The Bottom Line

My review of Blue Moon is very good. They are a premium CBD brand based on the quality of their hemp, the impressive accuracy of their third party lab test potency results, their complete transparency throughout the website, and the sheer variety of products and potencies offered. In light of these benefits to the consumer, Blue Moon still has a lower price point than other comparable brands in the market.

Blue Moon publishes the quality and potency, but no other pertinent third party lab results for each product directly under the “Lab Results” link. Before purchase, a Blue Moon customer knows the precise potency for each desired product, which offers buyers a measure of quality assurance right from the start. The company results for their purity tests, though, are unavailable online at this time.

They carry a wider range of CBD potencies and far more delivery methods than comparable brands, offering full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate products with 14 mg to 3,000 mg of CBD. Their whole hemp flower ranges from 12% to 16% potency per gram. Their vast product catalog includes CBD gummies, topicals, oral sprays, tinctures, whole hemp flower sold by the gram, shatter, gel caps, and pet products for dogs and cats. There’s a broad variety of products for consumers to choose from.

Their prices range from $9.90 up to $149.00, which equals a low $.04 to $.05 price per mg of CBD for their tinctures, e-liquids, shatter, and gel caps, and a $.07 to $.08 price point average for their CBD gummies and pet products. They have a $.21 price per mg CBD average for their oral sprays. Their highest price point is $4.37 per mg of CBD for the hemp whole flower. However, excluding the flower prices, their average price point is $.08, meaning that Blue Moon does have lower priced CBD products than other comparable mid-range brands in the market.

They offer free shipping with a $99 minimum purchase, and a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee on all products. The accuracy variances for these Blue Moon products are all well below the 10% variance allowed. Products, however, were not tested for standard residuals such as solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, or other foreign contaminants. Blue Moon did not show the results for all standard tests performed on CBD products.

Pros: Cons:

  • Subscription savings – AutoShip option
  • $25 Refer-a-Friend and Rewards programs
  • 35% First responder, military and veteran discounts
  • $99 minimum order for free shipping
  • Not GMP certified

  • Inadequate testing for contaminants

About the Company

All of the products at Blue Moon are sourced from one vendor in Kentucky. They claim to control the process from seed to sale ensuring customers have only the best CBD on the market, according to their website. All of the Blue Moon CBD formulations are plant based and use organic, non-GMO ingredients, when possible, although they are not considered certified organic. According to the company, they conduct independent third party lab testing for all of their products to validate that the CBD quantity stated on the label is actually in the contents of the bottle.

The mission of Blue Moon Hemp is to educate the public on the variety of nutritional and health benefits that are associated with CBD rich hemp oil. Their goal is to help the market understand that, when it comes to their high grade CBD hemp oil, less is often more, which will help consumers to save money, according to the company.

It’s clear that Blue Moon Hemp has very good intentions when it comes to their customers. The main priority of the brand is to combine top quality CBD oil and affordability, and the reason they are able to do this – as stated on the website – is because of their “strong buying power.” This is a perk that they pass down to consumers. Blue Moon Hemp CBD is completely dedicated to making it as easy as possible for consumers to use their natural, plant derived products.

Transparency

The Blue Moon website contains comprehensive information on how their products are sourced and formulated. The company clearly explains the difference between products with full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate CBD.

Customers of this brand will immediately notice that official lab results are visible on every product page online through a link at the bottom of the page, and are available for download. They publish all third party test results for all products in their centralized “Lab Results” webpage, and customers can easily switch tabs between all the different products available to CBD consumers.

Independent CBD testing is another important quality and safety control measure to ensure what is on the label in terms of CBD and THC content matches what is in the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products in my Blue Moon order were tested for the standard CBD and THC potency and terpene profiles.

However, there were no readily available lab results concerning solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, or other foreign contaminants for the TruBlu Natural tincture, the TruBlu Berry tincture, the TruBlu Bacon dog tincture, the 250 mg gummies, or the extra strength 500 mg Limonene salve, so none of the Blue Moon products in this order showed results for all of the standard CBD tests. Each of these categories is important for determining the potency, efficacy and safety of CBD products, and Blue Moon has some room for improvement in this area, in my opinion.

Accuracy

This company practices the best techniques at all stages of their CBD process, harvesting, extraction, distillation, formulation, and packaging. Their CBD oil is sourced from non-GMO hemp, complete with a broad spectrum of cannabinoids for maximizing the entourage effect.

The test results posted online were easy to match exactly to the batch numbers on my product labels, using the convenient “Lab Results” tab under the “Resources” tab online. Customers can also scan the QR code available on each product’s label, and they’ll be taken directly to the lab results on the main company website to enter the batch number clearly listed on the label as well.

The lab report for my batch of their 500 mg TruBlu Natural tincture had a 7.36% variance in CBD with 536.8 mg, and a non detectable THC level. The 250 mg CBD gummies tested at 248 mg of CBD, which is a 1.5% variance. These two products are well under the 10% variance allowed, but these two products were not tested for microbes, chemicals, and all other contaminants either, and they are clearly listed as “Not tested” on the corresponding lab reports.

Their 2 oz, or 60 ml, extra strength Limonene salve from the topical CBD line was labeled at 500 mg. The lab reports showed a 1.5% variance in CBD content at 492.5 mg, with a total of 0% THC. This product was also not tested for solvents, residues, heavy metals, or other foreign materials. The 500 mg container of Limonene salve was also well below the 10% variance allowed, and all products in the order tested under the legal 0.3% THC limit, as clearly advertised on the labels.

As noted previously, while the accuracy variances for these Blue Moon products are all well below the 10% variance allowed as far as potency, none were tested for standard contaminants, so the Blue Moon products in this order did not show the results for all available CBD purity tests.

Reputation

Blue Moon was established in 2016 and their CBD is from a single source in Kentucky. According to their website, they pride themselves at Blue Moon on the knowledge of their hemp’s whereabouts at all times, so the conditions can be closely monitored and easily controlled. They want to bring customers the original quality, non-GMO, vegan CBD derived from their carefully nurtured hemp crop.

Their customer service is outstanding, responding within one business day, and they stand behind their products 100%. If customers are not satisfied, Blue Moon will easily exchange or refund any purchase with no questions asked. They have a plethora of customer reviews and testimonials posted voluntarily on the bottom of each product page online.

Manufacturing Process

They are a legal, authorized grower of premium organic hemp that contains pure, high quality hemp oil. Blue Moon sources top quality hemp from one vendor with farms in Kentucky, United States, and they use their proprietary, certified organic phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp to ensure their CBD products are more effective than other comparable premium quality CBD brands.

They use a supercritical CO2 extraction process for all of their products, and all of Blue Moon CBD products are formulated with organic MCT oil as the carrier. Medium Chain Triglycerides are a type of easily digestible saturated fatty acids scientifically known to allow maximum bioavailability in the body, and are preferred for CBD product formulation.

All of their products carry advice to consumers concerning storage. They advise on every product page that users should store Blue Moon products in a cool, dry place away from excessive heat, light, and humidity. This should be done in order to preserve quality. All products also contain a visible expiration date on the label or container to ensure freshness. In addition, all products had tamper resistant packaging for the buyer’s peace of mind.

Range of Products

They offer a premium quality line of broad spectrum and isolate CBD, as well as isolate CBG. Their products include tinctures, gummies, e-liquid, oral sprays, shatter, hemp flower, and salves, along with pet and gel cap products.

All of their products ensure maximum bioavailability through the CO2 extraction, which is the cleanest extraction method recognized in the industry. According to the company website, customers can be assured that Blue Moon exceeds industry standards in this department by utilizing all natural, organic plant ingredients to manufacture all of their CBD products, whenever possible.

This additional quality assurance can be confirmed by viewing any of their lab reports posted as a “Lab Results” link throughout the company website, at the bottom under the “Resources” tab. Blue Moon products all contained under the legal 0.3% THC limit, and the required FDA disclaimer appears on every webpage.

CBD Capsules

There are only two simple, natural ingredients in these gel caps: organic MCT oil and organic, non-GMO hemp CBD oil, and the company advertises that these gel caps are an ideal method for taking CBD for people with sensitive palates or sensitive stomachs. They tested at a 0% THC level. Each bottle comes in your choice of 750 mg or 1500 mg potency, and each contains 60 gel caps. Each gel cap has 25 mg for a total of 30 gel caps in the 750 potency and 60 gel caps in the 1500 mg CBD potency.

These broad spectrum gel caps are made with 100% natural, organic CBD, with full tracking from the “seed to sale,” according to the company. Their suggested serving size is 1 gel cap in the morning (25 mg) and 1 in the evening; however, the company is careful to note that everyone is different and unique, so CBD dosages may vary. Suggested uses for these oral gel caps by Blue Moon are to deliver energy for your active lifestyle and to help promote a restful night’s sleep, but neither of these outcomes are guaranteed by the company.

There is an explicit warning by the company that these gel caps are not to be used during pregnancy or lactation or if you have a medical condition that requires taking pharmaceutical medication. They further admonish consumers to talk with a medical professional before incorporating CBD products into your wellness routine. They also advise users to keep this and all CBD products away from children.

Blue Moon sources from one U.S. organic hemp vendor in Kentucky who commits to regenerative farming methods when possible, according to the company. These broad spectrum tinctures have no artificial flavors or sweeteners, and are offered in three varieties.

The 500, 1000, 2000, or 3000 mg tinctures suggest a 1 ml dose, and come in a 30 ml size. There are clearly noted measuring marks on the dropper, but they are faint in color and are tricky to see in some of the more light colored varieties. The flavored varieties have all natural flavors added during formulation, like peppermint and berry.

The wide variety of available potencies allows customers the option of low, middle, and high range doses of CBD. Suggested uses by the company of these CO2 extracted tinctures include adding them into smoothies and shakes or other beverages, and for a part of your “daily wellness routine.” These tinctures are to be taken orally or sublingually, and can help support or begin an active lifestyle, as noted by the company. These broad spectrum CBD tinctures tested at 0% THC.

CBD & Hemp Vape E-Liquids

While consumers may shy away from e-liquids, these 30 ml Blue Moon products use all vegan, organic, non-GMO vegetable glycerin, Bio-Propylene glycol, CBD, and natural flavoring. They tested at 0% THC and can be used with any vaping device, according to the website. A consistently clean supercritical CO2 extraction process is used for this product.

These 1000 mg products are fully traceable by the company from extraction, through formation, through final sale to the consumer. These can also be mixed with your favorite other e liquids. This product is not recommended for ingestion, only inhalation, and the company further advises that it be stored in a cool dry place away from excessive heat light and humidity in order to preserve the pure quality.

Suggested uses by the company are to use as needed throughout the day for an even distribution of CBD throughout your body all day long. There is a special warning on this product page that this should not be used during pregnancy or lactation. In these cases, the company strongly advises that you discontinue use of the product and talk to your medical professional.

CBD Gummies

These Blue Moon assorted fruit gummies are tasty and juicy with every bite. They are for oral use only. The gummies come in a plastic sealed, tamper resistant container. They are very colorful in appearance and come in a variety of shapes and flavors.

The ingredients for these gummies include whole plant hemp extract, as well as proprietary nutraceuticals and botanicals for optimal CBD consumer health, according to the company. They use all natural flavor, with no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors.

These gluten free and non-GMO edible gummies come in potencies from 100 mg to 1000 mg, in sizes ranging from 2 oz up to 22 oz, and they come in an almost clear plastic container so customers can see the product inside. Supercritical CO2 extraction is used for these gummies.

The convenience and small size of these gummies offers the buyer a way to discreetly enhance “optimal wellness” during daytime or nighttime, but no specific suggested uses are provided. While a serving size is 1 to 2 gummies, according to the company, consumers can take as many of the broad spectrum fruity gummies as desired, as no THC was detected in the third party lab results.

CBD Salves

Their CO2 extracted topical salves deliver targeted relief to areas large or small. The company infuses CBD into every salve, and this product was the winner of a 2019 “Best Hemp Company” award for clean and effective CBD topicals.

Suggested uses by the company are to nourish sensitive skin or to provide relief from sore and painful muscles, and they carefully note that the skin is the largest endocannabinoid receptor in the body. These are offered in potencies of 500 mg or 1000 mg, and in a variety of scents to choose from, such as eucalyptus and limonene or citrus. These tested at a 0% THC level.

CBD For Pets

Blue Moon Hemp CBD for Pets products are designed with “your dog’s best life in mind,” according to the company. Suggested uses on the website for the dog tinctures include helping to keep your dog calm and relaxed, promoting healthy hips and joints, relieving stress and anxiety, and encouraging a healthier coat.

These deliciously flavored 250 to 1000 mg dog tinctures and 5 mg individual pet treats are supercritical CO2 extracted for maximum absorption in your pet’s body. The all natural, hemp derived CBD extracts deliver high bioavailability, meaning your pet can use the CBD quickly and efficiently in the body. The company advises that these can be used orally, either directly in the mouth, or as a pet food or treat additive.

Hemp Flower

Blue Moon’s non-GMO, organic hemp flower is sustainably and responsibly grown on small farms, in order to offer the highest quality hemp compared to other comfortable brands in the market. According to the company, these CBD flower buds are loaded with naturally occurring terpenes and phytocannabinoids.

All of their CBG and CBD flower products are grown in the United States using non-GMO seeds right from the start. Each of these full spectrum, whole hemp flower strains contains less than 0.3% THC in compliance with the 2018 Farm Bill, and all tested below the legal limit in third party testing. There is no extraction process with whole flower hemp; the consumer receives the hemp flower bud directly from the stem, and no suggested uses are given.

CBD Oral Sprays

These 120 mg oral CBD sprays are the easiest and most flexible option for new consumers to try the effects of CBD in their system. These are specified by the company for oral use only, directly warning consumers not to spray in eyes. They come in a conveniently sized, skinny and tall spray bottle that contains a purified water base, and the oral sprays are offered in three flavors. Consumers can expect to get at least 8 sprays per container, according to the company.

The ingredients formulated with their CO2 extracted CBD are carefully selected for potency and health benefit, including naturally occurring vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin A and fatty acids as well as ginkgo, licorice, and ginger root. Blue Moon also adds caffeine and taurine into this specific CBD formulation, which have both been scientifically proven to help increase energy and decrease fatigue.

Suggested use by the company is to spray 1 to 2 pumps orally into the mouth, for a maximum of 4 times per day. They clearly recommend that users hold the spray in the mouth for five seconds before swallowing. This oral spray delivers a high level, potent dose of CBD into your system through the mouth, allowing for the most effective and quickest absorption by the body.

CBD Shatters

These unique CBD products come in a “shatter” form, meaning that they made from a sheet of CO2 extracted CBD product, then “shatter” it into pieces for sale in this category. Blue Moon uses a proprietary technique that allows them to purify the CBD and render it nearly intact, at a highly potent 99.6% CBD isolate purity.

According to the company, these 1000 mg CBD shatter products are made with all natural terpenes from a variety of cannabis strains in order to give either the energizing effects of a sativa strain or the relaxing effects of an Indica strain. This product is all natural, with a non detectable 0% THC level, and the shatter costs a minimal $.04 per mg of CBD. It is sold by the gram in three size options. No specific suggested uses are listed online.

Buying Experience

The ordering process was easy on the Blue Moon website, but the website is a bit cluttered with several pages under each product category to scroll through, plus options in flavor and potency to select, before purchasing. Some of the pertinent customer information is scattered throughout each separate webpage with some links appearing on the bottom of the page and some links appearing through a link on the menu button. There is a user friendly main menu, and a “Shop All” link gives customers direct access to their entire product catalog at one time without having to click on separate links.

Each product page provides comprehensive product information for each item in that category, as well as suggested uses. All of the third party lab results for the CBD product line, as mentioned earlier, are posted under the “Certificate of Analysis” link on each product page, as well as on the central “Lab Results” hub link on the main website.

If consumer questions arise, the Blue Moon customer service team is available Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm, via email or phone to consult about orders, products, or consumer savings. In addition, you can talk to a live person when you call their toll free phone number, as noted online:

Customer support was contacted using their online “Contact” form concerning where to locate the COA hub for their products. Their team replied on the same business day with the information that I requested, guiding me to the correct webpage. The comprehensive COA link is located at the bottom of any page on the main website under the “Resources” tab, as seen here:

All orders get free shipping with a $99 order minimum, or shipping costs are calculated upon checkout. The order was processed in about 2 days before being shipped via UPS. Most orders will ship the same or next business day from the time of processing. A shipping confirmation email with a tracking number was received to follow its progress.

The order arrived in a brown box within 3 business days of placing it online, and the plain package received was discreet. Others would not be able to see the CBD company name on the outside of the traditional brown UPS package. The products were securely packaged and the package contained individually bubble wrapped items. The edible gummies and salve were wrapped in a light resistant, silver bubble wrap packet with a mini cold pack inside to prevent melting or stickiness. Blue Moon CBD products are all packaged in nearly opaque, blue glass and dark plastic containers.

Products Reviewed

TruBlu Natural CBD Tincture, 500 mg, 30 ml

This 500 mg Natural CBD oil is light amber in color and was thin in viscosity, but not drippy. It has clearly labeled measuring marks on the dropper, but they are light orange in color and they blend in a little with the color of the oil.

This CO2 extracted sublingual or oral use product does have a slight herbal aftertaste, but it does not taste grassy at all, as many comparable “natural” tinctures do. The taste is very smooth and easy to swallow after holding it under your tongue for 60 seconds, as recommended by the company.

TruBlu Berry CBD Tincture, 500 mg, 30 ml

This oil is a dark amber in color and was thin in viscosity as well, but not messy and did not run down the sides of the bottle or the dropper. It has clearly labeled, light colored measuring marks on the dropper, but this sublingual or oral tincture is darker, so the measuring marks do stand out better with this product for easier reading by the consumer.

This 500 mg Berry CBD tincture product has a refreshing, lightly fruity, assorted berry flavor. It is easy to hold under the tongue due to the absence of ethyl alcohol in the supercritical CO2 extraction process. Neither this tincture, nor the Natural tincture were tested for solvents, residues, or other foreign contaminants.

TruBlu Bacon CBD Dog Tincture, 1000 mg, 30 ml

While I did not try this personally, this tincture smells exactly like cooked bacon. This 1000 mg formula is specified for dogs only, per the company, who also offer a cat only tincture as well. My dog immediately perked up when she heard the tamper resistant lid twist open, and thoroughly seemed to enjoy the bacon flavoring.

I had no problem getting my dog to take it orally; however, the company also suggests adding it to your dog’s food, if necessary. It is specifically not recommended for use on an empty stomach, as clearly noted by the company. This product was not tested for any contaminants, which falls short of other comparable brands in the current market.

CBD Gummies, 250 mg, 6 oz

These tasty assorted flavor gummies come in a variety of shapes and flavors, ranging from sweet to sour. They are a typical gummy consistency and are not sticky in the container, loosely sliding into your hand. They are brightly colorful, and at 7 mg of CBD per serving size (1 gummy), they are a convenient way to enjoy the benefits of CBD.

There are about 35 vegan, organic gummy pieces at approximately 7 mg per serving size of 1 gummy. They are all natural, vegan, organic, and non-GMO, and they undergo supercritical CO2 extraction, like all of the other Blue Moon’s CBD products. Like the other products in this order, these were not tested for heavy metals, residues, or any other harmful substances. The accuracy, however, for the gummies was impressively accurate at 248.7 mg of CBD in this 250 mg container.

Limonene Extra Strength CBD Salve, 500 mg, 60 ml

This product has a refreshing citrus smell that is not overpowering. It is soft and wax based in consistency, so it’s easy to dispense a small or large amount for targeted relief. This 500 mg product is a 2 oz, or 60 ml size, and it rubs into the skin very smoothly, with little to no residue. There was only a slight variance of 1.5% in the total amount of CBD, for a total of 492.5 mg, so very accurate in formulating.

While not tested for purity, however, this product is CO2 extracted and formulated using beeswax, essential oils, and organic MCT oil from coconuts for a truly natural CBD topical salve. Suggested uses by the company include replenishing and nourishing skin, and this topical salve does just that. It only took a small amount of salve to cover my entire forearm. It’s a good value concerning how far this salve product goes when applying to the skin which was a pleasant surprise. The potency accuracy on these products also serves as a bonus to prospective consumers who are trying to get their money’s worth when it comes to buying all CBD products.
