They continue to improve products based on customer feedback and continue to expand their CBD product lines.

Edibles Magazine Review | CBD Lion Vape Pens - 50mg Ghost Train Haze & Sour Tangie | Date Published: Nov 22, 2018
 

"Ghost Train Haze was the first one I tried. The flavor was very mild and clean with no real aftertaste. The contents of this particular pen should be effective with pain, antioxidants, inflammation, muscle relaxation, and insomnia. This pen did relax me. I literally dozed off during a football game. This flavor will indeed help you to relax.

Sour Tangie has a very pleasant taste and aroma with no perceivable aftertaste. The potential benefits of this flavor include help with insomnia, pain, anxiety, and inflammation.

I really like how compact size of these pens. They are about as big as a cigarette, and are pleasantly weighted. These pens are disposable, and won’t require you to search for a tiny button to push. It’s as simple as inhaling. I also like how the end of the pen lights up while using it. These vape pens are a good choice for those of us who need a discrete dose of CBD while on the go."

Edibles Magazine | Cbd Lion 500mg Tincture | Date Published: November 22, 2018
 
"I followed the instructions that suggested using one dropper-full of the CBD oil under my tongue. Ladies and gentlemen, the Entourage effect is real. At least for me, the combination of THC and CBD make a formidable weapon against pain, spasticity, and anxiety. I held The dropper full of CBD under my tongue for about a minute. That is long enough to allow for the CBD to enter your sublingual capillaries and deliver the health benefits directly to your bloodstream."
