Sadly, we live in a country where cannabidiol and its products are not regulated. CBD is only regulated in the United Kingdom if it is being used in a medicinal product (presided over by the MHRA), but the food supplements we can take daily are not awarded this luxury.
As a result, it’s important to be aware of the different brands available and how good they actually are. Consumers need to know about which brands they can trust, and which ones are selling high quality CBD products. Here at Greenshoppers, we carry out in depth reviews of all the big brands so that you can feel comfortable knowing you’re making a great purchase.
Today, we’re putting Premium Jane under the microscope to see what they really stand for. If you’re thinking about purchasing any of Premium Jane’s products, read on to find out if they are worth it…
Who are Premium Jane?
Premium Jane are a CBD company based out of Los Angeles, California. As an American company, it may be hard to get your hands on Premium Jane CBD, but if you ever find yourself stateside then it might be worth buying a bottle.
Premium Jane invest readily in the hemp community, ensuring that all of their hemp is grown organically without fertilizers, pesticides, solvents, or heavy metals. Furthermore, all of their products are said to be non-GMO and vegan (although there is some confusion with the Topical CBD Ointment). Even the gummies! Anybody can enjoy these products without worrying about their health or morals.
Third-party lab reports are readily available for each product, as Premium Jane clearly believe that transparency is key. Checking for lab reports before buying CBD reports is essential, so it’s refreshing that Premium Jane have them so easily accessible.
To find out more about Premium Jane, you can visit the “About Us” section of their site and check out the FAQs. Furthermore, the website has a Blog that you can visit to find a treasure trove of information about hemp, cannabis, and CBD.
Premium Jane Products
Premium Jane has a great array of products with good diversity and strength. Below, we give a full run-down of all the products they currently have available.
Premium Jane CBD Oils
Premium Jane provides three flavours of CBD oil that are each available in three different strengths. As with all their products, the oils are vegan and non-GMO, sourced from organic hemp grown in Oregon. These oils contain less than 0.2% THC (making them legal by UK standards) but otherwise contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, allowing for the entourage effect to take place.
Premium Jane say that their oils are “unrivalled on the market when it comes to potency, flavour, effectiveness, safety, reliability and overall value.” We think that this statement is more or less true – this line of oils is definitely safe and reliable, as proven by the third-party lab reports. As for their effectiveness, all reviews are positive and promote a good image for the company; clients find that their needs are met very well. The flavours are also interesting, as most manufacturers don’t offer flavoured options. The options are Natural – which is described as a rooty, mildly bitter flavour – Mint, and Citrus.
As for the potency and value, each 30ml bottle is said to contain 40 servings. There are three different strengths available:
- 300 mg – offers around 0.5 mg of CBD per drop, or 7.5 mg per serving
- 600 mg – offers around 1 mg of CBD per drop, or 15 mg per serving
- 1000 mg – offers around 1.67 mg of CBD per drop, or 25 mg per serving
A 300mg bottle costs $54 (around £43), the 600mg bottle costs $98 (around £78), and the 1000mg option costs $154 (approximately £122). In other words, it costs around $0.16 per milligram of CBD, which is pretty good pricing, especially when the quality is considered.
Premium Jane CBD Capsules
Premium Jane capsules are much like their CBD oils. They are organic, non-GMO, and vegan. Once again, they contain less than 0.2% THC, but an otherwise full spectrum hemp extract. We love it when companies offer capsules, because it gives consumers the option to avoid the peculiar taste of raw CBD oil and get their dose in a convenient, discrete manner. Of course, Premium Jane offer flavoured oils to get around the taste issue, but it’s great to see that they still offer capsules for those who prefer this method of administration.
There is plenty of information included in the product description about why you might choose capsules over oils. This kind of dedication to educating consumers is a breath of fresh air in the industry.
The capsules are made using a gel. The only problem here is that some customers have found that the capsules melt in hot temperatures – if you live somewhere warm, these are not for you!
One bottle contains 30 capsules, with 25 mg per capsule. This works out at 750 mg in the total bottle. You are supposed to take one capsule per day, so the whole bottle should last you around a month. It costs $89, which works out at around £70.
Premium Jane CBD Topicals
CBD-infused skin treatments are growing in popularity, and Premium Jane have certainly delivered. Their Topical CBD Ointment contains skin-loving ingredients like eucalyptus essential oil, jojoba, argan oil, grape seed oil and chamomile extract, among others. The ointment is also infused with a full spectrum hemp extract to make use of the antioxidant effects of CBD.
This is very easy to administer, as you simply massage a small amount into your skin as desired.
A 2oz tub contains 600 mg of CBD and will set you back $84 (around £67).
Our only complaint is more a matter of confusion. Premium Jane loudly and proudly advertise this ointment as ‘vegan’, mentioning it several times in the product description. However, the ingredients list states that this ointment contains emu oil, which means that this ointment contains a product derived from animals. Emu oil is obtained from farmed emus, and most vegans are against animal farming, so this would mean that it isn’t actually a vegan-friendly product.
Aside from this, the Topical CBD Ointment is a great moisturising treatment for troubled skin.
Premium Jane CBD Edibles
CBD gummies are up there with oils and capsules as one of the most popular consumption methods. Premium Jane have come up with their very own vegan gummy bears! These are formulated from a CBD isolate, meaning that they only contain CBD – that means they are 100% THC-free. The isolate used in these bears is 99% pure CBD for a strong, healthy dose.
The gummies contain 25 mg of CBD per bear. Premium Jane recommend cutting them in half at first if you are new to CBD. Generally, there is 20 servings in each bottle, as there are 20 bears, but if you do cut them in half then you increase this to 40 servings. The bottle, containing 500 mg in total, costs $38 (roughly £30), which is an exceptional price for CBD edibles.
Premium Jane Pros
- Very reputable brand with excellent reviews.
- Provides third-party lab reports readily; very transparent.
- Great pricing on all of their products.
- Good range of products, with a little something for everyone.
- Use CO2 extraction to draw out the cannabinoids from the hemp; this is the safest and most effective method.
- Wonderful, user-friendly website that is very informative and makes CBD newbies feel comfortable.
- The flavoured CBD oils are a nice touch – it’s hard to come by flavoured oils at all, let alone ones that taste nice.
- Most of their products are vegan-friendly.
Premium Jane Cons
- This is a US-based company, which unfortunately means you can’t get their products shipped to the UK.
- It would be nice if they offered more strength options for both the capsules and the gummies.
- The gel capsules melt in hot temperatures, which is not ideal.
- The ‘vegan’ labelling on the Topical CBD Ointment may not be accurate, which calls into question their other products.
Our Final Thoughts on Premium Jane
We have to say that Premium Jane is, all in all, a pretty great company. They have made a good name for themselves in the CBD industry, with a very professional website and pretty packaging to go alongside their high-quality products. We like the range that they have to offer, as there is a good selection of CBD oil alongside some capsules, edibles, and a topical. It would be nice if they added more strength options to the capsules and edibles, but this is a good start.
Best of all, we appreciate that Premium Jane goes to such lengths to educate their consumers. Because the industry has so little regulation (even over in the USA), it’s important for companies to take on this role and ensure they are transparent. By providing lab reports and giving the customer such a wealth of information, Premium Jane are pioneering for a better future in the CBD industry.
