Real Scientific Hemp Oil CBD (RSHO) is a CBD trademark with excellent performance. The company offers exclusive products. It was established to help people maintain a healthy body and fit mental status while carrying out their daily activities. Although its website has a lot of information that might make navigation difficult, it is helpful, especially to people who wish to understand the brand better. Its detailed information and operations show its commitment to ensuring high transparency levels.
Most importantly, all their production is vertically integrated to ensure quality is maintained at each step until the products are delivered to the customer. Unlike most companies that assess their products for purity and potency affirmation once, Real Scientific does it thrice. Although they are not specific on where they get their hemp from, they mention that they obtain them from European farms.
About the Company
Real Scientific Hemp Oil CBD was established in 2012 and was among the first companies to offer marijuana-based medical products. Although there were other brands before, it was the first company to offer the best CBD oil that took over the market. Since then, the company has strived to maintain or increase the quality of its products to attract more customers and offer better solutions. Although the company is not certified by USDA and BBB, they insist that its products are organic and non-GMO. Also, despite the company failing to offer more information about its history, they have listed its team members and their responsibilities. The “about us” page has also outlined the company’s annual achievements up to 2021.
The website contains the latest features, making it easy to navigate. Notably, various details have been given in separate links. Shopping on the website is also easy, and payments are made fast from the bank or credit card. You can click on the ‘Shop’ link to access their line of products; gummies, tinctures, and topicals. Although they only offer the three, they have diversified potency and flavors to address the wider market demand. Besides each product, they have offered the name of the products and the potency level. However, you can access more product descriptions by clicking on each product. You will find information like the elements used, the purpose of the product, extraction method, how to administer, and the recommended dose.
If a product suits your demands, add it to your shopping cart by clicking on the “Add to cart” link in orange. Adding and removing products to our shopping cart was straightforward. After approving payments, we received an email address bearing the number of products we had ordered, a tracking number, and the expected delivery date. Using the tracking number, we noticed that the products left their stores on the same day and were delivered the day after, discreetly packed. This was quite beyond our expectation since they stated delivery within 7-10 days. Notably, they offer free shipping on purchases exceeding $100.
The company advises the consumers to check the product’s condition upon arrival to ensure they are not damaged. In our case, the products were delivered safely. However, if otherwise, the company advises its customers to file exchange complaints within 48 hours. Also, since they have confidence in their products, they offer a full refund guarantee if the products are ineffective. The company’s full refund complaint should be directed to the support team within 30 days. However, they only accept unopened products in their original packaging.
Since the company cares about its reputation, it offers a review page for customers to leave feedback on their interaction with the company, its systems, the support team, and its products. Although the website lacks a FAQ page, they have offered multiple contact details to help customers seek clarification. You can reach them using phone call (+1 866-273-8502), email address ([email protected]), and physical address (632 N. 2000 W STE 105Lindon, UT 84042-1798 USA). They don’t offer message boxes and live chat. We reached out to its support team seeking clarification on how they monitor hemp quality since they don’t have their farm. One of their support team representatives replied to our email within 24 hours with a detailed and satisfactory explanation.
Although the company does not state where exactly they operate from and their hemp source, they have stated that all the manufacturing takes place within Europe with the aid of their parent company Dixie Botanicals. As a result, we were forced to refer to the information on Dixie Botanicals to understand their manufacturing process. According to the website’s information, they are authorized hemp plant growers and legal manufacturers of hemp-based products. A team of farmers established the company to offer unquestionable hemp-based products that address day-to-day health and wellness concerns. Since it is owned by a team of experienced farmers, the hemp quality is rich in naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes. However, finding information regarding the company is not easy since the company is not researchable, and the only way to access its information is through the parent companies.
The company uses the CO2 extraction method to obtain useful terpenes and cannabinoids from the hemp plant. The method is eco-friendly and effective compared to other methods such as ethanol. The company processes its products in isolate and full-spectrum formulation using organic CO2 hemp plant extracts, among other useful ingredients such as MCT oil. After extraction, filtration takes place. This is done using a heating method called one-touch that provides distinct oil.
According to the company, after the hemp has been harvested, purity levels are tested to ensure its organic. After extraction, the extracts are also tested to ensure no metals and heavy metals have penetrated the products. Lastly, the last lab tests are done for potency and purity levels after manufacturing. The company has mandated this responsibility to a reputable independent third-party lab for the tests. After the results have been obtained, the company posts them on their website.
Range of products
The company only manufactures tinctures, capsules, and topicals using C02 hemp plant extracts in two formulations; isolate and full spectrum.
Real Scientific Hemp Tinctures
This brand offers a satisfactory product description that makes customers understand the ingredients, potency level, administering, and function. They are formulated in isolate form using CO2 hemp plant extracts alongside MCT oils for easy absorption. They are effective since they are in liquid form. Notably, these tinctures are not discreet like other products. The company recommends 1ml drop placed under the tongue for about 60 seconds before swallowing. The drops can be included in foods or beverages. Although the company offers each serving in a 30 ml bottle, they are offered in various potency levels ranging from 300 mg to 4500 mg from $20 to $249. Each serving comes with accurate marked tinctures.
Real Scientific Oil Topicals
Topical products are formulated uniquely using CO2 hemp plant extracts alongside high levels of MCT oil for easy absorption and effectiveness into the skin. MCT oil is highly recommended in topical products since it’s a maximum carrier of bioavailability. However, the company only offers one topical product, CBD Hemp Salve in 50 mg at $49. It recommends it for topical use only.
Real Scientific Hemp Oil Capsules
Capsules have been considered the second-most effective method of administering CBD products. According to the product description, they are for oral use only and can be administered with pure water or any non-alcoholic beverage. The company offers two potency capsules, 750 mg, and 1500 mg, at different prices. Their price range is from $89 to $165. The company recommends a maximum dose of two capsules a day.
What We Like About the Company
Unlike most companies, it carries out triple lab testing; on its raw materials, after extraction and after formulation. Also, the company offers a 10% discount to first-time buyers and offers adequate product descriptions to make them understand the products better. In addition, it has proved to be a good ambassador of CBD since they offer an educational e-book, answering common concerns. Lastly, the company is committed to giving back to society by engaging in charitable activities such as education and collaborating with non-profitable institutions.
What We Don’t Like About the Company
Some products are highly-priced, making them unaffordable despite their high quality. Although our products were delivered the day after ordering, the shipping information offered states that some products are delivered 7-10 days. This may be longer and might inconvenience people who need the products urgently. Lastly, their free shipping cut-off of $100 is quite high, while most brands offer free shipping.
We highly recommend their products since they have been manufactured with recent innovations and by a team of experts. Also, the products are safe since purity and potency tests are done thrice before the product is released to the market. However, to gain a competitive advantage, it needs to address the disadvantages highlighted.
