The accuracy variances for our Kiara Naturals CBD products concerning potency are fairly good, with three checked products testing below the acceptable 10% variance limit and one product testing slightly over the 10% limit allowed. However, purity test results for foreign contaminants, such as pesticides, solvents, and heavy metals, are not posted online for customer review, however, and are unavailable from customer service as well. Kiara was founded in 2005 and began selling CBD products in 2019, with no FDA or BBB complaints to date.

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

    Kiara Naturals is a Swiss-based CBD brand founded in 2005 in Appenzellerland, Switzerland by Oren Landa, an Osteopath and Naturopath, and Boaz Lehman, a Clinical Herbalist. In 2019, they combined their two decades of experience in clinical practice to formulate and manufacture “natural, plant-based remedies into tested, safe, and effective CBD products.”

    According to their website, Kiara Naturals is one of the leading CBD brands in Switzerland and Germany, but they also do a large share of international business and ship globally. 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.

    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. Kiara Naturals CBD has each product’s independent, third party lab results for potency posted on that corresponding product page. Purity test results, however, were unavailable online or from customer service at this time. All of the products in our Kiara Naturals order were third party tested for CBD and THC potency.

    Accuracy

    While no purity test results are listed online, using each corresponding product page, 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 1000 mg Blue Magic topical tested with 780 total mg of CBD, or 26 mg per pump with approximately 30 pumps per bottle. This is an accuracy variance of 22% and over the acceptable 10% limit.

    The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 1000 mg CBD + CBDa tincture, which tested with 2850 total mg of CBD. This is an accuracy variance of 5% and below the 10% variance limit allowed for potency. 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

    Since 2005, Kiara Naturals has been growing, harvesting, and extracting the highest quality, naturally grown, and pesticide-free cannabis plants on their farms in the Alps of Switzerland. Their pharmaceutical-grade CBD products are manufactured in an FDA approved facility, under GMP conditions, according to the “About us” section online.

    They ensure the highest standards of production, safety and consistency to customers with their 60 day satisfaction guarantee on all CBD products. Kiara Naturals also sponsors “Kiara House,” an educational forum open to anyone who wants to learn more about plant medicine and CBD, in addition to hosting a global Facebook community.

    Manufacturing Process

    Kiara Naturals CBD is a legal, authorized grower of authentic Swiss hemp, sourced from local farms, using all natural ingredients. Their hemp-derived full and broad spectrum CBD products are extracted using CO2, ultrasound, or distillation before being formulated with 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 Kiara Naturals 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 each corresponding product page online. At this time, however, purity test results were unavailable on the website or through customer service.

    Kiara Naturals offers all natural full and broad spectrum CBD products that are available in tinctures, topicals, capsules, and vape products. Their products range from 20 mg to 3000 mg and are lower than average priced when compared to other brands, with an overall price point average of €.06 per mg of CBD. All Kiara Naturals products are pharmaceutical-grade and produced in a GMP certified and FDA approved facility.

    Kiara Naturals CBD Tinctures Overview

    The full and broad spectrum tinctures by Kiara Naturals are extracted using either ultrasound or distillation, and are then formulated with MCT oil for faster bioavailability. They are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use and can be added to beverages or food.

    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, third party test results link, and suggested uses or likely effects by the company.

    Kiara Naturals has a dedicated and informative section on CBD and its effects, located under the “Read” > “Blog” headings on the main menu for easy reference by consumers. There is quite a bit of information on the website about the company itself, their values, plant-based ingredients, and the difference of Kiara Naturals CBD products.

    There are easy options to shop all products at once using the “Everything” link under the “Shop” heading on the main menu, or by using the link found at the bottom of every page. Users can further filter product results by selecting specific desired effects on the “Shop” link on the main menu, which includes six product categories for sleep, pain, everyday, anxiety, skin, and recovery.

    As mentioned earlier, all of the third party lab results for potency available for the Kiara Naturals CBD catalog are located on each corresponding product page under the link “Quality counts, take a look at our laboratory results,” found about halfway down the page. It must be noted that there is not a centralized testing hub and purity test results are not included in the online COAs that are posted at this time.

    Customer service is available via phone, online messaging, and email, located under the “Read” > “Contact Us” heading on the main menu and the bottom of each page online. They were contacted via email regarding their extraction method, which is not clearly explained online, and the missing purity test results. A team member from Kiara Naturals responded the following business day with an email, providing the extraction information; however, no further insight about the purity test results for products was provided beyond stating their hemp was “naturally grown, pesticide-free, and non-GMO.”

    Individual product pages and the main website reports that Kiara Naturals carries a 60 day money-back guarantee; however, under their “What is our return policy” answer in the FAQ section, located under the “Read” heading on the main menu, the return time for products is listed as only 14 days. This conflicting information creates unnecessary confusion for potential buyers and should be standardized throughout the website online for 60 days.

    Order shipping is free with every purchase, and shipping speed runs between 3 to 10 business days depending on location and country, if international shipping is required. A shipping confirmation email with tracking was received, and our order arrived via DHL in a black-wrapped box that was discreet. All products inside were securely packaged individually in boxes.

It comes in a convenient pump, but the pump stopped putting out the CBD product after about three depressions. Luckily, Kiara Naturals offers a 60 day satisfaction guarantee so the product can be easily exchanged. This 1000 mg Blue Magic topical tested with 780 total mg of CBD, or 26 mg per pump with about 30 pumps per bottle. This is a 22% accuracy variance and over the acceptable 10% limit.

    This full spectrum topical is formulated with MCT oil for fast absorption. It rubs in easily and a little bit of product goes a long way, but it leaves a sticky residue on your skin where applied and on your hands. This topical is opaque, dark green in color, and has a stringy, thin consistency like a hair cream. This topical product tested with 926 total mg of CBD, which is an accuracy variance of 7.4% and under the allowed 10% limit. No purity test results for foreign contaminants, such as solvents and pesticides, were available online or through customer service.
