My review of Max CBD is very good, but there is some room for improvement concerning the accuracy variances of their third party lab test potency results and their limited product catalog. They do offer free shipping with a $50 order minimum, ship internationally, and include a 60 day money back satisfaction guarantee on all products called the “Trust-Max” plan, with no questions asked.
Rather than a centralized testing hub, however, all of the third party lab results for each product’s potency and purity are scattered throughout the main website. Each individual product page lists only the corresponding lab results for one product at a time. The accuracy variances for these Max CBD products vary concerning potency, with two products testing below the acceptable 10% variance limit, and one product testing above the level allowed.
They carry a more limited range of CBD delivery methods than comparable brands, offering full spectrum products from 25 mg to 2500 mg with few potency options in between this range. Their compact catalog includes CBD topicals and skin care, tinctures, and capsules, often called softgels online. Their prices range from $39 up to $249, which equals an average price point of $.34. This means that Max CBD does have higher priced CBD products than other comparable organic brands in the market.
Established in 2019 in Pompano Beach, Florida, Max CBD reports online that they truly love the earth and plants, especially hemp. Upon harvest of their Oregon grown hemp crop, Max CBD employs an extraction process that ensures the preservation of nearly all beneficial hemp derived cannabinoids and terpenes, per the company website.
Max CBD is committed to helping others improve the quality of their lives through high quality CBD products and a one of a kind, ironclad 60 day Trust-Max Plan that protects consumers by ensuring either complete satisfaction or a complete refund with no questions asked. They also offer CBD consultations at no charge through a link on the main menu.
Independent CBD testing is a vital quality and safety control measure to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are very close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products from Max CBD were third party tested for CBD and THC potency and passed all purity testing for contaminants as well.
Rather than a centralized testing hub, the third party lab results for each individual product are scattered throughout the main website. Each individual product page lists only the corresponding lab results for one product at a time:
Using the testing links provided on each product page online, it was easy to match my products to the independent third party lab reports provided. Their full spectrum anti-aging CBD and collagen cream tested the most accurately: 2.36 mg per 2.5 mg pump in this 250 mg labeled product, for a total of 236 mg of CBD. It is well below the 10% variance allowed at 5.6%:
Their batch of full spectrum 300 mg unflavored tincture exhibited a high 35.2% variance, with 405.6 total mg of CBD, according to the third party lab reports. This is well above the acceptable 10% variance limit, and is their highest accuracy variance.
Each product had a good color, clarity, and texture. All standard purity tests for E.coli, pesticides, and heavy metals were passed by these Max CBD products. No THC was detected, and these results were confirmed by corresponding independent lab reports. The Max CBD organic products all tested negative for residual solvents, as well.

This CO2 extracted full spectrum tincture is translucent and nearly colorless in appearance, with a slight pale yellow tinge of color.
