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.

From their in-depth assessment of other CBD brands, they created CBD and other hemp-derived products that they believe excel in quality. Their company is based in San Diego, California. Although there is some background information about who they are, they do not have individual bios about who makes up the company

    The website’s FAQ page has a handful of answers to questions about shipping, product information, and their membership program. They do have an extensive blog that has ample information about CBD, the endocannabinoid system and more. To contact their customer service, there is a phone number and message box on the website. Their message box is not instant messaging. It states that they will reply within a few hours or send you an email with the answer to your question.

    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 Vida Optima and they are not BBB accredited. Vida Optima third-party tests for potency. From the products we received, the lowest CBD variance was the Immune Boosting Fruit chews where we found there was 25.31mg of CBD per chew which is 0.31mg less than listed for a CBD variance of 1%.

The THC level is 0.003% which is within the acceptable 0.3% allowance. Neither sample was tested for contaminants.
