Diamond CBD Review: 60-Second Summary
Diamond CBD certainly talks the talk, and we love hearing about organically-grown hemp from Scandinavia, HPLC testing, supercritical CO2 extraction, GMP certification, and centuries of experience cultivating the finest hemp. We appreciate the efforts Diamond CBD takes to provide documentation in support of the claims made on their site, in addition to providing innovative products with a multitude of flavor options.

Diamond CBD Brand Review
Diamond CBD presents themselves as scientific, methodical, employing a team of researchers that never compromises on quality. Their non-GMO hemp is grown according to organic practices in Kentucky, Colorado, and Scandinavia, and they utilize supercritical CO2 extraction, the most expensive and environmentally friendly of current CBD oil extraction methods. Diamond CBD supposedly oversees every facet of production, from the growth process to distribution, conducting independent laboratory tests at multiple stages.
They may have started things off this way (we don’t know), but as it stands now, we cannot award Diamond CBD the Safety Badge. We did not find one current CoA; most were done over a year ago. Additionally, we were hard-pressed to find multiple contaminants tests, as most of the outdated documents they posted only tested for synthetics and listed the cannabinoid profiles. If they are still testing their CBD oil, they’re not providing consumers with the information and haven’t been for about a year now.
Diamond CBD certainly doesn’t hold back on variety in their CBD product line. In addition to the Diamond CBD brand, they sell MediPets and Biotech CBD which are both subsidiaries of Diamond CBD, something they don’t clearly state. They also sell vape pens and tanks and edibles from third-party vendors, but for our purposes, we’ll only discuss CBD products manufactured by Diamond CBD, including:
- CBD Oils
- CBD Vape Pods and Additives
- CBD Edibles and Beverages
- CBD Crystal Dabs
- CBD Topicals
- CBD for Pets
Diamond CBD oils are available in full spectrum and isolate options and Extreme Drops, a combination of vegetable glycerin and cannabidiol. The full spectrum and CBD isolate oils come in over 20 flavors… yes, 20. And except for the unflavored oils and a few CBD isolate varieties flavored with natural terpenes, artificial flavors are exclusively used to conceive gems like strawberry frosted donut and pumpkin spice. More often than not, the motivation behind choosing CBD oil in the first place is to get away from the fake stuff, so these crazy flavor choices feel, well, unnatural.
It’s difficult for us to approve wholeheartedly of the majority of Diamond CBD’s products due to the aforementioned missing safety tests and an abundance of artificial flavors and/or colors pretty much across the board (oils, vape, edibles, beverages). Not a good look.
Bottom Line- Diamond CBD is apparently committed to research and development to provide innovative CBD hemp extracts, but it appears what they’re really committed to is offering as many artificial flavor options as humanly possible. They have some work to do to gain consumer trust, and we suggest first updating their CoAs online and incorporating tests for heavy metals and contaminants for all SKUs.
