While we can’t necessarily substantiate that claim, the blend is indeed a superpower combo featuring black pepper oil, clove, jujube, rosemary, and hops extract. It’s pumped with beneficial terpenes, antioxidants, and fatty acids, and the health benefits of black pepper oil alone will knock your socks off. We’re granting HempLand USA the Innovation Badge for this awesome addition we’ve yet to see in the space.
The last product in the HempLand USA CBD catalog deserves an A+: full spectrum CBD oil tinctures with ECS5™, their proprietary blend of CO2 extracted plant oils. The company claims this blend of oils essentially supercharges CBD oil by powerfully effecting the endocannabinoid system (ECS) on its own.
The HempLand USA CBD product line boasts focus and quality ingredients, something we’d much rather see versus brands that try to do it all whilst cutting corners. They call their proprietary full spectrum blend of cannabidiol and hemp seed oil Cannabitol®. HempLand USA’s Cannabitol® tinctures are offered in both full spectrum and THC-free varieties from $60 to $150.
The Cannabitol® softgels are expensive at $100 for a 30 count, and a tincture for pets will cost you about $60. Their two CBD topicals, a therapeutic cream and a restorative cream, are offered at $60 and $80, respectively. The two contain mostly clean ingredients; the only synthetic we found in both is phenoxyethanol. Overall, we’d give these topicals a B+.
The HempLand USA angle is ‘made in the USA.’ They go as far as to state that they believe “…made in America should be the quality standard by which all others are judged.” Indeed, their industrial hemp grows here, and they manufacture their CBD oil here as well in a state-of-the-art GMP facility. HempLand USA claims to have a team of expert growers and scientists, but that’s pretty much all we know about the people behind the brand.
If you’re looking for a patriotic CBD vendor, take a glance at HempLand USA: they’re all about keeping things American. They promise homegrown health by sourcing and manufacturing their entire CBD line domestically. A peek at their product line, and we’re impressed — high-quality, CO2-extracted cannabidiol and a surprise proprietary ingredient we’ve never seen before. We love the homegrown shtick; in this case, it’s genuine and there’s nothing wrong with it. A couple more contaminants tests are all that’s stopping this excellent brand from a five-badge rating.
HempLand USA comes ridiculously close to receiving the Safety Badge. Each SKU has a cannabinoid profile and independent test results for pesticides and microbiologicals. Unfortunately, they’ll need to run contaminants tests for residual solvents and heavy metals (at least for their batches of cannabidiol) as well to be considered for the Safety Badge.
Bottom Line – We love how HempLand USA keeps it domestic. They also keep things innovative and charitable, so there’s a lot to love here. Just a couple more contaminants tests run on their CBD oil, and we’ll be looking at a five-badge vendor.
Hempland USA uses a standard dropper for their oil delivery method. Our repeat readers know that we are not wild about droppers, but we recognize that it is pretty standard, and our score here reflects that. The dropper is imprinted with volume markings to help in gauging the desired dose, which we like to see, and this bumped the score a bit. The oil itself is a slightly dark amber, smooth but strong, as you might expect from a 2000 mg oil.
Upon first reading the Hempland USA site, we were struck by some very positive features that jumped out at us. The company has been in business since 2014, which makes it an early and long-lasting entrant in the CBD marketplace. The founder had already spent many years in the supplement business, and he recognized the CBD potential early. The company prominently displays lab test results, both through a page on the site and by QR code on the bottle. They also tout their ECS5 TM , a blend of 5 botanicals (clove, black pepper, rosemary, hops, and jujube). Hempland USA claims that ECS5 TM interacts more effectively with the E ndo C annabinoid S ystem that we all have, and which helps to regulate many of the body’s functions. We were intrigued.
Delivery (8.2 out of 10)
At 2000 mg, this oil lands in the high range of most CBD products we see. Perhaps it’s the strength, or perhaps it’s the ECS5 TM , but we noticed the effect of this oil quickly. We felt a lightness of mood and a physical well-being. We’ll make an assumption here and state that we think they have a winning combo in their ECS5 TM blend. Whatever it is, we felt the calming effect, sound sleep, and good mood that we want from a quality CBD product.
This oil reminded us of our recent review of Irwin Naturals’ unflavored oil. As we said in that review: “Our review team had mixed reactions to the taste of this oil, but in the end we agreed that it’s a relatively pleasant tasting oil”. We appreciate Hempland USA embracing the natural flavor (read: grassy) of hemp and not trying to mask it too much. They do add a bit of peppermint oil, which perks up the strong flavor of the hemp, pepper, etc. If you like the natural taste of hemp, you’ll find this to be a good choice.
Hempland USA Full Spectrum Cannabitol 2000mg CBD Oil
At 2000mg per 30ml, this product delivers a powerful punch. A full dropper (about 1 ml) will deliver 66.7 mg of the CBD with ECS5 TM . That’s a high dosage for a lot of us, perhaps more than most people need unless they are dealing with a severe ailment. What this means is that most of us can use less than a full dropper, and the 2000 mg in this bottle will last for a long time. (If you think or know that a lesser dosage is OK for your needs, you can use our How to Use CBD infographic to help you find the right dosage for you).
At the time of this review, the 2000 mg Cannabitol ECS5 TM oil is priced at $149.95. This puts it at a very reasonable 7.5 cents per milligram of CBD. We normally expect a range of 5 to 15 cents per milligram, and the quality and effectiveness of this oil at 7.5 cents makes it a super value that we would not hesitate to recommend. Hempland USA offers volume discounts (10% off when you buy 2, 20% for 4, 30% for 6) so the value can get even better, That’s hard to beat.
Additional ingredients :
The cannabis plant contains over 100 different cannabinoids. While research is in its very early stages, evidence is growing that these cannabinoids may also have significant health benefits. The terpenes found in cannabis give it its distinctive aroma– and have health benefits on their own! Full spectrum products are closer to the original plant and may offer additional health benefits.
CBD can be combined with a variety of supplements to support various health goals. For example, CBD can be combined with melatonin, the sleep hormone, to help sleep. Some companies add other herbs or other natural products to support the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD while others may add nutrients to support calm, energy or exercise recovery.
