Reef CBD is a newer, hemp-derived CBD company based out of Southern California – which is precisely what you’d expect when you first look at their product line. A few months back we received an unexpected package from Reef CBD, we were reviewing Cannaterra skincare (which you can find on Reef CBD’s website). The package included their full line of 250mg CBD tinctures and a bottle of their 10mg sour soft chews. After doing some independent research, we agreed as a team to give Reef CBD a chance.
What our team was initially drawn to was the beachy feel of the packaging and names of the tinctures. Each tincture was named after a popular beach: Cardiff (Blue Raspberry), Cocoa Beach (Peppermint), Newport Beach (Orange Citrus), and Venice (Lemon Citrus). We had high hopes that these tinctures would make us feel like we were in the sunshine with our toes in the sand.
Unfortunately, after a few weeks of testing, our team came to a unanimous decision that the 250mg tinctures were not necessarily right for us. Since we are all used to using higher levels of CBD oil, we found that to find relief we were taking much more than usual. Luckily, this isn’t too big of an issue because Reef CBD does offer 500mg and 1000mg tinctures.
Tincture Ingredients: Premium Hemp Seed Oil, Proprietary Blend Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Flavored Essential Oils, Stevia Extract
Now, the gummies are a different story. We LOVED the gummies! They were soft, flavorful, not too sour, and 10mg each. Sometimes CBD gummies are such a novelty that we find ourselves reaching for them and eating them like candy, with the Reef CBD sour gummies we were able to control ourselves. Maybe it was the fact we got the sour gummies and not the sweet, but the gummies passed the Hemp Helps review process, and we would recommend them!
CBD Soft Chews Ingredients: Corn syrup, sugar, water, modified corn starch, gelatin, fortifier, less than 2% citric acid, natural flavor, canola and/or palm oil, natural colors, and confectionery glaze.
Some Key Takeaways
Reef CBD markets their products as being scientifically developed; using the finest sourced, natural, organic components from around the globe. Throughout this process, they have been able to assist the body’s natural balance by stimulating the endocannabinoid system through the use of harmonizing essential oils, with other active ingredients allowing for increased uptake, and higher therapeutic value.
Their products are rigorously tested to ensure the highest quality standards, contain only non-detectable THC levels, and are independently lab tested by a third party to ensure the highest standards, proving that they are providing a quality product each and every time.
We found that Reef CBD does include updated lab results available on their website (yay!), although while looking through it seems that some of their products contain less CBD than the labels claim. To avoid this, be proactive and look at the lab results before you purchase and we also encourage you to reach out to Reef CBD to ask questions!
We’ve also noticed that since we received our package of products, they have added new products to their lineup. Some of those products include honey sticks, vape oils, capsules, flavor shots, and hemp flower. If tinctures and gummies aren’t what you’re looking for, you may be able to find something else from Reef CBD you enjoy!
