Charlotte's Web Company Review
Charlotte’s Web™ was founded in 2012 when the Stanley brothers crossbred a strain of marijuana with industrial hemp, creating a high CBD, low THC strain. Their hemp is grown at their farm and greenhouses in Colorado, USA. They third party lab test for purity and potency, but don’t make it easily accessible on the site. CW offers a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. They are US Hemp Authority™ certified, a quality seal of approval that the company has earned through a third-party audit
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
CW supports a variety of charitable causes including: Realm of Caring™, Adaptive Training Foundation, Women’s Bean Project®, Center for Discovery®, Mile High Workshop, Rodale Institute™, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Denver Urban Gardens, and Science Fair Fun™. If we could add an extra star for supporting such a diverse range of charitable causes, we definitely would!
Their prices are on the higher end, but you get what you pay for when it comes to quality and reputation. They don’t have any deep discounting or bulk offers like some other competitors, but they do have an “Autoship” option which allows you to save 5%. The also have a rewards program where you can earn points to redeem for a cash discount. CW also has a Veterans Program which gives 15% off to military veterans
Charlotte’s Web™ sources hemp from their farms and greenhouses in Colorado. They have a proprietary strain of hemp plants called Charlotte’s Web
3RD PARTY LAB REPORTS
The company does disclose third party lab reports but they are not readily accessible. You either have to know your product’s batch number, or have to email the company directly to obtain them. Although the company does make lab reports public, the reports are somewhat limited and most tests shown either say “Pass” or “Fail” but with the specific numbers or concentrations withheld.
CW earns 5 stars for innovation because they are considered the originators of the CBD boom. Their proprietary Charlotte’s Web hemp strain with low THC and high CBD was the hemp strain that started it all.
TOTAL ASSESSMENT: A
Charlotte’s Web is a longstanding and reputable company who produces high quality products made in the USA. They lose points on transparency/accessibility because it isn’t very easy to view the third party lab reports— this requires a bit of legwork if you’re determined, otherwise we would assume most people won’t put in that amount of work to get the lab results. It makes us wonder why they don’t make the information easier to get.
Overall they are a very solid company and have earned a high rating of 4.5 stars.
