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

Half Day CBD is reputed to have emerged as a result of its founders Kameron 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

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 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 does all of the shipping in house in order to provide the orders in 2-4 days.

    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.

    Leafreport’s market reports score

    Pricing report – Half Day CBD was listed in «А» price rank (Bargain 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

    All of the hemp that goes into Half Day’s products is sourced from farms in Illinois that utilize organic methods. Half Day has direct relationships with their farmers and processors, and all facilities processing Half Day hemp have GMP certification.  According to the company, the hemp 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.

    As you can see from the table above, Half Day carries a large assortment of CBD products to fit any price range. The price per mg of CBD ranges from $0.04 to $0.11. The prices are average for the market

    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 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.

The cream goes on smooth and is rapidly absorbed by your skin leaving behind no oily residue. The balm contains full spectrum CBD along with shea butter, beeswax, lavender oil, peppermint oil, and Arnica. The full spectrum salve contains less than 0.3 percent THC. The salve’s lab results show a total of 263.82 mg of CBD, which represents a 24.6% variance, way above the 10% acceptable variance. According to the company you should apply the salve directly to the area as needed.
