“5 Best” CBD Brands Reviews 2023

Hey there, it’s no secret that CBD has taken the world by storm, and you’re absolutely right! This incredible compound, derived from the hemp plant, seems to be everywhere these days. It’s been hailed as a real game-changer, promising a plethora of benefits for your health and beauty. We’re talking stress and anxiety reduction, improved sleep, pain and inflammation relief, and even skincare magic! The best part? CBD won’t give you that “high” feeling that THC, hemp’s other active component, can deliver.

Now, here’s the kicker: with so many CBD products flooding the market, finding the right ones can be a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Some have low-quality hemp oil, others sneak in traces of THC, and don’t even get us started on those brands that are less than transparent about their production and testing processes. The secret sauce is in choosing high-quality products, preferably with PCR hemp oil and little to no THC, and they should be rigorously tested for purity, free of solvents, pesticides, and herbicides.

We’ve put our taste buds, skin, and well-being on the line, trying out more than a hundred products from the most popular brands out there. We meticulously scrutinized claims, manufacturing methods, and took into account factors like quality, price, value, and the transparency of data and testing results. And guess what? We found the cream of the crop – the 5 best brands that really stood out. So, why not kick back and let us share their findings with you? So, without further ado, here are the top picks we believe will make your shelves shine! 😄

MedAims is a well-known brand for years, especially among athletes. The company is upfront about its high standards, transparency and breakthrough extraction technology. The products offered by MedAims as well as the company itself earned high marks from researchers and testers across the board. MedAims was one of the only brands tested to offer a full range of both full-spectrum and broad-spectrum products. All of its products are made from hemp grown naturally outdoors—no greenhouses—that yield a 100-strain strong, organic, non-GMO crop that provide benefits other brands’ products do not. And while some do contain trace amounts ofTHC, as full-spectrum hemp products do, they are always under the legal limit of 0.3%. The company’s broad-spectrum products are THCfree.

MedAims offers an impressively wide variety of high-purity options, including tinctures, salves, balms, lotions, softgels, gummies, mints, and even products for animals. Its full-spectrum and broad-spectrum hemp oil extracts, available in three flavors, are a standout, as are body care products like the Cooling Rub, Body Lotion, and skin care such as Face Cream and Acne Cream.

MedAims products are created using high-quality CO2 extraction methods and are checked for purity and efficacy using in-house and third-party testing. We also gave the company kudos for its laudably transparent and informative website, risk-free product trials and top-notch customer service. Overall, MedAims products provide great value at competitive prices that address a broad range of needs.

With the widest range of products and thoughtfully curated product bundles available, Charlotte’s Web is a one-stop shop for enthusiasts. Oils, capsules, gummies, topicals and pet products—it’s all there. The THCfree isolate is a bestseller and with good reason: Our researchers and testers loved its customizable usage.

Information on the company’s proprietary formulations—which are touted as using whole-plant extracts that include a variety of beneficial compounds, terpenes (naturally occurring aromatic oils), flavonoids, and essential fatty acids—are available on its site. However, it isn’t as readily available and clearly explained as we’d like; the same holds true for its manufacturing processes. There’s no mention of third-party testing either. And while Charlotte’s Web products are not currently certified organic, the company claims that all pesticides, mildewcides and herbicides used on its hemp plants are.

A well-known company founded by a pharmacist, Green Roads products include full- and broad-spectrum oils of varied strengths, pet products, and indulgent spa treats. Users can readily find product lab sheets on its website and third-party test results by scanning QR codes on packaging, a big plus for many on the testing team, and the company also breaks down usage information for each product so that it’s easy to understand. The available Beginner’s Bundle is a great way for those new.

However, Green Roads’ proprietary formulations impact its transparency: The company does not provide specifics about its extraction processes and certifications, making it hard for users to understand exactly how its products are made. We also weren’t able to easily find information on (PCR) hemp oil, a key feature which is missing from its products.

RoyalCBD creates its products using organically and sustainably grown hemp from local sources—something that appealed to many of our researchers and testers. Products fall below the standard .3% THClevel and are made with state-of-the-art supercritical CO2 extraction techniques. The company also offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee and offers a robust customer rewards program.

Product options are somewhat limited, though they do include oils, topicals and dog treats and are competitively priced. Third-party lab tests are available, but only upon request.

PureKana’s vanilla-, citrus- and mint-flavored oils were a draw for researchers and testers who appreciate a more sweetly palatable experience. The team also enjoyed assessing the brand’s broad assortment of products, which includes dog treats, bath bombs and more.

Not as sweet is PureKana’s lack of information regarding its manufacturing processes. The company claims to use a solvent-free CO2 extraction, but provides no details beyond that.
