Active Botanical Co.: 60-Second Summary
When we think of the Active Botanical Co. line of CBD products, a certain word comes to mind— underwhelming. We’re underwhelmed with information about the actual hemp and CBD isolate used in their products and about the company itself. We know very little about the ingredients (there are no ingredients lists posted whatsoever), and there isn’t a great selection or anything dynamic to write home about. Unfortunately, the brand doesn’t give us enough to receive a glowing review.
Active Botanical Co. Brand Review
Active Botanical Co. uses pure CBD isolate (no full spectrum products here) they say is made from 100% organic hemp. But we don’t know where specifically they source their supposedly organic plants and have no idea what extraction method is used to procure their isolate. These are two key elements you should look for before purchasing any CBD oil product, and they make up the parameters for our Quality Badge. Accordingly, we are unable to verify the quality of the products in this case.
Active Botanical Co. offers four formulations with CBD isolate: Relax, Energy, Therapeutic, and Pet. Each formulation contains a proprietary terpene blend geared toward the corresponding intention. The Relax formula has terpenes to help you relax, the Energy product will give you a boost, and the Therapeutic features a combination of these two terpene profiles with increased CBD content that’s marketed to those with ‘serious issues’. Lastly, the Pet formula is obviously intended for furry companions.
Each formulation solely comes in the form of tinctures of varying strengths, with the exception of the Therapeutic formula which also comes in a CBD salve. The main problem we have with these CBD isolate products is that we have no idea what’s in them! What carrier oil is used? What’s lurking in the CBD topical? There are zero ingredients lists, a big no-no for us.
Infusing terpenes into a CBD isolate product is a great idea and one that many vendors now practice to ease the minds of consumers who don’t want THC but want more of what the amazing hemp plant has to offer. Active Botanical Co. wants us to take their word for it on their ‘proprietary terpene blends’ and gives barely any insight into what each blend consists of. Our only clue is a mini-description of the Relax formulation that purportedly contains limonene and beta-caryophyllene, both of which are found in plants other than cannabis.
Maybe their terpene blends are amazing, and maybe they use organic MCT oil as a carrier. In which case, we’d be stoked. But the lack of disclosure with ingredients in every single product is concerning, and ipso facto, we can’t really speak to them.
Active Botanical Co. gets the Charity Badge for offering discounts for military, seniors, and the chronically ill. However, we have to withhold the Safety Badge, since they only conduct independent testing on their batch CBD oil, not every SKU.
Moreover, you have to have a QR code from an Active Botanical Co. product to even see any of these batch test results. Meaning, you can’t see important safety tests before you buy, only after purchase.
Bottom Line – Active Botanical Co. has a limited product line of tinctures and one topical with CBD isolate and terpene blends that we cannot verify due to a lack of information and visible test results.
