Pros

Cons

Branding needs a serious upgrade

Limited range of products

The refund policy after the first purchase is unclear.

Company

Populum is a Latin phrase that means “for the people,” which is precisely what they represent in their products.  The company was founded in 2016 and had partnered with the domestic farms in Colorado for their hemp.  

 

They believe in transparency and that their customers deserve the best. Thus they make sure that their products are made using the best ingredients, guarantee satisfaction for their customers, and test every batch to make sure it meets their high standards.

Products

Populum offers a range of premium full-spectrum CBD products.  They offer supplements, skin products, CBD sets, and CBD for your pets.  

 

When you purchase a CBD beginner set, you  get 250mg tincture, 100mg Zens Pet tincture, and cold therapy hemp rub in it. Highly recommended for new users. 

 

  • Oil: Full-spectrum CBD tinctures are their best tasting products as they are flavored naturally with orange essence. Blended with grapeseed oil and coconut oil, they come in concentrations of 250, 500, and 1,000 milligrams of CBD..

 

  • Capsules: Gluten-free gelatin capsules offer 25mg CBD per capsule. Each bottle contains 30 doses.

 

  • Cold Therapy Hemp Rub: A menthol rub with 0.9mg CBD per ml. Other botanical ingredients like arnica, chamomile, and aloe vera are said to increase the soothing effect.

 

  • Zen Pets Calming Hemp Oil: 100mg full-spectrum CBD oil, blended with hemp seed oil and coconut oil. Intended for use with cats and dogs.

 

  • CBD pet set: you get 200mg chews and 250mg calming CBD oil that can help with separation issues, calm them during a thunderstorm, and mobility issues.

Price

To sample their products, you can try their beginner CBD set for $139.00.  

 

  • Capsules (450/750mg): $79.00- $109.00.  
  • Oil: $59 – $179
  • Cold therapy hemp rub: $45.00.

 

Populum offers its customers a “subscribe and save” program on all of their products that give you a monthly savings of 20%.  You customize your program the way you want, and you can cancel anytime or skip shipments if you need to.  If you use CBD regularly, this is the program for you, as you do not have to remember every month to order.  Populum will automatically ship your order to your door. 

Our Experience

We received sample packs for this review from the company and I tried them all over the course of 2 weeks. Here’s my personal experience                     

 

Cold Therapy Hemp Rub

I tried this rub to get rid of soreness in my legs after long-distance running. I could feel the effect immediately as it gave me a quick relief of pain and soreness. I recommend using it right after a run/workout and just before bedtime. I tried this three times, and I was pain-free in the morning every time.

 

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

I like this hemp oil. Not only does it help me to get rid of my anxiety and stress during the day, but it also gives you a nice fresh breath. The taste is great too. Recommend it.

 

Hemp Oil Softgel Capsules

The soft gels are one out of a dozen. Nothing special but it does the trick. Easy to keep with you at all times and to keep dosing CBD during the day. The effect only lasts for an hour or so, and I don’t feel comfortable yet to keep dosing more CBD so quickly.

Manufacturing

They use proprietary technology to isolate and remove any unwanted compounds.  At the same time, they are creating potency levels of other cannabinoids.  Their products are formulated in a standard GMP facility, testing and bottling the products with care.  The hemp is grown using organic farming practices in Colorado. 

Testing

They use third-party labs for their testing, and with each order, they include the lab results in the box.  Their products are triple tested for purity and quality, which is unique in this business.  Most brands test their products only once.  The lab tests each batch at every step of the formulation process.

Shipping

Populum ships its products through the USPS and offers free first class shipping.  The order will arrive in 5-7 business days.  If you want it sooner, you can use priority mail for $7.00, and you will receive your order in 3-5 business days.  Per federal regulations, they do not ship outside of the United States.

 

Populum wants to give their first time customers time to try their products with zero stress, so they offer a thirty-day, risk-free trial.  If their customers are not satisfied with their product within the first month, they will provide a full refund. This is only for first-time customers and only on one product per customer.   

 

Nothing is put on the website if they let you return any products after thirty-days or if you want to return a product and are not a first-time customer.

Buying Experience

The website is simple and nice. There wasn’t anything special about it though. All of their products have a description on the product’s page, what it can be used for, and other relevant information.  

 

It is great to know that when you buy CBD products that you are getting safe, natural, clean ingredients that have been tested to make sure and give you full-spectrum concentrations.  At Populum, they have representatives that will be happy to chat with you or talk to you on the phone with any questions or concerns, or you can email them.  

 

Populum offers veterans 25% off the retail price through their Veterans Assistance Program.  Just fill out the form on the page, and they will get back to you.

Conclusion

Although they do not offer many products, what they offer are reliable CBD oils and topicals.  With fewer products, it makes your selection easier.  

 

Adding the lab results for the products you order in the box is a huge plus because, with most other sellers, you have to look on their website to find this information. Even though we feel the brand needs to set itself apart in some way, we still feel Populum offers enough high-quality products to earn our recommendation.
