I’m now turning my eyes over to a fascinating UK based hemp brand in Herts Hemp, reviewing the first of two products over the next couple of weeks. I’m starting off with the 10% CBD full spectrum cannabis oil drops, the staple of their product range.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
As is often the case, the 10% cannabis oil is served in a 10ml tincture, meaning each pack contains 1,000mg of CBD.
At the bottom of the pack you will see a batch code, just below the expiry date. This will highlight the code you need to check on their website so you can find the relevant third party lab test. The lab reports are performed by Phytovista, who are certainly the most commonly used and trusted lab for CBD brands within the UK.
Outside of the expected CBD and CBDA, being a full spectrum cannabis oil it means you can also expect a number of other cannabinoids to be present.
The certificate of analysis is showing a presence of CBDV, CBDVA, CBG, CBGA, CBN, THC, CBC, THCA and CBCA. If you’d like to learn more about what you can find in cannabis, then you might want to read my article on the various cannabinoids present in cannabis.
If you’ve read a few of my articles, you’ll also know I’m a fan of a CBD oil that contains CBG, while I’m also excited to review the next product by Herts Hemp, being a 500mg CBG oil.
Each drop of the Herts Hemp CBD oil contains approximately 4mg of CBD, while they recommend between 5-10 drops per day, which would be between 20-40mg of CBD. I like to focus most of my consumption 30 minutes before going to bed, as my main aim is to enhance my sleeping patterns, however you can take it based on your personal requirements and reason for supplementing with CBD. I therefore took 3 drops in the morning and 5 drops 30 minutes before bed.
The FSA max recommendation is 70mg in a day, so you shouldn’t go over 17.5 drops, however you probably wouldn’t get near that figure in most scenarios.
Herts Hemp uses non-GMO hemp grown within the EU, while most importantly, it’s completely organic, meaning you won’t find any pesticides or chemical fertilisers used at any step of the process.
They use CO2 extraction methods, which are fast becoming commonplace in the industry as the benchmark standard of extraction to ensure high levels of cannabinoids in the oil. All batches are tested to ensure they meet quality standards and have the required level of cannabinoids present.
Who Are Herts Hemp?
As you will be able to see from their logo on the packaging, the Herts Hemp brand was launched in 2015, however this Hertfordshire based brand has grown exponentially with a focus on producing hemp based products of the highest quality.
Created by Hakan Hemstrom in a town I love to visit every six months to see friends (St Albans), Herts Hemp are a proud member of the Cannabis Trade Association in the UK, which now hosts 450 registered businesses at the time of writing, helping to promote good practice, provide practical advice and ensure consumers gain access to information on the industry.
Is This Product Vegan Friendly?
Yes, this tincture only contains hemp seed oil and hemp extract, both obviously being plant based, meaning it is completely fine for people on a vegan diet.
Where Can I Buy This From?
You can purchase their CBD + CBDA oil in several sizes: 250mg, 500mg, 1,000mg or 1,800mg. If you’d like to purchase the 1,000mg CBD oil I’ve been testing, you can order it from their website for £62.50. Herts Hemp also offer free delivery on all orders within the UK. You can also enjoy 15% off with the discount code ‘CBDSLOTH15’.
