Populum was co-founded by Gunhee Park and Ola Olusogatwo friends who personally experienced the benefits of hemp oil and never looked back. Guhnee first experienced the power of natural supplements through the simplest, easiest life change: eating superfoods. When he saw that natural supplements could offer a healthier alternative to some pharmaceuticals, he was inspired to develop a high quality hemp oil for the masses, and the rest is history.

Co-founder Ola Olusoga has a similar story. After years of using synthetic supplements in pursuit of health, fitness and cognitive enhancement, Ola finally tried hemp oil on the recommendation of – you guessed it – Gunhee.  

Populum (which means ‘The People’ in latin) exists to help people challenge the status quo: one that stigmatizes hemp, but embraces prescription drugs. Instead, Populum seeks to empower the people for a better way of living. Gunhee, Ola, and the Populum team believe that a better way of living will come through the benefits of hemp, a plant they believe has been neglected for far too long.

Editor’s Notes

Remedy Review is constantly working to make the review of hemp-derived products less subjective. That’s why we aim to put numbers around quality, value, and transparency. We also know it helps to hear what a real person thinks about a product before you spend your money. These Editor’s Notes are the opinion of our staff—not a suggestion from the brand and definitely not medical advice. 

  • 👅/ Populum is the CBD oil we thought tasted best.
  • I actually gave this oil to a friend who thought CBD oil was helping her sleep, but struggled with the taste of other products.
  • Populum will also win some points for packaging and branding, as these product look great and feel really well-made and clean. The paper of the box, the feel of the label, even the weight of the oil feels nice.
  • Populum offers subscribe and save options. They also have a 30-day risk free trial.
  • 3 oil strengths available
    • ☁️ / 250mg is good for a body calm
    • ⚡ / 500mg bottle is more effective, maybe a good option to try for enhanced sleep
    • ⚡⚡ / 1000mg bottle elicits a feeling of deep relaxation. I think once you get into a dropper or 1000mg+ oil you want to be at home, not driving, unless you’re really used to how CBD interacts with your body.
  • We also gave the Populum pet oil to my dog, Harry, who is an off-the-wall doodle. I think once we got a steady supply in him, he relaxed more. This is a dog who will stand there and stare at you for an hour, braced like something’s coming and he just doesn’t know what yet—so it was nice to see him care less about his surroundings. Especially with toddlers around, taking the edge off an anxious dog is a nice-to-have.
  • 🇺🇸 American-made products
  • Populum also has a “Cold Therapy Hemp Rub” that is said to promote muscle and joint relief. In my experience these rubs feel like the cooler half of an Icy Hot, only with more natural ingredients.
