In these Vendor Profiles we try to read through the marketese and help understand what makes each vendor unique. In all cases the vendors we choose to work with produce high quality products that are lab certified. Although the cannabinoid component CBD is the same chemical structure whether it be produced from hemp, cannabis, or a particular strain of either, the differences in effect lie in the formulation of CBDs with other cannabinoids, terpenes, and other nutrients. Often, when combined together, these other components have a synergistic effect on how our body processes and reacts to cannabinoids. And although each person is different, there are some commonalities that can be useful in determining which product to choose.
All vendors offer a unique product dependent on strain, process, and formulation. It’s possible for you to like Pharma CBD products while someone else prefers Elixinol. There’s differences in methods of administration and with effect depended on your bodies particular chemistry. We stand behind all our recommendations with a 100% Guarantee that each product will meet top quality and safety standards.

European Sourced Hemp
Pharma CBD’s hemp uses ultra-concentrated CBD hemp oil grown and harvested in select microclimates on generational farms in hemp-friendly European countries.
Hemp is grown on generational family farms, are non-GMO, and are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. The hemp oil that is produced by our special cultivars is different than the hemp seed oil you will find in your local grocery store. The way our hemp is grown makes it a very potent hemp oil with a much higher cannabidiol (CBD) content than most other strains.
Any product offered by Pharma CBD undergoes extensive third-party lab testing to ensure the utmost quality. Our products are completely non-synthetic to get you the most all-natural alternative to your normal everyday dietary supplements and personal care products. We put our every effort into making products that are legal, safe, and affordable. When you need to buy CBD hemp oil from a safe, trusted online provider, we are the customer’s preferred choice!

Full Traceability – From Seed to Shelf
Environmentally Friendly CO2 Extraction
Rather than using chemical or alchohol solvents to process our oils, Plus CBD Oil uses chemical-free CO2 extraction. A “cold” process extraction done at temperatures closest to its botanical material minimizes thermal degradation of the plant material and extracted oil. The CO2 extraction process is also very environmentally friendly, non-toxic and is generally regarded as safe from the FDA.
State of the Art in House Purity Testing
Plus CBD Oil has a lab in San Diego California where they analyze their hemp oils for cannabinoid content, contaminants, heavy metals, and solvents. The have a full time, first class team of scientists ensuring every batch of their product is of exceptional quality.
Third Party Lab Testing Results
Independent analysis ensures confidence that the products sold contain what is listed on the label and are free of adulteration. As results are updated very frequently, please let us know the results you need and we will provide it to you.
- Superior Sourcing
- Pharmaceutical-grade Testing
- Complete Traceability
- Innovative Products (like Liposomal CBD)
The Co-Founder of Elixinol, Paul Benhaim; has developed strong relationships with seed breeders and suppliers, growers, harvesters, cleaners, primary processors, manufacturers, laboratories and quality control personnel (in-house, contracted and third party) to source the highest-quality hemp from around the world for use in Elixinol products.
Elixinol gives customers and partners greater peace of mind by providing batch and lot numbers for each
product. They identify each batch of a product that they manufacture (GMP). This is essential in insuring consistent quality. They’ll provide full transparency to customers about what they are buying at any given point in time.
From Elixinol’s About page: “Before we ship from our manufacturing facility in Europe to the U.S., all of our products undergo rigorous testing. Then we use advanced HPLC (HPLC-DAD) equipment, in leading U.S. labs, to confirm the European results. Besides testing for potency, we also test for microbiological contamination, heavy metals, pesticides, and the unique terpene profile.
To establish the best labs for testing our products, we initially submit multiple samples of the same product, as well as “dummy” samples, to assure stability of the lab’s analysis methods and their ability to identify abnormalities in our products. This also allows us to be sure that they report any abnormalities to us immediately. Good communication and attention to detail is critical to the Elixinol process.
We employ these quality-control measures in every batch of Elixinol product we manufacture. There is never a question of what an individual is receiving when they make a purchase.”

Bluebird Botanicals’ Hemp Extracts are 100% natural with 0% synthetic cannabinoids added, and are grown without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.
Our hemp extracts are full-spectrum, CO2 oil extractions of an industrial hemp variety of Cannabis sativa.
Because the CO2 extraction used to make our oils yields a full spectrum extract, our hemp extracts contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids, including CBC, CBG, CBG-A, CBC-A, CBN and many others (and yes, our Hemp Classic product happens to naturally contain high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) because it’s made from a full spectrum hemp extract). In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our industrial hemp extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.
We’ve systematically sought out the most beautiful and healthy hemp cultivars for our raw ingredients used in manufacturing, and we always test for purity and potency. Hemp, because of it’s innate ability to thrive so easily doesn’t require pesticides (the aromatic terpene compounds in hemp can actually act as natural pesticides), fertilizers, or herbicides in it’s cultivation, and requires much less water than standard commercial farming. The hemp we use is grown under the same methods and standards of organic farming.
To determine the purity and potency of every batch of Hemp Extract each individual extraction is analyzed through a High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) system, a Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) system, and other methods to test for aerobic organisms, yeast, fungus, E. coli, pesticides, heavy toxic metals, cannabinoid potency, and terpenes. With these multiple analyses performed we can weigh the Hemp Extract for making our blends knowing that the cannabinoid rich oil is pure and consistent throughout every batch of Hemp Classic we make. Then, once our final Hemp products are prepared we have them further analyzed, once again, for their potency and purity, so our clients can know that every finished product we sell contains what we claim and is free from any potential contaminants.
