The Bottom Line

Transparency & AccuracyIcon

Transparency & Accuracy

4.0

The accuracy variances for our RVD CBD products concerning potency are good overall, with four checked products testing below the acceptable 10% variance limit allowed and one product over this 10% limit. Purity test results for microbials were passed by all five checked products, but only the tincture had a full panel of results for foreign contaminants, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents. RVD CBD was founded in 2019, with no FDA warnings or BBB complaints. 

 

Hemp QualityIcon

Hemp Quality

3.8

While there is little detailed information on their website about their farms or extract methods, their hemp is sourced from American farms. They offer broad spectrum CBD products that are promised by the company to be pesticide-free and non-GMO. However, limited purity tests for foreign contaminants, such as pesticides, solvents, and heavy metals, were available at this time, with the exception of the 750 mg tincture which passed all purity testing. Microbial purity tests were passed by all five checked products. 

 

Variety of ProductsIcon

Variety of Products

2.2

RVD CBD offers a variety of broad spectrum CBD products, including tinctures, topicals, whole flower, and edible peach ring, sour bear, and neon ring gummies. These range from 25 mg to 3000 mg of total CBD,  and each product is extracted using either an alcohol ethanol or CO2 process before being tested by independent third party labs. Most products are further formulated with easily digestible MCT oil. 

 

Customer ExperienceIcon

Customer Experience

3.0

Their website is easy to navigate and straightforward with a CBD blog under the “Education” heading on the main menu that explains the benefits of CBD and provides information about the effects of certain products and strains. There is no FAQ link on the main menu for easy reference by consumers, but there are links to the “Shipping Policy” and “Return Policy” at the bottom of each page. Product pages provide detailed product information but no extraction method. Consumers can easily “Shop” all products at once, or filter products by category using the main menu links. 

 

Price & DiscountsIcon

Price & Discounts

3.3

Prices range from $24.95 to $124.95 with an average price point of $.03 per mg, which is lower than average when compared to other brands in the market. Flat rate shipping of $4.99 is offered on all U.S. orders and a $19.99 flat rate on all international orders, with options for expedited shipping offered at checkout.

What Sets RVD CBD Apart From Competitors

RVD CBD was founded by wrestler Rob Van Dam in 2019 and uses American-grown hemp to formulate their unique variety of CO2 and ethanol extracted, broad spectrum CBD products. They also offer an excellent range of potencies between 25 mg and 3000 mg that are suited to all consumers, regardless of consumption experience. They have an average price point of $.03 per mg, which is far below the average price when compared to other brands in the market.

 

Pros: Cons:
  • Four products tested under 10% accuracy variance; all products passed purity testing for microbials
  • Solid variety of product options and potencies, including whole flower
  • No BBB complaints or FDA warnings
  • Flat shipping rates, expedited and international shipping options
  • One product tested over 10% accuracy variance limit
  • Limited purity testing

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

    After struggling with physical injuries, including multiple concussions, and after “nearly three decades in the squared circle,” wrestler Rob Van Dam founded RVD CBD in 2019. The brand was created to help people with active lifestyles and athletes prevent stress while finding healthy relief, and they are dedicated to helping consumers “manage daily life and soothe minor physical issues” with their variety of products and excellent range of potencies.

    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. We didn’t find FDA warnings for RVD CBD or any BBB complaints since 2019.

    Transparency

    Independent CBD testing is a necessary quality and safety control tool to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are identical to the contents of each final product a customer receives. RVD CBD has all of their products tested for potency and partial purity by a third party lab: however, to the best of our knowledge, these lab results are not posted online and were obtained through customer service after several inquiries.

    All of the products received by RVD CBD were third party tested for potency, but purity tests were only passed for microbials; other purity tests for foreign contaminants such as pesticides, solvents, or heavy metals were not conducted.

    Accuracy

    Using the database links provided by customer service, we matched five ordered products with the independent third party lab results for potency and purity from foreign contaminants. All checked products were confirmed by independent third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC, or no THC was detected.

    As for the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 300 mg edible gummy neon rings tested with 259.33 total mg of CBD, which is a 13.5% accuracy variance and over the acceptable 10% limit. The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 750 mg labeled edible gummy peach rings, which tested with 748.56 total mg of CBD or 24.95 mg per serving size of 1 peach ring. This is an accuracy variance of 0.19% and well below the 10% variance limit allowed.

    Reputation

    The brand’s growth has continued steadily for the past two years, as they attract more healthy fans of Rob Van Dam’s formulas and products. Working towards their grassroots goal “to produce and distribute the highest quality CBD products that are both strong enough and effective enough,” RVD CBD has inspired many loyal users to leave quite a wealth of voluntary feedback and product use suggestions on each corresponding product page online.

    Manufacturing Process

    RVD CBD is a legal, authorized grower of American hemp. Their broad spectrum CBD products are CO2 or ethanol extracted, and most products are further formulated with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability. After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is an important safety and quality control measure utilized by RVD CBD to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents and remains free of foreign contaminants.

    They conduct independent potency and limited purity lab testing for all of their products; however, the results are only available through customer service at this time and are not posted online.

    Range of Products

    RVD CBD offers broad spectrum CBD products, available in tinctures, a variety of edible gummies, topicals, and whole flower, ranging from 25 mg to 3000 mg. They are far lower than average priced when compared to other sustainably grown CBD brands, with an overall price point average of $.03 per mg of CBD and prices between $24.95 and $124.95.

    CBD Tinctures

    The broad spectrum CBD tinctures by RVD CBD are formulated with MCT oil for faster bioavailability, and are suggested by the company for oral or sublingual use. They undergo CO2 extraction and can also be added to beverages or food, per the company website. Several potencies and formulations are offered, as well as flavored and natural varieties.

    Buying Experience

    Their straightforward website is easy to navigate, with each product page providing comprehensive information for each item in that category, as well as specific ingredients, reviews, potencies, and uses recommended by the company; however, there is little information about their extraction method on the website.

    They have a CBD blog that explains the benefits of CBD and provides information about the effects of certain products and strains. There is no FAQ link on the main menu for easy reference by consumers, but there are links to the “Shipping Policy” and “Return Policy” at the bottom of each page. As mentioned earlier, all of the third party potency lab results available for the RVD CBD catalog are only available through customer service at this time.

    Customer service is available via email, phone and online message. They were contacted twice via phone, twice via online message, and twice via email, regarding their lab results for the ordered products. When customer support was called by phone a second time, a service representative responded to the voicemail within 2 days and provided the information requested. To date, no replies to the online messages have been received.

    An order and shipping confirmation email with tracking will be received upon order checkout, but users can also create an account and “Login” to check the status of their order. The order arrived via Priority Mail in a brown box that was discreet, and all products were securely packaged inside. RVD CBD carries a 30 day money-back guarantee on all products, as explained in the “Return Policy” online.
