tinctures
Four Whole Plant CBD Tinctures are currently offered which were drenched in water, MCT Oil, Hemp Seed Oil and the essential need for vaping. The solutions they’ve been drenched in are also referred to as carrying oil, where each one contains different nutritional properties.
For instance, the one with the MCT oil is deemed as the most nutritious and stronger in flavor. Also, both Hemp Seed and MCT oils give longer lasting results (i.e. 6 to 8), whereas the Water-Soluble CBD lasts anywhere between 2 and 4 due to its “nano-sized cannabinoid particles”. As for the Vape/ Drip tincture, it can be treated as an oral application (right on the tongue), in beverages or for vaping purposes. These tinctures come in differing strengths which range between 250mg and 1500mg with prices varying anywhere between $46 and $200.
Isoterp CBD Tinctures
Terpenes are the aromatic and flavor components found within hemp plants. Interestingly, they play a significant role in the therapeutic effects of CBD. In most cases, the overall CBD extraction process can get so intense that we are only left with pure CBD. As per the claims made, such a process that eliminates everything, including terpenes, can result in a rather weak solution. Hence the reason for the existence of Hemplucid’s line of Isoterp CBD tinctures.
Two types are offered, which include the “THC Free Isoterp CBD in MCT Oil” and the “THC Free Isoterp CBD Water Soluble,” which range between $35 and $115 in prices. As for its uses, consumers are suggested to test small quantities to attain best results without hitting the body too hard.
Supporting products include CBD-infused wax, Softgels, gummies, lip balm, and body creams – with the latter still awaiting launch.
If tinctures are not the most preferred method of ingesting CBD and consumers are still interested in longer lasting results, the two next best options would be the “Whole-Plant CBD Soft Gel Capsules”, which cost between $89 and $220, and the “Whole-Plant CBD Edible Gummies,” which cost between $34 and $140. Since both are metabolized in the digestive system, they naturally take longer to be felt, typically between 4 and 6 hours. Also, the former is slightly higher in strength compared to the latter per serving.
For faster results within this respective category of products, consumers can also consider the “Hemplucid Wax”, which supposedly contains 200mg of CBD. Through the use of CO2 extraction, the team at Hemplucid were successful in retrieving a golden yellow wax that also contains terpenes. This product is intended for wax rig usage or as a vaporizer. Consumers can expect to invest about $45.
CBD For Pets
Hemplucid currently offers whole plant CBD for both cats and dogs. According to Hemplucid, some of the benefits that pets can attain include eased anxiety levels, overall homeostasis state, increased energy levels, and mobility, bettered digestive system and enhanced fur health. The difference in the two rests in the flavors, as the CBD made for cats contains fish flavor, whereas the one directed towards dogs contain chicken flavor. Both come in two strengths: 100mg and 300mg and varies in prices (i.e. $25 to $55).
Based on the analysis above, it is clear that Hemplucid has completed extensive research in coming up with their products. In most cases, brands focus on extracting the purest form of CBD but have failed to realize that a full-spectrum is far more beneficial. Full spectrum is when more than one type of cannabinoid has been incorporated, which is the case for Hemplucid and also remains as their competitive edge.
Furthermore, their level of transparency is praiseworthy as they’ve not only provided lab results for their products but also the necessary certificates which confirm their organic approach towards extracting CBD. Finally, the different strength levels offered along with diverse mediums of delivery goes to show that they want what’s best for every individual.
