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.
Plant People claim to have 12 mg of cannabinoids per 0.5 mL serving. Lab A found 14.68 total milligrams and Lab B found 14.45 total milligrams in their 0.5 mL or half dropper. You can see that the 1-milliliter breakdown above shows an impressive amount of rare cannabinoids. However, it does not include the THC that a full-spectrum extract should.

The price came in at 10 cents per milligram of CBD, according to Lab A. That's a good deal. However, this price is based on lab results that show larger amounts of cannabinoids than claimed by Plant People. It isn't easy to value a CBD product when you can't be sure of it's CBD levels.
This is for someone who wants a broad-spectrum extract with CBD and lots of cannabinoids, but no THC. This product also includes ginger and turmeric, which can be an acquired taste. I like the business model and the environmental impact of this company but can't recommend a product with false THC claims or inaccurate cannabinoid levels.
Plant People claim this is a full-spectrum hemp extract, which suggests CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids. They do not specify CBD quantities for this product, which is not great for a CBD product.
Our lab tests found that this is not a full-spectrum extract. Full-spectrums extracts contain THC, but both lab tests found zero THC. You can find lab results on the Plant People website, but most people rely on the physical product and packaging claims. This broad-spectrum extract includes CBD, CBC, CBG, and CBN, but zero THC. It's an impressive amount of rare cannabinoids for a broad-spectrum extract. However, this product will be a disappointment for people who want a full-spectrum extract. THC is potent, even in the small doses found in hemp extracts. The missing THC could negatively impact someone who requires that extra bit of help.
Our lab results found that Plant People contained 15% to 22% more cannabinoids than suggested by their label. The tests are done at independent labs and may produce different results based on testing methodologies or inconsistencies in the product. For example, lab B didn’t find trace levels of CBDV or CBL because the trace levels found by lab A were below their level of detection for reporting. While it’s nice that you’re getting more cannabinoids, inaccurate labeling may also suggest that other products will have too little or too many cannabinoids.
Plant People suggest using this product sublingually (under the tongue).
