The Bottom Line

Half Day CBD is reputed to have emerged as a result of its founders Kaeron Norwood and Dave DiCosola seeking a more natural way to gain relief from pain and stress. They started to research CBD as a viable and holistic solution. Their search took them to local hemp farmers and they quickly started to discover the benefits of full spectrum CBD products. Half Day CBD was officially born in 2019.

Half Day carries numerous types of CBD gummies, tinctures, and topicals. Their prices are very affordable with most products averaging $0.04 to $0.06 per mg.

A seed to sale company, Half Day offers a 30 day money back guarantee from the date of delivery. Even if the packaging is damaged, they will still provide a refund. They offer free shipping on any orders over $99 and a flat rate shipping fee for other orders which makes their products somewhat more affordable.

All of the hemp that goes into Half Day’s CBD products is sourced from farms in Kentucky that utilize organic methods. After going through curing, it is shipped to Chicago for further processing. All facilities processing Half Day hemp have GMP certification.

Half Day’s main issue is lack of batch numbers for their third party lab results. They don’t publish results for every batch so you can’t be sure the results reflect your specific product batch.

Pros: Cons:
  • GMP facility
  • Certified USDA Organic
  • All natural curing process
  • Unresponsive customer service
  • No chat feature
  • Lack of batch information on products

About Half Day CBD

Half Day CBD is located in Chicago, Illinois. The entrepreneurs who launched the company have focused strongly on the use of organic hemp in all of their products. They oversee every aspect of cultivation, extraction, processing, flavoring, bottling, packaging, testing, and sales to ensure a pure product. Unlike many CBD products available, they do not white label anything. They even employ a licensed food safety manager to ensure their product always meets and exceeds all food safety standards and their faculty remains GMP certified.

All of the products offered by Half Day are full spectrum, so brimming with cannabinoids. However they do offer a couple of CBD isolate tinctures for anyone who does not want any trace of THC in their CBD products. They understand that many individuals do not like the often potent and earthy flavor of a full spectrum product, so they offer numerous flavoring options to make their items more palatable.

On the Half Day CBD website, you can opt to join their subscription plan which will automatically send you the products of your choice once a month and bill your credit card for the recurring payments. Also, you can cancel at any time.

Half Day partners with Shipbob to provide two day shipping on all their orders.

One thing to remember when you buy CBD products is that your credit card statement will read Snowbird Distribution, Inc. which is the parent company of Half Day CBD. All payments are processed under the parent company’s name. This information is often a bit confusing for buyers.

Half Day uses hemp grown organically on farms in Kentucky. The hemp is then shipped to Chicago, Illinois where it undergoes processing at Half Day’s facilities. As a seed to sale company, they have a hand in the entire process from start to finish which offers peace of mind to consumers

Half Day specializes in full spectrum products but you will also find an isolate. In addition, they sell hemp flower and joints.

The website is easy to navigate. However, the company’s ‘about’ section lacks any in depth information about the company.

Sadly, Half Day does not post individual lab results for their products. They have batch reports online but the reports are very generalized and not available on all batches despite the QR code on the items. The QR code simply directs you to the batch results generalized from various CBD products.

Accuracy

The test results posted online were easy to find. However, they only publish one result per product type so you can’t match exactly to your product’s batch. In addition, none of the lab results showed any testing for contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, microbials, etc.

The lab report for the Blissful Berry CBD Gummies 25 mg showed that each gummy is THC free and contains 34.6 mg of CBD which is far more than the listed 25 mg per gummy. This variance of 38.4% is well in excess of the acceptable 10% range. In addition, the batch report for Strawberry Bliss also lists ethanol as the extraction method used to obtain the cannabinoids, as opposed to the claimed CO2 extraction method.

Manufacturing Process

All of the hemp that goes into Half Day’s products is cultivated organically in Kentucky from hemp that contains less than 0.3 percent THC, according to their website. The land where the hemp is grown is classified as ‘virgin’ which means it has never been tainted by any sort of chemical exposure. The land is always either previously fallow or only used to grow hay prior to planting hemp. The farms and cultivation practices are USDA certified organic.

Harvest of the hemp is specifically timed to help guarantee consistency. At the end of the cultivation process the hemp undergoes a final inspection to check for mold. Then it is ready for the extraction process.

Half Day claims supercritical CO2 extraction is used to pull the cannabinoids from the plant’s fibers. The extract is solvent free and requires no additional filtering. The facility that performs the extraction process is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified and regularly undergoes quality control. Interestingly, Half Day proclaims that all of their products are formulated using CO2 as the extraction solvent. However, documentation provided by the lab lists ethanol as the extraction solvent used to obtain the cannabinoids.

All of the extracts from Half Day undergo third party laboratory testing. ProVerde Laboratories performs all of the third party testing services. Within the U.S.A. this lab is highly respected for its scientific precision, safety, and accuracy.

These gummies arrive in a plastic container with a screw cap lid. Each one is safely sealed in the container to preserve freshness. The smell of the gummies is very strong and minty sweet. They smell like a mix of strawberry and perhaps raspberry. Each chewy nugget is laden with what appears to be a sugary crystal coating. The price of the gummies is $19.99 per container which works out to about $0.08 per mg of CBD. The gummies are formulated using CBD isolate with less than 0.3 percent THC. They suggest taking one gummy every 12 hours. Each gummy is THC free and contains 34.6 mg of CBD which is far more than the listed 25 mg per gummy. This variance is well in excess of the acceptable 10% range. This product wasn’t tested for common pesticides or solvents, or for heavy metals, according to the available online lab reports.

If you are a coffee fan then you’ll love these chews which taste just like coffee. They are coated in sugar and very sweet.

The gummies are formulated with a CBD isolate that contains less than 0.3 percent THC. They suggest taking one gummy every 12 hours. Lab results weren’t available on this product.

The azure bottle contains 1000 mg of CBD. It boasts a glass dropper and the liquid is a lovely clear gold. The smell is similar to that of any full spectrum oil but has a hint of mint that helps mask the plant like flavor. You can taste the cannabinoids in the oil but also minty goodness that makes the robust flavor acceptable. Each bottle costs $99.00 which works out to about $0.10 per mg. The dropper does not have dosage markings so you’ll have to guess when measuring a dose. The product is a full spectrum CBD tincture that contains less than 0.3 percent THC. They suggest taking one dose every twelve hours. Place a drop under your tongue and hold it in place for 30 to 60 seconds before swallowing. Their 1000 mg oil showed a 9.6% variance in CBD content on the lab reports, at 1096 total mg of CBD. This is a bit under the 10% acceptable accuracy variance. This product wasn’t tested for pesticides, solvents, or heavy metals, according to the available online lab reports.

According to the company you should apply the salve directly to the area as needed. This product wasn’t tested for common pesticides or solvents, or for heavy metals, according to the available online lab reports.
