About the company
Kats Botanicals was established in 2016 by Justin Kats, whose aim was to offer high-quality natural solutions to improve human health and wellness. To achieve its mission (offer consumers pure and safe products at affordable rates), Kats employed a team of experts and professionals such as chemists and doctors, web developers, writers, marketers, and a team of researchers to ensure everything runs smoothly and is in benefit of the customer before the company. Although they have not been certified by BBB and USDA, they have been certified by FDA. Besides, since we are keen on each company’s reputation, we decided to check whether they had received any warning from FDA, but there was none.
In addition, for customers who might have any concerns that need clarification, we recommend contacting the company’s support team. They have multiple ways of reaching out to their support teams, such as email address ([email protected]), phone number (877 301-9923), chatbox, or physical address (Kats Botanicals 619 Old Hickory Blvd Tennessee 37138). Its support team is accommodating respondents within 24 hours. Since we wanted to confirm this, we contacted them via email concerning their regenerative farming practices. Our email was responded to within five hours, precise but to the point.
Consequently, since the company needs to keep track of its reputation, products, support systems, and team members, it has a review page where customers are to give honest feedback or evaluation depending on their interaction with either of the three (products, website, and customer support). The company has collected over 13,000 reviews, of which 90% of them are positive. However, the negative reviews have been responded to politely assuring the customers that necessary adjustments would be carried out. They also have social media platforms that bring customers together and allow them to interact with one another or the company directly. Their social media platforms have accumulated traffic of over 10,000 followers. Besides interaction purposes, customers can reach out to the support team for more guidance: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. They are also used to keep the customers informed about new trends or products.

Although they obtain their hemp from Colorado like most CBD companies in pursuit f quality hemp, they grow it in Colorado’s rocky mountain in a high altitude area. The farming practices are under close supervision and monitoring to ensure to artificial fertilizers or pesticides are brought in to boost faster growth of the hemp plant. Since they grow their hemp in rocky areas, they use a specialized drip method to water their plant. Although they highly rely on the hemp plant, which carries a bigger percentage of the total ingredients, they also have other significant natural elements approved by their team of researchers and medical experts to ensure safety and effectiveness.
The processing begins right after the hemp arrives at the manufacturing facility, certified by the FDA. Since they are only interested in the useful cannabinoids and terpenes, they use ethanol, which is ineffective compared to CO2. In addition, most companies prefer CO2 since its eco-friendly compared to ethanol or any other extraction method. Their chemists ensure appropriate chemicals are used during processing and minimize the total number of chemicals to minimize the risk of contaminating the environment and the end products.
After the products have been crafted, they are tested by an independent third-party lab for safety and quality affirmation. Since we had ordered some gummies and tinctures to help us confirm their lab reports, we decided to scan the QR codes offered on their stickers. All the products had no detectable amount of THC and contaminants. We noted some variance in potency levels, though it was between the acceptable ranges of 2%; gummies had 6.2%, while tinctures were 3.4%.
Range of Products
Despite the company being legalized to engage in organic farming, they are also legal manufacturers of hemp-based products. It uses organic hemp plants, MCT oil, and other natural elements to develop different formulations in full spectrum. Its products include gummies, tinctures, isolates, and topicals; they don’t offer capsules and pet products.
Kats Botanicals CBD Tinctures
The tinctures are manufactured with CO2 hemp plant extracts alongside MCT oil in the full-spectrum formulation. Before they are released to the market, they are scrutinized by the lab to ensure they are 100% pure and contain the labeled amount of CBD and THC. Besides, although they are offered in a 30ml bottle, they come in different potency ranges of 500 mg to 2500 mg. In addition, each serving contains a market dropper to allow customers to administer the correct dosage of 1 ml per day. It is recommended to put the 1ml drop under your tongue for about one minute before swallowing it to yield effectiveness. Although they are recommended to be administered orally or sublingually, they can also be added to your favorite beverage or food.
Kats Botanicals CBD Isolate
Since very few companies offer isolates, they have taken advantage of their isolate products to gain fame within the CBD market. Despite being availed in powder form, they are formulated in full-spectrum using organic hemp and MCT oil and are 100% pure. In addition, they have no detectable amount of THC and are discreet. The company recommends customers start with a low dose as they progress to a high end depending on the body’s reaction; currently, they only offer 1000 mg formulation, which goes at $29.99.

The company recommends at most two gummies a day offered in the potency of 10 mg each and come in a pack of 30. Currently, the company only offers berry gummies at $29.99.
What we like about the company
The company offers quality products that are organic and non-GMO. Despite their manufacturing facility to have been certified by GMP, all its products have been certified as organic and have been tested for purity and potency affirmation before being released to the market. In addition, they engage in natural farming, which helps their hemp to exist naturally till the harvesting period. Customers who don’t find their products effective are allowed to return the products for a full refund within 3o days. Lastly, they offer 15% military discounts and consider discounts to people living with long-term disabilities.
What we don’t like about the company
Although Kats Botanicals contain numerous advantages, a few areas need improvement to make them better. Some products don’t have QR codes, making it hard for customers to verify the lab results stated on the labels. In addition, they only offer free shipping to people who have exceeded $100 order purchases. Lastly, they have heavy marketing emails, which most customers don’t like.
Although we recommend its products, there are a few weaknesses that ought to be addressed to sustain the heavy competition. We believe Kats Botanicals has room for improvement since they have experts watching each process right from the seed level till the products are in the hands of the consumers. In addition, they need to extend their line of products and offer various trending products such as vape and pet products to attract a wider market.
