Envy CBD’s average price point overall is less-than-average compared to the industry. Their lowest-ticket item is their CBD bath bomb at $15, and the most expensive product in the entire catalog are their CBD tinctures that come in at just $80.
However, as far as value is concerned, the most bang for your buck are the CBD tinctures which are priced lower than most. Envy CBD’s bath bomb and CBD soap are spa-quality, but are more expensive from a concentration standpoint (the CBD costs more per volume).
Envy CBD seems to lean more toward curated, spa-like products that are lower in terms of concentration. Their CBD bath bomb is just 50mg of CBD, and the highest concentration you’ll find in the line is the 1500mg CBD tincture.
For those looking for efficiency with full spectrum CBD and the entourage effect, Envy’s CBD’s products appear to fit the bill. Judging from their recent CBD Certificates of Analysis, we can see the presence of tons of cannabinoids (even the rarely seen CBL!) in both their CBD tinctures and their CBD capsules. These independent test results point to Envy CBD’s full spectrum cannabidiol as potent and synergistic.
You may have seen the term ‘farm-to-table’ at your local, healthy eatery. The idea is that the ingredients sourced are not mass-produced, but instead come straight from the farm to the restaurant. Envy borrows the term as an accessible way to describe their CBD operation. That is to say, they extract their own CBD oil and control the formulation process.
While Envy does not own the farms where they source their hemp, these organic operations in Minnesota all meet our standards. The raw material is brought to Envy’s own lab where the plant material is put through ethanol extraction to render their CBD oil. From there, the company Ph.D. chemist formulates the cannabidiol into their simple CBD product line.
When it comes to safety testing, Envy really takes the cake. Not only do they provide potency tests for every single product, but they also provide all the tests for potential contaminants we require! Envy CBD goes above and beyond the Safety Badge by providing multiple contaminants panels and tests for terpenes and mycotoxins.
Envy is a charitable CBD brand, offering a generous discount on all products to military, veterans, first responders, and their families.
Functional ingredients? Check. Finally, what makes Envy CBD stand out is their inclusion of sustainable aloe in their CBD product line. It’s not a common ingredient in the CBD biz, and their supplier Aloecorp grows their non-GMO plants in Mexico without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Envy CBD even puts the aloe in their CBD tinctures for the win!
The best value in the Envy CBD product line is by far and away their 1500mg full spectrum CBD tinctures. Currently priced at around $80, this is a substantial value considering the clean growing and processing employed by Envy CBD. Also, independent lab tests reveal these to be a bonafide full spectrum treat, loaded with terpenes and a wide array of cannabinoids, including CBG and more. Another thing? We really like the off-the-beaten-path ingredients. They’re all-natural, and include aloe, MCT oil, hemp seed oil, natural flavor, and a bit of Stevia to make it all go down sweetly. Overall, an impressive product, especially for the price…
Envy CBD’s CBD aloe vera is our staff pick for a few reasons. One, this product is either unique to Envy CBD or at the least, pretty rare among most CBD vendors. Two, it’s a smart combination of ingredients: CBD and aloe. Aloe is perhaps the world’s most well-known natural sunburn treatment. And CBD has been studied to have powerful effects on inflammation, making it applicable to sunburns, specifically. We also see a strong amount of CBGa in this full spectrum skin-lover, which is a nice surprise, seeing as most CBD topicals tend to have super-scant amounts of other cannabinoids besides CBD, if any at all. We’re not fans of a couple synthetic ingredients here (phenoxyethanol and triethanolamine, to be exact), but these are common in aloe gels and don’t appear to present risks like parabens and other synthetics. This CBD aloe vera is our dark-horse pick for coolest product from Envy CBD.
Of the hundreds of CBD product catalogs we’ve researched, we’ve noticed something: CBD bath bombs can often seem like an afterthought. But not this one from Envy CBD; the colors and packaging are beautiful, very upscale-looking with spa-quality ingredients inside. These CBD bath bombs come in different colors/blends and have fantastically pleasant aromas. At just around $15, we think these make great low-budget gifts for the CBD lover in your life, or anyone to whom you’d like to give the gift of relaxation.
The best CBD edibles from Envy CBD have got to be their sour CBD gummies. These have broad spectrum CBD inside with CBGa and feature 10mg per gummy. The reason why we’ve selected Envy CBD’s CBD gummies as best for beginners is due to the low concentration. Beginners can start with just 10mg of CBD per serving and work their way up with each delicious treat. Plus, these CBD gummies contain no artificial colors or flavors, making them an easy health booster to get behind.
Here’s a list of the types of CBD products Envy CBD offers in their online catalog:
Envy’s CBD product catalog is simple, but we certainly don’t take away points for that. Check out what they have to offer:
Envy CBD has always had a reputation for transparency, even before it became commonplace for CBD vendors to regularly post their COAs online. They continue to remain on the up-and-up today by staying current with their independent lab testing. We also want to remark that Envy CBD’s test results are really easy to find and understand online (always a good sign). And the company provides comprehensive ingredient lists on all their products. While they might not have any pro-athletes endorsing them, Envy CBD always seems to quietly do right by their customers. However, we want to point out that Envy CBD does not currently appear to be accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
National Hemp Association, Member
Envy CBD is a member of the National Hemp Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the US hemp industry.
We honestly don’t know too much about the people behind Envy CBD, as not that much information is out there. On the company’s LinkedIn page, they state that they were founded in 2018 by ‘a collective of healthcare professionals, holistic wellness enthusiasts, and curious individuals alike’. According to Envy CBD’s LinkedIn account, they have a total of 6 employees based in California and elsewhere in the world. Envy CBD was co-founded by Raymond Yang, an entrepreneur with a background in sales and IT.
Envy CBD receives the COR Safety Badge for their excellence in third-party testing.
We give Envy CBD an A+ when it comes to testing their CBD oil and CBD products. Ever since they launched, Envy CBD has managed to stay current with their independent COAs for both potency and contaminants. And we really appreciate that Envy CBD puts these results online in an easy-to-find place (not everybody does that).
As far as standouts go, those definitely have to be the CBD tinctures and CBD capsules from Envy CBD that show a full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. We found both to be brimming with goodies like THCV (non-psychoactive), CBC, and many more.
We also want to point out that the broad spectrum CBD oil that Envy CBD uses in a lot of their CBD topicals features cannabinoids CBD and CBGa. Overall, everything checks out and then some with Envy CBD testing. Bravo!
Envy CBD is based in California, but they source their hemp from Minnesota, an interesting and uncommon choice. However, apparently the decision was made based on soil health and irrigation, both of which are optimal in the area where Envy CBD’s hemp is grown. The hemp plants are grown according to organic practices with natural sunlight and zero chemicals.
To process their CBD oil, Envy CBD uses ethanol extraction, a clean method known to produce potent extract. After extraction, the raw CBD oil is refined via chromatography to remove unnecessary waxes and lipids, as well as most of the THC. Envy CBD uses full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate in their product line, so the latter two will go through additional refinements to remove all THC and in the case of CBD isolate, all other cannabinoids.
After the refinement stages are complete, Envy CBD enlists the help of a chemist who formulates their products in their own GMP- and ISO- certified laboratories. Testing is conducted for contaminants in multiple rounds, and all SKUs undergo a final third-party potency test before hitting online shelves.

Bottom Line – There are some obvious standouts about Envy CBD, and the first is their industry-exceeding testing protocols. We really appreciate that they are consistently current and transparent with all their testing. We also think Envy CBD uses potent CBD oil, judging by their test results. Another huge plus is the affordability, with a lower-than-average price point and great value with their CBD tinctures. Finally, we like Envy CBD for CBD gifts, and we especially dig their CBD aloe vera.
