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

    DOPE CBD was initially established as a namesake couture clothing brand in 2007, and they plan to become a full standalone CBD line by June 2021, according to the website. During his freshman year of college, owner Rob Gough was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer and was given a 30% chance of living, so he became interested in CBD. DOPE CBD is dedicated to bringing consumers ethically sourced high quality hemp, using innovative extraction systems, and incorporating “modern counter culture influences” as their guiding principles to offer the most revolutionary CBD experience.

    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. DOPE CBD has no centralized lab testing link on their company homepage, but all available lab tests can be viewed under the “Click here to view the full report” link found on every product page online.

    All of the products in our DOPE CBD order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency. Purity tests for foreign contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, microbials and mycotoxins were performed on three checked products; however, standard purity tests were unavailable for one ordered product at this time.

    Accuracy

    Using the third party lab results on each corresponding product page, 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 200 mg broad spectrum body butter tested at 261.98 total mg of CBD, which represents a 30.9% accuracy variance, well above the acceptable 10% limit.

    The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 80 mg lemon gummies that contain 20 mg of CBD each. This product tested at 20.23 mg of CBD per serving of 1 gummy, or 80.92 total mg of CBD total. This calculates out to an accuracy variance of .11%, far 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

    Rob Gough is a serial entrepreneur who has built and sold multiple technology companies and is now the sole owner of DOPE, a premium couture brand that was established in 2007 and was acquired by him in 2017. Originally established as a clothing brand, DOPE CBD has a “Celebrity Sightings” link on the main menu with photos of well known consumers of the brand, such as athletes, musicians, and actors, wearing their DOPE branded clothing. On the CBD side, there are numerous customer reviews and feedback from both celebrities and current customers on the individual product pages and on the main company website. The owner Rob promises more to come throughout the coming year as they move into CBD full time by June 2021.

    Manufacturing Process

    DOPE CBD is a legal, authorized grower of premium U.S. hemp, sourced from farms throughout the country. Their hemp derived, full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD products are normally extracted using a CO2 based process before being formulated with easily digestible MCT oil 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 DOPE CBD 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 on every product page for easy reference.

    DOPE CBD offers premium quality CBD products that are available in the form of full spectrum and broad spectrum tinctures, capsules, topicals, and vape cartridges. Their products range from 20 mg to 60 mg and are average priced when compared to other brands, with an overall price point of $.08 per mg of full or broad spectrum CBD.

    Vape Pen Battery review

    The Dope brand vape cartridges fit on this compact, handy CCell® 510 battery by screwing onto the top threads. It is a sleek vape battery in a glossy black color, with the Dope brand logo embossed into the handle grip in gold lettering. According to the company, they use a ceramic coil and glass casing in all their cartridges and “cutting edge technology” for all their batteries for a smoother hit of CBD. These are recommended by the company for inhalation only, using a vape cartridge attached to the threaded battery that is about 3 inches long for discreet use.
