The good:

The bad:

An extensive internet search for Barlean’s found no reports of inconsistency, toxins, pesticides, metals, fake products, or unethical business practices.

Update 6/2020:

Please read this paragraph in the voice of Ron Swanson. Disregard the F grade by Center for Food Safety in 2019 (see below). The new 2020 Hemp CBD Score Card awarded Barlean’s an A score, which makes more sense. However, I maintain my stance that the Center for Food Safety rating system lacks substance. Furthermore, I would like to take this time to recognize the government’s lack of competence in both recognizing the value of hemp and evaluating the reliability of any hemp product. The government uses your tax dollars effectively.

Update 12/2019:

Barlean’s received an F grade by the Center for Food Safety for organic farming, testing, and transparency. I’ve read this report and disagree entirely.

The lousy score came mainly from Barlean’s not responding to their questionnaire. They didn’t even lab-test the companies that they were rating for transparency. Instead, they relied on the tests that the CBD companies provided (LOL). If you look at my industry report, most of the companies that tested the worst also came with inaccurate lab reports and that’s the entire reason I test lab products at CBD Examine. 

Barlean’s has one of the first and only organic certification for CBD, they’re transparent and provide lab results. This article explains many of the flaws of the Hemp CBD Scorecard. 

Other CBD Products by Barlean’s

Barlean’s offers CBD hemp extract, USDA organic CBD hemp extract, CBD soft gels, and an emulsified CBD (chocolate mint) for better absorption.

  1. Jeanne Kantianis

    I took more than one dropper and then suffered the effects of being ‘drugged’. Got extremely tired, wasn’t seeing properly, time moved slowly, didn’t recognize where I was. I was driving at the time and thought I was having a stroke until I realized the CBD overfill. Got home, sat down and closed my eyes for a couple of hours. I was essentially drugged. Got over it, but scary. That shouldn’t have happened.

  2. Janet Goble

    Answered my questions regarding Barleans and quality. Thank you for doing your testing and your honest appraisal of the product.

  3. Sherry Henderson

    My hands and feet became swollen and painful. It became difficult to control my temperature. I saw little flecks in the liquid. I would never take this again. I have taken other brands in the past and did not have these issues.

  4. Todd Ladwig

    Great product and price very effective for arthritis pain and helps with sleep.
