Shanti Wellness Review

Shanti, the Sanskrit word for peace and tranquility, is the guiding inspiration behind Shanti Wellness, a chic blender of broad spectrum CBD with some of nature’s most famous adaptogens. Shanti looks the part with beautiful branding and a positive message; they definitely talk the talk. And we’ve watched this brand blossom by walking the walk with quality ingredients and potency test results for each SKU. Adding just a few more contaminants tests to their protocols will make them a five-badge vendor.

Shanti Wellness markets themselves as an apothecary, though they never explicitly say that, by using adaptogenic ingredients like curcumin (turmeric) and ashwagandha in their blends and exuding that feel. The founders supposedly experienced chronic anxiety and stress courtesy of the weight of modern life and sought natural answers in Ayurvedic herbs. Through their research they encountered CBD oil, experienced the benefits themselves, and decided to include it in their artisanal blends. The team has over 20 years of experience between them in the holistic field, and they exude a decidedly modern, holistic essence.

Their CBD hemp is cleanly sourced from Colorado, and while Shanti does not disclose their extraction method, they get the Quality Badge since we have seen current third-party tests that confirm their cannabidiol is free of residual solvents.

The Shanti Wellness broad spectrum product line is beautiful, aesthetically speaking, with simple, sleek packaging, and they do not exclusively sell CBD products. For our purposes, we will only discuss the products containing CBD extract. First up are the Balance Premium Hemp CBD tinctures with broad spectrum CBD oil, hempseed oil, grapeseed oil, peppermint, and Stevia. Next, the Soothe Hemp CBD Body Balm features a delicious, all-natural blend of skin-loving ingredients like eucalyptus oil.

The last product category is the CBD softgels that come in three varieties: Relief with curcumin, Calm with MCT oil and Beta-caryophyllene, and Tranquil with ashwagandha. All contain water-soluble CBD nanoparticles for better absorption, making Shanti Wellness eligible for the Innovation Badge.

Currently, Shanti Wellness is doing decently on the transparent testing front, but not quite well enough to earn our Safety Badge. Three of their five SKUS have up-to-date, independent test results posted for cannabinoid content and residual solvents (arguably the most important contaminants test). However, one SKU is missing a test, and the Relief CBD softgels results are in an internal document dated by over one year. The brand needs to get these two SKUs current and also include contaminants tests for pesticides, microbials, and heavy metals to get this final badge in their arsenal.

Finally, we see on the Shanti Wellness Insta page that they have donated to local activists in the LA area, so we are happy to award the Charity Badge.

Bottom Line – Shanti Wellness is a beautiful CBD brand with a good vibe and quality ingredients. All they need is to up their contaminants testing game, and we foresee the five-badge rating in their future.

    Hi Shanti Wellness. Thanks for reaching out, I see that Shanti is still in queue to be looked at again. I apologize for the delay, we are working as fast as we can at updating our content. If you have direct questions, please email us at [email protected] instead of posting on the brand forums.

    Hey Guys, I am reaching out to see if you can update our ratings on your website. We have updated our website and also added lab results as requested. This is my 4th time messaging you guys.

    I am all for transparency and i am glad you guys are one of the advocates of that as well, but you gotta be fair. We are a small company and do whatever we can to educate our consumers about the benefits of cbd- but your rating is hurting our business. You gave 5 stars to another company who buys the SAME EXACT product as us from the SAME EXACT manufacturer but you did not dock them for the bovine derived softgels but you docked us.

    All i am asking for is a fair review and score. We have complied with your policies and guidelines and am just requesting that you update our ratings like you promised us last time. Thank you.

    Hi there, we have contacted you after implementing the updates above, and you have not replied nor changed the review.
    I hope this platform can be an honest, progressive space for the consumer to gain some understanding and not a play for play which bashes small companies.

    Please update.

    Thanks for the quick reply. First and foremost I’m glad that this website does not monetize based on reviews. I agree that there are a lot of fake cbd companies out there and I’m glad that someone is doing their due diligence on weeding out the good ones from the bad ones. I appreciate your feedback and we will go ahead and update our website so the information is easier to find. Once updated we want to request if you can update your review.

    I would also like to request if you can modify your post about the emulsifiers. There are many companies who buy from the same vendor as us and do not list the polysorbte ingredients on their website. Transparency is one of our cornerstones and that is the reason we list it on our website. I don’t mind that you talk about it but the review has a negative angle and I’m juat hoping you can modify it a bit.

    Also, regarding the innovation badge, our products are also manufactured using the nano emulsion technology which lead to superior absorption (same as Joy organcis). I will add an infographic fact sheet on our website that will list all of our core competencies and benefits. Hopefully that will enable us to get the 5th badge.

    I appreciate your attention towards this matter.

    Thank you so much for your comment.
    Our brand reviews are solely based on the information found on your website, therefore if it is not published then we equate that to being none existent, unfortunately. This sounds like it would be a simple fix for you though! If you do have your CoA’s upon request, all we ask is that you publish these updated test results to each sku. Also with the charity, seems like it would be a simple fix! Add a section on your website informing customers of your ‘giveback’ or ‘community donations.’

    Our methodology can be found on our website to better define what we look for in writing our brand reviews.


    Your brand review is simply calling out areas in which your website does not meet our criteria, I apologize if you do not accept this perspective. We grade brands as if we are a top notch educated customer looking for the best product on the market and this requires us to be super critical with a tactful approach. This industry continues to be saturated with unethical brands just looking to make a quick buck, we do not believe your brand to falls within that though. We believe that you offer great products, we would just like to see CoA’s readily available and attached to each sku AND tell us about who you support in your community or organizations you donate to.

    Also, we do not take payment from brands for ‘better reviews,’ nor do we accept payments for advertising at this time. We’ve become a ‘Watch Dog’ in the CBD industry with high ethics and like to create honest brand reviews so customers can get a better idea of what to look for.

    We would be happy to circle back to update the review once you’ve made the necessary changes to your website. 🙂 Please contact us once you have made these small adjustments and we will happily grant you Safety and Charity, thus making you a 4 star brand!

    Thanks for posting your feedback about our products. However, I will like to request that next time you post an article you list the truth and honest facts.

    The issue I have with your post above is that we actually do offer testing for all of our products and they are available upon request. All of vendors have a copy of the product testing and we could have offered it to you as well, only had you asked us prior to posting this.

    2nd- we do partake in charity and community service. Our Ceo was part of Lunch On Me – where she and the Lunch On Me organization fed the homeless people on Skid Row. We also partnered with Lions Club and passed out blankets to people in need during Christmas. Just because we don’t advertise doesn’t mean charity and community service is not part of our Ethos.

    3rd- Joy Organics, a company you reviewed buys from the same vendor as we do. We have the same exact soft gel as them but you did not mention anything about theirs and decided to you critized our inclusion of the insulfiers.

    We try to be as transparent as we can and never ever hide information from our customers.

    This is obviously a way for you guys to get paid to improve the bad rveveis that you leave on purpose (similar to what yelp does).

    I don’t mind that you leave reviews but if you do please leave honest ones. False reviews like these hurt our business. We have worked very hard on getting this business started and don’t need people trying to falsely tear it down.

    If you have any concerns or need more info please call or email me. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
