Isodiol: 60-Second Summary
Meet the international CBD juggernaut with multiple brands, divisions, and offices all over the world. You may have seen their products under such popular names as CBD Xtreme and Pot-O-Coffee. Isodiol certainly knows what they’re doing when it comes to scaling CBD production, but we’re justifiably uneasy about a few things. A void of any test results or any charitable endeavors for such a globalized and profitable business is highly concerning.

Isodiol Brand Review
Isodiol is a global CBD giant with multiple divisions and a large family of brands. They tout themselves as an international leader in CBD-based pharmaceuticals and consumer products, and their numbers don’t lie. The company has many divisions, including pharmaceutical laboratories and is actively expanding their operations and influence.
Investigating Isodiol is kind of like doing battle with a hydra — when you think you’ve found something solid, another head pops out. There’s confusion here that makes us uncomfortable. For example, they claim to source EU organic hemp to procure their proprietary ISO99™CBD isolate, a compound that also includes turmeric powder. But plenty of their CBD products do not clearly state whether they contain isolate or full spectrum oil. ISO99™ is the main ingredient in many offerings, but one of their tinctures is labelled as multi-spectrum CBD. Where was this CBD oil sourced?
Isodiol acquired 51% of an organic hemp cultivation company in Nevada in 2018, so perhaps this is where they get some of their full spectrum varieties. Still, the lack of disclosure is unsettling.
Furthermore, Isodiol currently has the ability to legally source, cultivate, and/or manufacture hemp in North America, Europe, and Asia. There’s been a lot of buzz lately about CBD companies sourcing cheap, dirty hemp from China full of contaminants like heavy metals and pesticides. While this might not be the case with Isodiol, they provide zero test results to ease our minds. Considering their global reach, it’s hard to recommend them without these.
The Isodiol family of brands is massive and includes Rapid CBD, CBD Xtreme, Bradley’s, NanoBoost, CannaCeuticals, Aquivita, IsoDerm, Iso-Sport, and Pot-O-Coffee. Under these brands, the company offers the following:
- CBD Tinctures
- CBD Capsules
- Water-Soluble CBD
- CBD Topicals
- CBD Oral Sprays
- CBD Beverages
- CBD Edibles
- And more…
It’s difficult to speak to the integrity of Isodiol products overall because there isn’t an overarching commitment to natural ingredients, organic sourcing, etc. The Bradley’s line of tasty CBD tinctures is totally clean, with no PG and all-natural flavors. But the CBD Xtreme brand of energy drinks, gummies, alkaline water, and e-liquids is teeming with PG and artificial flavors and colors.
We are not fans of the CannaCeutical topical line either, where we found phenoxyethanol, PEG, polysorbate, and steareth-20 in the products. Although we encounter these nasty ingredients a lot, there are plenty of CBD vendors out there sticking to the natural stuff. Isodiol is not one of them.
Bottom Line – This globalized conglomerate is definitely raking in the profits, but corners are being cut. Full spectrum and isolate products are often not clearly labelled and sourcing isn’t 100% clear. We urge Isodiol to not only conduct but publish independent lab results for their family of brands to ensure the public that they are indeed safe.
