With the cannabis market in South Africa growing at an exponential pace, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing more and more new faces and new businesses on the market. This is one of the predicted benefits of legalizing cannabis: a growth in job creation and local entrepreneurship opportunities.
However, this particular brand really grabbed our attention because they’re the first CBD / hemp oil in South Africa doing 3rd party lab testing. If you’ve read any of our other product reviews, you’ll notice a pattern of us listing 3rd party lab reports as one of the first and foremost indicators of quality in CBD Oil. We’ve still to see most international brands catch on to this, nevermind local ones, and it’s exciting to see CBD oil done properly, and responsibly, in a local environment.
AfricanPure also stocks CBD oils made for pets and children, but that’s a review for another day. For now, let’s dig into the benefits of CBD oil, as well as a review of this product in particular.
Benefits of the Pure CBD Oil South Africa has to Offer
As we all know by now, pure CBD oil has immense potential as a therapeutic and medicinal compound and is being used by thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, across the world to treat a long, long list of ailments and illnesses.
As AfricanPure reiterates on their website, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is an internal mechanism in our bodies which regulates things like the immune system, pain signaling, the musculoskeletal system and a number of other bodily functions.
The benefits of CBD are widespread and immense, treating many issues such as:
- Stress and anxiety
- Insomnia and sleep issues
- ADHD and ADD
- Muscle and another injury recovery
- Appetite Loss
Surprisingly, it’s also found to be quite similarly effective in most household pets like cats and dogs – although be warned, they require very different doses to humans so don’t just go ahead and give your pets a drop of CBD oil cause they’re nervous.
Now, let’s take a look at the specifics of the AfricanPure CBD Oil in the review.
CBD Oil South Africa: AfricanPure CBD Oil Review
AfricanPure’s CBD Oil is just that – a basic CBD Oil for everyday use. Whether you’re using it for sleep, anxiety, appetite loss or a myriad of other ailments, it’s safe and easy to use as a daily fix.
This 10ml bottle contains 1000mg of pure CBD extract, giving it a strength of 100 mg/ml. The maximum daily dose is 20mg (4 drops) per day, best taken as one drop, four times a day.
Africanpure’s CBD is made from organic, non-psychoactive hemp grown without the unnecessary use of GMOs or other adulterants, ensuring that it’s a safe and natural product you can trust. They use cold pressing and nutrient extraction methods which perform a full-spectrum extract (ie. the whole plant, not just the leaves, buds or seeds) and do so without solvents or heat. This, in relative terms, makes the Everyday CBD oil a product of extreme purity.
As we mentioned earlier, AfricanPure also uses 3rd party lab testing to ensure both that their CBD levels are up to standard, as well as that their products contain no intoxicating THC. While the standard for what constitutes hemp falls between 0.2-0.3% THC or lower, their latest test results show an astounding 0.064% THC content.
Their CBD isolate is bound with extra virgin olive oil to create an edible solution, and as such as vegan (for any of those who might be worried) and they recommend you store it in a cool place, out of direct sunlight. A fridge would be ideal.
All in all, this is a great quality CBD product, and we’re happy to see such attention to detail from a local producer. Keep an eye out for more reviews on their CBD oil for pets, which we’re sure will be on the way soon.
