It promises to ‘deliver superior CBD products’ in the ‘way CBD should be.’ How true is this? Here is our full review for this brand; take your time, read, and understand it to know everything about it, including what it offers, what we like/do not like about it, specifications, policies, and our final say.
About the Company
Avid Hemp has an appealing website that says nothing about the brand, its founder, or the technical team. However, the homepage states that the company is committed to offering superior service in the hemp industry. As such, the 2017-established brand sources its hemp from Colorado and Florida farms and engages experts it fully understands. Besides, Avid Hemp claims that the people behind it had dedicated 20+ years of CBD research before fully birthing Avid Hemp. The company trades in full-spectrum CBD products but no isolates or broad-spectrum formulations. Its products include capsules, tinctures, pet items, vapes, gummies, topicals, and hemp flowers.
There are many CBD brands in the CBD space, and it’s the unique specifications that set a brand apart. The following are true about Avid Hemp;
Buying products with the Avid Hemp website is an intriguing experience. Products are grouped by solution/consumption method as ingestibles, inhalables, sleep, pets, and topicals, but you can select the ‘Shop All’ option to access all products in the company’s inventory. You only need to select the products, check out, give you billing and payment details, and the order will be processed. The standard shipping option takes 2-4 days to deliver goods, while the 2nd-day option delivers CBD products the following day. The customer care desk is responsive and kind since they responded instantly when we reached out to them through the chat feature. You can also reach the company using its physical address, phone number, or email address.
According to the Avid Hemp website, the company uses hemp from Colorado and Florida farms to manufacture its CBD products. It states that it took time to know these farms quite well, even before the brand was birthed. Avid Hemp fathoms who is behind the farms, the farm’s hemp quality, and their sustainable practices. Although the Colorado and Florida farms strive to be sustainable in their operations, they do not have a USDA certification for safe organic practices, but Avid Hemp promises to do everything to operate in harmony with its mantra of providing superior CBD products.
Once the hemp matures, they are harvested and tested for quality before being transported to the manufacturing facilities. Here, the safe and clean CO2 extraction method is employed to strip off CBD from the hemp surface. This technique is touted as safe in the cannabis arena since it perfectly clears out unwanted parts but leaves the versatile compounds that augment CBD effects on the body. The end products are in full-spectrum formulations, meaning that they comprise CBD, 0.3% or less THC, flavonoids, terpenes, and other phytochemicals.
Some of the products in Avid Hemp inventory have coconut MCT oil as the base, which is fixed in the mix at this stage. Other natural ingredients like melatonin are also added here. The next step involves sending the extracts to independent laboratories to conduct third-party tests. This quality control process confirms the label’s potency against the actual contents, especially for CBD and THC, and Avid hemp posts the results online through its website. It also states that should a client realize the results are outdated, he should contact the company using the provided email address, phone number, or chat feature to raise the issue.
Although Avid Hemp conducts third-party tests, the brand does not meet the requirements for this procedure. The tests are not limited to potency but should also examine extracts for external contaminants, mycotoxins, heavy metals, residues, and solvents. Sadly, it seems like the company does not test for these parameters, and if it does, it does not include the results on the lab reports posted online. As such, it needs to improve in this regard.

Our review for Avid Hemp was good, but there is room for improvement. The company .sources its hemp from Colorado and Florida farms that observe sustainable standards but are not USDA-certified. It also conducts third-party lab tests but leaves out external contaminants such as mycotoxins, heavy metals, microbials, and solvents. Still, the brand offers several means of reaching its customer care desk, including a phone number, an online form, a chat feature, and an email address, and the online agents are kind and responsive. As such, we readily recommend Avid Hemp as a good company but not without emphasizing the need to improve in the mentioned areas.
