Who are Green Roads?
Green Roads are a proudly American company who are on a mission to offer patients a safe and effective, natural medication alternative to the synthetic chemical compound options typically prescribed by doctors. They want to inspire hope and restore happiness to those who may have lost a little of both. So far, they are delivering on this, and Green Roads currently have over one million online customers – as well as being the main CBD manufacturer and distributor for over 5,000 retail stores.
Their wide range of CBD-based products are all made in the USA, formulated by industry leading pharmacists with over 20 years’ experience. They only ever use the highest quality cannabidiol ingredients that contain 99% pure CBD isolate. This ensures their products are rich with the beneficial cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
Green Roads employ the third party laboratory Desert Valley Testing to conduct a full analysis on all of their products. This helps to certify they always produce the safest, cleanest and purest CBD-based products possible. They make the lab testing results freely available for all to see on their website. This transparency suggests Green Roads are a company who are true to their word that you can trust.
What medical conditions can the oil be used to treat?
On the Green Roads website, they claim this CBD oil could be used to treat any condition possibly caused by Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD). They state this includes chronic pain, inflammation, headaches and other conditions.
There is scientific evidence to suggest CBD oil could be a helpful treatment for a long list of different conditions on top of the ones mentioned on Green Roads website, including depression, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, and more. If you are unsure about CBD being helpful for your condition, please carry out some research first. There is a lot of excellent information available online.
Please note, this CBD oil would be considered lower strength. Although scientific evidence suggests CBD can help with very serious conditions such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s, this concentration would likely not be strong enough. As an example, a child who suffers from seizures would typically require 300mg of CBD daily to see a benefit. With 350mg of CBD in the entire bottle, this product may not be suitable and you should consider other, stronger-strength CBD products.
What is the quality of the oil?
The oil arrives in a small bottle with a bright, clear label, telling you everything about what is in the oil and the suggested dosage. The bottle top also doubles as a pipette which, combined with the small size, means it would be perfect to take with you to get your CBD goodness whenever and wherever you are. It is a dark bottle, which is good as it will protect the oil from sun rays that can ruin CBD oils.
I filled the pipette and took the suggested amount of three drops, which should give me a measurement of around 12 mg of CBD. I held the oil in my mouth for around 10 seconds and then swallowed. The taste was OK – a bit like a cucumber flavor; the oil is vegetable glycerine based, and that is clear from this taste. After I swallowed, the bitter aftertaste you get with most CBD oils hit. I always like this taste, as it acts as an extra reassurance that I am getting my CBD infusion! There is no added flavor, but if you vape your oil, the bottle states you can mix in vape juice to get your desired taste.
The actual quality of the CBD in the oil is in no doubt. Green Roads use only the highest quality of organic certified hemp with no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers involved in the growing process. They use an enriched CO2 extraction process, leaving them with 99% pure CBD isolates containing no solvents at all. This is then formulated by top pharmacists with 20+ years’ experience, and the final product is put through its paces by a third party laboratory. You can see for yourself the results of this third party testing on their website, and this oil is as pure as it can possibly be. Green Roads go to great lengths to ensure their products are among the best on the market and this CBD oil is no different. An excellent quality oil.
What effects does the oil have?
As I took the oil sublingually with drops under my tongue, the CBD infused at a fast rate, meaning I didn’t have to wait long to feel the effects. My anxiety ebbed away, my mood became more cheerful, and I feel relaxed. I took my drops in the morning and it set me up for the day nicely. When I went to sleep that night, I drifted off immediately with no problems. My knee joints are affected by pains too, and this became a lot less noticeable for the day, which is great as makes walking around easy, which it isn’t always.
This oil helped me with anxiety, insomnia, pain and depression in that it made my general mood feel more uplifted. As well as this, it could also be helpful for a number of additional conditions including headaches, inflammation, and more. With its relatively low CBD dosage, I feel the oil would be perfect for all of these mentioned conditions. The dosage also makes this a great entry point for those new to CBD treatments. The oil would not be suitable for more serious conditions such as seizures or Alzheimer’s, because these would typically require higher doses of CBD to see an effect.
A quick look at the lab sheet Green Roads provide on their website of Desert Valley Testings test results shows that this CBD oil contains absolutely no THC. This means the oil has no psychoactive side effects commonly associated with recreational marijuana use. THC is the active ingredient in cannabis which causes the “stoned” buzz recreational users look for. With no THC, there is none of these effects. This means the oil is legal for use in every state in America and you can have it delivered to your doorstep with no worries of legal ramifications.
How does the price compare?
If purchased via Green Roads website, a bottle of this CBD oil will set you back $64.99. In terms of what other companies charge, this puts the oil in the middle to high end of the pricing spectrum. There are cheaper options, but there are certainly more expensive too. Although you may be able to find lower priced oils out there, with this product, the additional cost is certainly worth it. Green Roads have been doing this for a long time and are rightly regarded as market leaders. They cut no corners in their CBD production and it really shows with this oil. This is more than worth the extra few dollars, especially if this is your first foray into the world of CBD. If you don’t go for the best when you start using CBD, you are less likely to see a benefit, which could turn you off to CBD for life.
