About the Company

WelCel CBD is a physician-founded company. Dr. Lisa Gardner, who is a board-certified, surgically trained OBGYN, founded WelCel after recognizing the benefits of individualized, natural therapies to her patients. With this realization, she transitioned into private practice treating her patients with alternative, naturally-derived therapies in the field of hormones, anti-aging, and aesthetics. In addition, WelCel CBD was born to support her patients through the multiple benefits of CBD. Dr. Gardner was named “Top Doctor in the Country” by Newsweek Magazine and highly regarded across the nation.

In addition to Dr. Gardner, there is ample information about the company’s team and board members with pictures and full bios.The company’s headquarters is in Fort Worth, Texas. There is an address, phone number, and chat box to reach customer service.

The website has a page dedicated to educating its customers about CBD, how it works, and how it is different from marijuana. In addition, there is an option to download a free CBD guide book with even more education materials. They have a FAQ page with further information about CBD, but do not answer FAQs about shipping and refund on this page.

All of WelCel’s products are third-party tested twice. Each product has a QR code as well as batch number and the lab reports are available on their website. We assessed the report for their 500mg full-spectrum tincture which showed there is 15.91mg of CBD per ml, which is 0.69mg less than listed for a CBD variance of 4%, which is within the acceptable 10% variance. The THC level is undetectable, which is below the acceptable 0.3%. This sample was tested, and passed for heavy metals, solvents, pesticides, and microbes.

Manufacturing Process

WelCel’s farms are located in Kentucky. They use non-GMO hemp in their growing process, which is also sustainable. The farms their hemp is grown on have been in growing for 3-4 generations. All of their products are made in the USA, using CBD that has been extracted via CO2 and third-party tested (twice) for contaminants and potency.. The type of CBD they use is either broad-spectrum, or full-spectrum, which includes the other hemp plant components which create a synergistic, entourage effect in the body. The only difference between the two is whether or not there is THC (up to 0.3%).

WelCel’s products are formulated with other natural herbal ingredients to create CBD blended products. They guarantee that each batch of every product is vegan, mold-free, pesticide-free, and free from heavy metals. The manufacturing facility is in Connecticut and it is GMP-certified.
