Each validator score is determined by how it meets critical criteria, outlined below. For more information on our rating system, click here.

Type of CBD 14 points

Full Spectrum (14 points)
Full Spectrum CBD extract contains as many of the beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes found in the original plant as possible. These components work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits, an interaction commonly referred to as the “entourage effect“.

Broad Spectrum (10 points)
Broad spectrum CBD is full spectrum CBD without any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Broad spectrum CBD is made through different processes. One is by starting with CBD isolate and adding other beneficial cannabinoids (minus the THC), terpenes and flavonoids. Another is through a unique process that removes any THC. Broad spectrum CBD can offer some of the entourage benefits associated with full spectrum CBD, but it doesn’t have the same therapeutic potential of full spectrum. However, as it eliminates the chances of THC being introduced into the body, it can be a great choice for those who do not want any traces of THC in their system, whether for legal purposes, passing a drug test, etc.

Isolate (7 points)
CBD isolate is the pure, crystallized form of CBD. CBD Isolate is typically refined from crude oil extracted with ethanol. It contains no THC.

Hemp oil (2 points)
Typically the term “Hemp oil” is used in online marketplaces where the term “CBD” is currently forbidden. These products may contain CBD, but do not disclose what type. This is not to be confused with Hempseed oil which is a culinary product pressed from seed and does not contain relevant amounts of cannabinoids.

Not Specified (0 points)
The type of CBD is an essential detail. If a manufacturer does not readily communicate on their website the type of CBD used, they receive 0 points.

Extraction Method 3 points

CO2 (3 points)
CO2 is an extraction method that manipulates the pressure and temperature of carbon dioxide so that it performs like a solvent. CO 2 is non-toxic and very “tuneable” as a solvent, meaning that extraction parameters can be adjusted to target specific cannabinoids and terpenes in the plant.

Ethanol (3 points)
Ethanol extraction involves soaking plant material in ethanol. The saturated liquid is then distilled to remove ethanol, leaving just the cannabinoid rich oil behind. Ethanol extraction is able to process large quantities of hemp in a shorter amount of time, but it can require post-processing to clean up the final product and remove residual solvents.

Lipid (3 points)
Lipid extraction typically involves steeping plant material in a fatty oil such as coconut oil or butter to remove the cannabinoids. It is effective in pulling a whole plant extract, containing chlorophyll and many of the botanical compounds that other methods exclude.

IPA (1 point)
Isopropyl extraction is an alcohol extraction method similar to ethanol. However, isopropyl alcohol is significantly more toxic than food grade ethanol, so it is essential that residual isopropyl alcohol be completed removed during the extraction process.

Not Specified (0 points)
If a product omits an essential detail on how their product is manufactured, they receive 0 points.

Assurance 12 points

Independent studies show a majority of CBD products sold are mislabeled. That is why it is critical that you purchase CBD products from manufacturers that are fully transparent. Companies should provide a certificate of analysis that measures CBD content, presence of pesticides, and presence of heavy metals, readily available on the company’s website or through a QR code on the label. Many companies claim independent analysis but either provide no certificates or make it difficult for you to review one. That is why these companies are given a “0” rating. Other companies provide a less than complete certificate of analysis. Here are the full ratings:

1. Complete Certificate of Analysis that is readily available and includes:

  • CBD levels
  • Presence of pesticides
  • Presence of heavy metals

    (12 Points)

2. Complete Certificate of Analysis that is readily available and only includes:

  • CBD levels
  • Presence of pesticides

    (9 Points)

3. Complete Certificate of Analysis that is readily available and only includes:

  • CBD levels
  • Presence of heavy metals

    (9 Points)

4. Complete Certificate of Analysis that is readily available and only includes:

  • CBD levels

    (6 Points)

5. No Certificate of Analysis or Certificate of Analysis is not readily available

     (0 points)

Quality 6 points

Each quality category has a point value associated with it, with a maximum cumulative value of 6 points. Note: a product is either ‘Organic’ or ‘Certified Organic’; it can’t be both.

Certified Organic (+2 points)
Certified Organic CBD products have been made with hemp grown under strict organic standards by a farm that has been certified by the USDA or another certifying body. In addition, it has been extracted and processed in a certified facility that is inspected and monitored. With the lack of regulations from state to state, this certification connotes that the product has been made by farmers and processors that are vetted and inspected. These products typically display the USDA Organic label.

Organic (+1 point)
A company claims that they grow using organic practices but do not show it has been verified by a formal certifying body.

Pesticide-Free (+1 point)

Non GMO (+1 point)

USA Sourced (+1 point)

USA Hemp Certified (+1 point)
This hemp was certified by an independent certifying agency, The US Hemp Authority. Their seal ensures certain standards and best practices around hemp production.

CBD per Dose 10 points

Similar to any functional supplement, effectiveness is directly correlated with dose. Many products currently marketed deliver a dose of CBD which is considerably below what studies have shown to be an effective dose. CBD Validator has established a sliding scale:

≥ 39 mg per dose = 10 points
29-38 mg per dose = 9 points

19-28 mg per dose = 8 points
15-18 mg per dose
= 7 points

12-14 mg per dose = 6 points
10-11 mg per dose = 5 points
8-9 mg per dose = 4 points

7 mg per dose = 3 points
6 mg per dose = 2 points
5 mg per dose = 1 point
≤ 4 mg CBD per dose = 0 Points

Cost per Dose 5 points

In addition to having a safe product that is accurately labeled consumers should also expect to pay a fair price. Many marketed CBD products are grossly overpriced. To help consumers insure that are receiving value the CBD validator has set up a sliding scale based on the cost per dose. Our scale is as follows:

≤ $2.50 per dose = 5 points

$2.51 – $3.50 per dose = 4 points

$3.51 – $5.00 per dose = 3 points

$5.01 – $7.00 per dose = 2 Points
≥ $7.01 per dose = 1 point
