The Hemp Doctor positions itself as a specialty outlet that grows its own proprietary strain of phytocannabinoid-rich CBD hemp and uses proprietary methods to create a special tincture that is highly optimized for the body to absorb easily. The growing process is strictly controlled and fully organic, as detailed by the company and followed by the farmers that they contract for the job.
The detailed description of the company’s manufacturing process seems to point to the fact that it is a highly sophisticated outfit with its in-house lab and special processes for removing unwanted THC using chromatography technology. Their special nano-emulsion feature claims that it creates particles of tincture that are smaller than most competing brands and hence are absorbed more readily by the human body.
Put together; their full-spectrum CBD oil is claimed to have a wide variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other associated compounds that create the Entourage effect and is more potent than other oils because of fast absorption into the human body. Their special process for eliminating THC culminates in a broad spectrum tincture that contains zero THC, a product that is not very common in the market.
The company has made a few press appearances, including FOX 46 Charlotte and Leafreport, adding to its credibility.
Amongst the tinctures, the Delta-8 THC oil seems to be the most popular, attracting the highest number of reviews. This product is followed in popularity by the broad spectrum tincture containing CB, CBG, and other legal cannabinoids.
In the hemp flowers and pre-rolls category, mini buds are a popular option amongst buyers because of the low cost per ounce of bud. These and other full-sized buds come in a variety of strain options such as – Bubba Kush x Baox, Spectrum, G-1, Hawaiian Haze, Wedding cake, etc. The 1.25gm premium pre-rolls are the next most popular product, and these have options of strains like OG Lime, Bubba Kush, Lifter, Karolina Kush, and Witches Brew.
Unlike many other sellers who only have fruit gummies for sale in the edibles section, The Hemp Doctor shop has not just gummies but also chewy candy, flavored rings, wedges, and gummy worms. Flavors for these include watermelon, orange, grape, lemon, strawberry, etc.
The pet hemp products have beef-flavored CBD dog treats and an organic CBD oil tincture. The dog treats are not that common in the market and indicate discerning thinking behind the product selection.
The vape cartridges and products are extremely popular and come in both CBD and Delta-8 THC varieties. The online shop sells oils, cartridges, as well as vape pens, batteries, and chargers.
The reviews on the vape cartridges range from mostly positive to extremely satisfactory. There seemed to have been some complaints with an older model of cartridges, which the company then upgraded. Most of the reviews that report some kind of problem have received a prompt response from the company with offers for replacement wherever applicable.
The edibles have also received high praise from the buyers. Customers seem to be especially happy with the potency of the Delta-8 edibles. The taste of the gummies has also received favorable comments. A lot of them also mention fast shipping.
The mini buds are favorites amongst those who like to roll their own joints. The price to quality ratio has received a lot of praise from customers, and almost everyone seemed happy with the taste of the flower and the effect of the CBD. The Hawaiian Haze and Sour Space Candy strains received special mentions. The pre-rolls have received similar reviews, although fewer in number.
The company also has a 4.7 average from almost 800 reviews on a trusted third-party review site.
As with most other online sellers, the website has a welcome offer – a 20% discount coupon in exchange for an email newsletter signup. The newsletter promises exclusive deals and discounts, so it might be worth it.
A points and rewards program offers points for purchasing, reviewing, commenting on blog posts, and spending over a certain amount. These can then be redeemed for discounts. There is also a 20% military discount that is available after credentials have been verified. The coupon code changes daily and can only be used once every 24 hours. The verification is done through a third-party service.
There is also an affiliate program for those who are interested in earning through referrals.
As with all legal sellers of hemp products, The Hemp Doctor offers certificates of analysis for each product and each harvest of each strain. These are publicly available on a dedicated section of the website. All products meet the requirements set forth by the 2018 farm bill.
The company has clearly marked policy pages for privacy, shipping, and returns and has an FDA disclaimer at the bottom of the website.
