CBD Products Grown and Processed in The Southeastern USA
With production facilities located in Miami, Florida, and product ingredients extracted from hemp grown in Kentucky, Verified CBD has been expanding their customer base since they launched the company in 2014. Their website claims they have greater than “76,500 happy customers” and the site currently displays more than 1,000 customer reviews. The overwhelming majority of those reviews express positive reactions to their products and demonstrate repeat-purchase loyalty.
Third-party sites with Verified CBD oil reviews also paint the company and its products in a good light. The company appears to make an effort to respond to product and service dissatisfaction comments, even if they appear on a third-party site. Here’s a closer look at how they approach the CBD oil market and what their customers think of their products.
What Product-Users Have To Say
Typical user comments revolve around how Verified CBD oil products have helped them obtain relief from pain and anxiety. Purchasers also claim that Verified CBD products help them to remain clear-headed and focused. Some of the symptoms that purchasers claim to have found relief from include the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, inflammation and muscle aches. Purchaser comments also note that Verified CBD’s products have enabled them to fall asleep when they would have otherwise tossed and turned.
A significant portion of the user feedback describes Verified CBD product satisfaction compared to higher-priced suppliers claiming equal benefits. The Verified CBD products appear to appeal to purchasers who want results, but who do not want to spend top-dollar on premium hemp brands.
Purchasers have also commented on the results they’ve achieved with their pets through Verified CBD’s Dog Treats product. Highly excitable dogs have shown noticeably calming effects and older dogs suffering from aging pains have become more active. Purchasers also noted that the Verified CBD Dog Treats helped with their pets’ stomach issues. The company website recommends using their CBD Dog Treats to help reduce stress in dogs when they’re exposed to loud noises, such as fireworks and thunderstorms.
Product Types and Popularity
There are currently 16 products available for purchase through the Verified CBD website’s online ordering system:
- Three CBD Oil products (500 mg, 750 mg and 1500 mg) in one-ounce dropper bottles
- Two CBD Capsule products (10 mg and 25 mg)
- Two CBD skin cream products (Anti-Aging and Daily Skin Re-Energizer)
- CBD Intensive Healing Pain Rub
- CBD Gummies
- CBD Dog Treats
- CBD Vape Oil
- CBD Weight Loss Spray
- CBD Energy and Focus Spray
- CBD Pain Relief Spray
- CBD Sleep Spray
- CBD Anti-Anxiety and Stress Spray
If one were to judge which are the most popular Verified CBD products based on the number of customer reviews for each product submitted to the company’s website, their 750-mg CBD Oil would easily take first place with their 500-mg version coming in second. Their 1500-mg CBD Oil product, however, fell far below third place having earned less than one-third of the number of customer-review submissions as their other two CBD Oil products. The selling price of $129.95 (after a 55-percent discount) may have had some effect on the much smaller response. The next highest selling price (after a 55-percent discount) was $84.95 for the 1,500-mg CBD Vape product, which garnered only two customer reviews (both were highly favorable). The third-place review-submission, with far more than the overall average number of product reviews, was for Verified CBD’s Dog Treats.
Verified CBD makes the ingredient lists for their products available on their website. They claim that the hemp they use to extract their CBD is GMO-free, has been organically grown (in Kentucky) and has been verified to be free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. In addition to CBD extracts and isolates, Verified CBD products can contain additional ingredients (which are clearly noted on their individual product pages). The Verified CBD Weight Loss Spray, for example, contains sucralose, which may not sit well with some potential purchasers.
The Verified CBD Anti-Anxiety and Stress Spray product page notes that the item contains 1.67 mg of melatonin and 1 mg of a proprietary blend of valerian root and GABA. (GABA, or Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, is a neurotransmitter and can block the impulses travelling between nerve cells in the brain.) This proprietary blend is also included in their CBD Sleep Spray product. The CBD Gummies and Dog Treats contain several extra ingredients, which should not be too surprising.
Users of CBD products can attach a great deal of importance to the degree of purity found in the items they purchase and consume. The issues of lab-tested and verifiable CBD potency, types of ingredients and the presence of contaminants can play a significant role in what products are chosen. Visitors to the Verified CBD website can review product ingredient lists on the individual item pages and also download PDF-format COFAs (certificate of analysis spec. sheets) for all of the company’s products except for their CBD skin creams, vape oil, dog treats and gummies.
The downloadable COFAs were issued by the third-party lab that performed the tests, ProVerde Laboratories in Milford, MA. Although the testing lab’s website states that they test “cannabis and hemp for harmful contaminants such as mold, mildew, bacteria, heavy metals and pesticides in an effort to ensure product sold or processed is safe to consume,” the COFA sheets only contain testing results for the concentrations of cannabinoids, CBD and THC found in the product. These particular results serve to back up Verified CBD’s claim of a product purity level at least 80 percent or greater and also provide the legal foundation to sell the product (CBD products must contain no greater than 0.3 percent THC in order to be sold legally in all 50 states). Those potential purchasers who are somewhat demanding regarding biological contaminants, pesticides and heavy metals in the products they use may, however, be disappointed. No contaminant testing result reporting appears on the downloadable COFAs for any of the Verifiable CBD products tested.
The Verified CBD website claims that their products are tested for “pesticides, heavy metals and microbiological contamination” and that “advanced HPLC (HPLC-DAD) equipment” is employed “as in leading U.S. labs.” It is also noted that “products are manufactured and tested in a GMP certified top-grade PETA Cruelty Free facility based in Miami, Florida, USA.” This would lead readers to assume that the contaminant testing is being performed in-house rather than by a third party such as the lab in Milford, MA. It can be further assumed that there is some sound reasoning behind this; in-house QC testing means that the manufacturer can be (as stated) “certain that any abnormalities are immediately reported” and then dealt with quickly. How each individual purchaser will respond to the lack of reviewable contaminant-testing results may, however, depend on how vital the issue is in relation to their personal product-purity expectations.
The Taste Factor
The three CBD Oil products (500 mg, 750 mg, and 1500 mg) are only offered in the natural flavor format. The company’s CBD Vape Oil product, however, is available in menthol, grape and “razzleberry” flavors. Out of Verified CBD’s five spray products, only the Energy and Focus Spray is flavored (with peppermint), although the other sprays all have stevia extract (a natural sweetener) added.
Purchasers have noted that the CBD Gummies “taste great.” Regarding the subject of taste, an interesting customer comment can be found on the CBD Dog Treats page; the purchaser noted that they can be “people treats” and “they don’t taste half bad.”
CO2 Extraction Process
As can be expected from a top manufacturer, Verified CBD uses the CO2 extraction process to pull their CBD oils from their organically-grown hemp. The CO2 method is costly, but it’s known for its ability to produce a high-potency, pure and safe end product. Manufacturers who rely on the CO2 extraction process can expect to obtain a CBD extract that can be lab-tested and verified to be up to 99 percent pure. The CO2 process is also free of any kind of synthetic chemical.
Pricing, Shipping and Refund Policy
Visitors to the Verified CBD website will discover that it’s a McAfee Secure website. They will also find that products are selling at discounts (currently ranging between 43 percent and 65). After the discounts are applied, the purchase prices range from $22.95 for their CBD Gummies (a bag of ten 20-mg gummies) and upward to $129.95 for the one-ounce bottle of 1500-mg CBD Oil. Except for the CBD Vape Oil, Dog Treats, Gummies and Anti-Aging Cream products (at the time of this review), additional discounts were offered for items ordered in quantities of two, three or four. Verified CBD provides fast and free worldwide shipping and does not specify that any minimum order size is required.
The Verified CBD website offers a 30-day refund policy, with the time-frame beginning on the day the purchaser takes delivery. A return-authorization number must be obtained through the company’s Customer Support team and refunds will otherwise not be issued. The company website states that it “may take a few weeks” for a returned-for-refund package to be inspected by their Quality Assurance team. After the inspection is completed, a full refund is issued within three to seven days.
