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

    Based in Texas, John’s CBD is a prominent online distributor founded in 2016 that provides a wide range of organic full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate CBD products, as well as Delta-8 THC products. In 2020, John’s CBD received their Industrial Hemp license from the Texas Department of Agriculture and started to grow their organic CBD hemp.

    According to the website, the company’s goal is to make the “best possible products available at the best price” for open accessibility to consumers everywhere. As a part of our reputation check, we check BBB, FDA warnings, and more to see if there are any complaints or warnings about the brand. We didn’t find complaints or warnings for this brand, but John’s CBD is an officially accredited BBB business with an A+ score.

    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. John’s CBD has independent, third party lab results posted on individual product pages, but purity test results were unavailable online or from customer service at this time. All of the products in our John’s CBD order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency.

    Accuracy

    While no purity tests were available, using the corresponding product pages, it was easy to match the four ordered products with the independent third party lab results for potency. As for the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 750 mg softgels tested with 919.77 total mg of CBD, or 30.65 mg per serving size of one 25 mg softgel. This is a 22.63% accuracy variance and over the acceptable 10% limit.

    The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 500 mg topical pain cream, which tested with 488.6 total mg of CBD. This is an accuracy variance of 2.28% and 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

    John’s CBD is an officially accredited BBB company with an excellent A+ rating. They sell their products both online and in participating retail stores across the state of Texas. Now six years old, John’s CBD has nearly doubled in size each year since they were founded by John in 2016, primarily due to customer reviews, recommendations, but also because of their high quality, organic products that are effective for the needs of a wide variety of CBD and Delta-8 THC consumers, according to the company.

    Manufacturing Process

    John’s CBD is a legal, authorized grower of organic hemp on farms in Texas that uses organic ingredients in their products whenever possible, according to customer service. Their hemp-derived full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate CBD and Delta-8 THC products are all CO2 extracted. Most products are then formulated with organic, easily digestible 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 John’s 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 the “Lab Sheet” heading located on every corresponding product page. At this time, however, purity test results were unavailable on the website or through customer service.

    John’s CBD offers organic full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate CBD and Delta-8 THC products, available in tinctures, topicals, capsules, whole flower, isolate powder, drinks, edibles, and pet products that range from 25 mg to 3000 mg. They are lower than average priced when compared to other organic brands, with an overall price point average of $.05 per mg of CBD. They also offer gift cards.

    John’s CBD Tinctures Overview

    The organic full spectrum, broad spectrum CBD and Delta-8 THC tinctures by John’s CBD are formulated with organic MCT oil for faster bioavailability, and are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use. They undergo CO2 extraction and can also be added to beverages or food, per the company website. Several potencies and formulations are ordered, including one that is fruit flavored, one for immune health and one for sleep with added melatonin.
