The accuracy variances for these Blue Forest Farms products concerning potency are excellent, with four checked products testing well below the acceptable 10% variance limit allowed and one product testing slightly over at 12%. One of their products passed standard purity testing; however, purity lab test results for the other four ordered products were unavailable at this time.

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 2016, Blue Forest Farms was founded on a 200 acre Colorado farm with a mission statement of “operating on the cutting edge, disrupting the industry and changing the way we think of hemp,” according to the company website. They firmly believe that hemp derived CBD should be of the highest quality and should be accessible to everyone on the planet, since it is a naturally abundant crop.

    Transparency

    Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are very close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products in my Blue Forest Farms order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency, but only one product was tested for purity due to their USDA certified organic designation, according to the company.

    All of the third party lab results available for the Blue Forest Farms CBD product catalog are located under a centralized “Quality Control” link, located in the main menu, as seen here:

    Accuracy

    Using the Blue Forest Farms “Lab Reports” link under resources and the centralized “Quality Control” link on the main menu, it was easy to match the products with the independent third party lab reports provided once customer service supplied me with missing batch numbers:

    As far as the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 100 mg certified organic, full spectrum pet treats tested with 112 total mg of CBD or 5.6 mg per treat, which is a 12% accuracy variance and slightly higher than the acceptable 10% limit. The next highest variance was found in the 750 mg softgels, which tested at 54.81 mg of CBD per serving size of two softgels for a total of 822.15 mg of CBD. This is a variance of 9.62% and below the 10% limit allowed.

    The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 600 mg broad spectrum, organic Vanilla Spice tincture, which tested with 598.94 total mg of CBD. This is a accuracy variance of .17% and well below the 10% variance limit allowed, as seen here in the COA provided online:

    All products were confirmed by independent third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC or a non detectable amount, and all purity tests for one checked product were passed. However, to the best of our knowledge, purity test lab results for the other three ordered products were unavailable at this time.

    Reputation

    According to the company, Blue Forest Farms has combined over 40 years of experience to assemble their team of hemp farmers, botanists, and CBD extraction specialists. They are dedicated to CBD joy, honor, passion, and lifestyle, per the “BFF Difference” section posted online. They donate at least 10% of their net profits to a variety of local and global nonprofit organizations, in order to give back to their community and their planet conscious consumers.

    Leafreport’s market reports score

    Pricing report – Blue Forest Farms was listed in 82 price rank C on our 2021 pricing report. In this report, we checked the prices of the 137 brands in the industry and compared for each category the cheapest and most expensive products.

    Manufacturing Process

    Blue Forest Farms is a legal, authorized grower of premium, certified organic U.S. hemp, sourced from their Colorado farm which customers can explore online. Their full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate hemp derived CBD products are extracted using a CO2 process before being formulated with easily digestible 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 Blue Forest Farms 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 online.

    Blue Forest Farms CBD Tinctures Overview

    Blue Forest Farms offers premium quality, certified organic CBD products that are available in full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate tinctures, topicals, softgels, edibles, and pet items. Their products range in CBD content from 5 mg to 5000 mg, and are higher priced than comparable premium, certified organic brands, with an overall average price point of $.13 per mg of CBD.

    These CO2 extracted, certified organic tinctures are offered in broad spectrum, full spectrum, and isolate formulations. The company suggests that consumers start with a dose of 1 full dropper, which is 1 ml. There are no visible measuring marks on the dropper, however, making precise dosing tricky. The tinctures are formulated with MCT oil for easy digestion, and are offered in a natural variety. They are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use, or a tincture can be added to beverages or food.
