By now, it has become abundantly clear that the cannabidiol (CBD) market is the next big thing in health supplements. A recent CNN article highlighted the expansion of hemp farms across the United States. Companies that once grew squash, pumpkins, and kale have switched their focus to growing hemp after the Farm Bill of 2018 made it legal.
With so many hemp farmers come a barrage of CBD sellers; some of whom are more reputable than others. At Marijuana Break, we continue to review as many CBD companies as we can find to educate, and warn, readers as necessary. Today, it is the turn of LV Well CBD to go under the microscope.
Who is LV Well CBD?
LV Well follows the sadly tried and trusted CBD seller route of not revealing a great deal about the company. It says it sells full-spectrum CBD products you can use sublingually or via the use of a vaporizer. It claims that its CBD comes from hemp cultivated in the European Union and the cannabinoids are extracted via supercritical CO2 methods.
LV Well also says its CBD oil is winterized. The process of winterization involves an alcohol wash of the plant. It extracts the terpenes and cannabinoids from each other which results in a pure and concentrated form of CBD. It also helps separate the pure cannabidiol from residual plant products such as fats, waxes, and chlorophyll.
The brand has a Facebook page with a few hundred likes, and in January 2019, LV Well’s products were available to view at an Expo in the city of Birmingham, the second biggest city in the UK by population. One major plus with LV Well is that all of its products come with third-party lab reports.
The company states that the founders are experienced CBD users and understand that certain types of cannabidiol products work better than others. Its range of products was first unveiled in London at Vape Jam in 2018, and this exposure has helped build the brand.
Review of LV Well CBD Oral Winterization
LV Well actually sells three distinct types of CBD oil for oral consumption. Its Raw option is an improved version of the brand’s extract paste which is dissolved in carrier fluid. LV Well claims to have improved the quality of its extract by using virgin hemp oil instead of PG and VG. Its Raw oral CBD oil is available in four sizes and comes in Cookies flavor:
- 500mg: £8
- 1000mg: £12.50
- 2000mg: £18.50
- 3000mg: £25
Its Max option is a full-spectrum extract with several cannabinoids aside from CBD. It is available in sweet mocha flavor only, and you have five sizes to choose from:
- 600mg of Full-Spectrum Extract & 300mg CBD: £20
- 1000mg of Full-Spectrum & 500mg CBD: £30
- 2000mg of Full-Spectrum & 1000mg of CBD: £45
- 4000mg of Full-Spectrum & 2000mg of CBD: £85
- 6000mg of Full-Spectrum & 3000mg of CBD: £110
I tried the Winterization option. LV Well winterizes raw paste and dissolves it in alcohol and subzero temperatures to ensure the solids are separated from the liquids. The result is a much darker oil that I am used to seeing. It comes in Mocha flavor in five sizes:
- 500mg: £10
- 1000mg: £15.50
- 2000mg: £23
- 3000mg: £31
- 5000mg: £43.50
The mocha taste was okay, and I used the 1000mg bottle. It did a reasonable job on the pain in my shoulder; to the extent that I felt less pain after weight training sessions and was able to push the intensity a bit.
What really astonished me was the price. You can normally expect to pay £50 or thereabouts per 1000mg of CBD in the UK; so, LV Well’s prices are insane. If you get the largest winterized option, you pay less than £9 per 1000mg for CBD that seems to do a good job on pain and stress.
Review of LV Well’s Other Products
LV Well sells a CBD liquid suitable for vaporizers. It is also winterized but has a lighter color than the oil equivalent. This is because the solids have been washed out to make it more suitable for vaping. You can purchase 500mg for £10 or 1000mg for £15.50, and the liquid is unflavored.
If you are looking for something different, you can try the brand’s CBD massage oil. Each 100ml bottle contains 300mg of winterized cannabis oil and costs £18.50. According to the instructions, you can use it as part of a massage session up to three times a week. It is advisable to keep the oil at room temperature before you use it and wait 30 minutes for it to absorb into your joints.
The final product available from the LV Well range is a 30ml tub of Muscle Rub Balm which contains 500mg of winterized cannabis oil for £18.50. You can use this to ease inflammation daily. It should begin to take effect within a few minutes of use.
Where Can I Purchase LV Well CBD Products?
One of the strange things about LV Well is that you don’t buy anything from its official website. Instead, you are redirected to a site called UK Vape Supply limited. As such, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that company instead.
UK Vape Supply says that all orders made before 2 pm on a working day will be shipped on the same day. Otherwise, they are dispatched on the following working day. Orders over £25 are eligible for Royal Mail Second Class Delivery, although you can pay extra for First Class.
All products purchased from the company can be returned within 30 days for a refund although you must pay for the cost of shipping.
Final Thoughts on LV Well
In the end, it is only fair to say that LV Well offers good-quality CBD products at an incredible price. Not many CBD sellers offer a choice between Raw, Winterized, and Full-Spectrum products. Its product range isn’t particularly big, but it caters to those who like using CBD oil, users that prefer vaporizing their cannabinoids, and individuals who need something topical for fast pain relief.
Although LV Well doesn’t have a particularly large following at present, it is likely to gather a head of steam as more people discover how reliable and low-cost this brand is.
