PureKana CBD Review

Our Rating: B.  3rd party labs on the website is a year old.  We cannot verify the potency of products without up to date labs.

purekana has a mature website.  They realize that you cannot market CBD as a medicine, unlike less mature companies bound to get themselves in hot water with the FDA.  They rave that they have the sheer customer volume and confidence to give credibility that their products are effective to any diffident buyers.  We have not found bad social media reviews; however, one might need to reserve judgment on this particular company until you can get up to date 3rd party labs.  That is always a sticking point.

purekana CBD and terpenes dosage cannot be easily verified due to lack of batch information on the website.  They give only labs from a one-year-old batch of hemp oil on the website for verification and this is inadequate.

This is where things get murky, this is the only lab we could get from the site and it is more than a year and a half old.  That doesn’t bode well.  If you can get more up to date labs, you can check the batch info and make sure the batch you have is of acceptable potency.  If so, then purekana might be a good bet for you.

Q&A about purekana CBD

Q: What is CBD?
A: CBD is cannabidiol, it makes up 40% of the industrial hemp plant.  It was first researched as a treatment for childhood seizures then found to have several non-medical uses geared toward easing pain and discomfort.
Q: How does purekana grow its industrial hemp?
A: purekana grows its industrial hemp using organic growing methods in the state of Kentucky.  This means they do not use harsh chemicals or pesticides.  They do not use genetic engineering to alter their plants.
Q: How does purekana manufacture its CBD oil?
A: purekana uses CO2 extraction with no solvent.  Therefore, nothing foreign to biological organisms touches their products.  CO2 is common in the atmosphere and safe to breathe at normal concentrations.
Q: What’s the difference between industrial hemp and marijuana?
A: Industrial hemp has less than 0.3 % THC while marijuana has a lot of THC and can cause a psychoactive effect.  Industrial hemp has no psychoactive effect but has large amounts of CBD which can have therapeutic effects.
Q: Is it legal?

A: Store it in a dark, cool place.  Keep it out of sunlight.  If you do that, it’ll last one year.

A: CBD oil only contains trace amounts of CBD; however, it is still possible that using CBD could cause you to get a false-positive result for THC.  No CBD product can promise you that you will not fail a drug test for THC if you use the product.  The likelihood, however, is probably quite low.

Q: What if I want a refund?
A: Request a refund within 30 days.  You must return the product and pay shipping.
Q: How long till I get my order?

Conclusion on purekana hemp oil

Grade:  B-

Customers appear to have nothing but good things to say about purekana products.  Also, they have a good website.  The downside is that their lab report is out of date by about 1.5 years.  If you can get up to date batch information, this might be a good company to go with.  Else, stick with companies that publish all batch data in real-time, Koi CBD is an example.  They use a company called CannaSafe that automatically publishes the results of every batch that goes to market.  You can always check the Cannasafe site to see if your batch passes quality control tests when a company uses its services.  purekana does not appear to have invested in any such technologies.  When it comes to whether the product will work or not, having the 3rd party labs is the most important thing, because it’s easy to pass off a sub-par product as the real deal, as batches often come out not of the expected potency.
