With news updates constantly warning us about the earth’s deteriorating condition, a company that cares about its internal environment and its entire production and manufacturing processes automatically checks the box. And that’s exactly what Root Wellness does. The CBD-producing brand is widely popular for many things, and its sustainable practices take the highest tier cake. Whenever possible, it incorporates safe environment practices by using soy ink for printing its packages. Such ink is organic and has no dangerous chemicals that add to the earth’s already-depleted ozone layer. Therefore, the brand reduces costs by using soy to make its ink and safeguards the environment. Besides, all the product packages are recyclable, ticking the box for the ‘Recycle, Re-use, and Recover’ philosophy. How about the brand’s CBD qualities? After all, this is the main concern because it manufactures CBD products from hemp. Peer into this review to know everything about it and whether it ticks your box for an ideal CBD producer.
About the Company
We could not find Root Wellness’s official website and are therefore unsure who started the brand, when it started operating, and who is in charge of its various departments. Besides, the brand does not say much about who makes up its team of experts. However, through Leaf Report and CBD.co websites, we learned a few things about the company. It claims to be practicing sustainable organic farming and uses non-GMO CBD oil-rich hemp to manufacture its products.
Furthermore, we also established that Root Wellness is highly reputable in the CBD arena. Although it does not offer money-back guarantees and discounts for military veterans, it is known for environmental conservation. Through its partnership with One Tree Planted, the brand encourages its clients to give back to Mother Earth by planting a tree for every product bought from its inventory. It’s also praised for using fully recyclable packages and using soy inks to print its packages.
The following characteristics are true to Root Wellness;
- Free shipping for all USA destinations
- Shipping typically takes two days
- There is no money-back guarantee
- There are no military veteran discounts
- Products feature raw full- and broad-spectrum formulations
- Soy ink-printed packages
- Multiple discounts
- Hemp source not revealed
- The extraction method not revealed
- Reward points
- Pesticide and herbicide-free CBD products
- Recyclable packages
- Most products are THC-free
- Hemp grown through organic farming practices.
Root Wellness is popular for producing high-quality premium CBD brands. However, the great reputation goes beyond the quality of its products and touches on its activities. It uses recyclable packages to pack its extracts, which is a plus, especially now that much emphasis is placed on recycling practices. Besides, instead of using chemical inks, it uses soy to manufacture its inks. This not only reduces cost but preserves the environment because it reduces the amount of harmful compounds released into the air.
Furthermore, the greatest reputation line is the brand’s partnership with One Tree Planted. This is a US-based non-profit making organization that believes in giving back to Mother Earth by planting at least a tree for every purchase. The partnership aims to encourage CBD consumers to plant a tree for every item they buy with Root Wellness. Interestingly, the term ‘Root’ in Root Wellness originated from this partnership. Many trees will be planted if people keep up with the spirit and heed the advice by planting a tree for every product bought. Of course, many have already been planted through this initiative, and many others can be planted.
There is barely any information about Root Wellness’ manufacturing process. Thus, we don’t know where its hemp farms are located, whether they are cGMP-certified, and the extraction method applied to extract CBD from hemp surface. Nonetheless, most of the brand’s products passed potency and contaminant tests, revealing that its manufacturing process factors in rigorous third-party tests. Such tests are safety and control processes aimed at verifying the purity of products and ensuring that the labeled THC and CBD potency match the actual contents and are well within the federal laws and variance acceptable limits.
Customer & Buying Experiences
We liked our customer experience with the Root Wellness CBD brand. Although the company does not have a website through which its products can be bought directly, it partners with CBD.co, an online marketplace that reviews CBD companies and markets their products. On the site, the products are grouped by category, including topicals, gummies, tinctures, and capsules. Shopping was rather intuitive and was guided by one’s preference. It basically involved picking a product and adding it to the cart. You can shop as much as you want and finally check out.
After checking out, the system asks you to provide billing & delivery destination details and credit card information. Once an order is confirmed, shipping starts and typically takes two days. There are multiple ways of saving, including redeeming your reward points if you have been following the company and sharing its link on social media platforms, leaving reviews, or shopping with them continuously. Additionally, there is a 15% off for first-time buyers, and the system sends you a promo code to activate the discount. Shipping takes place via USPS and is free across all states for orders worth $50 and above.

The former has an average price point of $0.15 per mg CBD, while the 400 mg option has $0.11 per mg CBD as the price point, showing that you save a lot by choosing the 400 mg gummies.

What We Do Not Like About the Company
Although we loved many things about Root Wellness, several kinks deserve ironing. For instance;
- Some of the Root Wellness products have inaccurate potencies, including the 150 mg menthol cream whose total CBD turned out to be 175.05 mg CBD
- Root Wellness does not reveal the method that extracts its CBD from hemp surface
- The brand does not reveal who makes up its team or who founded it, as well as when it was launched
- Unlike many CBD brands, Root Wellness does not reveal whether it has a money-back guarantee or offers the military veteran community discounts
- The brand’s hemp source is not revealed
- Product lines limited to gummies, capsules, tinctures, and topicals
- The brand does not have its site, and one is taken to another company’s page, i.e., CBD.co, to purchase its products
Our Overall Verdict
Generally, our review for Root Wellness was good. The brand adapts its name from its partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit making organization that supports planting at least a tree for every purchase made. This partnership is one reason Root Wellness is reputable in the CBD arena, besides the fact that it offers gluten-free, vegan-friendly, non-GMO, and 100% organic products. We also loved its free shipping arrangement for orders worth $50 and above, its 15% off for first-time buyers, and redeemable reward points, all of which help people save money. However, some products, like the 150 mg menthol cream, failed the CBD potency test, showing that not all of the brand’s third-party potency reports are accurate. Moreover, we did not find its official website and had to buy its products via CBD.co. Should the brand correct the few kinks, it will soar even higher in the CBD market.
