The Bottom Line

My review of Proleve is excellent. They publish the exact potency and purity for each product directly on each corresponding product page on the main website. When a customer purchases CBD from Proleve, they will know the quality of each product from the beginning. Proleve also carries a wider range of CBD potencies and extracts than comparable brands, ranging from 25 mg up to 5000 mg in full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate options.

They offer premium quality organic hemp derived CBD products that are available in tinctures, gel capsules, topicals, gummies, isolate powder, bath bombs, as well as pet and vape products. Their products range in price from $10 to $260, with their highest price point being $.36 per mg of CBD for the single bath bombs. However, excluding the bath bomb prices, their average price point is $.06, meaning that Proleve’s product prices are lower than average when compared to other organic brands in the market selling GMP compliant, non-GMO, premium hemp derived CBD products.

In addition to affordability, the consumer also benefits in terms of accessibility, with the variety of Proleve extract options, higher organic hemp quality, and outstanding customer service. They offer free shipping with a $50 minimum purchase, or a shipping charge is calculated at checkout. A 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee accompanies all products.

The accuracy variances for these Proleve products vary widely concerning potency, with two products testing below the 10% variance limit, and two products testing higher than the level allowed. There is room for improvement in formulation accuracy. Their products did pass all standard purity tests for residuals, solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants. No synthetic ingredients are used in these organic Proleve CBD products.

Pros: Cons:
  • Organic, non-GMO, vegan products
  • Bulk Buy savings
  • Veterans discount
  • International shipping
  • Some accuracy variances in potency were higher than the acceptable 10%
  • No centralized repository for third party lab results
  • $50 minimum order required for free shipping

About the Company

Proleve hails from Tampa, Florida and is on a mission to offer non-GMO, organic Colorado hemp that undergoes a clean CO2 extraction process. All Proleve CBD products are made in the USA, from start to finish, and the brand prides themselves on excellent customer service, at which they succeed.

As part of their growth vision for the future, the company is committed to “delivering premium organic CBD products” and adheres to rigorous testing and quality control standards to ensure purity. According to the company, each product is handcrafted and FDA audited, and is produced in a GMP compliant facility with pure Colorado hemp derived CBD that is non-GMO and 100% organic.

Transparency

Independent CBD testing is a vital quality and safety control measure to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are as close as possible to the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products in my Proleve order were third party tested for the standard CBD and THC potency and passed all testing for contaminants such as pesticides, microbials, and heavy metals.

Rather than a centralized testing hub, all of the third party lab results for Proleve products are scattered throughout the main website. Each individual product page lists only the corresponding lab results for one product at a time. Customer support was contacted through email, concerning where to locate all the third party lab results. An agent replied to the query within 1 business day with the information requested, guiding me to a centralized testing link not accessible online:

Accuracy

It was easy to match my products to the independent third party lab reports posted online and through the testing link. As far as the lab results for the 25 mg gummies, this product had 26.2 mg of CBD per serving (1 piece), which is more CBD total than the 750 mg label with 786 mg total CBD. This is under the acceptable 10% variance at 4.8%, according to the independent third party lab results.

The independent report for their batch of their 750 mg gel capsules had a 2.8% variance in CBD with 771 total mg of CBD, which is also below the 10% accuracy variance allowed. The 500 mg lab report for their unflavored tincture, however, had a CBD variance of 20.8% with 604.6 mg of total CBD, which is higher than the acceptable 10% variance.

All products in the order tested under the legal 0.3% THC limit, and all of these products passed purity testing for pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants, as seen here on the 50 mg broad spectrum gummy product page:

Reputation

Established in 2019, Proleve products are made from ingredients sourced entirely from small to medium sized farmers and growers, who are also committed to organic, all natural farming practices. Proleve’s catalog offers a high volume of organic products that are 100% natural and independently third party lab tested for potency and purity.

In 2020, the company has shown a heavy focus on growing revenues through product and extract additions, and on growing their business throughout their home state of Florida. Proleve adheres strictly to a “standard of internal excellence” for every CBD product they offer.

Manufacturing Process

Proleve is a legal, authorized grower of premium organic, non-GMO Colorado hemp. They use a clean CO2 extraction method to safely remove cannabidiol from their organic hemp without using solvents, and they grow their hemp without pesticides, as witnessed in their independent lab testing. Proleve formulates each of their CBD products with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier, for maximum bioavailability.

All Proleve products are manufactured in a GMP compliant facility. After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is a vital quality and safety control measure utilized by Proleve to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents. They conduct rigorous independent lab testing for all of their products and post the results online, concerning both purity and potency.

Range of Products

They offer premium quality organic broad spectrum, full spectrum, and isolate CBD extract that is available in tinctures, gel capsules, topicals, gummies, isolate, bath bombs, as well as vape and pet products. Their products range from 25 mg to 5000 mg of CBD, and are slightly lower priced than other comparable organic CBD brands, with an average price point of $.06 per mg.

CBD Gummies

Their edible or oral gummy slices are proudly all natural, vegan and gluten free, according to the company. Proleve uses all organic ingredients, such as glucose syrup from wheat, cane sugar, and fruit pectin. These gummies come in assorted, unique natural flavors and colors. These gummies are offered in both full and broad spectrum varieties, and they are CO2 extracted, before being blended with MCT oil.
