Why you can trustlogo

  • Leafreport's mission is to provide accurate, objective, and valuable content for CBD, which is why we're transparent about our review process  and  how we rate products and brands. We may receive compensation. Here’s how we make money.
  • Our review is consumer-focused only and we do not check or take a stand regarding medical effects.
  • Statements regarding CBD products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
  • Please advise your physician prior to each use of CBD.

The Bottom line

Cibdol has operations based in the Netherlands and laboratories in Switzerland, they comply with strict European manufacturing standards.
The company uses hemp coming from organic sources in Europe and uses the CO2 extraction method to draw CBD oil from the hemp plant. The process of extraction is then followed by additional steps to enrich the CBD oil with terpenes to make it a potent full spectrum oil.

The company uses cutting edge technologies such as lysosomal preparations that are 4 times more effective than ordinary products according to their website. Additionally, they offer a variety of CBD products with a range of carrier oils.

Their prices are competitive with most of their products priced less than $0.079 per mg of CBD. Also, the customer support is robust and you get a response almost instantaneously from the web chat feature. Finally, the website is quite detailed and most features are quite self explanatory.

However, the company is not truly transparent about the source of their hemp as their customer support only mentioned that they source their hemp from European farmers but did not provide the details. The biggest downside is the discrepancy between the amount of CBD mentioned on their product labels and that documented in the COA (Certificate of Analysis). The variance in the CBD concentrations can be as high as 40%. Also, the COA does not provide sufficient information for the consumer to decide if the products are free of residual chemicals, fungi, and microbes.

Pros: Cons:
  • A well reputed company that complies with European manufacturing standards
  • Highly trusted with more than 17,000 positive reviews on Trustpilot
  • The company uses additional steps to ensure the products are truly full spectrum and are loaded with terpenes
  • The website is interactive, easy to use, and can be translated into more than a dozen European languages
  • Competitive prices with bundle deals and offers
  • The company is not entirely clear about the source of their hemp
  • The variance in the CBD concentration between the product labels and the COA can be as high as 50%
  • Quite strict return policy. The products have to be returned within 14 days unopened to be eligible for a refund
  • The 3rd party testing reports don’t document the presence of residual chemicals, microbes, and fungi

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

    Founded in 2016, Cibdol’s business operations are based in the Netherlands but the actual laboratory is based in Switzerland. The company displays ‘Swiss Purity’ as a badge and boasts about precision and transparency of their processes, as mentioned on their website. The vision of the company is to produce CBD products that ‘actually improve human health’ and are ‘safe’ to use.

    Starting from natural European hemp processed through product manufacturing in the cutting edge Swiss labs, Cibdol is committed to providing the highest quality CBD products. With multiple certifications backing their third party tested products, Cibdol is certainly an authentic European provider of CBD products.

    Transparency

    The terms and methods of usage, CBD amount per serving, and THC content are mentioned with each product. There is no FAQ page on their website but the company has a detailed ‘Terms and conditions’ page. It answers commonly asked questions about shipping, terms of use, and return policy. The company has a 14 days return policy.

    Cibdol products are FSSC22000 certified. This is a certificate that accredits the facility as maintaining the highest standards of food safety and quality in a product. Also, Cibdol products are audited for safety and quality on an annual basis.

    Most but not all of their products and practices are halal certified and vegan. Their softgels, however, contain animal based gelatin and this is mentioned in the product description.

    Accuracy

    The products’ strengths and contents are mentioned on the product labels. The strength of active ingredients and levels of heavy metals is mentioned with each batch’s third party analysis. Each product contains less than 0.01% THC by volume. Although the website states products are free of solvents, residues, and microbes, this is not mentioned in the analysis reports.

    For a few of the COAs analyzed, the concentration of active ingredients was ‘Higher’ than what was mentioned on the product labels. For example, for the 230 mg CBD oil, the actual CBD content, as per the COA, is almost 340 mg. This variance between the quantity mentioned on the product label and the COA report in this particular case is 47.8%, way above the acceptable 10% limit.

    Reputation

    The company is relatively new but has created a stir in the European market. Cibdol has a huge market base and ships its products to most of the European countries. What also stands about this company is that the website offers information in most of the European languages.

    Leafreport’s market reports score

    Pricing report – Cibdol was listed in «B» price rank (Market grade) 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

    Cibdol has partnered with Brightlabs, which is an independent analytics lab for food and supplement quality and safety. Brightlabs and Cibdol not only check their products for safety but they go as far as testing the soil in which the hemp grows. This is to ensure that each batch of hemp grows in a natural and controlled environment. Also, each batch of products contains a third party testing certificate ensuring the product has the right amount of active ingredients and is free of heavy metals.

    Cibdol uses the CO2 extraction method to gather CBD oil from the hemp plant. What stands out for this company is the extra steps taken while manufacturing to ensure product quality, purity, and enrichment. The initial CO2 extraction is followed by CBDA decarboxylation that increases the strength of CBD. It is followed by additional purification, details of which are not known and terpene enrichment steps. These steps give a highly pure form of golden CBD oil.

    The website does not tell a lot about the source of hemp. When we asked the customer support, they informed us that they source their hemp from local farmers in Europe. They also told us that their products are naturally cultivated and free of chemicals and pesticides. When asked for more details about their suppliers, the customer support told us they couldn’t disclose this piece of information.

    Cibdol’s website does not reveal a lot of detail concerning how they manufacture their products. Instead, they have an illustration that lays out the main processes involved.

    When asked their customer support more about the particular details of their manufacturing process, they essentially redirected us to the same page on their website.

    Regardless, Cibdol seems to employ additional processes to decarboxylate CBDA and enrich their CBD oil to obtain a full spectrum CBD product. The individual batches are then run through internal and third party testing to ensure quality.

    Cibdol offers a quality line of full spectrum CBD products. These include a variety of CBD oils, CBD capsules, CBD creams, a range of CBD beauty topicals, CBG oil, and CBN oil.

    Here is an in depth analysis of these products.

    Cibdol CBD Oils Overview

    Cibdol offers a range of full spectrum CBD oils in five different carrier oils: black cumin seed oil, hemp seed oil, olive oil, liposomes, and MCT oil. These products range from 230 mg (1.15 mg/drop) to 3800 mg (19 mg/drop) of CBD and the recommended dose is 3 to 4 drops up to 3 times a day according to the label. These carrier oils impart additional benefits to the CBD oil, as explained below.

    Cibdol CBG and CBN Oil Overview

    Both CBG and CBN are cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. When used in combination with CBD, they exert an entourage effect. In other words, these cannabinoids tremendously increase the efficacy of CBD. Also, these cannabinoids offer additional health benefits of their own such as pain relief, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory actions.

    Cibdol CBD and CBN Crystals Overview

    Cibdol also offers 99% pure CBD and CBN crystals both containing 500 mg of the active ingredients. Both cost $ 48.34.

    As mentioned, their CBD oil comes in a variety of carrier oils. We chose to order Black Cumin Seed oil with 5% CBD. It comes in a 10 ml glass bottle with a dropper. Each bottle contains 460 mg of CBD and each drop contains 2.3 mg of CBD. The recommended intake is 3 to 4 drops 3 times a day.

    For the 460 mg (5%) black cumin seed full spectrum CBD oil, the COA showed a concentration of 498 mg (5.42%). The accuracy variance is 8.2%.

    The full spectrum CBD with black cumin oil is for sublingual administration. Here is how to use the oil, as recommended on the website.

    The oil is thick, yellow, and quite viscous. The recommended usage, CBD concentration, and CBD concentration per drop are mentioned on the product label. The oil did not come with a COA. However, the batch number is mentioned on the product label and you can get the COA for each batch from the official website.

    The oil had a neutral taste and did not leave any bitter aftertaste.

    This is one of the CBD beauty range products. The cream is meant to moisturize the skin and improve its health. The company recommends using it at bedtime on the face, neck, and upper chest region. It is not for use around the eyes.

    The cream contains 100 mg of CBD. It has a pleasant smell, is not oily, and does not stick to the skin. I used it before bedtime and it got absorbed quite well.

    The night cream contains 100 mg CBD per 50 ml cream (0.2% w/w). The COA showed the concentration was 51.25 mg (0.205%). The accuracy variance was 2.5%.

    Eyes are particularly sensitive and most of the skincare creams don’t go quite well with the eyes. Cibdol realized that and came up with this eye gel roller. As the name suggests, the gel comes with a roller that you can easily roll under your eyes.

    The roller stick is easy to use and is carefully designed to move within the contours of the eyes. Like CBD night cream, the eye gel has a pleasant smell, is not oily, and gets absorbed quite well. It contains 26 mg of CBD.

    The eye roller gel contains 26 mg CBD per 13 ml gel (0.2% w/w). The COA showed the concentration was 27.9 mg (0.214%). The accuracy variance was 7.3%.

    For this product, the company recommends taking 1 softgel 3 times a day. Each softgel supplies 6.4 mg CBD.

    Note that Cibdol CBD softgels are non-vegan and non-halal as they contain gelatin from animal sources.

    The CBD concentration on the COA is 399 mg and the accuracy variance is 3.9%, way below the 10% acceptable variance. The heavy metal analysis report is not available on their website.
