Zion Medicinals

review of Zion Medicinals full spectrum CBD

I am a big fan of CBD brands that start as a labor of love. It’s one thing that brought me to try a company like Joy Organics, started by a wife/mother/grandmother who couldn’t find satisfactory relief for her aches and pains. The same applies to Zion Medicinals. Founded by Brian Caruso to ease the symptoms of Lyme disease for his wife, when she could not find relief in traditional drugs, Zion was born.

She had tried using other CBD brands at first. While there was some alleviation of her symptoms, it was minimal and needed to be stronger. That’s when he created his own brand with pharmacy-quality CBD to deliver the best results.

What Makes Zion Medicinals Different?

While they do not have a vast catalog as you would see at other brands (which you can view here: hlcomic.com/best-cbd-oil-reviews), everything they do is done right. The way I see it, there are four things that set Zion apart from the competition.

  • Single sourced U.S. organic hemp
  • Ethanol extraction to pull more elements than CO2
  • Full spectrum (as opposed to CBD isolate)
  • Most importantly, their unique alchemy-based spagyric processing for added minerals, salts & bioavailability

What is Spagyric Extraction?

Meaning alchemy, spagyric refers to a method that has been used for over 4,000 years as a means to purify and perfect objects.

In terms of how it is utilized for the hemp plant, it involves fermentation, extraction, purification, and then recombining all of the components to make their raw tincture.

Unlike other brands that use solvents, Zion’s process does not involve any harsh chemicals. Rather, only organic alcohol is used (in a vacuum) so that the medicinal elements of the plant are not destroyed in the process.

The process involves three steps, which I will very briefly cover (more information is available on their website):

  • Extraction of hemp plant material with the use of ethanol to make a raw hemp tincture.
  • Burning the leftover plant material into a white ash (calcination) to extract the minerals and salts. This ash is then mixed with distilled water, filtered, and left to evaporate so it can crystallize.
  • The raw hemp tincture is then recombined with these crystals, with the end product containing all of the acids, oils, and minerals in a concentrated and purified form to make a full spectrum hemp extract.
  • This extract is then diluted with fractionated coconut oil to make the desired potency for the highest medicinal use.

Products at Zion Medicinals

While they do not have the robust catalog as you see at other CBD brands, everything they do is done well. Nothing but high-quality, pure hemp oil.

At a low price on their site, you can get their hemp oil available in 750mg or 1500mg strength. Product features include:

  • Multi-day spagyric hemp processing
  • Full spectrum cannabinoid & terpene profile
  • Ingredients: hemp, fractionated coconut oil
  • 1500mg cannabinoids per 30ml (1 oz) high potency formula
  • Single-sourced Colorado organic hemp
  • Organic alcohol extraction process

They also sell full spectrum hemp salves as a topical reliever. This healing salve is amazing on aching joints or muscles. It also works very well to get rid of a nasty headache after rubbing it on your temples.

Ingredients include Spagyric extracts of Hemp, Bloodroot, Clove, Mullien, Acerola Berry and Dragon’s Blood Resin in Organic Jojoba Oil and Candelilla Wax. As you can see it is naturally rich in cannabinoids, Vitamin C, minerals, and natural rejuvenating oils.

Final Thoughts

This brand first caught my eye because of their story, helping with Lyme disease (in another post, I go more in-depth on CBD for Lyme disease). I was even further intrigued when I read about their unique extraction process. While this is a more extensive and time-consuming process than the other brands use, the price is still in line with the competition and the quality of the oil shines through. Definitely give this brand a look!

On top of great pricing, they also offer a subscription model at a discounted rate. Sign up and get your CBD delivered on your schedule to take the hassle away and so you’re never without!
