The Best CBD Oil Brands Reviewed

Best Cbd Oil Brands Reviewed 2019 Hero

Best CBD Oil Brands Independently Reviewed by Our Staff

Review updated as of April 2019

As CBD becomes more readily available, more people are using CBD for variety of conditions. While research around CBD is ongoing, preliminary clinical research and anecdotal evidence shows the potential and efficacy of CBD oil. The Ministry of Hemp team reviewed hundreds of brands available on the marketing to highlight those that meet our extremely high standards. These include clear, transparent labeling and honest marketing. It should always be easy to learn more about the products, including their complete ingredients. It should always be easy to know how much CBD you’re taking. All of our top CBD brands have clear, easy to navigate websites, and make it easy to learn more about their products. We try to focus on brands with sustainable, responsible business practices. To ensure that providing great CBD supplements is a brand’s primary goal, we do not work with any companies that use direct sales or multi-level marketing techniques. Ministry of Hemp may receive a percentage of sales if you purchase a product from one of these links. Read our full disclosure statement.”

 

CBD Oil Reviews – Ministry’s Top 8 Brands

About Our Criteria

For each brand selected to appear on our Top CBD brands page, we broke down their offerings a few different ways:  

Key Highlights

We’ve selected a few features and product offerings that stand out about each CBD brand. For a few brands, our editor and review team gave a special award to the brand. These brands are listed first. However, every brand on this list more than meets our high standards of quality.

Established

We wanted to learn how long these brands have been around. While some great brands are newer, others have been around since the 2014 Farm Bill, which first re-legalized hemp in the U.S. for research purposes.

Types of Products

For each brand, we display icons indicating the types of products they offer, including CBD tinctures, capsules, topicals, vapes, edibles (such as gummies) and pet products. Some of our top CBD brands offer just one or two products, while others have extremely diverse offerings.

Origin of Hemp

It’s vital to know how and where hemp was grown. That’s because hemp is a bioaccumulator, meaning hemp absorbs contaminants from the soil while it grows. So if the soil it was grown on is not good, clean soil, then that plant might contain high levels of lead or mercury.

When hemp is imported, it’s harder to ensure the hemp is grown responsibly, sustainably and without adding potential toxins to the products made from the crop. While it used to be that most CBD brands imported their hemp, today more and more brands use domestically grown hemp. We’ve also included some brands that use responsibly grown hemp imported from Europe.

Customer Service

Shopping for CBD can be confusing, mainly because there’s a lot we still don’t know about hemp extracts. We focused on brands with helpful and speedy customer service, and let you know how you can get in touch.

Shipping

We let you know a bit more about what it will cost to get your CBD. Today, many brands offer free, or flat rate shipping.

Returns

We investigated each brand’s return policy. While some brands only accept unopened products, others offer more comprehensive returns for unsatisfied customers.

3rd Party Lab Results

Customers should always request third party lab results that test for potency, pesticides, residual solvents, and mycotoxins of the CBD hemp oil. If a company is reluctant to share these results with you, it should automatically be a red flag and indicate that they have something to hide. We’ve done the work and checked if these brands offer those tests to their customers.

We’ve assigned a letter grade of C, B, A, or A+ based on what kind of lab results are offered to customers. All the brands on this list at least offer tests showing the levels of CBD and THC in them (with THC under the legal limits for hemp of 0.3%), but brands which go further are rated higher.

(Visited 712,950 times, 98,010 visits today)
Price

CBD can be expensive, and there are some good reasons for the high prices. However, we know that getting a good value for your money is also important. We’ve rated each brand from 1 to 3 dollar signs ($), based on their price range.
