Recreational cannabis use has been legal since 2014 in Alaska, but there are relatively few businesses formulating their own CBD. While the 2018 Farm Bill legalized industrial hemp at the federal level, the Last Frontier still has some hurdles to cross before growers can start planting. Hopefully, if all goes well, things will be ironed out in the Fall of 2019.
In states where CBD is legal, but growing is still not permitted, retailers have to rely on securing their hemp from other states. However, this has not stopped one company from creating their own CBD formulations in Alaska.
In this article, we are going to highlight some CBD oils from an Alaskan CBD company called Renew CBD Store.
Renew CBD Store
Renew CBD’s business encompasses two retail stores in Alaska that sell CBD, developing and producing CBD products for retail as well as wholesale, and running an online CBD store.
The company was founded by a group of Alaskans who wanted to set a standard in the CBD industry for high-quality and trusted hemp-based products.
In addition to Renew CBD’s own branded CBD products, they offer an enormous assortment of other trusted brands on their site as well. The company carries tinctures, oils, edibles, vape products, capsules, and more. We are going to focus on Renew CBD’s own popular Alaskan brand.

Renew CBD drops are the company’s own formulation. Not quite a full-spectrum oil, but not a single molecule isolate either, these tinctures fall into the category of broad-spectrum CBD extracts.
Broad-spectrum is sort of a hybrid between the two extremes. It is typically created by removing all of the other plant matter, cannabinoids, and terpenes from CBD oil and then adding some of the beneficial ingredients back in, also making sure that there are no trace amounts of THC.
The result is an easy-to-digest formula that can be enhanced with flavors for a gentler taste experience. In this case, Renew has started with an isolate and infused beneficial terpenes back into the formulation, along with organic flavors and an organic MCT carrier oil.
Entirely THC-free, Renew CBD drops are lab tested for potency and purity before being bottled and labeled for retail.
Potency and Prices
The Renew CBD line comes in a variety of potencies and reasonable price points. Here is a quick list:
•250 mg $31.99
•500 mg $34.99
•1000 mg $104.99
•1500 mg $144.99
•3000 mg $259.99
One notable thing about CBD isolates and broad-spectrum formulations is that they are ideal for those with taste sensitivities. Full-spectrum formulations are known for their pungent, earthy flavor—something that keeps many people from enjoying all the benefits of cannabidiol.
Isolates, on the other hand, can be infused with any flavor imaginable, which makes for a more pleasant taste experience—particularly for those new to CBD.
Renew CBD drops come in five delicious flavors:
We love that the Renew CBD store carries such a wide range of CBD products. They offer hundreds of options for anyone looking to make cannabidiol part of their daily regimen, and Alaskans near either of their brick and mortar locations will find a great selection of options to choose from.
The only thing we would change is to have a drop-down menu for each brand, as so many brands are represented on the site that the company’s own flagship product can be a bit hard to find amidst the sea of other products.
Otherwise, navigation is simple, and the shopping cart is fast and easy.

Alaska’s harsh Northern Climate makes growing industrial hemp more difficult than in other regions, yet new technological advances many allow for indoor grow operations. We look forward to seeing what the future holds when it comes to Alaskan-sourced CBD.
