About Green Roads
Green Roads products are 3rd party tested and are made from pesticide-free, non-GMO American grown hemp. Green Roads labels their products as “Broad Spectrum” because their CO2 processing retains only non-THC cannabinoids, (of which there are many different types inside the hemp plant), terpenes, and other beneficial elements that are found in hemp. The company claims that THC will not be detectable in your system even with regular use of their products. Another unique feature of Green Roads products is that a licensed compounding pharmacist formulates their large variety of hemp products using Kosher certified vegetable glycerin and hemp seed oil as the base.
One of the difficulties in understanding CBD or any Hemp or Cannabis product labels is the fact that there are no industry standard terms. Let’s explore what Green Roads is saying when they refer to Broad Spectrum, relative to Full Spectrum or Isolate.
Green Roads 350 mg CBD is a medium-strength pharmacist-formulated product. Each 1 ml dose has 23 mg of “broad spectrum” CBD. Green Roads says that their products maintain the hemp plant’s Cannabinoid profile, while virtually eliminating the psychotropic compound, THC. This is perfect for individuals worried about potential drug screens.

Trying the Product
What does it taste and smell like?
Green Roads 350 mg CBD oil is a non-flavored product, but since it is a broad spectrum product, you don’t end up tasting the strong earthy flavor common in full spectrum products. Plus, the use of vegetable glycerin itself is slightly sweet. Opening the bottle, I don’t smell anything. However, it is rather thick compared to other products that use an MCT base. The thickness does help the product to stay under my tongue but its viscosity is not something I prefer.
Effect over time
This product has a very strong sedative effect on me. Within about 30 minutes I get very sleepy, even if I take it in the morning. When I do take this before bed, it knocks me out and I don’t move for a solid 6 hours or more. Interestingly, I also have some pretty crazy dreams each time I take this product. Taking Green Roads 350 mg also helps with headaches within 1 hour of consumption.
The first time I took this product was about 10 in the morning. I had the hardest time keeping myself awake for the next several hours, even after a large cup of coffee, and despite that this is a lower concentration than other brands I have tried. The pain I had in my low back prior to taking it was gone, but I ended up so sleepy it was hard to function. I now only use this product before bed because I know it has such a strong sedative effect on me.
Value for the Money
Green Roads 350 mg CBD Oil is a mid-strength product that would be most beneficial for someone new to CBD, with mild symptoms, or is subject to drug screens because Green Roads claims to remove THC from their products. It is more expensive than some other more budget-friendly brands at similar concentrations, but the value is in the licensed pharmaceutical compounding and the potency of the product.
What I liked about Green Roads 350 mg CBD Oil
The Green Roads 350 mg broad spectrum CBD oil works very well as a sleep aid for me. It works in under 30 minutes and the effects last all night. Yes, it reduces any pain I have, but it is amazing at how well it helps me to fall asleep and stay asleep.
What I didn’t like about Green Roads 350 mg CBD Oil
The taste is mildly sweet, but the consistency is definitely very thick, which helps it to stay under the tongue easily. However, because it is really thick compared to other products, it can be somewhat difficult to swallow which I don’t like. Green Roads 350 mg CBD oil is also expensive relative to other brands of similar concentrations because their 15ml bottle is similarly priced to comparative 30 ml bottles by other brands. It is a great sleep aid, but if I take it during the day, it makes me very drowsy.
