The Bottom Line

Overall, it is evident that Charlotte’s Web is a company that cares about spreading the benefits of CBD to its customers. The founding brothers have a respectable mission of bettering the planet and the people living on it. There is not much information available about the brothers themselves or any of the other people that make up this company. However, Charlotte’s Web is a well known company in the CBD arena, and they have a good reputation in the CBD market. Their website has a comprehensive FAQ page, multiple ways to reach their care team, and they have a 30 day money-back guarantee.

The growing, processing and manufacturing practices of Charlotte’s Web are clean, green, and incorporate multiple quality control checks. They state they use organic farming techniques and are in the process of becoming USDA Certified Organic. They have two different extraction processes, one is CO2 extraction while the other is ethanol extraction. Charlotte’s Web third party tests all of its products. When assessing the results, unfortunately, most products had a 20-60% variance in CBD from the stated value. This is well above the acceptable 10% variance. All the products we looked at did pass for THC content (less than 0.3%) as well as contaminants.

Overall, Charlotte’s Web has a large selection of CBD products and multiple bundles, which save you 20%. They offer topicals, oils, gummies, pet products, and more. In addition, there are various flavor options, potencies, and sizes. They do not offer any vape products at this time.

Compared to other CBD brands on the market, the prices at Charlotte’s Web are about average. The majority of their products range from $0.06 to $0.15 per mg of CBD. Other CBD oils available often fall in about the same price range.

Pros: Cons:
  • Manufacturing facilities are registered with the FDA
  • Multiple quality control testing of plants and soil
  • Involved in multiple philanthropic partnerships
  • 30 days money back guarantee
  • Organic and non-GMO farming (USDA Organic Certification Pending)
  • Wide range of products
  • A bit challenging to find information about the company on their website quickly
  • Cannot view the product’s third party lab results without a batch number
  • The overall website is a bit tedious to navigate
  • Large CBD variance (greater than 10%)

About the Company

The company was started by seven brothers, the Standley Brothers, in response to a desire to help a little girl, Charlotte. At a very early age, Charlotte Figi was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy. Her mother, Paige, extensively researched health options that led her to a little known plant compound called cannabidiol, or CBD. Meanwhile, the Stanley Brothers were working to develop proprietary hemp genetics that was high in CBD and low in THC in order to get the medical benefits without the psychoactive properties. Paige contacted the Stanley Brothers looking for a non-psychoactive natural alternative for her then five-year-old daughter Charlotte. After seeing Charlotte’s response to the extract, the Stanley Brothers renamed their proprietary genetics Charlotte’s Web.

In terms of transparency, It is not clear from the website what year the company was founded. When we tried to search online, we finally found the company’s investor page, which indicated that in 2011 the founding brothers created a proprietary strain of hemp, which they used for their company later after passage of the Farm Bill in 2018.

On the other hand, the website has a very comprehensive FAQ page, which can be found in the footer of the website. Here, there are dozens of common questions and answers that address various topics, including general questions, questions concerning hemp and CBD, inquiries about shipping and return information, and questions about their reward program.

Aside from creating high quality CBD products, Charlotte’s Web states that they are committed to giving back to the community and fostering meaningful relationships with charities. They support multiple programs, including the Women’s Bean Project, which supports women’s quality of life and self-sufficiency, veterans and first responders, sustainable farming practices, not only within their own company but also in other companies, and children and families in need.

Overall, Charlotte’s Web is committed to upholding their reputation with multiple ways to reach their customer service representatives; phone, email and chatbot. They offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on their products. This means you can return products for any reason within 30 days and receive a full refund. If products are damaged upon arrival, you have 48 hours to contact their customer care team to explain the damages. Their team will assess what steps should be taken next. Plus, shipping is free on orders over $74.99. Orders usually will arrive in about 7 business days.

In terms of accuracy, Charlotte’s Web third party tests all of their products for CBD, THC, and contaminant levels. When we assessed some of the results to see how accurate their formulations were, we found that there was a large variance in the quantity of CBD that is listed on the bottle compared to what is actually inside.

For example, we looked at the third party lab results of one of the products, the Hemp Infused Balm Stick (510mg CBD), by typing in its batch number into the “certificate of analysis” page. We found that there iwa 755mg of CBD per bottle in this batch and 0.05% THC. This means that there is 230mg more CBD than listed, that amounts to a variance of 44%. This is much higher than the accepted 10% variance. This product passed testing for THC content, microbials, solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, and mycotoxins.

In summary, it is clear that their mission centers on utilizing natural products, such as CBD, as a first choice in health and wellness and that mother nature should be trusted for her innate wisdom. However, information about the brothers who started the company, and when it was founded is less available. Also, when searching for information about their company on their website, it can be a bit confusing as you have to click on multiple “Learn More” buttons which take you to another page, with still more “Learn More” buttons. There is not a lot of information about the other members of Charlotte’s Web team. Plus, there is no mention of any health professionals, scientists, or pharmacists that partner with the brothers. Charlotte’s Web is a company that is prominent in the CBD arena, and overall they carry an excellent reputation.

Manufacturing Process

Information about the growing and manufacturing process of Charlotte’s Web can be found under the “Explore” tab on the “Our Story” page. There is a heading “OUR FIELD IS THE SCIENCE OF BOTANICS” with a “Learn More” Button. Most of this page provides information about CBD in general, however, near the bottom of the page, there is some information about the specifics of Charlotte’s Web growing practices.

They mention that they oversee the process from start to finish to ensure quality is maintained throughout. Before and throughout the growing process, they test both the soil and the plants for quality. They ensure that the hemp plants contain a constant phytochemical profile to ensure that each batch of their CBD products are consistent and you, as a consumer, know what to expect when using their products. They use only the flowers and stems of the hemp plant which are grown in healthy soil that is clear of heavy metals and contaminants. They also mention that the company utilizes sustainable farming practices that are beneficial to the earth. This includes organic and non-GMO farming practices. Although they do not currently have a USDA Organic certification, they are in the process of obtaining one.

Charlotte’s Web manufacturing facilities are registered with the FDA, and their manufacturing process follows the FDA cGMP standards for dietary supplements.

We couldn’t easily find the extraction methods on the website, so we used the chat option. We asked what kind of extraction method they use, and this was their answer:

“Charlotte’s Web (CW)] offers two different extraction methods that offer different benefits based on the specific reason you are taking CBD.

The first extraction method is Isopropyl Alcohol Extraction (IPA-a class 3 solvent; food grade) This is our original method of extraction, and creates a unique phytochemical profile that we want to preserve. Currently, the only product we use IPA extraction with is the Original formula (previously Hemp Extract Oil Advanced).

Our second extraction method, which all of our other products use, is CO2 extraction.”

When we asked if this information could be found anywhere on their website, the response was just a link to their main website. It was clear that the chat is operated by a chatbot and not a human, which makes getting all the details you need a bit challenging. Although we got answers to the extraction method questions, we were not able to find out if this information is on their website, and if so, where to find it.

Charlotte’s Web third party tests all of their products. This is an important quality and safety control measure as it ensures that what is on the label in terms of CBD and THC content matches what is inside. Third party testing also detects the presence of any contaminants that may be harmful to a person’s health, such as E. Coli, heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides.

We looked at the third party lab results for the Sleep CBD Gummies (10mg CBD/serving) by scanning the QR code on the label. We found that this product had 12mg of CBD per serving ( 2 gummies), which is 2mg more CBD total than what is listed. This means there is a 20% variance, higher than the acceptable 10%. Also, there was 0.01% THC, which is well below the 0.3% cutoff standard. This product passed testing for microbes and heavy metals.

Charlotte’s Web offers a variety of CBD oils. CBD oils are consumed orally using a dropper that measures out the desired volume of oil. They mention that their CBD products are designed to support a sense of calm, enhance focus, manage everyday stresses, improve recovery from exercise induced inflammation, and maintain healthy sleep cycles. Keep in mind, these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

All of Charlotte’s Web CBD oils are made with full spectrum, CO2 extracted CBD except their Original Formula, which is made using ethanol extracted CBD. They third party test each batch. Results can be looked up on the “Certificate of Analysis” page after the product is purchased using the batch number printed on the product.

The Original Formula CBD Oil is available in 30ml or 100ml package sizes with 50mg/ml of full spectrum CBD. It is also available in a Mint Chocolate flavor or an unflavored Natural Olive Oil option. They also offer a 10ml starter size in the Mint Chocolate flavor.

Each oil is available in a 30ml bottle or a 100ml bottle. The 17mg/ml and 60mg/ml potencies are available in a starter size of 10ml in the mint chocolate flavor.

CBD Isolate

Charlotte’s Web offers one CBD isolate product, which is a CBD oil. Their extraction method is said to be proprietary, which means they do not reveal the details to the public.

We contacted customer service using their chatbot to ask some questions about their manufacturing and extraction process as it was not easy to find on the website. The chatbot responded almost immediately and provided detailed information about the extraction process. However, since we were not communicating with a person, the chatbot was not able to answer our in depth questions about where this information could be found on the website.

Keep in mind, there are other ways to contact Charlotte’s Web. We also called them during business hours and got a response right away.
