The Bottom Line

Our overall impression of Receptra is that they have an emphasis on potent, high quality, all natural CBD products. While they do not have a vast range of different products, they do offer several different types, including oils, topicals, capsules, and pet products. Plus, there are different potencies within these product lines as well. Also, they third party test all of their products and grow their hemp without pesticides or chemicals.

Currently, there is not a lot of information available on the Receptra team itself, only that the founder, Rusty Scott created the company in 2015 after benefiting from the use of CBD himself after an injury. Also, although their products have a rating option, most do not have more than a few ratings or have no ratings at all. Their customer service team is available through phone, email, and instant chat, and we found them to be helpful, friendly, and comprehensive.

In terms of quality, it is evident that upholding high standards is a priority for Recptra. They did not have much information about their manufacturing process, but after chatting with a customer care representative in their live chat, we found out that they have information within a blog about their growing practices and were able to explain in detail their manufacturing process for us. They use hand planting and picking of their crops and an ethanol extraction process. They third party test each batch of their products, and for the most part, their CBD levels were within a 10% variance, and their THC levels were always less than the 0.3% cutoff. The one downside is that you need a QR code or batch number front the product before you can access the third party lab results. In other words, you cannot assess the results before making your purchase.

As previously mentioned, Receptra has a decent range of products. However, we have certainly seen a more extensive array with other brands. They don’t offer any gummies, edibles, or vape products at this time. We appreciate the different size and potency options available for many of their products.

When comparing the prices of Receptra products to others on the market, they are about average in the field. Most CBD tinctures from other lines range from $0.05 to $0.15 per mg of CBD. Receptra falls between $0.09 to $0.11.

Pros: Cons:
  • Partner with a variety of charities and give back
  • Satisfaction guarantee and 30 day return policy
  • Utilizes third party testing
  • Used hand planting and hand harvesting
  • Offer a rewards program
  • Fairly competitive pricing
  • All natural ingredients in all of their products, including topicals
  • Limited information about the company’s team
  • No link to third party lab results on product page
  • No information on manufacturing extraction methods on their website
  • Information on growing practices is hard to find and contained in a blog
  • Some CBD levels are outside the acceptable 10% variance

About the Company

Information about the company, Recptra is easily found under the “About Us” tab. Receptra was founded in 2015 by Rusty Scott after he had a fall on the ice and turned to CBD to help alleviate his pain. From there, he created this company with the mission of using all organic, Colorado grown hemp to create potent CBD products that are honest, high quality, and effective. The motto of the company, Receptra, is, “the truth is curative.” To them, creating top of the line CBD products speak for themselves and do not require any exaggeration or hype.

They state that their team is made up of hard working people who have found extreme value in CBD in their own lives, unlike some other companies which are made up of celebrities and athletes. They do not mention that there are any health professionals on their team. There is not much more information about who specifically makes up their team or if they have any medical or pharmaceutical oversight. The backstory about their founder, Rusty, is the only information about any members of the Receptra team available.

Receptra is a company that is fairly well known in the CBD arena and has been featured in Forbes magazine as well as LA Weekly. On google maps, they have a 4.8-star rating with just over 150 ratings (currently). Other CBD review sites have given Receptra high ratings and determined them to be a high quality and reputable company.

Their products have a rating and review option. Although the majority of their products have a 5-star rating, some have no ratings at all, and others only have a couple of ratings total. The small number of ratings makes it challenging to get an accurate sense of how people rate their products.

Their FAQ page contains a wide variety of common questions about CBD itself (how to use it, how to store it, if it is legal or not etc.) as well as some information about their shipping process and tracking capabilities. Although there is limited information about their shipping practices on the FAQ page, there is more detailed information about their shipping methods on their shipping and refunds page. They have three shipping options, including next day, second day, and standard shipping. They offer full refunds within 30 days of your purchase and vow to resolve any questions or concerns within 48 hours.

They have a satisfaction guarantee, which is stated on their “Satisfaction Guarantee” page. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you can return it for a full refund. Also, if any part of your package arrives damaged, they will replace the items. To request a refund, you can call or email their customer care team.

In addition to their flexible return policies, they also state that they are committed to giving back to the community. Their “Receptra Gives” page details how they partner with various social, animal, and environmental causes and engage in charitable donations.

To contact Receptra, you can reach them by phone from 7:30am to 6:00pm MST Monday through Friday, or 8:00am to 12:00pm on Saturdays. They also have their address and location via google maps available on their contact page. This shows that they are located in Centennial, Colorado. They mention there is a form you can fill out to reach them; however, there is no form that shows on the page. Although they do not list their email address on their contact page, they do list it on the FAQ page as well as in the footer of the website. They do also have a live chat option where you can instant message their customer care team during business hours.

Their product page provides information about how to use the product, the ingredients, as well as the size of the product, number of mg of CBD per bottle, and per serving. There is also information on what the product was developed for and some of the potential benefits. While they do list the type of CBD they use, which is full spectrum, they do not detail their extraction methods or amount of THC.

All of Receptra’s products are third party tested, however, there is no button on the product description page, which takes you to the third party lab results. There is a button in the top menu to the page labeled “Quality” where you can enter your batch number to access third party lab results. For some, this may not be as intuitive as seeing a link right on the product page to the lab results. Also, you will have to purchase your product to access the batch number before seeing the third party lab results. This means you cannot check for quality, potency, and safety before making your purchase.

There is a link in the footer of the website labeled “Third Party Testing,” however, it is currently a broken link and takes you to a “404 Not Found” page.

We compared the third party testing results from The Serious Relief + Turmeric CBD Tincture 33mg/ml, which we received by typing in the batch number to the search bar on the “Quality” page. You can also scan the QR code on the products. We found that there is 35.4mg/g of CBD, which means there is 1.4mg more CBD than listed with a 4.2% variance. This is below the acceptable 10%. There is 0.15% THC, which is less than the 0.3% cutoff. This oil also passed tests for microbes, heavy metals, and foreign matter.

For Transparency, Accuracy & Reputation, we give Receptra a 6/10 since there is little information about who is behind the company, a limited number of reviews on their website, and because there is no link to third party testing on each product on the product page. You must have the product batch number or QR code which you get only after purchasing the product. They also do not provide information on their growing practices or extraction methods on their “About” page. We do appreciate the satisfaction guarantee, broad FAQ page, and participation in giving back to the community. Also, the product we assessed for quality and accuracy via the third party lab tests showed that their product contents are within what is acceptable.

Manufacturing Process

Information about Receptra’s growing practices can be found in one of their articles labeled “Receptra Pure CBD Oil Hemp Harvest 2019.” We did not find this on our own and had to ask their care team via live chat where to find this information. From our point of view, detailing your growing practices in a blog, not an easy to find section of the website, makes accessing this information more of a challenge, and likely many people miss this information.

The blog states that they use genetically cloned hemp, which is cloned from their mother hemp plant to ensure each harvest is consistent for quality. Their farms are located in Colorado and fulfill all of the requirements of the Colorado Department of Agriculture for growing hemp. Colorado is said to be an ideal location for growing hemp due to its climate. The plants are grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals, and they note that ladybugs are an essential part of keeping their plants healthy. All the plants are both planted and harvested by hand to prevent damage to the plant or its constituents. The plants are then dried and hand shucked to separate the plant flowers and buds from the stems for further processing which is done onsite.

Unfortunately, Receptra does not provide much information about their manufacturing and CBD extraction process on their website. We contacted their customer care team to ask for more information about their manufacturing process, which they swiftly provided for us in detail. Their answer was as follows:

“We use a cold ethanol extraction that retains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the plant. Receptra uses food grade ethanol to wash the hemp, the same process used to create the vanilla extract, and then evaporate the mixture until we have only hemp extract left. The final result is our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, which provides a full entourage effect, and we believe increases our efficacy. Our products have gone through the decarboxylation process. Decarboxylation makes CBD more bioavailable, and thereby more easily absorbed by the body and thus more effective.”

They third party test all of their products through DB Labs LLC which assess the quantity of CBD, THC, and terpenes, as well as the presence of contaminants such as microbes, heavy metals, and foreign matter. This is important to look for when considering CBD products as, for the most part, CBD is an unregulated product, and quality and potency can vary substantially. With third party testing, you have the assurance that your product meets the THC requirement of less than 0.3% THC and contains the amount of CBD the label says it does. Overall, it is a very important quality control measure.

When looking at the third party lab results from Rest Full Spectrum CBD Tincture 25mg/ml, we easily found the batch number located on a green sticker on the bottom of the product. There was also a QR code to scan, which will bring you to the third party lab results as well. The results show that this batch passed the heavy metals, microbes, and foreign matter parameters. The quantity of CBD was 27.2mg/g, and for THC there was 1.2mg/g. This means that there is 2.2mg more CBD than reported, which is an 8.8% variance. This variance is below the acceptable 10% variance. Also, this means there is 0.12% THC, which is below the required 0.3%.

Range of Products

Receptra carried a variety of CBD products, including CBD tinctures, capsules, topicals, and pet products. They do not offer edibles or vape products at this time. Overall, they have a decent product range, therefore we have given them a 7/10 for Range of Products.

It can be applied directly to any areas of discomfort. Since each application will vary in amount, it is hard to say how many mg of CBD will be dispensed per application.

Receptra offers their Serious Relief + Arnica Targeted Topical in either a 1.25 oz container with 400mg CBD (formally Receptra Targeted Topical) or a 2.5 oz container with 800mg of CBD.

We had to contact customer service to find out more about their manufacturing process. We used the chat option during business hours. They replied within a minute or two with a very comprehensive answer, which detailed their manufacturing process and CBD extraction process. They were very helpful and comprehensive. Their response was as follows:

“We use a cold ethanol extraction that retains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the plant. Receptra uses food grade ethanol to wash the hemp, the same process used to create vanilla extract, and then evaporate the solution until we have only hemp extract left. The final result is our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract which provides a full entourage effect and we believe increases our efficacy. Our products have gone through the decarboxylation process. Decarboxylation makes CBD more bioavailable, and thereby more easily absorbed by the body and thus more effective.”

Overall we were very satisfied with their customer service team’s comprehensive answer and speed of response.

Products Reviewed

We reviewed almost all of Receptra’s products, which includes CBD tinctures, capsules, topicals, and pet products.

CBD Tinctures

Serious Rest + Chamomile Tinctures 25mg/ml

The Serious Rest + Chamomile Tinctures 25mg/ml comes in a small white and purple cardboard box which lists the name of the product, the CBD content per dose (25mg/ml), the type of CBD (full spectrum), the size (1oz) and the flavor (vanilla mint). There is a QR code on the side of the box, which, when scanned, takes you to their third party lab results. The back of the box lists a warning that pregnant or nursing mothers should not use this product and to keep it out of reach of children. The side of the box has the directions for use: “Adults take one full dropper before bed.” The supplement facts are listed under the directions. There are 7 calories and 0.9g of fat per ml. Under the supplemental facts, the ingredients are listed: MCT oil, sunflower oil, vanilla extract, peppermint, chamomile, linalool, and valerian root.

After opening the box, you will find a small amber glass bottle with a dropper lid. The lid is childproof. Much of the same information on the box is also listed on the bottle except for the nutritional facts. There is also a green sticker on the bottom of the bottle, which has the batch number that links to the third party lab results. The CBD oil had a potent chamomile scent and an earthy smell which you can perceive before opening the bottle. The oil itself is an amber, semi-thin liquid. There are multiple lines on the dropper to assist you in titrating to the correct dosage. The taste of the oil is quite pungent and had notes of chamomile, lavender, and earthy CBD. It left a tingly sensation on your tongue.

When we compared the lab results of this particular batch of products to the label, we found that the quantity of CBD was 27.2mg/g, which means that there iwa 2.2mg more CBD than reported. This represents an 8.8% variance, below the acceptable 10%. There was 1.2mg/g of THC, which means the oil contained 0.12% THC. This is below the required 0.3%.

The intended use of this supplement is to promote a good night’s sleep. Keep in mind, the FDA has not evaluated this product for efficacy, and we at Leaf Report have not verified these proposed benefits. The cost of this product is $79.99, and there was a total of 750mg of CBD per bottle. This means the price per mg of CBD is $0.11.

Serious Relax + Lavender Tinctures 25mg/ml

The Serious Relax + Lavender Tinctures 25mg/ml comes in a white and green cardboard box which lists the name of the product, the mg of CBD per dose (25mg/ml), the type of CBD (full spectrum), the size (1oz) and the flavor (ginger lime).

On the side of the box, you will find a QR code that will take you to their third party lab results. The other side of the box details the nutrition facts. There were 7 calories per serving and 0.9g of fat per serving. Each serving is 1ml, and the directions for use state “Adults take one full dropper in the morning.” There is a warning on the back of the box that indicates that this product is not to be used by pregnant or nursing mothers and to keep out of reach of children. The other ingredients are MCT oil, lavender, limonene, passionflower, and lime and ginger flavors.

Inside the box, you will find a glass ambertinted bottle that contains much of the same information as the box did. On the bottom, there is a batch number on a green sticker. The dropper lid is childproof and has multiple lines to allow the consumer to measure out how much CBD oil you are dispensing. This CBD oil had a potent herbal smell. You can detect the chamomile notes, however, the hemp smell is much stronger. The same goes for the taste. This CBD oil is quite strong in flavor; it is earthy yet still pleasant. The oil itself is quite thin and amber in color.

We called up the lab results using the product batch number. There was 23.5mg of CBD per gram of tincture, which is 1.5mg less than labeled. This means there was a 6% variance. This is below the acceptable 10% limit. The lab analysis found 0.09% THC, which is less than the 0.3% cutoff. This product also passed tests for microbes, pesticides, foreign matter, and solvents.

This supplement is intended to support relaxation. Leaf Report has not validated any claims made for this product’s. The cost of this product is $79.99, and there was a total of 750mg of CBD per bottle. This means the price per mg of CBD was $0.11.

Serious Relief + Turmeric CBD Tinctures

We received three variations of the Serious Relief + Turmeric CBD Tinctures: a 1 oz bottle with 33mg/ml, a 1 oz bottle with 66mg/ml, and a 0.5 oz 33mg/ml bottle with 0% THC. Both the 1 oz bottle with 33mg/ml and the 1 oz bottle with 66mg/ml are made with full spectrum, ethanol extracted CBD, while the 0.5 oz 33mg/ml bottle with 0% THC is made with ethanol extracted broad spectrum CBD.

The only difference between the 33mg/ml and 66mg/ml product is the CBD potency, otherwise, they are the same. Both arrive in a white and mustard colored box, which is labeled with the name of the product, the mg of CBD per dose (33mg/ml or 66mg/ml), the type of CBD (full spectrum), the size (1oz) and the flavor (fresh berry).

The side of the box has a QR code that brings you directly to the product’s third party lab results. The back of the box issues a warning that states this product is not intended for children, pregnant, or nursing women. The other side of the box has the directions for use: “Adults take one full dropper.” It does not indicate what time of day to take the tincture. The tincture is intended to assist with everyday stress and physical stress. They do not make any health claims concerning what this product can do. Keep in mind, the intended use has not been verified by our team at Leaf Report. Under the directions, you will find the supplement facts and ingredients. Each dropper (1ml) has 7 calories per serving and 0.9g of fat. Aside from CBD oil, the other ingredients are hemp seed oil, MCT oil, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, sunflower oil, and curcumin flavored with mint and berry.

The 0.5 oz 0% THC oil does not come in a box, just a glass amber bottle. This product is not for sale in this size on their website/ On the website it is only available in a 1 oz bottle.

The bottle inside is made from amber glass, and the label is similar to what you find on the box. The dropper lid is childproof and has lines to help you measure the amount of CBD oil you wish to take. The bottom of the bottle has a green sticker with a batch number for accessing the third party lab results.

This CBD oil has a light berry smell, and is bright yellow in color. The oil is quite thin and transparent. Flavorwise, you can taste the berry and mint notes, which leave a cooling sensation on your tongue. There is a distinct turmeric taste as well.

We compared the lab results using the product batch numbers on each of the bottles. For the 33mg/ml product, there was 35.4mg/g of CBD, which means there is 1.4mg more CBD than listed, a 4.2% variance. This is below the acceptable 10%. Lab analysis revealed 0.15% THC, which is less than the 0.3% cutoff. This oil also passed tests for microbes, heavy metals, and foreign matter.

For the 66mg/ml product, there was 65.4mg/g of CBD, which means there is 0.6mg less than indicated on the label. This represents a 0.6% variance, well below the acceptable 10%. There was 0.27% THC, which meets the 0.3% cutoff. This oil passed tests cfor microbes, heavy metals, and foreign matter.

For the 0% THC option, there was no batch number, so we scanned the QR code. We found that there was 35.7mg/g of CBD, which is 2.7mg more than listed, representing an 8% variance. This was still below the 10% acceptable variance threshold. This oil also passed tests for microbes, heavy metals, and foreign matter.

The cost of the 33mg/ml product was $84.99, and there was a total of 900mg of CBD per bottle. This means the price per mg of CBD was $0.09.

The cost of the 66mg/ml product was $149.99, and there was a total of 1980mg of CBD per bottle. This means the price per mg of CBD was $0.08.

The cost of the 33mg/ml 0% THC product was unknown, as they only offer this product in a 1 oz bottle on their website. Priced at $84.99, there was a total of 900mg of CBD per bottle. This means the cost per mg of CBD was $0.09.

CBD Capsules

The Serious Relax Gel Capsules

The Serious Relax Gel Capsules come packaged in a white and green cardboard box which was labeled with the name of the product, type of CBD (full spectrum), number of capsules (30), and potency (25mg/dose). There were supplement facts on the side of the box showing there were 3 calories and 0.43g of fat per capsule. The suggested use was “Adults tale 1-2 capsules in the morning.” There was a warning on the back of the box stating that this product was not intended for pregnant or nursing women or for children.

These capsules were intended for relaxation. There is not much more information on the product itself. The product page on the website does indicate that these capsules may help people to reduce stress. Keep in mind that Leaf Report has not confirmed this proposed use.

The bottle inside wasa made from a hard plastic that is amber in color and equipped with a child proof lid. It was labeled with the same information that appeared on the outside box. The other ingredients were MCT oil and sunflower oil, as well as berry and mint flavor. He outer gelatin capsule was not vegetarian or vegan friendly.

The capsules are an amber color and transparent. The smell was quite light and fruity, although there was no taste when swallowing the capsules. The batch number was stamped on the bottom of the bottle. We used the number to access the third party lab results.

The results showed 48mg/g of CBD, which is 23mg more CBD than advertised. This translates to a 92% variance, much higher than the acceptable 10%. It also showed 0.2% THC, which was within the 0.3% cutoff. This batch passed testing for solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, foreign matter, heavy metals, and microbes.

In total, there were 750mg of full spectrum CBD per bottle with 25mg of CBD per capsule. The price of this product was $69.99, which means each mg of CBD costs $0.09. Since the serving size is 1-2 capsules, there were between 15 to 30 servings per bottle.

The Serious Rest Gel Capsules

The Serious Rest Gel Capsules arrived in a small white and blue cardboard box, which was labeled with the name of the product, type of CBD (full spectrum), number of capsules (30), and potency (25mg/dose). The side of the box listed the supplement facts, which state that there are 3 calories and 0.43g of fat per capsule. The suggested use was “Adults take 1 to 2 capsules 45 minutes before bed.” The back of the box warns that this product is not intended for pregnant or nursing women or for children.

Inside, there was an amber plastic bottle with a childproof top and much of the same labeling as on the box. The gel capsules themselves are made from gelatin, an animal product that is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans. The capsules were an amber color and transparent. There was a slight chamomile scent to them, and since they are swallowed, there was no distinct taste. There was a batch number stamped on the bottom of the bottle. We used this to assess the third party lab results.

The results showed 40.9mg/g of CBD, which is 15.9mg more CBD than advertised. This translated into a 60% variance, much higher than the acceptable 10%. It also showed 0.19% THC, which was within the 0.3% cutoff. This batch passed testing for solvents, pesticides, mycotoxins, foreign matter, heavy metals, and microbes.

Given the name of this product, and the suggested timing of dosage, it is implied that this product’s purpose is to promote sleep. They do not make any claims about this product’s health benefits. The other ingredients include MCT oil, sunflower oil, linalool and valerian root along with vanilla, peppermint, and chamomile.

In total, there was 750mg of full spectrum CBD per bottle with 25mg of CBD per capsule. The price of this product was $69.99, which means each mg of CBD costs $0.09. Since the serving size is 1 to 2 capsules, there are between 15 and 30 servings per bottle.

CBD Topicals

Serious Relief + Arnica Targeted Topical Stick

Serious Relief + Arnica Targeted Topical Stick comes in a white and mustard colored box. The front of the box listed the name, mg of CBD (640mg), type of CBD (full spectrum), and container size (2 oz). The side of the box listed the suggested use, which states, “For best results, massage into clean, dry skin as needed. Apply to irritated skin, muscles, and joints for fast results.” They don’t make any claims about what this product can do, but it is clear that it is intended for use on sore skin, muscles, or joints.

There is a warning that CBD may be harmful if used by pregnant or breastfeeding women and to keep the product out of the reach of children. Underneath the ingredients were listed. They include coconut oil, mango butter, beeswax, jojoba, arnica, camphor, vitamin E, jasmine, and ylang-ylang. On the other side of the box, there was a QR code, which links to the third party lab results.

When assessing the third party lab results, we found that there was 10.288mg/g of CBD. Since the container holds 56g, that works out to 576mg of CBD per container, 64mg less than the quantity printed on the label. This works out to a 10% variance, which is right at the cut off of acceptable. There was 0.04% THC, which was well below the 0.3% cutoff. This product passed tests for all contaminants.

The product itself was a light yellow color and had the texture of butter. It smelled quite perfumey, and the ylang ylang was prominent. Overall it was a very pleasant smell. When applied to the skin, it did not fully absorb and left a bit of a waxy residue that felt soothing and hydrating.

The bottle contained 2oz of formulation and 640mg of full spectrum, ethanol extracted CBD in total. Since each application will vary in the amount used, it is hard to say how many mg of CBD will be dispensed per application and how many applications each bottle contains. The cost of this product is $54.99 which means each mg of CBD costs $0.09

Serious Relief + Arnica Targeted Topical

The Serious Relief + Arnica Targeted Topical 0% THC comes in a yellow and mustard colored box which has the name, mg of CBD per container (400mg), size (1.25 oz), and 0% THC on the front. The back warns that CBD may be harmful to pregnant or nursing women as well as children.

The other side of the box has a QR code that links to the third party lab results. On the opposite side, you will find the suggested use “For best results, massage into clean, dry skin as needed. Apply to irritated skin, muscles, and joints for fast results. External use only.” Underneath is the ingredient list, which includes coconut oil, mango butter, beeswax, jojoba, arnica, camphor, vitamin E, jasmine, and ylang-ylang.

This product is used for inflamed or sore muscles and can be applied, as needed to affected areas. However, Leaf Report has not verified these uses.

Inside the box, you will find a white plastic tub with a screw top. There was a label sticker on the top as well as on the bottom on the tub, which contains similar information to that printed on the box. There was also a batch number on a green sticker on the bottom of the box. The topical was a light yellow color and as firm as cold butter. To dispense the product, you have to press hard with your finger pad or use your fingernail to scrape some off. The topical has a fragrant smell of ylang-ylang and jasmine, which is overall very pleasant. The texture on your skin is a bit oily, and waxy. It sits on your skin yet feels smooth.

When we assessed the third party la results, we found that there was 11.1mg/g of CBD. Since the container holds 34g, this means that there was 388.5mg of CBD per box, 11.5mg less than indicated on the label. This works out to a 2.9% variance. There was no detectable THC, and this batch passed tests for heavy metals, foreign matters, and microbes.

This product sells for $44.99 and, therefore $0.11 per mg of CBD. Every application amount will vary, so we can’t say how many applications each customer will obtain from a bottle.

The Seriously Relax + Arnica Body Oil

The Seriously Relax + Arnica Body Oil is packaged in a white and green cardboard box. The front of the box lists the name of the product, type of CBD (full spectrum), mg of CBD per container (200mg), and container size (4 oz). The side had a warning that CBD may be harmful to pregnant or nursing women as well as children. The label also stated the suggested use which read “For best results, massage into clean, dry skin as needed. External use only.” Underneath the other ingredients were listed. They included MCT oil, jojoba oil, arnica oil, vitamin E, and lavender, vanilla, and camphor.

Inside the box, you will find an amber plastic bottle with all the same labeling that appears on the box. The oil itself had a delightful smell of soft vanilla and lavender. The oil was mostly clear with a slight yellow hue. It dispenses easily and had about the viscosity of olive oil. When rubbed into the skin, it was absorbed well and left a soft feeling on your skin afterward.

We compared the third party lab results to the label and found that there was 1.5mg/g of CBD, which works out to 177mg of CBD per bottle total. These results show that there were 23mg less CBD than indicated on the label and, therefore, an 11.5% variance. This exceeded the accepted 10%. There was 0.01% THC, which was within the 0.3% cutoff. Lastly, this product passed tests for heavy metals, foreign matters, and microbes.

This product was intended to soothe skin, relax tense muscles, and reduce stress. Keep in mind we have not verified these uses. The price of this product was $29.99 per bottle, which means each mg of CBD costs $0.15. Every application will vary in quantity, which means the number of applications per bottle will also vary.

Pet CBD

Receptra has two potency options for their pet CBD; 16mg/mL and 25mg/mL. Both options are full spectrum CBD and are 1 oz in size. Both arrived in a white and purple cardboard box with the name of the product labeled on the front as well as the potency (16mg/mL or 25mg/mL). The 16mg/mL product is intended for small pets, and the 25mg/mL product is designed for large pets.

The only other ingredient in this product was MCT oil, which means the tincture is unflavored. The side of the box lists the directions. For the 25mg/ml option, “Shake well. This product is intended for pets larger than 40lbs. Begin with 0.5ml orally or in food. Increase over time until desired results are achieved. Do not exceed 2 ml every 6 hours unless your pet is larger than 60 lbs. Do not place a dropper inside the pet’s mouth.”

For the 16mg/ml option, “Shake well. This product is intended for pets under 40lbs. Begin with 0.25-0.5ml orally or in food. Increase over time until desired results are achieved. Most cats stay under 0.25ml per serving. Do not exceed 1 ml every 6 hours. Do not place a dropper inside the pet’s mouth.”

There was also a dosing guide that showed a picture of the dropper and how to measure out 0.25ml and 0.5ml. Lastly, there was a QR code that connects to the third party lab results.

We compared both bottle’s third party lab results using their QR codes which gave us the following information:

For the 16mg/ml bottle, there was 18.5mg of CBD per ml, which means there was 2.5mg more than stated on the label. This represents a 16% variance, above the accepted 10%. There was 0.07% THC, which is below 0.3% cutoff. This product passed tests for heavy metals, foreign matters, and microbes.

For the 25mg/ml bottle, there was 19.1mg of CBD per ml, which means there was 4.9mg less than indicated on the label. This works out to a 20% variance, above the accepted 10%. There was 0.09% THC, which was below the 0.3% cutoff. This product passed tests for heavy metals, solvents, foreign matters, and microbes.

Inside the box, you will find a glass amber colored bottle with a childproof dropper lid. The information on the box was reproduced on the label. On the bottom, there was a green sticker with the batch number that may be used to look up the third party lab results.

The oil itself was semi-clear with an amber hue. It had a pungent hemp smell and taste. On the tongue, it left a bit of a tingling sensation. The product was about the consistency of avocado oil, which is thinner than olive oil.

The 16mg/ml bottle contained a total of 480mg of CBD and sells for $44.99. The 25mg/ml bottle contained a total of 750mg of CBD and sells for $69.99. This means with both options, each mg of CBD costs $0.09. Every pet will be different concerning how large of a dose they will require, but, on average, there were between 60 to120 servings per bottle when dosed at 0.5ml or 0.25ml, respectively.
