How we review products
We buy CBD products and test them at KCA Labs in Irvine, CA for accurate levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids. In addition, Real Tested CBD also tests for pesticides and residual solvents. KCA Labs facility uses high-performance liquid chromatography to obtain the most reliable levels of cannabinoids.
We base every CBD review on the cannabinoid levels taken directly from the certificate of analysis of our independent laboratory. We post a link to the official lab results on each review, which makes us the most transparent CBD review site in the world.
We compare the accuracy and cannabinoid levels found in each product review to dozens of other CBD products that we have tested. And we ensure the product isn’t testing for potentially dangerous levels of pesticides or residual solvents.
What do the Expert Scores mean?
Our Expert Score (out of 100, higher is better) is determined by our in-house team of CBD experts based off the scientific results, the time it took to ship, the cost per CBD and the ease of use of the product itself. We have a high standard here because we want these products to get even better than they are now. Knowing that, a great score for a product is anything above 75. A score in the low 70s typically indicates a good but not amazing product. Anything below 70 we would be weary of because there are so many other great options available on the market this website clearly shows.

What Do You Test Here And How?
The first unbiased platform for testing hemp and CBD-based products in the industry. Along with CBD, we test for all of cannabis’ core compounds like CBG, CBN & even THC. We verify all pure “hemp CBD” products do not go over the .3% threshhold of THC. We only buy products legally available for purchase in the United States, Australia, Canada & the United Kingdom. Our testing partner, KCA Labs uses a 1260 infinity HPLC to analyze the concentrations, potency, and terpenes in the samples taken from our customers. This method ensures that consumers and dispensaries have the proper knowledge to carefully select treatment paths for their clients.
