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.

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.

Range of Products

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.

CBD Tinctures

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.

This soothing and healing topical is an all natural, full spectrum formulation. This cream is dark gray to brown in color with a thicker consistency, like a traditional beauty face mask. 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. No purity tests for foreign contaminants were available for review at this time. The company recommends this product for topical use on external skin areas only.

This topical is best for those who want the full spectrum benefits of CBD in order to help enhance their daily skin routine or to heal and improve the current condition of skin, according to the company, including inflammation.

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.

This potent product is for consumers seeking immediate and targeted pain relief, muscle relaxation, and increased inflammation, according to the company, who also recommends use by athletes who need any type of recovery.
