CBDistillery: CBDrop

Ingredients: Coconut MCT oil and extracted hemp oil.

Tasting Notes: Clear yellow. Brisk natural aroma, bright citrus-pine notes.

Full spectrum, CO2 extraction.

CBDistillery is known for offering consistently high-quality product at great values. They are featured regularly in our rankings, because we love their broad selection of products and their transparency around third-party testing.

CBDistillery took a hit in the customer service category this time around. That’s because we’ve seen a spike in customer complaints about unresolved shipping issues during the last few months.

And we advise shoppers to be aware of their strict return policy when you place your order; after seven days, you’re out of luck.


  • Great value
  • Tons of product options
  • Competitive prices

  • Slow website
  • Shopping experience can be confusing
  • Recent customer complaints about shipping and service

Charlotte’s Web: Extra Strength CBD Oil

Ingredients: Fractionated coconut oil, organic mint chocolate flavor oil (organic sunflower oil, natural flavors), hemp extract

Tasting Notes: Clear, gold liquid. Mint is the dominant flavor, with a subtle hint of chocolate.

Full spectrum, ethanol and CO2 extraction

Charlotte’s Web is likely the CBD company with the most widespread brand-name recognition. That’s because they are one of the oldest and most trusted CBD brands around, and they’ve received extensive media coverage in the last few years.

In the past, we were concerned that their labeling made it hard to understand how much CBD was in each product. Since then, Charlotte’s Web has made their packaging more informative, and added information about CBD potency to their website’s product descriptions.

Like many leading brands, Charlotte’s Web offers a database of third-party lab results for each batch of each product. You will need a batch number to look up results, though.


  • Seed-to-sale control over product
  • Long-established, trusted brand
  • Great website experience

  • Customers complain about slow shipping
  • Difficult to find some product information
  • You need a batch number to access the lab result database

Ingredients: MCT oil, non-alcoholic natural flavoring, CO2 hemp extract CBD.

Tasting Notes: Clear green-gold. Mild flavor. Pine and citrus notes lend a pleasant bitterness.

Full spectrum, CO2 extraction.

Fab is a reader favorite at CBD Hacker, combining a pleasant flavor and high-quality ingredients with a passion for customer service. They offer a variety of flavors and potencies to meet the needs of a variety of consumers.

They’ve also been able to substantially lower their prices in the last year, making their products more accessible to more people.

Fab is currently updating their branding, and we’ve noticed that some information, such as third-party lab results, has disappeared from their website after the most recent update.


  • Nice taste with different flavor options
  • Domestic hemp from Colorado
  • Responsive customer service

  • In the middle of rebranding – website is currently missing some information
  • Transparency practices are not as robust as many other brands

Ingredients: Organic extra virgin olive oil, GG BioEnhanced Complex (organic turmeric root, organic rosemary leaf extract, organic lecithin), phytocannabinoid hemp extract.

Tasting Notes: Clear gold liquid. Smells and tastes like high-quality olive oil.

CBD Isolate, CO2 extraction.

Green Gorilla is one of only two USDA-certified organic CBD brands that we’ve encountered, and they’re a recurring favorite in our rankings.

Their high-quality, organic California olive oil base has a mild, pleasant flavor that would be right at home in an upscale restaurant. And they offer both pure CBD isolate and full-spectrum products to meet a variety of needs.

And as an alternative to the typical eyedropper-lid delivery method that so many CBD producers use, Green Gorilla packages their oils in a spray bottle.


  • Good value
  • Pleasant, mild flavor
  • Quality olive oil base

  • Patchy customer service

This Hoboken-based company recently opened its doors with a very limited selection of products. But they’re already getting positive reviews from consumers, with phrases like “life-changing” popping up in the reviews.

So, what sets this brand apart? Hoboken Hemp blends CBD from Kentucky-grown hemp with essential oils of inflammation-fighting eucalyptus, lavender, and turmeric.

And they offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, as well as free shipping, making it an easy choice to shop with them.

Oregon-based industry newcomers Mission Farms grows their own hemp for seed-to-sale control over their CBD products.

Ingredients: Organically grown full spectrum phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, hemp seed oil, grape seed oil.

Tasting Notes: Clear gold liquid with a natural hemp aroma. Brisk, piney flavor.

Broad spectrum, ethanol extraction.

Oilly is one of the newest companies to make it onto our list this year, having just launched in late 2018.

But they won us over with their THC-free, broad-spectrum CBD tinctures, which are made from organic, non-GMO hemp. And they use a nano-emulsion formula to make their CBD more easy for the body to absorb.

We were big fans of their tincture’s bright, fresh flavor, and we were pleased with their quick and helpful customer service.


  • Good value
  • Certified organic hemp
  • Fast, friendly customer service

Ingredients: Hemp oil, olive oil, peppermint oil, monk fruit, silica, monolaurin, quillaja saponaria, ascorbyl palmitate, alpha tocopherol, water

Tasting Notes: Clear gold. Sweet, herbal flavor, like sweet mint tea.

Full spectrum, CO2 extraction, decarboxylation, distillation

PlusCBD Oil is owned by CV Sciences, one of the major players in the hemp and CBD industries. They import the hemp for their CBD from Europe, because domestic farmers aren’t yet growing hemp at the scale the company requires to keep up with demand for their products.

But if you love sweet southern-style iced tea, this is the one for you. That’s because it’s sweetened with monk fruit, which is 300 times sweeter than sugar.

And since it’s formulated with Plus CBD Oil’s distilled CBD extract, much of the bitterness associated with full-spectrum CBD is nowhere to be found.


  • Varied product selection
  • Competitive pricing
  • Comprehensive lab results available for each batch

  • Imported hemp (from Europe)
  • Strict return policy

They wowed us with their fast, informative customer service, going the extra mile to offer education and suggestions about how to use their products.

On the downside, their tincture only comes in one flavor and potency, and their price point is a little bit higher than the most competitively priced brands.


  • Fast, helpful customer service
  • USDA-certified organic hemp
  • Pleasant flavor

Our Methodology

So, what sets this ranking apart from all of the other CBD oil reviews out there?

Well, our rigorous testing process is designed to make our rankings as fair and unbiased as possible. Here’s how it works:

We selected a mix of established brands and rising stars to evaluate for this ranking. To do that, we looked at the products CBD users are recommending in online communities, and which brands are generating buzz in the industry. We also included companies that had previously reached out to us, asking to be evaluated.

In the end, we whittled down a starting list of 60 companies, and ended up fully evaluating about 35 different samples. Then, we scored each one in these five main categories:

  • Product quality and value
  • User experience
  • Customer service
  • Reputation
  • Transparency and accuracy

We want to make sure that our CBD oil reviews are as relevant as possible, for as many different people as possible. That’s why we incorporated feedback from our readers into our scoring metrics this year.

Product Quality and Value

As always, the product category carried the greatest weight in our final scores. That’s because it included some of the most important questions for consumers:

  • Quality: What are the ingredients in this oil? What extraction methods did they use?
  • Sourcing: Where does the hemp come from? Was it grown organically to ensure that it is free of pesticides and heavy metals?
  • Value: What is the price per milligram of CBD?
  • Flavor: Can I stand to take this regularly?

It was important to us to eliminate bias as much as possible, so we used a blind testing process to evaluate the products for taste, aroma, texture, and appearance. Every sample was decanted into an identical container labeled only by number.

We’ve also updated the way we award points for flavor in this ranking, to account for the increased bitterness that is typical of higher-potency full spectrum products.

User Experience

A company could be offering the best product out there. But if the webstore crashes every time you try to make a purchase, then it doesn’t do you any good. That’s why we closely evaluated each company’s website for performance, design, and accessibility.

We also checked to see how easy it is to find important information, from shipping and return policies to the ingredient lists for each product.

Customer Service

We only want to recommend companies that stand by their customers. If you have a question or a problem with your CBD product, you should be able to count on quick, friendly, and knowledgeable customer care.

In addition to using secret-shopper-style research to see how each company’s customer service measured up, we also checked to see how consumer-friendly their policies are. For example, we looked at:

  • Shipping policies
  • Return policies and satisfaction guarantees
  • Assistance programs
  • Loyalty or rewards programs

Among the top brands, the quality of their customer service was often the deciding factor that determined a higher score.


For the reputation category, we looked at each company’s track record. We scoured the web for reviews to see what customers have been saying over time.

We also looked for any red flags, like negative media coverage or patterns in customer complaints.

Finally, we investigated how each company interacts with customers. Do they respond professionally to critical reviews?

Transparency and accuracy

Finally, in an industry that essentially regulates itself, transparency is massively important to building trust for consumers. For this category, we looked at the types of information that each company was willing to share. For example, we asked:

  • Can you see who owns or manages the company?
  • Is the company forthcoming about where the hemp comes from?
  • How much will they share about their manufacturing methods they use?
  • Do they post up-to-date third-party lab results?
  • What kinds of things do they test for?

Most importantly, we sent samples of each product to a third-party lab for CBD and THC potency tests. While some variation is to be expected, no products that tested more than 10 percent below the advertised amount of CBD are included in this ranking.

We compared our lab’s analysis to the CBD quantity listed on each product’s label. And where companies made their own lab testing public, we looked at how extensive, up-to-date, and easy-to-find their lab results were.

Value: CBD Oil Price Comparison

We know that the cost of CBD oil is a major concern for most consumers. But it’s not easy to do a side-by-side comparison of the real value of the top brands. That’s because the varied potencies and bottle sizes of different products mean that the price tag isn’t necessarily the best indication of the value you’re getting.

To help you find the best CBD oil values, this table that compares the cost per milligram of CBD in each product, so that you’ll know exactly what you’re paying for your CBD.
