Green Gorilla: 60-Second Summary
Green Gorilla is pushing the boundaries of the CBD industry. How? They’re not just providing premium CBD products; they’re foraying into the hemp growing industry to promote sustainability and scalable, eco-friendly solutions around the world. This international outfit is a member of a tiny group of CBD companies that actually have the USDA organic seal. This means that all ingredients, all processes, are clean and sustainable. Green Gorilla is a company we trust. They fall short of a perfect score since we no longer find evidence of their charitable involvement, and they do not post comprehensive CoAs. However, this green company is making huge strides, and we are confident in their methods and products.

Green Gorilla Brand Review
Green Gorilla is building an international presence by expanding the world’s access to hemp through their multi-faceted business. Their CBD empire includes Green Gorilla, Gorilla FarmCo (the agricultural division), and MasterGrower™, an outfit geared toward hemp growers that provides sustainable solutions to cover 100% of their needs. All are centered on promoting the promise of hemp as a viable health and nutrition source as well as a clean material for textiles, fuels, and more. Green Gorilla is aggressively expanding their scope of operations, all while keeping things sustainable and honestly organic. They stay true to their “green” name.
Green Gorilla’s CBD products contain non-GMO, certified organic hemp from a variety of sources. Their CBD isolate in their oils is grown in Colorado and Europe, while their full spectrum CBD comes from their organic farm in Nevada. Their main line of CBD oil in both isolate and full spectrum varieties called Hemp & Olive™ features a blend of certified organic olive oil and their proprietary GG BioEnhanced Complex™, a mix of organic turmeric extract, rosemary leaf extract, and lecithin to increase bioavailability. All Hemp & Olive™ CBD oils, including the varieties for pets and horses, are USDA certified organic. This coveted certification is not something we see everyday in the CBD space and is a huge indication that Green Gorilla’s products are clean and follow stringent organic protocols. Well done.
In addition to CBD oils, Green Gorilla has an immaculate topical line. Their Botanical CBD Balm contains 100% organic ingredients, and the lip balm has mostly organic botanics. There are only two offerings, but these are some of the cleanest, top-of-the-line CBD topicals we’ve seen to date.
Because Green Gorilla’s Hemp & Olive™ line is USDA certified organic, we know it is free of pesticides and herbicides. However, to earn our Safety Badge, CBD companies must post comprehensive third-party test results for both contaminants and purity. Not only do we want to make sure there are no nasties like heavy metals, but we need to see the cannabinoid content. Green Gorilla claims to conduct these independent lab tests, and we have no doubt that they do, but we need to see the results posted online.
Bottom Line – Green Gorilla is part of a very small group of elite CBD companies whose sustainable and clean practices have earned them the USDA organic seal. Overall, we’re highly impressed with what they’ve been able to accomplish and the outstanding quality of their products.
