How does Charlotte’s Web compare to HempWorx CBD Oil?
Many people are familiar with Charlotte’s Web after seeing Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s piece on CNN showing how little Charlotte Figi used to have about 300 seizures a week, drop to around only 3 to 4 per month taking their product.
While this introduced many people to the possibilities of the medical benefits of CBD oil, what about other companies out such as HempWorx who claim to be a higher quality?
Charlotte’s Web has the largest market share of CBD oil at 7%.
Charlotte’s Web owned by the Stanley Brother’s in Colorado became an overnight name after the CNN piece hit national TV.
HempWorx appears to be the fastest growing CBD company with the highest quality products available.
While most people haven’t heard of HempWorx yet, they will soon because of the rapid rate of growth the company is having. HempWorx is headquartered out of Las Vegas Nevada and has already seen growth of over 3000% in a just a few months.
But how do Charlotte’s Web and HempWorx compare side by side?
Charlotte’s Web – Hemp extract (aerial parts), MCT fractionated coconut oil, organic chocolate mint flavor oil (organic sunflower oil and natural flavors).
HempWorx – Phytocannabinoid hemp oil, PCR hemp (seed) oil, natural flavor.
Natural and Organic
Charlotte’s Web states on their website:
Although we are not organic certified, we practice as such in hopes of becoming organic certified in the future.
All pesticides, mildewcides, and herbicides used on our plants are 100% organic (Hemp is a fibrous plant that holds on to everything put on it so we are very careful of spraying harsh chemicals on the plants).
Author’s comments: What concerns me about Charlotte’s Web is they admit to using pesticides, mildewcides and herbicides.
They state that these are organic. Just because a chemical is organic doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Arsenic for example is organic, but can kill you. So don’t confuse organic when it comes to pesticides, mildewcides and herbicides as being healthy, because they are far from it.
They also say they are careful not to spray harsh chemicals on the plants. But anyone who knows anything about hemp plants, also knows that hemp plants are used in what is called phytoremediation to clean the soil of toxins from contaminated areas.
They state that hemps holds on to everything put on it. But they don’t state that it also holds onto everything put in the soil.
When it comes to CBD oil, you only want to go with organic certified grown hemp plants for this reason.
Otherwise you risk the chance of the hemp plant sucking up all the pesticides, mildewcides, herbicides and harsh chemicals into the plant which then would be concentrated into the hemp oil made from it.
This is a huge red flag to me not to use this product. Even though the CBD in the product may produce results. Why take the risk of having harmful ingredients in what you plan to ingest due to it not being grown certified organic?
HempWorx states on their website:
All Natural and Organic
HempWorx CBD products are made with certified organic hemp grown in Kentucky and are free of any synthetic or artificial ingredients. Our farms are 100% compliant and all of our products meet the “Federal Legal Limit” of 0.3% THC by dry weight.
Charlotte’s Web – Grown in Colorado.
HempWorx – Grown in Kentucky.
Charlotte’s Web – Was genetically modified by crossing different strains of marijuana with different strains of industrial hemp.
HempWorx – Uses industrial Non GMO hemp.
Charlotte’s Web – No information can be found on their website stating what percentage of CBD their product contains.
You must buy a bottle first and then email the company with your batch number for them to release this information to you.
I’m concerned as to the lack of transparency of the CBD% in the product.
While the company does state the mg of hemp oil extract, it means nothing without knowing the percentage of CBD contained in the product.
Many of their customer reviews mistakenly assumed the mg of hemp oil extract was the mg of CBD. This is not true.
HempWorx – Lists their third party independent lab testings which you can see by clicking on documentation on their website that runs between 2.26%, 1.97%, 2.27%, 2.23%, 2.28%, 2.29%, 2.24% and 1.99% in different batch tests.
Charlotte’s Web – $39.99, $74.99 and $149.99 per 30 ml bottle.
Author’s notes: While the bottles state the mg of hemp oil extract on them, it’s meaningless without knowing what percent of CBD is contained in the product.
HempWorx – $69 and $89 per 30 ml bottle of 500mg strength and 750mg strength.
In summary HempWorx has some major advantages over Charlotte’s Web. Here are the two main things.
HempWorx is organic and natural where Charlotte’s Web is not organic. Charlotte’s Web admits to using pesticides, mildewcides, herbicides and harsh chemicals.
HempWorx is transparent with third party lab testing where Charlotte’s web is not.
