Our Highest-Rated CBD Oil Brands of 2019

* Last updated September, 2019

The RatePoint CBD Oil Rating System

The CBD is growing faster than almost anyone expected. With new brands popping up every day, transparency about the products is more important than ever. Since CBD remains mostly unregulated, it’s essential to know what to look for in a brand before you choose to buy their products. Every product we mention goes through a rigorous review process that dissects the brand as a whole and the products they offer.

Here are the main points we look at with every CBD brand we review:

Quality

We want to make sure we’re recommending only the highest quality CBD products available. This means looking at how a company grows and sources it’s hemp, what their extraction process looks like, and what other steps they take between planting the seeds and bottling the oil.

Value

It’s important to us that you get the best value for your money. We’ll weigh the cost of every bottle with the quality of the oil and other added benefits. We also evaluate the best ways to save with every brand like buying in bulk or special promotions they offer.

Transparency 

Since the CBD industry doesn’t need to follow specific regulations or guidelines, we favor brands that are as transparent as possible and make their information easy to access. We evaluate how much information a brand discloses on their website about their process, their story, and how they publish their third-party lab testing results.

Customer Experience

When you leave our site and go to try a new brand, we want you to continue to have a fantastic experience. We look at how brands interact with their customers and their level of effectiveness meeting your needs. We’ll let you know what you can expect from their overall customer experience, including their return policies, shipping information, and level of customer support.

We don’t make our recommendations lightly. We want CBD to be as accessible as possible to those who need it and recommend a range of brands that meet people’s unique needs. Here’s a summary of our top-rated CBD oil brands.

Quality- 10/10 

Spruce sources all of their hemp from family-owned and operated farms in Colorado and Kentucky. The farms are known for their safe and sustainable farming process and consistently produce some of the highest quality and potency cannabis and hemp strains available for use for CBD. Spruce also uses a unique moonshine extraction method to create the best blend of low-level THC, high-CBD oil. All of the moonshine is completely filtered out of their product before it’s bottled to ensure that it doesn’t leave any aftertaste or effects other than pure CBD.

Value – 10/10

Their bottles come in two potencies — 750mg for $89 and 2400mg for $269. While the prices might seem higher, the cost per mg comes to $0.11, making their CBD oil less expensive than most other brands.

Transparency – 9/10

All of their CBD is tested by an independent third party and are guaranteed to be free of harmful chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Our Favorite High Potency Tincture

When Spruce says “Lab Grade” CBD, they mean it. Because they pack so much potency into one little bottle, it doesn’t leave any room to fuss with flavors–so while the taste isn’t for everyone (we love the green, earthy natural flavor, though), the tincture is highly effective. Third party reviews love this highly potent cannabidiol oil, claiming it helped them sleep better, helped with chronic pain, and even helped reduce essential tremors.

Pros

Free shipping

High potency tincture available

Uses sustainably farmed hemp

Full Spectrum hemp extract

Cons

Limited product options

Premium price

All of their CBD is full-spectrum, and they offer full-spectrum pet CBD oil as well. They use a CO2 extraction process to extracting the phytonutrients from each plant and retain the highest amount of CBD.

Transparency – 8.5/10

NuLeaf Naturals only provides third-party lab test results by specific request. Those who do receive their lab results via email report that they don’t offer full breakdown information for their entire product line.

Customer Experience – 9/10 

They offer free shipping in 2-3 business days to US customers only. They provide a full refund on new, unused, and unopened products only and you must pay for shipping when returning items. Since they are a larger company, their customer service also tends to be slower and less responsive than smaller companies with lesser product options.

  • High potency options

    What is CBD Oil?

    cbd oil and hemp leaves

    CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound extracted from the hemp and cannabis plants. Your body’s endocannabinoid system already works to regulate things like sleep, pain, anxiety, and your immune system, and CBD helps these systems function more effectively. CBD oil is usually made by combining the CBD extract with natural ingredients such as coconut oil, MCT, or other essential oils to make it safe for consumption.

    CBD and hemp oil has risen in popularity because of its powers to help with migraines, pain relief, anxiety, and sleep disorders. People are choosing CBD over marijuana to reap the benefits of the plant, without having to deal with any of the psychoactive properties of THC. Not to mention, CBD is legal in all 50 states, making it an accessible alternative to THC in places where it is still illegal. CBD vaping has also become a popular method of consumption, but we recommend oils as a great place to start.

    How To Choose The Right CBD Oil For You

    There are a lot of different things to consider when choosing a CBD product. And while we covered what we look for in a CBD brand, you might need to evaluate some other options on your own. We want to help you make the best choice possible, so let’s go over a few factors to keep in mind that will help you settle on the right product for you.

    CBD Concentration

    Knowing why you want to use CBD oil will help you decide what concentration, or potency, to choose. CBD tinctures and oils often contain other carriers in the oil, but the strength of the oil itself will determine its strength. Concentrations can range anywhere from 100mg per serving to 2,500mg per serving. We recommend that you start with a lower concentration if this is your first experience with CBD and work your way up. Once you begin to feel some relief, you know you’ve found the right blend for you. Also, keep in mind that CBD effects are cumulative so you may not feel the effects until after you’ve used it consistently for a while.

    Cost of CBD Tincture

    The cost of CBD tends to go up with blends of higher quality and concentration. It’s essential to find a balance between what works and what is within your budget. There are some affordable CBD oil brands as we’ve noted in our reviews. If you’re a new CBD user, it might help to choose a lower concentration, which will be a cheaper option, until you decide if it’s right for you. Although if you know, you will be using CBD in regularly, purchasing a higher concentration blend will allow you to use less at a time and help you get more use out of a single bottle.

    Full Spectrum or Isolate

    Full-spectrum CBD oil contains a range of cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes, which all work together to produce health benefits. An isolate typically contains a purer form of CBD without the other substances. Isolates may be more effective for temporary concentrated use. With a pure CBD isolate, you can also be sure that your CBD doesn’t contain any THC at all. This is important to consider if you live in a place where THC is illegal or need to pass a drug screening.

    Final Thoughts 

    CBD is promising to play a massive role in health and wellness. People all over the world use it for a wide range of benefits. We predict many more CBD brands emerging in the market, and as the research on the benefits of CBD continues, we’ll likely see even more ways people are using it to improve their lives. Check back often as we will help you navigate the increasingly-crowded world of CBD tinctures, and help you find the highest quality CBD-rich hemp extracts.

    Before incorporating CBD into your daily routine, it’s essential to talk to your doctor about how it could interact with your current symptoms or other medications.
