What do we know about PharmaHemp?
PharmaHemp is a family-owned company. All the products they manufacture are monitored by a laboratory to ensure that their CBD-rich products are top quality. The company owners carefully select their hemp providers. All PharmaHemp products are made from European-certified seeds that matured in fertile soil on farms in Slovenia and Croatia. The hemp plants are grown and harvested in a traditional manner, without the use of any pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or heavy metals. Moreover, the hemp is harvested by hand and only on certain designated days. After harvesting it is dried at temperatures a little below 35C. In order to preserve the unique nutritional content of the raw hemp, the plants are processed using a gentle but very efficient supercritical CO2 extraction.
PharmaHemp’s production process is compliant with GMP conditions, every stage of production is monitored to verify the consistency of their CBD products. PharmaHemp has a large selection of products including drops, extracts, balms, creams, and e-liquids. They also offer some more innovative products like CBD toothpaste and mouthwash with CBD and CBD crystals, and they even have Hygienic Wipes for Hemorrhoid Care with CBD.
Let’s talk about PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3%
PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% are made from industrial hemp plants (Cannabis sativa L.) that contain only trace amounts of THC (less than 0,2%). The farms where the hemp is grown do not use any pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Lab test results confirm that this is a high-quality, organic product. You get 300mg of CBD in the 10 ml bottle. It is full-spectrum hemp extract obtained through the supercritical CO2 extraction process that preserves all cannabinoids (not only CBD), terpenes, flavonoids, and other nutrients. That’s why it also contains trace amounts of THC (though again, below 0.2%). CBD itself is non-psychoactive and the THC concentration present in CBD Drops 3% (taken at the recommended dose) is not enough to get you “high”. You can choose whether you want to purchase CBD which is diluted in hemp seed oil or olive oil.

Let’s take a look at PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% lab test results (COA).
There are Certificates of Analysis for CBD Drops 3% available on the PharmaHemp website. The testing is performed by Pharma Lab. Unfortunately, the lab test results published on the website didn’t match the batch number of the bottle that I possess. I decided to write a direct email to PharmaHemp asking for correct documentation. However, their answer surprised me. The customer service representative informed me that COA for batch DR03019035C is not available. Apparently, the company prepares samples of the bulk batch for analysis; after that, bulk products are bottled and, in this step, bottled products get a new serial number. This is the stated reason that the batch number on the product doesn’t match with the batch number on the certificate, though that is not very helpful or satisfying. In this case, we will have to trust PharmaHemp that the COA available on their website belongs to the product in my possession.
The laboratory provides you with the results for the cannabinoid profile: the tested sample contained 1.21% of CBD and 2.02% of CBDA. CBDA is an acidic precursor to CBD and has some health benefits. Overall, the sample contained 3.23% of CBD(A), so we can conclude that PharmaHemp correctly labels their products. There should be around 3% of CBD in a 10 ml bottle and the COA confirms that.
The tested sample contained 0.03% of THC, so this product is considered safe. Consumed in reasonable amounts it shouldn’t get you “high.” Let me remind you that according to the EU legislation system, products that contain less than 0.2% of THC are legal. The tested sample did contain some other cannabinoids like CBDV, CBGA, CBG, and CBC, but in very small amounts.
On the manufacturer’s website, we can read that CBD Drops 3% is an organic product that doesn’t contain any heavy metals. Unfortunately, the PharmaHemp doesn’t provide any lab test results to support that statement.
My personal experience with PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3%.
PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% at first glance
My first impression with PharmaHemp wasn’t the best, because I had to wait a long time for my parcel. 6 workings days past between the day I submitted my order, and PharmaHemp sending it through their shipping company.
When I did finally receive my package, I was quite impressed by the design. PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% are packed into a black cardboard box. The minimalist design appealed to me. The bottle is black, with a black built-in dropper and black label. On the label, you can find some basic information about the product and its manufacturer. There is also a batch number so you can go online and check the lab test results for your oil, though that has its issues, as you can read in the Lab Results section above. What is missing on the label and cardboard box is any information about the recommended dose for this product.
Is it safe for human consumption?
I was quite surprised when I read on a label that you can use this oil topically. You can apply it to your skin as you need it. Wait, what? What would that even do? Well, I suppose if you were wondering if that was possible, good news: it is!
However, most consumers would like to consume their CBD oil orally. Unfortunately, the manufacturer doesn’t give you any information about the way you should do that. There is also no information about that on their website either. At this point, I started to wonder whether this oil is safe for human consumption…
I decided to write an email to PharmaHemp’s customer service asking what it is all about. I’ve found out that due to the current complex legal situation in Slovenia regarding CBD products, they have had to register all their products as cosmetic products. Regardless, their CBD oils are made of food-grade ingredients and can be safely ingested.
Let’s try PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% – Taste and smell
Even though the manufacturer didn’t give me any information about the recommended dosage I decided to start taking it orally twice a day. The first day I took only one drop to check the taste of the oil.
When you unscrew the cap and take the first sniff of oil it doesn’t smell too strong. I found the aroma quite pleasant, perhaps because I decided to buy the version in which the CBD extract is diluted in olive oil. The color of the oil is dark brown. However, the taste of the oil is a bit too strong for my preferences. I found it very bitter, even after taking one drop. I put the oil under my tongue and allowed it to dissolve there. I calculated that one drop should give me somewhere between 1.5-2mg of CBD. I don’t think that I felt any different after taking this amount.
Using PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% for mood swings.
Each day I increased the amount I was taking. After a week of testing the oil, I started to feel very mild results. At first, I noticed that I’m getting less annoyed in situations that usually would get on my nerves. After 2 weeks of taking PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% my mood was considerably better than before I started taking it. Even people around me noticed that I’m less reactive to negative circumstances.
Another thing I should mention is that thanks to the PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% I had significantly less trouble falling asleep. What is even more important, is that I wasn’t waking up during the night as frequently as I usually do. As a result, in the morning I felt energized. It took me less time to get up and start my morning routine. Thanks to the good night’s rest in the morning I was motivated, and I didn’t need as much coffee to wake me up.
PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% speeds up recovery after yoga practice
I particularly enjoyed using PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% before and after yoga practice. When I used it before my stretching, I felt that my muscles relaxed more quickly. Therefore, I could safely go deeper into certain yoga poses. In this way, it helped to relieve my stress. The CBD oil was very helpful after my yoga practice as well: taking CBD when your difficult class ends can help you recover faster. I think that it can also prolong the blissful feeling that you get during practice. Also, I noticed that I didn’t get any muscle pains after very intensive yoga sessions. Therefore, I could practice more. Without CBD I would have to take breaks that would last a couple of days because I would get muscle sores. Thankfully, CBD helped with quick recovery.
What I like about PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3%
From when I first received my order, I really enjoyed the design of the packaging of the CBD Drops 3%. It’s also good than when you order this oil you can choose which oil base you want, and pick between olive oil and hemp oil. It has a pleasant smell. This is a good product for people looking for mild-strength CBD oil.
What I didn’t like about PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3%
I’m afraid that the list of things I didn’t like is a bit longer than my list of things I did like about this product. First, I disliked waiting for my package for so long, for a reason that seemed to be entirely within the manufacturer’s control. Also, I felt confused when I noticed that the manufacturer doesn’t mention the recommended dose of consumption but recommends instead to use their oil topically. If I would be a newbie in the CBD world, I wouldn’t know how to use it. In addition, I didn’t really enjoy the taste even though I like how it smells well enough.
Summary of PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3%
Value of Money
PharmaHemp CBD Drops 3% is a mid-priced product. However, in my opinion, the manufacturer should prove that what you are paying for is worth your money. PharmaHemp doesn’t provide any lab results that would reassure you that this product is organic. Moreover, this product contains only 3% of CBD, so you can find other products on the market at the same price but with higher potency.
