Joy Organics SCORE



Joy Organics cares deeply about the quality of its products, holding the purity of its CBD to very high standards and using premium, organic ingredients. This makes products a little on the pricey side, but you are paying extra for the security of knowing you are making your purchase from a company that cares. Even though we would like to see a more robust broad spectrum formula with no THC, along with faster shipping times from this company, Joy Organics should be at the top of your list when you are looking for a transparent CBD product you can trust.

Joy Organics has built a reputation for itself as a trustworthy, go-to source for CBD that is safe and effective.

The company is family-owned and named after co-founder Joy Smith, who discovered the benefits of CBD in her search for a holistic way to treat some of her chronic physical symptoms. This is one of those brands that appeals to everyone, but especially people who may be hesitant to try CBD.

Its clean and clear representation of CBD as a product to support your wellness is backed up by Joy Smith herself, and the website is full of testimonials about the ways the company’s quality products and caring customer service have benefitted customers.

Products from Joy Organics are made with all natural ingredients, with as many as possible being organic. It partners with farms that grow their hemp in ways that help keep everything natural, however, these farms are not certified organic.

The premium ingredients lead to prices being a little higher than average, but that is generally the case with higher-end CBD products.

The company is on the board of directors of the US Hemp Roundtable; it uses proprietary strains of hemp and processing methods; and the founder is directly involved in the development of every product, including the company’s premium-grade oils, capsules made with nano emulsified CBD, bath bombs and energy supplements.

Joy Organics has robust affiliate, wholesaler and private label programs, and the company is enjoying a great deal of growth as a result.

Background Information

Joy Smith was struggling with pain from a shoulder injury when her son recommended she try CBD. When she experienced the substance’s healing effects, she began to research the market and was appalled to find the level of inconsistency that is so rampant on today’s market.

With her husband, Todd, they founded Joy Organics based on principles of quality and safety, and now the whole family is involved.

Originally in Florida, but resettled in Colorado to be closer to the heart of their industry, the Smiths have built a CBD empire in the short time since their founding in 2018.

Joy Organics’ CBD tincture was named by top review site, CBD Hacker, as the best THC free CBD of 2020, and the company has been featured in publications from Ministry of Hemp, Vox and Forbes among others.

The hemp that Joy Organics uses for its CBD products is sourced from several farms around the United States, with its primary suppliers being in Colorado. It considers the farms and processors it works with its partners, and the company holds its products to some of the highest standards in the industry.

The CBD is extracted using a CO2 process, but Joy Organics uses a proprietary method to ensure that it contains absolutely no detectable traces of THC whatsoever.

In the end, the company has every batch of processed CBD oil tested by a third-party lab, and its testing requirements are more stringent than nearly any other company on the market today.

Shipping and Returns

Joy Organics offers free shipping to all 50 states for every order. The company uses USPS and UPS for their delivery, and the website claims that your order may take up to 5 – 10 business days due to extended delays. The length of time it takes to get your order will likely depend on where you are in relation to the company’s processing plant in Colorado. No orders are shipped outside of the United States at this time.

No one likes to wait for their CBD, but our Joy Organics CBD oil took a full eleven days to reach us. The company did ship our package to us the day after we ordered it. It’s just that it took ten days after that for our order to find its way to our mailbox once it was put in the mail.

We really appreciate the return policy for this company because it gives customers the opportunity to try out a product worry-free. If you are not completely satisfied with your product within 30 days, simply contact customer service at the provided email or through the “contact us” page on the website.

They will issue a full refund with no questions asked. Joy Organics is so concerned with customer care that they even suggest using the entire product before contacting them for a refund, because they understand that sometimes it takes a while to start feeling the benefits.

Joy Organics’ Products


Joy Organics CBD oil is one of the company’s most popular products. Extra virgin olive oil serves as the carrier for this broad spectrum formula, and its taste and texture serve as a perfect complement for the mild hemp flavor of the CBD.

For customers who would rather have some additional flavor, Joy Organics uses organic essential oils to make its tincture even more pleasing to the palate.

CBD Oil Tinctures ($29.95 – $99.95) – All tinctures come in a one ounce (30mL) size, and you can choose between 7.5mg, 15mg, 30mg, and 45mg per serving concentrations.

Flavors include aesthetically satisfying names like tranquil mint, summer lemon and orange bliss, and a simple natural flavor goes well in any food or beverage recipe you choose.

CBD Capsules

Joy Organics has formulated three varieties of softgels, and they are all created with a special nanotechnology which breaks the CBD down into smaller particles for faster absorption.

This technique increases bioavailability up to 200 percent over oil-based products, meaning that you no longer have to wait so long to feel the results, and every milligram of CBD you ingest gets used more efficiently by your body. 

CBD Softgels ($27.97 – $74.95) – CBD softgels are made to go down easily whether you have water to take them with or not. Choose between 10mg and 25mg of broad spectrum CBD per capsule, each coming in a bottle of 30.

CBD Softgels with Curcumin ($89.95) – Curcumin is a component of turmeric, which is known to reduce inflammation and pain. Its effectiveness is increased when combined with CBD, and its addition to the CBD softgels was inspired by Joy Organics founder, Joy Smith.

Through her own experience with holistic health, she found that the combination of curcumin and broad spectrum CBD was the perfect blend to support healthy functioning in her joints. The softgels with curcumin contain 25mg of broad spectrum CBD, and they come in a bottle of 30.

CBD Softgels with Melatonin for Sleep ($89.95) – People have been taking melatonin to help them sleep better for decades. CBD’s circadian-balancing effects with melatonin added will help even the most anxious sleeper get the zzz’s they deserve.

These CBD softgels contain 25mg of CBD, along with 1mg of melatonin, to help you relax into a good night’s sleep and a better day in the morning.

CBD Gummies

CBD gummies are a favorite item in the CBD world. Almost every company carries them. But not all gummies are made equally. Some have a funky texture, and some just taste funny because it’s a real challenge to cover up the pungent hemp flavor of CBD extracts.

These gummies, made with an all-new recipe, are getting enthusiastically positive reviews. They are made with clean ingredients, and customers love the texture and the taste.

Joy Organics CBD Gummies ($39.95) – At 10mg per gummy, their concentration is a little disappointing for the price. They are, however, made with premium and organic ingredients, which may contribute to the cost.

The fun flavors are the best part of these gummies, available in strawberry lemonade and green apple. Each order comes in a jar of 30.

CBD Topicals

Some people prefer to use CBD as a topical treatment, some just love the way it makes their skin glow, and others prefer to use CBD topicals to supplement their already existing CBD regimen.

Whether you want to add CBD topicals to your daily beauty routine, or you are looking for something to soothe sore, tired muscles, you are in luck with Joy Organics.

Salve Balm ($54.95 – $79.95) – The salve balm is made with a base of organic MCT oil and beeswax, infused with broad spectrum CBD oil and organic lavender and eucalyptus essential oils.

It has a light scent that customers appreciate, and it goes to work as soon as it is absorbed into the skin. Choose between a 1oz jar with 500mg of CBD, or a 2oz jar with 1000mg of CBD.

CBD Cream ($32.95) – Joy Organics CBD cream is made with 250mg of CBD, and it comes in a one-ounce pump bottle. Customers love the convenience of the pump, and the fact that this cream is unscented. It absorbs quickly and is non-greasy, perfect for your desk at the office.

CBD Sports Cream ($39.95) – This product seems to be a bargain. Four ounces of cream, infused with 400mg of CBD, with added menthol and camphor for muscular relief before, during and after a workout, and this is the best deal going in the topicals line for Joy Organics. 

Pet Products

One of the most disappointing things about most CBD pet products, is that many are only intended for dogs. Fortunately, Joy Organics also carries a CBD oil that comes in a lower dose, so you can share it with your cats, bunnies and other smaller pets. 

CBD Oil Tincture for Pets ($29.95 – $53.95) – As is expected with Joy Organics products, this CBD oil for pets is a bit on the pricier side, but it may be worth it to help your favorite furry friend feel his or her best.

Choose between 1.87mg of broad spectrum CBD per dose or 3mg of CBD per dose. You can add it to your pet’s food or water to help your anxious feline or your old, achy pooch.

CBD Dog Treats ($34.95) – Your pupper is sure to love these beef-flavored treats. Give him or her one of these and watch them perk right up. Each treat contains 2mg of CBD, tastes great, and is pet and owner-approved.

Lab Results

We like to make sure our readers get all the most important information out of our reviews, which is why we send the oils we order off to third party labs to ensure that products are labeled accurately.

We sampled Joy Organics’ 450mg broad spectrum CBD tincture; and as you can see, the bottle actually contained a little more CBD than advertised. One downfall, however, is the lackluster cannabinoid profile found in this broad spectrum formula.

Additionally, there should be absolutely no THC in this product—especially considering how much the website boasts that the Joy Organics testing process guarantees it.

This type of formula should have additional minor cannabinoids like CBC and CBN in addition to the CBG it contains, in order to produce the entourage effect that broad and full spectrum products are famous for. This one is  closer to an isolate than a broad spectrum.

Website Experience

The Joy Organics website is an absolute joy to use. It is easy to find the information you are looking for, and the site is clean and uncluttered. The company makes it immediately clear why you should purchase your products from them, noting some of the most important points that most customers are looking for right on the homepage.

The company’s namesake, Joy, is front and center on the site, and the company makes it clear just how involved she remains with everything about the family business.

Each product page contains a detailed description and lists the ingredients, along with providing the answers to frequently asked questions about the product. Certificates of analysis/lab reports for products are easy to find, which gets a thumbs up from us.

Customer Service

We were pleasantly surprised by Joy Organics’ customer service. Carolyn, their Chief of Customer Satisfaction, responded to our email within hours of sending it. Her reply was relevant, personalized, and written with the utmost clarity.

She was also straight to the point, which you don’t always get with support representatives. We appreciate that a lot, as we’ve encountered some who danced around giving direct answers.

Final Verdict

After only a couple of years, Joy Organics has grown to one of the better-known and recognized companies in the CBD industry. The company has a couple of brick-and-mortar shops, and vibrant affiliate, wholesale and white label programs. It cares deeply about the quality of its products, holding the purity of its CBD to very high standards and using premium, organic ingredients.

This makes products a little on the pricey side, but you are paying extra for the security of knowing you are making your purchase from a company that cares. Joy Organics has been featured in major publications, the company is on the board of directors for the US Hemp Roundtable, and customers have nothing but good things to say about its products and service.

Even though we would like to see a more robust broad spectrum formula with no THC, along with faster shipping times from this company, Joy Organics should be at the top of your list when you are looking for a transparent CBD product you can trust.
