About Us

We’re based in Los Angeles, California ☀️
We put your favorite CBD brands to the test.

We’re here to keep CBD brands accountable in this new and fast-growing industry. We do this by closely examining the brand’s claims, their products, and overall experience.

Extensive Reviews

We purchase the product directly from each brand and detail every step of the experience. We do the dirty work so you can stand on our shoulders as you make your purchasing decision.

Lab Tested

Once we get the products, we send them to a certified and independent lab for testing. Our labs test for cannabinoid profiles & potency, terpenes profile, pesticide analytes, and more.

Under The Magnifying Glass

We read through every single word on the company’s website, fine print, and paperwork so you don’t have to. We’ll let you know if there’s something off.

Born out of necessity

CBD is a rapidly growing industry, which also means that there is a lot of incentive for bad actors to cut corners for short term profits. In 2017, at least 52 people were poisoned from fake CBD products.

 

Whenever there is an emerging industry, often times the consumer lacks the proper knowledge to make an informed purchase. Companies can use this lack of knowledge to their advantage by making unsubstantiated claims. These claims ranges from outlandish claims such as curing cancer or losing weight to subtle claims such as the concentration of CBD in their products.

 

We’re here to put a stop to these bad companies by exposing them. We also highlight the honest companies who are doing their best to provide quality products.
