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.

Range of Products

Tinctures

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 ..
