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

    Extract Labs is a CBD company that strives to uphold the highest quality standards while offering their customers the lowest price possible. All steps of their CBD product’s production are kept in house to maintain quality control. The company was founded by Craig Henderson, a USA army veteran who, alongside other veterans, discovered the benefits and therapeutic qualities of CBD. The company began in his garage, and has grown to employ over 50 employees today. There is ample information about Craig on the website where you can read about his journey.

    In addition to creating high-quality hemp-extract products, Extract Labs also partners with CSU by funding research on CBD and its effect on canine glioma cells (a type of brain cell). They have been recognized at the Indo Expo and awarded best extractor in 2018 and 2019 as well as best isolate in 2018. Extract Labs was also named in the top 10 for CBD oil in 2020 by CBD Validator.

    Extract Lab’s headquarters are located in Boulder, Colorado. To contact customer service, you can call their phone number during business hours, use the chat box, or email. The FAQ page on their website is full of information about CBD and answers various common questions. It also details their growing, extraction, manufacerting, and testing process as well as shipping, returns and more. Overall, their FAQ page is very informative.

    Each batch of Extract Lab’s products is third-party tested for cannabinoid levels and residual solvents. We assessed the results for the CBD Muscle Cream. The lab report showed there is 1533.84 mg of CBD per mg, which is 33.84mg more than listed for a CBD variance of 2%. This variance is below the acceptable 10% CBD variance. The THC level is 0.07%, which is within the allowable 0.3% limit. This sample was free of solvents.

    Manufacturing Process

    Extract Labs partners with Colorado hemp farmers who practice organic farming. All of the extraction, processing, manufacturing, and bottling is done onsite at their facilities Boulder, Colorado. To extract the CBD, they use CO2 extraction and create full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. The facility complies with the FDA’s GMP practices, which outline strict quality control measures to follow during manufacturing.

    To create their products, they use only organic and all-natural ingredients that are free from synthetic ingredients, artificial colors, fillers, or binders. In addition, their products are certified Kosher and Halal. Their website mentions the products are vegan, but their softgels contain gelatin which is derived from cows.

    Each batch of Extract Labs products are lab tested for potency and purity. They also offer third-party lab testing to other companies. Their lab is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by A2LA.

    You can access these by scanning the QR code on the product or using the batch number to look up the report on their lab reporting page.
