About the Company

Established in 2019, FOCL is an organic CBD brand committed to their customers and to producing quality, effective CBD sourced from U.S. farms. According to their website, they’ve worked with doctors, wellness experts, and chemists to “identify effective ingredient combinations that will produce the best results” for the body and the mind. FOCL is dedicated to helping consumers understand CBD and has a dedicated section called “Want to learn more about CBD?” that covers CBD vocabulary, effect expectations, and why CBD can be a helpful supplement to daily wellness routines.

Transparency

Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are identical to the contents of each final product a customer receives.

FOCL CBD has a centralized lab testing hub that includes the independent, third party potency and purity lab results for the corresponding product. All of the products in our FOCL order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency and all purity tests for foreign contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, microbials and mycotoxins were passed.

Accuracy

Using the centralized lab testing hub, 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 500 mg broad spectrum topical balm tested with 583.42 total mg of CBD, which is a 16.68% accuracy variance and over the acceptable 10% limit.

The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 300 mg fruit chews gummies, which tested with 298.8 total mg of CBD, or 9.96 mg per serving size of 1 gummy. This is an accuracy variance of .4% and well below the 10% variance limit allowed. All checked 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

FOCL CBD has many voluntary customer reviews and testimonials under the “Reviews” heading near the bottom of every corresponding product page online to help other customers make the best product choices, depending on their needs. They manufacture all of their organic CBD products in a GMP-certified facility, and they use organic agricultural practices.

Manufacturing Process

FOCL CBD is a legal, authorized grower of premium U.S. hemp, sourced from organic farms, using all natural ingredients. Their hemp-derived broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD products are CO2 extracted before being formulated with easily digestible, certified organic 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 FOCL 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 a centralized hub online.

Range of Products

FOCL offers premium quality, organic CBD products that are available in broad spectrum and full spectrum options and offered in tinctures, topicals, capsules, gummies, and bundles. Their products range from 10 mg to 2000 mg and are average priced when compared to other brands, with an overall price point average of $.08 per mg of broad or full spectrum CBD. Vegan options are available in many products, and all FOCL products are cruelty-free.

CBD Tinctures

These organic, CO2 extracted, broad and full spectrum tinctures by FOCL are formulated with MCT oil for faster bioavailability, and are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use. These vegan tinctures can also be added to beverages or food, per the company website.

Buying Experience

Their website is straightforward and easy to navigate, with each product page providing comprehensive product information for each item in that category, as well as ingredients, potencies, customer reviews, and suggested uses by the company. FOCL has a dedicated and informative section on CBD and its effects, located under the “Learn” heading at the bottom of the page for easy reference by consumers. There is quite a bit of information about the company itself, their processes, and the difference of FOCL CBD products on the website.

There are easy options to shop all products at once using the “Shop” link on the main menu, or by using the “Shop” link found at the bottom of every page. Users can further filter product results by selecting specific product types or effect categories, like “Focus,” “Rest,” and “Relief.” As mentioned earlier, all of the third party potency and purity lab results available for the FOCL CBD catalog are located on a centralized “Lab Analysis” testing hub.

Customer service is available via phone and email, located under the “Contact Us” heading at the bottom of every page online. They were contacted via email regarding their extraction method, which we were unable to find on the website. A team member from FOCL responded the following business day with an email, providing the information requested.

Order shipping is free with all subscriptions with no order minimum and with a $75 minimum order purchase. Otherwise, shipping costs are charged based on location and shipping speed selected. A shipping confirmation email with tracking was received, but our order arrived in a box that was not discreet with the FOCL logo clearly emblazoned on the box. All products were securely packaged inside.
