Methodology

  • Read our methodology for more details about ranking and our review process.

    Data Collection and Rating

    In our review process, we receive CBD products directly from the brand to personally review ourselves, so we can give you an accurate idea of the packaging, potency, taste, smell, feel, and overall experience of each product. We also discuss the company’s shipping and returns policy.
    Another important step we take is reviewing each individual product for details such as the certificate of analysis to assess the CBD level and CBD variance, THC level, and contaminants.
    We take all factors into account and give each CBD brand and each CBD product a score for each parameter.
    All of the information we collect is generated into a concise, easy to read review and put into our extensive database. Keep in mind, our reviews are never intended to substitute or act as medical advice.

    Product DataBase

    Our database collects key information for each product, including CBD product prices, potencies, third-party lab test results, flavors, additional ingredients, hemp quality, extract types, product variety, and more.
    We then use all of this combined data to give each brand and product a standardized rating out of five points.

    Brand Review Process

    There are many factors we consider when we review the quality, integrity and products of a CBD brand. We rate each brand on several factors including:

    • Transparency & accuracy. It is important that a CBD brand is forthcoming with who makes up their team, their mission, manufacturing process, and lab reports. Also, we look for the accuracy of the CBD and THC levels in the products’ lab reports.
    • Hemp quality. Hemp quality can be a deciding factor between a good CBD brand and a great CBD brand. We look for organic and sustainable farming methods with attention to detail in each manufacturing step. 
    • The variety of products they offer. We like to see several CBD product types and flavors.
    • Customer service. It is essential that each CBD company has multiple ways to connect to customer service to ask questions. We look for speedy and complete responses.
    • Price and discounts. Competitive pricing is an important aspect of being a top-rated CBD brand. We also look for discount options and ways to save on your order.

    Market Reports

    Another way Leafreport stands out from other CBD review websites is our evidence-based market reports. For each one, we purchase different types of CBD products and send them for independent lab testing to check whether their levels of CBD and other cannabinoids match the label.

    Information Updates

    Writers and editors conduct our reviews and our database on an annual basis but continually make updates throughout the year. We maintain frequent contact with brands and highlight any changes in offerings.

    The Review Team

    Our review team is made up of a wide chain of qualified CBD review writers, some with medical degrees, some with statistics backgrounds, others with ample experience in the CBD arena. Each and every one of our CBD reviews are approved by our medical reviewer before being published on our website to ensure all information is accurate. 

    Conflicts of Interest

    While Leafreport does have partnerships with many of the reviewed brands, we manage potential conflicts of interest by maintaining a wall between our content and business operations. This wall is designed to prevent our writers and the review process from being influenced or impacted by our business partnerships. This way, all reviews can provide an unbiased review that serves the interests of our users.

    About the Company 

    Established in 2020 in Wyoming, Able CBD is a 100% organic brand committed to their customers and to producing quality, effective CBD sourced from Kentucky farms.  The company was founded by “experts in the seed-science, agminomy, farming, manufacturing, business and healthcare” industries. 

    Transparency

    Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are identical to the contents of each final product a customer receives. 

    Able CBD does not have a centralized lab testing hub, but each product page includes the independent, third party potency lab results for the corresponding product. All of the products in our Able order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency. Purity tests for foreign contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, microbials and mycotoxins were currently unavailable for products at this time due to their organic designation, according to customer service. 

    Accuracy

    Using each corresponding product page, it was easy to match four of the ordered products with the independent third party lab results for potency. As far as the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 750 mg sleep tablets tested with 678 total mg of CBD, or 22.6 mg per 25 mg tablet, which is a 9.6% accuracy variance and under the acceptable 10% limit. The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 750 mg gelcaps, which tested with 744 total mg of CBD, or 24.8 mg per serving size of 1 gelcap. This is an accuracy variance of .8% and well below the 10% variance limit allowed. All checked products were confirmed by independent third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC, or no THC was detected.  

    Reputation

    Able CBD is a vertically integrated company, meaning they control each step of the hemp-derived CBD process from seed and cultivation to production and sale. They manufacture all of their organic CBD products in a GMP-certified facility, and they use sustainable and organic agricultural practices.  

    Manufacturing Process 

    Able CBD is a legal, authorized grower of premium U.S. hemp, sourced from organic farms in Kentucky and using organic ingredients. Their hemp-derived, isolate CBD products are extracted using a CO2 process before being formulated with easily digestible, organic MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability. 

    After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is an important safety and quality control measure utilized by Able to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents. They conduct independent potency lab testing for all of their products and post the available results on their website on each corresponding product page. 

    Able offers premium quality CBD products that are available in isolate tinctures, topicals, gelcaps, and dissolving tongue strips. Their products range from 25 mg to 2750 mg and are lower than average priced when compared to other brands, with an overall price point average of $.07 per mg of isolate CBD. 

    Able CBD Tinctures Overview

    These CO2 extracted, isolate, organic tinctures by Able are formulated with organic MCT oil for faster bioavailability, and are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use. They can also be added to beverages or food, per the company website.
