Lush Valley CBD Review By Stacie Fortson

In my search for quality CBD manufacturers, I came across Lush Valley CBD. I only represent companies with quality CBD products that are third party tested. Lush Valley fell right into that very criteria.

When it comes to their products, they are very translucent. By this I mean, they tell where their plants come from, how they are grown, treated, and processed. You can view the entire process on their website. They offer videos to educate and reassure that they are creating a quality product.

The videos, in my opinion, also let you get to know your CBD manufacturer a little better. I know that I am more at ease buying products from a person I feel that I know, versus a total stranger.

Products Offered by Lush Valley CBD

Lush Valley CBD can be purchased in tincture (oil 1000 or 500mg), body butter (4oz. or 8 oz.), and pet spray. I think that keeping the product line simple like this, makes it easier for Lush Valley to concentrate on quality versus quanity.

Also, with fewer choices, it makes for easier decision making. Not saying that choices are bad, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming if there are too many, simplicity is good.

The tincture ingredients are also very simple, it contains full spectrum hemp extract and MTC oil, and is a NON-GMO hemp oil, is pesticide free, and lab tested < .3% THC (by an independent third party lab).

Third Party testing is unbiased, the results can be trusted to be accurate. These tests will also show the strength and safety of the products.

What Is The Big Deal About Being Organic?

Well, hemp is highly sensitive to it's environment which is why it belongs in the category of “Bioaccumulator”. To break it down, this means that the plant absorbs both the good and bad elements from the water, air and soil.

Growing hemp organically and naturally helps to guarantee that there are no pesticides, toxic metals or other dangerous hidden ingredients to come through in the CBD Products.

Organic growing is the safest and best way to grow most every product used by consumers. Any company that grows organic and uses organic ingredients is showing respect and care for their consumers, and environment.

What Can CBD Do For You?

Well that question is one for you to answer. I can tell you what CBD does for me, and you can read about what it does for others. As far as what it will do for you, that is your personal journey.

For me CBD has decreased my pain level due to arthritis and pinched nerves. It has increased my focus in general, and my patients to deal with the little things that normally aggrivate me.

I have never had sleeping issues, but I have read that it has helped others with sleeping as well. There are so many reviews on what CBD has done for people.

Keep in mind however, there are no scientific facts to back up any of the claims. There are studies being done, but not significant findings as of yet, aside from CBD does help with certain types of epilepsy.

There are some companies that are getting in trouble for making medical claims related to CBD, Lush Valley is not one. They do not make any claims that CBD is a medicine nor that it will cure any diseases or disorders.

They simply state that CBD reacts to CB receptors that are in our bodies. These receptors are the reason CBD, THC, and other cannabidiols work for us and our animals.

Without CB receptors in the body, hemp and marijuana would behave as mere herbs, like basil or oregano when consumed. But we have these receptors, and I say we have them for a reason, our bodies are designed to use cannabidiols.

However, as I stated earlier, what CBD will do for you is your own journey. No one can tell you how it will work for you, or if you will like it, that is all on you alone.

If you are wanting to try CBD, Lush Valley CBD is one of my recommendations for sure. You can click on any of the links in this review to buy yours today. And While you're there, I encourage you to visit their FAQ's and videos on their "about us" page. I found all the information very helpful.

As always, thank you for visiting my site and reading my review on Lush Valley CBD. Please feel free to leave a comment below on your thoughts and experiences with Lush Valley CBD or just CBD in general.

CBD Oil And Third Party Testing: What Does It Really Mean

test

With the recent spike in CBD Oil manufacturers, one has to wonder about the quality of the oil they are buying. If you have been shopping for CBD lately you will notice lot of companies offering a Third Party Test result to prove the quality of their CBD products.

Well, what exactly is a “third party test”, and who preforms them? Are they required, as one would think? Just how accurate are they? Who regulates all of this in the first place?

Having the third party test results is supposed to make you feel secure, according to the manufacturer. But if you don’t know what one is, how to read it, or what it is supposed to contain in the first place, the report will do you no good.

These are some of the many questions that I think we as consumers, need answers to!

What Is Third Party Testing?

When it comes to CBD and other drugs, third party testing is done in a laboratory by certified scientist. They break down the components of the cannabis oil to find how much of each cannabinoid is in the oil being tested.

With the laws varying so much between states, this is a very important report!

The best third party test to see as a consumer is an independent third party test result. This means that the laboratory is not in connection with the manufacturer or the consumer, so they have a completely bias report. In other words, the outcome of the results will not benefit the laboratory in any way, so there is no reason to favor either side.

Is Third Party Testing Required And Who Preforms Them?

There is no testing required for any CBD products. This I found hard to believe! But it is true.

There are several labs manufacturers can choose from to preform their CBD level test. Independent labs are reputable, and are more likely to give the biased opinion you, the consumer, are looking for.

EVIO Labs is one of the many labs used by Diamond, as is ProVerde, and Reseach Triangle Park Laboratories, Inc. These three laboratories are the top in the nation.

EVIO Labs is the leading national provider of accredited testing. This is one very professional and busy laboratory, working with both the agricultural and biomedical industries.

ProVerde, is probably EVIO’s biggest competitor right now in the cannabis testing field. They both offer quality test and results, and both have outstanding scientists on their staffs.

Research Triangle Park Laboratories, Inc. test for all sorts of things, like pesticides, contamination, toxic chemicals VOCs; banned substances, and product purity.

Are Third Party Test Results Accurate, Who Regulates This?

The FDA recommends that consumers be cautious of whom they buy their CBD products from, as they are not regulated by the FDA. Some of the companies out there are not being forth coming about the actual CBD contents of their oils. While there is no real regulation of these oils the FDA has been stepping in and randomly testing products.

The FDA has found some companies that are not completely honest about their CBD levels. They have sent these companies warning letters, to let them know they are not in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. They give them 15 business days to improve their product, or to give a time line in which their product will be improved, otherwise, the FDA shuts them down with possible fines.

So, while there is no official regulation, we do at least have the FDA stepping in and randomly checking these companies out for honesty. We as consumers need this, after all, this is a supplement claiming to support some major health benefits, and it is not completely cheap.

Companies With Independent Third Party Tested Products

Doing the leg work is what I am here for, I have been looking for trusted CBD companies to promote on my site and I definitely have been picking the right ones. So far every single company that I have done reviews for are independently third party tested. There was only one manufacturer that did not show the lab results, CBD Essence.

With CBD Essence, their lab report is not yet available to the public so I did not include their logo. They are third party tested, but I sure do like to see the certificate! I can research the lab to find out if it is independently owned, but only if I have the name.

Diamond CBD Link

Diamond CBD is one of the safe companies to order from. Some of their products have multiple test results from different labs. That goes above and beyond for quality assurance in my opinion. Diamond even provides a report from Toxicology Associates, Inc. to prove there is nothing to get you high in their products.

GGH LLC logo and link

GoGreen Hemp is also a safe company to buy from. They do not say Independent third party, but they are. Upon looking at their lab certification I noticed that Diamond used the same lab for some of their products, ProVerde .

Made By Hemp logo and link

Made By Hemp is yet another reputable CBD manufacturer. This manufacturer also used common labs for testing as Diamond and GoGreen Hemp.

All three readily display tab links to their lab results, this is a very important thing. Not only so you know that you are getting what you paid for, but also so you can prove what the contents are in your cannabis oil in case you’re in a not so cannabis friendly state.

CBD made from hemp is legal in all 50 states, marijuana is a totally different story though. And being able to prove that there is little to no THC is imperative for legal purposes.

Shopping For Quality CBD Made Easier With A Little Help

With so many choices of CBD manufacturers, it is hard enough to make a decision between them for prices, worrying about the quality of the product you are buying is just as important.

Make sure you have a third party test and preferably an independent one at that. After that it is all in what form you want to take your CBD in, and what fits in your budget the best.

I know the four companies I listed above will be very safe choices for quality and purity. Feel free to follow any of their links and check them all out. Pick which one is best for you and place an order today!

I hope my article helps you find the quality CBD products you’re looking for. Please feel free to leave a comment below. I would love to hear your opinion on third party testing CBD products.

As always, thank you for reading my article.

My Personal Favorites

There are a lot of great brands at the CBD MALL, I have a growing list of my favorites. Among them are the Diamond brand itself, MediPets, Lawrence Taylor Pain Master cream, and of course Chong’s Choice, you can’t go wrong with this CBD.

I personally think that the only way you wouldn’t be happy with Chong’s Choice brand of CBD, is if you just did not like the effects of CBD. This is one of the absolute best CBD’s I have tried.

MediPets has been my go to for my fur babies CBD requirements. I have two older Labradors and we all know they can have some hip issues. The poor dear creatures.

Well my yellow Lab, Rose, has the worst hips, but since I started her on MediPets 2 times a day she runs and plays ball with my fiance like she is a puppy again. She is almost 9 years old.

Speaking of my fiance, he is the reason I found LT Pain Master. He is very atheletic and gets very sore muscles, and needed intense relief. So I finally found and tried LT Pain Master, and now he swears by it, and will not use any other brand.

He actually had me try it on my knees one day when they were really sore, and I was very impressed with how well it worked for a topical.

My pain runs very deep, so I usually just go with oils or smoking of some sort. After trying LT Pain Master I use them in conjunction they and seemed to work better for me.

All of these products and more can be found a the new CBD MALL.

I can’t say what CBD will do for you, but I can say what it does for me. I feel a lot less pain these days, I am more focused and becoming even more creative as well. And when I use the creams and lotions, my skin feels smooth and refreshed.

Head on over to the CBD MALL today and find your favorite brand.

*Frequently Asked Questions*

What brand Of CBD oil is best for dogs?

I prefer MediPets for my fur babies. I did a lot of research on this before I would even buy CBD for my pets to make sure it was safe for them.

MediPets impressed me with their ingredients and choices for my fur babies, and my babies seem to really like it. They are a touch finiky when it comes to stuff like this, so I have to be a bit tricky and get them “snacks”. Don’t tell!!

As always, thank you for visiting my site and reading my article about the new CBD MALL sponsored by Diamond CBD. Please feel free to leave a comment below, I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Marijuana Bud Northern Lights

When people think about hemp oil and CBD they wonder if they are the same thing. The only thing they are similar in is genetics, they are from the same plant, just different parts. Aside from that, they are totally different. I will describe the differences and their uses.

Hemp seed oil is derived from the seeds only. Whereas the CDB oil is made from the actual flower and leaves of the plant.

The processing is different for extracting each oil, and so are the uses. They each have health benefits and come with warnings as well. Never use any supplement without researching and talking with your physician.

Hemp seed oil never contains CBD or THC as the cannabinoids do not reside in the seed, only the flower contains the cannabinoids.

The CBD oil does not contain high enough of the THC cannabinoid to cause alarm. Some companies are making it with absolutely no THC. You just have to read your labels and research the company you purchase from, if this is a concern you have.

How Hemp Seed Oil Is Made

Uncleaned Hemp Seeds

Hemp seed oil is made with cold compression. Before the seeds are ever compress they are washed extensively to remove any leaf matter, dirt, or other contaminants.

Then they do the pressing process, which is stretching the seeds and twisting like and twisting them like a cork screw action until all the oils come out.

During this process they don’t let the temperature get above 40 degrees. By the time fills into the first filter tank it has cooled more. In the end it is cooled to below 20 degrees and stored in an oxygen free environment. And that’s it, you have hemp seed oil.

This oil is rich in healthy plant fats and has a deep nutty flavor. If the press is cleaned and sterilized after each use the oil can also be considered virgin oil.

The Uses For Hemp Seed Oil

The uses for hemp seed oil are amazing! You can make some wonderful salad dressings and meal toppers with it. Body soaps, lotions, shampoos & conditioners, skin oils, and hair oils are all being made with this product. That’s not even close to be the end of the list.

Hemp seed oil can also be used to make paints, beauty products of all kinds, bio-fuel, and much more. The plant this oil derives from is just simply amazing with all that can be done with it.

The only things this oil should not be used for is frying or cooking above 160 degrees, stopping diarrhea, or raising blood pressure it will not be effective or helpful in these cases.

This oil contains a high amount of healthy plant fat that is very good for us, but we are not used to and it can give you tummy issues if you consume large amounts or on a regular basis. Everything comes with a warning label, hemp seed oil is not different.

How CDB Oil Is Made

CBD oil has a totally different type of extraction process. All the leaves and flowers are used in the making of this oil.

First they are soaked in a grain alcohol then strained a bunch, and you are left with a slurry of cannabinoids and grain alcohol. Then ethanol is used to extract the oil, I am not real sure how this process is achieved.

At the end of the extraction the CBD oil can then be combined with any other oil that you would like it in pretty much, although hemp oil, olive oil, and butter are the main ones used.

The Uses For CBD Oil

The uses for CBD are pretty much medical, although there are no scientific claims that are backing up the popular opinion as yet, they are researching every day.

Popular opinion says that some use it for arthritis pain and other chronic pain, anxiety may be able to be relieved with its use. CBD oil has been in the news as a possible treatment option for epilepsy as well. Just remember to talk to your doctor before you take any herb or supplement.

Research is being done on possible effects on Alzheimer’s disease, MS (multiple sclerosis), Parkinson’s disease, and strokes. This product has not yet been approved for cancer treatment, but researchers a working very hard on results.

Anti-acne is also on the list for researching as CBD may also reduce overall inflammation in your body which could help acne in the long run.

This oil you can cook with up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit, it can be infused with hemp seed oil, olive and vegetable oils. You can bake with it, add it to milkshakes you can add it to just about anything you don’t mind the flavor in.

There are some side effects that are listed with CBD they include: dizziness, depression, low blood pressure, hallucinations, and withdrawal symptoms such as irritability and insomnia. Some people say they don’t notice any side effects, but then there are the few that it just really does not agree with.

The Doctor

It’s Really All About What You’re Looking For

When it comes to which oil is best for you it’s really a matter of personal needs. It’s a choice for you to make after you have done your research, spoke with your physician, and came to your own educated decision.

If you are looking to flavor up some foods and have healthy skin and hair, you should shop for hemp seed oil and products that are made with it. And if you want to feel like you have helped the plant and environment you can because hemp is a green product and most items that contain it, are also organic or all natural.

Soaking Up The Days End

If you are looking for some health benefits you should try the CBD oil after you have talked with your doctor and made and informed decision. It could be the best thing you have tried since ginger root for health benefits.

Don’t just jump on the CBD band wagon because others are. At the end of the day, do what is right for you that is what counts the most.

I would love to hear your opinion on this article. Please feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank as always.
