Best CBD Oil Reviews: Our Criteria

Curious why we decided to look at certain criterion? Not sure what a certain criterion means? Read more on why we think these criteria are important:  

Established

We wanted to learn how long these brands have been around. Generally, most CBD brands are new (1-2 years) as they were formed after the US Farm Bill of 2014 was passed.

(Visited 564,704 times, 102,544 visits today)
Origin of Hemp

The main reason why hemp’s cultivation environment is so important is because of hemp’s properties of absorbing 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 from other countries, there’s a lack of regulation and transparency behind the quality control. Majority of CBD products on the market are still imported from countries like China and Eastern Europe. This is because there is not enough hemp grown in the US to supply the growing demand for CBD. It’s also cheaper and more lucrative for businesses to import CBD oil from these foreign countries.

Taste

Taking CBD everyday should be something you enjoy, so we wanted to see if any brands offered unique flavors. Overall, we’ve found that brands offer sprays and tinctures that are flavored.

(Visited 564,704 times, 102,544 visits today)
Customer Service

Shopping for CBD can be confusing, mainly because there’s a lot we still don’t know about hemp extracts. We tested which brands have the most helpful and speedy customer service.

Shipping

Returns

You might change your mind after you place your order. See which brand allows you to return unopened products.

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.

(Visited 564,704 times, 102,544 visits today)
Price

It gets quite confusing to try to compare prices of CBD products, because of the differences in size, dosage, and type of product. It’s pretty hard for customers to compare prices apples to apples. So we did the homework for you.
