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

    Pure Kana is a CBD company based out of Scottsdale, Arizona. They pride themselves on striving to bring the highest quality CBD products to their customers at an affordable price. The company was co-founded by Jeff Yauck and Cody Alt. They currently serve as directors on the company team. Both have experience in the health and wellness industry and have founded other healthy food companies. You can read their bio, and all the other team members’ bio on the website.

    Their FAQ page offers answers to common questions about CBD, how to take it, and its effects. Shipping and refund policies are also outlined on the FAQ page as well as on their own separate page. To contact the team, they list a phone number, address, and message box on the contact page. Their products are available both in select stores and online.

    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. Currently, there are no FDA complaints for Pure Kana. However, they are not BBB accredited, and have a current score of F, with 26 complaints filed over the past 3 years. The complaints are mostly around the inability to reach customer service and returns. However, they have a 4.4 Trustpilot score with over 5,800 reviews.

    All of their products are third-party tested to assess for purity and potency. We assessed the results of the vanilla CBD drops. There is a batch number and QR code on our product. We found our product’s lab report which showed there is 586.1 mg per bottle, which is 13.9mg less than listed for a CBD variance of 2%. This is well within the acceptable 10% CBD variance. The THC was 0.07%, which is less than the 0.3% allowable limit, and this sample was tested, and passed for microbials, solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and foregin materials.

    Manufacturing Process

    All of Pure Kana’s CBD is made with non-GMO hemp that is grown organically in Kentucky, USA. They refrain from using any chemicals, heavy metals, or solvents in the growing process. To extract the CBD, they use CO2, which is a solvent-free method and often referred to as the Gold Standard in extraction methods. Through extraction, they create full-spectrum CBD which includes up to 0.3% THC, terpenes, other cannabinoids, and other hemp-plant constituents. They also create broad-spectrum CBD and CBD isolate which are both free from THC.

    Pure Kana Tinctures Overview

    Pure Kana’s full-spectrum CO2 extracted tinctures are available in 300mg, 500mg, 600mg, and 1000mg, 1600mg, 2500mg and 5000mg per bottle. Each bottle is 30ml and made with MCT oil and natural flavors. Flavor options include: natural, mint, vanilla, citrus, fruity as well as a sleep aid option.

    Sleep Aid Gummies review

    The Sleep Aid CBD Gummies come in a clear plastic bottle. Each gummy contains 25mg of broad-spectrum, CO2 extracted CBD along with 5mg of CBN, 2mg of melatonin, and a blend of hops, chamomile, ashwagandha, and black seed oil. These are intended to be taken before bed time. They are made with a pectin base, which means they are vegan, along with natural colors and flavors. There are 60 gummies per bottle. Each gummy is a deep red dot, covered in sugar. They are soft and squishy, and taste sweet and fruity. The price of this product is $89.99 and with 1500mg per bottle, each mg of CBD is $0.06.

    There is a batch number and a QR code on our product. We used the batch number to locate the lab report. The report showed 24.7mg of CBD per gummy, which is 0.3mg less than listed for a CBD variance of 1%. This is within the acceptable 10%. The THC was undetectable, and this sample was tested, and passed for microbials, solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and foregin materials.

    This product is ideal for people who are looking for an all-natural CBD sleep supplement that also promotes relaxation through adaptogenic herbs.

    Great site and Great ProductProduct Family:Tinctures & DropsProducts Used:CBD 300mg and 600mg Tinctures
    While shopping around for a GOOD company or site to buy high quality CBD from, a friend turned me onto Pure Kana. I was looking for something for my anxiety and nerves that have started to affect me again with the rise of covid19. So i checked it out.. The site is easy to navigate. The product information leaves no questions.. I started out with buying the Mint flavore 300mg bottles of oil .. I was trying CBD for the first time so i started low. I got the product in about a week and tried it the same day it arrived. I havent had an anxiety attact since i started on this. I recommend it to friends all the time. If your looking for something to replace prescription meds for anxiety i highly recommend asking your doctor about starting CBD. Its worked wonders for myself and friends i have that use it ..
