Veritas Farms SCORE

EXCELLENT

(4.45)

Veritas Farms has one of the largest selections of products we have seen for a company that does everything in-house. We appreciate what is referred to in the industry as a vertically-integrated agricultural company, because it allows for full traceability. The full spectrum formula—though not particularly robust—is a potent formula, with a strong concentration of at least a couple of the minor cannabinoids that contribute to the entourage effect.

Veritas Farms is committed to sustainable farming and good manufacturing processes, and it shows in the company’s level of traceability and transparency. This is one of the few companies on our list that does everything from seed to sale in-house, and the company locally sources everything it cannot do on its own farm or in its greenhouses. 

You will be pleased to find all the standard CBD products like CBD oils, capsules, and gummies from the Veritas Farms online store; but they also have a few surprises like premium CBD skincare products and even CBD for your furry friends.

Additionally, Veritas Farms is a trusted company, with selections for sale at mainstream stores like Rite-Aid, CVS, Kroger, and Winn-Dixie.

The company’s shipping is a little slow, but it is free on orders of $100 or more. Prices are average for a CBD company of this caliber.

We appreciate that we can easily find out everything we want to know about Veritas Farms right from the website, and that the company has such a high level of oversight for every single part of the process.

When you want to know the whole story behind your CBD products, Veritas Farms is the company for you.

Quick Summary

Pros:

  • Full transparency and traceability
  • Potent full spectrum products
  • Everything from seed to sale is done in-house
  • All-natural growing practices
  • Can be found in mainstream brick-and-mortar stores

Cons:

  • Not very many CBD isolate products and no broad spectrum
  • Full spectrum profile is not as robust as we like to see

Background Information

Founded by Erdius Sanabria and Alexander Salgado in 2011, Veritas Farms has grown large enough to be a publicly-traded company, and it is sold in brick-and-mortar drug stores across the US.

The company is headquartered in Florida, and its farm and processing plant are in Colorado. This raises a few questions about the company’s ability to provide oversight, but the team is made up of some of the top professionals in the industry.

A recent addition is the VP of Research and Development, Doctor Dan Connors, who has an extensive background ensuring the safety of the US food and medical supply through his time with the FDA.

The company has been recognized by Forbes, The New York Times, and GQ. It had a write-up in Men’s Health and it has won numerous awards for its CBD oil and its pet products.

Veritas Farms grows most of the hemp it uses in its products right on its own farm and greenhouses in Pueblo, Colorado. Instead of growing from seed, it clones plants in order to maintain strain quality and consistency.

The ethanol extraction process the company uses is less expensive than the solvent-free CO2 method, but the lab results found on each product page confirm that there is never any solvent residue in its products.

Shipping and Returns

Veritas Farms makes no statements about processing or shipping times on its website, but shipping on all orders of $100 or more is free. The company does not currently ship internationally.

It does, however, ship to all fifty states. Cost of shipping for orders less than $100 is calculated at checkout, and you can choose between Standard, Priority Mail, or Priority Mail Express. 

We order our CBD from the companies we review just like any other customer, so we can get the full, honest experience. Veritas Farms processed our order the following business day after we placed it, and it took six full days for our package to be delivered to us through the Standard Mail option.

Unfortunately, Veritas Farms does not offer a satisfaction guarantee. This is not unusual for a CBD company, as only about a third or fewer companies will offer a refund once your product has been opened.

If you have not opened your product, you have 30 days to return it in its original condition for a refund of the purchase price minus shipping.

Veritas Farms’ Products

CBD Oil

The CBD oil from this company is some of the highest quality you will find on the market. While the full spectrum profile could use a little more THC, and we would like to see some CBN present as well, this is one of the more potent formulas.

Additionally, the oil is made only with the aerial parts of the hemp plant (flower and leaves), and with organic fractionated coconut (MCT) oil. Flavored variations also contain organic stevia, and natural flavorings or essential oils.

Full Spectrum CBD Tincture ($29.99 – $199.99) – There is only one kind of CBD oil to be found from this company, but the options in dosing and flavors create a great deal of flexibility.

Choose between concentrations ranging between 250mg and 2000mg, in any of four different flavors. Or you can go with the unflavored option if you like adding the oil to your favorite food or beverages.

The company also sells large format tincture, which is just another way of saying that you can buy more than 30mL of CBD at a time.

Choose between unflavored and peppermint for a 100mL bottle containing 1000mg of CBD. The dosing is 10mg of CBD per dropper, approximately the same as a 30mL bottle containing 300mg of CBD.

CBD Capsules

Full spectrum CBD oils typically have a very strong flavor, even when you try to cover it up with fruity essential oils. While some people enjoy the pungent taste, it is not for everyone. Additionally, sometimes you may need a more convenient format to travel with.

We love Veritas Farms’ CBD capsules because they are totally vegan. While almost all CBD oils are vegan, not all capsules are because they are typically made with gelatin. Veritas Farms has taken the extra step of using plant-based capsules so vegans can get their daily dose guilt-free.

Full Spectrum CBD Capsules ($29.99 – $69.99) – We appreciate the fact that there is a lower dosing option of 10mg per capsule and a more potent dosing option of 25mg per capsule. These are made with the same formula as the unflavored CBD tincture from this company, and each bottle contains 30 capsules.

CBD Gummies

Veritas Farms CBD gummies are made with CBD isolate, so you can enjoy them without worry if you are concerned about exposure to THC. If you want to get your daily dose of CBD in the form of a tasty snack, this is the product for you.

The only concern we have, is that the product description is not entirely clear for each variation of gummy.

Wild Berry CBD Gummies ($5.99 – $34.99) – These are your standard delicious CBD gummies. Unfortunately, they are not vegan like the capsules are.

They come in just one flavor, though there is another flavor listed in the product description that does not come up as an option for ordering. You can choose between a sample-sized pack of five gummies, each containing 7.5mg of CBD; or select the full-size pack of 30 gummies, each containing 5mg of CBD.

Wild Berry CBD Gummies + Melatonin ($34.99) – This is where the packaging and product description are inconsistent. The ingredients for these are not listed anywhere, and there is no dosing information either.

If you look at the photo of the package, it says there are 270mg of CBD and 30 gummies per bag. These are also infused with melatonin to help you get a good night’s sleep, but it is unclear how much melatonin.

CBD Topicals

If you love using CBD topically, then you are in luck with Veritas Farms. The company offers a comprehensive selection of items covering everything from balms and roll-ons, to wrinkle and blemish control and eye cream.

Full Spectrum CBD Salve ($39.99 – $94.99) – When you want to really get a good dose of CBD directly to your biggest problem areas, this is your salve. Made with all organic ingredients, it is simply CBD, coconut oil, beeswax, and essential oils.

Choose between unscented, lavender eucalyptus, or cooling menthol, in 400mg or 1000mg concentrations. It is unclear if they are the same size, or if the larger amount of CBD correlates with a larger sized container.

Full Spectrum CBD Sports Cream ($29.99) – Cruelty and paraben-free, this sports cream was designed by compound pharmacists in order to provide quick, powerful relief. This cream is non-greasy and fragrance-free, and it is infused with a powerful 600mg of CBD in a two-ounce bottle.

Veritas Farms Skincare Line ($32.99 – $36.99) – Relatively inexpensive for a premium skincare line, these products are intended to rejuvenate and renew your skin.

Choose between cucumber eye cream, hyaluronic day cream, rejuvenating night cream, and mattifying blemish cream. Or, find all four products in the full kit for $116. All are made with the full spectrum CBD formula. 

Pet Products

The Veritas Farms pet product line is wild. It’s pretty common for CBD companies to carry CBD oil or treats formulated for your four-legged bestie, but this company carries anything you can think of, from CBD tincture, to hot spot oil, to a CBD ear cleaning system. 

Full Spectrum CBD Oil For Pets ($29.99) – This full spectrum CBD oil is just like the stuff made for humans, with the same ingredients. This one has 200mg of CBD oil and comes in bacon or tuna flavors to satisfy even the pickiest pet.

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Infused Dog Treats ($29.99) – Whether your pooch is stressed, itchy, or in pain, there is a treat that will fix it. We are unclear on what ingredients Veritas Farms has added in order to enhance specific effects, but these treats start with a base of 10mg of full spectrum CBD in a bag of 30. You can choose between calming, skin and allergy, or joint health chews.

Ear Cleaning System Infused with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil ($52.99) – Now you can clean your dog’s ears in no time, with this specially formulated cleanser designed to draw out dirt and oils, softening and protecting  delicate skin. Comes with special cleaning tips made to gently get into all those crevices and get your pup’s ears healthy and itch-free.

Lab Results

When you are deciding which CBD companies you want to try, it is important to have all the facts in order to make a fully informed decision. We always send a sample of oil off to an independent lab, to confirm that the products are labeled accurately and that they are free of pesticides, solvent residue, and heavy metals.

We had the full spectrum 250mg CBD tincture tested, and you can find the full results below. In summary, the amount of CBD in the bottle was nearly nine percent less than what was on the label.

Since it is generally acceptable to be off by up to 10 percent, this one is riding the line. For the lower concentration of CBD, the full spectrum profile is narrow but potent.

We generally like to see a little more THC along with the presence of all the cannabinoids listed; and this one is missing CBN. However, the amount of additional minor actives makes it a very good full spectrum formula anyway.

Website Experience

The Veritas Farms website is excellent and easy to use … up to a point. The company does have some inconsistencies with their product labeling and ingredients lists. Particularly for the gummies and the pet product line. Products are overall well-organized, but there is no search option unless you click on “All Products” in the drop-down menu.

That will take you to a page where you can enter search fields or even just enter the text for the items you are looking for.

We like that the pet products do have a recommended dosing chart by weight, and that the blog has some of the most informative content out of every company we have reviewed so far.

Customer Service

Veritas Farms is among the best brands in providing their customers with quality customer service. They responded to our email within hours. 

Not only did they answer our questions, but they also provided additional information about their farming and testing processes.

Veritas Farms’ fast and friendly customer support is certain to give customers confidence that their products are made by a knowledgeable and caring company.

Final Verdict

Veritas Farms has one of the largest selections of products we have seen for a company that does everything in-house. We appreciate what is referred to in the industry as a vertically-integrated agricultural company, because it allows for full traceability.

One unique element that allows for especially good levels of consistency, is the fact that the hemp the company uses is cloned, rather than grown, from seed.

This keeps strain and genetics exactly the same from plant to plant. Though there are a couple issues with product labeling on the website, this is one of the most transparent companies out there.

The full spectrum formula—though not particularly robust—is a potent formula, with a strong concentration of at least a couple of the minor cannabinoids that contribute to the entourage effect.

Pricing is average for a company that puts so much effort into ensuring a quality product, and we think your money will be well-spent on just about anything you buy from Veritas Farms.
