Just like other CBD companies, CBD Dixie Botanicals also offers a range of products to their consumers. The products range from tinctures, capsules, edibles, including gummies, topical oils to isolates. However, Medical marijuana online platform, which plays a more extensive umbrella Dixie Botanicals, also sells all the products mentioned above apart from their official website (https://cbd.co/dixie-botanicals/). According to this analysis, CBD Dixie Botanicals is performing fairly in the CBD competitive market. Considering other CBD products in the market, Dixie Botanicals price their products a bit high, going for $20 for ten gummies (0.20 per CBD/mL). Consequently, as per follow-ups we made, Dixie Botanicals is a company backed by Medical Marijuana Company which acts as its parent and is publicly traded. To our surprise, we expected that QR codes to work, but they didn’t. We aimed to get the proper tests on their website, but they disabled QR codes, so we couldn’t get the lab reports for the company. The company portrays a good picture by displaying great information about their operations on their website, but the lack of lab reports left a lot of questions in the back of our minds. However, we encountered a direct, explicit experience when it came to purchasing and shipping their products.

The company’s focus is to provide CBD for athletes and people who engage in physical activities.

As per our research, the company ends up losing a significant number of clients due to only catering for physical activity patrons.

For sure, with a parent company of such reputation, Dixie Botanical is an established brand with many reasons to choose it. The company is widely respected in terms of development and has the most renowned brand in the market of CBD today. Besides, Dixie Botanicals has developed a website that is easy to understand and easy to use at all times, enabling customers finding information or products easily. It has distinguished between oil, isolates, vape among various products using CBD Resource Guide. It has also come up with a unique manner of selling its products in the market by simply getting positive reviews on its products and posting them.
The most impressive part of their website is how they have described the hemp plant. The company has distinguished the hemp plant and the marijuana satisfactorily, even though they all belong to the Cannabis sativa L plant family. The website further explains that hemp plants for their product naturally contain less than 0.3% THC. In addition to that, CBD extracted from the hemp plant has also been outlined clearly, including how it is significant to the entire production process. Such information has been used to their advantage since other competitors are not able to provide it.
As we tried to looking deeper incompany’s details, especially on information concerning how the product is manufactured, it didn’t turn out an easy task. However, we did not get discouraged; we kept on looking until we realized that Dixie Botanicals CBD products are made from non-GMO hemp grown in the Netherlands. The good thing about the company is how they describe everything; actually, we would say it is exciting and satisfactory. The whole cultivation has been brought out unquestionably. As per information we received, the farmers grow hemp without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, but unseuntique farming methods just to come up with a more natural raw material. It is indeed not only exciting but also enjoyable, this allows the full-spectrum line, which contains other benefits such as phytocannabinoids, cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabinol (CBN), amongst others.
The company comes up with products such as oils, tinctures, slaves, and liquids that are compounded by base CBD oil. Also, the companies isolates are further refined to a purity level of 99% CBD isolate, a powdered product used in edibles and dabs.
Although the lab tests didn’t work when we tried to scan QR codes, the company takes pride in its triple lab testing philosophy to ensure purity is attained. The company conducts three tests as follows; when the oil is extracted from the hemp plant, when the oil arrives from the Netherlands to the U.S (cleared by the customs), and finally after product formulation. The company also carries various tests such as solvents, heavy metals, or harmful contaminants to ensure the product is suitable for consumption. According to our research, Dixie Botanicals carries out its third-party tests is very reputable, going by ProVerde.
Although the company claims to have several tests by a credible lab, still they are unable to disclose proof of their results. We decided to carry out tests by scanning QR using our phones applications, but we couldn’t get results. We went ahead and started an online chat, but it was not lively, so we thought making a phone call would be easier. However, their response on our phone call was considerably fast but with great disappointments. Whenever we requested verificationon of third-party tests on the product we ordered, the customer care servant told us it could go up to three or more weeks for them to send us the results, which to us was quite disappointing.

Why we like the company.
The most exciting thing about the company is how they have decided to brand their product and market it in the market. They have an exclusive manner of the product description to ensure their customers are entirely contented about their product. Another exciting factor is how they can nature their hemp plant. It is a clear indication of their desire to develop a more natural solution to the world.
Why we don’t like the company.
There are two reasons why we disliked the company and unless these reasons are adhered to, the company’s reputation will be brought down day in day out—their ability to not verify and inform their customers about the third-party test results. We don’t deny the fact that their time to time test and the involvement of a reputable company is involved; we still have doubts at the back of our mind on why they are not disclosing this information.
Another key takeaway is their focus on athletes and no other interested parties. The company could offer a wide range of services to a significant number of CBD users considering their focus on coming up with a more natural product in the market. Since the market is highly reputable and widely known, we think they should reconsider their market range.
We wouldn’t discourage anyone from using the product since the company has a good track record following their determination to develop a more natural solution. But, the company has to come out clearly on how they carry out their firming up to the third party tests they engage in to ensure they give quality to their consumers. However, we would seek the company to work on their QR tests to clear the air and doubts concerning either of their products. By doing so, they will gain more trust.
