Detailed description of the CannabiGold Balance oil
Before we go into more detail about the product itself, we wanted to talk about what CannabiGold is and who's behind it.
So...who is CannabiGold?
The CannabiGold CBD oil, also known as hemp extract, is produced by the Polish company 'HemPoland', the original owner of the CannabiGold brand.
HemPoland was the first company in Poland to acquire a licence to grow hemp plants and manufacture hemp products.
HemPoland presents as having a clear focus on the highest quality natural CBD. This is reflected in their slogan 'Pure quality, pure nature'. They take pride in the fact they do not use pesticides, plant protection products or artificial fertilisers
Only natural hemp is processed, which is free of any additives. In addition to this, only the Cannabis sativa L plant is used, which is an industrial hemp certified by the EU.
HemPoland guarantees that each CannabiGold oil contains the active ingredient CBD, which, in case of doubt, can also be confirmed by laboratory tests, if requested.
In 2018, CannabiGold was bought by Canadian cannabis producer 'The Green Organic Dutchman’. Although you wouldn't know this from viewing either the CannabiGold or the HemPoland websites.
The CannabiGold CBD oils are produced using supercritical CO2 extraction. The CannabiGold products contains the natural spectrum of the cannabis plant, but also many other natural substances, such as terpenes or flavonoids.
Which ingredients are contained in the CannabiGold Balance?
The 12ml CannabiGold Balance Oil contains a variety of phytocannabinoids. It is a full-spectrum oil that, in addition to CBD and CBDA, should also contain CBC, CBG, CBDV and BCP.
The THC content is below the permitted 0.2%. In addition to the active ingredients of the cannabis plant, valuable substances such as terpenes and flavonoids were also obtained during the extraction. It is worth noting here that the new CannabiGold Terpenes+ range claim to now contain zero THC. If this is a requirement for you, this may be an option.
As a result, the active ingredients can mutually reinforce each other and promote an entourage effect.
Having said that, some research does suggest that CBDA is actually more effective than CBD due to its relationship with the 5-HT receptors. It is suggested that the body is able to process CBDA more efficiently, thus not only allowing the cannabinoid to have a more significant effect, but to get into the body more quickly. The study in question looked at the reduction of nausea and vomiting in rats and shrews and found that the effects of CBDA were significantly greater at inhibiting vomiting than CBD.
It worth considering then, what it is you want from the product. And whether or not you require a higher concentration of CBD over another cannabinoid.
The CannabiGold Balance oil is delivered in this packaging
We found the packaging in which the CannabiGold Balance oil was delivered both interesting and aesthetically pleasing. This sets it apart from some of the other CBD oils that we have already tested.
The CannabiGold Balance CBD oil does not come in the classic bottle with an integrated pipette. Instead of a pipette, there is a pump cap.
It looks a bit nicer, but it's not overly practical for sublingual intake. Although online information describes it as 'handy' and 'innovative', we found the traditionally used dropper/pipette much easier to squeeze than the pump cap.
Where can you buy the CBD oil?
You cannot buy CannabiGold Balance oil on the manufacturer's website. And strangely, the website does not mention CannabiGold Balance or Intense.
The CannabiGold website has a focus on a CBD skincare range, which they do sell via their website. And in addition to this they also sell CannabiGold Terpenes+, they describe this as " a unique combination of top-quality gold hemp seed oil, pure CBD and a precise composition of terpenes selected by our scientists to facilitate the effects of CBD". They offer 4 options, 250mg, 500mg, 1000mg and 1500mg. This is said to have replaced the CannabiGold Classic, which is no longer in production.
If you want to buy the CannabiGold Balance CBD oil, you can only do so from stockists who are linked to the manufacturer's website. For example 'My CBD' or 'GoldCBD'. But it is also available on other platforms.
We also bought the CBD oil anonymously for our test via a third party. This was to ensure we recieved a genuine idea of the customer service offered.
If you have any questions, you have to contact the respective dealer, rather than CannabiGold itself. Therefore delivery costs and delivery times inevitably vary.
The rounded packaging does looks quite high-quality. On it you can find some details and information about the CBD oil from CannabiGold. We really liked the white and gold design. The box does make a rather noble and luxurious impression .
CBD oil from CannabiGold - our conclusion
Behind CannabiGold there is a company with a lot of experience who attaches great importance to expertise. Their passion for natural growing techniques is admirable and they do process the hemp plants themselves. Nevertheless, overall the CBD oil could not fully convince us.
This was primarily due to the taste and the value for money, but also due to non-existent customer service, given that the products are sold via stockists.
We really liked the entire branding and design of the bottle and packaging. But of course, this only plays a subordinate role when buying a CBD oil.
There has been noticeable differences in this company. On the surface it would appear that they have taken on board feedback in relation to the taste. There is potentially a new CannibiGold product which offers a milder taste. In addition to this, they now offer a skincare range.
We look forward to reviewing these products for you in the future and would welcome your thoughts if you have tried any of the CannabiGold products. You can get in touch at email@example.com
