The Bottomline

NanoCraft CBD uses science to offer quality CBD products to the public. Their products have been formulated using state of the art NanoTechnology which encapsulates the active ingredients by suspending them in nanoemulsions or nanospheres. Nanotechnology makes NanoCraft CBD products more bioavailable so that fast absorption occurs, and all the product is used by the body instead of a portion being wasted. Overall, Nano Technology ensures zero wasted nutrients and improves absorption dramatically.

You might mistakenly believe that so much technology comes at a high price but, NanoCraft products are average price per mg CBD $0.12, which is considered moderately priced when compared to other brands on the market.

The product line of NanoCraft CBD is sufficient. They offer a nice line of soft gel capsules, CBD oil tinctures, topicals, powders and CBD infused waters. They also added a line of pet products, under an independent brand  – Petly CBD.

When processing their hemp harvests, the plants are dried and warehoused directly after harvest. The hemp is then milled into a powder that is very coarse. The powder is then shipped to its private processing facility in Colorado.

According to NanoCraft, all the products contain 112 cannabinoids such as THCA, CBDA, CBD, CBN, CBG, and CBD (not all of them are detectable at the 3rd party lab test results). There also retain the natural terpenes and flavonoids. Their oils contain a broad spectrum of all natural compounds.

All their CBD oil obtained through an extraction process with food grade ethanol. They are one of the few CBD brands to use food grade ethanol. Food grade ethanol is a safe solvent that does not leave behind unwanted and potentially toxic solvents. Extraction using food grade ethanol is a favorite method that is FDA approved for food and beverages. Also, they work to remove all traces of THC from their broad spectrum products.

NanoCraft uses 3rd party lab to test their products, the COAs are accessible through the relevant product page, a dedicated page that contains all COAs, and a QR code on each product label that takes the user to the COA hub page which he can navigate there.

NanoCraft CBD offers oils that have undergone processing to afford nano-sized emulsions. According to NanoCraft’s own in house laboratory claims, their nanoemulsion process makes their products five times more bioavailable than oil based and four times more bioavailable than water soluble hemp oils,

Pros: Cons:
  • Nanotechnology increases the product’s bioavailability
  • 30 day return policy
  • A dollar per product goes to grassroots products
  • No international shipping.
  • Prices are on the average market level.

In terms of transparency, we had the honor to visit NanoCraft’s offices and warehouse in San Diego, USA and interview Stefan Mckeller, CEO / Co-Founder. You can watch the video below.

About the Company

Two buddies, Todd Erwin and Stefan McKellar, founded NanoCraft in 2017. The mission of NanoCraft is to offer exceptional CBD products that promote health and whole-body wellbeing. The company is based in La Jolla, California. In addition, when the partners experienced success, they wanted to give some of it back to the world. This is why they wholeheartedly support grassroots products through their NanoKids program. NanoKids is focused on grassroots projects that help children. Organizations that they support include the Mauli Ola Foundation and Child Hunger Sucks.

NanoCraft CBD was crafted by first taking a true athlete’s performance into consideration. They cater to individuals focused on living by a strict sport’s nutrition protocol who wish to further boost their performance by adding a NanoCraft CBD product to their daily regime..This helps to stimulate an athlete’s endocannabinoid system so they can truly reach ambitious physical goals.

According to NanoCraft CBD, their products are formulated using the latest scientific advances and they offer modern nanotechnology that encapsulates key ingredients within nanoemulsions and nanospheres. NanoCraft partners with Folium BioSciences, which is a company that adheres to the stricted standard for help cultivation and processing, creating 0.0% THC hemp products. They use licensed industrial hemp farms that have been certified by both Colorado State Department of Agriculture as well as Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to produce 0.0% THC hemp products.

All of NanoCraft’s hemp seeds are non-GMO, and have been cultivated to contain high levels of phytocannabinoids which work synergistically with CBD. Their farms are located in sunny Colorado and adhere to strict standards for growing practices. However, they do not go into detail on what this means exactly, and they do not carry a USDA-organic certification. NanoCraft manufactures its products in a modern cGMP certified facility which is also located in Colorado and stores their hemp whole until it is ready to be milled for further processing.

Nanocraft uses only food grade ethanol extraction to ensure purity. Food grade ethanol is a safe extraction solvent that does not leave behind unwanted toxic solvents. Food grade ethanol is a favorite extraction solvent that is FDA approved for food and beverages. According to NanoCraft, they are one of the few facilities in the world to use only food-grade ethanol.

Nanocraft performs in-house laboratory testing to assess the levels of CBD, THC, contaminants and other constituents such as fatty acids and terpenes. On a monthly basis, they use 3rd party lab testing to confirm their in-house lab findings. They provide the THC and CBD concentration levels on their COAs which are available for each product. Their products appear clean with no toxic solvent residues, e coli, yeast or heavy metal residues.

You will find the company’s contact details easily on their contact us page.

 

Manufacturing Process

The manufacturing process of NanoCraft begins on their nutrient-rich, registered farms in Colorado. They partner with Folium BioSciences which has been certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as a 0.0% THC Phytocannabinoid-Rich hemp oil products that meet the requirements for human consumption. The company’s team is made up of farmers, scientists, engineers, chemists, veterinarians, formulators to ensure the quality standard of their products are always at the highest level.

Each year, the Colorado State Department of Agriculture tests the level of THC in the hemp plants on their farms to confirm they are in compliance with both state and federal industrial hemp laws.

Their non-GMO hemp is rich in phytocannabinoids, as they use a proprietary strain which has been bred to contain high levels of this plant constituent. In addition to high levels of phytocannabinoids, their broad-spectrum hemp oil contains 112 cannabinoids, including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBN, CBC and THCA, as well as terpenes and flavonoids.
Their hemp is grown under ‘very strict organic cultivation regulations’ as well as 100% organic farming practices according to their website. However, we couldn’t find any USDA reference or certificate.

Their hemp seeds are not only non-GMO, they are also halal certified, and kosher certified which are two important designations for people of the muslim or jewish faith, respectively. The plants are cultivated in fields bathed in sunshine to encourage robust growth.

Upon harvest, the hemp is dried and stored whole in their warehouse until it is needed for processing. . Next, is sent to their manufacturing facilities which are also located in Colorado. Here, it is then ground down into a very coarse substance that undergoes ethanol extraction to pull out the oils. NanoCraft uses only food-grade ethanol for their extraction process. During processing, they state that they adhere to the highest standards in the industry.

NanoCraft utilizes proprietary technology to purify their CBD oil. This technology removes wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and any trace amounts of THC. Because they make sure to remove all traces of THC from the final product, their final outcome is ae abroad spectrum CBD oil that is 100% free from psychoactive THC. . Everything is then processed using nanotechnology to make the final product more bioavailable.

It should be noted that some of their products are CO2 extracted rather than ethanol extracted. You can read in the various product descriptions which extraction process was utilized to obtain the cannabinoids.

To ensure the quality and purity standards of their product, NanoCraft uses in-house lab testing which analyzes the amount of CBD, THC, solvents, fatty acids, terpenes etc. Each batch is tested, and awarded a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality Assurance upon passing their laboratory assessment. They also use third-party testing once per month to verify their in house results. To date, NanoCraft reports that all of their batches have passed both the in house and third-party testing. You can locate the results of each batch by either scanning the QR code on the product, or visiting their COA page and locating the batch number there.

We looked closely at the COA and lab report that are generated by a third party laboratory. We looked at the lab results for NanoCraft CBD Day Cocoa Mint 300mg. It showed the level of CBD at 320.16 mg which is higher than 300 mg per bottle listed. This result is still within the acceptable variance range of 10%.
It was free of any THC. Residual solvents were all within the required/acceptable percentages. No pesticides or heavy metals were revealed.

The lab report was pulled from the product’s specific page. There is no way, however, to tell if the report matches the batch of CBD used to manufacture what you were sent. The batch number is not printed on the box or bottle, only on the lab report itself.

The lab report for NanoCraft CBD Night Lavender 300mg also showed the CBD content at 319.22 mg which is higher than the 300mg listed on the bottle’s label, Again, this is within the acceptable variance range.

It also showed that the quantity of all residual solvents were within the acceptable range. Finally, the report revealed pesticides and heavy metals were within the acceptable range.

Here, as well, the batch number was not listed on the product itself or on the lab report which makes it impossible to maintain traceability.

Note: During our visit to NanoCraft’s offices, we discussed with Stefan, CEO, about this issue and he explained they are currently in the process of changing the lab sheets so that they will contain batch numbers – some of the new formated sheets are already available in their site.

The return policy offered by NanoCraft is very impressive. They will provide you with a full refund within 30 days if for some reason you are not completely satisfied with the item. They do not ask any questions and simply give you your money back.

The main problem with the entire process is that they do not clearly state the CBD concentration in their product descriptions. You have to enlarge the photo of the actual bottle to learn the CBD concentration in milligrams per milliliter.

The buying experience is very quick and easy. They do not ship internationally, only within the USA. All products are shipped out the same day (except for Sundays).

At the time of writing this review, this was our experience contacting the support team: I called the customer service number to ask about shipping. I was told that it takes seven to 10 days to process and then the items are shipping out using standard mail. I also asked about the third party lab results and the female simply stated they use a third party lab to batch test but the individual results are not published online.

After our visit to their offices, we’ve been told that their shipping turnaround times were improved, and all products are shipped on the same day.

 

Products Reviewed

Here is our honesty insight into each product we’ve ordered.

 

NanoCraft CBD Day Cocoa Mint 300mg

This refreshingly minty CBD oil was designed to start your day. The oil tincture can be taken straight by placing a few drops under your tongue or by adding it to your coffee or latte. This is a water soluble solution so you can even place it in a smoothie or a glass of orange juice. The CBD Day formula contains 300mg of CBD along with B12, CoQ10, Ashwagandha, and organic caffeine. All the ingredients in the tincture work together to kick start your day. Each serving of the oil contains 10mg of CBD. You can easily do your CBD with the enclosed glass dropper that clearly outlines the dosage. The oil appears as a soft golden hued liquid that has a wonderfully refreshing mint aroma. .

I found the flavor of the oil very pleasant. There is no earthy taste but instead only minty freshness. The dropper was easy to use and had a nice firm feel. The product’s labeling was very straightbord and not difficult to read or understand. As mentioned, the company does not state the batch number on it.

The price of the product is $0.06 per milligram.

 

NanoCraft CBD Night Lavender 300mg

NanoCraft CBD Night Lavender 300mg is loaded with cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. However, it is completely THC free. It is designed to be taken at night before bed so you can achieve restful slumber. It is completely water soluble so you can add it to your tea or any relaxing drink. It also contains melatonin and lavender essential oils. The bottle contains 300mg of CBD. The company advises consumers to take 10mg. You can use the glass dropper to measure the dosage. The oil has a soft golden hue and you can smell the subtle and soothing lavender aroma with each drop. I mixed it in a cup of chamomile tea. I did not taste the lavender or the oil because it blended beautifully with the tea. However, when I inhaled the scent of the piping hot tea, I could percieve slight lavender undertones wafting up.

The price of the product is $0.06 per milligram.

 

NanoCraft CBD Broad Spectrum Soft Gel Capsules

The small, easy to- wallow capsules are rich in Phytocannabinoids. They are made using patent-pending nano-emulsion technology which makes the CBD four times more bioavailable for the human body when compared to conventionally formulated CBD. The soft gels are pharmaceutical grade. Each one has 25mg of a broad spectrum oil per capsule. In addition, they have 40 different terpenes that are believed to ease pain. You take these capsules as you would any other supplement. Swallow the soft gel capsule with a glass of water. They are remarkably easy to take and a great option for people who do not like using tinctures and prefer to just add a CBD capsule to their daily vitamin regimen. The average cost is $0.11 per milligram.

NanoCraft CBD Muscle & Joint Stick Broad Spectrum 250mg

This stick contains 250mg of broad spectrum hemp oil. The oil has also been infused with healing herbs and essential oils. The smell of the stick is very crisp and refreshing. It was almost mint like. You apply the topical directly to the area experiencing soreness. It’s great to use after a hard work out when you want to ease muscle discomfort. If you suffer from bouts of arthritis, then it can be applied directly over the skin covering inflamed and painful joints. The stick contains coconut oil, beeswax, menthol, ginger root, cayenne, sunflower seed oil, peppermint, lavender oil, and more. The oil goes on smooth and you instantly feel a warming sensation that I found very pleasant.
