Charlottes Web Hemp CBD Review

August 19, 2018

Better known as Charlotte’s Web, Charlotte’s Web Hemp is one of the world’s best-known hemp brands thanks to its life-changing impact on Charlotte Figi. The young girl suffered from Dravet Syndrome and had hundreds of seizures a week.

She was given CBD hemp oil, and it almost immediately reduced her seizures. Within a short period, she only had a couple of seizures per month. The oil came from a Colorado-grown plant which was renamed Charlotte’s Web in her honor.

Who Are Charlotte’s Web Hemp?

The Stanley Brothers founded Charlotte’s Web Hemp. After footage emerged of Charlotte’s recovery (plus countless other videos showing the positive impact of hemp on seizures), the brothers (there are seven of them) began their mission to ensure hundreds of pediatric epilepsy patients received their medicine. When federal legislation changed in 2014, it was possible for the brothers to expand their enterprise outside of Colorado.

Today, Charlotte’s Web Hemp markets itself as the ‘World’s Most Trusted Hemp Extract’ but is it the real deal or just the beneficiary of hype?

Review of Charlotte’s Web Everyday Hemp Oils

CW Everyday Hemp Oils

Charlotte’s Web Hemp’s Everyday Hemp Oils is unquestionably its ‘signature’ product, and you can choose between:

  • Everyday Hemp Oil ($39.99 for 30ml, $99.99 per 100ml)
  • Everyday Plus Hemp Oil ($74.99 per 30ml, $188.99 per 100ml)
  • Everyday Advanced Hemp Oil ($149.99 per 30ml, $274.99 per 100ml)

The ‘basic’ Everyday range contains 10mg of hemp extract per 1ml serving, and all versions come in Olive Oil or Mint Chocolate flavor. There are 30ml and 100ml bottles. Everyday Plus is more than double the strength of the basic version, and you get 25mg of hemp extract per 1ml. Everyday Advanced is up to 8 times stronger than the basic version and offers 50mg of hemp extract per 1ml.

How to Consume Charlotte’s Web Hemp Everyday Oils

According to the company, you should take 1ml of the oil per day for the best results. Each bottle comes with a dropper; the 30ml bottle has a 0.5ml dropper while the 100ml bottle has a 1ml dropper. You can drop it under your tongue or add it to salad, coffee or any other food or drink.

Efficacy of Charlotte’s Web Hemp Everyday Oils

It’s clear that Charlotte’s Web Hemp is more than just hype as its website is laden with positive testimonials. What surprised us the most was the sheer range of the testimonials in terms of how Everyday Oils helped them.

For example, it helped people sleep better, reduce their pain, improve their mood, reduce anxiety, and reduce inflammation. Charlotte’s Web Hemp’s CBD oil was even described as ‘life-changing’ by some customers. What we found was that the oils worked extremely quickly. Although the Everyday Advanced Hemp Oil may seem expensive, it is significantly cheaper than prescription medication in the medium to long-term.

Review of Charlotte’s Web Simply Capsules

CW Simply Capsules

If you don’t like CBD oil but want to experience the health benefits of this natural supplement, why not try Charlotte’s Web’s Simply Hemp Capsule Range? There are two options:

  • Charlotte’s Web Simply Hemp Capsules ($34.99 for 30, $59.99 for 60)
  • Charlotte’s Web Simply Hemp + Extra Capsules: ($69.99 for 30, $119.99 for 60)

While the Simply Hemp capsules have 15mg of hemp extract per serving, the Hemp + Extra capsules have 35mg.

How to Take Charlotte’s Web Simply Capsules

All you have to do is take one capsule once or twice a day depending on what you need CBD for.

Efficacy of Charlotte’s Web Simply Capsules

Charlotte’s Web Hemp takes great pains to point out that its capsules are better than CBD because they also contain a variety of additional cannabinoids. To say that these capsules are popular would be an understatement. One customer suffered from back pain for years, but after just three months of Hemp+ Extra, his pain was completely gone.

The Simply Hemp capsules probably work best for anxiety, but the extra strong Hemp + Extra capsules appear to be ideal for chronic pain.

If you are in pain due to physical activity or need relief after a stressful day, Charlotte’s Web Hemp’s topical hemp oil gel pen is a convenient way to benefit from a CBD infusion. For $49.99, you receive 50 x 2mg of hemp extract applications.

How to Take the Charlotte’s Web Hemp Topical Hemp Oil Gel Pen

All you need to do is rub it on your preferred area. Sore shoulder after tennis? Rub it with the pen for rapid relief.

We liked the smell of the gel, and it is an effective way to ease muscular soreness after exercise. It is ideal for minor training injuries, but it isn’t designed for severe strains. It is best used by athletes because the capsules are a better ‘on the go’ option.

Where Can I Buy the Charlotte’s Web Hemp Range?

The popularity of Charlotte’s Web Hemp means you can purchase it from a surprising number of websites. For United States customers, your best bet is to stick with the Official Charlotte’s Web Hemp website. If you are a UK customer, there are several reputable sites including CBD Oils UK. It is also possible to locate Charlotte’s Web Hemp suppliers. 

Final Thoughts

After our experience with the range of Charlotte’s Web Hemp products, we are in no doubt that this company is the real deal. As well as helping people with the usual list of symptoms such as chronic pain, depression, and anxiety, Joel Stanley is adamant that his company’s products can do much more.

The world has already seen what CBD from the Charlotte’s Web strain can do for people suffering from seizures. Joel also believes that hemp is capable of preventing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia and is keen to stress that he intends to continue consuming hemp on a daily basis.

The Stanley Brothers are using their fame to spread the word about the medical benefits of hemp. Their foundation, The Realm of Caring, is dedicated to educating the public and legislators about the benefits of cannabinoids; we wish them luck.

    I learn more about CW Hemp every single day. I too recently started testing the mint chocolate extract and doing so has yielded pretty good results thus far. My uncle is using it as well and he’s convinced that this definitely helps with shoulder pain management. We plan on going for the Advanced version next time to see how much more effective it is. That said, good stuff thus far.

    I have been using the premium hemp extract (mint chocolate) for about 2 months and I have to tell you that it has been a godsend. I have literally begged and cried in doctors offices for pain relief. I have been really suffering with severe sciatica for 2 years and could get no help. I read up on cbd oil and thought why not try it. I bought a bottle to try and within just a few days I was pain free and not using a cane to walk anymore. Thank you so much for your wonderful oil.

    Wondering if this would show up negatively in a random test? My husband has knee joint chronic pain, he takes otc pain relief at 4 a day. He works in government and random testing is done.

    • Shouldn’t but then again anything is possible. Remember that CBD oils most of the time contain traces of THC. Again shouldn’t appear but no company can guarantee. That’s the truth

Getting Started with CBD Oil

If you suffer from anxiety (like me), depression or pain and are looking to get started with CBD oil, you need information on how to buy CBD oil, or you’re simply looking to learn more about CBD products, you’ve arrived at the right place.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, aka CBD, is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has significant medical benefits. CBD can be extracted from two different species of the Cannabis Sativa L plant, which include Cannabis and Hemp. Unlike its rival THC, CBD does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC.

One of the main advantages of CBD is its non-psychoactive affect making it a great option for people looking for relief from inflammation, anxiety, insomnia, seizures, spasms, and other conditions.
As I mentioned above the primary distinction between Hemp and CBD oil is the part of the plant they are derived from and what parts of the plant are used to create the oil. Hemp oil is typically made from pressing cannabis seeds to extract the fatty oil from within, while some that have mastered the CBD extraction process also use the flowers as they contain high percentages of CBD. CBD oil, on the other hand, is usually made from the flowers of cannabis plant through various extraction methods.

How Does CBD Affect Your Body?

The way marijuana affects your body varies from person to person as it will often depend on genetics, tolerance to the cannabinoids, medical health, DNA, and more. It also depends on the way you consume the CBD, for example, the effects of vaping CBD are far different to smoking it in the form of high-CBD cannabis strains. 

CBD and the way it affects us is still of somewhat a mystery to researchers they still try to figure out how it effects the EndoCannabinoid system. During the previous century, it was discovered that our bodies have receptors within the brain and central nervous system. Specific cannabinoids such as CBD bind to those receptors and activate the EndoCannabinoid System (ECS). This then provides a wide range of psychological and physical benefits helping the body.

Without going into specifics, cannabinoids signal to the body to create endocannabinoids and build more receptors. This helps the body to limit things associated with pain and inflammation, repairs cells and provides a wide range of other health benefits. Unlike other cannabinoids, CBD is thought to be the ultimate anti-inflammatory cannabinoid.

Medical Benefits of CBD

There is a misconception as to whether CBD can help treat patients, similar to pharmaceutical medicine, but thanks to the internet and a few different medical studies patients and researchers have been exposing their findings on how CBD oil is helping to cure a wide range of medical conditions.

The most popular story was the one of Charlotte Figi. At the time Charlotte was only 6 years old. As a little girl, she was experiencing over 300 epileptic seizures per week until she was successfully treated by a CBD-rich strain oil, later named Charlotte’s Web.

The high-quality CBD oil, changed her life, helping her to overcome a 6-year battle. Since her story hit the news, CBD and other cannabinoids of the cannabis plant are constantly being researched to understand how they can help to treat different medical conditions. As a matter of fact, CBD has been thought to help treat over 170 medical conditions, among them severe conditions such as Anorexia, Cancer, Arthritis, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Glaucoma, multiple sclerosis and PTSD.

Recent studies have even shown that CBD, may cure life-threatening diseases by altering genes. Other studies have proven that it might even be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis and chronic pain.

The way that CBD works is that it interacts with receptors located in different parts of the central nervous system. These receptors are called CB1 and CB2. Both reflect the areas of the brain they interact with such as the limbic system. When taking CBD, this cannabinoid locks in on these receptors and affects the body in different ways. For example, it can help to block the pain caused by specific medical conditions.

While numerous studies have shown promising results, it is important to understand that CBD research is still at premature stages. A 2011 study that researched CBD for fibromyalgia showed extremely promising results. 56 of 112 participants who took CBD in the form of oil saw a great reduction in their symptoms and pain, while those using traditional methods didn’t see hardly any improvement.

Can you Buy CBD if you live in an illegal state?

The process is not cut-&-dry, and but thanks to the Farm Bill of 2014, forms of CBD can now be delivered to your doorstep. Those that live in recreational states can purchase CBD cannabis oil which is high in potency and extremely effective for helping to treat severe medical conditions, while those that live in other states that are not medical or recreational can benefit from CBD hemp oil. CBD Hemp oil is perfect for helping to treat a wide range of conditions including anxiety, depression and acute pain.
