CBD is growing at a fast pace and companies are popping up everywhere. At this rate, it’s hard to know which company is providing the most potent quality products.
This is why we decided to carry out a massive research, pick some among thousands that truly stand out and conduct an interview to learn more about these CBD Giants.
How did they manage to stand out from the rest? What do they all have in common that other companies don’t? All of that, and more, as we expose their secrets to becoming among the most trusted CBD brands today.
Q: Having focused on CBD genetics, what to you is the true good CBD? Is it based on how pure it is? What are your thoughts on this?
Q: You prefer harvesting the plants by hand. Would you rather make your own machine that does exactly, or close to, how you do it by hand, or would you rather stick with your method in the next 5-10 years?
Q: Craig Henderson started Extract Labs in his garage back in 2016. Being a Master’s of Engineering from the University of Louisville, what specifically pushed him to start a business revolving hemp?
Q: Is being a combat veteran a contributing factor as to why Extract Labs was established? How so?
We use a distillation process for our extraction methodology. The distillation process goes through two steps – Food Grade Ethanol Alcohol Extraction and a Fractionalized Distillation. This method cleans the oil of all waxes, lipids, and chlorophyll, while allowing us to maintain both high levels of phytocannabinoids and terpenes. We then bottle in a GMP certified facility.
Populum prides itself on the quality of our 500mg Full-Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil which is why we triple-test our extracts and formulations. Here’s our process for testing our products:
We third-party test our raw hemp extracts after we’ve sourced the ingredients.
We conduct an in-house test after the formulation of each batch.
We send the final product from each batch to a third-party lab to get a certificate of analysis. We include a copy of the latest third party lab results with every shipment. Customers can review their lab report before opening their bottle to know what cannabinoid & terpene concentration they’re taking, but also to ensure there are no toxins (mycotoxins, microbials, residual solvents, pesticides, heavy metals).
When developing our tinctures, we were also conscious of making the best tasting tincture, so that customers will look forward to taking CBD everyday. We've created a subtle flavor powered naturally by orange essence that is unique to the market.
All our products are backed by an industry-leading 100% guarantee. We offer a very transparent 30-day money-back risk free trial. Our customer service is second to none, backed by 650+ verified customer reviews with a 4.7/5.0 rating.
We are also focused on continuing to refine our current product line. In a few weeks, we plan to roll-out a new version of our Cold Therapy Hemp Rub that’s vegan. We’re excited that our new formulation will continue to make our topical one of the most effective on the market.
Q: Populum is focused on producing only full-spectrum CBD products. Do you plan to expand your product line by adding broad-spectrum and isolate CBD to accommodate more people in the future?
Q: You’ve created an award-winning flavor powered naturally by orange essence unique to the market. What, to you, should CBD oil taste like? Should it taste zesty, smooth?
Q: We haven’t seen any CBD products for pets, are we going to see one in the future? Soon, perhaps?
Q: All of your products are full-spectrum, is there any specific reason why?

We use hemp sourced from organic co-op farms in colorado for our oil-based products & our smokable hemp flower comes from carefully selected specialist greenhouse growers. All U.S based, fully licensed, organic grown & compliant to federal and state laws.
When we launched Absolute Nature, we were already eight months into research and development—checking sources and growing practices to make sure they met our strict standards.
We knew finding the right source was crucial for our success in providing a safe and dependable finished product. We did not rush these interviews and took our time verifying references and investigating practices. We partnered with farms capable of providing the volume for increased scaling and are on the cutting edge of technology. Our aligned farms are the foundation of our branding. Without a reliable and dependable foundation, all we build will crumble.
As for the processing of our oil-based products, we decided to outsource extraction & manufacturing to an iso9001, cGMP processor using ONLY c02 extraction. This decision gave us the ability to utilize hugely expensive processing equipment, producing the cleanest extractions possible, while allowing us to scale our operation without crippling costs, disruption to supply, as well as possible variations in our product quality.
As with our raw material suppliers, we had just as many interviews with processors, (if not more) visiting locations to check cleanliness, standards & procedures, and meet the people behind the scenes. You would be surprised by how many processors are not on their A-game. With a lack of standards, the claims made often did not match what we experienced. Through this, we found a group of processors that are doing the right thing the right way and use the guidelines that we set.
We built this company from a grain of sand. We do not pretend to be something we are not. We are passionate about Cannabis and will never settle for less than perfect. We only source the best materials available and use the most advanced technology we can get our hands-on to ensure our exacting standards get met at every step. Absolute Nature CBD was founded to change the industry, and be an example of how a cannabis company should be.
We believe the product quality speaks for itself. The main key benefits are that it's whole-plant, full-spectrum containing a leading cannabinoid profile. We have 10 cannabinoids in our profile, along with other beneficial compounds, essential fats, all blended with MCT oil, further enhancing the effects & absorption.
We are crazy about Nature. We have this insane idea that Nature is enough. There is no need for artificial flavorings, preservatives, or additives. We are purists here at Absolute Nature and demand our products remain so.
We are believers in full-spectrum; without a quality spectrum, you are missing out on the entourage effect; the proven synergistic effect of multiple cannabinoids working together. The entourage effect has been shown time and time again to offer higher levels of relief versus just using CBD by itself. With our profile and the use of MCT Coconut oil as the carrier, it is seriously the best tincture we are capable of producing right now.
We often hear from our customers that they love the taste too. Being a non-flavored CBD oil, many are surprised at the subtle cannabis taste with a slight sweetness, which comes from the MCT.
As with all of our products, our full panel 3rd party testing and published reports are undoubtedly a key factor for many consumers when purchasing our 100mg oil.
We refuse to cut corners or offer a lower quality product because it's cheaper to manufacture. It's not about the bottom line for us; it's about providing a product that works. Period.
Yes! We are currently developing a range of strain-specific products & varying cannabinoid focused products. Think, CBG, and CBN. These products will start with oils and expand out to other delivery methods. Also on our agenda is a range of non-cannabis-based, all-natural, plant-based products for various health applications & benefits. Absolute Nature will encompass everything natural & beneficial to health.
We do have one major project underway. Unfortunately, that's currently a secret.
All we can divulge is: the product revolves around matching strains to users/conditions. This is something not been seen in the market before. We believe, as far as we know, this is pioneering. Once this launches, we would LOVE to talk to you and your readers about this in more detail.
