The Bottom Line

Variety of ProductsIcon

Variety of Products

2.5

Canibrands CBD offers a targeted variety of premium quality full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD products that are available in the form of tinctures, softgels, oral sprays, and topicals. Their products range from 25 mg to 6000 mg of total CBD, and are extracted using an ethanol based process before being formulated with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability. This is followed by testing by an independent third party lab.

 

Transparency & AccuracyIcon

Transparency & Accuracy

4.0

The accuracy variances for our Canibrands CBD products concerning potency are excellent, with four checked products testing below the acceptable 10% variance limit allowed. Most ordered products passed purity testing for pesticides, solvents, microbials, and heavy metals, according to third party lab reports which are available for customer access on the product pages online. No purity test results were available for the topical balm 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 2019, Canibrands is a “next-generation CBD products company specializing in the sports, fitness, and wellness marketplace.” Their all natural, plant based products are divided into 4 categories of CBD enhanced products designed for energy, recovery, wellness, and sleep. Canibrands expertly combines full and broad spectrum hemp derived CBD, vitamins, nutraceuticals, and proprietary herbal extracts to produce their product catalog. They offer vegan options in most product categories, and according to their website, their products are made to “support a healthy active lifestyle.” Canibrands manufactures all of their products in a GMP certified facility.

    Transparency

    Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are quite close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. Canibrands CBD has a centralized lab testing link on their company homepage under the “Lab Reports” link at the bottom of every page online.

    All of the products in our Canibrands order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency. Purity tests for foreign contaminants such as heavy metals, microbials and mycotoxins were performed on all four checked products; however, some of the standard purity test results for two of the ordered products were unavailable at this time.

    Accuracy

    Using the corresponding product pages, 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 full spectrum Cani-Rest sleep softgels tested at 777 total mg of CBD, which represents a 3.6% accuracy variance, well under the acceptable 10% limit. The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 450 mg Cani-Fresh spearmint oral spray, which tested at 453.6 total mg of CBD. This calculates to an accuracy variance of .8%, well below the 10% variance limit allowed. All full and broad spectrum 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

    Their website includes verified, informative professional athlete testimonials, such as the inspiring story of Olympic swimmer Dara Torres, for example, along with Venus Williams, Colin Kaepernick, Kyrie Irving, and ultramarathon runner Scott Jurek, all of whom are actively taking a plant based approach to high performance in their respective sports. Each testimonial and product review corresponds to full and broad spectrum CBD products offered by Canibrands for specific effects. CaniBrands partners with professional sports leaders and celebrities to advocate for an all natural approach to health and wellness, and their products can be found in 3/4 of NHL dressing rooms, leading the company to be known as “the unofficial CBD of hockey.”

    Manufacturing Process

    The Canibrands CBD company is a legal, authorized grower of premium U.S. hemp, sourced from farms throughout the country. Their hemp derived, full and broad spectrum CBD products are extracted using their ethanol based 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 Canibrands 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 under the “Lab Reports” link located on every product page online. Any missing batch numbers for ordered products can be requested from customer service, who will also help with an explanation of the results.

    Canibrands CBD offers premium quality CBD products that are available in the form of full and broad spectrum tinctures, softgels, oral sprays, and topicals. Their products range from 25 mg to 6000 mg and are lower than average priced when compared to other brands, with an overall price point of $.05 per mg of broad or full spectrum CBD.

    Canibrands CBD Tinctures Overview
