HempMeds CBD Oil
Are you looking for a sublingual to take hemp oil? Real Scientific Hemp Oil by HempMeds comes in three different lines — Green, Blue, and Gold — representing different strengths of hemp extract to be taken orally. RSHO products come in large syringes with dosing measurements on the syringe itself. This is a good method of consumption for those who don’t mind the taste of oil and are interested in a sublingual.
What you Need to Know About These Products
The Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RHSO) is to be taken orally by dispensing a serving size onto the tip of your finger or a spoon and placing under the tongue. Hold the product in your mouth for 60 seconds before swallowing. A serving size is .5G and the tubes clearly mark the serving sizes. The Blue and Gold Label come in 3G and 10G tubes while the Green Label comes in 3G and 15G tubes. They vary in potency with the Green Label having the least amount of extract and the Gold Label having the most.
Coloration and Viscosity
What does color mean about a CBD Oil?
These products have been decarboxylated, which means that a carbon atom has been removed from the carbon chain when the oil was heated up. This turns CBDA into CBD. This form will fit your body’s natural CBD receptors better and is often referred to as “active” CBD because of this. Decarboxylated oil will be of a thicker consistency and look dark green to black in color at room temperature. HempMeds uses supercritical CO2 extraction processes, which are the gold standard in the industry. This process uses carbon dioxide at various temperatures and pressures to extract the oil from the raw plant material. This is widely preferred as an extraction method versus those that use harsh chemical solvents. The website states that the Green label oil is raw, the Blue label oil is unfiltered and the Gold Label oil is filtered. The more filtering an oil has had the lighter in color it will be. The company does not state what the difference between raw and unfiltered is, although the products do get lighter in color matching their descriptions.
Flavor and Scent
How does it smell?
The RHSO is thick and contained in a syringe. The Green label has the most pungent, earthy scent to it very similar to the Blue label. The Gold label has a gentler smell than the Green and Blue, but still potent. Hemp oil has a unique smell to it that is stronger with less filtering. This oil is also not infused with another product, so it stands out.
How does it taste?
The taste is similar to other forms of hemp oil. A bit tart and foreign if you’re new to hemp oil. Regardless, it’s still fairly easy to swallow although it won’t taste great. The website instructs you to hold the product under your tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing.
HempMeds products go through their own rigorous Triple Lab Testing process. This means that each product is tested three times during production for safety and quality standards by independent laboratories. First, the oil is tested after extraction from the hemp plant. Second, it’s tested once it arrives in the United States after being shipped from Europe. Third, samples from each batch of their final products are tested for cannabinoid content and safety. HempMeds is partnered with Pro Verde Laboratories. The results of these tests are not posted on the product or on the website. They do have a phone number and email listed on the website, so it may be possible to request these in advance of a purchase.
