The fast growing CBD industry has resulted in a wide range of countless buzzy CBD brands cropping up over the last few years, and certainly not all of them are efficacious–any cannabis pro and cannabis site will tell you–not all hemp CBD products are created equal. Even among the top CBD brands, there’s variation in strength, quality, and additional ingredients. So the editors of Rogue carefully hand selected the best CBD brands on the market and after trying/researching over a hundred brands, we specially vetted the top and highest potency products for consumption.
Unless you’ve been tucked far under a rock over the last few years, odds are you’ve heard of an ingredient called CBD (short for cannabidiol) and its meteoric rise. CBD is taking over everything from beauty products to personal lubricants, vapes, and even booze. When isolated on its own, the CBD compound is not psychoactive and is widely known for its muscle relaxant properties, without getting you high. While CBD is non-psychoactive, it can create a general feeling of well-being and calmness, more akin to getting a good night’s rest or taking a relaxing bath as opposed to the giggle-ridden, couch locked variety brought on by THC. CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory that is also neuro-calming and effective in treating a number of ailments from seizures and insomnia, to anxiety and arthritis. Its therapeutic benefits are widespread and CBD is fast becoming the world’s most popular wellness alternative to medications.
