We purchased this CBD product and tested it at independent testing facilities to measure levels of CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids and compare the results to the manufacturer's claims. Here are the results. (Learn more about our review process.)
The unadulterated test results on this page come directly from these certificates of analysis from two independent labs, which we pay directly. These are two independent lab tests of one product, at one point in time. We do not guarantee that all products or labs will produce the same results. Lab results may differ based on the different methodologies of testing used by each lab or inconsistencies in the product. Added ingredients may affect lab results. Volume of creams and edibles may change due to factors such as temperature, and this may impact lab results. Learn more about our review process.
Green Garden Gold claims to have 25 mg of CBD per 1 mL serving. We found that each 1 mL serving contains about 55 mg of CBD.
Cost is irrelevant because I base it on lab scores and the product received two F scores.
The average full-spectrum extract (products with CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids) costs 10 cents per milligram of CBD, according to my 2020 analysis of over 800 CBD products.
• 1 oz (30 mL)
• 750 mg CBD
• Flavor: Orange
• Hemp extract
• THC: Yes (website claims full spectrum, but the box is unspecific)
• Other cannabinoids: Yes
Instructions: Use 1-2 droppers daily or as desired.
Green Garden Gold claims this is a full spectrum extract. However, the 750 mg bottle and box are unspecific on THC claims.
Our lab tests confirmed a full-spectrum hemp extract containing CBD, CBC, and trace levels of THC and other cannabinoids. However, the trace levels of THC are so low that some labs would consider this product THC free and not full spectrum.
The independent labs found that Green Garden Gold 750 mg contained 113% to 121% more CBD than suggested by their label.
See my company review of Green Garden Gold here. There are a few concerns related to my lab tests.
I calculate cost based on lab score accuracy. The product failed both lab tests and therefore, the price—which would otherwise be good—is irrelevant.
The orange flavor tastes natural and has a slightly bitter and harsh bite. It's not too bad for a hemp extract.
The labs found that the 25 mg dose had well over 50 mg of CBD. The product is unreliable based on the lab scores and I can't predict the strength of the product that you receive.
*It's common to see CBD doses at 5 mg, 15 mg, 25 mg, and 50 mg for consumer products. Researchers use much larger doses (25 mg to 1500 mg of CBD). CBD dosing is highly individualized.
The bottle and box are not specific on THC claims, which is a problem. The quality of the materials is decent.
Green Garden Gold ultimately failed the lab tests with 113% to 121% more CBD than claimed on the label. It's unknown if a CBD product will have more or less CBD after it gets F scores by independent labs. Too much CBD can make dosing tricky and make people think that CBD no longer works when using accurate doses.
