Hemp seed oil
Their oil is made using the leaves and the stem of the hemp plant and includes all of the cannabinoids that are present in the plant, giving users the entourage effect. The appearance of the liquid is a light golden brown, which is normal for full spectrum CBD.
Their product tastes and smells like mint. I wouldn’t mind if the mint flavor was a little stronger, but overall it’s quite pleasant. If you don’t like the taste/smell of mint, they offer a plain, olive oil flavored tincture as well.
Nothing stands out about PureKana, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I would say the effects are like that of any other full spectrum CBD product. I was taking 1 ml worth of PureKana on a daily basis, which is about 28 mg of CBD. For me, PureKana relaxed my entire body and at the time, took away the pain that was in my neck.
In my opinion, PureKana is ideal for:
The full effects take about two hours to kick in and last up to four hours. It relaxes your entire body to the point where you feel like you’re melting if you’re laying down. It feels incredible. Additionally, it makes your eyes feel heavy, making it an ideal sleep aid.
On top of the physical effects it also helps quiet the mind. So if you’re feeling anxious or stressed out, this product is the perfect remedy.
At 50 mg, you’ll be feeling chilled out. However, in higher doses of 100 mg or more, the effects are nearly identical to products with THC. This is because it’s full-spectrum and has 100+ other cannabinoids other than CBD in it. As a result, when all of these cannabinoids are working together in your body they create the entourage effect.
Additional PureKana CBD tincture benefits include an overall sense of well-being, reduction in stress and anxiety, and relaxation throughout the entire body.
As with every CBD product, there is no standard dose and some experimentation required to determine the best dose for you. Generally, I recommend starting with 25-50 mg and adjusting from there. The effects can take up to 3 hours to kick in, so please keep that in mind
The PureKana CBD tincture marks their dropper so you know exactly what dosage you are getting. It’s very important to shake the bottle of CBD prior to taking it to evenly disperse the compounds in the oil.
Their lower concentration CBD oil is ideal for new users who have never tried CBD before, while their stronger concentrations are for more advanced users and stronger CBD doses.
I feel that price is PureKanas biggest weakness. They offer a great product, but it’s expensive. Their 1,000 mg tincture runs $139, which come out to about $.14 per mg. I consider $.10 to be the average price per mg.
PureKana’s products are all third-party tested. They test for cannabinoid profile, terpene profile, mycotoxins, residual solvents, heavy metals, and other harmful contaminants. You can access their third-party lab results here if you’d like to see them before buying.
After reviewing the lab results there were no red flags. Thus, you can have some peace of mind knowing PureKana offers a safe and clean product.
You can order PureKana online and in select stores.
I had a very positive experience using their website though. It is well designed and very easy to use.
Since their products contain less than .3% THC, they ship to all 50 states. Unfortunately, they do not ship outside of the United States.
Orders are usually processed within a couple of days. As a result, packages will arrive within seven days depending on the time of year. PureKana packaging is top-notch. Their products are well sealed and tamper proof.
Absolutely! While they are a bit pricey, their product is top-notch. Their tincture was the first CBD product that actually worked for me and changed my opinion about CBD.
Simply squirt your preferred dose under your tongue and hold it there for a minute. The CBD is able to enter the bloodstream via the salivary glands and varicose veins under the tongue. Then swallow the CBD and within a couple hours the effects will start to kick in.
In this PureKana lab report for their 1,000 mg tincture, you can see there’s just a little over 1 mg of THC per serving: https://purekana.com/coa/llc-1000mg-mint-tincture/
In short, YES! If taken in a large enough dose, PureKana’s full-spectrum CBD oil can get you high.
Unlike THC, CBD by itself does not make a person feel “high” or intoxicated. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body. However, if you take a large dose of a full-spectrum CBD product like PureKana, the effects can be indistinguishable from being high. Most PureKana CBD oil reviews will say otherwise, but it’s just not true.
There are still many cannabinoids in the cannabis plant that have yet to be studied, and the “high” you get from cannabis may not just be from THC.
While PureKana CBD oil comes from the hemp plant and is federally legal, it is a full-spectrum product. This means that it contains 100+ cannabinoids, including a small amount of THC (less than .3%). So it’s quite possible you may fail a drug test if you take PureKana.
If you are subject to drug testing, whether at work or for a sport, you should be cautious with all CBD products.
Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made some hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3 percent THC federally legal. However, CBD products containing more than 0.3 percent THC still fall under the legal definition of marijuana, making them federally illegal but legal under some state laws. Be sure to check state laws, especially when traveling.
I’ve had multiple experiences with PureKana. In my personal experiences with them, I have never had a single issue. So I would say that yes, they are a reputable company.
No, PureKana does not have an Amazon store. The best way to order their products is through their website.
Overall I was very pleased with PureKana. They offer a solid product that is effective and does what it’s supposed to do. However, it is very expensive. I think there are other products out there that are just as good as PureKana but won’t cost you an arm and a leg. If the price isn’t an issue for you though, definitely check them out!
